Athletics Year in Review: Warriors Accomplish Great Things

It’s always fun to look back and see what our students have accomplished. 2016-2017 proved to be yet another outstanding year in Warrior Athletics.  Here are some of the highlights:

The boys football team won its 9th straight league title. Cade Henjum broke numerous team records on the way to being named to the Small Schools All-State 2nd Team.

Madison Stier earned 1st team All-League honors in cross country and qualified for the CIF preliminaries where she established a school record on the Riverside cross country course.

Our girls volleyball team won another league crown as Lily Dyer was named league Most Valuable Player.

Our girls soccer team, after a 5th place finish in league, went on an epic run reaching the CIF quarterfinals.  They went further than all teams that finished ahead of them in league!

Mej Carpentier set soccer team records for goals in a game, season and career and she has one year to go!  She was named league Player of the Year and was named All-CIF for her efforts.

The boys basketball team won its 5th straight league crown and had two players named All-County. Trey Smith made the 2nd team, while county leader in steals and assists, Jonah Tolmarie, was named to the 3rd team.

Freshman Max Mylett was league runner-up in boys golf and advanced to the CIF individual preliminaries.

The boys swim team was named CIF Academic Team Champions with a cumulative GPA of 3.78, topping all other schools with enrollments of less than 1500.

The girls swim team won its third straight 200 medley and 200 free relays at the Freelance Championships.  The girls are undefeated in both events since the inception of the meet.

Our boys volleyball team played in CIF Division I this season and finished the year ranked #9 in Orange County. Jon Minsberg was named league volleyball Player of the Year, Jacob Pelletier was named league Libero of the Year, and four Warriors received 1st Team All-League honors:  Bryce Laxson, Brody Schippa Gabe Schippa, and  George Dyer.
