As of right now we are about $1000 dollars away from being able to purchase this tunnel. If you would like to make a donation to help offset the cost of this tunnel please send a check with your student to the Athletic office. If each athletic family gave $20 we would be able to order this tunnel right away. Donations can be turned into the athletic office or given to Coach McCaffrey. Checks shold be made out to UHS.

Boys Swim –   CIF Champions!

Congratulations to our boys swim team for winning the division 1 CIF Championship on Saturday night.

The Trojan boys swim and dive team are the 2015 Division 1 Swimming and Diving Champions! For the second year in a row, the boys clinched the team title before the last relay. Trojans finished the dominating performance with 317 points, 2nd place Dana Hills 220 points and Loyola 219 points. The meet got off to a great start with Daniel Tran, Judd Howard, Andrew Knoell and Will Hofstadter getting first place in the 200 medley relay. Hofstadter did his best impression of Olympian, Jason Lezak to come from behind and anchor the winning freestyle leg of the relay. Hofstadter got 2nd in the 50 freestyle as well as the 100 freestyle. Daniel Tran was the CIF champion in the 200IM and 100 Backstroke. Daniel lowered his own school record in the 100 backstroke to 48.20. Ken Takahashi got 3rd in the 200IM and got 8th in the 500 freestyle. Judd Howard got 2nd in the 100 breaststroke and 6th in the 200IM. Judd lowered his own school record in the 100 breast by achieving his season long goal of breaking 55 seconds with a 54.98. Andrew Knoell made the championship finals in both 100 butterfly(6th) and 100 backstroke(8th). Alejandro Ortiz made it to finals in the 200 freestyle(16th) and 100 freestyle(15th). Matt Wong capped off his high school swim career with breaking 58 seconds in the 100 breast with a 57.98 to get 15th place. George Horvath got 7th place in the 500 freestyle with a 4:29.51, which is the 2nd fastest time in school history. Stephen Yang made the finals in the 100 Butterfly and got 18th. Chris Havton made the finals in the 100 breast and got 17th with a season best 58.66. 200 free relay with Ortiz, Wong, Takahashi and Hofstadter finished 4th. The 400 free relay(Knoell, Ortiz, Tran, Takahashi) lowered the school record from prelims to 3:05.12. It was a very special season for the Trojans Swim and Dive team.

 

Below is the article that was in the OC Register about theswim championships.

BY DAN ALBANO – OCVARSITY.COM

Division 1 finals recap -Expectations were soaring for University’s boys swimming team at CIF-SS Division 1 finals. Point projections based on a scoring of prelims established the Pacific Coast League champions as the heavy favorite to capture a second straight title. There also were internal expectations.

“There was a huge expectation from the seniors from last year that we would uphold the tradition to win,” said Daniel Tran, one of eight key seniors for University.

But just like in 2014, University met the expectations and then some, capturing the Division 1 crown by almost 100 points at Riverside City College on Saturday night. The Trojans scored 317 points to outdistance runner-up Dana Hills (220) and rival Loyola of Los Angeles (220), which was hurt by a disqualification in the 200-yard freestyle relay.

“I think they’ll be happy,” Tran said of last year’s seniors.

University followed a familiar formula. The Trojans employed a deep and well-balanced CIF roster that produced points with first-place touches along with depth across most events.

The Harvard-bound Tran paced University by capturing the 200 individual medley (1 minute, 47.16 seconds) and 100 backstroke (lifetime-best 48.20) in two of the fastest times in county history. Tran’s IM ranks him third in county history while his school-record backstroke places him fourth.

“Surprised,” Tran said of being a double-winner. “(I) didn’t expect it. I knew it was going to be hard but I’m really happy, happy to score points for Uni.”

University’s title run was again sparked by a victory in the 200 medley. Tran teamed with senior Judd Howard, sophomore Andrew Knoell and senior Will Hofstadter to clock a 1:30.40, just three-tenths of a second off the Trojans’ Division 1 and county record of 1:30.10 from last season. The Trojans led at the midpoint but were rallied by a sizzling 19.94 anchor split by the Northwestern-bound Hofstadter.

Hofstadter later finished second in the 50 free (20.82) and 100 free (45.18). Howard also placed second in the 100 breaststroke, blazing a school-record 54.98 that ranks him fourth in county history.

The Trojans’ title sprint also featured a third-place by senior Ken Takahashi in the 200 IM (1:48.50), a sixth from Knoell in the butterfly (49.96), two B finishes by senior Alejandro Ortiz, B final points from senior breaststrokers Matt Wong and Christopher Havton and a seventh in the 500 free by George Horvath.

“We wanted to go out with a bang and do as much as we could and I think we accomplished that,” Howard said.

University sealed their title in the 400 free relay as Knoell, Ortiz, Tran and Takahashi finished sixth in a school-record 3:05.12.

“Great senior leadership,” first-year University coach Kevin Potter said. “That’s an impressive class.”

University’s title celebration included swimmer Aidan Yong, who is recovering after being hospitalized with a bacteria infection in his brain. Yong celebrated in the water with his teammates, including his brother, senior Matt Yong.

“It was a lot of hard work throughout the season that really led to this,” Hofstadter said.

  • Judd Howard. Sr.
  • Will Hofstadter, Sr.
  • Alejandro Ortiz, Sr.

Girls Lacrosse – The lady Trojans truly finished their season in style with a thrilling comeback win against Sage Hill on Friday, May 1st.  After falling behind 6-4 at halftime, the team worked their way back into the game through an impressive display of defensive talent, midfield composure, and offensive firepower.  With the help of Lily Huang in goal (who made 9 saves on 10 shots), the team allowed only one goal and netted seven to win the match 11-7!  Kathy Guo and Ashlyn Wang had three goals apiece and Clarissa Wu, Andrea Echeverry, Sarah Verdegan, and Honia Mohtashami all scored as well.  Kathy Guo finished the season as the third highest goal scorer in the Pacific Coast League, netting 67 times this season!  Overall, the team finished 14-8, the best record the team has ever earned.  Way to go, Girls Lacrosse!

Softball – Softball girls played great against Beckman but came up short 5-1. Our offense highlighted Mia Maher who went 3-3 with 3 stolen bases and a bunt that turned into a Homerun! Great defense all around anchored by our outfield of Alyssa Hernandez, Kiana Boman and Peyton Mattson. Today we take on CDM for our GOW and Senior Day! Come out and support our girls!

Boys Swim –  After a collection of great performances at league prelims, the Varsity Trojan Boys Swim Team is in great position to win the Pacific Coast League Championship. Without relays, if the meet were to be scored as is right now the Trojan boys would be in first with 380 points, followed by CDM(270) and Northwood(268). Ken Takahashi is entering finals as the top seed in the 200 Free and 500 free. Daniel Tran is entering finals as the top seed in the 200IM and 100 Backstroke. Will Hofstadter is entering as the top seed in the 50 Free and 100 Free. The event where the team is showing its most depth is in the 100 Breaststroke. Judd Howard, Matt Wong, Matt Yong and Chris Havton all made the championship final(Top 8). An interesting fact, every boy that competed in prelims for University High School on Wednesday made it back to finals. We are the only school in our league that can say that. It is going to be an exciting day for Trojan Boys Swimming on Friday. GO TROJANS!!!

Girls Swim – Our girls competed in the league prelims on Tuesday. We had several great performances and several of our girls will compete at league finals on Friday.

Our Uni boys won its 10 straight PCL boys’ tennis title.  The win over Irvine Monday was the 88th straight PCL win for the Trojans spanning 10 years.  This is a pretty incredible accomplishment considering how talented and stacked the PCL is from year to year. Our boys competed in the PCL individuals yesterday. Konrad Kozlowski has advanced to the semis. In doubles JT Joens and Tommy Wang made it to the semis along with Josh Piatos and Rohan Lageweg. The semifinals and finals will be played this afternoon at Woodbridge. Good Luck Boys tennis.
