Athletics Playoff Update

League and CIF Playoffs are wrapping up and Winter sports are gearing up.


Matadors win in the first round of the playoffs!
MMHS 27: EHS 18

The Matadors were disappointed with their seeding entering the playoffs after finishing the season with a 4-6 record and beating some of the higher seeds.  They used that as fuel in their opening game Friday night versus Escondido High School beating the cougars 27-18. 

Mount Miguel was down 9-0 when Escondido attempted an onside kick that was scooped up by ULISES MONJE, who ended up running it back 50 yards for the touchdown to turn it into a 9-7 game. That changed the momentum of the game and got the Matadors going. The offensive ground game was led by SHEMAR GREENE, who carried 30 times for 146 yards and three touchdownsHe also contributed with a 36-yard pass down the left sideline from senior quarterback MUGABE MILLER to set up the go ahead score. The Matador defense was the highlight of the night. Newly inserted Freshman middle linebacker JACOB LADEREIRE had 7 1/2 tackles for Mount Miguel. 

Alex Lemon was a dominate force on the line recording multiple sacks, and causing mayhem for the quarterbacks of Escondido. CJ Jackson who lines up opposite of Lemon also had a night with a number of tackles for losses and a sack. The Matadors dedicated the game to fellow teammate Damionte Wafer who sustained an injury last week that kept him out of the game. 

The Matadors are back on the road to take on #1 seed Southwest El Centro next Friday Nov 17 at 7:00 in the quarterfinals.  


Mount Miguel' girls volleyball team ended the regular season with a record of 9-11 which was good enough to be slotted into the CIF playoffs. The downside to their record was they were seeded #16 and would have to travel to #1 seed and defending CIF Champion Maranatha Christian. The Matadors were eventually upended by the Eagles in three putting an end to their season.

The ladies finished with a record of 9-12 and say goodbye to seniors Miracle Maseuli, Kiara Harrison, Juliette Harris, Yvette Andrade, Mia Minjares, Juana Machado, Kat Gonzales, Natelie Lopez, and Jayline Galindez. The Matadors had players recognized for All League- Miracle Maseuli (2nd team selection), Kerri Gordon, Nyssa Maga (Honorable Mention).


Girls Tennis season ended as a team with 4 wins and 6 losses. H​owever, individually we had the best scores in the league.

Mary Tran finished with a record of 28 wins 2 losses in singles. She finished second in league and made it to the second round at CIF. Mary also received Grossmont League Athlete of The Year and MVP.
