Athletics Program

In soccer this week, Mayfield dominated from whistle to whistle

With the current COVID-19 surge in our area, it was a quiet week for the Cubs athletes. The only two games were on the soccer field against Pasadena Poly, and Mayfield saw great success there! On Tuesday, the JV team hosted Poly on the brand new turf at Occidental College—the first game ever on the new field. Mayfield dominated from whistle to whistle in defeating the Panthers 8-0. The Cubs JV team is now 8-0 on the season and 2-0 in the Prep League. Then yesterday, it was Varsity's turn to take on the Panthers. Once again, it was all Mayfield, as the Cubs led 5-0 at the half and won the game, 6-2, to improve to 8-1 overall and 1-0 in league. The #3 ranked Cubs had a historically good day vs. the Panthers. The six goals were the teams most ever scored against Poly, and five different players scored goals!
The only other competition this week is our equestrian team, who will compete in their 3rd IEL show of the year this Sunday at Hansen Dam in Sylmar. All of our other competitions this week were postponed, but the Cubs have a full calendar of games on tap for next week. Please keep an eye on the Mayfield Athletics calendar as games are constantly being moved around and rescheduled.
It seems crazy to think about, but our spring sports (badminton, softball, swim/dive, and track/field) are all making plans to start workouts in the coming weeks. Next week, we have a track/field information meeting on Tuesday at lunch, and swim/dive will be meeting on Wednesday at lunch. Both badminton and softball sent out Google interest forms to the student body this week. Make sure to sign the Google form if you are planning on playing badminton or softball this year. And please note: official tryouts for all of our four spring sports are the week of February 7-11.
Have a great MLK weekend and GO CUBS!
