Alameda High School (AHS) will celebrate its first AHS Athletic Hall of Fame class with a ceremony at the Alameda Elks Lodge on June 10. The Athletic Hall of Fame will recall the accomplishments of athletes from the school’s 143 year history. 

The school will induct 10 athletes into its first Hall of Fame. The athletes chosen had storied athletic careers in high school, college and/or professionally. 

Dick Bartell spent 18 years in the major leagues. He was chosen as the National League shortstop in the very first All Star game in 1933. 


Alameda High School baseball coach Ken Arnerich was presented the 2017 North Coast Section (NCS) Honor Coach award Tuesday, May 9, for his outstanding accomplishments as a coach. 

Arnerich is a 14-year varsity baseball coach at Alameda High. He has taught baseball skills to and coached many outstanding players. His teams have always been competitive, with seven appearances in the semifinal and championship rounds of the NCS baseball tournament. 

An Alameda teenager took part in an Arena Pro U.S. Swimming exhibition in Santa Clara June 3 through 5. 

Alameda High School senior Catherine Boles competed in three events at the renowned swimming exhibition event. She took part in the 100-meter freestyle, the 100-meter backstroke and the 200-meter freestyle. 

Boles, 17, finished in 56th place out of 94 competitors in the 100-meter freestyle preliminary round. She finished the meet in 1:00.04. However, her time was not good enough to make the final round. 

While Alameda’s local schools are friendly rivals for sure, the class presidents representing the student leadership of Alameda, Encinal and St. Joseph high schools have teamed up to hold an affordable prom dress sale. The trio: Emily Rentschler of Encinal, Marisa Woo of Alameda High and Marissa Murphy of St. Joe’s invite students to find affordable dresses and possibly win a free prom ticket just for showing up.

The sale will be held this Saturday, March 8, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Alameda High New Gym at 2200 Central Ave.
