Thad Bosley’s Hall of Fame Induction just part of jumping O’side Sports Scene
This is a great time for sports fans. Professional baseball playoffs have begun. Football is in full swing. Basketball is right around the corner.
But wait, that’s not all. Oceanside and El Camino High Schools, rich in sports history, have several other sports in mid-season.
El Camino may have its best girls’ golf team ever. Coach Billy Isles’ team, led by juniors Denise Dela Cruz and Allison Johnson, is in the top 10 in the San Diego Section CIF rankings. Dela Cruz is in the top 20 in individual rankings. Senior Kristin Hazelwood, junior Tiffany Green and freshman Katrina Cullens make up a stellar top 5.
Oceanside girls’ golf is led by seniors Taylor Lincoln and freshman Bella Nance. Coach Kevin Grump’s Pirate team includes seniors Addison Abbruscato, Jazmine Gallegos Romero, Nancy Ramirez and Janea Welch. Lincoln, who is fighting through a knee injury, has her sights set on qualifying for the individual tournament.
Oceanside and El Camino meet this Thursday at Oceanside Golf Club at 3:00 p.m.
Girls’ and Boys’ Cross Country
For Oceanside and El Camino girls’ and boys’ cross country it’s good news and bad news. Both teams are experiencing unprecedented turnout, while losing seasoned runners to other sports. Oceanside has 19 freshmen and sophomores competing and El Camino has 15 freshmen.
Oceanside coach Jesse Guillen’s girls’ team is led by three freshmen, Anabel Ojeda, Felice Moran and Ashley Luis. The trio led the Pirates to a win in the first Avocado East League Meet.
“We have the largest group I’ve ever had, yet our boys’ team only has 1 returning runner,” said coach Guillen. The boys’ team is led by returning sophomore Blake Robinson, while Anthony Luis improves with each event.
El Camino, the defending CIF Division I girls’ champion, also lost upper-class runners to other sports. Senior Taylor Shelgosh, junior Olivia Jarvis, sophomores Liliana Prieto and Chloe Fowler and freshman Isabel Ortiz lead the way for coach Terra Sarnacki’s girls’ team.
The Wildcat boys’ team won in its first Avocado East League Meet, led by senior Moses Crawford, junior Mario Trasvina, sophomores Alberto Osuna and Miguel Velasquez, and senior Pheleep Sidhom.
Oceanside and El Camino will compete at the second Avocado East League Meet on October 27 at Guajome Park at 3:15 p.m.
El Camino’s girls’ tennis team is led by junior co-captains Moeka Quindoy and Cianna Young. Coach Maureen Ferrel said “We are a young team that lost 7 seniors off last year’s team.” El Camino meets Oceanside Tuesday October 18 at Oceanside at 3:15 p.m.
We will check in on girls’ volleyball and boys’ water polo as their seasons continue.
