Wood Middle, Encinal High students take part in ‘First & Goal’ program

Students from Alameda’s Wood and Encinal Jr. Jets middle schools attended the Oakland Raiders’ 37-33 win over the Baltimore Ravens Sunday, Sept. 20, at Coliseum.

The students were able to attend the game courtesy of the Raiders’ First & Goal program, which allows local youngsters and chaperones to attend a 2015 regular season home game at no cost.

The program is in its third year. The Raiders provide local students with home game tickets, transportation and meals.

Bellato posted a gross 251 in three rounds of play — the club champion was decided by gross score instead of net score. Bellato shot an 82 in the final round last Thursday. She won the title by just four strokes over Chewpanich.
