Alameda resident Kai Zarehbin was one of four members on the United States table tennis team that competed at the 2019 International Table Tennis Federation World Junior Table Tennis Championship. The tournament took place Nov. 24 to Dec. 1 at Terminal 21 in Korat, Thailand. 

Zarehbin, 15, was the youngest member of the team. He was joined on the team by Nikhil Kumar, Victor Liu and Michael Tran. 

The City Council will consider whether to temporarily close the entire Earl Fry North Course at the Chuck Corica Golf Complex for renovation at its Dec. 17 meeting.

Alameda High School Hornets
The Alameda High School (AHS) women’s cross country team finished eighth in the NorCal Div. III cross country championship Thursday, Nov. 30, at Woodward Park in Fresno. 

The team was one of 24 squads to compete in the Div. III team competition. The Hornets qualified for the regional tournament by finishing second in the NCS Div. III race.

As senior Isaiah Smith crossed the goal line with eight minutes to play in the fourth quarter of the NCS D-V Championship Game it appeared that the Encinal Jets would eke out one final victory in an already magical season. Smith’s 68 yard scamper brought the score to 14-13, with Encinal only needing an extra point to tie the game.

The Alameda Women’s Golf Club (AWGC) played a Turkey Shoot event a week before Thanksgiving on Thursday, Nov. 21, on the Jack Clark Course.  

In the tournament players were divided into teams of four. Each team was composed of two ladies with “low” handicaps and two ladies with “high” handicaps. Each team’s scorecard indicated one lady to be the designated golfer for that hole. Her net score was combined with the best net score of the other three golfers to determine the team score for the hole.
