Varsity: On Saturday, our Christian Brothers Falcons took on the West Park Panthers in a non-league matchup. Given both teams were winless heading into the game, they were playing extra hard. The Falcons were coming off of a tough week where they lost two games to McClatchy and Folsom, this game seemed to be a must win. They did in fact come in and do what they were supposed to do, win. With a final score of 3-0, the Falcons chalked that first win in the win column of the young year.
Dominating pitching performances are hard to come by in high school baseball, but Jake Tandy (‘22) did exactly that. Through five innings, Tandy struck out ten Panthers and only allowed one hit. When asked about his performance Tandy stated, “The arm felt really live today. I was hitting with all of my pitches, they couldn’t really touch it….so yeah, felt really good”. Pitching has been a bright spot for this team, averaging thirteen punch outs in each of their four games. Whereas on the offensive side, CB has been steadily improving. Anchored by senior Giovanni Munoz’ (‘22) two hits including a clutch RBI triple, they were able to drive in three runs in the sixth inning. Munoz was asked what this win meant for the team moving forward, “This win set the tempo. Going into one of our toughest series, it’s good to get a win”. The Falcons are heading into their first league series against a solid Rio Americano Raider team. With the Capital Athletic League being so competitive this year, this series has been circled on many CB players calendars since the beginning of the season.
Moving forward, CB is more excited than ever to start league play against Rio. The first game of this series is at home on Monday 3/14 at 4:15. Falcons First!

Dive: Phifey Boyers won the Varsity Girls competition with a 207. That is a high score for any girl in a meet so far. She has been working out during the winter and looks ready to perform.
Ethan Hindman won the Varsity Boys competition. He scored a 224 and did a few new harder dives. He really impressed the boys from Rio and gave them something to work toward. Ethan befriended the other divers from Rio and was a good example of a humble winner
The new divers are progressing quickly and have been very enjoyable to work with. Both Sage Felder and Giselle Vasquez have shown great courage to learn 6 dives in a short period of time to start competing in the meets.
Swim: Excited to say that our Varsity girls pulled it out for the W, winning 88 to 85 vs Rio Americano in our first meet! Our Varsity boys came very close as well. JV teams both performed well but ultimately, Rio just had quite a bit more swimmers than we did. Overall, us coaches thought you did well! This week, we're going to focus on strategically putting together those relays, so we have winning groups in all events.
