Encinal High School (EHS) graduate Sherman Lee loves sports. Even better, he loves teaching sports. Lee graduated from EHS in 1957 and — along with his son Michael, EHS class of 1982 — is a member of the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame. 

The elder Lee played football, track and basketball for Encinal. His son played on the school’s 1980 NCS championship football team. Michael then attended Santa Clara University on a baseball and football scholarship.

Bae competed in the first flight among golfers with a handicap of 12 to 25. Maggie Lindquist shot a net 72 for second place in the flight. Dot Moody and Sherry Westernoff both shot net 73s to tie for third place. Pat O’Hara rounded out the top five with a net 75.

“Be a Warrior & Donate” was the theme at the Alameda Theatre & Cineplex and Cinema Grill in the quest to raise funds for the Golden State Warrior’s Community Foundation during this year’s National Basketball Association (NBA) playoffs. As an official Warrior’s watch party venue, the theater presented the games on its large screen. 

The theater also organized raffles, giveaways, trivia quizzes, dance contests and theme events to help raise money for the foundation. On “Swag Nite” fans competed to see who could don the most Warriors attire.
