The Coronado Unified School District (CUSD) Trustees reconvened on June 23, where they adopted the 2022-2023 school year budget, and voted to approve a series of training sessions for teachers and counselors to better support LGBTQ+ students in the district.

This past Wednesday, the Coronado Islanders Baseball team hosted their team banquet for the 2022 season.

While the season did not end in a CIF Championship as they hoped, the Islanders still put together a successful year that saw them make their fourth straight appearance in the CIF Division Two Playoffs and knock off four Division One opponents during the regular season.

Due to another successful regular season and League season, several Islanders from the 2022 squad would earn First or Second-Team All-Eastern League Honors.

The two Islanders who would earn Second-Team honors would be then freshman Patch Moore and then sophomore Max Murray.

In his first season in the Islander green and white Patch Moore was a crucial part of the Islander’s success in 2022. Making the Varsity team as a freshman, Moore was a top-of-the-lineup hitter who showed great promise and development at the plate. more >>
