CCSF soccer has banner day as both teams clinch titles

Both of the City College of San Francisco soccer teams clinched conference titles on Tuesday.

The men did it by beating West Valley, 3-1. Jonathan Hernandez, Tobi Oladapo and Gian Marco Zancarnaro each scored a goal.

“This conference championship is special because it’s happening to a good group of kids. They have been great and they worked hard. They are peaking at the right time,” head coach Adam Lucarelli said in a statement.

The women’s team beat Skyline, 10-0.

The victory delivered the Rams their seventh-straight Coast-North Conference title.

All-American Jesse Bareilles netted four goals, Danielle Nicotera added three, Olivia DelRosso scored twice and Mia Toracca rounded out the attack.

“This [championship] means a lot to our players,” first-year head coach Jeff Wilson said. “Gabe Saucedo [former head women’s soccer coach] did such a great job of creating an expectation to win, and coming in that was one of the things I wanted to establish. It’s great to see how much joy it brings to the team.”

The CCSF women’s volleyball team won their last two matches, each one in straight sets, 3-0.

The victories ensured a playoff berth for the Rams, who were led by Kijana Best with 31 kills for the week.

The first season of water polo at CCSF wrapped up on Nov. 4 with a 10-6 loss to San Mateo.

The CCSF men’s basketball team beat Mt. San Antonio, 73-71, on Sunday. Armani Collins and Zachary Copeland shared tournament co-MVP honors.

The women’s team beat De Anza, 88-57, with Gabrielle Vigil and Destiny Kelly leading the way with a combined 50 points. Nahrie Pierce contributed a double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds.
