Boys’ Golf Team Is On Par

The SMHS boy’s golf team has been going to several matches over the past few weeks at various golf courses around the Bay Area. The team lost to Terra Nova at Sharp Park and to Hillsdale at Peninsula, but managed to snatch two wins from Capuchino and Terra Nova at Green Hills and Poplar Creek respectively. During every match, the six SMHS golfers playing that day always line up their bags on the fringe of the course’s practice green. They then putt and warm up their swings for some time until the coaches call the players up. Each player then…

JV Rules in LITTLE Little Big Game

San Mateo’s Junior Varsity football team beat Burlingame 14-7 at the annual LITTLE Little Big Game, a precursor to the Little Big Game held every year since 1927. Varsity didn’t fare as well at the LBG, where they lost 21-30 at an exciting and well-attended game Nov. 16. But JV’s win brings hope that we’ll be taking home the Paw again sometime in the next few years. Pictured here is defensive tackle Nilsson Vasquez, son of SMHS teacher Heather Vasquez, surrounded by his family, including his brother, sister, and grandparents and cousins who came up from Gilroy to watch the…

Q&A With Coach Scheller

Q: How are you preparing for the Little Big Game? A: Right now, we’re in season, so every week is another week to prepare for Burlingame, but we have other opponents first.

I think as we get closer to the Little Big Game, it starts getting a little bit more intense because of all the rivalry. Q: What do you think of Burlingame?…

Sebastian Lee: Speedy SM Stud

Sebastian genuinely loves cross country for many reasons, including the fact that it is very beneficial. “One of the first things I can say is that it’s healthy. I mean, you’re out there running five or six miles a day. It’s great. It’s a feel good sport, you have a great team, great running, great training, great coach, it’s a great experience,” he said proudly. Although cross country might seem like a “solo sport”, as Sebastian describes it, it does involve teamwork and encouragement. “At practices, we always push each other.
