Women’s Golf Wrap Up

Ending with an undefeated season of 10-0 in league, women’s golf saw another year of hard work and dedication pay off on the course.
With its home practice course at the Reserve in Spanos Park, the team worked on their short game (chip shots, pitch shots and putts). Through practice, the team excelled in accuracy and defeated Stagg, Franklin, McNair, Edison and Chavez.
This year the team’s biggest accomplishment was winning their league with only five players, because most teams have six players.
“While practicing chipping and putting on the course, my short game drastically improved from last year,” Junior Teya Amen said.
Players continued to strive for their personal best—diligently going to practice and participating in matches even though they did not have the optimal number of players. Last year, the team had the privilege of having 6 players on the team.
“ We should be stronger next year to hopefully do better in playoffs,” Coach Zermeno said.
This year in playoffs, the team scored a total of 500 and qualified as a team.

Football Wrap Up

Bear Creek’s football team has had an improving season with an ending record of 5-5. With the season kicking off in August and ending with a final game against McNair in October, the team believes they have drastically improved offensively.
“My favorite part of the season was definitely the beginning of August and September,” senior Jafari Binder said. “Everyone was pumped and ready to play their hearts out after the two hard months of conditioning.”
After conditioning, the team had a preseason with some solid teams, which allowed the Bruins to come prepared and raised their anticipation for future wins.
“The biggest success of the season was our comeback win against East Union.” Offensive Coordinator Tony Gonzales said.
This was a very close game with a final score of 36-34. Bear Creek won this comeback with a last minute interception by Jafari Binder with only one minute and sixteen seconds left on the clock in the fourth quarter.
“At that moment, everything slowed down and I realized that if my team was going to win, I needed to make a big play,” Binder said.
One of the biggest obstacles of the season was losing players to injuries. There were approximately 8 to 10 players out on knee and other injuries.
Next year new obstacles will be faced, considering the team is expecting to lose 22 seniors.
“Next year’s plans consist of a lot of rebuilding since we are losing a lot of our seniors,” Gonzales said.
