CHS boys soccer notches two strong wins and more

Boys soccer had a blow-out victory over South Hills on Wednesday, winning 7-2 in front of an enthusiastic home crowd. CHS junior Jack Kolodge kicked a hat trick as well as one assist. Other top performances came from senior Justin Munevar with two goals, and junior Mato Pacheco and sophomore Osvaldo Lopez, who each scored once. Special recognition goes to Ibraheem Hafuda for his two assists.

The boys also defeated Glendora 2-0 in their away conference match last Friday. Kolodge and Munevar each had goals with assists from Steven Mancia and Dominic Luevano. Boys soccer now has a strong 10-1-4 record.

 

GIRLS SOCCER

Girls soccer had some mixed results, but played well according to Coach Tim Tracey. “We just need to finish our chances and not go down early in the game, thus making us chase the match,” he said.

The girls beat South Hills 2-1 on Wednesday in West Covina. Senior Ryley Settles and sophomore Mackenzie Boulware each scored once, both assisted by junior Karsyn Jordan.

Last Friday, they played to a 1-1 tie with Glendora at Claremont. Sophomore Katie Weaver scored in the second half with an assist from Settles. Girls soccer now has a solid 11-6-3 record.

 

BOYS BASKETBALL

After several disappointing results, boys basketball ran over South Hills on Wednesday, winning 75-51 in West Covina. A pair of sophomores led the scoring for the Pack, resulting in an amazing 25 points from Kyle Scalmanini—including four three-pointers—followed by an impressive 14 points from Tyler Risher. Senior Angelo Sandoval chipped in with 10 points while sophomore Davis Haley had eight and junior Nakia Harris-Neal had seven.

The boys also beat Gardena in tournament play over the weekend by a score of 60-45. The Pack was behind by four at the half but rallied, outscoring Gardena by 19 points the rest of the way. Scalmanini once again had a blistering game with 22 points, including two three-pointers. Other top performances came from Sandoval with nine points and Harris-Neal with eight. Senior Quincy Hailes had five points, but chipped in with a team-high seven rebounds. The boys record is now 10-11.

 

GIRLS WATER POLO

Girls water polo had mixed results in tournament play losing to Saint Joseph, 9-3, but defeating Fountain Valley 12-1. The girls defeated Glendora in league play last Thursday by a score of 8-1. No individual stats were available. The Pack’s record is now 4-3 overall and 2-1 in conference play.

Last week, freshman Makenna Moore scored four times during the Pack’s game against Diamond Bar, one more than was reported.

 

WRESTLING

Wolfpack wrestling did not have a tournament last weekend, but held a Palomares League match against Glendora on Thursday at CHS. Results will be posted in the next edition. Their next league match will be South Hills at Claremont next Thursday, which will also be senior night. Girls wrestling is preparing for a tournament at Charter Oak on January 31.

Delia Marron took a fifth-place medal at the Bonita Girls Bearcat Tournament last weekend, not her sister Dina as was previously reported.

“Dina Marron was our first wrestler to make it to girls master’s last year. Delia is a junior and also Deborah is a freshman and both are wrestling for the girls this year,” according to Coach Gerald Escalante.
