Many in the Alameda community were left confused last Tuesday, May 17, following the sudden death of an Encinal High School student.
Giovanni Pulido, 15, collapsed following Encinal High’s spring football conditioning drills on the Encinal campus. Pulido, who was a month away from completing his freshman year, was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead around 7 p.m. that evening.
Two Alameda high school baseball/softball teams won their respective league titles last week.
The Hornet softball team was one of the hottest team in the West Alameda County Conference (WACC) heading into the league tournament. They won seven straight games before they played San Lorenzo in the semifinal last Tuesday, May 17.
They took down San Lorenzo with ease to the tune of an 18-0 victory. The Hornets scored 12 runs in the first inning. The game was called off after the fifth inning due to the 10-run rule.
