Girls Soccer:

The girl’s soccer team is in the Quarter Finals of CIF.  This amazing achievement is attributed to the commitment the players have to the team.  The level of play that the team is displaying cannot be described in words.  In the second round of CIF against Pacifica, their coach said after the game “that was like playing against the Manchester United Women’s team”.  I encourage you to come witness it for yourself.  Friday, Feb. 24th at 5pm at the Stadium we will take on Temecula Valley High School in the Quarter Finals.  Come watch the likes of Senior Kiana Ghamarifard, Vicki Chen, Iva Petkov, Raeann Artim and Juniors like Paige Metayer, Emma Goolsby, and Leyna and Lauryn Wood, as they try and complete one of the best seasons that the soccer team has had in a decade.

Friday night (2/24) @ 5:00PM in the Uni Stadium v Temecula Valley High School

You won’t want to miss this!
