Coast Union High School Athletic Updates

     Girls Volleyball.  Last Thursday the Junior Varsity (JV) and Varsity (V) teams hosted Shandon. JV won their game 2-0, while Varsity had a tough loss of 3-1.  The JV record now stands at 8-0, while the V record is 9-3 overall and 5-2 in league. The team is second in the league behind undefeated Coastal Christian.  On Friday, September 30, the varsity team will host Cuyama at 5:00 p.m.

     Cross Country.  Cross Country hosted Mission Prep on Wednesday, September 21.  Mission was unable to field a girls team, but our girls runners Ava Glennon and Alexa Bonilla ran their own race. Though they said it was not one of the best runs, it did provide additional practice time for them to run the course. The boys team was able to run a full team against Mission Prep and came out victorious. Mission Prep had the top runner, while Coast Union’s Diego Gomez, Adrianne Aviña, and Luke Smith continued to dominate coming in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. Other notable runners that played a part in the victory were Oliver Fabela (8th) and Martin Lopez (10th).  League meets begin in October with the first meet at Coast Union on Thursday, October 6, at 3:30 p.m.

     Football.  The team’s victory of 36-14 over Santa Clarita Christian on Saturday, September 17, improved their record to 2-1. The team had 190 yards rushing and 140 yards passing. Caiden Kennedy had two passing touchdowns, one to Alex De Alba (20 yards receiving) and the other to Jonathan Ramirez (88 yards receiving). Caiden also ran for 107 yards and three touchdowns. Another notable contribution on offense was Diego Fernandez with 67 yards rushing and 32 yards receiving. 

     Their defense was the key to success in the game shutting down Santa Clarita’s powerful pass offense. The team combined for 6 tackles for loss, and Adair Ponce and Manny Mercado each had a sack. The team picked off four interceptions with Caiden Kennedy responsible for three. Jonathan Ramirez got the fourth interception of the game in the endzone late in the 4th quarter as Santa Clarita was trying to make one last drive.  Another notable contributor on defense was Alex De Alba with 9 solo tackles and a forced fumble.
