The Chaminade Girls’ tennis team played in the CIF Southern Section Division 4 final, the team’s first finals appearance in 19 years (previous CIF titles in 1983, 1986 and 1997). The #4-ranked Eagles’ run through the playoffs included a win in the semifinals over undefeated #1-ranked Elsinore High School. This earned them a place in the finals against Thatcher School on Friday, November 11, at the Claremont Tennis Club. Although Chaminade was the runner-up, this young team—mostly freshmen and sophomores, led by a few veteran seniors and juniors—performed admirably. Coach Ron Frankel is proud of the team’s achievement and foresees similar success in the coming seasons.
Chaminade has three players continuing to the CIF Sectionals for individual singles and doubles championships. Sofia Lazzroni ’19 will play singles at Cate School in Carpenteria; Sofi DeBelles ’20 and Lauren Lombardi ’20 will play doubles at Carpenteria High School. First round matches are on Monday, November 21.

In addition to the victory, festivities included spirit activities and rallies for students at both campuses throughout the week. Theses events culminated in the crowning of a Homecoming King and Queen, Lawrence Hwang ’17 and Catherine Dauw ’17.
Homecoming was also Reunion Weekend for Chaminade alumni from the Classes of 1966, 1976, 1986, 1991, and 1996 (the Classes of 1956 and 2006 celebrated their reunions earlier this year). Class parties were held on Saturday evening, but Reunion Weekend started with the football game on Friday night. Before the game began, Golden Eagles (alumni who graduated from Chaminade 50 or more years ago) stood on the Deep Blue C and were introduced to the crowd. Alumni from all years gathered in the end zone to cheer on their football team and catch-up.
