Culver City high school spring athletic teams will once again leap into action during the next week. The boys' and girls' lacrosse teams, girls' softball, baseball, boys' volleyball and boys tennis will all continue to play at a high level but the highlight of the week will be the track and field teams competing in the prestigious Mustang Relays at Mira Costa high school on Saturday. The meet starts at 10 a.m.

The All-Day meet will feature some of the top track and field teams in Southern California. "We are excited to compete in the this meet because we were not able to run in the invitationals last year because of COVID," said boys track and field head coach Jahmal Wright. Culver City four track and field teams, boys and girl's frosh/soph and the girls and boys varsity will be competing.

Wright continued to talk about the Mustang Relays. "When you are at a meet where there will be 15 to 20 schools, it's a chance for us to showcase our abilities and to show what kind of team we have. We are at the midway point of the season so our coaching staff is curious to see how we will respond against stiff competition."

The girls head track and field coach, Rayfield Moses Beaton is also excited about competing in the Mustang Relays. "At the Mustang Relays I am looking forward to the girls continuing to perform at a high level. We have a young team of outstanding athletic girls, and I am very pleased with the fact that they have already surpassed what we did last year at this time."

The excitement never stops when it comes to Culver City sports because all the spring teams are very competitive. The girl's lacrosse team is ranked No. 3 in CIF Division 3, and their next games are against Downey, Friday at 5 p.m. on the road, Valencia at home on Monday at 5:30 p.m. and Lynwood on the road at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
