The Gables football team remained undefeated throughout the regular season and won the District title.

With another fall season nearly tucked away for the Cavaliers, there have been some huge wins. All the sports had very good seasons and look to come back even stronger next year. All of the teams are very content with their seasons and had a lot of fun during the numerous competitions. The Cavaliers practiced extremely hard through the season to achieve their goals. Without further ado, lets look at how our Cavaliers did.


The football team finished with an impressive undefeated regular season. They also managed to capture the district title for the 2015-’16 school year after a decisive 20-10 win against the Columbus Explorers. Following one of their best regular seasons in recent years, the Cavaliers hope to take their victory into the play-offs. They also hope to continue their winning streak in the years to come.

“This season is blooming fruits from seeds planted from the likes of Ryan Francis, Robert Torrance and others who refused to quit and showed everyone what Gables football can overcome,” Coach Pollard said.

After another year, the girls’ swim team took home their third consecutive district title. The boys finished just off the podium with a strong fourth. Both teams had numerous swimmers that qualified for Regionals and supported the team there. Junior Hannah Cordes managed to qualify individually for states in the 500-yard freestyle and looks forward to the competition. With some younger members on both teams, the swimming team looks to get even better in the coming years.

“We met our team goals by the end of the season, though we had a few rough patches of rained-out meets and the like,” senior Maya Iskandarani said.

Both the boys’ and girls’ bowling teams had very strong seasons. Despite playing some very tough teams, they both finished with very good records. They also finished very high in the tournaments that they went to. The boys finished the season with a third place at Districts. Senior Matthew Monjarez even qualified for states for being the highest ranked bowler on a non-qualifying team.

“Bowling with my team has been an honor. Together, we hugged the lanes. We are in love with the sport and I hope next year’s team can do even better,” Monjarez said.

Cross Country:

The boys’ and girls’ cross country teams both had impressive finishes to their season. After losing a few members from last year on both teams, the cross country teams started out a little slow. However, they both pulled through and brought home two runner-up district trophies. Both teams qualified for Regionals and they are looking forward to the coming seasons.

“This cross country [season] was pretty successful. Unfortunately, we did not make it to states this year, but we had a great time sharing our passion for running with others and gaining friends along the journey,” senior Alexander Elortegui said.

The Cavaliers showed off their athletic abilities in some very impressive performances throughout the season. It has been very hard for some of these student athletes to maintain their school work while having practices and games. If you see any of these Cavaliers in the hallways, be sure to congratulate them on a great season.
