Both Alameda high school football teams were downed in the opening round of the North Coast Section (NCS) playoffs in blowouts last Saturday, Nov. 14.
The Alameda Hornets proved to be outmatched by Tennyson of Hayward Saturday afternoon. The Hornets, the 12th seed, lost 30-0 in a pretty remarkable fashion in the first round of the NCS Div. II playoffs. The Lancers, the fifth seed, scored all 30 of their points in the second quarter.
The public is invited to a Transportation Commission meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 18, in the City Council Chambers, 2263 Santa Clara Ave., at 7 p.m. to discuss the final recommendation for the Central Avenue improvements between Main Street/Pacific Avenue and Sherman Street/Encinal Avenue.
The recommended changes to Central Avenue include:
• A center turn lane.
• A continuous bikeway for 95 percent of the 1.7-mile study area compared to 12 percent currently.
The Piedmont Highlanders’ 28-point fourth quarter spoiled Alameda’s senior night and the Hornets’ attempt at their first league title this decade. The huge fourth quarter was the cause of Alameda’s 35-14 loss last Friday, Nov. 6, at Thompson Field.
Jean Cho won the Alameda Women’s Golf Club’s (AWGC) November Charm event last Thursday, Nov. 5, with a net 67.
The flight competitions were competitive in all three flight. The top four golfers in the first flight were separated by just two strokes. Bernice Herzberg and Jenny Bae tied for first place with matching net 72s. Nora Solmoro shot a net 73, while Debbie Adams shot a net 74 for fourth place in the flight.
Football, volleyball, water polo teams advance into North Coast Section play
The 2015 fall high school sports’ regular season has officially come to a close, and several sports teams across the three Alameda high schools have qualified for the North Coast Section (NCS) playoffs in their respective sports and divisions.
After both teams missed out in the postseason last year, both the Alameda and Encinal football teams qualified for the playoffs. The teams could not have had more opposite results in the season.
