Week of Sports, January 28-February 2

The final week of the regular season brings with it the final playoff push for our boys teams, a final lap for our league champion girls basketball and soccer teams, and one last tournament for girls water polo to determine the league champion and playoff position!
 
  • Boys soccer kicks off this week with a home game Monday afternoon against Samueli Academy. A win clinches the third and final playoff spot out of the Academy league. A loss or tie means Samueli Academy will finish in that spot. Either way the regular season will end on Wednesday with a home game vs Tarbut V' Torah.
  • Girls soccer has clinched at least a share of the Academy League title and needs just one win in their final three games this week to take the outright crown. The first game is today away at Brethren Christian, followed by a home game vs Connelly tomorrow and finishing the season with a home game vs Fairmont Prep on Thursday.
  • Girls Water Polo will compete in the Hacienda League tournament this week and enters as the #1 seed. On Tuesday they will play the winner of the Wet Covina-Charter Oak game from earlier Tuesday afternoon and then on Thursday they will likely play the winner of the Walnut-Los Altos match with the league title on the line for the winner. All of the games this week will be at Charter Oak High School.
  • Wrestling will be competing at the league individual tournament on Tuesday at Lucerne Valley. Top three finishers in each weight class will move onto the CIF individual tournament on February 8th and 9th.
  • Girls Basketball has also clinched no worse then a share of the league title and also needs one win this week to take the title outright. First up is Southlands Christian on Tuesday before they finish the regular season with a game at CC Downey on Thursday.
  • Boys Basketball needs three wins this week to keep their guaranteed playoff hopes alive. First up is a game at current last place in league CC Downey on Tuesday. A win vs CC Downey would likely make it (contingent on results of other games) so that a win vs Southlands Christian on Thursday would result in a tie for third between Webb and Southlands Christian. Should that happen, Webb and Southlands Christian would play again on Friday evening with the winner taking the last and final guaranteed playoff spot from the Academy league. If the play in game does not happen the team will finish their regular season with a game at Rio Hondo Prep on Friday night.

  • Honor and Moral Courage

    Christopher Michno
    Mention the word “honor” in a crowded room and you are likely to suffer quizzical glances followed by silence. Honor, to many, seems an awkward, unfashionable, even antiquated concept—something to contemplated in private or through the scrim of heroic fiction, like the blood feuds of the Capulets and Montagues, or the Grangerfords and Shepherdsons.
     
    Yet, Head of Schools Taylor Stockdale contends, there is something important to be gleaned from the discussion of honor, something that has been missing from our cultural climate, broadly, and in education for some time—a focus on moral clarity, of discerning, very simply, right from wrong. Stockdale insists such clarity is possible even though it doesn’t always come naturally. “You have to work at it,” but the benefits, he adds, is that moral clarity allows you to make good decisions.
