Centurion athletic teams were very successful this fall.

Girl’s Tennis finished the year with a record of 19 wins and 3 losses and tied for League champions, beating Valencia twice and splitting with Crean Lutheran, the other league champions. Some of the most improved players this season were Leyna Delrio-Pham and Jazlynn Eberhart, the girls’ tennis team’s coach, Joseph Paul said, “ This season has been a very enjoyable year, I enjoyed how excited they are to play and their desire to win.” 

Boy’s water polo had a couple of ups and downs this season, starting the season off with a win against California High with 13-3. The team continued their winning streak in the next two games against Buena Park, and Fountain Valley High with the scores 15-14 and 11-5. Cypress suffered their first loss against Esperanza High and El Toro High School but kept pushing and gained a win against Buena Park High with a score of 16-14. The lows continued though with the team losing the next four games, but ended the season winning the next two games against Centennial 8-7, and Kennedy High 17-7.

One of Cypress’s hardest-working teams this season has been the cross-country team. Being a relatively younger team with only three seniors. They accomplished a lot this season and set themselves up for future success. The team qualified for the CIF and prelims, but Coach Matthew Tweed said, “We felt we were going to finish first or second, so to finish third was a little disappointing.” The training was a little different from recent years with summer practice increased mileage and a higher tempo. Coach Tweed says the athletes have improved a lot and the ones that stepped up the most from the boys’ side were Jonathan Rodriguez, Eliot Yi, and McCovey Jackson, and on the girls’ side Erin Baek, Alexis Higa, and Stephanie Payne. 

The Girl’s golf team had a very successful season this year with a record of 7 wins and 1 loss. Tania Maheshwari, Brooke Sato, and Katherine Gerbing Advanced to the CIF individual championship. Ms. Metry said, “The season was great, we had a lot of success, we also have a very young team so I know we are going to build upon our success from this season and take it to next year. The morale and excitement the girls showed is always really fun to see, we had a great season and will miss Katherine a lot, but look forward to next year.”

The Cypress Girls volleyball team has gone 3-3 so far this season. Earlier this year, the team had the opportunity to tour the University of Hawaii, Hilo. On September 12, 2023, the team won against Pacifica High School with a score of 2-0. The team also defeated Tustin 3-0 on September 26th. Coach Alex Griffiths pushes her athletes to the limits on and off the court. They have a great sense of drive which makes them unique from other schools. They bounce back really quickly from any setbacks.

The Cypress football team suffered lots of injuries, yet they pushed on beating La Mirada (28-0) El Modena (31-14), and Pacifica (56-7). The team lost against Corona del Mar (24-41), Lawndale (0-14), and Tesoro (14-31), making their record 3 for 3.

Cypress’s first-ever Girls Flag Football team debuted this year. Although they didn’t have the best start losing to El Toro High School with a score of 0-6, their recent victories against Tesoro High (13-0) and Pacifica High (14-0) showed immediate improvement coached by Danny Kruger.
