    WATER POLO HEADS INTO THE PLAYOFFS AFTER SUCCESSFUL 2ND SEASON
    In only their second season of existence, the Lancer Water Polo program has had a trademark year, finishing the regular season with a record of 17-9 and earning the #6 seed in the CIF Division 3 Playoffs.

    After winning only 1 varsity game in the program’s inaugural season, Head Coach Sam Busby led the team to a 2nd place finish in the City Conference, going 8-3 in league matches.  Coach Busby was effusive in his praise of team, stating “We have great senior leadership on display. Our seniors are showing by doing, and the overall team commitment level has improved tremendously, which has been apparent in the results.  It was exciting to win both matches vs Santa Fe Christian and split with La Jolla Country Day.”


    Several of those seniors have been huge forces for the Lancer offense, with Matt Bender (122 points) and Andres Heredia (82 points) leading the team in scoring.  Another senior, Adam Nussbaum leads all players with 70 assists. Busby also recognized Junior goalkeeper Spencer Lafferty as being an integral part of the team’s success


    According to Heredia, improvements in fundamentals have been the key to the team’s consistency.  “Advances in skills and game knowledge from each individual has allowed us to play better together as team,” Heredia said.  “There has been stark improvement in swimming, ball skills, leg strength, and endurance levels of the entire team.”

    The Lancers will begin the playoffs on Tuesday, 10/30, when they take on Oceanside High School in a first round match at 3:30pm at West Hills High School.  Should they win, they would advance to the quarterfinals on Friday, 11/2, where they would face 3rd seeded Bonita Vista. Regardless of how or when the season finishes, the future is incredibly bright for Parker Water Polo.
    “My fondest takeaways from this season come from the overall process and journey that our team has gone through,” said Heredia.  We have built a very positive and constructive team culture where everyone is very supportive and is conducive the overall growth of the program.  Hopefully we can end the season by winning CIF and bringing Parker water polo’s first ever title home.”

And on Sunday, seniors Nick Gustafson and Bijan Sagart took third in the CBVA tournament. Well done boys!
     
    Then on Thursday, the boys were back in league action, facing Point Loma. Our 1 and 2 team took early wins. On the one court, Mark served a fantastic fifteen serves in a row, including several aces, resulting in a 21-5 final score in the second game. Over at the 2 court, seniors Bijan Sagart and Axel Youngdale also finished in two games, 21-12, 21-14. One of the more memorable points was a beautiful pass from Axel, which Bijan rewarded with a straight down kill that left all who saw mesmerized. “It was one of the greatest hits I’ve ever seen,” Axel recounted to his teammates.
     
    The 3 court was a close battle. Andreas and Jackson took the second game and were able to come back from a large deficit in the third game because they adapted to their opponents, partially from their own keen observations as well as key advice from Spencer. They lost by just two points in the third. On the 4 court, juniors Billy Harrington and Rodrigo Gallardo had only six points separating them from the win. Regardless, they deserve praise for their hard work in practice, which has kept them in our top five teams. With those two losses, it all came down to court 5, featuring juniors Ben Sheres and Alex Hernandez. The boys’ smart shots and solid defense allowed them to press ahead in the third game, finishing with a 15-13 final score.
    Next week, the boys have another Thursday match. They will face Clairemont at OB at 4. As always, we thank all the parents and fans who come out to support. Go Parker!

    Baseball Coach David Glassey Honored with Hall of Fame Induction
    Upon announcing his retirement after last weekend’s CIF Division 2 Championship game, longtime Parker baseball coach David Glassey was selected for induction into the California Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
     
    Upon learning of the honor, Glassey reflected on some of the highlights of his coaching career, stating “I’ve always enjoyed the challenge that comes with coaching and watching players come together as a team.  Coaching has given me the opportunity to help them deal with failure. Baseball is a game of failure, and you fail more than you succeed. I love the seeing the dedication of the players and seeing them learn many important life lessons.”
     
    In his 38 year career, Glassey amassed a total of 612 wins, putting him the top 5 in San Diego County History.  His teams won 9 CIF championships, and this season, he led the Lancers to the CIF Championship game for the 12th time in his coaching tenure.  Under his leadership, the Parker baseball program has seen numerous players have opportunities to play baseball at the collegiate level.  Four former Lancers are currently playing professionally. Nick Noonan ’07 and Jose Vizcaino Jr ’12 are both currently playing for the San Francisco Giants Organization.  Kyle Dowdy ’15 is currently in AAA with the Detroit Tigers, and Nick Allen ‘17 was selected by the Oakland A’s in the third round of last year’s amateur draft.
     
     
     
     
    “It’s been fun to see the successes of my players,” Glassey stated, “not only in baseball, but off the field as well in their lives and careers.  I hope that in some way, I have influenced their success.”

    After reaching the CIF Finals for the 2nd consecutive season, the Parker baseball team fell just short in their quest for a championship, losing 5-3 to Mission Hills High School on Saturday afternoon.
     
    After falling behind 1-0 in the first inning, the Lancers rallied in the top of the third.  Junior Ryan Sanborn, who started the game on the mound for the Lancers, drove in two runs with a single to right field, as Sterling Hayes and Michael Yourg each crossed the plate.  Mission Hills would go on to push 3 more runs across in the bottom of the frame to take a 4-2 lead.
     
     
    The Lancers came to the plate in the top half of the 7th inning trailing 5-2, but true to form, they competed fiercely till the end, nearly pulling off a miraculous comeback.  After being hit by a pitch for the 2nd time in the game, Sterling Hayes reached base, along with fellow senior Ben Krongard who drew a walk. Sophomore Jack Allen was able to push across a run, as Hayes scored when Allen singled through the right side of the infield, bringing the score to 5-3.  After Tristan Neels reached base on an infield hit, the Lancers had the bases loaded with the go-ahead run standing at the plate. It was not until a deep flyout to right field that Mission Hills was able to secure the victory.
     
    After the game, Parker baseball coach David Glassey announced his retirement as the head coach of the varsity program, telling the San Diego Union-Tribune "It's just time for a younger guy, someone with a little more energy to take over."  Glassey did say that he still plans to continue teaching at Parker, which includes working with the Parker middle school baseball program. "Whatever happens, I'll be involved with Baseball."
     
     
    Mission Hills Coach Ken Putnam, who also announced his retirement following the game, had extremely high praise for Coach Glassey.  "It was a privilege and an honor to compete against him and his team in a championship game," Putnam said. "He is a great coach, and a class man.  He coaches the right way, and his kids play incredibly hard for him. I can do nothing but tip my cap to David Glassey."
     
    In his 38 seasons leading the Parker baseball program, Coach Glassey amassed 601 wins (including 22 this season) and 9 San Diego Section championships.  This season marked the 12th time that his team reached the section finals.
     
    "I'm extremely proud of this team, especially our senior class," Glassey said.  "I absolutely love these kids and the way that they compete. They are great kids, who are fun to be around, but when the time comes, they are an extremely competitive group. I will miss them all next year."


    Parker Baseball Headed to CIF Championship for the 2nd Consecutive Year
    For the second straight season, the Parker Baseball team has earned their way into the CIF Section Championship game, coming off a 2-1 semifinal victory over Ramona high school on Tuesday afternoon. The win was the 3rd in a row for the Lancers, who emerged from their half of the Division 2 playoff bracket undefeated with an opening round win over Sage Creek High School, and then back to back 1 run victories over Ramona.
     
    In Tuesday's win, Senior pitcher Sterling Hayes threw 6 strong innings, improving his overall record on the season to 7-2, and lowering his season ERA to an outstanding 0.88. After giving up a run in the first inning, Hayes only allowed the Bulldogs 4 hits the rest of the way, while also striking out 7 batters. "I just executed my pitches better," Hayes said after the game. "The first batter I faced I threw a good pitch and the hitter had a great at bat. I missed my spots and walked the second batter, but after that inning I honed in on Michael Campagna, who called a great game, and executed my pitches just as I wanted to."
     
     
    Hayes was also effective at the plate, smashing a solo home run over the left field fence to tie the game in the third inning. "It was my second at-bat, and the pitcher hadn't thrown me a fastball yet in the game, so I sat on fastball and took advantage.
     
    Not to be outdone, fellow senior Michael Yourg also homered, putting the Lancers in front for good 2-1. Despite falling behind in the count initially, Yourg remained confident, stating "He was mixing up his pitches on me, but I was able to work the count back to 3-2. Once I got to that point, I knew he was gonna challenge me with the fastball so I just loaded up on that." The blast was Yourg's 8th home run of the season, placing him among the county leaders. It was also the 3rd consecutive game that he has sent one over the fence.
     
     
    Head Coach David Glassey has been extremely proud of his senior class all year long. "I absolutely love the way those kids compete," Glassey said. "They are great kids who are fun to be around, but when the time comes, they are extremely competitive group, which has been a big reason for our success."
     
    Hayes echoed his coaches' feelings, saying "This playoff season has been the greatest of my high school career. We are so focused as a team and everyone on the team is selfless in their team oriented efforts."
     
    Tomorrow's championship game against Mission Hills High School will be the second in a row that the Lancers have played in, which has the team feeling confident and excited. "We know exactly what to expect with USD's field," said Yourg. "We've played on the big stage before, and I think we're ready to finish it off."
     
    First pitch on Saturday is scheduled for 1pm at University Of San Diego's Fowler Park.

Parker's sailors had a strong start on Saturday, leading the regatta early on; as teams figured out the course, competition got more intense, returning national champs Point Loma settled into a groove, and Parker engaged in a tough battle with other top teams, managing to hold second place and earn the school's best ever result at a national regatta.

After the team's success last year and large numbers at the beginning of the season, Parker was moved into the Open division where they competed against Point Loma, La Jolla, University City, Cathedral, and Coronado high schools.
    The team was able to overcome adversity and fight through injuries, conflicting schedules, and an ever-changing roster. With the short time these girls had to learn the sport and develop skills, they did an amazing job and made vast improvements in their game.

    Senior Hannah Blood moved up from the #2 Team to the #1 Team after the first match of the year and stepped up to the challenge to partner with senior Bea Thomas to beat some very good #1 teams. Freshman Ashley Scott and Georgia Pasha (#5 Team) fought through a three game set and were able to finish the season with a win (2-1) and their first sand volleyball victory against San Marcos on Tuesday.
