Even though the mountain has just begun to see its first signs of winter, at Rim of the World High School, winter season sports have officially come to an end.

Winter sports at Rim consisted of boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, and wrestling. Pre-season games began in late November, giving the Fighting Scots a chance to warm up and begin playing as a team before taking on league games.

On Jan. 9, boys and girls basketball and soccer kicked off league, battling against Indian Springs High School, and Rim Wrestling started league with a duel against San Gorgonio High School on Jan. 10.

Season games ended on Feb. 8 for both basketball and soccer, and wrestling ended on Jan. 24. The players then advanced to league finals and CIF.

As it stands, MaxPreps reported that Lady Scots basketball has a league record of 4(W)-6(L); the team has an overall record of 7 and 16, which is made up of pre-season games, as well.

Boys basketball sits with a 0 and 8 record, although stats for two of the games haven’t been posted. The Mountain News reported a win against San Gorgonio High School on Jan. 18, which would change the league record for the Scots. The overall record for boys basketball, according to MaxPreps, is 3-18.

Girls soccer, which includes a team made up of young players who will be playing for a few more years, had a season of learning about each other’s strengths and weaknesses, and how to use those to their advantage. In league, the Lady Scots came in at 2-6-2 (tied games), with an overall record of 7-16-2.

Boys soccer had a great season in terms of team building but, in the San Andreas League, had an end record of 0 and 10. The team’s overall record was 1-14-2, with its win being against Big Bear High School for the title of ‘King of the Mountain.’

With a team made up of many first-time wrestlers, the Rim wrestling team had an outstanding season. Although not every match was won, the growth in each wrestler was evident. Despite its being a young team, four individual wrestlers advanced to CIF after competing in league finals.

Starting at the end of February are spring sports, which will consist of boys volleyball, boys tennis, baseball, track and field and softball.
