Female Athletes Break for Breakfast

Math teacher Ann Meyers ’76 understands that, even in the down period between seasons, it has never been easy for student-athletes to make time for a break.

Just like the roughly 150 two-and three-sport athletes competing on Eagles teams today, most of Meyers' free time in high school—and through college—was consumed playing softball, volleyball and basketball; the latter two as a Flyer at the University of Dayton.

Scott Pierce Named Next Eagles AD

Chaminade Julienne has hired Scott Pierce as the school’s athletic director effective March 7. He served as the school’s interim director since July 27.

“Scott is a great fit for us. Since leading the responsibilities of the athletic office last summer, he has demonstrated a tremendous passion and desire to move CJ athletics to the next level,” said John Marshall, principal. “His knowledge of the school, our mission and our community, along with his desire to serve the greater community, will continue to benefit coaches, teams and players in a great way.

Herd Signs to Play Soccer at Findlay

Just two seasons removed from her first organized soccer game ever, senior Schaudon Herd signed a National Letter of Intent February 7 to attend Findlay University and play goalkeeper for the Oilers.

Herd began playing the game after her sophomore year at CJ when friend and Eagles basketball teammate Lynsay Strahorn ’11 (currently a midfielder at Cleveland State) suggested she try out for the team. The rest, as they say, is history.

“Lynsay told me, ‘You’re quick, you’re athletic. You should just try it out,’” Herd said. “Never once had I thought about playing soccer.”

Eagle Bowlers on a Roll

Following a season spent solely practicing together after school, the members of the men’s and women’s bowling team are back on the lanes and competing once again in 2012.

The Eagles have settled back into the GCL and GGCL, finding their groove down the stretch this year. The men’s team wrapped up the regular season in second place behind only Carroll in the North division, while the women’s team finished third in the Grey North ahead of Fenwick.

Five Make it Official on Signing Day

Eagle student-athletes Cierra Brown, Nick Flannery, Marco Gresham, Sean Miller and Darian Reynolds signed National Letters of Intent Wednesday afternoon on the first day for high school seniors to do so.

Brown will run track at Purdue University; Flannery, Gresham and Reynolds will play football at the College of Wooster, Notre Dame College and Ashland University respectively; and Sean Miller will play soccer at Tiffin University.

Defense and Discipline Defining Eagles

With just four regular season contests remaining, the men’s varsity basketball team will look to increase its lead in the GCL North on the road against league rival Carroll Friday night.

Support the feature team of the week during the 7:30 p.m. matchup at Carroll High School (directions). The freshmen team will play at 4:30 p.m., followed by the JV at 6 p.m. A limited number of pre-sale tickets are on sale in the athletic office for $6 (adults) and $4 (students), with all tickets being $6 at the door.

CJ Wrestlers Focused as Feature Team

Eagle grapplers got off to a great start as the feature team of the week Monday, Jan. 23, trouncing opponents National Trail and Fairborn in a Senior Night tri-meet.

Looking ahead, the team hopes to keep its momentum high entering the Eaton Invitational this weekend and through next month’s end-of-season tournaments. Divisional duals begin February 4, with the league and sectional tournaments held during the weekends that follow.

Popularity of Eagle Swim Team Soaring

Since fall 2010 when the Feature Team initiative was first introduced, members of the Spirit Committee have been highlighting CJ sports teams throughout all three athletic seasons, and their efforts to build school-wide support for Eagle student-athletes officially resumed during the week of January 17-21.

The committee has had its hands full hanging locker signs and organizing lunch-time appreciations for members of the men’s and women’s swim team this week due to the growing number of Eagle swimmers in 2012. Participants have increased by 30 percent since last season.

Softball Team Spreads Christmas Cheer

Members of the CJ softball team spent Saturday, Dec. 3 serving youngsters of all ages at the Pancakes with Prancer community event hosted by the City of Moraine.

Eagle volunteers were in charge of leading arts and crafts activities during the event, which is aimed at raising money for the city’s Christmas Smiles Program. The program provides food and gifts for needy families from Moraine.

Dee Bowling, head coach, said the girls had a great time interacting with the children and taking a team photo with Santa and his reindeer, Prancer.
