With the 2018/2019 school year well underway, school sports are officially back. This year’s fall sports include Football, Water Polo, Girls Tennis, Cross Country, Girls Volleyball, Girls Golf, and Surf. Although the seasons are only beginning, many teams are already off to a promising start in their opening matches.
Morro Bay High School’s Football team faced off against Lindsey High School last Friday. Morro Bay was at severe disadvantage, playing with no home field advantage in 90 degree heat. Injuries sidelined many players on both the Varsity and JV teams. The games did not end as planned, as Morro Bay Varsity fell to Lindsey 46-0 and JV lost 28-6. Varsity falls to 0-3 on the season, while JV has managed a 1-2 record. On Friday, Morro Bay faced off against Gustine High School, which also ended disappointingly for Varsity with a 26-0 loss.
The Girls Water Polo team faced
Nipomo High School on a warm and sunny Wednesday. The JV team won against Nipomo High School ending the game with a score of 10-4. After being asked how she would describe the game Tru Forter from the JV team said, “Amazing because we won apparently against the best people in the league.”
In their first match of the regular season, The Morro Bay High School’s Girls Tennis team earned a 6-3 victory on September 4th. Unfortunately, they weren’t so successful during pre-season against San Luis High School and Clovis High School, but the team hopes to continue their victory streak at the California Tennis Classic Tournament, which took place over the weekend. Readers can learn more about one of the players on the Girls Tennis team, Sierra Redman, here.
The Cross Country team took part in the Big Ditch Invitational last weekend. Sadly, the Cross Country team did not win any of the competitions in the first meet, but they are confident that will change. The Morro Bay Invitational was last Saturday from 10:00 A.M to 1:00 P.M at Morro Bay High School.
Last week, the Morro Bay High School Girls Volleyball team found great success. In a game against Cabrillo High School on September 4th. The varsity team won three out of four games, earning them the victory. Later in the week, the JV team won third place in a tournament at Arroyo Grande High School. The team is hopeful to continue this winning spree when they face off against Nipomo High School on September 18th.
So far this year, the Morro Bay High School surf team has yet to participate in any competitions. Furthermore, the Girls Golf team could not be reached. Overall, however, Morro Bay High School’s sports teams are off to a great start, and our school should be proud to have them representing our school.
