Football Game of the Week: SI playing for more than CCS Open title against Bellarmine

By Jeremy Balan

The St. Ignatius football team’s matchup against Bellarmine in the Central Coast Section Open Division championship on Friday night may not be the biggest game in the school’s long football history, but it’s awfully close.

It would be hard to argue anything can top last season’s win over eternal rival Sacred Heart Cathedral in front of 12,000 fans at AT&T Park in the Division III championship, but that was the end of the season for the Wildcats.

Much more is on the line Friday.


Boys Basketball: Riordan blows away Mission in Crusader Classic opener

By Jeremy Balan

The Riordan boys basketball team will look significantly different and likely be a lot better when its highly-touted transfers become eligible in January, but the group it put on the floor Wednesday wasn’t too shabby.

The Crusaders shot nearly 65 percent from the floor and had four players score in double figures in a runaway 75-46 win over Mission in the first round of the Crusader Classic at Riordan.

Game of the Day – Mission vs. Riordan boys basketball: Hopes are high for the Crusaders this season and they’ll get a test early against the defending AAA champions. The Bears’ football players will look to shake off some rust, specifically standout point guard Antoine Porter, after playing in the AAA football championship less than a week ago.

Girls Basketball: Sacred Heart Cathedral routs shorthanded Lowell

By Jeremy Balan

Last season, the Lowell girls basketball team beat Sacred Heart Cathedral with standout Irish guard GeAnna Summers-Luaulu on the bench and the Cardinals got their own taste of how difficult it can be to beat a quality opponent without their best player on Tuesday.

Without starting point guard and reigning Academic Athletic Association Player of the Year Katarina Lum due to an ankle injury, the Cardinals got consumed by an athletic and opportunistic Irish defense in Sacred Heart’s 64-30 non-league win at Lowell.

Girls Basketball: Mehta’s last-second free throws push International past Galileo

By Jeremy Balan

If the International girls basketball team was looking to fill the void of leadership left by standout guard Denia Ebersole, it got a good glimpse of who will occupy that role on Monday night.

But it’s not one player that will carry the Jaguars this season – it’s a pair.

Guards Natalie Kelly and Shayna Mehta combined for 41 points, including all of the Jaguars’ 14 points in the fourth quarter, in International’s 50-48 non-league home victory over Galileo.

Cross Country: University girls capture 10th state championship

By Mitch Stephens

Jim Tracy and the University girls cross country team captured their on-going record 10th Division V state championship and fourth in a row Saturday at Woodward Park in Fresno.

Though it was University’s highest winning total with 114 points (low score is best in cross country) over Thacher of Ojai (124), Lick-Wilmerding (130) and Branson of Ross (141), Tracy was ecstatic.

Under clear, calm and cool conditions, the Red Devils were paced by senior Jennie Callan, who took 10th while covering the rolling 3.1-mile course in 19 minutes, 6 seconds, well back of repeat individual winner Julia Maxwell (17:26).


Football: St. Ignatius makes fourth-quarter comeback to take down Mitty in CCS semifinal

By Jeremy Balan

SAN JOSE – There was no panic in the St. Ignatius football team when it trailed Mitty 22-17 late in the fourth quarter of the Central Coast Section Open Division semifinal.

After a magical trip to the CCS Division III championship last season, the Wildcats are battle tested in tight playoff games, and it showed in their 25-22 win on Saturday night at Independence High School.
