The Damien Spartans entered the CIF-SS Division 5 Championship playoffs as the favorites to win it all, and they did just that.
Lauren Peters, a senior at San Gabriel Mission High School, has signed to play volleyball for Concordia College. The announcement was made on April 23.
With Mission League title implications at stake on Tuesday (heading into this week, the second-to-last of the regular season, Alemany held just a one game lead over Harvard-Westlake for second place in the Mission League standings), it would be the home Warriors to strike last and emerge (for now) as the top dog.
The Crescenta Valley Tournament’s second day was filled with exciting volleyball, as two of our diocesan teams captured fifth place in their respective divisions.
In sports, it’s not how you start; it’s how you finish. Take the first games of the Damien Spartans’ Boys Volleyball team in each of its three matches Friday at the annual Crescenta Valley Volleyball Tournament. No please, take them; Damien lost each of them (by a combined score of 75-53). Thankfully for head coach Randy Bohlmann’s Spartans, each of their matches shared another trend: a game two in which, somewhere along the line, the Green Gang shifted into a whole different gear and amped up both its energy and execution.
Defending CIF champs St. Paul squad surged forth with a 12-2 onslaught that earned the Lady Swordsmen their second mercy rule victory in as many tries against La Salle's Lady Lancers, this time by a score of 15-5.
The 57th annual Mt. SAC Relays came to a close at 11:09 p.m. Saturday night, marking the end of an era. This year was the last year that these famous relays will be held at Hilmer Lodge Stadium on the Mt. San Antonio College Campus due to upcoming major renovations to the stadium. But it went out with a bang, with many strong performances and a broken record.
Arguably the premier annual track and field event in the nation, the Mt. SAC Relays at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, California give fans a chance to watch the world’s most elite athletes not only of today (U.S. superstar Alyson Felix is set to compete), but also of the future. Several high school stars impressed during Friday’s events under the bright lights of Mt. SAC.
It’s not often you can see a top five high school lacrosse team and top five high school volleyball team play on the same day, let alone on the same campus. But yesterday was not a typical day at Loyola High School.
For high school track and field enthusiasts, it doesn’t get much better than the Arcadia Invitational. Billed as “The Home of National Records,” the annual showcase attracts the top track and field student-athletes in the country, and even the world.
But while this year’s event hosted participants from as far away as New Zealand, some of the weekend’s best performances came courtesy of student-athletes who attend school in our very own archdiocese.
