“Our younger runners stepped up this season especially when varsity runners were out because of injuries,” said head coach Dan Eiser. “The girls had strong performances at the District championships. In that meet they defeated a team that was one place ahead of us the week before at the GCL meet. 
“I am most proud of the community the girls built together this season. They had a lot of fun, worked so hard and really should be proud of what we accomplished.”

The Eagles earned high honors throughout the season including earning their first GCL title since 2001.

“Highlights also included defeating co-GCL champion, Badin, 17-3 in week 7, hosting the first ever on campus football playoff game at Roger Glass Stadium - Home of the CJ Eagles, and finishing the regular season ranked 8th in the state final AP poll,” said head coach Marcus Colvin. “This was as good of a senior class that I have coached. They were a committed group of young men who over the past four years, helped build this program into excellence.
“This was our third consecutive season with a playoff birth,” Colvin continued. “I am also most proud that this team brought a GCL championship back to CJ.. We also earned the #1 seed in a very tough region in Division. There was a lot to be proud of with this team.”

“We had a young team this season, and as their coach I was proud of my team all year long,” said head coach Christian Alexander. “They know I am hard on them and I have high exceptions. When we had tough losses and things weren’t going our way, the boys never gave up and always worked harder each day to achieve their goals. I was proud of our response to adversity and growth in maturity in 2019.”
Another highlight from the season was the Eagles defeating the 2018 DIII state final runner-up, Dayton Christian, 3-0 at Roger Glass Stadium - Home of the CJ Eagles.
“Our group is resilient and constantly growing in maturity and we look forward to an awesome 2020 season,” Alexander said. “We will have more experience under our belt and even more desire to accomplish new goals. We are proud of what we accomplished this year, but we expect more with each passing season.”
