Bearcat Badminton is Back

Badminton will start their season in a new league this year—the upper “Bay” division. Though they ended the seasonwell last year—particularly doubles duo Jordan Wong, then senior, and Timothy Tam, then sophomore, who remained undefeated for the entire season—players are nervous this year. Being in the highest division, Bay Division, will mean going up against more and more competitive schools, namely Aragon High School, Mills High School, South City High School, Menlo-Atherton High School, Carlmont High School, Westmoor High School, and El Camino High School. I just want “to win one game,” said sophomore Leslie Chan, who will play girls…

Both through repetition and new strategies, they are getting back on track after a year away from the dirt. A pre-season game played on February15 against Terra Linda proved a great motivator for the team.

Boys Basketball Going Strong

After a long and vigorous pre-season, our boys basketball team is now ready to dominate in league and come out in first place. After beating the division’s favored team in a 50-42 victory, the boys now take the favored spot. Even though the team placed below .500 with a 7-9 record in pre-season, we still found success. Mateo beat Jefferson High School, a Bay division team, two times, and also beat Carlmont, an Ocean division team as well. Being in Lake division (the lowest division), the team has made a clear statement in the pre-season: they are an improved squad that is able to compete with better teams.

Bearcats Come Close to Capturing Paw

It was an exciting yet heartbreaking weekend for the Bearcats, as we sadly lost to Burlingame in the 84th annual Little Big Game on Saturday. Although defeated physically, the game was a perfect representation of our dedication and love for Mateo.
Coming into the game, SMHS was battling a team that had won six more games during the regular football season than they had. In the first few minutes, Burlingame scored its first touchdown, following it later with a second one that same quarter. Players and fans discouraged, the Spirit Commissioners, Marcello Palazzo and Nicholas Wetherbee, felt it was time to up the spirit. “I was definitely disappointed and pessimistic at that point. Everyone was still cheering though, and I think it helped us come back and make the game close,” said Nicholas. “I knew we could get back up,” added Marcello. Together they led cheer after cheer, passionately sporting the Bearcat spirit San Mateo’s famous for.
