Congratulations to Mustang Softball & Coach Farrell - for their victory over Etiwanda on Thursday in the CIF quarterfinals. YLHS softball is 24-3 for the season and will play in the CIF semi-final game on Tuesday against Santiago/Corona High School. Good Luck to our Lady Mustang Softball Team!!

A Big Thank You to the Senior Awards Committee and Chairman, Bincins Garcia - for a terrific Senior Awards Program last Monday. We recognized over 200 seniors for earning $3,545,150 in scholarships and grants, Department Awards, 46 Silver Level Mustang Scholars, 6 seniors that earned an “A” in every class, our Salutatorian and Valedictorians. The “Mustang of the Year” was awarded to Makenna Morris. It was a great night to honor our 2013 Senior Class.
