Our High School Cross Country team, at 27 runners,
is the largest roster we have ever fielded! The team was
comprised of experienced returners and talented beginners. Throughout the season new personal records were
achieved and senior Itai Levin made school history by
setting a new record for the 5k, beating out Ben Rainero
’ 11 by 3 seconds. Additionally, 13 of our Cross Country
runners represented the school at North Coast Section
Championships, the most in recent history.
Under the new leadership of Director of Soccer, Roland Tillack, the soccer program implemented a new system of play that was uniformed from 5-12th grade. The
primary goal was to lay the foundation for each team to
play possession-based soccer at all levels.
Starting in the fall with 5-8th grade boys soccer, there
was immediate improvement in the organization and
performance. This resulted in our Boys Varsity team
advancing to the BAIAL semi-finals, and losing a heartbreaking overtime game to Town School.
At the high school level, the JV team improved tremen-
dously throughout the season. Their hard work and dedi-
cation paid off, evidenced by a 1st place finish at the
JV Jamboree. The Men’s Varsity soccer team had a very
successful year, despite their league record. The win/loss
record does not reveal that the majority of games were
hard fought. The Jaguars dominated possession and were
frequently first to shoot on goal. The 2014 squad will be
best remembered as a group of young men who were
asked to absorb loads of new soccer information, both
technically and tactically, within a short period of time.
Our women players kicked off their season in the win-
ter and spring. Our student-athletes were the beneficia-
ries of Coach Roland’s new style of play. Our 5-6th grade
soccer team nearly qualified for BAIAL playoffs, but were
edged out in point totals. This would have been a first in
school history. During the spring season, both the 5-8th
and high school programs showed great promise, and
actively competed for playoff spots.
Jaguar volleyball continues to establish itself as a reputable program for San Francisco independent schools.
Our coach and student-athletes took much pride in the
fact that across all levels, from 5-12th grade, all players
were able to serve overhand by the end of the season.
At the middle school level each of our teams was highly
competitive in their divisions with most teams competing in CYO Playoffs and the Girls Varsity team advancing
to the BAIAL semi-finals.
Our high school JV Volleyball team experienced tremendous growth by the end of the season; all the girls’
skills had improved, and every player could pass to a
target and serve over the net. The Women’s Varsity Volleyball team kicked off with a fabulous team retreat in
