Girl’s varsity soccer has started off on the right foot this season, improving from last year’s losing season to an impressive record of 7-1-2 (wins-loses-ties). Ashley Morton (grade 11), the three year goalie for the varsity team, says the improvement is due to “an overall increase in respect and experience; we just know each other all so well by now, we’re all playing and working together.” The team is looking forward to a potential North Coast Section (NCS) spot and more success in the future.
The soccer team had a rough start, but has been improving recently. The team has gotten used to their system of playing which has contributed greatly to their growing improvement. Matthew Petrie (grade 12) says that they “have a lot more games to play this season” and he expects “big things to come out of these games.” With the improvement, the teams record is 5-5-1, with a league record of 1-1-1.
The varsity basketball team has had better seasons, as they are currently 4-9 and 0-1 in the East Bay Athletic League (EBAL). Various team members have suffered injuries this season, which has “taken away opportunities to be more successful,” Coach Petersdorf said. There have been “some really exciting games” and players are showing improvement and promise, like Aaron Kawahara (grade 12) and Dylan Medeiros (grade 12).
Girls varsity basketball has been doing very well this season with a record of 8-5 (wins-loses). With a new coach and a diverse team, the girls are working hard for NCS. Mariana Garza (grade 12) has “high hopes for some wins” in the coming games.
