There are many indicators that a school year is coming to a close: prom, graduation and the end of the spring sports season. Alameda high school athletes put together an impressive body of work on the diamond in the 2014 postseason.
St. Joseph Notre Dame High School Pilots Baseball

Wilda Moore won the charm event for the month of June by posting a score of net 66 last Thursday, June 5. Moore beat out 33 other golfers to receive the charm. The event was played on the Earl Fry Course.

Bobbie Hoepner (net 71), Diane Hughes (net 73) and Shirley Lee (net 75) rounded out the top five in the flight.

Alameda’s own Junior Meat, a middle-school Ultimate Frisbee team, won both the state championship and the “Spirit of the Game” award in the California State Ultimate Middle School Tournament held on May 17 and 18. While the championship is based on scoring, the Spirit of the Game award is earned from participating teams rating each other on fair play and good sportsmanship.
Eighty-year-old Porter Davis will be busy this Sunday doing something that people half his age wouldn’t even consider. He’ll be running the “Dipsea."
At 104 years old (24 years older than Davis), the Dipsea is the oldest trail race in America. On the second Sunday of June each year, the scenic 7.4-mile course from Mill Valley to Stinson Beach challenges runners with its stairs and steep trails.
