CJ Reveals Renovations to Gymnasium

Chaminade Julienne officially pulled back the curtain on its gymnasium renovation December 10 with a dedication ceremony before the men's varsity basketball game against Roger Bacon High School.

“Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous benefactor, we have been able to outfit the gymnasium with state-of-the-art technology and an updated look-and-feel,” said Daniel J. Meixner, CJ president. “This vibrant multi-purpose space is now better equipped to accommodate our indoor athletic contests, community events, physical education classes and other daily activities.”

Eagles Coxswain Signs with Canisius

Grace Horner became the first CJ student-athlete of the 2013-14 school year to sign a National Letter of Intent after agreeing to join the Golden Griffins of Canisius College during the early signing period on Nov. 20.

The coxswain intends to study anthropology at the private Jesuit institution located in western New York, where she will receive partial academic and athletic grants. The school’s NCAA Division I women’s rowing program competes in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC).

2013 Fall Sports Season in Review

Reveled athletic tradition has always been a fulcrum for the Chaminade Julienne community and this 2013-14 fall season has been no different.

Successes were punctuated with state appearances by the women's golf team and individuals from our women's tennis and women's cross country teams. Their accomplishments continued a streak of 10 consecutive seasons with at least one “Walk to State” celebration dating back to the fall of 2010 according to Scott Pierce, athletic director.

Teammates Take Time Out to Volunteer

Twelve members of the CJ softball team spent a morning with the Moraine Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.) patched up, in casts and incapacitated.

Fortunately -- for the sake of the students’ health and the team’s spring season outlook -- all ailments were staged as part of a mock disaster training drill.

“The girls are made up to look like they have various injuries that challenge the C.E.R.T. team during their final exam,” said head coach Dee Werbrich, who works for the Moraine Fire Division when not coaching at CJ.

Senior Runner Represents CJ at State

Congratulations to senior Rachel Craighead who qualified for the Division II state championship meet this season. She finished 42nd among a field of 139 runners on Nov. 2 at National Trail Raceway course.

"Rachel, a relatively new runner, has accomplished in two years what many runners will not accomplish in a lifetime," said head coach Maura Lemon. Since joining the team last year she shaved off more than five minutes from her personal best, becoming the program's top runner.

Eagles Tennis Player Flying Solo at State

Congratulations to sophomore Natalie Allen who represented the Eagles in the Division II state tennis tournament for the second consecutive year this weekend.

Natalie returned to Columbus on Oct. 18, this time flying solo, just one year after placing third in the state doubles tournament with teammate Brooke Sandridge ‘13. She finished the regular season with a stellar 20-3 overall record (4-0 GCL), and ended her tournament run at Ohio State on a hard-fought loss (6-4, 2-6, 4-6) in the opening round.
