The boys’ soccer team will also be on the road for their first round CIF match against Lawndale at 3 p.m. The boys finished their season in second place, behind the undefeated Valencia, with a 5-5-0 record.
Both girls’ and boys’ varsity basketball successfully clinched a spot in CIF this season. Girls’ basketball finished second behind Cypress and with a solid 7-3 record. They will be playing at our Sports Pavillion (The Barn) on Saturday at 7 p.m. against El Modena who finished third in the North Hills League. Tustin’s boys’ basketball squad had an unbelievable season. They went undefeated (10-0) and took home the Empire League title. Not only did they beat every team in league, they managed to crush most of the teams with a lead of double digits almost every game. The boys will be competing in a home game (in The Barn) against Schurr High School on Friday at 7 p.m.
