The regular season came to an end last week for high school sports teams and a few local teams were crowned champions of their respective leagues.

The La Jolla Country Day girls basketball team, a state title contender, scorched through the Coastal South with a perfect 6-0 record. The Torreys (23-4 overall) begin their CIF playoffs Friday against Christian or Escondido Charter.

The Bishop’s School’s girls soccer team also cruised to a Coastal South title with a perfect 8-0 record in league play. The Knights (11-3 overall) will take on either Chula Vista High Tech or Guajome Park in their CIF quarterfinal game Saturday.

The Bishop’s School also had its girls water polo team win the Western League title and now are focused on the CIF playoffs.

La Jolla High’s wrestling team won the Western League as well as had four wrestlers capture CIF titles in Peter Donchev (135-pounds), Kirk Lee

(140), Quinn Strauser (152), and Matt Vasquez (160).

Just missing out on a league title was the La Jolla girls soccer team. The Vikings finished right behind Coronado for the Western League title with a 6-2-2 conference record. The Vikings (11-4-3 overall) are the No. 2 seed in the CIF playoffs and will take on the winner of Ramona or Santana on Saturday.
