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.
