The Kindergarten-Second Grade Islander Youth Lacrosse Teams consisting of 29 players equally divided into two teams, played strong programs from all over San Diego County including La Jolla, Rancho Bernardo, Poway, Alpine, East County, Point Loma & South Bay. Combined on the season, the equally-divided teams had a record of 24-1. The one loss by the program was avenged twice vs. Rancho Bernardo and as such, the group claimed the bragging rights as the No. 1 team in San Diego County. Coaches for the K-2 Team included: Alex Cade, Andy Worth, Andrew Bell (Coronado CHS ’19), Joe Walsh (Coronado CHS’19), and Connor Worth (Coronado CHS ’20).

The K-2nd roster includes: Luke Baker, Mason Belong, Lincoln Blauert, Benjamin Burgess Walker, Xander Cade, C.J. Caturay, Ollie Cobb, Oliver Farrier, Konrad Fortmann, Brody Gossage, John Halttunen, Tommy Herrick, Parker Hyde, Luke Perry, Nathan Perry, Jonathan Pettit, Liam Powers, Max Ritter, Teddy Schlomer, Troy Schutt, Felix Scott, Brodie Shapiro, Lucas Urquidi, Matias Urquidi, Odin Urtnowski, Will Weber, and Gavin Worth.

The third-fourth grade Islanders Team had a great season with a 9-1 record. The team was led by coaches Lenny Perry, Kyle Runyon, Reis Stanley and George Farley (CHS ’19). The team qualified for the San Diego County Playoffs as the No. 2 seed. The playoffs started strong with wins against La Jolla and Carmel Valley, but the Islanders lost in the Finals by a narrow margin to Rancho Santa Fe 10-7. 

The team roster includes Timmy Allen, Mateo Alpert, Luca Amoia, Sean Bryant, Gus Walker, Jameson Fabiszak, Maverick Garcia, Jeronimo Gomez-Ibarra, Sam Harvey, Van Marinics, Finley Maske, Brendan McLaughlin, James Merwin, James Nevitt, Finbarr O’Halloran, Jack Perry, Bennett Perry, Caden Ramey, Owen Smiley, Griffin Steiner, and Finn Wahamaki.

The fifth-sixth Grade ‘A’ team won the San Diego County Championship, besting the Carmel Valley Falcons (Torrey Pines) in the championship contest. They were led by coaches David Keiffer, Vince Reynolds, Rory Moore and Rob Steiner. The players are: Gavin Dyet Jaren Capin, Derick Ritter, Maximus Kieffer, James Steiner, Jonah York, Landon Sutherland, Nathan Harden, Colin Thoms, Ethan Reynolds, Robbie Spane, Hondo Garcia, Ben Merrill, Beckham Arias, and Colby Wood. Coronado was the only program to enter two teams in the ‘A’ division.

The players include:  Callum Arnaudy, Owen Arnaudy, Mason Gossage, Dom Alfieri, Gavin Levitt, Winston Ferris, Jack Marovish, Leo Ursitti, Ryan Chalepas, David Ward, Austin Iverson, Barron Capin, Elvis Brietenbach, Benji Neil, Brayden Avallone, Aidan McKerring, Noah Bravo, Ryder Moore and Liam Knapp.

The seventh-eighth Grade Youth Boys Lacrosse Team was led by coaches Jacob Vita, Ben Harden, and Jim Laing. They finished the regular season with a record of 8-2 and made the Playoffs in the top division in the County as the No. 8 seed. With 50 programs in the County in this division, their No. 8 seed is the equivalent to qualifying for the CIF High School Open Division, which features eight teams.
