Mater Dei Catholic football team sets standard in 2011 Metro-Pacific League Phillip Brents | Fri, Jan 06 2012 02:27 PM

The Mater Dei Catholic Crusaders football team not only made a return to the San Diego Section playoffs after an absence of three seasons but did it in triumphant fashion after claiming the 2011 Metro-Pacific League championship.

The Crusaders followed in the footsteps of the Olympian Eagles, the league’s inaugural champion in 2010, by finishing 3-0 in league play.

Mater Dei Catholic,seeded seventh in the Division IV playoffs, finished 9-3 overall following a 45-17 loss to second-seeded Madison in the quarterfinals. The Crusaders topped 10th-seeded Palo Verde, 44-7, in the opening round.

“It was a great season and our senior leadership brought Mater Dei back to a high level,” Crusader coach John Joyner said. "It was a year of success with a league title and the first playoff victory in school history."

Cole Lewis and Legrete each scored touchdowns in the season-ending loss to the Warhawks.
