The

Crossroads School boys team finished 15th at the CIF cross

country state championships, which took place in Fresno. Freshman sensation Ethan

Finkel delivered as he has done all season, coming in third in his

division. 

Coach

David Olds was excited with the way his team performed considering that this

year is what he considers to be a “building year” with young athletes joining

the team and many seniors graduating off of the team from last year. 

Girls’

cross country star Sonaali Pandiri ran in the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving along

with Olds. Pandiri won in the female division. Olds took first place for

the males.

Both

the boys and girls varsity basketball teams have undergone coaching

changes. Anthony Locke, who worked previously as the varsity assistant coach

for the boys team, is now in charge of spearheading the girls’ basketball team.

Daryl Roper now leads the boys basketball team.

Roper

had previously took on the program when Baron Davis and Austin Croshere played at

the school. Before he left the program in 2006 after a long run, Roper had a

very successful run as head coach, guiding Crossroads to CIF and state titles.
