With 2016 rapidly coming to a close, the Alameda Sun looks back over the top news stories in Alameda this past year. This week will cover January through June and next week will feature news from July through December.

January
The Water Emergency Transportation Authority worked to have a new dock for harbor seals delivered to Alameda Point in April, ahead of the start of construction for the ferry maintenance terminal. The maintenance facility’s berthing dock would displace the seals’ previous resting spot.

 

Part One
The year is winding to a close so it is a good time to review the major feats acheived by Alameda student athletes in their respective sports over the first half of the year.

Basketball
As is often the case the St. Joseph Notre Dame (SJND) men’s basketball team was the premiere basketball team on the Island. The SJND Pilots once again were crowned state champions after they defeated St. Bernard of Playa del Rey 55-50 on March 24, in the California Interscholastic Federation Div. V title game.
