WEEKEND UPDATE II
Undefeated La Habra won the Chino Hills Ayala tournament last weekend, defeating Glendale St. Lucy's in the final, 9-3, to give Coach Eugene Char plenty of reasons to smile.
Leading scorer Natasha Petersson, a sophomore, junior Katie Goins and senior Renee Moyer have helped the Highlanders to their best start.
"I never thought we'd be 6-0," Char said. "We have more wins now than we had combined over the last two seasons. To start off like this has really given the kids some confidence."
In other nonleague girls matches:
La Habra 7, Los Altos (HH) 6 (OT): Renee Moyer scored five goals as the Highlanders (8-1) defeated the host Conquerors (1-8).

The girls’ Varsity Water Polo team has really come far since last year and is motivated to be competitive against the opponents.
Star players sophomore Natasha Peterson and senior Renee Moyer work hard and do well in the games. “They always do their best,” said Coach Eugene Char.
With tough practices everyday, the team has become strong. “The players have made a big improvement since last year,” commented Char. “Practices are really hard at first because there’s so much work involved but you get used to it after a while,” said sophomore Millie Urrutia.
The team members also prepared in a summer training program, in which they played more than 25 games. “The girls did really well. Even though they didn’t win a lot of games, they really improved,” said Char. “The summer helped us prepare for the school year a lot,” said sophomore Alyssa Talkington.
The team is shooting to make the CIF championships. “I think our team is doing really well this year and I hope we make it to CIF,” said sophomore Codi Robinson.
“There is a chance we will be upsetting a lot of other teams in CIF, due to our competitiveness,” said Char.
“While it is important to win, it is imperative to compete,” said Moyer.
In the JV tournament the girls won 3-2. They also played Costa Mesa on Dec. 19 and won 6-4. Peterson scored three points while Moyer scored the other three. Varsity went 6-1 in the Ayala Tournament held Nov. 30 to Dec. 2
