Cubs seem poised to compete for Prep League and CIF titles across the board

We are just a few weeks into the fall season and the Cubs seem poised to compete for Prep League and CIF titles across the board. The Varsity tennis team remained undefeated this week with a convincing 15-3 non-league win over Rosemead. The Cubs were led once again by the stellar singles trio of Samantha Frick ’23, Sheryl Cheng ’23 and Rebecca Leiva ’22, who went 9-0 in their matches against the Panthers. Varsity tennis is now 4-0 and will take on Immaculate Heart and Buckley before opening league play against defending champion Westridge on Sept. 23. The JV team is improving with each practice as well and picked up a 12-6 win over Rosemead to improve to 2-1.
Perhaps the most impressive program on campus so far has been the volleyball teams. All three levels are undefeated in Prep League play at 4-0, and the three teams combined have only lost one set so far in their league matches! The Cubs swept Poly at home on Tuesday and went down to Palos Verdes yesterday where they soundly defeated Chadwick. The Cubs will travel across town today to take on Poly for the second time this week in a matchup of the top two teams in the Prep League. The Cubs have not won in Scott Gymnasium on Poly's campus in five years, so hopefully that streak will come to an end at 3:45 p.m. today! After today, Frosh-Soph will compete against some of the best teams in our area tomorrow at the Crescenta Valley High School tournament. The Cubs are in a group with Buckley, Chaminade, and La Canada—the full schedule is posted on the Cubs Calendar.
 
Cross country kicked off their 2021 campaign last Friday afternoon/evening on a sweltering day at the Rose Bowl in the (ironically named!) Cool Breeze Invitational. The meet included some of the finest teams in southern California and our young Cubs team looked quite impressive in their debut. The Varsity team raced under the lights and placed 16th out of 43 schools in the Division 3/4/5 race, defeating league rivals Poly, Prep, Providence and Westridge in the race.  Cecilia Kvochak ’23 battled heat exhaustion but led the Cubs with a 43rd place finish out of 231 runners! The JV team placed 8th out of 28 teams in the Division 3/4/5 race. Monika Vargas ’25 was the Cubs top finisher in 39th place followed closely by Jaz Johnson ’25 in 43rd. Both teams are back at it tomorrow running in the Rosemead Invitational.
 
The Varsity golf team hosted a very talented Webb team on Tuesday and lost 241-283. However, the Cubs played without their number one player and the score of 283 was the team's lowest of the season—a sign that when Mayfield gets back to full strength, the Cubs will be a force in league play. Next week is a big week for the Cubs as they take on defending league champion Westridge at Brookside on Tuesday and a great Chadwick team on Wednesday at the Rolling Hills Golf Club.
 
The season is just getting exciting for all of our teams and our Cubs LOVE it when their fans come cheer them on—so check out our schedule and make it out to a game. And if you are looking for more ways to support our amazing student athletes you can donate to the Booster Club. As always, we appreciate your support and GO CUBS!
