Jane Sullwold held on to her lead to win the Alameda Women’s Golf Club (AWGC) President’s Cup Tournament last Thursday, June 27. Sullwold was in the lead after each round of the tournament. She posted the best net score in the first two rounds of the tournament. 

Hundreds of Alamedans migrated over to Bay Farm Island Monday, June 30, to watch the formal unveiling of Curry Court at Leydecker Park at 3225 Mecartney Road.

The court is named after Golden State Warriors’ point guard Stephen Curry. Curry graced the hundreds in attendance, including more than 30 toddlers who were selected to participate in a basketball clinic on the newly formed basketball court, with his presence. He shook hands and posed for pictures.

Bay Area natives Jessie Stewart and Rei Esaka were the big winners at the See Jane Run Half-Marathon and 5K race last Sunday, June 22 in Alameda. 

The 29-year-old Stewart blew through her competition completing the half-marathon course in 1:21:52, on her way to winning the race. San Francisco resident Michelle Meyer came in second place with a time of 1:25:38, while Oakland resident Flora Lai came in third place with a time of 1:27:41.

Jane Sullwold slightly widened her lead after the second round of the President’s Cup last Thursday, June 19. Sullwold shot a net 71 giving her the best net score for the second round in a row. Sullwold competed in the third flight — handicap of 31 to 40 — with Kay Park who finished second overall for the day with a net 72. Park also finished second overall behind Sullwold in the first round with a net 68. Sullwold, with a two-round net 138, now commands a two-stroke lead over Park (net 140) heading into the final round.

For the first time, a combined Sports and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) program will be offered to challenged boys and girls in the East Bay. 

An innovative program co-sponsored by the Alameda Recreation & Parks Department (ARPD) and BallPoppers will invite up to 100 fifth to seventh graders to attend a five Saturday basketball and STEM series. Full and partial scholarships will be offered to qualified youth.
