Laney makes history with double win over CCSF

Wonder of wonders, miracles of miracles. The Laney College football team has defeated City College of San Francisco twice in one season for the first time ever. The Eagles (9-2) finished their best season since 2007 when they defeated the Rams 49-35 on Dec. 3 in the San Francisco Community College Bowl at CCSF. Laney had previously defeated CCSF 18-13 on Sept. 2 in the season opener in Oakland. “I think the emphasis of the season is that we started strong and ended strong,” head coach John Beam said. “They played with tremendous enthusiasm and never quit. “We won two […]

Laney wins conference title

No bowl for Laney this season

No bowl for Laney this season

Eagles get waxed by rival Chabot College in final game Ugh. That describes the effort and result in Laney College’s season-ending 48-21 defeat at the hands of rival Chabot College on Nov. 13 in Oakland. The Eagles finished the season with a 4-6 overall record and were 1-4 in the National Valley Conference. Laney had a slight chance to get a bowl bid with a 5-5 mark (indeed, two bowl teams did have that record) but the loss to the Gladiators (8-2, 5-0) put the kibosh on that thought. The team had gone to three consecutive postseason games. The defeat […]

Still hope for bowl bid

Still hope for bowl bid

Eagles must defeat Chabot to go There is no getting around it—for the Laney College football team to receive a postseason bowl bid it must defeat Chabot College on Friday, Nov. 13. One advantage for the Eagles—the game is at home. Game time is 7 p.m. But after a satisfying 38-17 home victory over the College of Sequoias on Oct. 30, Laney dropped an unsatisfying 26-21 game to San Joaquin Delta in Stockton on Nov. 7. The loss to the Mustangs dropped the Eagles record to 4-5 overall and 1-3 in the National Valley Conference. Teams have been picked for […]

Historic volleyball win

Eagles beat Marin for first time Jade Sanford predicted it. The Eagles bought into it. “I told the team before the game that we were going to win,” said Sanford, Laney College’s head women’s volleyball coach. “And it was a good feeling among the players that they could.” What “it” was was an improbable 18-25, 25-23, 13-25, 25-23, 15-10 home victory against the College of Marin on Nov. 6. It was the first victory ever against the Mariners and it was also the first victory ever against a team that it considered in the top tier (along with Solano College, […]

Eagles break losing streak in a big way

Eagles break losing streak in a big way

Laney wins four straight after suffering 17-game slide The long losing streak for the Laney College baseball team is over. The Eagles snapped a 17-game skid with an 8-1 home victory over Mendocino College on April 7, and then extended their winning ways for three more games, including a 9-6 victory over Bay Valley Conference leader Solano College on April 14. Laney won eight of 12 non-conference games before losing its first 16 games in the Bay Valley Conference. Everything seemed to conspire against the Eagles—poor pitching, poor hitting, shoddy defense and plain bad luck. Five of the losses were […]
