Parker Sports Wrap 2/19 - 2/25

Girls Soccer -
The Girls Soccer team saw their season come to an end on Tuesday, as they fell to Olympian High School in the first round of the CIF Division 2 playoffs by a final score of 3-2.  After falling behind 3-0, Senior Lakme Caceres and Junior Maya Pratt-Freedman both scored goals in what was a valiant comeback effort.

The Lancers finished the season with an overall record of 14-10-2, including a winning record of 4-3-1 during Coastal League play.  Senior Rebecca Siegler led the team in points, scoring 19 goals and recording 9 assists on the season.

Boys Soccer -
While the Boys soccer team finished their season last week, It was still a newsworthy week for the Lancers, as Senior Ben Krongard was named as the CIF Spirit of Sport award recipient from San Diego County for all male winter sports athletes.  This well deserved honor caps off what has been a sensational career for Ben, both on and off the soccer field.  Congratulations to him!

Girls Basketball -
The Girls Basketball team saw their season come to an end on Wednesday evening, as they fell in the first round of the CIF Division 2 playoffs, losing at home to Lincoln High School by a final score of 51-31.  

They finished the season with an overall record of 12-12.  On the year, Senior Giselle Alota averaged 17 points per game, and capped off her career with just over 1,400 points scored during her 4 years.  Senior Jula Harrington led the Lancers in rebounding this season, pulling down 8.5 rebounds per contest.

Boys Basketball -
After going 2-0 on the week, the Boys Basketball is alive and thriving in the CIF San Diego Section Division 2 playoffs!

On Tuesday night, they traveled to Serra High School and defeated the Conquistadors by a final score of 61-49.  Junior Matt Bender led the way offensively for the Lancers, scoring 20 points in addition to pulling down 16 rebounds.  Sophomore Miles Williams hit 4 three-pointers on his way to scoring 15 points in the victory.

On Friday, the Lancers were road warriors again, traveling to Montgomery High School, where they rallied in the second half to take down the top seeded Aztecs by a final score of 80-76.  5 of the 6 Lancers who played on Friday scored in double figures.  Matt Bender and Max Guinn each posted double-doubles in points and rebounds with 18/17, and 15/11 respectively.  Sophomore Kimo Ferrari had a double-double of his own, pouring in 17 points to go along with his 10 assists.

Friday’s victory has earned the Lancers a trip to the semifinals this coming Wednesday, 2/28, when they will travel to Otay Ranch High School to take on the Mustangs in a 7pm tilt.  Should they emerge victorious, they would earn a birth in the Division 2 Championship game, which takes place next Saturday, 3/3 at 8pm at San Marcos High School

Boys Golf -
Boys golf was the first of the spring sports to get underway, as they held two matches last week.  In both matches on Tuesday and Thursday, the Lancers came away victorious, defeating Escondido Charter by an average of 73 strokes.  Junior Nicholas Trimble was the medalist in both matches, shooting a season best 35 in Thursday’s victory.  

The team will play two matches next week, both vs La Jolla High School, on Wednesday and Thursday, 2/28 and 3/1.  Both will start at 3pm and will be played at Riverwalk Golf Club.
