CB’s very own F/S women had their fourth straight win in only their fourth race today at Willow Hills, Folsom. With four other 9th graders already pulled up to run varsity, the CB F/S team surprised the field by winning its fourth team title in as many meets. Led by 10th grader, Tara Cooper, the CBXC team secured a 42 point win over the next closest team from El Camino. Cooper was in second place with 400m to go when she passed the leader going uphill and proceeded to run away with the race finishing the 2.11 mile race in a personal best 14:55. Newcomer, Eyvonne Nguyen stepped up after only 3 weeks with the team to finish in 9th. Anna Potter finished in 14th place with Bella Solis finishing close behind her in 16th. Rounding out the team were Arabella Lobo (22), Amelia Silva-Snow (26) and Ellie Cook (27). Great job ladies!
For the F/S men’s team, Andrew Thomson once again led the Falcons with a 9th place finish. Newcomer, Neel Machandra, fresh off pre-season basketball, showed up to run, finishing 17th overall. Preston Rabey finished a couple places behind Machandra to help lead the CB to a 3rd place team finish. Other runners included in the scoring were Adam Sunderman and Will Pletcher. Congratulations!
As mentioned above, with four 9th graders teaming up with Junior Allie Moya, these young women really rose to the occasion. In only their second 5K race, Elise Henderson, Ella Johl, and Elise Perkins surprised the field by leading CB varsity to a second place team finish against a very talented Alameda HS. With Allie Moya struggling today, these three young ladies took up the mantle and really ran solid times. A fourth 9th grader, Marina Noey, rounded up the scoring for CB. With these four, and the other 7 coming up behind them, CB women might just be a force for sometime to come!
For the CB Varsity men’s team, 10th grader Sam Nealon once again led all scorers with his 15th place. Sami Bateman finished closely behind in 18th. Other scorers for CB included Junior Tyler Simi, 9th grader, Alex Potter, and 10th grader, Reign Saldana!
In the JV races, Junior, Caitlin Drew finished her 2 mile race taking second place while Senior, Nick Gustafson, earned a 27th place finish but in a very respectable 14:06!
Congratulations to all Falcons for very successful running in less than ideal conditions.
Next Up: El Dorado HS 10 mile Coed Relay at Folsom College Saturday, October 9th, 2021.
After opening their league play with a decisive victory, the Lady Falcons entered the second week of the season with a pair of Eagles on the schedule.
On Tuesday, the girls faced-off against their rivals, the Vista del Lago Eagles. In recent years these two teams have gone back-and-forth on the court, but this time the team from Folsom scored the 8-1 win.
The CB girls put up a fight in several matches – with Jamie Ancog ’23 (4-6, 3-6), Simone LeForestier ’22 (4-6, 6-5, 10-12) and the team of Graciela Diaz ’23 and Alessandra Salvini ’23 (4-6, 4-6) pushing their opponents to the limit. The doubles team of Malia Scullary ’23 and Mae Steenhausen ’25 were also tested before breaking through in the win column (7-6 (7-1), 7-5).
The team turned things around in a big way on Thursday, beating the undermanned El Camino Eagles by a score of 9-0. On the singles side Lena Mikacich ’22 (6-1, 6-0), Jamie Ancog ’23 (6-0, 6-1) and Diaz ’23 (6-2, 6-1) all scored easy victories. Scullary ’23 and Jolie Utter ’24 teamed up for a 6-0, 6-1 doubles win. The most exciting match of the day featured Magi Beistert ’24, who scored a 7-5 exhibition victory. The
Lady Falcons will hit the road next week, traveling to Rio Americano on Tuesday and to Del Campo on Thursday.
Varsity: The Falcons took the field Saturday night for the first time at Peter Bollinger stadium with fans in attendance, and they did not disappoint. The offense took control early with quarterback Jake Elorduy connecting with reciever Phillip Bell for a 7-0 lead, but they did not stop there. Early in the 2nd quarter, senior DJ Crowther ran it into the end zone, followed by a rushing touchdown by junior Landon Howard. The falcons took a commanding 21-3 lead into the half. Coming out of the break, the falcons defense would stand their ground and not allow another score the rest of the way. In the 4th quarter, Elorduy and senior Jackson Burleson would add rushing touchdowns, as the Falcons ended up taking care of the Raiders with a final score of 35-3.
JV: The Christian Brother JV football team entered their sixth game of the season 3-1-1 against a strong Rio Americano team that was 2-1. For the third week in a row the CB defense set the tone only giving up 7 points and having over 6 tackles for losses and 1 sack. Jordan Howell ’24 and Weston Green ’24 had 2 ½ and 1 ½ TFL’s respectively. The key turning point in the game was early in the third quarter with game tied 7-7, Rio went for a 4th and 1 on their own 38 and Robert Spore ’25 made the stop for no gain. Christian Brothers went on to score after that stop taking a 13-7 lead, CB scored 12 unanswered points after that stop. The offense was led by William Littlejohn ’24 who was 8-14 passing for 135 yards 1 TD (averaged over 16 yards per completion) and 37 yards rushing with 1 TD. Receiving was led by Kamari Simpson ’24 with 3 catches for 70 yards and 1 TD, averaging over 23 yards per reception. Sammie Outlaw had 3 catches for 43 yards, averaging over 14 yards per reception. Joe Pelka had 67 yards and 1 TD on 16 carriers averaging over 4 yards per carry. It was a great victory and strong team effort to keep the Falcons in contention for the league championship.
