The Alameda High men’s basketball team’s season wrapped up at the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Div. II state final without the storybook ending the team desired.

The Alameda High men’s basketball team won its first NorCal regional title after a thrilling 76-66 overtime victory over St. Mary’s of Stockton at home last Saturday, March 17.

 

Alameda Hornets
The Alameda men’s basketball team advanced to the Div. II NorCal regional semifinals due to the strong play of guard Ryan Cibull. 

Cibull led his fellow Hornets with 24 points in Alameda’s 73-63 victory over Los Gatos Saturday, March 10, in the NorCal Div. II quarterfinals at the Hornets’ Nest. The senior made six 3-pointers in the contest to lead the Hornets to victory. 

 

With winter break over, Alameda athletes are also back to their respective sports teams. Though there has been rainy weather as of late it has not stopped Alameda soccer teams from competing on the pitch.

All Alameda soccer teams have gotten off to slow starts, but they will look to turn things around in the second half of the season.

The second half of 2017 was also filled with athletic feats by Alamedans. Here are some of the athletic highlights from Alameda residents in the final half of the year.

July
Cielo Aguilar won the Mayor’s Fourth of July 5K Ralph Appezzato Charity Event. The 19-year-old finished with a time of 16:01. Mayor Trish Spencer completed the course in a time of 36:05.

There were plenty of athletic accomplishments by Alamedans in 2017. Here’s part one of a look back at the memorable sports moments in Alameda this past year. 
January 

The 44th Annual Elks Hoop Shoot City Finals were held on Friday, Jan. 6, in the Alameda Point Gym. Winners at the event included Gaby Cuellas (girls’ eight- to nine-year-old division) and Matthew Garcia (boys’ eight-to nine-year-old division). 

 

This year’s Island Bowl had the makings of being a competitive ballgame. Both teams were on impressive hot stretches leading up to the contest. Encinal High was a perfect 8-0 and Alameda High was in the midst of a three-game win streak before the game last Friday on Thompson Field. But the Jets made sure any thought of a close ballgame in the 63rd Island Bowl never materialized on the way to its 44-6 victory. 

 

The stage has been set for tomorrow’s Island Bowl showdown between Encinal and Alameda high schools. The 63rd rendition of the historic Alameda football game will pit the 4-4 Alameda Hornets against the 8-0 Encinal Jets at Thompson Field.
