SI Football 2013: The Cats are Back!

Over the summer break, the SI football Cats have been hard at work, putting in the extra effort for the upcoming season. With a 9-4 overall team record in the 2012 campaign, varsity football looks to duplicate their success in both the regular season and the playoffs. Last year, the team defeated cross-town rival Sacred Heart in the annual Bruce-Mahoney football game with a decisive final score of 35-21. The Cats finished a memorable season, capturing the CCS Division I title as they stunned Bellarmine College Prep in a 13-10 win before falling to Granite Bay in a regional bowl game.

The varsity squad is eager to start with a non-league matchup against Marin Catholic on September 7th at SI. Returning varsity player Cristian Zaragoza ’14 said, “We will be looking to start our season strong and will continue to work hard up to and through that day.” The momentum and focus that the SI football team hopes to bring into this season is demonstrated by many of the returning starters, including Elijah Dale ’14, Joe Lang ’14, and Nick Bell ’14. Brent Arimoto ’14 noted, “Our guys are in good shape and have improved our endurance on the field.” On the upcoming season, Brian Vollert ’15  remarked, “With the last year’s CCS championship victory, the bar is set really high…We had a good summer and grew closer together as a team.”
