SMHS Enters The Bullpen

The baseball team has started their new season after their tryouts on February 4. Both Varsity and JV have been putting work into not just winning games, but winning in spirit.

Striving for Their Goals

The baseball team is getting ready for another season. This year SMHS will have both a varsity and a JV team, unlike last year where there was only a varsity team. Ryan Fujinaga, 11, said, “I like having two teams more, because it gives the freshmen and some of the sophomores some time to prepare for when they make varsity. The varsity team is also more focused and more mature than last year, be cause it is a much smaller team, so it is easier to communicate with all of the players.” Baseball is playing an estimate of around 27…

Willie Mays

Over 41 thousand enthusiastic fans attend almost every Giants game at AT&T Park, equalling the best average in the entire league, according to ESPN.com. Standing in front of the entrance to the state-of-the-art park is a statue of a man named Willie Mays. A quick on-campus survey revealed that most knew of Willie Mays’s existence, but knew very little about the baseball great. So who is Willie Mays? Willie Mays was a star player on the 1951 New York Giants baseball team. He is one of the very few baseball players that has achieved over 3,000 hits in a career…

Baseball Season

Baseball has been crazy so far this season. The season started February 16 but things are a little confusing for the team right now because the coaches quit because there were several complaints from the parents about them. Mr. Scheller has stepped up and taken the position, though, making the team possible. The Varsity and Frosh Soph teams joined together this year too, which is unusual because the team is very young. There is only one senior this year—Taylor Sanft. One player that the team said stands out most is Ryan Fuginaga. “He is a really good team player and…

World Champs look to defend World Series title

San Francisco Giants’ General Manager Brian Sabean sat in his office at team headquarters, the morning after the championship winning parade. Although Sabean, and other Giants’ personnel were ecstatic about the 2010 season with a fairy tale ending, it was time to look towards 2011, and The difficult task of repeating as champions was already in high gear.      Although the Giants’ off-season was not as eventful as some other teams in pro baseball, the importance cannot be under looked. The front office entered the off-season with the intention of keeping the championship-winning team in tact, and adding a…

Bearcats vs. Woodside

The San Mateo High School bats went flying as they beat Woodside 16-9 on their turf. Omar Noriega led the team with five RBI’s and a stolen base. Manohar Jois pitched a solid 3 innings as star pitcher Matt Erlick closed out the game to seal the win for the Bearcats. This game showed us the strengths of our batters, but also the weakness of our fielding as we let in 16 runs. Hopefully the team will continue to work on their weaknesses and continue to shine with their strengths.

Boys Varsity Basketball

Our boys varsity basketball team finished the season going 3-5 in the season, beating Sequoia twice, one of them being the night of senior night. Our seniors did show up to play their last home game during the regular season. They won the game with a nail-biting 4th quarter; the game was close from wire to wire. In the last possession of the game, San Mateo ran a inbound play, designed by the varsity coach Julian Hudson. He drew up a play to get the ball to Eduardo Trujillo below the hoop, and with just a few seconds left on…
