February 22 – North Coast Section Division VI First Round

#5 CSD (15-12)  8 – 11 – 7 – 13 = 39
#12 El Sobrante Christian (15-1) 19 – 6 – 7 – 8 = 40

Slow start down 19-8 at the first quarter hurt us as we closed out the
game 31-21 in the last three quarters, and 1-11 FT did not help our
comeback attempt. Tough conclusion to the 2016-17 season especially for
our two seniors – Milana Boren and Yadira Pacheco – on this young squad.

CSD Eagles Girls Basketball closes their season with 15-13 record (14-11
regular season) for Coach Weinstock’s first season as Head Coach

3rd Place in first ever CSD Classic

I just learned that CSD will be on National Television again tonight and
tomorrow.

Josh Bolander, an ESPN anchorperson who covered our football game last
night won the “Highlight of the Year” award and he will be on ESPN
Sportscenter tonight at 8:30pm PT, 11:30pm ET showing him winning the
award, the highlight he made on us, and Cameron Baer and my message
congratulating him.

On Saturday, Hidden Heroes was here last fall and have decided to air a
piece on us on CBS this Saturday.  While seeing the preview, I was moved
by Luke Bella, Spezio Harmount, and Jax Pedersen’s comments on the
preview.  In the Bay Area, it will be on KPIX on Saturday at 9:00am,
outside the area, you can find your TV schedule here
