Back-to-Back for Eagles Indoor Track

For the second consecutive season, the Eagles women’s track team took home the Division II/III indoor track state championship at the Ohio Association of Track and Cross Country Coaches (OATCCC) meet March 17.

The CJ quintet of Cierra Brown ‘12, Alexandria Coleman ‘12, Camille Dickens ’12, Tia Jones ’13, and Devanae Mitchell ’13 combined to run away from the field with 64 points—18 better than the second place team. The girls followed up strong individual performances with the fastest foursome in the 800 meter relay to finish in first place amongst the 68-team field.

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.
