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….

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…

Gearing Up for Another Softball Season

Throwing themselves back into the game, softball players suit up to get back and play. San Mateo High School girls get ready for another year of softball playing more games than last year, and practicing twice as hard. Gina Titus, senior, captain for the SMHS Varsity Softball teams said, “It’s going to be a tough season, we are missing one of our starting players, but we plan to go out and give it our all.” Titus is the starting pitcher for the team, and is ready to lead the team to victory. “I’ve been playing since I was four, and…

Girls Varsity Swimming PAL Champions

San Mateo’s girls’ varsity swim team capped off their brilliant undefeated season last spring with the best win of them all, the PAL Championships. In what turned out to be an exciting race to the finish, the Bearcat girls won the meet with 226 points, a close call of 7 points to second place El Camino’s 219. Even more surprising, the team accomplished this with only two first place finishes out of eleven total events. The top three teams, San Mateo, El Camino, and Hillsdale, knotted very closely in the standings during event 45, the 400-yard freestyle, our girls’ third…

Football Final Season Overview

The SMHS varsity football team finished off their season 4-1 with their final game against El Camino at the last home game. The Bearcats played their heart out because this final win would give them the possibibly of going to CCS. The only condition for this to occur would be for Capuchinoto lose their next two games. But with the best runningback in the peninsula, with almost 2800 rushing yards, this seemed impossible. Capuchino was the only team to keep the Bearcats from having a undefeated league season.The final home game for the seniors was  by far the best way…

SMHS Football Gives It All Against Longtime Rival

The SMHS Varsity Football Team played an immense game against their secondary rivals, the Dons, at Aragon High school, on Sept 7, but ended losing 21-40. With multiple senior players injured, the Bearcats were still able to play their hearts out each and every quarter with one hundred percent effort. A few mistakes took this game in the wrong direction, but the varsity football team is ready to learn from those mistakes and hopefully win their first home blackout game. With the 1st kick off, Julius Elzie, one of the quickest kids in PAL Division was able to make an…
