The team of Denise Gasti, Ann Ching and Mary Gong won the Alameda Women’s Golf Club’s (AWGC) team event with a net 123 last Thursday, Jan. 28, on the Earl Fry Course.

The event was structured in a 4-man best 2 net format. That means all four members of each team play each hole, but only the two best scores of each hole is counted and the other two scores discarded.

Not only did they win, they did so by a wide margin. The team of Jamie Totsubo, Maggie Lindquist, Jenny Bae and Fran Mori came in second place with a net 130.

The Encinal men’s basketball team achieved a hat trick against Alameda with a 51-46 victory last Friday, Jan. 29, at home.

The Jets and the Hornets both struggled in the second period. The two team failed to score in double figures — the only quarter neither team scored in double figure. The quarter ended in an 8-8 tie and the Jets held a 22-18 lead entering halftime. 

Last Year’s 12-11 St. Joseph Notre Dame (SJND) softball team defied the odds and advanced to the Div. V North Coast Section finals where they lost 5-1 to Clear Lake.
