Alameda Hornets

 

The Alameda Hornets and Encinal Jets football teams will face each other in the 62nd annual Island Bowl tomorrow at Willie Stargell Field.

The Hornets started the year 0-6. They lost by wide margins like the 43-0 loss to Dublin on Aug. 26 or the 50-20 defeat to Northgate of Walnut Creek on Sept. 23; and they have lost in nail biters like the 14-8 loss to Washington of Fremont on Sept. 2 and the 21-20 loss to American of Fremont on Sept. 9. 

 

The Encinal and Alameda high school cross country teams took part in the second West Alameda County Conference (WACC) meets last Wednesday, Oct. 12, at Hayward High.

 

The water polo regular season came to a close today, and all four Alameda and Encinal teams have been stellar this season.

The Alameda High School football team came up short in its contest against Washington of Fremont. The Hornets did put up a much better fight than in their previous outing. The Hornets lost 14-8 last Friday, Sept. 2, at home. The loss moves them to 0-2 on the year.  

 

The start of the school year is less than a week away, which means the start of the fall sports season is just around the corner. Many Alameda students and parents will be heading to the football fields this fall to see Alameda and Encinal high schools compete for the 2016 league title.

This football season will be even more intriguing because both Encinal and Alameda will compete in the same league, the Shoreline League in the West Alameda County Conference (WACC), for the first time in several years.

With the dust settled on the spring sports season, in which, the St. Joseph Notre Dame men’s team was crowned a state champion, the attention of the Alameda sports scene has now moved to the diamond.
