When people ask Alameda native Sarafina Angstadt-Leto, “What can playing Ultimate Frisbee do for you?” the 19 year old has a new answer.
Angstadt-Leto was selected as a member of the World Flying Disc Federation’s World Junior Ultimate Championships team this year. Angstadt-Leto and her team will trek to Lecco, Italy for the championships, which will take place July 20 through 26. She was selected as one of 45 team members from 180 invited applicants.
The Alameda Girls’ Softball Association season continued to roll along with four contests over the weekend of April 12 and 13.
Some big hits were made in the six-and-under match between the Harbor Bay Realty Thunderbolts and Angel Power. Harbor Bay’s Aurora Stonehouse started things off with a base hit, safe at first, then finished up the second inning with an outstanding turn at bat. The Thunderbolts’ Cheyenne Caina’s strong ground hit later in the game barreled way out to centerfield. The six-and-under game does not keep score.
The ladies of the Alameda Women’s Golf Club (AWGC) decided to play a Ham Shoot-style tournament on the Jack Clark Course last Thursday, April 17.
The Ham Shoot-style makes the competition that much more intriguing because it pits the participants’ best performance against one another. Each player’s score indicates the results of playing 18 holes as they normally play, then throwing out the scores of each player’s three worst holes. Then the handicap of each golfer is factored in to get a final tally.
The Alameda High baseball team made its way to 8-8-1 on the season by winning two of its last three games.
The Hornets split a home-and-home with Bishop O’ Dowd of Oakland last Wednesday and Thursday, April 16 and 17. The Dragons won game one, on the Dragons home field, in a 12-2 blowout. The Hornets scored its only two runs in the first inning on a two-run homerun by Trevor Greenley. But the Dragons tied the game in the second inning, scored two runs in the third and fourth and six runs in the sixth inning.
