The St. Joseph Notre Dame (SJND) high school spring sports regular season came to a close last week, but several teams are playing in league tournaments.

The SJND men’s basketball team (14-13 overall) took on El Cerrito on Tuesday, Feb. 17, in the Tri-County Athletic League (TCAL) semifinal. The Pilots downed St. Mary’s of Albany 61-39 in the first round on Friday, Feb. 13. If they win they will face the winner of St. Patrick/St. Vincent of Vallejo and Salesian of Richmond on Feb. 20.

SJND Pilots

The St. Joseph Notre Dame (SJND) men’s soccer team heads into postseason play as the only team among Alameda’s high school teams with a winning record this year.

The Pilots ended the regular season with a record of 11-5-3 including a 4-4-2 league record. However, the team did not end the regular season the way it would have liked. SJND dropped its last three regular season games, each by at least four goals. The Pilots could not control the ball in the match against De Anza of El Sobrante.

The Alameda Women’s Golf Club (AWGC) held one of its mainstay events last Thursday, Jan. 29 at the Chuck Corica Golf Complex.

The AWGC held a four-man team tournament which pits golfers into a team of four. Each member plays each hole, but the only two best scores of a particular hole are counted toward the team score and the other two scores are discarded.

The teams were broken into two flight groups. The first flight pitted teams with a combined handicap of 62 to 98. The second flight matched teams with a combined handicap between 112 and 157.
