Congrats to first year Head Baseball Coach Mike Moretta and his team which captured the Cornell Cup Championship earlier this week (week of May 14) by defeating Olmsted 3-0. Freshman Matt Cambria threw a three hitter over six innings and junior Colin Sullivan made a spectacular catch in right field to rib Olmsted of runs. The Centaurs also recently won the Cardinal O’Hara baseball tournament. This young squad has only three seniors. (information taken from Dr. Kresse’s 5/20/18 Hilltop Notes).


First year head baseball coach and CHS PE teacher, Mr. Moretta, has hit the ground running despite carrying only three seniors. Last weekend the Centaurs won the Cardinal O’Hara tournament including a late comeback win against rival Hutch Tech in the championship game. Volunteer assistant coaches Grandits and Barry have been crucial to guiding the young squad as well! (information taken from a 5/11/18 City Honors Facebook post).

It’s been a stellar year for the City Honors/Cardinal O’Hara Varsity and Junior Varsity Club Hockey Teams!
