House Director Karen Matuszek was the founding Dean of Eveslage House. During the first Deans’ retreat in 2005, she
chose the name “Eveslage” for three reasons. “First and foremost, I felt it was important to have at least one House name that was uniquely Moeller, while retaining the Marianist heritage theme,” she explained. “Bro. Larry Eveslage,
S.M., devoted 71 of his 90 years to the Marianists, and he was the first principal of Moeller (1960-1967). Secondly, I knew Bro. Larry personally. I was privileged to work with him at Purcell Marian during the last 10 years of his life. Last
, but not least, at well over six feet tall, he was a giant of a man. With the Captains and other students I have in Eveslage, I know we’ll have a ‘giant’ of a House.”
Her prediction proved prophetic, for Eveslage won the first Marianist Cup that year. Since then, Bro. Larry’s House has earned the coveted Cup four more times: 2008, 2010, 2011, 2013 and tied in 2015.
