Horton and the Owls are coming off the program's most successful two-year stretch in program history.

Earlier in the year, So would win the 2014 WSC Individual Championships and the 2014 CCCAA SoCal Championships, while Lopez finished in fourth and third respectively. 

In 2015, Horton took the Owls even further, as Citrus qualified for the 2015 CCCAA State Championships as a team. Citrus went on to finish as the State Runner-Up. Individually, Horton helped Coach Lopez to a 2nd place individual finish at the 2015 CCCAA State Championships and So to a 4th place finish.
