The Islander Boys Volleyball Team, under the direction of Head Coach George Cavaco, went 22-15 this season. Their First Round opponent in the Division II Playoffs was No. 10 seed Helix and the No. 7 seeded Islanders lost a closely contested match 18-25, 30-28, 23-25, 25-18 and 15-9 to conclude their season… The Islander Boys Tennis Team, coached by Mackenzie White, drew Francis Parker in the First Round of the Division I Team Finals. Coronado’s starting lineup of No. 1 singles Jorge Yanez, No. 2 Isaac Del Rincon, No. 3 singles Tye Murree and the doubles lineup of No. 1 Jake Lamb/Andres de la Lama; No. 2 Santi Gonzalez/Ryan Wood and No. 3 doubles Mauricio Rivero/Nathaniel Nelson fought their way to a 9-9 victory, which was decided by the tiebreaker of total number of games won, with Coronado prevailing 81-73. The next day Coronado lost to No. 2 seed and eventual Division I Champion Rancho Bernardo by the score of 13-5. This week the Islanders are competing in the Western League Championships, which serves as a qualifier for the CIF Singles and Doubles Championships that will be held next week… Last week the Islander Boys Golf Team competed in the City Conference Tournament, with Eduardo Maynez, Jake McLaughlin, Easton Phillips, Javier Hernandez, Matt Schnappauf, and Gino Frederick, participating in the stroke play portion of the event. McLaughlin and Phillips qualified and advanced to the Match Play portion of the event, with McLaughlin losing his match on the 19th hole and Phillips losing his match 6-and-5. The team, coached by Stuart Gordon, will compete in the Division III Team Play-in event Wednesday against Francis Parker, at the Coronado Municipal Golf Course. The winning team advances to the CIF Finals. According to Gordon, Phillips, McLaughlin and Hernandez have all qualified for the CIF Finals, regardless of the team outcome, with their season stroke average. Gordon said, “We have beaten Francis Parker twice this season and provided we play evenly and if we putt well, we should beat them again. If we concentrate, we should win.” The CIF event will be held next Monday and Tuesday at the Admiral Baker Golf Course.
