Baseball

Baseball played in the Ryan Lemmon tournament over spring break and started the tournament 2-0 with wins over Trabuco hills and el Modena. With loses to San Juan hills and Segerstrom they finished the tournament 2-2 and are 9-11 on the season.

Boys Golf

The Boys Golf team suffered its  1st league defeat the Thursday before Spring Break.  It was a close match against Woodbridge at Rancho San Joaquin.  The team came up a bit short with a score of 193 to Woodbridge’s 189.

This past Tuesday, the boys team had a huge and crucial bounce back win against previously undefeated Beckman High School at home.  University won the match 192 to 193.  With this win, Uni moved into a tie for PCL 1st place with Woodbridge and Beckman.  Both Senior Captain Connor O’Brien and Sophomore George Lu carded an impressive 2 under par of 34 to lead the team in scoring.  Also just as important was Freshman George Huang’s birdie on the 9th (last hole) to seal the win!  This was a complete team effort where literally every shot counted.

Up next is a rematch against Northwood HS at Oak Creek Golf Course today at 2:25pm.  The team record now stands at 4-1 in league play and 5-2 overall.

Go Trojans!!

Boys Lacrosse

The Boys Lacrosse team heads to Beckman on Friday (April 12th) for a league game.  Varsity starts at 4:00 PM and JV follows at 5:15 PM.  Come out and support!

Girls Lacrosse

The Lady Trojans were back in action after a restful Spring Break, playing away to Northwood yesterday afternoon.  Although the team did show that they had fallen a little out of rhythm during the break, they still took care of business on the field, walking away with a victory 15-7.  Mya Wang (So.) and Grace Colunga (Jr.) led the scoring with 5 goals and 4 goals respectively.  Elliot Welsh (So.)helped feed the offense, notching 3 assists.  Defensive footwork from Erin Jeon (Fr.), Mackenzie Field (Sr.), Donia Mohtashami (Sr.), and Caroline Mumm (So.) kept Northwood scoreless for the first 15 minutes of the game.  The biggest test of league play happens on Friday when the team plays host to Beckman.  Both teams are undefeated in league play.  It is the Girls Lacrosse GOW, an important match, and our home venue, so get out there and support the program as they look to fight for their first league title in program history.  Go Trojans!

Softball

The Uni Softball team is off to Northwood today.  They will play at home on Monday, April 15th at 3:30 against Portola.  Come out and support!

Boys Swimming

The Uni Boys Swim team travels to Foothill High School for the Foothill games today.  Best of luck to the team!

Girls Swimming

University has reached the point in the season where the meets are frequent, the training demanding, and the competition intense. Time improvements are tough to come by, as the varsity swimmers work to maintain their focus on long term goals. Yesterday, the swimmers visited Woodbridge. It was a beautiful day, with tough competition against an experienced team. Three freshmen swimmers were particularly impressive for UNI. Alex Lindenberg posted the only individual victory for the Trojan girls, coming from behind to win the 500 Freestyle with a personal best time of 5:23.14, and getting very close to a CIF consideration time. Annika Nie took second in the 100 freestyle, with a personal best of 56.57. Mirabella Levine also achieved a personal best in the 100 breaststroke, scoring a CIF consideration time of 1:08.94. The rest of the season won’t get any easier, but Uni’s girls keep getting tougher.

Boys Tennis

The top ranked boys tennis team moved to 7 and 0 in the Pacific Coast league with a 14-4 win over Portola high.  Sophomores Nic Conta and Eric Jiang won their two matches playing 2nd doubles for the Trojans.  The boys will continue league play today with a match at Irvine high.

Track & Field

The Boys and Girls Track and Field enjoyed a week off with Spring Break and will start up again this Thursday here at Uni against Woodbridge. This weekend some our athletes will be competing at the OC Track and Field Championships at Mission Viejo High School. Go Trojans!

Boys Volleyball

Come out and support the Uni Boys Volleyball team tomorrow night (April 12th) as they take on Portola at home.  Lower levels start at 4:00 PM followed by Varsity at 5:15 PM.
