Spring Season Recap

YLHS Track&Field
Some of our amazing spring athletes who have committed to continue their academic and athletic journey at a collegiate level: Nicole Slack, Sarina Patel, Mason Farley, Jason Escovar, Tyson Woods, Deiter Williams, and Tara Savage.

As the school year ends, so do our spring sports. Our athletes at YLHS have worked nonstop, and it has really paid off. Congratulations to all of our athletes here at Yorba Linda! Let’s look at all of our spring sports: baseball, softball, swim, lacrosse, men’s golf, men’s tennis, men’s volleyball, and track.

Our amazing baseball team has always been known for its skills on the field. This season, they faced a lot of adversity with a tough schedule. Nevertheless, the team overcame its challenges and went 7-2 in the North Hills league. The Mustangs continued on in CIF but sadly fell short to Arcadia High School in the second round. We are still so proud of this team, and they will have an even better comeback next season!

On the other side of the field is our softball team! These players are well-rounded and have an amazing IQ when playing. With amazing performances from the whole team, the Mustangs placed 2nd in the North Hills League.  Brooke Boyd and Liliya Cartledge were named 2nd Team All-League, while Madalyn Martin and Kendra Gominsky earned 1st Team All-League. The girls got a tough match against Sante Fe High School in the first round and sadly lost. Their hard work has not gone unnoticed, so let’s give a huge congrats to the team!

By the pool deck, Yorba Linda’s Men’s Swim team has fought vigorously. The whole team hit their own great accomplishments this year. Congratulations to Carter Russel, Graham Searfus, and Aiden Taylor for making CIF individuals. What a great season for the whole team!

The girls’ swim team is also treading the water! Fara Ebrahimi (11) described the season as “a challenging year that allowed [the team] to learn and persevere.” Despite these difficulties, the girls continued to hit big marks. Abby Phan and Cynthia Lan continued to make it to CIF individuals. Congratulations to this talented group of girls!

[It was] a challenging year that allowed [the team] to learn and persevere.

Let’s give some more appreciation to our Yorba Linda Men’s Lacrosse team! This team has shown impeccable skills on the field. The Mustangs managed to clinch second place in the North Hills league, which got them into CIF. In the first round, they were eliminated by Huntington Beach High School. Nonetheless, they still deserve a huge congratulations on an amazing season!

It’s also important to acknowledge our women’s lacrosse team. They showed a lot of potential last season and definitely proved themselves this year. The Lady Mustangs battled on the field; however, they fell short in a tough Crestview league and placed third. Due to their great record, they were able to manage a spot in CIF, where they lost in a tough battle to Royal High School. We are so proud of this team this year; congratulations!

We also have our Men’s Golf Team at Yorba Linda; they hit some big marks this year! This team is filled with talented young men who keep their composure while playing. Despite any setbacks or tough matches, they continued to battle. The team took second in the league, qualifying them for CIF. Sadly, they lost in the first round at Los Serranos. Huge congratulations on an amazing season!

Our school has an amazing tennis program and our Men’s Tennis team proved that they are worth the hype this year. As a D1 team, they had some tough matches but managed to pull out some big wins. With an amazing performance from UCI commit Mason Bui, he was able to reach to the semi-finals of CIF. Additionally, the team matched up against a talented Sage Hill team in the first round of CIF, where they sadly lost. We are so proud of all the hard work this team has put in!

Inside the gym, we have the Yorba Linda Men’s Volleyball Team! They are a talented team with lots of new talent. The team had a rough start to the season,  but quickly picked it up as their dynamic began to grow. The Mustangs took 3rd place in their league but still earned a spot in CIF. They won their first game against Temescal Canyon High School but unfortunately lost the next round against Polytechnic High School. Congratulations on a great season boys!

Last but not least, our track team made some huge steps to success! With a range of events from the 100m to pole vault, this team is filled with numerous talented athletes. With new school records being set, these athletes meant business. Freshman Isabella Wroblewski turned heads when she hit a new PR and marked a school record in the 3200m with a time of 11:08.53. Additionally, these athletes showed all-around great discipline on the track. Chapman University commit Mason Farley made a name for Yorba Linda after making it all the way to the semi-finals in CIF individuals. 

As the spring sports come to a close, our athletes have earned a well-deserved break. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for these talented individuals. We appreciate all our spring athletes’ hard work in representing Yorba Linda!
