PADRES ARE CHAMPIONS

With a proven record of athletic success and a rich tradition of strong athletic competition, championships, sportsmanship and teamwork, our athletics program is a source of pride for the entire Serra community. Our coaches are dedicated to developing men of integrity and leadership. They teach important skills that develop students’ talents and abilities. Our student-athletes compete in one of the most competitive high school leagues in California— the West Catholic Athletic League (WCAL). We are proud to note that last year, 13 of our varsity teams earned the CCS Scholastic Achievement Team designation. Our successful program also provides many opportunities for non-athletes to assume important responsibilities as trainers, social media reporters, statisticians and team managers.

The 2016 Serra varsity volleyball team had two outstanding under-classman earn their first All-League Honors.  Sophomore Setter/Opposite Hitter Zachary Smith was voted 1st Team, while Freshman Opposite Hitter Brian Ronan was voted Honorable Mention.  Zach led the team this year in hitting percentage (.189) and kills (245), and second in both assists (251) and blocks (34).  Brian led the team in serving percentage (91.7), serving points (178), and second in kills (149).  The varsity team was certainly the youngest team in the league, starting two freshman and three sophomores, with just two seniors. "Our young men played some great volleyball this year, learning to compete and play as a team at a high level. The WCAL has always been one of the top leagues for volleyball in Northern California, and to have two players recognized by the coaches shows the growth of the program this year. And while we have several young players who will continue to contribute to the improvement of the team, having Zach and Brian help lead that movement has been fun to watch," stated Coach Gary Colbert.

The JV lacrosse team had a perfect week in their games vs St. Francis High School on Thursday 4-28 and Burlingame High School on Saturday 4-30.  The Padres played their best two games of the season beating St Francis, in a very exciting game, 6-5 and defeating Burlingame, with a perfect game, by a score of 15-0.
In facing off against St, Francis Serra pulled out a close back and forth match against a strong Lancers team by scoring the go ahead goal with one minute and twenty seconds remaining in the game. Instead of tightening up and folding, the Padres did what all good teams have to do; close out the opponent. We expertly played keep away for that last minute and twenty seconds and denied St. Francis the ball and the game ended with the ball safely in a Serra stick for a 6-5 Padre win.
The Burlingame contest had been targeted by our boys all season long as a grudge match. Under the fiery leadership of junior Niko Anagnostou, who won every face off he took set the tone with his absolute stellar and aggressive play. Feeding off of that energy the Padres played a nearly perfect game. Serra put their foot to the floor and never took it off the gas until the sound of the final buzzer. The game highlights included goals by nine different players including hat tricks by junior sniper, Brendan Mallen and junior middy Dylan Cravhalo. Our well balanced scoring included two goals from freshman Brogan Reed and Brendan Callagy and goals from junior Mitchell Bowman and freshman Alberto Farias-Pintor, Randy Lewis, Owen Mulleneaux and team favorite Kevin Kanzaki.
Go Padres!

The Frosh Soph Team fell to 4-2 but were led by dual event winners Elijah Folau (shot put - 48-10; discus - 124-0) and Devin Simmons (100m - 12.25; 200m - 25.04).
