Tuesday, September 18, 2018 and Friday, September 21, 2018 now mark two important dates in Cristo Rey De La Salle history. Tuesday, September 18th was the first ever CRDLS athletic competition against CA Crosspoint followed by CRDLS’ first home game also against CA Crosspoint on Friday, September 21st. Friday’s game brought out huge support from faculty, families, and fellow student associates. Although our Lady Mustangs were unable to win against CA Crosspoint in either matchup, they continue to show significant improvement.
Our Girls Volleyball program brings out the uniqueness of athletics and our Corporate Work Study Program in that each day of practice and competition brings out a different combination of student athletes because our student athletes have one work day per week. Even with this, our players have adapted and are ready to compete under the direction of Coach Julio Orozco, St. Elizabeth Alumnus, ‘05. Coach Orozco shares:
“As a young team with a different set of girls everyday at practice, each day is important and the girls see that and they have put it on themselves to work hard. Really happy to see the strong work ethic in each girl. The future is bright for the Lady Mustangs!”
Coach Orozco has also brought in other St. Elizabeth Alumni to assist with practices and games so that our Lady Mustangs can better learn and understand volleyball.
Thank you to all who have come out to support our Lady Mustangs! We would also like to thank The Olive Street Agency for providing our new uniforms. We are grateful to the Olive Street Agency as they will be providing new uniforms for all of our athletic teams this year.
