Remembering Coach Irv St. John

Wins and losses didn’t define former Duluth East coach St. John

Irv St. John made a name for himself through athletics, but the former Duluth East boys basketball coach and athletic director’s reputation was built on much more than wins and losses.

Current AD Shawn Roed was a student at East when St. John was overseeing the athletic department. According to Roed, St. John was known around school to “bleed red and gray through and through.”

“It was always a highlight to see Irv and to hear his stories over the years,” Roed said. “He will forever hold a special place in the history of Duluth East High School as a teacher, Hall of Fame coach and athletic director.”

St. John, indeed, is a Hall of Famer — multiple times over. He was inducted at Bemidji State, by the NSIC and the Minnesota Basketball Coaches Association. He was deserving of all the accolades, both for the success he achieved and how he achieved it. He shared the love.

In addition to the thank-you notes to myriad groups, Miernicki said, St. John also “would send doughnuts to the custodians at the end of the season because they pulled out the bleachers and lowered the baskets and showed up when we had games on Saturday.

“He was a very kind man.”

Chase DeDominces (1994-2015)

Chase unexpectedly passed away at the young age of 20. Chase played a lead role during the 2012-2013 campaign, leading his team to the Section Semi-Final. Chase won the 2012-2013 Ironman Award and The Glove Award (Best Defender). His friendship, his devotion, his endless support, and his selflessness will always be remembered.

“Not everyone can be the best player, but anyone can be the hardest worker”

 –Chase DeDominces

Obituary from the Duluth News Tribune; 3/25/2015

Chase Hunter DeDominces, 20, lifelong resident of Duluth, passed away Monday, March 23, 2015 the result of a snowmobile accident.

He was born Nov. 21, 1994 in Duluth to Rod and Terrie DeDominces. He graduated with Honors in 2013 from East High School and was currently on the Dean's List at UMD pursuing a degree in civil engineering.

Chase was like a brother to many and a friend to all. His upbeat personality and contagious smile would lighten up any room. He was adventurous and more than anything, loved to have fun. Fishing and hunting with his dog Blue were his passions in life. If you didn't know where Chase was, you were sure to find him on a northern Minnesota lake or in the woods. Chase was also an unbelievably caring individual, who would help anyone without hesitation. A competitive and talented athlete in many sports, Chase was a leader both on and off the field. Preceded in death by grandmother, Nancy (Dryke) DeDominces and grandfather, Paul Hunter. Survived by his parents; grandmother, Donna Hunter: grandfather, Anthony DeDominces; aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and his furry brothers, Tucker and Blue.

Servant Leadership

Our program believes in developing Servant-Leadership as one of its primary goals. A servant-leader focuses primarily on the growth and well-being of people and the communities to which they belong. While traditional leadership generally involves the accumulation and exercise of power by one at the “top of the pyramid,” servant leadership is different. The servant-leader shares power, puts the needs of others first and helps people develop and perform as highly as possible.
