Prep Sports: Gilroy High stadium on track for Sept. 25 opening

GILROY—The $2 million renovation project at Gilroy High School's Garcia-Elder Sports Complex, which was delayed earlier this summer, remains on track for a Sept. 25 completion date.

Prep Roundup: Nov. 11

The Gilroy field hockey team played two completely different halves against Leland. The Mustangs scored four goals in the second half Friday, breaking the 1-1 tie from halftime and powering them to a 5-1 win at Leland.  Katrina 'KC' Carter led the way with a hat trick in the game. Tayler Sillaci and Morgan Rogers each added a goal of their own.  The win was great for us, especially have a very slow and sluggish warm-up which translated into a slow start," Gilroy coach Adam Gemar said. "But the flood gates opened and we were able to pull off the victory.  We are very excited for the playoffs and finishing third overall."   The win gives Gilroy a 12-3-2 overall record on the season and a 9-3-2 record in the Mt. Hamilton A-League — which should give it the No. 3 seed in the Central Coast Section playoffs.  The final seedings will be determined today at a coach's meeting, but if the Mustangs receive the No. 3 seed they will have a first-round bye and will play in the quarterfinal game Saturday.  Check back here for updates on the Mustangs' playoff seeding as information becomes available.  VOLLEYBALL Gilroy drops season finale It was a hard fought battle for the Gilroy volleyball team Thursday, but it wasn't the ending it wanted.  The Mustangs lost their season finale 3-1 at North Monterey County by a score of 26-24, 18-25, 12-25, 21-25.  Senior Leilani Mah led the offense with 15 kills and added five blocks in the game. Sarah Weiby added eight kills while Jenna Clonts had five of her own in addition to four blocks.  Gilroy displayed stellar defensive passing from Gabby Martinez, Clarrisa Quezada and Savanna Branden. Senior setter Nicole Green left it all on the court while executing the offensive attack.

Prep Roundup: Oct. 21

The Gilroy field hockey team was excited up to kickoff the second half of its season, but things didn't go its way. The Mustangs were shutout 6-0 by Archbishop Mitty on the road Friday.  Coach Adam Gemar said he felt the blame should fall on himself, not his team.  "I feel, as the coach, I lost this game for the team," he said. "Every player tried their hardest tonight and every player has a huge heart,  but I haven't prepared them well enough. I haven't given them the proper tools to win games like this. I can't promise we will win time, because I can't, but I can promise we will be better prepared." The Mustangs (7-2-2 overall, 4-2-2 in league) will look to rebound against Leigh at 3:30 p.m. today.  Cougars blank York The Christopher girls field hockey team is on a roll. The Cougars have won their last four straight, most recently topping York 3-0 on the road Friday. Jordan Evanger scored two goals for Christopher, while Kristen Flores scored one. The Cougars are now 9-3 overall and 8-1 in league play. They will be back in action at 3:30 p.m. Friday at Carmel.  CROSS COUNTRY Mustangs' Ruelas leads girls to fourth place finish, boys 15th There' no stopping Gilroy's Monica Ruelas. Ruelas finished first in the girls varsity race at the Monterey Bay Invitational at Toro Park Saturday with a time of 21:09.  Karla Lozano was fifth in a time of 23 minutes.

Jesus Sanchez finished in a tie of 19:30, just seconds before teammate Jesus Ochoa who finished in 19:35. Gilroy will be back in action at 5 p.m. Wednesday at the Center Meet III at Pinto Lake.  VOLLEYBALL Cougars shutdown North Salinas Christopher has won two straight after beating North Salinas 3-0 on the road Thursday.  The Cougars won 25-18, 25-16, 25-14 to get back to a . 500 record on the season (11-11 overall, 4-4 in league).  Oliva Tabron led the way with 14 kills, four blocks and two digs for CHS. Cheyanne Dela Merced had 31 assists, six digs and four kills.  Christopher will take on the Haybalers of San Benito at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at home.  BOYS WATER POLO Cougars drop close one to Harbor in OT Christopher and Harbor were evenly matched, but there had to be a winner. The Cougars lost 14-12 in OT to the visitors Thursday at home. The two teams scored three goals in each period to leave the game tied at 12-12 at the end of regulation. Harbor tacked on two more in OT for the win. Stats from this game were not immediately available. The Cougars will host Everett Alvarez at 5 p.m. Tuesday.      GIRLS GOLF Mustangs finish season strong The Gilroy girls golf team celebrated its last game of the season in unique fashion Wednesday.  Wednesday's match at Gavilan Golf Course was the final one for seniors LaTherian Harrision and Cierra Montoya-Valdez, and they went out in style.  The duo sported crowns for their Senior Day to celebrate their accomplishments over the past four seasons with the Mustangs. Montoya-Valdez, who is still limited to putting due to a case of appendicitis, carded a 75 while Harrision finished strong with a 55. Harrison had two one putt bogeys on two par3’s — Holes 6 and 8.  She put her tee shot in the green side bunker on Hole 8, a 92-yard Par 3. Harrison got out of the bunker in one shot and her first putt stopped short of going in for par, she tapped in for her second bogey of the day.  The girls also played Tuesday against Stevenson at Spyglass Hill Golf Course. Harrison carded a 65 in that match while Montoya-Valdez shot an 80.  Coach Daniel Valdez had one final message for his seniors:
