Girls Tennis has a great week on the Court

Hello Chaminade tennis players and followers! Here is the latest court news!

 On September 5, the Varsity ladies got on the road to face a monster in the landscape of girls’ tennis, West Ranch, a division 1 high school. As we all know a division rank is correlated with the expertise and experience of a tennis player, but this was not enough for our very own Sofia Lazzaroni as she lost the first match 0/6 but cleaned the house in her last two matches with a 6/1 and 6/2 win. And in doubles, Annie Cygan and Laurin Rubin showed no fear as they competed like a division 1 team and proudly losing 5/7 in their last match. Coach Quijano said “yes, they were all tough matches and lost but, we gained experience and knowledge to be very strong tennis players to come.”


The West Ranch experience must’ve been an inspiration for the Eagles as our girls took Archer by the horns on September 6 with outstanding performances in singles and doubles. First, Sofia De Belles takes her opponents down 6/0, 6/2 and 6/0 and Claire Perez- Korinko and Ally Weinstock showed no mercy in doubles by taking her opponents 6/4, 6/0 and 6/1 respectively.


Toward the end of the week, the wining rush is not over, and nothing can be more impressive in tennis than seeing a player imposing her game on her opponent by dictating every point in a match, and this was certainly the situation against Mayfield Preparatory.  The Eagles were flying high and despite Kai Nikchevich lost in singles, Tatiana Hajjar and Alexis Brinkman earned their opponents respect by wining every match 6/2, 7/5 and 6/2 respectively.

Chaminade Football takes away lessons from loss to St. John Bosco

Written by Evan Barnes - Daily News

Chaminade head coach Ed Croson wanted his team’s nonleague matchup with St. John Bosco to be a learning experience for the CIF-SS Division 1 playoffs. After losing 31-17 to Bosco at El Camino College Friday, the Eagles, ranked No. 6 in the state by Cal-Hi Sports, learned plenty and even gained confidence despite their first loss of the season.  “We know we can compete with these guys. It’s just a matter of a few big plays,” senior Alex Gubner said. “You figure out your flaws in a loss and get better.  

The past two seasons, Chaminade had its season ended by Corona Centennial in the playoffs. Facing Bosco, the No. 2 team in Cal-Hi Sports’ state rankings and in the top 10 of several national polls, the Eagles only trailed 7-0 at halftime.  Bosco then found its groove on the legs of Re-al Mitchell, Demetrious Flowers and George Holani. The trio combined for 244 rushing yards, with Holani scoring on a 37-yard touchdown late in the fourth. Mitchell ran for a 1-yard score and added a 3-yard pass to Joshua Delgado.  Flowers ran for 98 yards on 18 carries and Holani ran for 92 yards. Mitchell had 54 rushing yards to go with 216 yards on 17-for-26 passing

Bosco led 24-7 after Delgado’s touchdown but Chaminade rallied late with a 36-yard field goal from Jonah Lipel and 32-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Stevens to Mac Griffin.  Chaminade’s defense kept the game close with Michael Erhart recovering a first quarter fumble to thwart a scoring threat at the 2-yard line. Christopher Rankins ended the first half with an interception and Gubner and Matt Bohamed also had sacks.  Bosco’s (2-1) lone first half score came thanks to an 83-yard interception return by Ohio State commit Jaiden Woodbey.

Chaminade’s offense only mustered 84 yards in the first half but came alive in the third when Stevens found Michael Wilson for an 80-yard touchdown to cut the lead to 17-7. With Stanford’s David Shaw watching on the sidelines, Wilson delivered a strong effort in front of his future college coach with four catches for 130 yards.

“We learned it’s definitely a mental game. A lot of guys were nervous in the first half but in the second half, we realized we could beat them,” Wilson said.

Stevens threw for 208 yards but also had two interceptions, with Jake Bailey picking him off on Chaminade’s opening drive of the second half. Andrew Van Buren, who rushed for 320 yards and seven touchdowns in his first two games, was held to 79 yards on 14 carries and did not score.



After a hard fought 17-31 loss to # 4 in the nation St. John Bosco, the Chaminade Eagles have moved up to # 9 in the nation and # 4 in California.  The team is currently 2-1 overall with a game this week against Baskersfield aat 7:00pm for Homecomeing.  Congrats to Coach Croson and the team on a great start to the season.

Chaminade football gets physical in win over Mountain Pointe

Article written by Evan Barnes - Daily News

MISSION VIEJO >> Chaminade’s formula for winning this season has been pretty clear. Be physical and lean on its offensive line.

At Mission Viejo Thursday, the recipe worked again in the Eagles 35-22 win over Mountain Pointe (Arizona) in the Under Armour Brothers in Arms Classic. Andrew Van Buren ran for four touchdowns and 137 yards thanks to his line slowly wearing down Arizona’s No. 2 ranked team.

“We’re trying to make a statement,” senior Dylan Kellogg said. “We have a great running back and with us combined, great things can happen.”

Chaminade’s defense also came ready thanks to two interceptions from Christopher Rankins and another physical effort led by James Thomas, Alex Gubner and Blake Antzoulatos.

Rankins’ interceptions not only opened the second and third quarter, his long returns set up scoring drives. Van Buren scored his first touchdown on a 3-yard run and Jonah Lipel later converted a 26-yard field goal.

“If I see the ball, I’m trying to get it,” Rankins said. “We’re trying to get turnovers on every possession.”

 The defense also had three sacks, including one by Parks Gissinger. Adonis Brown also blocked a field goal in the second half.

Despite the 8 p.m. start at Mission Viejo, Chaminade (2-0) wasted little time scoring thanks to a 77-yard touchdown catch by Michael Wilson from Ryan Stevens on the game’s third play. Van Buren added two more touchdowns in the first half on 21 and 10 yards before scoring his fourth in the fourth quarter.

The Boise State commit already has eight touchdowns in two games.

“When the running game is going, you can control the game and with Drew doing his thing, I can’t complain at all,” Wilson said.

Stevens also had two interceptions, one returned for a touchdown by Marshawn Gibson. Jakim McKinney had two rushing touchdowns for Mountain Pointe (1-1).

Now Chaminade turns its attention to next week with a mega showdown with defending Open Division state champion St. John Bosco at El Camino College. It’s a matchup Chaminade usually faces in the CIF-SS Division 1 playoffs and now it will be a solid test after two impressive wins.

“They’re as good as it gets in America,” Chaminade coach Ed Croson said.
