Nancy and Phil Mundy
Nancy and Phil made invaluable contributions of their time and talents to Chaminade since the mid 1980’s.  They were Boosters from 1986-1996, including Phil being President from 1993-1996.  Nancy became a member of Les Dames de Chaminade in 1996.  Phil was on Board of Directors from 1996-2001, and Chair of the Board from 1999-2001, and they were both honored as Founders in 2004.

We honor Nancy and Phil for their contributions to Chaminade athletics, for their inspiration and guidance in making a Chaminade athletic event a pleasure for the spectators.  Through their work with the Boosters, they rented a small trailer to provide drinks and a little food at football games.  Phil and Nancy wanted to upgrade the concessions provided to enhance the experience for the spectators and to make more money for the athletic program, so they and the Boosters took over the concessions operations.

The concession stand continued to grow, in large part as a result of Phil and Nancy’s efforts to get other parents to donate food and time.  Nancy would be at the school every Friday afternoon to oversee the arrival of the food and paper products.  Nancy and Phil supervised about 60 volunteer parents for Junior Varsity and Varsity football games, rotating them so that they could watch their sons play in the games.

In 1997, a permanent concession stand was built at Chaminade and it was natural that it be named “Mundy’s Place.”  The concessions you enjoy today at a game are the direct result of the efforts and vision of Nancy and Phil Mundy.

Stephen Stark '81
Steve was an outstanding Eagle baseball player.  He began his career as a freshman, starting in three varsity games.  In his junior year, Steve received many awards: 1st Team Santa Fe League, All League, Most Valuable Defensive Player, and All League 1st team. With Steve as pitcher, the team defeated Notre Dame for the first time in the school’s history.

As a senior, Steve pitched to defeat Crespi for the first time ever, and was Player of the Year, Santa Fe League and All CIF.  His record was 7-1 with a .96 ERA, 95 strikeouts in 48 innings and he threw back-to-back one-hitters.  He played on the West Team in the Olympic Sports Festival in 1981.

The summer of 1981, after he graduated, Steve was named the division All Star in the American Legion season with a record of 14-1.

Steve attended Stanford University on a full baseball scholarship, receiving the first Division I baseball scholarship in Chaminade history.  As a freshman, he was one of 22 out of 46 players who made the traveling team.  During fall practice at Stanford, he hit John Elway in the shoulder during practice and nearly altered the course of NFL history. He struck out Barry Bonds, when Bonds was a freshman at Arizona State University.  Steve retired from baseball after he was injured during his sophomore year.
