Only boys golf and baseball were in action during the break. The rest of Harker’s spring athletes are rested and ready to continue their seasons with a full slate of games this week.
Boys golf placed sixth out of 45 teams at the Champions Invitational in Indio over the break. This is considered to be perhaps the strongest high school tournament in the state. Avi Khemani, grade 11, was the highest Harker finisher. The boys have a busy week ahead, with matches Monday versus King’s Academy, Wednesday against rival Menlo and Thursday against Pinewood.
The Eagles baseball team traveled to CSU Monterey Bay over the break, but lost 9-2 to Trinity Christian. This week, the team hosts Del Mar on Thursday at 4 p.m. and Lincoln of San Francisco on Saturday at 11 a.m.
This Wednesday at 5:45 p.m. at Blackford, the boys volleyball team takes on Wilcox in an important league match. The team follows that up with another league match on Thursday at Santa Clara High.

Track and Field

Over the past few weeks, Rhys Edwards, grade 7, has joined the ranks of top young swimmers on the West Coast. A few weeks ago, Edwards competed in a Junior Olympics meet in San Ramon, swimming for his club, Santa Clara Swim Club, where he made the finals in all six of his races, finishing with a silver and bronze in two of the events.
Edwards then spent most of his spring break at the Far Western Championships in Pleasanton, where the best swimmers from California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, and Oregon, among others, competed. Out of seven events, Edwards made the finals in four! His 11-12 boys relay team also won two golds and two silvers, even breaking a Santa Clara Swim Club team record in the process. Great job Rhys!
