The preseason ended with about an equal number of wins and losses. January in league went fairly well, but then dropped off some. At the end there was some improvement and the team made the CCS playoffs and lost a close game to Harbor. The team gained a lot of confidence and experience and with good players on the JV team, the Cards should be much improved next season.

JV BOYS BASKETBALL
Yearbook. With many freshman on the team facing other teams with many sophomores, the Cards lost the chance to win the championship, losing to a very good Aptos team. For a squad so young, second place was a very good record. Many of these freshmen will move to the varsity next season and will be in contention for a lot of playing time. Some will be returning to the JV team and will work to continue this teams good record. We all agree that we couldn’t have had this great record without our coach, Jerry Fusari.
Team Roster: Ti DeMeo, Walker Hansen, Jamie Saint John, Johann Schmidt, Clayton Conroy, Mike Adams, Michael Gangloff, Dominic Bonner, Forrest Brown, Chris Martin, Derick Delucchi, Joseph Marden and John Wylie. Coach Jerry Fusari
Yearbook. “It isn’t the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” Case in point: The team played against bigger teams almost every game. We lost only one game and it was by one point in the last second. In the Aptos game, we were down 20-4 in the first quarter, but fought back to win! SC didn’t back down and instead played a fast, fun style of hoops under coach Bill Domhoff. Behind team MVP Jonah Hodges, Beto Olmedo, Etai Levy-Richards, Yabi Abraham and the most improved player Drew Boisen, SC crushed league competition and took the title with a 11-1 record. Overall it was a great season and everyone is looking forward to coming back next year.

Yearbook. Pride: Players Respect, Intense Defense Every time.
The team has taken on every challenge and has learned to work as a true basketball team. We have an exceptionally deep bench, which not only makes subbing easier, but also creates an even bigger extended family. Everyone has worked extremely hard and it has helped make this a tightly knit team. We not only are together at practice, but spend most every weekend with each other.

Yearbook. SC soccer has been known for its good soccer teams with many titles. This year with seven seniors, new and returning players, the Cards were the first SC team in at least ten years to finish the league season undefeated. But none of this would have happened without the help of four freshmen, who all displayed great talent and lot of potential for the future. The freshmen showed everyone that they deserved to be on the varsity by demonstrating a great amount of heart in the game. The Cards have worked hard with drills, sprinting, dribbling and passing, never forgetting their Cardinal spirit. Each player always put forth his best effort and the team gave their all each game all season long.
In the first round of the CCS playoffs, the Cards lost to Pioneer after four overtimes in penalty kicks after leading 1-0 with only seconds left in regular time.

JV BOYS SOCCER LEAGUE CHAMPIONS
Yearbook. The team called themselves “TD” which means Team Domination! We would obliterate the competition with our beautiful planned plays from out coach Scott Anderson and assistants Lalo Gonzales and Adolfo Gonzales. Even our second team would win games. We tied the varsity in a practice game and they went on to win league, so we thought that made us pretty good. Half way through the season, we lost our most important game, but somehow we managed to win league anyway, because we’re “TD”.

The team finished the season with 16-4-4 overall record, while winning the SCCAL crown for the third straight year, plus winning the Tartan Tournament of Shootout Championship in San Juan Capistrano defeating hosts St. Margaret’s 4-3 in Pks (penalty kicks) after tying the score 1-1 in overtime and making the finals of CCS playoffs. SC lost to Sacred Heart Prep 2-1. This success continues the Cardinal Soccer Legacy; the girls made it to the CCS finals six out of the last nine years and won the CCS Championship in 2000, 2002, 2003 and 2007.
This years success was an amazing accomplishment given that two key senior starters, team co-captains Kelsey Johnson and Keiko Kurita, who were sidelined with knee injuries. SCCAL Player of the Year Lauren Miller said after the CCS Championship loss, “It would have been a different world with Kelsey and Keiko, but the whole team stepped it up for the finals.”

I have been lucky over the last four years, being able to watch both Zeke Sanders and Brennan Lynch compete and grow into great young men. I hate to see them go,” coach Anthony Brown. “After not coaching for 15 years and before that having been the head track coach at SC, it’s a real pleasure to be back working with these great kids,”

CIF STATE TRACK AND FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS
Friday June 6 preliminaries to qualify for the finals on Saturday. ‘I’m Ninth In The State of California, That’s Not Too Shabby, Especially In The 100.’ Zeke Sanders, SC Sprinter.
FAST START FOR SANDERS
Senior Sprinter Becomes First SC High Runner To Reach Finals In More Than Four Decades.
The starting gun fired twice, signifying a false start in Heat 2 of the boys 200 meter dash trial at the California State Track and Field championships at Buchanan High in Fresno. The judge pointed to Lane 2, where SC senior Zeke Sanders was seeded. Sanders hit his head in frustration, but quickly shrugged off the disqualification. He’s already done enough for one day. Earlier, Sanders turned in the ninth fastest time in the 100 trials, becoming the first SC track athlete to reach the state finals in at least four decades, according to longtime coach and unofficial team historian Don Roberts.
Though six Santa Cruz County athletes qualified for state, Sanders has only one of the left and the other runner is in a race that has no qualifying trials. Everyone runs in the finals in the 3,200 distance race.
Sanders has gotten good at dealing with false starts. In the CCS 100 trials, he won his heat after the runner next to him left too early. In the state trials, his heat also got called back on a false start call. But Judges determined more than half the heat, including Sanders had left early and let the entire field restart. On the second try, Sanders finished fourth in 10.68. That smothered his previous personal best of 10.90, set while taking second at the CCS finals and even beat his goal time of 10.75.
In addition, it earned him the final qualifying spot into the finals, making him the first Cardinal runner to get that far since at least 1968, according to Roberts, who has been coaching at SC since 1979. “A top six finish is a realistic goal,” said father and coach Bob Sanders. “Its gong to be hard, “ Sanders agreed, “I’m going to have to push it to the max.”
SC’s Sanders Finishes Ninth. Zeke Sanders felt the eyes of 9,517 anxious spectators peer down on him as he settled into the starting blocks for the 100 meter dash, the premier event at the California Track and Field championships at Buchanan high in Fresno. To the right of the SC sprinter were eight of the fleetest boys in the state. One of them held the fastest time in the nation.
Behind Sanders was history. It has been 80 years since a SC athlete had placed at the California meet and an estimated 40 years since one had made the State finals. And ahead of Sanders was the finish line and the rest of his life.
Sanders reached it in 10.86 seconds to take ninth in the final event of his prolific high school career behind the nations top 100 runner, who did 10.38. Sanders didn’t make any more history than he had Friday night, when he ran a personal best 10.68 to qualify for the last spot in the 100 final, but he was content all the same. “I’m one of the nine fastest guys in the state, that’s a pretty good goal,” Sanders said, “It feels good to be done, but all the fun meets come at the end. I’ve been so blessed by God with my high school athletic career. There’s a lot of stuff I could do that people would die for.”
Sanders has made two state championships in the 100, finding eighth in his heat last year in 11.05. He also won three straight SCCAL league titles and two 200 titles. That’s just in track. He shined in football and is headed to Oregon State on scholarship.
Sanders said he was going after the SC record of 10.64 in the 100, just .04 second faster than his preliminary time. It would have been sweet to nab it since his father and coach, Bob Sanders, still holds the school record in the 110 high hurdles.
The elder Sanders said he didn’t care if his son set the record. He didn’t even mention to Zeke that he could have become the first Cardinal to place at state since Larry McLean placed fifth in both the 120 and 220 yard hurdle in 1938. He just wanted to see him run. “I’m really happy to be able to watch his last event in high school,” Bob Sanders said. “I’m happy for him to do so well at the state meet. He brought his ‘A’ game to an ‘A’ meet.
Notes: SC sprints and hurdles coach Don Roberts called the state meet, “one of the top junior track meets in the world.” Several athletes proved him right Saturday.

Yearbook. A deep team gives Cards a competitive edge. Thanks to three important ingredients, the Cards had a great season: a terrific new coach Julian Sunn, returning veteran players and a fresh infusion of new talent. Coach Sunn is a player for the nationally ranked UCSC Slugs. Sunn provided team members with great technical advice, as well as critical strategy during matches. He was fortunate to have returning team standouts, including number one singles player Chris Kaye, Tony Yang and team twins Sam and Jacob Imsland to provide leadership to the unusually large team of 18 players. In addition, the Cards were fortunate to gain several new players that brought years of experience to the team, including Justus Walls, Walker Hansen and Jesse Honig. At press time, halfway through the season, these combined forces have led the Cards to second place in the SCCAL. The only loss has been to tennis powerhouse Aptos.
