Friday Sports Roundup: Track and Field and Swimming Find CIF Success as Spring Season Winds Down
Posted 05/19/2017 03:17PM

Congratulations to all our spring athletes, who have put in consistently impressive effort and hard work (despite their unbelievably busy school schedules). A special shout-out to our graduating seniors for their leadership and dedication to Prep athletics these last several years! Thank you everyone for yet another wonderful spring season.

Track and field looks towards CIF finals with several strong competitors. Evan Pattinelli, Warren Hosseinion, Hanna Barakat, Natalie O’Brien, Sasha Codiga and Sophie Gitlin are all slated to compete (the largest group from all local schools!) after incredibly successful seasons. Both squads head to Cerritos College tomorrow, May 20, for the finals, followed by the Masters Meet next week and possible State in early June. Both boys and girls swimming turned in impressive performances in the CIF finals. Bumping up to 14th this year, the girls squad improved upon last year and showed a lot of promise looking forward to next year. The boys leapt up to an impressive 4th place in CIF this year, their best finish in years.  

 

After a wild card victory over Charter Oak, boys tennis entered CIF looking threatening. Their season was the best in years under Coach Yang, but Aliso Niguel put up fierce competition and ended up overcoming the Rebels 11-7. Boys volleyball was upset 3-2 in the first round by Oxnard after a strong and nearly undefeated season. Showing promise at the beginning of the match, the Rebels took charge but then lost it several times, making it a close, up-and-down matchup. Oxnard came through in the final game and held them off, ending their CIF journey.

After a final victory against Firebaugh last week, varsity baseball fell to Arroyo Grande in the wild card round. The upset made it the first in years that the team didn’t advance farther in CIF, due in part to several graduated senior players and a couple injuries on the team earlier this year. Their efforts resulted in a strong finish in League, with promise for a resilient team next season.
