Rising from the Depths: Lady Bearcats Take Over the Pool

It’s the fall of 2010, and the San Mateo High School water polo team is practicing vigorously. Except there’s one thing that’s obviously missing: girls. In fact, a girl’s water polo team ceases to exist. The few girls that are interested in playing water polo practice with the boys, but are unable to compete in games against other schools. Fast forward to the succeeding fall, when our current seniors were just entering SMHS as freshmen. A new wave of girls interested in water polo arises, and the girl’s water polo team is put back in action. “They’re a part of…

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…
