May 13, 2021
Moving from the Ocean League to the more competitive Bay League has been a challenge for some of the athletic teams this year. Football, boys' basketball, boys and girls track and field and softball have proved to be some of the top teams in the league but other teams have struggled.
The football team finished their season several weeks ago with a 4-1 overall record and a 4-0 league record which was good enough for first place. The boys' basketball team currently has a 7-3 overall record and a 6-1 first place league record and the girls' softball team is 9-4 overall and 2-2 in league play which is good enough for third place. The girls track and field team is 3-0 and the boys are 2-1.
The teams that are trying to stay even and the teams that have fallen below .500 in the Bay League play are baseball, boys' soccer, girls' soccer and girls' basketball.
