Their season started positively with a round-robin style tournament up in Irvine. The team was able to play a huge group of different schools. Varsity player, junior Ryan Phillips said, “ It was a great bonding experience for all of us, especially for the new kids on varsity.” This spirit was continued throughout the season with their big wins as a team. They finished the season undefeated in their league.

After winning the Western League, the team qualified for Open Division in CIF. They had previously won CIF last year while playing in Division 1. Varsity player, sophomore Carson Kellogg said, “Our goal for the season would be to win CIF again this year.” Unfortunately, the team lost to Bishops during the first round of CIF.
