Culver City High School’s sports weekend starts today when the boys and girls track and field teams face El Segundo inside the Jerry Chabola Stadium at 3 o’clock.
The Centaurs are hoping to continue their dominance on the track against El Segundo after defeating Hawthorne last week.
All four track and field teams, varsity boys and girls and boys and girls freshmen and sophomores, will try to beat a very good El Segundo team.
“We are looking forward to the challenge,” said Coach Jahmal Wright after a practice. “Our coaching staff has done a wonderful job preparing our student athletes. I would like to say once again that we have a great coaching staff. We have a mixture of young and older coaches. They create an outstanding environment for our athletes.”
On Saturday, the track and field teams travel to Mira Costa to compete in the Mustang Relays.
Starting at 9, the always- competitive meet will feature some of the top talent in Southern California.
“This is a great meet to showcase our athletes,” said girls Coach Rayfield M. Beaton. “We are young but we still expect our kids to perform at a high level.”
The 2-3-1 baseball team will play South Torrance on Saturday at 1 on the Culver City campus.
Tuesday afternoon at 3, they open Ocean League play at Lawndale.
The girls lacrosse team, 4-1 overall, won its Ocean League opener against Mira Costa 11-8.
On Friday they host Downey at 4.
On Wednesday, they visit Santa Monica at 4.
The boys lacrosse team, 3-3, plays two home games next week, meeting Santa Monica on Wednesday and Peninsula the next day. Both start at 5.
