CIF Play-Off Updates
The Uni Girls Golf team finished 3rd last Thursday in Oxnard at the CIF SCGA Qualifying Tournament. They have made it further than any Uni golf team has in our history! The girls are competing today in Riverside for a spot at the state tournament in Pebble Beach. They need to finish in the top three to qualify. Congratulations and best of luck!
Junior Cecilia Langlois and Freshman Collette Lowengrub will be competing at the Division 1 CIF Southern Section Prelims tomorrow morning in Riverside. We wish these girls the best of luck as they race alongside the best in Southern California. GO UNI XC!
The girl’s tennis team defeated 2nd seeded Peninsula high, 12 to 6 in the CIF D-I semi-final played at Peninsula high school yesterday, Nov. 8th! The 6th seeded Trojans were led by sophomore Cami Brown who swept her three sets playing singles. Junior Dana Feng also won 2 of her 3 sets at 3rd singles. In doubles, freshmen Emily Markus and Mya Wang continued their incredible season winning all three sets and senior captain Kayla Agustin and freshmen Therese Garcia won 2 of 3 sets at third doubles. The girls will now move on to the CIF final on Friday against Pacific Coast league rival, CdM. The teams have already met twice this year with the Sea Kings coming out on top both times.
Looking through the record books, this will be the 15th time a Uni boys or girls tennis team has played in the CIF final at the Claremont Tennis Club since 2002!
