Coronado Chamber Of Commerce Salute To The Military Ball Scheduled For April 18, 2020

The Coronado Chamber of Commerce’s 36th Salute to the Military Ball will be held Saturday, April 18, 2020. The theme of this year’s Ball, event which affords the citizens of Coronado the opportunity to celebrate the military, is ‘The Young & The Brave-Applauding Our Military Kids.’ The event will again be held in the Hotel Del Coronado’s Crown Room. The title sponsor of the Military Ball is Hilton Worldwide, with the Hotel Del Coronado also serving as a sponsor.Serving for the fifth year as either Chairman or Co-Chairman of the Military Ball is Mike Woiwode, who discussed the recent history of the black-tie event. “We honored Vietnam Veterans two years ago and that resonated with the community. I would say we have gotten better connected with the community each of the last two years, with more community members attending. Some came due to their Veteran status and some came as sponsors. We like that trend and hope we can do more of that. Coronado is honoring the military and the more local participation we have, the better. We are anticipating hosting 100 military couples and in addition, we are hoping to host the spouses of some deployed military. One of our sponsors, Bob and Gail Barden, sponsored a table for themselves, one table for the Coronado Island Film Festival and one table for the spouses of the deployed. And they are doing that again this year. That helps us out a lot.”

Coronado Boys Soccer Team Pushes Record To 5-1-2
Updated: January 20, 2020 - 1:13 pm

The Boys Soccer Team, won twice to improve their record to 5-1-2. If the CIF San Diego Section Playoffs started this week, their first opponent from last week, Canyon Crest Academy, would likely be competing in the Open Division. The Islanders won that game at home 1-0.

Islander Head Coach Aaron Brooks described the action. “We scored a goal in the first half on a free kick by Corey Bible. That was a very good game because Canyon Crest was very aggressive and in good shape. It was very competitive, and we had to match their intensity. Our team did a very good job bending, but not breaking on defense. Also, we finished with 10 players on the field and I was proud of the Boys and their effort. To hold a one-goal second-half lead, against a good team, shows good progression and growth by our team. We started the game with Jack Irvine in goal and in the second half

Coronado Girls Soccer Splits Two Games Last Week, Record Stands At 6-5
Updated: January 20, 2020 - 1:12 pm

The Islander Girls Soccer Team, under the direction of Head Coach Mike Costaglio, played twice and the results included a 3-0 loss at home to Point Loma and a 3-0 home victory over Mira Mesa. The latter contest was the first City League game of the season for the Islanders. As a reminder, the six-team City League includes Clairemont, Coronado, Hoover, High Tech High San Diego, Mira Mesa and University City.

“Point Loma is always good,” Costaglio said. “This year they dropped out of Division I and they are one of the top teams in Division II. (Coronado competes in CIF Division III.) We didn’t adopt to their style of play very well. They play a very direct game, with pace and they play right down the middle of the field. Our center backs were a little overwhelmed. I knew it would be a tough game. No matter what we did, we couldn’t adjust. Sometimes the matchups just aren’t good. I wanted to add some Division I and Division II games to our schedule and we’ve stepped up to play some significant programs this year. We just licked our wounds after the Point Loma game and regrouped. We had a chat after the game that we need to prepare better, adjust and recognize what we are facing. It was a learning experience and we’ll build off that.”
