Spring Sports Start Up
By Nick Biondo '19
Spring sports are underway here at Chaminade. Some of the sports offered in the spring are baseball, lacrosse, spring crew, golf, tennis, spring track and volleyball. Obviously lacrosse is the most popular spring sport, but nearly everyone at Chaminade is doing something during the springtime, whether playing an actual sport to being involved in a club. Here is an outline of some sports and a breakdown of their respective records.
Lacrosse: The Varsity Lacrosse is among one of the top teams in the nation headed by a number of players committed to playing lacrosse in college. Some schools include Duke, Cornell, Navy, Virginia, Notre Dame, Johns Hopkins, Harvard, and a number of other top universities. The JV lacrosse team is off to a 2-0 start with victories over Iona prep and Kellenberg and many others soon to come. The Freshman lacrosse team is off to an 2-0-1 start with a win over Kellenberg an overtime loss against Delbarton and a win over Saint Anthony's.
Baseball: The Varsity and JV baseball teams have not had an official game yet, but will soon have their season openers against St. Doms starting on Tuesday (April 4th). The Varsity team had a number of scrimmages and are looking to make their final touches to their starting roster. Both teams are looking strong and should have championship hope seasons. The Freshman baseball team started 2-0 in league play with both wins coming against Holy Trinity. They are looking hopeful to follow the now JV team in winning a CHSAA baseball championship.
Spring crew: Many of the crew members were training during the winter to be ready for the upcoming season in the spring. All three teams are looking to go to states and nationals where they will face some of the top teams across the country later on this season.
Spring track: Headed by Mr. Beirne and Mr. Hayes, the spring track team looks forward to a big season. Some members of the team express their opinion on the upcoming season. Steven Santel '19, says, “I am very excited for the season.” Tommy Moran ‘19 says, "I'm ready for the upcoming season and I'm looking forward to having a super fun time."
Volleyball, golf, and tennis: All three of these sports have been prepared for the season and are all looking for quality seasons especially Varsity Volleyball, Varsity Golf, and Varsity A Tennis.
