Our 2017 Homecoming Queen was Kaitlyn Espinoza and our King was Josh Yubeta. A special thanks and recognition to all those who put the time and effort to make an event like Homecoming go off so well and make it an enjoyable evening for all. Starting with MBS and our crew of ASB students who put on a great week of Homecoming celebrations that included decorations, noon time events, Rally’s and all of the intricacies of the evening itself. Bre Abe and our Cheerleaders did a great job with spirit, new cheer boxes and a halftime show. Geoff Ruud and our Black Watch Brigade also provided their usually pep and halftime entertainment with class. Our custodial and maintenance crew had the field looking great! Nice job to the whole group.
In Cross country this Saturday at Woodward Park, Moises Medrano ran a school record 15:23 on the state meet course and finished 11th place in the prestigious Sweepstakes race (he was the top finisher in the entire section). This individual race features most of the very best runners in the state and is actually considered tougher than the state meet itself because the sweepstakes event is not based on team divisional placement. Haley Ulloa was our top girls finisher in the team race with a time of 20:23 and Peter Wykoff led our boys team race with a time of 17:33.
Have a great week and GO SCOTS!!!
On Friday our JV Football stared off the weekend with a 49-2 victory over Hoover. After the game the opposing coach and officials were very complimentary about our boys and coaching staff. We conducted ourselves with class and composure. Our Varsity team kept the momentum up on the way to a 51-15 victory. Cade Sakamoto and Matt Miranda started off the scoring on the opening drive with their first of two TD passing connections, Marquie Lewis added two touchdowns on the ground. Once again it was truly a team effort as the offense moved the ball with efficiency and our defense held a very athletic group from Hoover from any momentum. Our Varsity team is now 5-0 and will begin League play this week vs Foothill. (Remember the varsity game will start at 7:00)
Our Varsity Tennis team won the D-4 section of the Lewis Cup on Saturday. This group has been working hard and steadily improving throughout the year.
In Cross Country at the Bell Jeff Invitational, Moises Medrano finished 2nd in the seeded race with the impressive time of 14:38. This raced featured two of the top runners in the state and was neck in neck to the very end. Moises closed the small gap at the finish, but ran out of real estate, and ended up .4 seconds behind. In the Varsity Boys team race (without Moises) our Boys took first, led by Peter Wykoff and all the varsity boys medaled. Alexa led our Varsity girls team with a medal finish and our JV boys finished 3rd.
