Friday, October 24th, our Stallion Football Team faced Bullard High School in our Go Pink game but unfortunately came out with a loss of 7-54. Coach Johnson says, “Positives, obviously, was the way we started, going up right out the gate getting the lead early in the game and playing one-quarter football. First Quarter, that was a big positive, we played for a quarter.” It was the team’s Senior Night, which Coach Johnson speaks on while also mentioning the team’s lack of support through this game for our Seniors, “The Seniors, well it was their night, it was Senior Night, so it’s always very troubling and hurtful when something like that happens where we just can’t do the deal. But the bottom line is for those Seniors, they are playing against a true Division 1 football team, we’re division 4. Clearly, we’re not up to that task right now, that’s something we can talk about in the future, but right now we send our Seniors out, we’re proud of them, and wish we could’ve gotten them a win but, we’re not ready for this big-time football yet.” When asked if any strategic moves surprised the team tonight Coach responds, “No, they ran the football very hard and they blocked well. They ran the football, that’s what they do.” Our Football players will be facing Edison High School Friday, October 27th away at 7:30PM and hope to come out just as strong, but finish the game hard and playing as one unit. Good luck to our team, go play unified and be tough!
Tuesday, October 24th our Lady Volleyball players went head to head vs San Joaquin Memorial and competed amazingly but came out with a loss of 2-3. Our girls played strong and focused on the little aspects of the game while also playing loose as one team. We hope to see our Volleyball team carry on this wonderful energy to their match up Thursday, October 26th at MHS. Go kick some butt ladies! Play hard and go get those kills!
Our Water Polo teams also faced San Joaquin Memorial and had some amazing match-ups, with our Boys finishing with a loss of 5-17 and our Girls team finishing with a win of 4-3! Amazing job Ladies and Gentlemen. The girls hope to carry over their intensity and hard work to their next game Thursday, October 26th at MHS, while the Boys are excited to face the team again and show that we are a tough squad and can compete with any team out there. Good luck to our Water Polo teams. Go get those goals!
