Maharishi School students enjoyed a successful spring sports season, with athletes qualifying for the state competition in golf, tennis, and track.
Leading the way was the boys golf team, which earned second place with their two-round total of 620, just eight strokes behind the champion.
The girls tennis team also qualified for the state competition, taking third place.
The tennis doubles team of Coral and Melodia Morales made it to the state semifinals, where they lost to the top-seeded team and ended up in fourth place.
In addition to these impressive results, a number of other tennis players finished first or second in regional competition and qualified for state.
Freshman Avery Gibson qualified in singles and won two matches at state for an eighth-place finish, while the doubles team of Tasha Blitz and Debora Swartz also got a win at state.
On the boys side, the team as a whole made it to the substate competition, where they were eliminated in a close match. Jeremy Jones qualified for state in singles and won one match. And Jamie Thatcher and Devon Jarvis qualified in doubles, easily winning their first-round match, but losing to the eventual champion 2-6, 5-7 in the quarterfinal.
Also competing at state for the girls team was Dariana Travis.
In the golf tournament Will Carlisle was fourth individually, shooting a 147. Aaron Steinberg earned a share of 11th place with a 156. Dylan Rudney finished in 13th place, tied with five others, after shooting a 158. Danny Steinberg and Mani Mullenneaux each shot 163 while Nick Juskewycz had a 167.
In track Justin Rocca also qualified for state in the 400 meters and competed in preliminary rounds.
