Winter Ending, Spring is on its way!

Warrior Good News 
February 24

It's been a couple of weeks of winding down here in Warrior land, as most Winter sports came to a close and the spring sports began training. We had some great moments these two weeks, so let's review! 
On February 13, Dance, Drama and Madrigals got together to perform in the name of Love. The Mads started us off with some great songs about the beginnings and sweetness of love, while the drama club put together a wonderful one-act play called "Why do We Laugh" which follows a couple from the time they are 5 years old to when they are 65. Dance finished off following natural arcs of love, from flirting to frustration. It was a fun show, and the photography class added great ambience with some incredible pieces also within the them of the big heart matters. What a great collaboration!

ASB Leadership put on their annual winter rally, and brought back the black lights for the occasion. Students were decked in white shirts, glow paint, and glow sticks, and the rally was a successful celebration for the school. Some highlights included an outstanding glowing cheer performance complete with a 5 stunt pyramid and a dance 3 performance that highlighted different body parts throughout the piece. Great job to the ASB Leadership class!

Our boys soccer team finished the season as DVAL champions, which gave them an automatic berth to the NCS playoffs. They began play on Wednesday against the Alhambra Bulldogs, and they finished the game with a 1-0 win over the Martinez neighbors. The second round (quarterfinals) was played Saturday at YV vs Saint Mary's High School, and the Warriors marched to an easy victory of 4-1. Semi-finals will be played at Ygnacio Valley on Wednesday at 3:30pm. Don't miss these Warriors play!

On Friday, several of our students went to a district training to become peer mentors in YV's efforts to stamp out smoking. They were shown lungs affected by smoke, and were educated on all of the latest products and their harms including hooka and e-cigarettes. The students are ready to step up to the plate and bring their new knowledge back to the school.

Baseball played their first game last week, and ran to a victory to start their season off. Great job Warriors! We are looking forward to a great season!
