Let’s take a look at how our teams are doing

Winter Sports

Boys Basketball – Our boys fell to Godinez by a final of 104-87 last Friday night in the first round of the CIF playoffs. Kiron Dey led the way with 30 points and Justin Wu added 16. We want to thank everyone for their support this year and look to see everyone back in the gym to support our team next year.

Wrestling – CIF INDIVIDUAL CHAMPION – John Farah

Congratulations to John Farah who won the CIF Individual wrestling championship last weekend at the heavyweight division. John is our first CIF individual champion since 1988. He won 5 matches overall. 4 wins were by pin in the first period. John is currently ranked #20 in the state rankings. His season will continue this weekend at the CIF Masters Meet. The best wrestlers from Southern California will compete in this 32 man field. Good luck John!

Spring Sports

Boys Tennis – Congratulations to our boys tennis team on their 12-6 victory over San Marino on Tuesday. After winning CIF and State last year word in the tennis community is that our UNI team would be a little down this year. Our boys proved that we are still the team to beat. San Marino came into the season as one of the top three teams in southern California. Riku Hashiyada brought a wave of momentum to our team as he opened the match by beating one of the nation’s top ranked singles players. Our boys are on the road this afternoon for a 3:00 match with Santa Margarita. Good Luck Tennis.

Let’s take a look at how our teams are doing

Winter Sports

Boys Basketball – The boys put it all together in defeating Irvine 85-68 last Thursday night.  Joey Sfreddo led the way with an awesome performance scoring 37 points, dishing out seven assists and recording six steals.  Kiron Dey added 19 points.  Tomorrow night the Trojans travel to Godinez High in Santa Ana to take on the Grizzlies in the first round of the CIF 1A playoffs. Tickets may be purchased in the athletic office at UNI or at Godinez. Student tickets are $5.00 and adult tickets are $10.00.  Game time is 7:00 p.m.

 

Congratulations to our Boys Frosh/Soph team for capturing the PCL Championshi this year.

Girls Basketball – The Girls Basketball team finished League on a high note beating Irvine High 51-23.  Allison Piper led the Trojans with 17 points and Kiara Warren added 13 points.  Kiara Warren will represent our school in the 50th Annual North- South All Star Game on April 18th.

 

The Lady Trojan JV team took home a league Championship with outstanding performances by Kaci Blailock, Kenna Uyesgi and Karissa Shin. Congratulations girls!

Girls Soccer – Girls Soccer ended their season with a loss to Irvine High School, 2-0.  Speaking to the competitiveness and closeness of the league, Uni finished just 4 points away from a secure CIF berth, and 3 points away from a potential “At Large” entry.  With only six seniors graduating this year, the Trojans look to be very competitive when the 2015-16 seasons gets underway.  Thank you to the parents, fans, and players for a fantastic season!

Girls Water Polo – Congratulations to our girls water polo team for capturing third place in league. Our girls went into last Thursdays game with Irvine needing to win by at least 2 goals to secure third place. Our girls exploded for an 11-5 win. Win the win our girls were sent to the CIF playoffs for the first time since 2005. Our girls drew the #2 seeded Foothill Knights in the playoffs. Our girls were not able to stay with Foothill and dropped the match yesterday afternoon. This experience in CIF will help to strengthen our girls water polo program. The picture below is of our girls celebrating their big win v Irvine.  The link below is a write up in the register about our girls making it to CIF. Great season girls.

A Call for help from our Athletic Training Office

Our athletic training office is running extremely low on supplies and our athletic training budget is maxed out. Brittany our athletic trainer does an amazing job with all of our athletes but her hands are tied with the limited budget she is given through the district. In an effort to save money we are asking for any donations of the following items. She is in need of crutches, slings, walking boots, and a metal scoop for the ice machine. Also on our wish list are 3 or 5 gallon water buckets, water bottles, and coolers. If you have any of these items around the house and no longer use them please have your student drop them off in her office. If you would like to make a financial donation please drop off a check to the athletic office and note athletic training office in the memo line. Thank you for your help!

 

A very special THANK YOU to the Curtis Family for their financial donation to our athletic training office to help Brittany order the supplies she needs to keep our athletes safe.
