New Roads girls

and boys soccer teams both defeated Wildwood on Feb. 7 in matches held at

Marine Park and Mar Vista Park, respectively.  The final score for the

boys match was 4-3, while the girls match ended 2-0.

For the

girls, goals were scored by freshman Gabby Watkin and sophomore Marlena

Backlar, assisted by junior Claire Van Every. For the girls’ soccer team, getting

the win against Wildwood is a big deal. 

The Jaguars (1-10-1) notched their

first win of the season against Wildwood. New Roads boys’

basketball team also racked up both league and non-league wins in two home

games at played at Memorial Park Gym. In the league

match on Feb. 3, the host New Roads Jaguars basketball team scored a decisive 71-43 triumph over the Lennox Academy Panthers.

 It was the Jaguars fourth win of

the season and second victory in the Coastal League this year. In a non-league

outing on Jan. 31, the Jaguars basketball squad edged the visiting Pacific Lutheran Stingrays (Gardena), by a margin of 57-52

However,

those back-to-back wins were offset by consecutive losses. The Jaguars fell to

Wildwood, 62-48, on Feb. 4. New Roads (4-16, 2-9) concluded its regular season

with an 84-36 defeat to Rolling Hills Prep on Saturday, Feb. 8. 

Still, those

defeats didn’t take away the two victories New Roads was able to pick up late

in the season.  

“We are proud to have these wins under

our belts, but even more proud of the tenacity and work ethic these teams have

demonstrated this season,” said New Roads Athletic Director Matt

Steinhaus.
