ATHLETICS: Spring Sports

Baseball and Softball season is in full swing! Our Fairmont Prep Huskies are giving their all and having a great time! Boy’s baseball is 4-9 so far, with big pre-season wins against Southland’s Christian, La Sierra Academy, and Whitney High School. Thus far in league they are 1-4 and have beaten Liberty Christian. The girl’s softball team is currently 0-3, and played Orangewood Academy 3 times. In their third game against each other, the Lady Huskies lost in a very close game, 26-25. Sophomore Rachel Williams hit a grand slam to keep the game close. The boys have two more home games and look to finish their season with a couple more victories! The girls are looking to finish their season strong as well!

STUDENT ACTIVITIES: Prom 2014

Last week at Fairmont Prep, the prom theme for 2014 was revealed! Prom will be held by the juniors and they did a great job revealing the theme to the school with a romantic video. Cirque Du Mystere is the theme and prom will be held at Balboa Landing, Newport Beach. The color scheme is red, purple, and gold, and the dance will be a masquerade. Masks will be provided upon arrival by the juniors, for a more “mysterious” look. It’s the last dance of the year to send the seniors off right! It is going to be a great time.

ATHLETICS: Boy's Tennis


Boy's tennis season has come to an end. They started the season well, with a win in their first game. Although they were not able to remain consistent, the team stayed positive as they continued to practice and bond as a team. Team Ace Max Pham proved his place in the national rankings as he powered through and maintained his PERFECT winning record. The team ended with a 5-9 record and are determined to improve for next year. "We had a good season this year, although we did not make it to CIF playoffs, says Team Captain David Kwon. "Although our record was not as good as last year, this season was a building season for next year," says Max Pham, "our guys are working hard and I feel that next year when we are in a league that we can make it to CIFS."  Max will be representing Fairmont at CIF individuals for Division I.
