#10 Boy’s Tennis Defeats Rancocas Valley 3-2

#9 Boy’s Volleyball Defeats Collingswood on the Road
Cinnaminson fell to Collingswood 2-1 on opening day of the 2016 season, but that did not deter them when facing Collingswood later in the year.

#8 Boy’s Lacrosse Defeats Williamstown on Senior Night
The boy’s lacrosse team struggled through growing pains in 2016, but picked up some impressive wins along the way. One of those wins, their first of the season, came on senior night against Williamstown for a second straight year. The Pirates picked up a 4-3 victory by preventing a late-game comeback attempt by the Braves.
#7 Girl’s Track and Field Defeats Delran in Suspended Meet
It took two days over a couple of weeks, but the girl’s track and field program won their suspended meet with Delran to take home a 5-0 dual meet record and the Patriot Division title outright. Cinnaminson needed just nine points once the meet resumed to take home the victory.
#6 Boy’s Track and Field Competes at Group 2 State Meet
The boy’s track and field program competed at the Group 2 State Meet on June 3 and 4. Cinnaminson competed in eight events that weekend. The big win came from junior Mike Ungvarsky. Ungvarsky took home the Group 2 state championship in the 3200, the first Pirate since 2004 to do so in the event.
#5 Girl’s Lacrosse Defeats Maple Shade 21-5
Girl’s lacrosse hosted Maple Shade for their final regular season game of 2016 and came away with a 21-5 win. Heading into the game senior Julia Averill needed just 11 goals to reach 100 for her career. Averill netted 11 goals and finished her career with 101 after she scored in a first round playoff loss to Red Bank Catholic.
#4 Softball Stuns Bordentown 4-3 in BCSL Tournament
Softball traveled to Bordentown early in the season for a BCSL Tournament game. Cinnaminson had previously lost to the Scotties 10-0 in a Patriot Division game. The Pirates scored a run in the top of the sixth on an RBI double from senior Olivia Pestridge that scored fellow senior Brooke Figiel to take the game 4-3 and advance in the tourney.
#3 Softball Falls to West Deptford in South, Group 2 Semi
In their final game of the season the Pirates dropped a heartbreaker to eventual sectional champion West Deptford 9-8. Cinnaminson used a three homer inning to cut a 7-2 deficit to 7-6. After taking an 8-7 lead into the bottom of the seventh, the Eagles rallied to win the game with a walkoff infield single.
#2 Baseball Falls to West Deptford in South, Group 2 Final
Baseball played in its second sectional title game in four years, but fell 3-1 to eventual Group 2 State Champion West Deptford. Junior Jack Conville threw a gem, allowing just four hits in six innings of work for the complete game loss. The Eagles scored three times in the first, while the Pirates scored once in the top of the seventh.
#1 Golf Wins Central-South Group 1 Sectional Title
The golf team enjoyed a second consecutive undefeated season in 2016 en route to finishing second at the Group 1 State Match.
