Frosh/Soph Nab 2nd in Redondo JV Tournament
Both Costa JV and Frosh/Soph teams participated in the Redondo/Costa Molten JV Invitational Tournament on Saturday, September 11. At Mira Costa, the tournament opened with a moving performance of our national anthem on saxophone by Mira Costa sophomore Miles MaPhee in observance of the 20th Anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
Pool Play began at Redondo with the following teams from Cathedral Catholic (both JV and F/S), Marlborough, Marmount (both JV and F/S), Bishop Montgomery, Archer, Torrey Pines, Santa Monica West Torrance and Redondo. At Mira Costa, JV teams for South Torrance, Palos Verdes (JV and F/S), Harvard-Westlake and Mira Costa (both JV and F/S) battled.
The top 16 of 17 teams then continued on at Redondo for playoffs. Mira Costa JV advanced up to quarterfinals but lost in a close match to Palos Verdes JV 23-25. Mira Costa’s Frosh/Soph team advanced to the finals but came up short against Cathedral Catholic JV. Kudos to Costa’s Frosh/Soph team for holding their own and battling against a variety of competitive JV teams all tournament. Special mention to Junior Taylor Dunlap and Freshmen Devon Nucci and Giulia Contesini for being named to the All-Tournament Team!
