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.

Saints bury shots and any hint of upset

 

After quick start by Cathedral Catholic, St. Augustine takes total control

 

Asked if he was concerned heading into the game, Saints coach Mike Haupt replied: "Absolutely."

 

By Steve Brand, Special to the U-T


This had all the makings of an upset.

No. 1-ranked St. Augustine on the road. Against parochial-school rival Cathedral Catholic. With the Western League title already won. Without sophomore starting guard Eric Monroe.
