Last weekend the baseball teams hosted a double header with LA Cathedral and took both games. The Dawgs found multiple ways to score and play consistent defense. They look toward another strong season.
Boys Tennis hosted Yuciapa for it’s first match of the season. The team played a little short handed due to some of the players are still participating in Mock Trial which should be wrapped up this weekend. Still, the boys pulled off a convicing win and handled the Thunderbirds 11-7. They also got in a second match with Jurupa Valley in some very windy conditions and came out on top 10-8 and are now 2-0 for the season.
Track and Field is off to a fast start despite running, throwing, jumping and hurdling without a full team. Many athletes had not completed their paperwork for Coach Summers and rules are rules, so many could not compete at the first home meet of the year as we hosted Sherman Indian HS, Indio HS, and Patriot HS. Hemet dominated the girls events by earning 157 point, compared to the next closest, Indio with 31. The boys ran away with a solid effort scoring 91 to Jurupa Valley 68, Indio 56 and Sherman Indian 11.
Softball has only had an away tournament in Corona and the girls are still finding their groove. The first day they split two games as they are still working on position players to fill in the defense and work on their base running and offense. Once the girls put things together, they should be a strong contender for the league crown again this year.
Boys Volleyball got off to an easy start playing a relatively new school, Nuview Bridge from Nuevo. The boys travel to and won convincingly, which gave new Coach Bob Jensen a chance to look at all the players to see how they would fit into his rotation and his high expectations. In the third game, Hemet scored the first 18 point, mostly on good serves and poor receives by the hosts.
Swim and Golf also got into action this week.
With so many sporting events happening this spring, you have no reason not to come out and support a team. The teams playing now are: Baseball, Softball, Boys and Girls Track and Field, Boys and Girls Swim, Boys Tennis, Boys Volleyball, and Boys Golf.
