The City of Alameda held an award ceremony for the list of Fourth of July Parade (“Alamedans, Bay Area Residents Enjoy Island Parade After COVID Pause,” July 5) winners on Thursday, July 21. Mayor Marilyn Ezzy Ashcraft presented the winners with a trophy at the event.
Alameda High School (AHS) basketball swept the Island Bowl on Saturday, June 5. The men’s team defeated the Encinal High School (EHS), 49-34, while the Lady Hornets defeated the Lady Jets, 62-48. Both games were played on the Jets’ home court.
St. Joseph Notre Dame High School’s Pilots have done it again. For the fifth time in the school’s history, the men’s basketball team has been named state champions. Above, Temidayo Yussuf and Lamont Banks congratulate each other while other team members do the same.
Even though basketball coach and Defend-the-Rim basketball clinic coordinator Sherman Lee decided to hang up his whistle last year, his legacy still lives on in Alameda through his former players. Several Defend-the-Rim attendees had great seasons on the hardwood this year.
