This week in RP sports

This was another intense week for Rohnert Park sports. The Rancho Cotate football team played their tail off against Cardinal Newman, the Rancho Cotate women’s volleyball team had a 2-2 weekend and other sports are moving towards the league championships.

Rancho Cotate Football: For those who were at this game, they witnessed a stellar performance from the Cougars. Sometimes, the losing team can win; this was the case with the Cougars. They entered halftime down only 4 points and came within a couple of fluky turnovers from pulling off a stunning upset. Though the team has lost two in a row, it’s clear last Friday’s game against the Cardinals will springboard this team towards contending for an NCS Championship. That chase toward the NCS Playoffs continues this Friday, 7 p.m. in Windsor.

Rancho Cotate Volleyball: The Women had a great week. In total the team won 4 games and lost 2. They also hosted the Nor Cal Tourney where they went 2-2 with wins against Bentley and Ukiah and losses against Benicia and El Molino. The NorCal Tourney consisted of 16 teams from all around the Bay Area and concluded with Benicia High School winning the Gold Division by beating Cardinal Newman and University beating El Molino for the Silver Division. The Cougars entered Tuesday night’s game against Ukiah at 11-10 and play again on Thursday against El Molino in Forestville starting at 6 p.m.

Rancho Cotate Cross Country: After competing in the Ragle Ranch Relays last Wednesday, the Cougars traveled to Analy High School for a Wednesday night meet against the Tigers of Analy. The meet starts at 3:45 and is another tune-up meet to prepare the team for next month’s NBL Championships at Spring Lake.

Technology High School Soccer: The women handled their business against Upper Lake in what was a rivalry game. The team won 2-0 and moved to 6-3 on the season. They also played Calistoga in Calistoga Wednesday evening and finish the week with a home game against Roseland University Prep.

Technology High School Volleyball: As was noted in last week’s sports update, even in defeat the Technology High School volleyball team showed great team chemistry, never got down on one another and enjoyed themselves whenever they won a point. They carried those good vibes into the game against Roseland Collegiate Prep and pulled out 3 sets to 1 victory. They couldn’t keep the momentum going against Credo High School, though, as the Gryphon defeated them 3 sets to 0. They traveled to Upper Lake for a rivalry game and then return home for a game against Calistoga which starts at 6:30.

Technology High School Men’s Soccer: The men lost to cross town rival Credo 5-1 and played Roseland Collegiate Prep Wednesday evening at 4:30 p.m. After Roseland, the team travels to Boonville, California for a Friday game against Anderson Valley High School. Then next Monday they play Sonoma Academy. Both of the games start at 4:30 p.m. The team is currently 7-5 overall and 2-4 in league play.

Credo Women’s Volleyball: The ladies are straight rolling this season. Entering this week, they are 11-5 overall and 8-4 in league play. They had a perfect week beating Sonoma Academy 3-0 and then beating rival Technology High School 3-0. Next up on the docket is a game against Roseland Collegiate Prep, who are currently 6-1 in league play. The Gryphon sit 3rd overall in the North Central II league trailing only St. Vincent De Paul High School (12-0) and the Knights of Roseland University. If you haven’t watched the team play yet, this Friday would be a good time to start. The game will start at either 5 p.m. or 6 p.m. and it will be at Credo High School.

Credo High School Men’s Soccer: The men defeated rival Technology High School 5-1 and play Friday night against St. Vincent De Paul. Entering this game against St. Vincent, the team is 4-1 with a 3-1 record in league play. The game starts at 4:30 p.m. and is a home game so community members could double dip and watch the Men’s’ Soccer team and then the Women’s Volleyball game if they wish. 

As always there’s plenty of sports for the community members to choose from this week. It doesn’t matter if you can’t make all of them, or even stay for the whole time. Just showing up is enough for these athletes. These men and women work so hard and they love it when community members show up to support them.
