Our Team Captain Sofia Velarde '22 pulled off a strong finish to snatch the Bronze Medal from a group of shooters that battled throughout the competition. Congratulations to all the OLP Archers for persevering through a challenging season.

JV Softball has had an exciting season so far with some exciting games and an array of wins and losses. The most recent game of the season played on Wednesday, April 13, just before Easter was a big win for the Pilots, scoring 26 runs against Canyon Hills, scoring 14 runs. This game was pitched by Jovanna Garcia '25 who pitched a total of 56 strikes and two strikeouts against the opponents. In the field the Pilots had crucial outs executed by Elisabeth Downing '25 at first base, Nicolette Beadle '25 at shortstop, Sofia Camarena '25 at third base, and Rosie Raban '22 and Francesca Wurst '25 at left and center field. For the first time in a game this season, the JV Pilots had their first pick-off play from home to first to get a big out with a smart, well-timed throw from catcher Clara Raban '24 to first base, Elisabeth Downing '25. The Pilots at-bat completed many great hits and earned runs including Clara Raban '24 hitting a clean double with a fly ball into the outfield, Roselyn Raban '22 and Bianca Vega '25 both hitting line drives to get on base and advance runners already on base. Francesca Wurst '25, Alyssa Anning '25, Elisabeth Downing '25, and Jovanna Garcia '25 all had base hits that brought runners home and all four of these pilots started off the game with clever base running, stealing second, third and home on various occasions. Linda Dominguez '25 and Clara Raban '24 led the Pilots with runs-batted-in when they were up at-bat. The team was missing a player, Yasmeen Shah '25, in this game and the team worked hard & came together to earn a win that represents the teamwork and dedication of the athletes that make up our OLP JV Softball team.

The OLP Esports team finished their spring season with a bang! This year’s team consisted of Isabel Borossay '23, Captain Peyton Brown '22, Czarina Datiles '23, Corinna Falcon '23, and Jennifer Kerwin '23. The team boasted a few wins in Mario Kart, Splatoon 2, and Super Smash Bros! They made it to the Spring Playoffs this year and we wish them all good luck! They've had a great year and look forward to their upcoming seasons!

Swim & Dive
Your OLP Swim & Dive team has had its most successful and most fun season yet! As the regular season finished up on Holy Thursday, the girls have so much to be proud of. They’ve changed the Aquatics scene in and out of the water. We couldn’t be prouder!

Our JV Team did the improbable. For the first time in school history, they completed a FULL undefeated season, defeating all league opponents and with big wins over perennial powerhouses Bishops, Coronado, and University City High School. They worked so hard, and improved so much this season! Truly Spectacular!

Your Varsity gals completed the Eastern League sweep and earned their first official League title in years after a strong 102 - 66 win against San Diego High School at our Senior Nite meet at our home, The Kroc Center. It was an impressive team win, with season-best times and first-time Varsity performances.

We then got to have an awesome, combined Senior Night celebration with Saints to honor our 10 Seniors and their one Senior! Complete with tears, funny glasses, and donuts, it was quite the time and we will always be thankful for how these seniors have changed our aquatic culture for good!

We’re going to put in work over Spring Break so we can dive into championship season and keep the good energy rolling. Pray for all those competing in City Conference and CIF meets coming up!

It was so fun to see the kids' hard work really pay off. We are going to continue to glorify God through all that we do and keep moving in this positive direction. As we complete this regular season and approach championship times - come out and support our gals if you get a chance!

Get used to hearing about this team, friends. Big things to come. God is so good, and so are y'all!
