Athletics

Second week in October and we are fully underway into league play and stand at the top in 5 of 7 sports that our middle school and high school athletes are participating in this fall. Our HS Girls Volleyball team is undefeated at 17-0 on the season and currently hold the #1 ranking in the state for 3A Volleyball. The girls are fresh out of the Seaside Invitational VB Tourney where they took 1st place beating LaSalle Prep, Tillamook, and Banks that are currently the #12, #6, and #3 ranked teams in the state at the 4A level. Warrenton comes into town for the next league contest this Tuesday, October 11th. The JV girls will begin at 5:00 and varsity will take the court shortly after the completion of the JV match.

Our Girl’s Soccer team is currently ranked #11 in the state at the 3A/2A/1A level and continue climbing as they are undefeated in league play and hold a 5-2-1 season record. Next up for our girls is league opponent Portland Adventist. The Cardinals and Cougars will square off this Tuesday night, October 11th at 6:00pm under the lights at the Jeff Lucas Memorial Stadium and Red Wing Field. For the first year in Cardinal history our girl’s program had enough participants necessary to form a Junior Varsity team. This strong group of primarily freshmen are the future of Corbett Girl’s Soccer and find themselves competing against local 5A and 6A JV and JV2 squads. The girls take a short trip across the river to play at Battle Ground HS this afternoon, October 10th with a 4:00 start.

Our Boy’s Soccer team continued getting the job done through injury and adversity last week beating league rival Portland Christian by a score of 3-2. Oliver Tymoshuk picked up the hat trick putting his last goal of the night in the back of PC’s net with 2 minutes left to go in the match. Our boys are ranked #19 and currently sit at the top of the league standings with a 3-2-2 overall record and are 1-0 in league action. Next up for the boys is a short trip to league opponent Portland Adventist where they will square off against the Cougars this Tuesday, October 11th at 4:15

Our Football team continues to learn and grow under the direction of Coach Lance Lovitt. For many of our boys it is the 3rd set of offensive and defensive strategies brought in by 3 different coaches in 3 years. The boys are working hard and continue to improve. They are currently 0-1 in Lewis and Clark League play and face league opponent Clatskanie this upcoming Friday night, October 14th at the Tiger’s home field in Clatskanie beginning at 7:00pm.

Our Middle School Girl’s Volleyball teams continue their run for a 4th consecutive Metro Christian League Championship as they are undefeated in league play under the guidance of long standing coach Cheryl Reams. Next up for our girls is a home match against league opponent Horizon Christian on Tuesday, October 11th at 4:00/5:15 respectively for our JV and Varsity Middle School squads. Matches will be played in the Corbett Elementary Gym.

MS Football has rebounded from a tough season just one short year ago and currently stand undefeated in 3 contests beating a strong Rainier machine by a score of 24-22 last week. Perseverance has paid off for this young group as we look forward to the future of Corbett Football. The Cardinal’s next game is a home contest against WyEast Middle School of Hood River beginning at 4:30 today, October 10th on Red Wing Field, home of the Jeff Lucas Memorial Stadium.

Middle School Co-ed Soccer continues to roll as the team has been very competitive in most of their matches as they face Metro Christian League opponents. Next up for our Cardinals are the Portland Christian Royals at home, Tuesday, October 11th with a 4:15 start on the soccer field.

Come out and support all of our athletes as they spend many hours preparing to represent Corbett High School, Middle School and the Corbett Community through athletic performances. It’s a Great Time!
