St. Joseph Notre Dame (SJND) women’s tennis sister duo Aysha and Azaria Hayes won the North Coast Section (NCS) Div. II women’s doubles championship in a three-set match last Wednesday, Nov. 16.
The siblings defeated Sophia Landes and Hanna Marcus of Piedmont in the final at the Harbor Bay Club.

The St. Joseph Notre Dame women’s cross country team took home the Bay Cities League East regional championship, while the men’s team finished in second place on Tuesday, Nov. 8, at Joaquin Miller Park in Oakland.

The Alameda High football team seniors were given a jovial sendoff after winning its regular season finale and presumably final home game on Senior Night 22-20 over Hayward last Friday at Thompson Field.
Hayward quarterback Ramon Barraza hit Donovan Survine in the front left corner from 27 yards out to bring the Farmers within two of the Hornets, with under a minute to play. However, the Farmers were penalized for excessive celebration after the play, which pushed Hayward’s two-point conversion attempt back to the 18-yard line.
A St. Joseph Notre Dame (SJND) track-and-field athlete completed an impressive 2015-2016 season with a California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) title in the men’s 3,200-meter race, last Saturday, June 4.
