2016 Fall Sports Season In Review

The 2016 fall sports season was one to remember with CJ's teams making it to the post-season, individual players and teams winning awards, and the grand opening of Roger Glass Stadium - Home of the Chaminade Julienne Eagles.

Football
Record: 6-4
The Eagles had a solid football season, tripling their wins from just one year before (2-8 in 2015). Leading the way was Darian Jones with 11 touchdowns. Quarterback Ryan Peltier threw for over 1,000 yards and running back Jacquel Freeman-Parks led the Eagles with just under 900 yards rushing. Defensively, CJ was led by junior linebackers Isaiah Haywood, Rocky Stark and Mike Poteet. The defense improved to be the third best in the GCL.

"This was a great improvement from the year before when the defense ranked 8th overall," head coach Marcus Colvin noted.

During the course of the season, the Eagles won 5 games in a row by an average of 22 points per game. The Eagles also finished the year winning 4 of 5 games at Roger Glass Stadium.

"With 50 players returning next year, the 2017 CJ Eagle Football Team looks very promising," Colvin added.

Men's Soccer 
Record 11-7-1
Building off of the 2015 season, the Men's Soccer team ended their 2016 season losing in the District Semi-finals. The team was captained by Nick Barnes, Ian Saunders, and Cole Wagner.

The 2016 season was the first winning season for the team since 2007 and the most wins in a season since 2001. 11 wins is also the third most wins in a season since 1987. The team had notable wins over Bellbrook, McNicholas, Fenwick, Oakwood, and Miamisburg.
