The boys soccer team had a hard time on the road at Colusa High School. Athlete Grayson Roberts said, “we did not play our best or up to our usual standards.” Coach Fernando Cervantes added, “it was a game we can learn from and where we need to improve.” After the defeat at Colusa, the boys earned a much needed victory in the game against Esparto. Roberts scored the first two goals in the first half, and Finn Roegers locked in the win with the third goal in the second half. At Colusa the girls soccer team locked out the Red Hawks by dominating the field, shooting seven goals and not allowing any goals scored against them.

In five matches Ceja went 2-3 taking sixth place in the 150-pound weight class. She relearned to move quick, and to sit out to get out. The boys traveled to Lincoln for the Mark Fuller Invitational where junior Joe Southwood and freshman Ethan Demment competed in their first varsity meet. Southwood wrestled in the 220-pound weight class going 0-2. He said he learned that perseverance in the hard times of wrestling is key. Coach Andy Gomez said that with more time on the mat Southwood and Demment will get it, and they fought hard in their matches. Demment had a strong start to his high school wrestling career. In the 195-pound weight class he went 2-2. Gomez said Demment quickly learned that high school wrestling is more competitive than he thought. “It is great to be a freshman that did so well in a varsity match,” said Gomez. “He had good control and was aggressive.”]]>
