The Bucs, under head coach Cameron Mitchell, finished with an overall record of 11-17 and a 12th place seed in the Division IV playoffs. Mission Bay fell in the first round of the playoffs.
“The ladies team had some key injuries down the stretch that changed the course of what was an extremely good season,” Mitchell commented. “Gwen Morris Lundstrom led our team in almost every statistical category especially scoring 23 points per game (26 ppg in conference) and our team fought extremely hard through all our second half adversity shining and with our heads high.”
According to Mitchell, he is quite excited about the direction of the program. “I’m so excited and can’t wait for next year when we definitely will be CIF champions,” Mitchell added.
Boys soccer, under head coach Joe Panian, finished with a 10-2-3 record.
“We came in second in the league and lost in the first round of playoffs,” Panian said. “The players of note for the season were Cody Armstrong, Trevor Reichenberg (senior defender), Anthony Munoz (senior midfielder), and Will Francis (sophomore forward).”
According to Panian, the team this year was electric offensively, creating chances, scoring goals (some fantastic, eye-catching goals) but were unable to solve defensive lapses and decision-making problems. As a result, it caused them to falter just a bit in the league and during playoffs.
The Bucs had a fantastic season under head coach Jorge Palacios, which came to an end in the second round of CIF’s. Mission Bay went 17-1-3, won the Eastern League crown, and lost in the Division II quarterfinals.
Mission Bay, under head coach Marshawn Cherry, finished up at 12-18. The Bucs lost in the Division I quarterfinals to top seed Santa Fe Christian.
