SMHS Varsity Football Team is off to a Good Start

Our Bearcat football players are off to a good season with two wins and two losses at press time and a great attitude. “This team has a unique bond that is hard to explain. They are dedicated and passionate about representing San Mateo,” said varsity coach Jeff Scheller. “They are getting along great, they help each other out on the field and off.” San Mateo won its first game against South San Francisco High School, crushing the opponent with a final score of 41 to 28 on August 26. The second game, though, against Aragon High School, shocked the crowd….

Colin Kaepernick’s Protest Causes National Outrage

NFL quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick sat during the US national anthem, “Star-Spangled Banner.” The act caused a nationwide outrage. Kaepernick said to CNN, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.” This statement quickly turned him into a target of the media. Famous athletes…

Sunday is Fantasy Day!

  For those of you who aren’t familiar, Fantasy Football is a statistical game in which players compete against each other by managing their own teams of real National Football League players elected from American football teams. There are three steps to begin your fantasy extravaganza. First, create a league. Your league can consist of four to 24 people. The most commonly used league is the 12-man league. Gather a group of friends, enemies, co-workers, bosses, girlfriends, boyfriends, and form your league. Second, choose the type of league. The two most common leagues are the head-to-head league and the total…

Splashing Into a New Season

Our Bearcats are preparing for another water polo season, strapping on their caps and jumping into the deep end. The girls and boys water polo teams are back and are preparing for a season full of competition. Our Lady Bearcats Varsity team has changed a lot since last year. Many of the experienced players graduated,  leaving the team with five returning players for this year’s season. Girls WoPo continues to only have a varsity team because of the lack of participants. This year’s squad is made up of 16 under and upperclassmen. “We had a good first game, stayed strong,…

Bearcats Line Up for Another Football Season

The Bearcats are at it again, getting ready for another competitive fall football season. After a long summer of football practices the bearcats are gearing up for this season’s games. This year’s team is led by Coach Jeff Scheller and Coach Kevin Reeves and captains are Joshua Fakava, Austin Salvail, and George Qobti. As many key players from the last few years graduated last year, many players on this years team advanced from JV. “A disadvantage that we have at the moment is there are around six or seven injuries from around 35 guys. But some advantages that we have…

Sports Jerseys, Not Souvenirs

Every year when a sports season rolls around uniforms are provided for the athletes from the school. What happens when an athlete doesn’t return a jersey after the season has ended? Money that could have been used to buy new sports equipment is blown away, because one or two people “forgot to bring them in”. UNIFORMS ARE NOT CHEAP!  All sports jerseys vary in prices, meaning, a football jersey is more expensive than a soccer jersey, but a basketball jersey can be more expensive than both of them. The price of a jersey can range from $25 to $150 per…

Track and field

As second semester comes, athletes can be seen running on the track in freezing temperatures, getting ready for the 2013 track season. These committed students meet two to three times a week in order to ensure they are one hundred percent ready to do the best they can during the actual season, which starts in late February. They don’t only run on the track, but also work out in the weight room because muscles can help a runner to sprint harder, a shot-putter to throw further, and a hurdler to jump higher. Different students have different reasons to why they…
