The defending Division II state champs made the traditional "Walk to State" through the halls of CJ Thursday morning, led by the Eagle Pep Band and cheered on by classmates, faculty and staff. The team finished the season as the 2012 state runners-up on Saturday, Oct. 13.
Eagle runners ran into familiar faces at the Mel Brodt High School Invitational hosted September 1 on the campus of Bowling Green State University.
After winding through and around BGSU’s intramural fields, golf course, and football stadium during the race, CJ men’s and women’s teams caught up with recent alumna Nicolette Johnson ’11 (pictured above). The former Eagle, now a Falcon, is currently a thrower for the school’s NCAA Division I track and field team.
For the fourth consecutive year, the Girls' Greater Cincinnati League track trophy will make its home in one of the glass cases lining the hallways of Chaminade Julienne High School. This summer, some Eagles among the class of 2012 (who have been partly responsible for returning the prize to CJ each year since 2009) had the pleasure of marking its base once again with a new placard bearing the name of their alma mater.
Chaminade Julienne men’s and women’s soccer players once again teamed up with Therapy Connections, LLC this summer to host a special kids’ camp for children with disabilities.
On June 8, the Eagles welcomed their “Friday Friends” to the Student Conditioning Center and Blue Green Field for fun lessons in the fundamentals of the game. Players then shared a picnic dinner with campers to cap the evening.
Senior Cierra Brown hurdled her way to some new gold hardware at the Division II state track championship meet June 2, taking home two individual titles from Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium at Ohio State University.
