St. Hilary CYO volleyball takes two countywide championships


The St. Hilary Tigers CYO volleyball program left quite an impression at the Marin County Catholic Youth Organization championships Oct. 29, as the fifth-grade girls A and eighth-grade girls B teams came home as county champions, while the sixth-grade girls B team took second in their age group.

Of the 13 St. Hilary volleyball teams to play this season, nine made it to the postseason. The remaining six teams each made it to the semifinal round before falling out of contention.

St. Hilary Volleyball Director Scott Beauchamp said it was an "outstanding season" for the program.

All three St. Hilary teams squared off against Our Lady of Loretto CYO in their championship games. The eighth-grade girls defeated Our Lady of Loretto at Redwood High School to secure their title, and the fifth-grade girls won their title at Tamalpais High School. The sixth-grade girls fell to Our Lady of Loretto at Hamilton School in Novato.

Strawberry cyclist sets a new masters pursuit record in Mexico City

Hall-of-fame cyclist Mike McCarthy of Strawberry has added another achievement to his resume by setting a new world record at a Union Cycliste Internationale track event Nov. 16 in Mexico City.

McCarthy set a new men's 45-49 age-group record while competing in the Masters Individual Pursuit race, covering 3 kilometers in 3 minutes, 16.77 seconds at the Velodromo Bicentenario arena. A velodrome is a steeply banked indoor racetrack that allows cyclists to reach speeds greater than 50 mph.

McCarthy is a world champion cyclist who competed in the 1988 and 1996 Summer Olympics. He was inducted into the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame in 2010.
