At Marymount, we believe our athletics programs help young women develop skills that nurture the intrinsic qualities and values of sportsmanship. We also believe that honesty, diversity, and integrity create the core foundation of a Marymount student-athlete. Marymount Athletics provides each student with the opportunity to work with a team toward a common goal that shapes an athlete’s character and strengthens her moral development. Our athletics programs not only provide a student with these opportunities but it prepares her to compete successfully at the next level, collegiately and in life. The confidence achieved through success in attaining one’s individual goals is demonstrated in young woman’s poise, maturity and compassion.
A young woman who feels good about herself also accepts others more readily and is consequently more willing to reach out and assist her fellow women and men. It is our goal for our students to demonstrate Christian love with a strong sense of justice in all of their endeavors, showing kindness, joy, self-discipline and perseverance. We wish all of our athletes great success while remembering that “When the Great Scorer comes to mark against your name, he writes not that you won or lost, but how you played the game.” –Grantland Rice

Saturday, Sept. 25 was a big day for the Marymount Frosh/Soph team. They played in the annual Dave Moh’s Tournament, their first Fr/So only tourney event this year. ALL the Sailors saw playing time and the team did VERY well. The Dave Moh’s tourney hosted 30 total teams and Marymount’s Sailors ended up “on the podium” with a bronze medal finish.
Match #1 was against the “B” team from Los Alamitos HS. Marymount won the match in straight sets, 25-11, 25-17. Logan D. '25 led the way on offense scoring at will with sets from Kate W. '24. The strong serving came from several Sailors and nice “D” from Vanessa C. '25 and Kay I '25.
Match #2’s opponent was Ontario Christian HS. Our Sailors were more than ready for this one as they dominated the match and won 25-6 and 25-8. Cedar M. '25 has a good game on offense and Peyton H. '25 came off the bench to contribute in the back row.
Then, after quite a long wait, as the other pools in the tournament wrapped up their play, Marymount jumped into the playoff rounds (the playoff “matches” were just one set to 25 points). Due to their efforts in pool play, they earned the #1 seed for the playoffs.
Opponent #1 was the Fr/So team from Long Beach Poly. Poly came ready to play and gave the Sailors a good fight. Strong passing from Vanessa '25, Kay '25, and Bella M.'25 was a big factor that allowed Kate W. '24 to run a nice offense. Logan '25 and Masha L. '25 led in kills and Marymount prevailed 25-16.
On to the quarterfinals then, the Sailors took on San Clemente HS. Along with passing and her “D”, Vanessa C. '25 served the San Clemente team into “trouble” as well. The match was close up to a score of 15-15, then Marymount pulled away on very good ball control and sound hitting from Logan, Masha, and Yva A. '25 The final score was 25-20.
Now, our Sailors’ Fr/So team found themselves in the semi-finals. For this match, they faced the “A” team from Los Alamitos. The set started off strong, with both teams playing well., Marymount then pulled away, producing a 16-12 lead. Los Alamitos then fought back on some good offense from their outside hitter (and some unfortunate, errant passes on the Sailors part). The battle continued on and the score got to 20-20 and 23-23 toward the end. Los Alamitos ended up prevailing with a final score of 25-23.
It was a great day for the Sailors as they REALLY showed what they have learned about the game of volleyball and how MUCH they have improved. Great job Sailors!
The Frosh/Soph team had a nice change of schedule this week. With no match on Tuesday (usually they play on Tuesdays), the team had three solid days of practice to work on their “game.” And work they did!
Coach Porter had the girls work on each aspect of the game, particularly passing to the setter. The dividends of their hard work showed up nicely in their match on Thursday against league rival Harvard-Westlake. The Sailors prevailed 2-0, keeping their undefeated status in league play. Vanessa C. '25 saw her debut at the setting position and she handled the new job wonderfully and ran the offense very efficiently. Her fine setting produced numerous kills, contributed well by Logan D. '25 and Masha L. '25. The team is heading to the Dave Mohs Tournament this weekend to take on some tough competition, Good Luck Sailors!
The JV tennis team headed to their home court at Cheviot Hills to take on Geffen Academy for their match on September 23rd.

'25, and Olivia R.'24 all were successful in winning their singles matches against Geffen.

The Varsity Sailors hosted the Wolverines on Thursday at home and defeated them in 4 games (25-13, 19-25, 25-16, 31-29.) It was an exciting match up and the Sailors stepped up their game by having 55 digs, 10 blocks, and hitting at 350%! Torrey S. '23 was out of the lineup for the Sailors with an injured thumb, and it gave others an opportunity to step in. Kate M. '24 started for the first time all year, she passed 15 balls, had 10 kills, and had a hitting percentage of 333%. Dior C. '23 had her biggest night yet with 11 kills on 20 attempts and 6 blocks.

The Frosh/Soph team returned to Mission League play on Sept. 14, taking on Notre Dame Academy. The Sailor’s goal was to keep their “undefeated in league” status. Notre Dame proved to be a strong opponent. The Sailors struggled in the first set, seeming to be out of their usual, steady rhythm, and lost 20-25. It was time to re-group, and they did. The passing improved, which allowed the offense to get going, led by Logan D. '25, Masha L. '25, and Marlee P '24. Kay I. '25 and Vanessa C. '25 were the key to getting the passing going for the Sailors. Strong serving returned in set #2; making a big difference. Notably, the real “star of the show” was Masha L '25. She had 6 kills in the last two sets, 3 blocks, and 3 digs. And, on two separate turns of service, Masha served 6 and 5 straight points respectively. The Sailors reached their goal, winning the match 20-25, 25-17, 15-8. Go Marymount VB!
