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.

 

The Alameda and Encinal high school women’s water polo teams staged their own Island Bowl in the West Alameda County Conference (WACC) water polo tournament championship last Friday, Oct. 29. 

The matchup was too intense to end in regulation, so it was decided in overtime. The Alameda High School Hornets (17-4) outscored the Encinal High School Jets (17-8) 2-1 to win the championship 14-13. 

The winter sports’ regular season came to a close last week and now its time to reflect on the great basketball played on the hardwood in Alameda high schools. Five of the six basketball teams in the city finished with a regular season record above .500 and all six teams have a shot at advancing to the North Coast Section playoffs. However, first they must compete in their league tournaments.
