What a busy week we had last week! The Varsity team had two scrimmages, both on the road. Monday, we played Pleasant Grove at Rancho Murieta Country Club. Sophomore Hannah Stouder started off on fire with three early birdies and ended up shooting an even par 36 on a very difficult course with temperatures around 105 degrees. Senior Nicole Staggs shot a very nice 39. On Wednesday, we played Davis HS at Wildhorse Golf Course. Hannah led us once again with a 37, while senior Brie Briggs shot a 39 and sophomore Chloe Tam had a 45.
We welcomed our JV team on Tuesday and are extremely excited to have so many new girls in our program. We have a total of 11 JV players to go along with our 9 Varsity players. Our varsity girls did a great job of helping everyone feel a part of the family! We had some good practices and we had a total of 16 girls attend our first Strength and Conditioning session on Friday, thanks to great leadership from our veteran golfers.
On Friday the Christian Brothers Women's Varsity Volleyball team opened up vs one of the top teams in the section the Whitney Wildcats at home. Although the Lady Falcons came up short in their season opener it was a very exciting match and growing opportunity for this young Falcons team. Whitney came out in the end with the win in 5 sets 25-18 18-25 25-23-25-21 15-13.
Our Lady Falcons Varsity team will take the court on Monday 8/22 vs another tough opponent the Cousumnes Oaks Wolfpack at 7 PM in Elk Grove.
As always the Falcons schedule a tough early season schedule to prepare them for a grueling playoff run where the expectation at the end is to win a section title.
Overall 0-1 League 0-0

The 2022 Christian Brother Falcons started off the season facing Elite Public Charter Hight School out of Vallejo. Elite Public High School is a new school that had one team of freshman, sophomores and juniors. The Falcons were led by sophomore defensive captain Joe Pelka '25 and offensive captain freshman Dillion Wegner '26. The Falcons put up a tough fight but went down to Eagles 28-34 late into the fourth quarter. The defense lead by Joe Pelka '25 played aggressive against a very talented Elite offense. The defense had one interception and one sack by sophomores Daniel Powers '25 and Sean Romero '25 respectively. The CB defense held the junior heavy Eagles to 40 yards rushing, 37 total offensive plays and two touchdowns. In his first High School start freshman Dillion Wegner '26 went 11-18 for 175 yards two touchdowns and 1 interception. Joe Pelka had 12 carries for 46 yards and two touchdowns.

The Falcons hope to rebound this Friday Night at home against Pleasant Grove High.
Our Falcons hosted Burbank last Friday and started the season with a dominating performance winning 39-0.
