Spring Sports Starting
It is the busiest time of the year for high school sports in California, between winter sports wrapping up and spring sports going into full swing. From baseball to the ever-growing world of lacrosse. From softball to the flurry of track and field. From both gyms to the pool at Chabot, the Moreau Catholic Mariners are active everywhere on campus and off!
We blessed our Winter Sports Senior Athletes at our Unity Rally on Tuesday (pictured above) as they prepare to celebrate their senior nights this week at their last home games of their Moreau Catholic careers. Meanwhile, everywhere you look, there seems to be a practice of some sort going on. But something new accompanies the spring season—the sense of anticipation.
The Mariners are looking to dominate in the MVAL as the returning NCS Badminton Champions are looking for a repeat, Baseball is on the quest for their three-peat as MVAL champions, and Boys' Volleyball is looking to claim their NCS Division title. With the largest number of student-athletes to date participating in spring sports, teams are preparing to be successful in every aspect.
The Lacrosse program started in 2020 in the midst of Covid, and their teams have now expanded to the point where JV programs may be created due to numbers. Track and Field had 140 students signed up with 100 starting on day one of this season. Mission Hills Golf Course will be swarmed by the Boys' Golf team with their record-breaking number of 23 student-athletes!
On the rise are the Softball and Boys' Tennis teams. Small but mighty, the teams are looking to make an impact despite their limited numbers.
Making waves in the pool, the Moreau Catholic Swim team is practicing at Chabot College for the first time and is led by alumnus Kaleo Lee ’18.
Between the nine spring sports, the Mariners have all come together to work toward a successful season. It promises to be a wonderful environment for our student-athletes this spring.
