Tennis, volleyball, golf and cross country teams show strength and growth

It has been a quiet week on the Cubs calendar, but the highlight was the Cubs tennis matches with Westridge on Tuesday. In 2021, Mayfield, Pasadena Poly and Westridge finished in a three-way tie for the Prep League Championship before the Cubs went all the way to the CIF Division 3 Semifinals in the playoffs. The Cubs and Tigers played on Tuesday at Muir in a key match. The winner would have the inside track to repeat as league champions. With stellar play from Samantha Frick ’23 in singles (3-0 in her matches) and last week's Athletes of the Week, Sarah Leiva ’25 and Rory Rago ’24, went 2-1 in doubles, and the Cubs came away with a huge 11-7 win over the Tigers. Not to be outdone, the JV team also defeated Westridge in a thriller, 10-8. The loss was Westridge's first loss in JV tennis in league in over 15 years! Both teams now have the inside track to win Prep League titles next month!
The volleyball teams continued their dominance over the Prep League in 2022. All three teams swept Flintridge Prep on Tuesday to improve to 8-0 in league play. The Varsity squad is currently ranked #3 in the San Gabriel Valley and will take part in the Crescenta Valley tournament against some of the best teams in the area today and tomorrow. Then on Monday, the Cubs will host #1 ranked La Canada in one of the most highly anticipated matches of the season.
Golf continued their growing pains with a loss to defending league champion Westridge on Tuesday. However, six members of the JV team also competed against the Tigers in their 1st match of the season! The Cubs continue to improve dramatically with each week and match.
The cross country teams will run tomorrow in the Brentwood Small Schools Invite for their race this week. The Cubs have been training well for weeks and look forward to a great race tomorrow morning.
As you heard at Back To School Night last night, joining the Booster Club is a great way to help support our student-athletes. Make sure you make it out to a game and follow @msscubs on twitter for live updates. GO CUBS!
