CHS sports prepares to enter league competition

Strong defense has CHS boys basketball riding hot streak

The Claremont boys basketball team is heading into the new year with a record of 10-4, having won their last seven games dating back to Decmber 19. Seniors Chris Edward and Omar Mahmoud have each played a significant role in the Wolfpack’s hot start. Edward leads the team with 17.1 PPG, with Mahmoud averaging 12.4 PPG. As a team, the Pack is shooting nearly 50 percent from the field and is averaging 63.3 PPG. Their defense, as it has been all season long, has been playing lights out, averaging 7.4 steals per game and 29.1 rebounds per contest. Claremont will travel to Alta Loma tomorrow to take on the Alta Loma Braves.

 

Trio continue to star for girls basketball

The Claremont girls basketball team sits at 9-4 near the midway point of the season.

A big part of their early success has been the play of seniors Danna Robles, Jessica Abrolat and junior Katie Porter, who combine to average 27 points per contest, more than half of the team’s total average of 47.2. After a two-week hiatus, the Pack will take the court on January 15 against Ayala in their first league match of the season.

 

Girls soccer game rises for league play

The Wolfpack is preparing to kick-off the second half of their schedule on Jan. 15 after going 10-4-2 in their first 16 contests.  The Pack has been on a roll as of late, winning 7 of their last 9 games, and could not have gotten hotter at a better time, with league action set to kick off in just a few weeks. Claremont is averaging 1.9 goals per game, with opponents only averaging only 1.1. Goalie play has been huge for Claremont thus far, with sophomore Sydney Fortson and senior Drew Williams combining for 55 saves and seven shutouts in 16 games. The Pack will travel to Ayala on January 15 for their first league match of the season.

 

Boys soccer prepare for tough part of schedule

The Claremont boy soccer team sits with a 7-3-2 record as they prepare to take on the second-half of their schedule, which is loaded with league matches. The Pack finished the first-half of their schedule with a record of 5-1-1 and hopes to carry that success over to their next stretch of stiff competition, which includes South Hills, Damien and Chino Hills. The Wolfpack is netting nearly two goals for every one goal the opponent scores, outscoring their opponents 31-15. Claremont will kick-off Sierra League play on January 17 against South Hills at home.
