Peninsula meet report:
Boys Varsity: MC 65 – 71 Pen
Girls Varsity: MC 77 – 59 Pen
Girls F/S: MC 73 – 63 Pen
Boys F/S: MC 77 – 59 Pen
Talk about a close meet! While Varsity & Frosh-soph girls and Frosh-soph boys were able to triumph over the strong Peninsula squad, it was a heart-breaking loss for the varsity boys, as Peninsula edged them by 6 points (that’s the equivalent of a second-place finish going the other way). That means that to win a shared piece of their 5th straight Bay League Title, they will have to beat Redondo next week and West Torrance the week after. The meet against Redondo should be one for the books, so make plans now to be there to root on our Mustangs (and work a Volunteer Shift while you’re at it — the last home meet of the season!)
Coming up this weekend — Mt. Sac & South Bay Championships
We will be sending 143 athletes (yes!) to West High (20401 Victor St, Torrance, CA 90503) over the weekend. (West is the closest of the Torrance schools — just a few blocks east of Redondo HS). The Frosh-Soph division competes today beginning at 4:30. Varsity competes on Saturday beginning at 5:30. Here are links to the schedule and the entry sheet. (On the performance list, just search for “Mira Costa” to get the listing for our athletes or scroll to page 18:
