Bud Ogden ’69 was inducted into the seventh annual West Coast Conference 2015 Hall of Honor class. Ogden was a catalyst for the Santa Clara men's basketball team amidst one of its most successful runs in program history. He proudly represented the Broncos from 1966-1969 and led Santa Clara to two NCAA tournament appearances. Ogden was named to the WCC All-Conference first team in 1968 and 1969, which followed a second team selection in 1967. Furthermore, Ogden was honored as an All-American selection in 1969 by the Helms Foundation and the USBWA as he led the Broncos to a No. 3 national ranking.
Darrell Igelmund ’69 writes, "Sold my electronic test equipment company and patents (Byte Brothers, Inc. of Seattle) to Jewell Instruments/Triplett of Manchester, NH. The factory was relocated from Seattle to New Hampshire in August. A big thanks to Santa Clara's engineering school for helping this once young guy from New York get off to a good start and standing by me after I received an F in second-year physics (a victim of too much fun!)"
