On Tuesday, May 4th, the Costa Mesa High School Girls Varsity Soccer game ended with a 3-3 tie against their biggest competitors, Santa Ana High School. With a 5-0-4 overall standing, CMHS has kept their 1st place in the Orange Coast League, with one game against Saddleback High School to go.
With another win under their belt against Saddleback at home on Thursday, May 6th, CMHS will officially win League and carry on to the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) starting the week of May 17th.
The CMHS Girls JV Soccer won their league as well, beating the Santa Ana JV team 3-0 for their last game. With only 4 games to play, JV shut down almost all their opponents, with the exception of tying Estancia 1-1.
Along with the League Title, Varsity and JV has once again beat out city rivals Estancia to win Battle of the Bell (BOTB), with a 2-0 win (V), 1-0 win (JV) and a subsequent 1-1 tie for both.
For the 3rd year in a row, under head coach Jason Boyce, the Girls Soccer Program have placed 1st in league and solidified their place as a winning athletics team for CMHS.
“With one game left to go I'm glad that we are in the position that we're in in League. I’m very proud of us and our mentality of not wanting to lose. I'm very proud that we as a team and as a program... we're trying to change the culture. Traditionally, [we haven’t] had much success so I'm very proud of that resilience.” says Jason Boyce. “Let’s put our school on the map and give coaches a reason to come and say, ‘hey, have you heard about Costa Mesa High School?’ If we build it, they’ll come.”
“Let’s do something that hasn’t been done.”
