There was only a week between cheering on our basketball teams in the warmth of the gym, to the snow on the ground and the start of another spring sports season. The boys’ basketball team made a statement in the Lewis and Clark League with a convincing semi-final win over Horizon Christian, punching their ticket to the league championship game. The game showcased great grit, team play, and a dunk by Sophomore Jonah Zeller as the exclamation point. We were participants in the league championship game at Wilson High School where the Eagles ultimately fell to the eventual state champions De La Salle Knights. The boys’ team went on to play Pleasant Hill in the first round of State. It was a great back and forth contest, but we fell short, losing 46-52.

Our Middle School Boys Blue team also secured a spot in the league championship game defeating West Hills Christian 56-45. The win set up a championship game with Riverdale in which the boys’ team lost a heartbreaker 37-40…

As the lights turned off on the Davis-Gant field, the energy of the evening could still be felt. Eagle fans young and old came to cheer on the boys’ and girls’ soccer teams in their homecoming match against Oregon Episcopal School. The girls’ team walked away with a 3-0 victory, avenging their loss from the state championship game last season. The boys’ team ended in a draw after an exciting and thrilling finish that left fans and players wanting more. The whole evening embodied what Catlin Gabel Athletics is all about, tough competition, good sportsmanship, growth of players and the team as a whole, and ultimately an opportunity for the Catlin community to come together and celebrate our student-athletes. The success of the evening could not have been possible with the help from countless volunteers, our spirit group, facilities and grounds, alumni relations, and numerous others. Thank you everyone for contributing and making this such a successful …
