Come out and see our football team play what will be an exciting game against Irvine on Friday night. It is a Pink Out so wear Pink to show your support and raise awareness for breast cancer. Game time is 7pm!
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.
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.
Boys Water Polo
Boys Water Polo plays at home today (10/11) against Portola at 4:00. The Trojans are hoping to defeat the Bulldogs for the 2nd time this season. Come out and support the team!
