St. Rose of Lima captures first county championship since 2004

 

St. Rose of Lima (Chula Vista)

2014 San Diego County Champions

 

By Max Mercy, SDPSN Staff Writer

 

Last year St. Rose of Lima came so close to winning the county championship, that it haunted coach Mike Arney for a whole year. In 2013, his top player, Jaylen Hands (Mater Dei Catholic's freshman phenom), was as cold as an ice cream cone. His second best player was out of town. And yet they almost pulled it out against Instituto Mexico.

 

That was 2013. This year, the Lancers played like a team possessed by past failures. They won't have to look back again.

 

 

Photos of the 2014 All-County Teams and Elite 8

 

will be sent to the schools on Wednesday

 

 

By Halo Joe, Saints Alumni

 

Players who were selected to the Saints Alumni Parochial Championships All-County teams and Elite 8, will finally receive their 8x10 color photos with their names and schools they represent. They will be sent out Wednesday to their respective schools. We will post these photos once they have been received by the players.

 

The next pages will show the All-County Teams from 2003-2013. In the 2003, we had no JV photo, and no names on the Varsity. In the 2007 Varsity photo, we are missing names. If you can identify players from those photos please send us an e-mail at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Now check out the next pages, and go down memory lane.

Heavy-hearted, the Cathedral Catholic Dons wore orange ribbons in their hair during a non-league soccer match against visiting Point Loma on Monday.

The gesture was in memory of Olivia Erlbeck’s father, who was laid to rest that morning after dying Feb. 4 from a heart attack. Kurt Erlbeck was 50.
