Encinal advances, Alameda eliminated

After one week of play in the North Coast Section (NCS) playoffs one Alameda high school team is still alive, while the other had its season ended.

Encinal (9-2) continued its dominant season with a 47-6 smashing of Petaluma last Friday, Nov. 11, at Stargell Field. The Jets entered the contest as the favorite and lived up to expectations. 

The game was never in any doubt between Encinal, the seven seed, and Petaluma, the 10 seed.

 

Women finish first, men second

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. Pilots’ seniors Kiera Marshall and Cooper Teare each won their league championship individual races. 

The teams will take part in the North Coast Section Championships this Saturday, Nov. 19, in Hayward.

 

 

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.

 

The St. Joseph Notre Dame (SJND) baseball and softball teams ended their 2016 seasons with North Coast Section (NCS) titles.

Baseball Team
The SJND baseball team defeated four opponents on its way to claiming the Div. V crown. 

After beating The Bay School of San Francisco (17-1) on May 24 and Head Royce of Oakland (11-2) on May 27, the Pilots ran into Stuart Hall of San Francisco on June 1 in the semifinals.

The St. Joseph Notre Dame (SJND) men’s basketball team took down Woodside Priory Portola Valley 61-50 on its home court in the NorCal Div. V quarterfinals last Saturday, March 12. 
The Pilots were in control of the contest from the onset. Their defense held the Panthers to just seven first quarter points. Meanwhile, the Pilots offensive tallied 19 points to give them a double-digit lead at the end of the first period.

 

All six Alameda high school basketball teams are competing in the North Coast Section (NCS) playoffs in their respective divisions.

Men’s playoffs
The Alameda men’s team (11-18) has been slotted in the 11th seed — out of 15 teams — in the Div. II playoffs. They faced six-seed Las Lomas of Walnut Creek on Feb. 23. The winner plays the winner of El Cerrito and Acalanes of Lafayette tomorrow. 

Two sisters attending St. Joseph Notre Dame High School (SJND) swept the North Coast Section (NCS) Div. II tennis tournaments last month. SJND freshman Azaria Hayes blew away the competition on her way to being crowned the NCS Div. II tennis singles champion. Azaria was dominant in the two-day tournament played at Santa Rosa High Nov. 17 and 18. 

Football, volleyball, water polo teams advance into North Coast Section play

Football

After both teams missed out in the postseason last year, both the Alameda and Encinal football teams qualified for the playoffs. The teams could not have had more opposite results in the season.
