Athletes Rise to the Challenge
By Tom Doppe
As the end of the fall athletic season draws to a close, I wanted to share our successes with the community. Athletics is important to any school as it both reflects and contributes to a positive school culture, and there has been a lot of positivity this year. Recently, Alhambra was named the #17 school in the Bay Area for athletics. Here is a summary of our fall season highlights:
Cross Country 3rd place individual finish at the Girls League Championship and both boys and girls teams competed for the NCS Championship in Hayward on November 18.
Boys Water Polo Competed in the first round of NCS
Girls Golf Finished 1st place in our division and had a top 10 golfer in the section
Girls Tennis Finished 1st place in our division for the first time in many years (maybe ever!) and competed as a team at NCS
Football Finished 1st place in our division and ended the season in the first round of the NCS playoffs in Eureka on November 11.
Girls Volleyball Finished 1st place in our division and played on for the NCS championship on November 11. The team played in the State Championship on November 15.
Of course we love to watch our students compete at a high level, but we are even more proud of the way they model being student athletes by maintaining their grades in the classroom and their citizenship on campus.
As always, thank you for your support and Go Dogs!
