This week is the official start of the Winter sports season! Here is a quick overview of what our school has in store:
Girls Water Polo: Coming off of a quarterfinal playoff run last season, the girls look poised to keep their winning ways. The team returns 5 players from last year’s team and also has a strong younger class coming to join the Varsity. The team opens their season TODAY against La Habra at home.
Girls Wrestling: Well, what can we say… the Millikan girls wrestling team is dominant (Moore League Champs and several state qualifiers), and there is no obvious reason why they won’t be again.
Girls Basketball: The Lady Rams continue their pursuit of the elusive Moore League title again this year. The ladies finished 2nd again to Poly (who looks to be strong again), but Coach Morgan’s team was younger last year and is returning several players.
Girls Soccer: The girls soccer team’s hashtag is #believe… well, I think there may be good reason to believe the girls will have a good team this year. The Rams graduated only 8 seniors last year, leaving 17 returning players. This bodes well for the Rams given they were 2nd place to Wilson, whom they also tied last year. Millikan should be strong and capable of taking the Moore League crown.
Boys Soccer: Millikan is going to be challenged for the Moore League title this year. The Rams graduated several of the leagues best players, but still have more in the tank. Wilson has etched up to the Division 1 level this season, and will try and swipe the Moore League trophy from the Rams.
Boys Basketball: After a coaching change in the off season, and coming off a disappointing season last year, the boys are hungry for some wins. With some key additions this year, the Rams could be the upstart that sets the Moore League ablaze.
Boys Wrestling: The boys wrestling team always seems to find athletes who show up and crush their opponents. The Rams graduated several of their best wrestlers last year, but their younger wrestlers performed well last season. The boys shouldn’t miss a beat and will hopefully keep the streak of Moore League championships in place.
