Bodega Bay. The chemistry built there helped to maintain team unity on and off the court. Season highlights
included big upsets to league rivals Convent and Lick-Wilmerding. The future of Jaguar Volleyball is bright!
Throughout the winter season, basketballs could be
heard bouncing from 6:30am to 9pm over in the Jag
Den and on the outdoor basketball courts. This year the
5-12th grade basketball program had 124 participants, a
slight dip from last year, though the effort and intensity
displayed by all of our teams was excellent.
In the winter, the 6-8th grade girls Varsity and JV teams
fought hard in every game, but fell short of clinching a
playoff position this year. Two of our five Boys on the
5-8th grade basketball teams captured CYO Championships, Boys Varsity Red and Boys JV. The Boys and Girls
look forward to working hard in the off season and coming back next year stronger than ever.
The high school basketball programs had a very competitive start to the preseason, and both the Men’s and
Women’s Varsity teams played well in holiday tournaments. The BCL-West has several of the top Division V
programs in the North Coast Section, and while the Jags
did not experience the results they desired, their hustle
and effort were respected by all opponents.
Both programs will return the majority of their rosters,
and with the steady improvement from the Men’s JV and
Varsity teams, our athletes should be contenders for their
first league victory next year.
The high school tennis program has experienced a
resurgence in participation this year, making it possible
for the Men’s program to have a JV team. The Men’s Tennis program is off to one of its best starts in recent years.
Currently, the team is 3-1 in league and vying for their
first league championship.
The Women’s Tennis team also experienced growth
this season, which will probably lead to a JV team being
offered next year for the first time in school history. With
a great attitude and strong work ethic, the girls earned
a 5th seed in playoffs. They ultimately fell to Urban in a
hard-fought battle, but made it to the North Coast Section playoffs for the first time in school history.
Sailing is the newest sport to join the roster of International High School’s competitive athletics teams. This
past season our team’s regattas showcased our new and
experienced sailors, who proved they can compete with
some of the best teams in Northern California. Our team
is taking NorCal sailing by storm, and is currently ranked
in the top 10 as the Jags continue to make their presence
known on the water.
