Harker’s only upper school home contests in any sport this week are the water polo games the Eagles will host at the Singh Aquatic Center Thursday. The boys will be coming off of a 2-2 result at the Sobrato Tournament, in which they defeated both Lincoln and Sobrato. Meanwhile, the girls have had a tough season so far, with a 4-10 overall record and 1-5 league record despite never falling by more than three goals. Root for both on Thursday!
The girls dropped their match to state powerhouse Menlo last week, 6-1, with freshman Lizzie Schick earning the sole victory for the Eagles. The team will have plenty of opportunities the rebound this week, with three matches on the schedule.
The Eagles competed in the first WBAL cross country meet of the year last week, with senior Corey Gonzales leading the boys to a sixth-place finish and sophomore Niki Iyer leading the girls to a seventh-place finish. Gonzales and Iyer each finished second in the course, a hill-heavy stretch across 2.8 miles.
The girls varsity squad is now 4-7 after beating Notre Dame-San Jose last week. This Thursday, the team will head to Castilleja for a crucial league match.
The girls lost to a tough Castilleja squad last week but bounced back to defeat Mercy-Burlingame, giving the Eagles a 3-1-1 record.
