The Crossroads athletics department is doing some big things. At least in fall sports they are. While football is all the rage and getting the bulk of the attention at the moment in high school sports, other athletic programs are going on strong as well.
Crossroads High School can attest to that. Crossroads’ took first place and captured league titles in all of its fall sports that it participated in. That would include girls volleyball, girls cross country and boys cross country. Both the boys and girls cross country teams won the Delphic League championships.
After defeating Bolsa Grande 10-8 in their first round CIF match and rolling past Ontario Christian, the Crossroads tennis team fell to Cerritos, 12-6, in the CIF quarterfinals.
The school’s cross country teams head into the CIF meet this Saturday. The girls’ cross country team is led by Sonaali Pandiri and Maisie Lynton. On the flip side, Crossroads boys’ cross country team has been paced all season by Ethan Finkel.
The school’s volleyball team is also doing quite well, smashing Gladstone on Tuesday in a CIF playoff matchup. Hosting their first playoff game, Crossroads defeated Gladstone in three sets. The Roadrunners beat Gladstone 25-19, 25-22 and 25-19 to move on to the next round.
