On Wednesday Oct 13, the Winters High School cross-country squad headed to Hamilton High School for competition. Before the junior varsity team was 1.95 miles and the varsity contended with 2.93.
Although WHS doesn’t have enough runners to be an official team, that didn’t stop the Warriors from showing the league what they’re made of.
“We had many remarkable personal improvements. Both Diego Rodriguez and Wesley Coker improved their three mile times by over a minute,” said head coach DWilliam Davis. “Ruby Campos and Celeste Reyes both improved their two mile times by over a minute which is very difficult to do.”
On Tuesday, Oct. 12, the WHS volleyball teams hosted Pierce High School. The Bears proved to be ferocious adversaries as the junior varsity team lost two sets to none. Meanwhile, the varsity squad took the Bears to five sets, Pierce would edge the Warriors and win three sets to two.
“Even though we lost, the girls are awesome. This is one of the best JV teams in a long time. We’re mostly freshmen and are great athletes,” said head coach Lucy MacMahon. “Jordan Tucker is an amazing player that hits left and right-handed. She’s improved immensely over the year.”
On Thursday, Oct. 14, the varsity squad headed up to Paradise to face the Paradise Bobcats. Again, the Warriors pushed the match to five sets. Unfortunately, the Bobcats scratched out a win and take the match three sets to two.
“The girls fought until the end, but unfortunately we came up short,” said MacMahon. “I have a great group of girls and they’re strong hitters. That’s good in games because several girls will always be dominating.”
