Coach’s Corner

Patriot Faithful!

Last Friday was an incredible day at Christian High School. The activities started early (6:20am) with live television coverage on KUSI. STEM Engineering, Woodshop, Cheer, Patriot Praise, Band (drum line) and students writing letters to Veterans were all featured on the Morning Show. The Alarm Clock Pep Rally with band, cheer, football
and our fantastic students, was a great representation of how amazing our students are.

Everyone participated and got all fired up for the big game! In a battle, the Patriots defeated Otay Ranch High School to advance to the CIF quarterfinals in Division II. The victory marked the first time that a small school has been victorious in a Division II playoff game. With current enrollment at 2,413 for Otay Ranch vs. a student body of 389 at Christian, this truly was an incredible win. With just over 6 minutes to go, and the game knotted up at 21-21 the Patriots marched down the field to the Mustang 1 yard line and on 4th down, freshman kicker Hunter Provience drilled the game winning field goal with 1:38 left on the clock. With the
victory, the Pats punched their ticket to advance to the CIF quarter-finals.
Tomorrow night (Friday, November 15) the Patriots will be heading north to face the Panthers of Vista High School at 7:00pm. These are two programs with rich football traditions in San Diego.

On Tuesday, our Girls’ Cross Country team clinched an undefeated City League Championship with Alaina Zamorano continuing her reign winning the league championship and being named the City League, Athlete of the Year for the third year in a row. It has been an amazing run (no pun intended) for this special group of girls.

CHS Girls’ Tennis finished up with a strong 8-4 record. Congratulations to Caitlin Sullivan and the doubles team of Chrysta Perez and Ashlyn Servant for making it all the way to the CIF tournament. It was a great season that saw each girl significantly improve over the course of the season. Great job Lady Patriots!

This Week’s Scouting Report:
The Vista Panthers are a very good football team. They have solid size, speed and are a well coached team. Their big back, #22, runs with power and enough speed to create problems for a defense. Vista has had a great season, with many wins, that included victories over Rancho Bernardo, Rancho Buena Vista, Morse, Mt. Carmel and Del Norte.
To be successful, the Patriots will have to continue that strong defensive performance from last week and find a way to control the clock on offense. There’s an old line in sports that says, “You can’t win it, if you aren’t in it.” With last week’s win, the Patriots are “in it” and want to take advantage of the opportunity. One of the reasons for the great tradition of Patriot football has been the program’s ability to rise up in big games.

Will this be another one of those epic Patriot Football runs?

The Prediction: Many of you have reached out to me about last week’s prediction.
Yes! We got that one right on the money with a 24-21 win as predicted in the Coaches’ Corner! So let’s not change a good thing…
It is going to be a nail biter…. Dads will be pacing, moms will often have their heads nervously buried in their hands, praying throughout the night, but the Pats will prevail!

Family Statement of Faith

  • The Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs.  The Bible itself, as the inspired, inerrant, plenary, and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe.  For purposes of CUSSD’s faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, Shadow Mountain Community Church is CUSSD’s final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.
  • We believe that there is one God eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, and His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through the shedding of His blood, in His bodily resurrection on the third day, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and In His personal pre-millennial return to rapture His Church before the Tribulation and His glorious appearing to set up His Millennial Kingdom.   
  • We believe that salvation is by grace alone through faith, apart from works by the merit of the shed blood of Christ, and that the born-again believer is eternally secure in Christ.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe in the individual priesthood of the believer.
  • We believe life begins at conception.
  • We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning; the uniting of one biological man and one biological woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. (Gen. 2:18-25.)  We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a biological man and a biological woman who are married to each other. (1 Cor. 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb. 13:4.)  We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.
  • We believe that the Scripture dictates standards of sexual behavior. The unique roles of the male and female are clearly defined in Scripture. Any promiscuity, homosexuality, gender identity issues or other deviations from Biblical principles is a sin that is offensive to God (Matt. 5:18-19; I Cor. 6: 9-10, 19-20; Eph. 5:3-5; 1 Thess. 4:3-8).
