Women’s Water Polo
By Olivia Busch
After their win against Bear River last week, the women’s water polo team continued the league season with a home game against Rio Americano Tuesday night. With two early goals in the first quarter by seniors Olivia Busch ’18 and Maddie Mercer ’18, the girls were off to a strong start. The Lady Falcons could not keep up with the Raiders in the second quarter, letting them score four unanswered goals to end the half at 6-2. The girls were not willing to give up working hard throughout the second half. They were able to score three more times, but it was not enough to win with a final score of 8-5 in favor of Rio. Our women’s team is looking to recover from this loss when they travel to Mira Loma next Tuesday

The Women’s Cross Country team had a “glorious” meet, as Coach Copley had stated, Saturday morning at the Pacific Tiger meet in Stockton. The varsity women’s team laced up to run the first race of the day at 8:30 A.M. Our varsity girls pushed each other from the start to the finish of the 5K course. Aileen Fortin (‘18) started off her birthday week by running the race with the time of 20:46.4, putting her 16 seconds behind CB leader Amelia Poroli (‘18), who also ran the best 5K time out of her four years at CB. Emma Roberts (‘18) and Kayla Piegaro (‘20) raced with intensity and full heart. Our Varsity team placed 14th out of 32 and frosh/soph placed 6th out of 12. As the team continues to become stronger each week, the girls hope to stay in the top 50% of finishers each week. Our Varsity boys dominated the course last Saturday, finishing second as a team. Patrick Wiseman (‘18) led the boys to the finish line with the time of 16:10, finishing 8/325. Nevin Afong (‘19) came up very quick behind putting him 11/325 finishing with a the time of 16:15. The men pushed their hardest in the race but came up short of first place overall. Our Men’s JV team finished 3rd this past weekend giving them energy to move forward onto the next meet at Haggin Oaks this Saturday.
