TORONTO--Orange Lutheran junior Blake Barens is making internation headlines with his outstanding play on the golf course. Last week Barens went 3-0 in a match play tournament to lead Team USA over Canada at the prestigious North America Cup. This tournament is modeled after the Ryder Cup, and features fourteen of the best golfers in the United States paired against Canada's top talents. Barens was one of only two players to go undefeated at the event, the other was his teammate Tyler Smith from Servite High School, two of five players from Orange County at the tournament.
On the final day Barens defeated the Canadian team captain in match play 2 and 1, highlighted by his 5 birdies on the front nine.
"I was really excited to represent Team USA." Barens said, "It was a totally different feeling than any other tournament. Usually the pressure is just on yourself, but this was a whole different kind of pressure to have a chance to represent my country."
The North America Cup was held at Weston Golf and Country Club in Toronto, Canada. It is known to golf fans as the place where Arnold Palmer won his first PGA trophy at the 1955 Canadian Open. This tournament has also included many top golfers of today such as Ricky Fowler and Servite High School graduate Preston Valder.
While Orange Lutheran golf may not be hitting the links this time of year, for Blake this is far from his offseason. He is partaking in a national schedule, where since Trinity League finals he has played two tournaments in Florida, two in South Carolina, and will be traveling to Massachusetts at the end of July. But next for Blake is what some consider to be the US Open of Junior golf, the Junior World Championship at Torrey Pines. Torrey Pines was the host of the 2008 US Open, where Tiger Woods won his last major. Barens was the low score at the qualifier shooting a 66 making himself eligible for the event.
As for Lancer golf, head coach Jeff Anderson is very excited about what Blake has done this summer and likes what it does for his team.
Anderson claims, "It helps the other boys on the team see the success that Blake has had and what he has achieved." He continues, "Blake's achievements are not just a result of his talent, but he puts in the work and is doing what it takes to be a great golfer."
Barens dreams to one day be a professional golfer and is seemingly taking all the right steps to get there. Even through all of this success he is determined to get to the next level and remains humble and proud to be playing for his school and his country over for himself.

NEWPORT BEACH, CA-- (Updated 4/30/11 11:35 AM)
With the 78th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft the St. Louis Rams have selected Austin Pettis ('07). He will join 2010 Heisman trophy winner Sam Bradford on the Rams who finished 8-8 last season. Immediately after the Rams made their selection they asked Pettis to leave Orange County immediately on a redeye flight to St. Louis for a press conference and to meet the teams coaching staff. Pettis was told over the phone by Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo that he will receive a playbook and that the team is very excited to have him. Rams General Manager Billy Devaney described Pettis to stlouisrams.com as a "Big receiver, smart guy, can play all three positions." He also told the site that, "He gives [the Rams] a lot of flexibility. He can play outside, can play slot, great hands." Along with versatility, the Rams really liked Pettis' "football IQ". They drafted him, in large part, due to his understanding of the game. Boise State runs a fairly complex offense and the Rams feel his in-depth understanding of that system will translate well as he adjusts to a NFL system.
This is the first Orange Lutheran player in school history to be drafted to the NFL. As a Lancer, Pettis was a part of the 2006 State Championship team. He was also voted to the OC Register's All-Orange County first team that same year. At Boise State he is the Broncos all-time leader in touchdowns and receptions.
The Pettis family had scheduled a draft party for this evening, however that has been rescheduled for tomorrow afternoon at the same location, because of the Rams request for Pettis to attend the press conference. Many people from Orange Lutheran are said to be attending.
This year for Orange Lutheran has potential to be monumental for the school in terms of Lancer Alumni being drafted. Gerrit Cole ('08) is a pitcher at UCLA and is projected by Baseball America to be the number two overall pick in the 2011 MLB Draft.
Other Rams selections in this years draft include: Robert Quinn (DE, 1st rd), Lance Kendricks (TE, 2nd rd), Greg Salas (WR, 4th rd).

Orange, CA--Juniors Darien Washington and Christo Kourtzidis have each been offered scholarships to play for Steve Sarkisian at the University of Washington. This confirmed by the Lancer football coaching staff this morning. This is the first offer for both players, despite the wealth of interest they have attracted across the country. Washington (DB. 5-11, 175) was one of the leading tacklers for the Lancer last season and has been a starter since his sophomore season. Kourtzidis (TE. 6-4, 230), who has also started since his sophomore season, scored 2 touchdowns on 31 receptions for 291 yards last year. If they accept the offer, these players will join former Lancer linebacker Garret Gilliland who is a freshman at Washington.

Orange Lutheran senior Mike Markovsky has chosen to play football at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD. Markovsky, who began last season as the Lancers starting quarterback, will play safety at Navy. He said that Navy was the place "where he could be the best person he could be" while continuing to play football at a high level. Markovsky signed a five year commitment where he will first play one season at the prep academy followed by four years at Navy. After those five years he will serve for another five years in the United States military. Last season the Navy Midshipmen went 9-4, losing in the Poinsettia Bowl to San Diego State. Markovsky is the third football player to receive a division one scholarship from this graduating senior class. The two others are Lorenzo Devers (Nevada) and Ryan Lefotu (UC Davis). Another Orange Lutheran senior, Scott Baron, is also considering Navy.

August 1, 2010
Orange Lutheran senior linebacker Lorenzo Devers (6’2” 225) has
committed to the University of Nevada, Reno. Devers started last season as an inside
linebacker and is projected to be a key part of the Lancers defense this season. The
Orange County Register ranked him in the top 15 among recruits for the class of 2011 in
Orange County. According to silverandbluesports.com, Devers was a priority among the
Nevada coaching staff, and could play linebacker or defensive end in Reno. Lorenzo
visited Nevada late last week and said he was ready to commit right then. However, he
took a few days to make his decision final, which he did earlier this morning. Devers is
the first Lancer to commit thus far. The Wolfpack will graduate two linebackers and two
defensive ends after this season.
