Girls Track: Panther Invitational Recap

2/15

The Girls Track and Field team traveled to Ridgeview HS last week Thursday
to compete against 8 other schools in the Panther Invitational. It was the
first meet of the year. With just three practices under their belts, the
girls did not disappoint.

Oceana Brown and Zoe Wilson stole the show with their performances in the
100 meter sprint and 1600 meter run, respectively.

Oceana captured first place in the 100 meter sprint clocking in at 13.11
seconds. Not only she was the fastest in the field of 30, but also the
youngest. Oceana is already making a name for herself and is on track for
a bright future!

Zoe, a first-year member of the team and a multi-sport athlete, who is
completely blind, used a cane to run the mile in 7 minutes and 33 seconds.
This is nothing short of miraculous as she ran 3/4 of a lap without her
cane after dropping it near the
halfway point of the race. Poor track conditions played a factor but
luckily, the cane was returned to her by a spectator and she was able to
finish the race with flying colors. She may have placed 11th out of 17 but
she captured 1st place in the hearts
of the many athletes and fans who were cheering her on. Definitely a
goosebump moment and one I’ll never forget! Zoe is the epitome of Courage
and Never Quit!!

Assistant coach Von Bursdall and I liked what we saw from our speedsters
in the sprinting relay events as we placed 3rd and 5th in the 4x100m and
4x400m, respectively. With practice and hard work, and Olivia Brown back
in the mix, it will only get better
from here on out.

Rookies Pinen Deshi (100, 4×100, 4×400), Katrina Kalis (1600), Nikayla
Merced (400), and Samantha Suarez (Shot Put, Discus) had the opportunity
to get their feet wet. The sky’s the limit for these girls!

Our next two meets are at home, and the dates and times are as follows:
March 5 and 8 @ 3pm. Come one, come all!

Fremont sports

he Boys Basketball team ended their season during the BCL Playoffs last
week and the Girls Basketball team won the BCL Championship and broke a
school record with 22 wins in a season.  Girls basketball will continue
their season at the Northern Coast Section Playoffs in which we are the
number 3 seed and slated to host the first two games.

For our Wrestling team, Cruz Ascencio went 2nd place in the MVAL League
tournament in the weight class of 106 and will be the lone CSD
representative at the NCS this weekend as the number 5 seed.  Open the
attached brackets and lets rally up behind the teams for what should be
another exciting postseason run!

Athlete of the Week – JARON LEMASTER.  Our sophomore rising guard on the
JV Basketball team has willingly filled in for Varsity on a few occasions
this year.  When the team became shorthanded in the league playoffs, Jaron
not only stepped in to learn some new plays and fit in his role in but he
actually played the entire game last Saturday.  Congratulations!

Idaho girls’ basketball

part of newspaper story

a girls basketball team that won its first basketball game (and its
second) in a decade.

note:
way back in the late eighties, the basketball team only had five girls.
The 5th girl badly hurt her knee in the game just before the Holiday
Season. If she couldn’t play after the Holidays, the season would have
been cancelled. The injured girl came back with a brace on her knee,
and practically limped her way for the remainder of the season. The
team won several games, making the season a success. The team’s
best player eventually played at Gallaudet.

inducted into county hall of fame

Johnny Olinger, who quarterbacked the Virginia School for the
Deaf and Blind football team to an unbeaten 10-0-0 record
in the 1969 season, has been inducted into the Smyth County
Hall of Fame.

Art Kruger, the Deaf American magazine sports editor was
faced with a difficult choice – which team was better as
the Team of the Year, 10-0-0 Virginia or 9-0-0 Illinois
School for the Deaf. He simply chose both schools to share
the Team of the Year honor.

Both schools did not face each other that season. Illinois
did defeat Virginia 73-0 in that season, but it was
Virginia High School (hearing) and not Virginia School
for the Deaf and Blind!
