Varsity Girls’ Soccer kicks off

At the beginning of the girls’ soccer season, our bearcats prepared for vigorous tryouts that demanded high levels of energy with over 60 girls fighting for a spot on the team.

The varsity team consists of 26 players, 11 of which are underclassmen. Last year, the girls had 11 wins, 4 losses and three ties. This year, senior captain Sophie Calderero hopes to have a successful season and make…

Basketball Preseason

With the cold and the rain in the Winter comes the season of Friday Night basketball quads. Last season the Varsity Boys went 11-15 overall but 3-9 in league. Senior Josh says,“last year [they] did very well in the preseason, but lost endurance as the season progressed and the chemistry was fading towards the end.” When asked about the last season, Senior Austin The says “I don’t think we played up to expectations last year, especially during league, but making CCS set a really solid foundation for us coming into this year. This year I think we are much more…

Little Big Game Recap

Our little big game was an exciting but heartbreaking event. In the first quarter, SMHS pushed to the lead with a 7 point head-start. The panthers answered San Mateo’s first touchdown with one of their own. The bearcat defense had trouble stopping the running and passing attacks of Burlingame. BHS continued to add 35 more points to lead 42-7 at the end of the first half. After a scoreless second half, the final score remained unchanged. Both teams advanced to the CCS (Central Coast Section) playoffs. San Mateo ended the regular season at 7-3 while Burlingame finished at 6-4. Once…

Keep the Spirit, Bearcats

The marching of feet on the sidewalk was  heard through the streets of Burlingame as the Pep and Marching band marched towards BHS in the morning. A man in a car who drives by honks his horn in excitement as he sees the long line of SMHS students marching. As the band marches onto Burlingame territory, the color guard gracefully twirls and dance along the road. As bystanders look in awe at the band, the sounds of music is heard throughout the neighborhood of Burlingame. I thought that the Bearcats would be triumphant in winning the game, as the spirit…

Cross Country Is One Hill of a Sport

Cross Country is definitely a commitment; not only because the members must run in blistering heat and bone-chilling temperatures, but also because it’s easy to give up. After all, running can also be considered a mind game. Perseverance, strength and a strong mindset are key to help you get over that hill. San Mateo High’s Cross Country team has just what it takes to conquer these hardships. “I think we’ve got a very talented team this year, led by our two sophomores, Mallorie Jenne and Alex Wai. They’re leading in times. Close behind is Evelyn Contreras,” said Ed Riley, head…
