This week in RP sports

Basketball season in Rohnert Park tipped off this past week with Rancho Cotate, Credo High School and Technology High School all starting. The Cougars, as documented last week, are not at full strength as they are missing three players due to football commitments. The Cougars’ cross country team also wrapped up their season in Hayward Sat. Here’s what happened in Rohnert Park sports.

Rancho Cotate Cross Country: The Cougars competed in the Division 3 North Coast Section championships. The Women finished 17th out of 20 team, with their runners finishing 72, 79, 84, 106, 128 respectively. The Cougars were led by junior Madison Monroe, who finished the 5k course in 21:17.9. The next two in line were sophomores Natalie Nava and Nyema Mitchell, while seniors Kelly Soriano and Olivia Case rounded out the Cougars’ five runners.

On the men’s side, they finished 20 out of 22 Division 3 teams. Their runners placed 91, 115, 142, 144 and 145 respectively. Junior Jon Medina led the way for the Cougars in a time of 17:46.6 over the 5-kilometer course. He was followed by senior Anthony Clark, sophomore Zack Paden, junior Diego Acosta and sophomore Jackson Alcaide.

Rancho Cotate Men’s Basketball: The Cougars opened the season with a 72-55 loss to Roseland University Prep. The next game is a Nov. 26 affair against Analy High School in Sebastopol. This game will be followed by a local showdown game between the Cougars and the Credo High School Gryphon. This game will be Dec. 3rd, so community members should look forward to watching this one.

Rancho Cotate Women’s Basketball: The ladies opened up their season with a 38-33 victory over Casa Grande High School. Mario Newton’s squad will look to continue their momentum on Dec. 3 against Ukiah High School. 

Due to Thanksgiving break, the Cougars will not have school and will instead be spending time with their loved ones. This is why there are not very many games scheduled over the next week for the Cougars.

Credo Men’s Basketball: The Gryphon are off to a great start at 3-1. They opened up their season beating Summerfield Waldorf 53-41, Mendocino High School 54-29 and Technology High School 76-21. They lost their last game against Analy High School 60-35. The Gryphons next game will be against Rancho Cotate.

Credo Women’s Basketball: The women are 2-0 to start the young season, with wins over Mendocino High School 46-27 and Technology High School, 56-12. The Gryphon’s next game will be Dec. 19 against Analy High School starting at 7 p.m.

Technology High School Men’s Basketball: The Titans have a busy schedule during Thanksgiving week. They play Mon. and Tues. games against Drew High School and Elsie Allen respectively. The game against Drew starts at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 against Elsie Allen. This is all leading up to the Calistoga Tournament starting Dec. 5 and running through Dec. 7.

Technology High School Women’s Basketball: The women have started the season 0-2, after losses against Elsie Allen and Credo High School. The Lady Titans, like the men, have back-to- backs against Drew and Elsie Allen. The ladies will also compete in the Calistoga Tournament on Dec. 5 and 7.

Because of the upcoming holiday season, the games will not be as prevalent, but there are still plenty of games to look forward to for community members.
