FEB 26-MARCH 2

Girls soccer win advances team to championship

The Performance of the Week for the week of February, 26 is the varsity girls soccer team beating the Rocklin Thunder 1-0 in the Division II section semifinal. This kept their undefeated streak against the Thunder this season, as going into this game, the teams had only played once in preseason, where the Tigers came out with a successful victory. This was due to the goal from the Tigers’ leading scorer Mackenzie Gill scoring the goal in the last 10 minutes of the match. The victory meant they would move onto the section championship.

Junior Kylie Granno was excited to make it to the championship game and hoped that they could stay strong.

“After the Rocklin game we had a lot of confidence going into the finals,” Granno said. “We knew Rocklin was a strong team going in and the fact that we beat them proved we were a good team.”

Later, the team fell to the River City Raiders in the finals in a competitive 1-0 loss. However, they still qualified for regionals, in which they lost to the Livermore High School Cowboys in another competitive game.

 

March 5-9

Baseball goes 2-0 behind Berry’s impressive week

The Performance of the Week for the week of March 5 is Jordyn Berry, who lead the Tigers to a 2-0 week with wins over River Valley and Placer. Berry hit .625, well above league average, and also managed to record 3 RBI’s and hit a home run.

According to senior outfielder Brendan Guttman, this is the type of production that the team has come to expect from Berry.

“Obviously I don’t want to say that this is expected, but it kind of is,” Guttman said.

Berry and the Tigers will next take the field next Tuesday against the Heritage Patriots.

MARCH 12-16

Varsity softball moves to 5-1 record overall

The Performance of the Week for the week of March 12 is the varsity softball team, who went 2-0 against Folsom. The team defeated Folsom in both legs of a double header by a combined score of 15-0. The wins moved the Tigers to 5-1 overall, and continued their hot start.

According to senior second baseman Karli Dugger, the team’s balanced combination of good pitching, defense, and offense have allowed the Tigers to be as good as they are.

“We haven’t just been good at one thing,” Dugger said, “We have good fielding, really good hitting, and our pitching has been really good especially from some of the younger girls.”

The Tigers’ next game will be Wednesday against Antelope.
