JSerra is 4-0 and ranked No. 18 in the county. The Lions haven’t played as strong of a schedule as the Mustangs, but they also own a quality win over Huntington Beach, 20-13. Running back Casey Eugenio is having a fine season for the Lions. He has rushed for 426 yards and five TDs on 81 carries.

Boys Golf Takes Home Big Victory

*By Damian Dottore, Orange County Register

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.”
