With having an early scrimmage win versus El Camino, the football team has been rolling over competition and looks to keep their momentum going into September with games against Brentwood, Nordhoff (Ojai), Thousand Oaks and Agoura. JV went 0-2 in that time with close losses to Buena and Calabasas.

The team lost to La Reina 2-3, Louisville (Woodland Hills) 1-3, Dos Pueblos 0-3, Camarillo 1-2, Royal 0-2 and Oaks Christian 0-3. The team got its first win of the season in a tournament match versus Knight (Palmdale) on Aug. 26. 

Girls’ Golf

The girl’s golf team has started off strong this year coming in second place out of 17 teams in the Lady Pirate Invitational and starting league competition with a bang with a 200-253 blowout versus Camarillo. Lily Huynh, Joanna Hong and Derica Chiu scored 35, 37 and 37 respectively in that matchup. The team hopes to keep that momentum going into many key league matchups this September.
