Menlo Atherton vs. San Mateo

“We got the beat, we got the beat to defeat and it goes…” Unfortunately our spirited beat did not save our football team on October 1 when SMHS played Menlo Atherton in the fourth game of the season. From the start, it did not go so well for our fierce bearcats; we didn’t score a single touchdown until the fourth quarter. On the bright side, the spirit was kept alive thanks to our Pep Band and Cheer Squad. When the team finally did score, the crowd burst into uproar backed with the signature fight song. The final score was 6-34….

Blackout

Our varsity football team continues its winning streak with a victory against Carlmont giving them a record of 2-0. Larry Campbell, sophomore, says, “A win is a win, but let’s hope for better next time.” The 14-7 win was too close of a game for him, especially since San Mateo made a few silly mistakes. Although the turn out of people was less than last year, Liza Leykina says there was still a great flow of energy. “I love when we’re all cheering,” she says, “I feel so proud that San Mateo is such a united, spirited school.” Indeed, the…

Girls’ Water Polo Can’t Play

Swimming, passing a ball, and being defended by other players is the game-play in one distressing game: water polo.  This heat wave might be the best time to play in the cool blue pool water, but unfortunately this year’s girls’ water polo team was not as good as some motivated individuals wanted to start off their school year. All fall sports teams are required to turn in a yellow athletic card, which registers you and your team to play by August 11. But the girl’s team, which consisted of only nine people, wasn’t able to turn in their athletic clearance…

Golf prepares to qualify for CCS playoffs

Whoosh! The golf season is already halfway through and the golf spirit is coursing through the players’ veins. Although there have been some ups and downs throughout the season, many members claim that the season has only started. Senioritis keeps Shashank Sanjay in a positive mood even though the team record is 8-3. He believes that this is a decent score but it was really the “team spirit” that has taken them this far. Sure, the golf team certainly has a great run, but teams from Woodside and Hillsdale have possibly denied a spot for our school to participate in…
