Boys Soccer

(EMILY WRIGHT / EYE OF THE TIGER)

This year’s boys soccer team is off to a 3-3 start. Led by captain Austin Wehner, who committed to play at San Diego State University,Wehner leads the team in goals scored this season with four goals out of the team’s seven goals, and was the teams top scorer last year as well.

Junior captain Tobias Metten leads the team in assists with two thus far in the season. Along with Wehner and Metten, senior Cameron Fletcher helps lead the team as a captain. With only three seniors, Wehner, Fletcher, and Kyle Barnes, the team is a particularly young team and has room for growth in future years.

Their three wins this year came from Lincoln, Vista Del Lago and Rocklin, but picked up losses to Del Oro, Whitney and Woodcreek.

Ranked 78 in the section, the varsity girls basketball team is currently sitting at a record of 3-4.

So far the team has only competed in presason tournaments, including the Cartwright Classic, the Roseville Elite Showcase, and the Warren Meyer Varsity Tournament.

The top three scorers are Madi Law at 13.7 points per game, Alyssa Sandle at 12 points per game and Jordyn Hilliard at 9.2 points per game, with the team averaging 56 points per game, and putting up 336 points overall.

The team suffered four losses in both tournaments, yet also came out victorious against Bella Vista, Davis and Armijo.

Wrestling

The 2018-19 wrestling team is off to a hot start with a 3-0 record in dual meets this season.

Despite a lack of seniors this season, the younger wrestlers have stepped up their game, including sophomores Cole Babbini and Josh Provins.

The wrestling team has wrestled in two tournaments this year, being the Vista Invite, and the Fuller Invitational — both difficult invitationals.

The Vista Invite is a very competitive tournament right at the start of the season, because it features Selma high school, the fifth ranked team in the state, and Del Oro, the twelfth.

Despite their challenging opponents, RHS Tigers finished in fifth out of a total of 31 teams in the Invite.

Coach Doug Ash anticipates a good year.

“If we stay healthy, this could be Roseville’s best ‘team’ in 20 or 30 years,” Ash said. “And we only have three seniors in the lineup.”
