600+ Wins for Aquinas' Giron

Coach of Note

Carlos Giron, St. Thomas Aquinas (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.)

To put Carlos Giron’s national-best 645 wins in perspective, a rookie coach in Hawaii, playing the maximum 19 matches, would need to piece together 36 straight undefeated, untied seasons before matching Giron’s win total. Daunting? Yep. That's a lot like St. Thomas Aquinas’ program has been for most opponents for 26 years under Giron. Sure, the days of absolute dominance – such as the team’s run of 119 straight wins during the mid-1990s -- may be gone, but that hasn’t changed the fact the Raiders remain a force in Florida Class 5A. Giron has a chance this year to put himself 50 wins ahead of the No. 2 coach on the all-time, Paul Heenehan of Ramapo (Franklin Lakes, N.J.). Ramapo recently concluded its fall season.

A Look Back: All-Time Greatest Nolan Showcase Matches

 Nolan Catholic vs. No. 1 Colleyville Heritage
Colleyville Heritage had Caitlin Kennedy, Jessica Maxwell and Michelle Makasini and were ranked No. 1 in both the FAB 50 and the NSCAA polls. The match was played at Doskocil Stadium at Nolan Catholic and it was back and forth. Colleyville Heritage owned the majority of the play but Nolan Catholic was very organized and got numbers behind the ball very well and attacked very. The first goal came off a set piece about 40 yards out for Nolan Catholic and they were able to flick a ball on for an oncoming Nolan forward, Megan Jagger. The score was 1-0 at halftime and then just into the second half Nolan scored again to go up by two goals - the goal was off a nice entry pass in behind and the Nolan midfielder Savannah Campbell got on the end of it and served the ball nice and low and it was knocked in by Texas A&M standout, Becky Olson. The game was back and forth for the remainder of the game and Nolan was able to hold on to the lead and win 2-0.

 Colleyville Heritage vs. Ursuline Academy
The very next year Colleyville Heritage made it to the final once again but now they were up against Ursuline Academy. This match was the battle of private school's best and public school's best. Ursuline scored early off a corner and really had several other chances as the game went on and Colleyville Heritage could not get their rhythm until about the last five minutes of the match when they put all sorts of pressure on Ursuline and ended up scoring off a counter which was saved and then the rebound found the back of the next for a 1-1 tie. The match went into OT and nothing much happened during extra time so the match went into penalties. The shootout was from the spot and it was a good one - the first two shooters from each team converted and then Ursuline missed. Colleyville Heritage went on to score twice more and had a chance to win the game with their fifth shooter but the Ursuline GK saved the shot. Ursuline won in with the seventh sudden death shooter.

 Nolan Catholic vs. No. 1 St. Thomas Aquinas
The match was the 8 p.m. game and the weather was perfect. The match was televised locally and there was a crowd on hand of about 500 people. The matched started with Nolan taking a bit of a beating but then it settled down into a pretty good match where all the play was in the midfield and in the 17th minute Nolan built out of the back and played into the midfield and up to the two targets - the targets played off each other and got in behind and TCU Soccer Buzz All-Central Region, Jackie Torda scored off an assist from current junior midfielder Chelsea Heimann. Nolan finished the half off very string putting together many other string opportunities. The second half St. Thomas was very good - during the first 15 minutes they created about six corners and put Nolan on their heels for most of the half. Nolan did pick it up midway through and started getting themselves into the attack a bit more and that is when St. Thomas struck on their first goal of the match on a counter and then about five minutes later in the 75th minute it took the lead off a corner. Nolan threw everything forward and for the next five minutes created several chances to even the game and in the 79th minute was awarded a penalty shot when the current Nolan junior forward Mallory Baum was taken down in the box and she attempted to spin a defender. Then she was a freshman and took it upon herself to take the game tying penalty as
time expired. The game ended in a 2-2 tie.

Coppell vs. No. 1 St. Thomas Aquinas
This was one of the best games I have seen but the fact that there was no score made it rank below some of the other games. This game was back and forth - St. Thomas Aquinas' Kiki Bosio was all over the place as well as Coppell's Jasmine Avant. The speed of the game was impressive. Not many chances on goal but the midfield play was fun to watch - a lot of creative play, combination play, and hard tackles. The match went into PKs as well and Coppell had a chance to win the game on the fifth shooter and most of the shots were saved by both keepers. The St. Thomas Gk saved the shot and in sudden death St. Thomas, which was led by Caitlin Miskel, won the game on the next shot.

2011 San Clemente (CA) vs St. Thomas Aquinas (FL)
The marquee match Saturday pitted San Clemente and St. Thomas Aquinas in a morning contest that was played in a light drizzle. Aquinas, which had defeated FAB 50 No. 1 McKinney Boyd (McKinney, Texas) a day earlier, was 18-0 and had not allowed a goal all season. The Raiders’ streak was snapped with 9:42 left in the first half when an unmarked Coxe one-timed a shot past the Aquinas keeper. The play started when Farris served a ball from the left wing the top of the 6-yard box, intended for Tessa Andujar. Aquinas’ keeper charged off her line and disrupted the cross, but the ball ended up at the feet of Coxe, who right-footed it into the right side of the goal. Aquinas pressured San Clemente late in the second half, but could not get the equalizer, ending the Showcase with a 3-1 record. By virtue of its win over Boyd, Aquinas was considered the No. 2 team at the event.

Showcase Participants well Represented on the ESPNHS 2011 All-American Team

Winter All-American Lists | First-Team Player Bios | State-By-State Winter All-Stars

Twelve of the 36 players on the ESPNHS All-American Teams participated in the Nolan Showcase in 2011.

The winter high school girls' season might be limited in the number of states that play, but the depth of talent is staggering.

This year's ESPNHS Winter All-America selections, 36 in all, features 33 players who have committed to NCAA Division I programs, one headed to an NCAA Division II power and a pair of juniors who have yet to commit. No fewer than 10 of the players have been part of the U.S. youth national pool.

Five ESPNHS Winter first-team members led their team to state or sectional titles. All 12 players helped their teams into the POWERADE FAB 50 for at least one week this season.

California led the way with 17 selections, followed by Texas with 12, Florida with five and Arizona and Hawaii with one each.

The ESPNHS Winter All-America team is compiled using a combination of players’ high school performance, coaching and media recommendations, and recruiting details. These players hail from winter-playing high school soccer programs. ESPN RISE waits until after all local all-star teams are named before releasing its All-America list in order to provide adequate research time.

YAHOO Sports Story on Ursuline Winning US Record 21st State Title

Wed Feb 23 09:03am EST

School wins 21st straight state title, setting U.S. record ... or does it?
By Cameron Smith

You'll have to forgive the Ursuline (Texas) Academy girls soccer program if it feels a little aggrieved, despite winning what should be a national-record 21st straight state title on Saturday. The Bears have good reason to be upset: Despite the fact that their 21 consecutive titles is a national record, it's not being credited as a nationwide mark because of the association in which Ursuline competes.

As pointed out by the Dallas Morning News' Corbett Smith, Ursuline competes in the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools -- TAPPS -- just as all other private schools across the state do. That stands in sharp contrast to most states across the country, which integrate public schools and private schools in the same athletic governing body.

As it turns out, in states that have separate public and private athletic organizations, only the public leagues are considered when determining historic records. Therefore, the 21 trophies currently ensconced in the Ursuline athletic facilities are worth little more than two decades of bragging rights over other all-girls schools, according to the folks at the National Sports Record Book.

According to Smith, Portland (Ore.) Catlin Gable High holds the record for most consecutive girls soccer titles with 11. That's right, the current record-holders have been outdone by the Bears by a whopping decade worth of state titles, yet are still recognized as the most successful streak-owning girls soccer program in the nation.

If there was any question that Ursuline was deserving of recognition, the Bears likely answered those questions in their title-game victory. After falling behind by a goal in the early moments, Ursuline responded with four consecutive goals to run roughshod over runner-up Fort Worth (Texas) Nolan Catholic School, 4-1.

"At this point in the season it's more about emotion then about technical or tactical play," Ursuline coach Jamie Cantrell told the Morning News. "We knew if we got down one, we trained for it."

At that point in the season, Cantrell's team has known exactly what to do time and again. It's just time that the rest of the country acknowledged its greatness.

Tuesday, February 22, 2011


The Nolan Showcase Presented by JATO is days away from premiering the 2011 Showcase Highlight Video. Please check back and see if you made the final cut.

Congrats to this years participants and congrats to Ursuline Academy who won their 21st State Title and to Nolan Catholic who was State-Runner Up to Ursuline for the 11th straight year. Congrats to Hockaday who took the SPC Title.

St. Thomas Aquinas finished as Florida Class 5A state champion. Sarah Guensler and Ana Cuffia scored as St. Thomas Aquinas beat Newsome, 2-0, in the state final. The Raiders outscored opponents 146-2 with 24 shutouts by senior Hofstra signee Julia Kantor. One of the goals allowed came in their only defeat, a 1-0 loss to San Clemente (San Clemente, Calif.). Aquinas holds victories over Texas power McKinney Boyd (McKinney, Texas).

San Clemente look ahead to a CIF Title as they opened the first round of the playoffs with a 5-0 win over Orange Lutheran. San Clemente faces Yucaipa tonight.

All the other Texas public schools are in the middle of district play and we wish each and everyone of you the best as the season moves on.

The nation's #1 team, McKinney Boyd, is down 1-0 to Florida's, St. Thomas Aquinas at half on a Julie Schumacher goal - her third of the event. Both teams coming off opening day victories. Although we are 10 degrees warmer than opening day, it is still a bit chilly with a cool south breeze.

Aquinas is unbeaten at 16-0 on the season while Boyd is also unbeaten at 1-0 as the Texas schools started games on Thursday.

ESPNRISE: Ice-Cold Weather, Red-Hot Wins

DAY 1 HIGHLIGHTS - Most of the favored teams won opening-day matches in freezing weather.



POWERSERGE - With 8 of the TOP 25 teams in the nation - the Nolan Showcase could drastically change the national title race.

Nolan Showcase showcases the best of winter soccer; POWERADE FAB 50 No. 1 could be settled on the field


While the Tri-Valley Classic and Excalibur high school girls’ soccer events put order to California winter state rankings, it’s the Nolan Showcase in Texas that ties together the country.

This year’s event, being held at six venues in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, features eight of the current Top 25 teams in the POWERADE FAB 50. In addition to No. 1 Boyd (McKinney, Texas), No. 2 Coppell (Coppell, Texas) and No. 3 Ursuline Academy (Dallas, Texas), No. 24 San Clemente (San Clemente, Calif.) and No. 16 St. Thomas Aquinas (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) are part of the mix.

The following is a quick overview of this year’s event, which starts Thursday in Fort Worth:

WHAT’S AT STAKE: The POWERADE FAB 50 No. 1 ranking may be settled on the field this week.

KICKOFF CLASSIC: One of the event’s marquee matches will be held on the opening night, under the lights at Texas Christian University as No. 1 Boyd opens its season against No. 3 Ursuline. Ursuline has the benefit of entering the contest having already played 12 regular-season matches.

MAJOR PLAYERS: In addition to the five teams listed above, No. 5 Plano West (Plano, Texas), No. 10 Clear Lake (Houston, Texas), No. 11 Seven Lakes (Katy, Texas), No. 26 Martin (Arlington, Texas), Allen (Allen, Texas), Plano East (Plano, Texas) and St. Stephen’s (Austin, Texas) figure to be contenders for bracket titles.

WHAT TO WATCH: Florida’s reputation will be on the line in the form of St. Thomas Aquinas. American Heritage (Plantation, Fla.) traveled to California for the Tri-Valley Classic and promptly returned home after an 0-4 showing. If Aquinas does not show well in Texas, it might prove that the balance of power in high school girls’ soccer is west of the Mississippi River – either in Texas or California.

RANKINGS SHAKE-UP: Several Texas teams that start play Thursday have climbed artificially high in the FAB 50 simply because they are undefeated – while Florida and California programs have already played their way into a ranking order. Currently, seven Texas teams hold Top 10 spots. That will certainly change after this week’s Nolan Showcase as the Texas teams will start to play their way into order.

PLAYERS OF NOTE: Coppell senior midfielder Chioma Ubogagu (Stanford), McKinney Boyd senior forward Kelley Monoque and senior defender Meghan Streight (both to Texas A&M), Southlake Carroll defender Taylor Schneider (Notre Dame), St. Thomas Aquinas senior midfielder Ashley Oswald (Vanderbilt), Nolan Catholic senior Alexis Rios (Mexico’s under-17 national team) and San Clemente senior midfielder Frannie Coxe (Yale).

CLOSING CONTEST: Perhaps the most important Nolan Showcase match takes place Saturday at Nolan Catholic when St. Thomas Aquinas takes on San Clemente.

UPDATES: ESPN RISE will deliver daily scores and stories from the Nolan Showcase, and updates throughout the day. Matches start Thursday at 2 p.m. locally and run through 9:30 p.m. Games start at 10 a.m. Friday and Saturday.

Sunday, January 9, 2011
