On Monday, August 25, the Lancers played Horizon on the Friars Course at Riverwalk.  Snigdha was again Parker's low scorer.  One of the highlights of the day was when one of our girls hit a shot into the back of Coach Z’s golf cart.

The Lancers finished the week, Wednesday, August 26, on the Oaks Course at  Sycuan CC.  Snigdha shot a personal best score and was Parker’s low scorer.  Courtney Kim had the second-lowest score for the Lancers.

The team will be back in action Monday, September 8, against Bishops.

2013-2014 Sports Wrap Final


Our baseball team finished the season with a 22-9 overall and a CIF D3 championship after their two big wins last week.  On Tuesday, June 3, the Lancers defeated Santana 6-1 in the CIF semi-finals.  Nick Allen went 2 for 4 with 3 RBI’s.  Jonathan Vizcaino was 3 for 4 with a run scored.  Austin Rogers went 1 for 2 with 2 runs scored.  Jake Wiegand pitched five innings and allowed one earned run to secure the victory.

On Friday, the Lancers defeated Mt. Carmel 6-4 in ten innings to win the CIF title.  In the top of the tenth, Jonathan Vizcaino had the big hit, a two RBI triple to break the tie.  Hayden Hastings went 2 for 5 with 4 RBI’s.  Grant Shives was a bull on the mound, pitching nine innings, allowing just two earned runs and recorded the win.  Austin Rogers was outstanding in the field, recording 10 putouts, including two run saving catches.


The Lancers sent three athletes to the CIF Individual Championship.  Matthew Miller was a top 16 seed as a result of his Coastal League Championship.  Matt lost a very tight match against a talented player from Westview. The junior duo of Alec Morgan and Pedro Gallardo won their first two matches before losing to a team from Rancho Bernardo.  Coach Lewis said the duo played their best tennis of year in this exciting match.  The future looks bright for Lancer Tennis.


The Lancers qualified for the CIF Team Championship at Admiral Baker.  The Lancers shot 405, their lowest score of the season, but unfortunately missed the cut for day two as a team.  Alan Tom and Fred Copley qualified for day two as individuals.  Both boys shot a 76 and missed the cut for the regionals.  Our young team finished the season strong, and are looking forward to next year.

Track and Field

Our track team was represented at the CIF Finals by Max Baez and Christian SourapasMax, a sophomore, ran a personal best 4:27.9 in the 1600m to finish in 17th place.  His effort on the last lap to pass seven racers was extremely impressive.  Christian, a junior, finished in 6th place in the 100m with a time of 11.04 and 4th place in the 200m in a time of 22.28.  Running against the top sprinters in the county, he turned many heads with his blazing speed. Great job Lancers!


The Lancers were seeded #2 into the Southern California Regional Championship.  On Tuesday, May 27 the Lancers defeated Crossroads 25-23, 25-15,25-22.  Alec Chambers continued to carry a bulk of the offensive load with 20 kills and a .362 hitting percentage.  Freshman, Adam Gordon tallied 10 kills and was lethal from the service line.  Derek Polk passed well in serve receive and had 20 digs.   Finally, Reece Salmons had 42 assists and 8 digs.

On Thursday, May 29, after a slow start, the Lancers played perhaps their best match of the year in a loss against Saddleback Valley Christian.  The Lancers lost games two and three by identical scores of 25-23 and had chances in both games.  Alec Chambers and Adam Gordon continued their offensive exploits.  Cameron Burnett returned to the line-up after being out for six weeks and provided a nice spark.  Andre Boyance and Daniel Jocobsen had their best blocking match of the year.  Finally Reece Salmons who is rapidly developing into one of the top setters in the county, played flawlessly.
