After seasons of teamwide growth and several new personal bests, all four 5C cross-country teams have a legitimate shot at the SCIAC title.
Based on the score at halftime Saturday, you wouldn’t have known the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps (9-2-1, 6-0-1 SCIAC) and Pomona-Pitzer (3-7-2, 2-4-1 SCIAC) men’s soccer teams had been duking it for 45 minutes. The score was still 0-0.
Three years ago, Amanda Martinez SC ’20 couldn’t even fill a full women’s rugby team. Now, she can barely squeeze the Claremont Foxes’ more than 30 members on the field for practice.
Though they’re a regular season juggernaut, postseason luck has been nothing short of nightmarish for the Sagehen women’s soccer team (7-0-1, 3-0 SCIAC) in recent years.
P-P volleyball (6-4, 0-0 SCIAC) lost an unlucky Friday the 13th game against UC Santa Cruz 3-1, but came back later that day to win 3-0 over Puget Sound.
