Bearcats dash past many different teams, gaining a crucial second place victory at an important meet

Cross Country has seen a great season so far, with many different players of all classes stepping up and putting in their part for the team. The Bearcats recently ran a meet at Woodward Park, placing second, and hope to demolish fellow rivals from Pioneer Valley and SLO in the remaining meets of the season. “We all have great chemistry together, we get along really well and always seem to be having so much fun when we’re running,” senior Joseph Martinez said. Martinez is currently in his fourth year of running cross country. “The season is going great and we’ve seen so much improvement with everyone, especially our sophomores and our freshmen. The future seems bright for the cross country team going forward.”


Football continues to rush through multiple wins, looking to tackle the rest of the season

Bearcat Football has already kicked off the season with a 4-2 record, with a 3-1 record in league. After a tough loss against a tough team to start, the Cats have bounced back and started a four game win streak. One of those wins included a win against one of the toughest teams in the league, the Lompoc Braves, giving the Braves their first loss of the season by a score of 34-33. Helping lead the team not only in that game, but also throughout the season is running back Leo Kemp, who is already averaging over 140.8 rushing yards per game. “What stands out to me a lot is our ability to work as a team,” Kemp said. “I mean, the morality and bond this team has is a lot different than a lot of other teams. It’s not just individual, but rather the team plays really well as a whole.”

Bearcats look to place high in league, multiple Cats going to finish with career best scores

Bearcat Golf has been going strong so far in the season, and is currently placed 4th out of seven teams in their league. So far the cats have played in five tournaments, with each player putting up some of their best numbers in their individual careers. One of the Cats, senior Kaci Wagner, is on track to have one of the best scores out of all the players in the league this season. “So far this season has been going pretty well,” Wagner said, who has been on varsity for four years. “Every match brings new challenges, weather, course difficulty, and energy, and navigating those challenges is one of the great parts of golf. I love the sport and the team so much that I really am just looking forward to getting to play.”


Bearcat’s ace season so far, currently placed 4th in League

Bearcat Tennis is currently on a 9-9 record overall on their season, with a 4-4 record in league. With that, they currently are placed 4th in league on the season. The Cats have played against tough rivals, including Templeton, who they have battled twice so far. “This season has been a fantastic learning experience,” senior Tegan Henretty said. “We have performed admirably and defeated teams against all odds. We always value having a positive attitude, especially on the court. We have developed a sense of community as a result of the time spent together.”

Volleyball sets up for a difficult season, hopes to get back a winning record in League

Girls’ Volleyball has been back and forth this season so far. Bouncing between wins and losses, the cats currently stand with a 15-16 record. Their league record stands at a similar record, with the Bearcats running a 4-5 record in league, placing them in 5th. With five more league games left to go, they hope to bring that record up to 9-5. Out of those final league games, two will be played at home, on Oct. 12 and 18. The Cats hope to take home the win against those two teams, both of which they have beat before in previous league matchups.


Bearcat Water Polo makes a splash in the season, holding third in league going into October

Bearcat Boys Water Polo has had a strong splash, starting the season with three straight league wins. Over the course of 17 total games played so far in the season, the boys have totalled up an 10-7 record. The Cats are currently placed 3rd in league going into October, and the team is looking to hold and secure that position going into the final few games of the season. “So far I think it’s been a great season,” team captain Michael Brown said. “We have a pretty solid team this year. We have a lot of shooters, as well as a team of just overall great players.”

Girls’ Water Polo comes first in tournament, hopes to carry that momentum through rest of season

Stroke after stroke, dribbling down the pool, passing to create a shot, and scoring the goal, girls water polo has had a solid season. Their record is currently 12-6 overall, while battling in league with a 4-4 league record. Having played in many out of town tournaments against tough competition, the girls feel “strong momentum going into the end of the season after a first place finish at the Central High School tournament,” sophomore Summer Colegrove said. Colegrove has been player of the game twice this season for Paso once against Righetti and once against Madera South. As a sophomore, Colegrove has stepped up and helped lead the team to their 11 wins. With the season closing to an end the girls will look to win their next three games to secure a spot in a playoff run.
