Updates on Spring Sports

It’s spring time and spring sports: baseball, golf, lacrosse, and track and field are in the middle of their seasons. Boy’s Lacrosse has started off the season well with a record of 4-2 and are looking ahead to a possible NCS tournament spot. This would be an amazing accomplishment for a team that went just 3-13 last season. Led by Coach Andrew Kolasa, the Knights have already amassed their win total from last season just 6 games into their young season. 

Baseball has gotten off to a hot start, starting the year undefeated holding an 8-0 record. Las Lomas is looking to get a top seed in NCS and perhaps even win the tournament. Jack McCullar and Dylan Graham are two seniors who are leading the Knights on the offensive side, while the Knights are also getting strong pitching from Josh Gregson. 

Track and field has many different events like the 100 meter, one mile, pole vault, and discus. In the 100 meter, Mehdi Aziz has had a stellar start to the year running a 12.37 a at the 6th annual Hart Invitational. Charlie Kislyia and Cooper Wise both are running the 1600 (or the mile), and have both been around 5 minutes with Charlie running a 4:44 and Cooper running a 5 flat. Ameerah Hameed ran a 12.87a and Sophia Pardo ran a 13.44a in the women’s 100 meters. Track has had a wonderful start to their season and look to keep it up at their next meet at the Stanford Invitational. The Tennis team is led by Matteo Rojas, Siddarth Sandhu, and Andre Grenville. The Knights currently hold a 1-2 record and are looking to get back to 500 with a game against Acalanes on Thursday.

The golf team like baseball, has also started undefeated and are currently holding a 6-0 record with notable wins coming against Acalanes and Campolindo. Jake Cox and Eric Kwak have both played very well to start the year. Cox shot a 72 at meadow club which was good enough to help Las Lomas finish 2nd out of 23 teams. Even with Princeton golfer Max Holm graduating, the Knights have been able to stay dominant and keep winning on the course. All of these programs are entering the midpoint to their season and are trying to end it strong. Baseball is looking to make a deep NCS run as well as Golf, and Track and Field is looking to keep finishing on top at events. Lacrosse is fighting for a spot in NCS and looking to make a push. Make sure to cheer on your fellow athletes as they enter the last stretch of the athletic season at Las Lomas.
