November Update from the Athletics Department:
As the fall athletics season comes to an end, Pirates are celebrating successes on the fields, along the trails, on the course, and in the pool.
Here is more about our fall season of Pirate Athletics:
Football – Varsity football finished in second with a 5-1 record in league (6-3 overall). A highlight was winning their final game 42-6, known as the “Pirate Bowl”, against the Harbor High School Pirates. The Pirates will graduate 10 seniors, including quarterback Justin D. ’24, from the team this year but have a strong core of juniors, sophomores and 9th graders returning to next year’s team.
Cross Country – The cross country team participated in the PCAL championships at the Palo Corona course in Carmel with the varsity boys placing tenth out of 23 schools. This earned them a spot to represent PCAL at the CCS championships at Crystal Springs in Belmont, CA, where they finished fifth out of 14 teams.
Volleyball – Girls varsity volleyball made history earning Stevenson their first league title! They finished with a 21-5 record and made it to the CCS quarterfinals. Ava E. ’25, Lucia de M.’25, and Gina da S. ’25 led the team in “kills and Taylor O. ’24 was a stand out on defense.
Girls Tennis – Girls varsity tennis finished undefeated in league with a 10-0 record earning them their first league title since 2017. Lynn F. ’25 went on to play in the first round of the CCS singles tournament and finished the season strongly.
Girls Golf – Girls varsity golf finished undefeated in league again this year, and went on to place second at the CCS Golf Championships. They advanced to the Norcal Regional Qualifier and, after a long weekend of tough competition in Berkeley, placed 7th overall as a team. Nikki I. ’25 placed third as an individual and, for the third time, plays in the State Championship at Poppy Hills on November 15.
Water Polo – Boys and girls varsity water polo teams both finished undefeated in league. The boys made it to the quarterfinal game of the CCS tournament winning by a score of 6- 5. A balanced attack resulted in goals from Laird W. ’26 (2), Beckett H. ’25 (2), Cash S. ’24 (1), and Will B. ’25 (1). Tate E. ’24 was a standout in the goal, blocking a penalty shot late in the game and sealing a Pirate victory by blocking Pioneer’s final shot. They advanced to the CCS D2 semifinals for only the 3rd time in school history.
Fresh off a back-to-back CCS championship, the #4 seed Pirates advance to the CIF NorCal Regional Championship Division III semi-final with a 12-8 win over #5 seed El Capitan. Juniors Miranda S. ‘25 and Emmerson F. ‘25 scored 5 goals each in the win! The Pirates, who are now 23-7 overall, will face #1 seed Archbishop Mitty in the semi-final on November 17 and will look to return to the CIF NorCal Championship match for the second consecutive season.
Field Hockey – The girls varsity field hockey team finished 7-1 in league and hosted Leigh High School in the second round of CCS November 1. Despite a valiant team effort, the Pirates lost 2-0. The team’s nine graduating seniors made two CCS appearances in their high school careers.
Sailing – In their most recent race, two Pirates placed on the podium at the Norcal Regatta. Stevenson sailors finished among the top three pairs of the Gold and Silver Divisions at the NorCal 4 Regatta on November 5 at the Encinal Yacht Club in Alameda. In the Gold Division, Max M. ’24 and Patrick O ’27 ended the race in third place. In the Silver Division, Dillan S. ’27 and Steven L. ’27 finished in second place. The Pirate sailing season concluded at the statewide regatta at Southern California’s Newport Harbor Yacht Club.
