Former Claremont resident Sydney Fortson, a sophomore at the United States Naval Academy, has been named to the 2017 Women’s Soccer Academic All-Patriot League Team.
A 2016 graduate of Claremont High School, Fortson played goalkeeper for the Pack when CHS made it to the second round of the CIF tournament, where Fortson had a shutout. Unfortunately, the Pack lost to San Luis Obispo on penalty kicks.
Claremont cross country swept the Palomares League finals on Saturday at Legg Lake Park in South El Monte, winning both individual and team titles.
Claremont won team titles in the girls varsity, boys varsity, girls junior varsity, boys junior varsity and boys frosh/soph races.
It may be a worn out cliché, but it was déjà vu all over again for Claremont High School tennis on Wednesday in Claremont.
Last week the Pack tied Ayala on sets, so it came down to counting games, which gave the match to the Bulldogs.
Fast-forward to this week, and the Pack was once again tied on sets deep into the third round of the CIF Division III playoff against Tesoro.
Claremont cross-country swept the Palomares League finals on Saturday at Legg Lake Park in South El Monte winning individual and team titles across the board. Claremont won team titles in the girls varsity, boys varsity, girls junior varsity, boys junior varsity and boys frosh/soph races.
The drive that propels Claremont distance runner Sydney Hwang was on display Tuesday evening during the cross-country team’s evening workout.
Rather than run with the girls team—where she would be way out in front—Hwang ran with the boys, forcing her to chase, which makes her faster.
The dedication is paying off since Hwang, a junior, recently broke Annie Boos’ school record on the hilly three-mile Mt. Sac course.

It’s not 2015 anymore, when Claremont boys water polo seemed to win every game effortlessly.
Now the Pack has to work a little harder, which may be a good development. It certainly seemed so on Tuesday when Claremont narrowly defeated Glendora, 10-9, in Palomares League action at CHS.
The boys came out strong and built a sizeable lead, outscoring the Tartans, 4-1, with goals from Ryan Scott, Alex Stockwell, Ian Waasdorp and Mason Stark.
