Colt Athletics Spring UpdateThu, 28 January, 2016 at 9:41 am
The Men’s Basketball, newly reinstated, Women’s Tennis and Baseball Programs are competing this week and throughout the spring semester.
The Basketball team has lost four of five starters due to injury and has grinded their way to 3rd place, (9-9, 2-3) in the toughest conference in the State. The Colts battled the #1 Ranked CCSF Rams and lost a nail bitter, 84-79. The Colts then ended Las Positas College’s 10-Game Winning streak, 80-73. Next Wednesday, the team will host Skyline College at 7 p.m. Coach Reynoso, Hardee and Litvinchuk are to be complimented for keeping the team together and focused with such a role reversal for all players due to season-ending injuries.
The Women’s Tennis program is back from hiatus and will open this Saturday at Home versus American River College. The Colts will play Non-Conference matches thru February then compete in the always tough Coast Conference to qualify for the State Playoffs in May. Come down to our BEAUTIFUL courts and watch these ladies represent Cañada in a “first class” manner with Coach Rick Velasquez and Assistant Coach Garth Haynes.
The Baseball team will open their season at home today versus Solano College at 2 p.m. The Colts will again make a push for the State Tournament which they have qualified for 7 of the last 9 years. This year’s group has veteran leadership across the board and will once again play the best Non-Conference opponents to prepare for 20 Coast Conference games starting in March.
Please take the time this spring semester to go out and support the student-athletes in your classes as they represent the College locally and Statewide! All programs have rosters and schedules on their websites for your enjoyment.
