The 2015 Lacrosse Season is underway and the boys of spring are looking forward to carrying the momentum of a strong pre-season camp in to the regular season. Coming off of a tough 2014 campaign, which had seen the loss of 12 seniors from the prior year, the Padres were decisively in rebuilding mode with a relatively young roster that started three freshmen, four sophomores and a majority of first-time varsity players. Now a year older, wiser and more mature, these young Padres have developed a perspective of what they need to do to be successful. Since the very first day, this new look team has worked tirelessly to develop their fundamentals, trying to hold themselves and each other accountable in order to prepare for the season. Their motto, “Earn It,” permeates throughout the team as they prepare to navigate a challenging 20 game schedule. Their ultimate goal - re-establish the program as a contender in the WCAL and Greater Bay Area.

The Attack Unit will be anchored by reigning Team Co-Rookie of the Year, P.J. McGloin ‘17, who led the Padre offense in Assists and Points in 2014. Sharp-shooting Man-Up specialist, Connor Glafkides ’15, returns for his senior season, looking to build off a strong finish in his junior year.  Rounding out the top line will be converted midfielder Aaron DeoCampo ‘15, who’s speed and agility will complement his line mates, giving the Padre’s attack a good balance of athleticism, vision and finishing ability.

The Padres will arguably be deepest in the Midfield, as they return several starters and most of their rotation players, only losing one significant contributor from last year’s team to graduation. Juniors Rory Uniake ’16 and Ryan Miller ’16 should find success early, building off a strong pre-Season. Senior speedster Cameron Moore ’15 will bring a change of pace to the top midfield lines, while Sophomores Keevan Chandless ’17 and Ian Schwaab ’17, an all-league honorable mention in 2014, are expected to contribute at both ends of the field and special teams. Newcomers Andrew Petroff ’16 and Peter Rossi ’16 will look to earn minutes after solid camps, with Rossi taking over primary face off duties for the Padres. Seniors Anthony Turner ’15 and Joe Knightly ’15 will provide strong leadership for the Midfield Group.

Defensively, the Padres saw the most turn over this off-season, having lost four seniors, none bigger than All-League honorable mention and Team MVP Matt Peterson.  However, the unit should have no issues picking up the slack. Returning Senior Gio Escobar ‘15, who is building off an exceptional first campaign as a full time starter, is expected to anchor the Padre Defense again in goal. Junior Ethan Pratt ’16, a D2 Commit, brings an all around skill set to the top unit, as well as speed in the transition game out of the backfield. Junior James Silva ’16, who has had an impressive off-season and is the only returning first line starter on Defense, will continue to give opposing attack players a hard time this year with his tenacity and athleticism. Newcomers Robert Dicioccio ’16 and Phil Evans ’16, and rookie Elliott Adams ’18 are all expected to contribute off the bench, and on special teams.

The Padres kick off their regular season by visiting Woodside High School on Thursday February 26th; face-off at 7 p.m.

The Serra wrestling team hosted the 2015 WCAL Wrestling Championships in the Morton Family Gymnasium on Saturday February 14th. The Padres had a very successful WCAL Championship tournament with the 2015 Varsity squad tying the following school records: Total number of WCAL Champions: 4 (1987) and qualifying all 14 weight classes for the CCS Championship (2013). The Padres ended the season in 2nd place behind the Bellarmine Bells and were Co-Champions with Riordan on the Freshman and JV Levels.

The Padres sent 5 Varsity wrestlers to the finals and came away with the 2nd most WCAL champions. Junior Marco Hernandez (120) wrestled a tough match in the finals but eventually lost to the #4 State and #1 CCS ranked Isaiah Palomino from Bellarmine. Senior Erik Clark (160) who lost in the finals last year came away with his 1st WCAL Wrestling Championship with an impressive 14-7 decision over SHCP Johnny DelBianco. Junior Dominick Christmas (195) had the toughest competition of the day with his semifinal match versus #2 CCS Ranked Julian Bermudez of Riordan in a match that Dominick dominated with a 9-3 decision. In the finals, Dominick avenged an earlier season overtime loss to #3 CCS ranked St. Francis’ Bobby Kresge and came away with the WCAL Championship with a takedown in the 3rd round for a 3-1 decision. Senior Felix Aberoutte (220) faced #6 CCS ranked David Aranda of Bellarmine in the finals. The match was close in the first period. In the 2nd period, Felix threw his opponent on his back to record the only finals pin for the Padres and be crowned WCAL Champion. The only returning WCAL Champion Joey D’Agostino (HWT) defended his title with an overtime takedown against Riordan’s Chris Stradford for a 3-1 win.

Other CCS Wrestling Championship qualifiers for the Padres were 3rd place finishers – Freshman William Tarr (140), Juniors Nick Smith (145), Ben Khoury (152) and Kenny Meitz (182) and 5th place finishers- Sophomores Kyle Shum (115) and Evan Jones (132), Juniors Sepher Pazoki (106) and Jaylyn Membreno (170), and Senior Joshua Salvatierra (126).

Next up for the Padres are the CCS Championships February 27 & 28 with the Top 3 placers earning a spot to the California State Championships. GO PADRES!!!

The Padre wrestling team traveled to San Francisco on Tuesday evening for their last WCAL Dual meet of the season versus Archbishop Riordan. The Varsity team won 39-30, JV captured a WCAL Co-Championship title with a loss to Riordan 42-33 and the Freshman team completed their 4th consecutive WCAL Championship with a 51-28 victory.

The match started at 108 pounds with Freshman Grant Cosko stepping up for the sick Sepher Pazoki and lost to a CCS Ranked opponent by pin. Sophomore Kyle Shum wrestled a tough match at 115 and was able to not get pinned or give up a technical fall saving team points. At 122, Junior Marco Henrnadez had an exciting match versus Nate Sereni (son of former Serra wrestler and Coach Jeff Sereni). Marco was ahead 7-6 with 2.7 seconds left but with a clock malfunction that seemed to give Riordan extra time, Sereni escaped at the end of regulation to tie the score 7-7. In overtime, Marco took a nice shot but Sereni was able to counter and score a takedown for a 9-7 Overtime win. At 128, Senior Joshua Salvatierra lost by a 1st round pin and Riordan extended their lead to 18-0. Sophomore Evan Jones at 134, put the first Padre points on the board with a 4-0 decision. Senior Ryan Acaby at 140 was in the match but gave up a 3rd round pin with about 30 seconds left. Serra down 24-3, Junior Nick Smith at 147  sparked a Serra Padre pinning and comeback rampage with a 1st round pin. Juniors Ben Khoury 154 and Sam Wilson 162 followed with pins of their own and a forfeit at 172 to Senior Erik Clark put the Padres ahead 27-24. The lead would not last long as Junior Jaylyn Membreno 184 lost a heartbreaker of a match. Jaylyn had his opponent on his back for an apparent pin but with no call coming from the official, Jaylyn adjusted to another move that his Riordan opponent countered and put Jaylyn on his back for the pin. Riordan was now up 30-27.  At 195, Junior Dominick Christmas was facing #3 ranked CCS opponent and the match was very exciting and ended in a tie forcing the 2nd overtime match of the night. This time the Padres were the victors at Dominick was able to get a takedown with about 15 seconds left to secure the 5-3 decision and tie the match 30-30 with 2 matches to go. Senior Felix Aberoutte at 220 won 5-2 to increase the lead 33-30. Senior Joey “Butterfly” D’Agostino secured the Padre victory with a 1st round pin of his Riordan opponent and the Padres left the city after a good scare with a win.

Next up to the Padres are the WCAL Wrestling Championships being held at Serra High February 14th.

The Padre basketball team finished up a four game homestand on Wednesday night, hosting the Crusaders from Archbishop Riordan.  The Serra defense came to play as the Padres held the Crusaders to just 36% shooting on the night in the 54-44 Padre victory.  Senior Trevor Brown had a huge night with 21 points and 7 rebounds while senior Paul Smoot contributred with 10 points and 5 rebounds.  The win puts the Padres mark at 15-4 (7-2 WCAL) on the season with a road game up next.  The Padres will travel to San Francisco to take on the Fightin' Irish of Sacred Heart Cathedral on Saturday night, tip-off is set for 6:30 pm.

The young Serra Varsity soccer team played a near complete defensive game this afternoon in a narrow 1-0 home loss to highly ranked Sacred Heart Cathedral in WCAL play.  The Padre defense, led by seniors Alex Avila and Michael Johnston had the upper hand on the Irish attack for most of the first half denying any ball to penetrate inside of 25 yards to goal.  Juniors Adam Fadden and Matt Herrera covered the wing play from the back and did well to get forward to begin many Padre counter attacks.  Junior Goalkeeper, Max Melnik, put in a Man of the Match type performance in goal in the second half making three huge saves to keep the score level.  Serra's best opportunity to get a leg up in the match came in the 65th minute when senior midfielder Michael Neher took a free kick on goal and forced the Irish keeper to make a fantastic save.  With about eight minutes to play, a collision in the Padre defensive third led to the ball bouncing between players and right to the feet of an Irish striker who had a fortunate one on one with the Padre keeper and buried the shot for the go ahead goal.  Serra turned up the intensity for the final moments of the game with several dangerous balls played into the Irish box, but the equalizer was not to be.  The Padres return to action with a trip to Mountain View this Saturday with a game against St Francis.  Kickoff is set for 11am.
