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 Padres then had a little over a week to prepare for their next match on Wednesday.

At 160, #11 Ben Khoury (S) started the Serra winning rally with a 4-3 victory over #2 Andreas Guerrero (B). Khoury was losing 3-1 and was in the bottom position with under 30 seconds in the 3rd round when he scored an escape and controversial takedown as both wrestlers went out of bounds with 2 seconds left to win 4-3. At 170, Evan Behrendt (S) won a Technical Fall (win by 15 points) over Nathan Frojelin (B) with a 17-1 victory to make the team score 33-17 in favor of Bellarmine. #3 Jaylyn Membreno (S) wrestled to a major decision (won by more than 8) over #16 Mike Belloni (B) to make it 33-21 B after the 182 pound match.

The Padre Soccer team broke through on Saturday with a major comeback win down at Valley Christian.  Trailing 2-0 at the half, junior Jack Mori put back a goal 7 minutes into the second period from a combination play with fellow junior Tony Massetti.  Less than 10 min later, the Padres would strike again after putting the Warriors under great midfield pressure.  Junior Joe Montero found the equalizer after Massetti, super soph Adam Joss, and senior Joe Berardi connected on a superb passing sequence that methodically brought the ball down up the field via the left flank and allowing time for several Serra attackers to get forward.  Joss would hit the game winner with 9 just 9 min to play when he was on the receiving end of a Montero cross inside the box.  Joss' shot was poked right under the rushing Warrior goalkeeper to seal the Padre Victory.  Junior Josh Gonzales commanded a defensive performance that strengthened as the game wore on, leaving the Warriors without a true shot on goal from the run of play the entire second half.  Serra begins the WCAL stretch run this next week finishing with 4 of final 5 games at home.  On Wednesday, they will host Sacred Heart Cathedral.  Kickoff is 3:15pm.
