The Rams got the scoring started early in the 1st quarter to go up 6-0, but the Padres answered back right away with a 20 yard TD pass from junior QB Jack Damelio to senior QB/RB Leki Nunn to make the score 7-6. St Mary's scored again, but junior RB Isiah Kendrick scored on a 43 yard TD run to put the Padres up 14-13. Junior WR Shane Villaroman scored on a 1 yard TD run to increase the Serra lead to 21-13, but St. Mary's answered with a TD of their own and failed conversion to make the score 21-19 in favor of the Padres. The Rams scored before the end of the 2nd quarter to make the score 26-21 going into the half.

Senior Leki Nunn quickly put the Padres back on top with a 96 yard kickoff return to open the 2nd half making the score 28-26 in favor of the Padres. The Rams scored 3 times in a row to go up 49-28, but junior QB Jack Damelio hit senior WR Charles Quinn for a 5 yard TD pass to tighten the gap at 49-35.

The Padres continued their strong season at CCS Finals on Friday, May 27. The 4x400m Relay team of Noriega Moffett, Jeremiah Testa, Scott Fitzpatrick and Armon Plummer earned the third straight CCS title in the event for Serra. The highly contested race was a battle among the top 3 teams in the CCS all year, with Bellarmine and Los Gatos entering the final exchange in nearly a dead heat with the Padres.
Anchor runner Plummer, was able to out kick the other teams and just missed eclipsing last year's school record by 2 hundredths of a second (3:19.45). It was the fastest a Serra team has ever run in CCS Finals. Senior pole vaulter, Talon Galvez-Bennett, did not go easy on the nerves as his CCS individual title came based on fewer misses than the second place vaulter. His clearance of 14-6 on his first attempt was the difference between gold and silver. Plummer's anchor leg closed a very busy night for him. Running in two individual events, he finished just off his personal bests for second in the 400m (48.86) and third in the 300m hurdles (38.92). Plummer's first event of the meet got the Padres' season extended one more week into the State Meet when the 4x100m Relay (Fitzpatrick, Plummer, Orlando Fuller and Obi Obodozie) raced to the third automatic qualifying spot in the event by out-leaning the fourth place team by 1 one-hundredth of a second in a time of 42.65. Obodozie moved to long jump and where his jump of 21-11 was good for third place in the competition and good for a State Meet birth.
In all, the Padres earned a ticket to the State Meet in three individual events and both relays (Plummer decided to drop the 400m and focus on his other three events). Isaiah Strong was 9th in the shot put (48-3) and Matthew Herrera finished 10th in the 800m (1:58.69).  As a team, Serra earned their third, top - 4 trophy, in four years by finishing third in the team standings.
Padres Earn Podium Finish to End Season
Serra's 4x400m Relay team capped a record setting year in the 98th California State Meet held at Buchanan High of Clovis' Veterans Stadium.  In the State Trials on Friday night, the team of Noriega Moffett, Jeremiah Testa, Scott Fitzpatrick and Armon Plummer won the third heat and obliterated last year's school record of 3:19.43 with their new record of 3:17.96.  Their time was the third fastest qualifying time among the 25 teams in the event.  The 4x100m Relay (Fitzpatrick, Plummer, Orlando Fuller and Obi Obodozie) started the meet off for the Padres and were just shy of their season best time (42.94).  Talon Galvez-Bennett cleared a very challenging opening height in the pole vault (14-8) and had narrow misses at 15-2.  Obodozie improved on his entry placement and finished 22nd (21-1.25).  Plummer raced to a lifetime best in his final race in his specialty, the 300m hurdles, and ran the fastest time in the CCS on the season, 38.53, good for 12th place.  The 4x400m Relay team returned to the track on Saturday night for the State Finals and were just off their time from the night before, 3:18.82, finishing in 6th place and earning a spot on the State Championships' podium.  The end of the season saw three of the four members of the relay return from last year's record setting team.  Armon Plummer and Jeremiah Testa qualified for the State Meet on three straight CCS Champion relay teams.  Testa becomes the first Padre to ever qualify for the State Meet all four years (member of the 4x400m Relay 2013-2016).  The relay team is now ranked 14th in CCS history and is only the 2nd team to make the top 15 since 1993.  The Padres have now qualified for the State meet 15 out of the last 16 years and had a State Finalist four years in a row.  Galvez-Bennett and Plummer, along with the relay, had the top rankings in the CCS in their events on the season.

Coming off their final dual that saw the Padres fall to Bellarmine for the WCAL title, the track and field team set their sights on the WCAL Championships.  Led by senior Armon Plummer, who won two individual events (400m - 49.55; 300m hurdles - 39.05) and ran on both relays (4x400m - 3:21.11; 4x100m - 42.43), Serra was a mere 19 points behind the Bells for the team title.  The 4x400m relay team of Noriega Moffett, Jeremiah Testa, Scott Fitzpatrick and Plummer, set a new WCAL meet record with their time.  Battling through a tough hamstring injury, senior Jordan Kenison defended his 2015 triple jump title with his jump of 43-2.5.  Isaiah Strong finished in second place for both throwing events (shot put - 49-6; discus - 140-8). Talon Bennett was second in the pole vault (14-6), Obi Obodozie was second in the long jump (21-3.5) and fourth in the 100m and 200m (11.29 and 22.98, respectively).  The 4x100m relay team of Scott Fitzpatrick, Plummer, Obodozie and Kelepi Lataimua ran their fastest time of the season and the second fastest time in the CCS for second place.  Senior Matthew Herrera ran 1:56.78 to eclipse the CCS at-large qualifying time in the 800m and earn a trip to the CCS Semi-Finals while finishing fourth overall in one of the toughest events of the night - five of the top twelve 800m runners in the CCS were all in the race and qualified for the first round of CCS.  Junior Jack Allara ran his best times of the year in both hurdle races (110HH - 15.85; 300mIH - 41.96).  Other athletes scoring valuable team points were Kwami Jones (110HH, 5th place - 16.09), Jeremiah Testa (400m, 3rd place - 50.89), Scott Fitzpatrick (400m, 4th place - 51.17; long jump, 6th place - 19-11.75), Noriega Moffett (400m, 5th place - 51.22; 200m, 5th place - 23.44), Josiah Tafilele (discus, 6th place - 134-3), Sammy Nofal (long jump, 5th place - 20-0.5), Jake Killingsworth (high jump, 4th place - 5-8) and Dustin Hatlen (pole vault, 5th place - 13-0).
The Frosh Soph team also finished second in the team competition.  Elijah Folau (discus - 131-3), Brendan Carbullido (long jump - 20-5.25) and Parker McDonald (high jump - 5-10) were all individual event winners.  Folau (shot put, 2nd place - 471), Jorden Harris (300m Intermediate Hurdles, 2nd place - 44.96), Carbullido (triple jump, 3rd place - 40-0), Sincere Jackson (65m High Hurdles, 3rd place - 10.24; 300m intermediate hurdles, 4th place - 46.80), Devin Simmons (100m, 4th place - 11.45) and Enrique Brenes (800m, 4th place - 2:03.35) all earned key points for the team with their performances.

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.
