We are always proud of our Lions. Every year, we see students reach their potential and show the world who they are as individuals. They are first and foremost students, but our Lions are also stellar in other aspects of their lives! We are so proud of the following students who signed their letters of intent to the universities of their dreams this Spring!

JSerra is a boys golf team filled with potential, having a the most talented lineup of players that Brian Schippel has had since he began coaching the Lions seven years ago.
The Lions still won, posting a 207-251 victory against the Saints, and are off to the best start in school history, improving to 6-3. But to compete in the Trinity League, the Lions have to find a way to get into the 180s.
“They are all good players and they work really hard to prepare. This is by far the most fun that I have had coaching,” Schippel said. “Now, it’s just a matter of learning how to win and have and have five solid scores. They have all done it. But as a group they haven’t done it.”
Every year the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) holds special awards to recognize PGA professionals in their area of expertise. This year JSerra’s head golf coach Brian Schippel, was awarded the 2011 Junior Golf Leader of the Year, for the Metro Chapter.
Nominated by a member of the PGA, Schippel then had to do a presentation held in front of the special awards committee, talking about skills, techniques, and more, before a PGA professional is awarded.
“I feel honored to be recognized by my peers for the work that I have done promoting the game of golf with the junior golfers in our area,” said Schippel.
