The girls tennis and golf teams both have .600 records or better, while two cross country runners ran their best runs ever at Woodward Park, and the football team plays under the lights this Friday! Here are all the results from the world of Harker sports last week:
At the prestigious Clovis Cross Country Invitational in Fresno on Saturday, both senior Corey Gonzales and sophomore Niki Iyer ran outstanding races to beat their previous best times at Woodward Park. The team will run in the secpnd league meet this Thursday at Baylands Park.
The girls lost a heartbreaker to Menlo last week, falling to their rival by a single stroke in a neck-and-neck 209-208 battle. They bounced back the next day, however, to crush Mercy-Burlingame by over 40 strokes, 221-264. Their record now stands at 4-2-1 overall. The team faces Sacred Heart on Friday.
The girls are now the proud owners of an 11-3 record after a 2-1 week in which they beat Crystal Springs and Gunderson while dropping a match to rival Sacred Heart Prep. They’ll look to improve their record as they take on Castilleja and Menlo this week.
Junior Doreene Kang had 11 kills as the girls beat Castilleja last week to bring their record to 5-7. They hit the road this week for two tough matches against Mercy-SF and Sacred Heart Prep.
Both the boys and girls varsity teams lost to Lynbrook last week, while the junior varsity boys pulled out a 9-8 victory. The teams play at home today against Fremont.
The Eagles are now 1-4 on the season after losing to San Lorenzo Valley on Saturday. Freshman Nate Kelly was a threat as a wide receiver and a running back, pulling down two passes for 27 yards in the first half and running for 26 yards on five carries in the second. Senior quarterback Keanu Forbes completed four passes out of 13 attempts for 48 yards in the first half, and sophomore running back Will Park ran for 45 yards on six carries. The team will play under the lights this Friday at Davis Field when they host CSD!
