As the fall high school sports season stretches on, we use statistics and numbers to highlight notable individual and team performances of the year at San Clemente High School.
0—Number of interceptions senior quarterback Jack Sears has thrown this season. Sears has thrown 16 touchdown passes and has yet to throw an interception through seven games. In 2015, Sears was intercepted just twice.
4—Number of interceptions the San Clemente football team’s defense recorded in the first half of a 41-3 victory over Tesoro on Oct. 14. Junior Jack Shippy had two interceptions in the game, and returned one of them 75 yards for a touchdown.
20—Goals scored by the San Clemente boys water polo team in a 20-11 nonleague victory over Irvine on Oct. 8. The amount of goals was a season-best mark for the Tritons. Reilly Pfeiffer led the team with eight goals and Sean Edwards had six.
15:42—Senior cross country runner Carlos de Jesus’ finishing time posted at the Orange County Championships meet on Oct. 15. De Jesus placed fifth in the Division 2 varsity race.
