This past Saturday our West Hills cross country team raced in an invitational at Kit Carson Park. The event is called the Bronco Round-Up and 37 schools competed on Saturday. West Hills ran in the division 2 races with our freshman, junior varsity and varsity teams racing. The Freshman girls took 4th place out of 6 teams and 3 of our girls medalled. Freshman boys placed 3rd out of 13 teams with 5 medalists! Our junior varsity girls took the W coming in first out of 6 teams! The junior varsity boys got 9th place out of 11 teams. The varsity women’s team took 4th place out of 12 teams. My reliable source Katy Willweber took 7th place out of 90 girls and 1st out of the wolfpack runners! Our varsity boys took 5th out of 14 teams and 3 boys medalled. Don’t forget to go support the team as their race in another invitational on September 16th in Norco.
Wolfpack men’s water polo beat Monte Vista last week with a score of 18-3. On Tuesday September 12, the team faced off against El Cap and won with a score of 13-2. The team will play Mount Miguel next week with our highest scorer Cody Breshears. The girls polo team is getting started with a tournament this Sunday and another tournament in Los Angeles soon!
With one of the star players Sara Willis on injured reserve, the women’s golf team has not been in the running for another league win. The team was doing great with five wins and two losses before the official season start. The team currently has three losses and no wins in the league season. Many of the girls have been shooting in the sixties which is unusual for the girls. Sierra Streit is still at her best shooting in the forties. Next week the team will be up against El Cap, which is so far undefeated, but I think our underdogs will come through with the win and with Willis returning next week things may be looking up.
