Crean Lutheran basketball runs out of time against Damien in SoCal Regional finals

LA VERNE >> The Crean Lutheran boys basketball team thought it could build a lead and sustain its momentum long enough to beat Damien on Tuesday night in the CIF Southern California Regional finals at Damien High School.

The Saints built a lead, but the Spartans finished with a lot more momentum.

Unfortunately for Crean Lutheran, Damien made two big runs Tuesday that ultimately decided the Division I Regional final. Damien went on a 12-0 run late in the third quarter and held off Crean Lutheran 58-53 to win the regional championship and advance to the CIF State championships.

Damien (31-4) will face Clovis North for the state title on Friday, March 11, at 8 p.m. at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento.

“It was a hard-fought game,” Crean Lutheran coach Nate Klitzberg said. “We put ourselves in a good position to continue to battle and fight through. Damien was a couple of shots better tonight. Basketball is a game of runs and they’re capable to go on runs. We went on runs, but their run was the one that finished it.”

This was the second time in a month that Crean Lutheran and Damien faced each other in a playoff game. Damien overcame a 20-point deficit to beat the Saints in a CIF Southern Section Open Division pool-play game.

In Tuesday’s game, Crean Lutheran (25-7) took a 9-0 lead to start the game, but RJ Smith fired right back for the Spartans with three consecutive 3-pointers to tie the score.

“It’s just something I work on,” said RJ Smith, who finished with 16 points. “We were down 9-0 and we put ourselves in a bad position. Big shots come in big games. I’m glad I hit those shots.”

The score was tied at halftime, but Crean Lutheran took control of the game by going on a 13-2 run in the third quarter.

After Damien coach Michael LeDuc used a  timeout, Damien went on a 12-0 run to give the Spartans the lead.

“Coach just came in and said we can’t complain,” Damien’s Kaleb Smith said. “The last game, we were down 20 and we went in the locker room tonight tied. We just take what we can get. We knew this could be our last game of the season, so we just gave it our all.”

The Saints stayed with Damien and had a chance to tie the game, but they turned the ball over late in the fourth quarter.

Crean Lutheran was down by three points with seconds left when Kaleb Smith missed a free throw, but Vyctorius Miller (14 points) fouled Smith and put him back at the free-throw line. This time Kaleb Smith put the game away.

Spivey Word and KJ Smith each scored 14 points for Damien, while Jimmy Oladokun added 10 points and seven rebounds.

Koat Keat had 17 points and 11 rebounds for Crean Lutheran. Rui Han and James Agany each scored six points.

“Our guys have shown such resiliency after a really tough Open Division,” Klitzberg said. “We had some heartbreaking losses. It’s hard to regroup and I’m proud of the way they did that. They fought to the very end. This doesn’t take away the season that they had. It was a historic season for Crean Lutheran basketball.”

Orangewood Academy girls basketball loses battle with Windward in SoCal Division I final

GARDEN GROVE >> The Orangewood Academy girls basketball team had its strong run through the regional playoffs end Tuesday night with a 61-58 loss to Windward in the CIF SoCal Division I regional final at Orangewood Academy High.

Orangewood Academy (24-10) won the San Joaquin League championship and went 1-2 in pool play of the Southern Section Open Division Playoffs. The Spartans beat Mount Miguel, Granada Hills Charter and Bishop Montgomery in the regional playoffs to reach the championship game.

Windward (23-10) went 0-3 in pool play of the CIF-SS Open Division playoffs and beat St. Joseph and Bakersfield in the first two rounds of the regional playoffs. The Wildcats upset top-seeded Rosary in the semifinals in overtime to reach the title game.

The Wildcats will play Salesian College Prep on Friday in Sacramento for the Division I state championship.

With the exception of two runs by both teams in the third quarter, the game was largely within five points throughout.

Orangewood Academy trailed 59-58 with 26.8 seconds remaining in the game after Sofia Saldivar got an offensive rebound and put it back up for a layup while drawing a foul. She sank the free throw to give Windward the lead.

The Spartans fouled Princeton signee Skye Belker, who sank two free throws to make it a three-point game.

Washington signee Hannah Stines took a 3-point shot at the buzzer for Orangewood Academy but missed.

“Windward, their program speaks for itself,” Orangewood Academy coach Leslie Aragon said. “But I think if we played anywhere close to how we did Saturday (against Bishop Montgomery), the outcome is a little different.”

Windward’s defense was stout all day but Orangewood Academy had scoring chances. The Spartans shot 36 percent from 3-point range but had 16 turnovers.

“They denied the ball out of Hannah’s hands a lot,” Aragon said. “When we did get the ball with Hannah, we were able to get downhill and run our stuff. They did a good job of getting us off our spots.”

Stines had a game-high 20 points for Orangewood Academy. Junior Jayvionne Brown had 13 points with 12 rebounds. Brya Arroyo-Gillcrese made four 3-pointers and had 12 points.

Windward shot 50 percent from 3-point range. Samari Bankhead had 16 points for the Wildcats and Belker had 10 points with six assists. Maya Stokes had 13 points with three steals. She had nine points in the fourth quarter to help seal the win.

Like many teams this season, Orangewood Academy battled adversity due to COVID-19 and injuries. Stines was enrolled at Troy in the fall but she returned to Orangewood Academy when she was not cleared by CIF to compete at the varsity level.

“Everybody has a story with COVID, but we had girls coming back from injury and girls that were transferring and I feel we never really got into a rhythm this season until Saturday night,” Aragon said.

Tuesday was the second regional championship game appearance for Orangewood Academy. The Spartans fell to Mater Dei in a regional final in 2017.

Does Your Company Need An Employee Referral Program? [Examples + Best Practices]

Finding qualified candidates to fill your open positions can be challenging. Job posting sites claim to make the process easy by connecting you with hundreds if not thousands of potential employees. But having such a large pool of candidates can be overwhelming.

Just thinking about the sheer volume of work involved in reviewing applications, narrowing them down to good fits, and then vetting those potential candidates is enough to make anyone’s head explode.

Download Now: Free Company Culture Code Template 

You work with or run a solid organization with wonderful employees. How do you make sure that you don’t get a bevy of potential candidates, but rather the right candidate?

Look at this like finding the perfect place to take your significant other on a special occasion. Sure, you could do a Google search for random restaurants in your neighborhood. You could even check a review site for recommendations.

However, you don’t know any of those people, so how much weight does their opinion really carry? Instead of taking a risk on a very special evening, why not reach out to the people you trust? Asking friends and family for a recommendation is a much safer avenue to finding the perfect date night experience.

What if we applied this type of thinking to your search for the perfect employee? Rather than leave it up to a random internet search, ask the people you already know, like, and trust… your employees.

What is an employee referral program?

An employee referral program is a structured system by which you ask existing employees to recommend people they know for open positions within your organization. Employees often receive some sort of incentive for their assistance.

An employee referral program leverages the power of your employees’ networks and can save you time, money, and a huge headache when it comes to hiring the best talent for your business.

Benefits of an Employee Referral Program

There are many benefits to utilizing an employee referral program as part of your hiring strategy. These include:

1. High Quality Hires

Good employees know what skills are necessary to excel in a position and understand the workplace culture. When they recommend someone for the job, there’s a good chance they have the qualifications necessary to successfully perform in the role.

2. Decreased Turnover Rates

With employee turnover rates on the rise, you’ll want to keep it front of mind when you’re making hiring decisions. According to ERIN, 45% of referred employees stay with a company longer compared to 22% from job boards and 33% from career sites.

3. Less Time and Lower Cost Per Hire

According to LinkedIn, employees hired through referrals take an average of 29 days to hire and onboard, whereas job boards can take 39 days and a career site can take upwards of 55 days. The less time it takes to hire and onboard means less revenue lost, fewer employees stressed because they are handling multiple jobs, and more productivity from your new hire.

Using a headhunter? According to Jobvite, you can expect to pay between 15% and 25% of the gross annual salary of the candidate. If you’re hiring an employee at $100k per year, that’s $15k to $25k in headhunting fees. The cost to reward an employee for an amazing referral? Around $2,000.

4. Increase Employee Satisfaction and Loyalty

Doesn’t it feel nice when you have a hand in the decision-making process? Employees that refer candidates feel like they’ve contributed to the company, making them more engaged and more likely to stay.

Employee Referral Program Ideas

Now that you see the benefit to you as the employer or hiring manager, how do you create an employee referral program that encourages your existing employees to introduce you to their quality contacts? There are a number of ways to do this and best practices that you can adopt to get the most out of your program.

Make it Clear What You’re Looking For

In a mid-sized to a large company, one department may have no idea what another one is working on. In order for employees to make connections, they need to know what your expectations are for the new position. When you reach out to employees looking for suggestions, provide them with all the details you can. This should include:

Make it Easy for Employees to Refer

Consider the referral experience from your employees’ point of view. Is there a simple form for them to submit when they recommend someone, or do they have to jump through a variety of complicated hoops to pass along their referrals? Some companies even host recruitment happy hours where existing employees can invite friends who might be a good fit.

The easier you make it for your employees to refer their contacts, the more quality candidates will be presented to you.

Keep Your Employees Updated on Referral Status

It’s frustrating to make a suggestion or an introduction and not know if it’s been acted upon. When your employee recommends a colleague, keep them updated as to the steps of the hiring process. Some times to check-in include:

  • When you receive an application
  • When you make contact
  • When an interview is scheduled
  • When a position has been offered to their contact
  • When the position has been given to someone else (after the candidate has been contacted)

Provide a Juicy Incentive

Surprisingly, this may not always be a monetary reward. While money is always appreciated, you can offer a combination of "cash" and experiences, time off, gifts, etc. For some, these may be even more desired than a financial incentive. One great option is to give your employees the choice. That way, you know they’ll be motivated to help. A few employee referral incentive ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

  • Cash bonuses
  • Gift certificates to their favorite restaurants and local establishments
  • Weekend getaways or week-long excursions for frequent referrers
  • VIP parking
  • Show tickets
  • Physical gifts (it’s important to let them choose so they don’t end up with something they can’t use)
  • Perks like a gym membership or massage

The sky's the limit when it comes to thanking your employees for their referrals. You can also consider using a platform like XoxoDay to make distributing employee referral perks as easy and streamlined as possible.

Show Appreciation for "Frequent Referrers"

If you’ve got employees that consistently send you quality employee candidates, acknowledge them publicly. This shows your amazing team members that they are appreciated and motivates other employees to step up their referral game.

Employee Referral Program Examples

Looking for real-world examples of these programs in action? We’ve compiled a few employee referral program samples to introduce you to some of the possibilities.

  1. Inmobi, a mobile advertising company offers referring employees the choice of a bike or a trip to Bali. They park the vehicles in front of the company headquarters to motivate employees to participate.
  2. Accenture, a consulting and IT company encourages philanthropy and community involvement by letting their employees donate a part of their referral bonus to a charity of their choice.
  3. Distillery, an American software development company gifts their employees new tech gadgets for every referral they make.
  4. Atlassian software company encourages employees to "Refer-a-Mate" and offers them $2,000 in cash bonuses.
  5. Intel tech company takes financial incentives one step further by doubling their employee referral reward for women, minorities, and veterans that are referred to the company.

If you’d like to tap into a pool of qualified, trustworthy, easy-to-hire (and onboard) candidates, an employee referral program can help. Instituting this type of hiring process in your organization can save you money, time, headaches, and the pain of having to repeatedly hire for the same position when your first employee doesn’t work out well. In addition, you’ll improve your workplace culture and enhance your brand.

An employee referral program is the best thing you can do to improve the quality of your incoming employees. Choose your incentives wisely and then watch the quality candidates roll on in.

If you're anything like me, you take about four minutes choosing a filter for your Instagram photo, and about four hours deciding on a caption.

Features of Good Instagram Captions

1. Your caption is on-brand.

Whether your Instagram page is personal or for your business, your captions should be on-brand, or reflective of your brand identity.

This encapsulates the nature of your Instagram's branding and tone of voice. For example, if your page is based on self-love, you should use captions that are friendly in tone, and use inclusive language to make people feel good when they scroll through your Instagram profile.

2. Your caption is simple.

Instagram captions can fit up to 2,200 characters, but you don't have to use all of them for your caption to be considered a good one. You ideally want to keep your captions clear, short, and simple for easy readability. You also want to keep your audience's attention enough to read it to finish.

The exception to this is if you're making posts that champion storytelling or other lengthy formats. Ultimately, it comes down to what your audience is looking for.

3. Your caption is memorable.

While your Instagram caption doesn't have to be a profound piece of literature, you can make it memorable in a number of ways. Depending on the type of post you're sharing, you can make it hilarious, thought-provoking, inspiring, or anything you want it to be.
