We can’t believe it but the final push of the spring season is underway! Our boy's golf, boys tennis, girls, and boys lacrosse teams have already wrapped up their seasons while softball, baseball, and girls soccer are training hard for post-season results for their respective seasons.
Speaking of soccer, HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to our girl's varsity soccer team and coaches for winning the Bay Counties League (BCL-Central) championship! In an epic performance last Thursday the girls battled rival Drew in front of a large-spirited gathering at Kezar stadium, winning in decisive fashion 3-1. The girls finished the regular season with an overall record of 14-1-1. A number of players received all-league recognition. First-team all-league: Sydney Doyle, Esme Schulte, Graham Lenox, Claire Lau; Second team all-league: Katy Oda, Olivia Georgenton, Olivia Bergin; Honorable Mention: Sydney Philipp, Cameron Burns, Addicen Bauer, Abbey Chaitin, Eliza Zaroff. Last, but not least, congratulations to league MVP Kamryn You Mak!
With the league championship title, our girls have earned the #1 seed in the prestigious North Coast Section (NCS) championship tournament. This is the first time in Bay School history a Bay sports team has earned a #1 seed in NCS! Our girls will play the winner of International vs College Prep this Thursday, May 10th in the NCS soccer Semi-finals at 4:00 p.m. at Paul Goode Field. The winner will advance to the NCS championship scheduled for Tuesday, May 15th at Kezar (Time TBA). We hope to see you all there! Admission for NCS events are $10.00 for adults and $6.00 for seniors/students/children 11+.
Another team looking for a strong finish to their league season is our softball team. After earning a BIG win last week against University the softball team improved their record to 6-3 overall and 5-2 in the BCL. Coach Kaneja is extremely happy with the steady improvement our team has made. In fact, our Breaker softball team is looking towards a possible at-large berth the NCS tournament, which begins Tues, May 22.
Speaking of playoffs, the Breaker baseball team has secured a spot in the BCL-Central playoffs. At press time, the baseball team has an overall record of 11-6 and 8-4 in the league. Coach Robert Martinez knows that if our team plays to their potential that they can compete with anyone in the Central. This week will be a big test for our team, with games against SF Waldorf and International. Our team and coaches have their eye on the NCS playoffs as well, which begin May 22. The league semifinals will be played Wed, May 16th at Big Rec in Golden Gate Park (time and opponent TBA).
The girl's lacrosse team finished their season on April 26th. We are extremely proud of our team for always representing our school with class. Coach Alessandra Waste had the challenging task of leading our young team in its second year of league competition in the very competitive BCL West. Through it all, our girls stuck together, largely due to the senior captains Lauren Levine and Lauren Oberwager. We know that the foundation of a strong future girls lacrosse program is now in place.
Our boy's lacrosse team also enjoyed a solid season. The team had big wins vs. Stuart Hall, Archbishop Riordan, Washington and Newark Memorial. Congratulations to senior captain Mario Morris who received All-League Honorable Mention recognition. Coaches Griffin Costello and Cole Stevens and the team demonstrated strong commitment and improvement throughout their season and they look forward to next year.
The boy's tennis team missed qualifying for the BCL West Team Tournament by the narrowest of margins, finishing league play in a 3-way tie with Urban and Drew. The team had its best record in years and did have 3 players (John Finberg, Jamie Jue and Dara Amin) advance to the second round of the Individual/Doubles tournament. With no graduating seniors, the boy's tennis team has the potential for increased success next year. We are excited that Coach Emily DeCamilla will be returning to lead both the boys and girls varsity programs, along with teaching here at Bay.
The boy's volleyball team will not only be saying goodbye to graduating senior captain Owen Aguirre, but also longtime head coach Cecily Scherschligt, who announced her “retirement” from coaching at the end of the 2017-18 school year. During her tenure as boys head coach, she led the team to two BCL Championships and several trips to the NCS Tournament. This was a younger, less experienced team that made huge improvements throughout the season. Congratulations to Jackson Ronald (First Team), Owen Aguirre (Second Team) and Romeo Vides (Honorable Mention) for earning all-league recognition!
The boy's golf team concluded their regular season with back to back victories over Marin Academy, to finish in third place overall. At the league championship at Harding Park, both Sophomore Jimmy Farrell’s and Junior Jamie Corbus’ scores earned them a spot in the NCS Division II Championships. Congratulations to Jamie for earning second team all-league, along with posting an 85 at the NCS Tournament and to Jimmy for earning first team all-league and posting an impressive 77 yesterday at NCS. Another team that will NOT be graduating any seniors, Coach Dylan is extremely encouraged for next year!
Another Bay athlete deserving of acknowledgment is senior Parker Readerman. Parker has been competing as an individual in the BCL West Track & Field meets this season, in order to seek qualification for the NCS Meet of Champions in the 800m, 1600m, and 3200m. Coming off of an impressive performance in the Cross Country State Championships last November, Parker has set several personal records this spring in Track & Field. He will compete this Saturday, May 12 at the BCL League Championships.
Good Luck, Parker and Coach Paul Zager!
