Cross Country

UNI XC competed at the famous Mt. Sac Invitational this past weekend. Our girls team raced in the individual sweepstakes race among some of the best in the nation. Collette Lowengrub ran an amazing race, finishing 9th overall with a time of 18:11 on the hilly course. Avery Klauke finished strong in 22nd place with a time of 18:55 which is over a minute faster than her previous time on this course. Rounding out our top 7 was Cecilia Langlois, Alissa Kopylova, Sydney Field, Roseanne Yu and Amberley Martinez. On October 30th we will be competing at the Pacific Coast League Finals at Mason Park where we hope to send multiple runners to CIF.

The boys Cross Country competed this last weekend at the Mt Sac Cross Country Invitational. Our team was limited to 37 runners due all of the construction that has been taking place. Our top boys for the day were Ryan Duffy, Raja Batra, Micheal Blinstrub, Chris Lohmeyer, Adam Gish, Ethan Jenkins and Caio Souza. Next up for the boys is league finals here at Mason Park next Tuesday. Come out and support. Go Trojans!

Football

Tomorrow night is our last football game of the season.  Come help show your support as we honor our seniors on Senior Night against Beckman.  Kickoff is at 7pm!

Girls Golf

Yesterday was the 1st round of Southern Section CIF Individual Championships at Western Hills Country Club. This is as tough a venue as any.  It was a long day and after 6 hours, ALL 3 of our girls competing finished top 36 out of 144 players to move on to the next round at River Ridge in Oxnard, CA. Lexi Kim finished tied for 5th at 75.  Dana Choi 79 and Nodoka Honda 80.

Up next for our PCL Championship team is to defend our Southern Section CIF Title at Miles Square on Monday, Oct. 29th.

Girls Tennis

The girls tennis team finished the regular season on Monday defeating Beckman to finish 10 and 0 in league play and 16 and 0 for the regular season.  Yesterday the Varsity and JV girls competed in the Pacific Coast league individual tournament.  Freshmen Jane Lee and junior standout Cami Brown won their matches advancing to the semi-final round being held today at Irvine high.  In doubles, sophomores Mya Wang and Emily Markus continued their incredible season winning both matches and advancing to today’s semis.  The girls are currently 33-1 on the season.  Senior captains Jackie Yoon and Kamar Alajeely also won their two matches advancing to today semi-final match.  The girls will begin the CIF team playoffs next Friday as the #1 team in Division 1.

Girls Volleyball

The girls volleyball team played its first playoff match in nine year last week. Falling short in a thrilling 4 set match against Burroughs in Burbank. The girls were feeding off the energy of the crowd and were looking to upset the host team. This season had so many great moments, taking Woodbridge to 5 sets twice, going to playoffs, all the bus rides, the girls came together as a team and now they know what playoffs feels like. Although this season is over, we are proud of these girls and are already looking forward to next year.

Boys Water Polo

The JV /Frosh Soph team had a 1st place victory at the Western Water Polo tournament this last weekend.  After 5 hard fought games, the Trojans walked away with a first place trophy.  Rounding out a great season for the entire water polo team.  Out of 5 tournaments, the Trojans took home two 1st Place trophies and one 2nd place trophy.

League play is now over.  This past week, after winning a victory against Irvine, and suffering a defeat against Beckman, the boys Varsity water polo team has finished their regular season with an 18-11 record.  This is the best record in 7 years that the boys water polo team has seen.  Having a winning record will bring them into consideration for CIF playoffs.  The CIF division playoffs will be announced on Saturday with a possible game on Tuesday.  Leading the team with goals is Sophomores Stewart Campbell and Matt Wallin, while the back court defense is orchestrated by senior captain goalie Cameron Bernardo.  The entire water polo team deserves a congratulations for all their hard work throughout the season, and dedication to each other every day at practice.  Good Luck to the boys water polo team over the next few days.

We completed the league season yesterday with a victory at Beckman. The girl’s golf team shot a 195 to Beckman’s 208. This win puts us in a tie for first place in league with Woodbridge. If Woodbridge wins their final match today, we will finish as PCL co-champions for the second straight year. Dana Choi and Nodoka Honda capped off their senior season with one over par 37. On Tuesday, Woodbridge edged us out 183-186. Tuesday was the seniors final home match at Strawberry Farms. Nodoka, Dana, and Emy Zhu were recognized in this home finale by their teammates. They have had a successful career on the Uni golf team: 3 time league champs, a CIF southern section title and a CIF state title. We are going to miss them as they move on to the next level. Nodoka will continue with her golf at division 1 Cal State Fullerton. Dana is heading to Georgetown to play on their division 1 golf team. Emy is still undecided, but will definitely carry her academic achievements here at Uni to a prominent school next year. She does not plan to play college golf. The Uni program is very proud of our senior class. Good luck to them in their future.

Girls Tennis

The girls tennis team moved to 12 and 0 on the season with a hard fought victory over Peninsula high of Rolling Hills Estates.  The top ranked Trojans were led by junior Cami Brown, senior Dana Feng and freshmen Jane Lee who all swept their singles matches.  The girls continue league play with a match today against Portola high at the Uni courts.

Girls volleyball ended its season 6-4 in league and pushed Woodbridge who finished 2nd in league to five games. As we look forward to playoffs for the first time in nine years, we will see who we get in the first round of playoffs when it is announced this Saturday. The girls volleyball program is on the rise here at Uni and we thank everyone for their support over the last three months.
