Spring Sports Updates
Baseball is off to an 8-1 start and is in first place in the BAL. The pitchers have a combined ERA of 1.58. Baserunners are 52 for 55 in stolen base attempts. Nolan Jones '16 leads the team with a .667 batting average and freshman Phil Stahl is hitting .467. The team is looking forward to alumni day on April 30th with a big non league game vs. LaSalle.
The final race of the season was the City Championships on May 1 with a time trial in the morning followed by the top six boats by time going on to the finals. The B boat made an enormous improvement, finishing 8th of 19 and just seven seconds away from making the final. They were the only “B” entry in the event and so beat a number of school’s “A” entries. The A boat from HGP finished the time trial with the fastest time of the day - again. In the final they crossed the line third but due to a highly unfortunate accident with clashing oars and a protest from another school they were not allowed to medal or place in the final.
Despite the tough end to the season for the guys in the A boat, the program as a whole left its mark on the Philadelphia rowing scene in a big way. The upperclassmen in the A boat are primed and ready to compete on the varsity stage next year and HGP will definitely NOT be considered an underdog despite their “new guy on the block” status. Long-time rowing coaches and observers from the Philadelphia area commented to HGP parents, coaches, and administrators through the season that the boys rowed incredibly well for novices. The athletes and coaches are looking forward to the competition, new rivalries, and challenges that rowing in Philadelphia and beyond always brings. It was an historic season for so many reasons, not least because of the incredible, unheard-of success this brand-new program experienced. The team is poised to be an important part of Holy Ghost Prep for many years to come. Congratulations to the team, families and our coaches, JD Bridges and Tim Abel '11 for an outstanding inaugural year of this program.
Congratulations to Coach Justin Goulet '99 and the tennis team on winning their 2nd consecutive BAL Championship! The team went undefeated in league play and finished the regular season with an impressive 14-2 record. Good luck to Brandon Fritze '16 and Mark Pabalan '18 at the PIAA District One Singles Championships on Friday, April 29th at the Healthplex in Springfield, PA. The team looks forward to the District One Tournament, which begins the week of May 9th. Stay tuned for opponents, sites and times.
Track and Field
The Track & Field Team continues its dominance in the BAL as they are undefeated in league meets. Good luck to the 4x100m relay team of Dan Pawluczyk '17, Sam Huslin '17, David Kersten '16, Ricky Tyrrell '16, John Gasiewski '19 (Alt) and the 4x400m relay team of Sam Huslin, Patrick Donahue '16, Ricky Tyrrell '16 and Carlos Abarca '17. Record breaking thrower Eric Kasperowicz '16 was invited to compete in the Discus. Good luck to our athletes in this most prestigious event!

Steve Cerbara '16 wins the PIAA AAA State Golf Championship!
Congratulations to Steve Cerbara, who made history on October 27th in exciting fashion on the highest stage in Pennsylvania golf. Steve won the PIAA AAA State Golf Championship, shooting +5 overall at Hertiage Hills in York, PA. He was two shots ahead of the field at 17, where he shot a bogey. Then he shot par for 18. Geoff Rice from Great Valley tied him on the 18th hole, which forced a playoff. Steve won the one-hole playoff and clinched a most exciting win.
Steve becomes the first HGP Golfer to ever win a state championship. Congratulations to him and Coach Mark Walder '02 on this most exciting finish in program history.
