Cross Country
Webb’s cross country teams competed in the Woodbridge Invitational last Friday, ending the evening with impressive results. The Webb Schools cross country team was among the top three Division 5 teams for the entire race.

Top finisher medals were given to Bibbens, Liam Gerken '20, Kellen Willmore '20, Tom Liu '18, Michael Martinez '21, Luke Raus '20, Dean Wolfe '21, and Orion Lavin-Marz '20.
 
Vivian Webb cross country found out how they stacked up, as a team, against last year’s league runners-up, Samueli Academy. Freshman Lily Miller finished ahead of last year’s individual league champion, Natalie Hernandez of Samueli Academy. Miller led the Vivian Webb runners overall with a time of 18:06 for 3 miles. Following Miller over the line for varsity was Sarah Hebb '18 (20:30) and Anne Lofgren '19 (20:58), Rounding out the varsity group was Madison Steinorth '18 and Amelie Cook '20, at 23:01 and 23:03, respectively. —Allegra McDermott '18
 
WSC Football

While Garey took the lead from the start, the Gauls made a strong comeback in the second quarter with two touchdowns and another touchdown in the final quarter. Nick Johnson '19 and Simon Dawson '19 ran the ball to the end zone and JJ Cunningham '19 received a pass in order to score. Luke Gonzales '19 earned Webb 5 points for kicking. Finally, Dawson and Chris Haliburton '20 made the most tackles this game, helping the Gauls to victory.

VWS Golf
Heading into league territory, VWS was challenged by the Gabrielino Eagles in a three-hour match last Tuesday, the first of their two league matches for the week. Sophomore Cecilia Li remarked, ”We knew we were going to lose, so we were just kind of having fun and getting use to our course better.” The Gauls lost to the Eagles, 273-210. —Victoria Castro '18
 
 
VWS Volleyball
Last week was challenging for VWS varsity with two games and an away tournament and few wins for the Gauls. At an away game on Tuesday, September 12, against La Mirada, the Gauls lost to the Matadors in three. On Friday, September 15, the Gauls were pumped to face nearby Ganesha and after the 0-3 loss on Tuesday, our team persevered and won against the Giants, 3-1. On Saturday, the girls traveled to Diamond Ranch to face Diamond Ranch, Gladstone, and Diamond Bar, losing all three games. A rough week, but our players consistently showed their spirt on the court and off, gearing up for next week’s challenges. —Ivy Liu '19

WSC Water Polo
September 12, WSC water polo had an away game at Granite Hills High School. The game started out positive for the Gauls with a strong offense, which is reflected in the score. As the game progressed the team began to focus on more defense. It ended with a win for Webb 11-3. This game was a great way to set the week off on a high note.
 
Later on in the week on Thursday, Webb played Bonita High School at home, a tough game for the Gauls. There were many ejections on both teams as well as long stretches of continuous gameplay. Phil Kraus '18 and Robert Torrance '19 scored goals throughout the game, some of which were skip shots and outside 5-meter shots. Webb kept the goalie active. Despite the great fight from the Gauls until the last second, it eventually ended in a 9-13 loss.
 
The next day Webb hosted another home game against West Covina High School. This game was a good opportunity to get lots of practice. Coach Kalter gave all his players lots of subs to rotate all the players in this game. Kevin Kang '19 made many strong shots leading in the Webb win, 17-5. Overall, the Gauls had a strong week. —Sonia Malik '18
