BOYS BASKETBALL SENIOR PROFILE
Yvan Emaleu (#34) plays Center is in his second year on Varsity and is known by his teammates as Big Y.  He started playing basketball his junior year because he loved it and his mom encouraged him to play because he is tall and strong.  From basketball, he has learned to be on time, trust others and hold them accountable.  Yvan's goal for this year is to contribute to the team as a major rebounder and defender.  His favorite saying from Coach Troy is "Trust the Process and Enjoy the Journey."   Yvan's advice to incoming players is to work on their game during the off season, attend all practices and always play hard. Coach Troy said "Yvan is one of our most hardworking players, always pushing himself and others in the weight room. Yvan is a true leader who his teammates look up to and follow his lead."  After high school, Yvan plans on going to college at University of Nevada, Reno. Yvan was born in 1999, so he is a sixteen year old senior. He also speaks French as his first language and played football for College Park.
 
Yvan Emaleu and Antonio Miller
Antonio Miller (#24) plays Forward/Center and this is his second year on Varsity. His team nickname is Tone. Antonio started playing basketball in the sixth grade with an AAU team called Hoyas. His favorite high school basketball memory is meeting Coach Krutilla. Antonio's favorite Coach Troy saying is, "Focus in your head, fire in your belly."   His lifelong lesson learned from playing basketball is the commitment to his teammates and coaches.   Coach Troy said "Antonio worked harder than anyone else this off-season to improve his game and prepare for his senior year. Antonio is a captain and always holds his teammates accountable while keeping a positive attitude. Antonio may be our hardest worker at practice. Antonio excels at defense and rebounding, a catalyst for our defensive system." Antonio's message to incoming players is to work hard and you will get where you want to be. His role model is his mother because of everything she does for him. Antonio would like to play basketball in college.
GIRLS FROSH SOPH SOCCER TEAM UPDATE
 The Girls Frosh Soph soccer team won the Frosh Soph Division of the Liberty High School Tournament - best out of six teams!
 
 
The Frosh Soph team with their medals
After a 1-0 win, a 1-2 loss and a 5-1 win in their first three games, the College Park High School Frosh Soph team was in the Championship game of the Liberty High School Frosh Division on Sat 12/5 battling it out with their toughest competitor Clayton Valley. The even match up, including some good shots on goal and significant saves by both Keepers, kept the score at 0-0 for the entire game. All the spectators and teams were getting nervous that the game would end up with dreaded penalty kicks. However, in the last minute of the game, Marissa Mulholland fired away with a very hard shot on the ground across the goal that was destined to end up in the lower left corner except that a Clayton Valley defender had managed to get into position to kick it out at the last second. Fortunately, Miriam Ramstad saw the defender and ran in and "threw my whole body into the ball" in order to stop the defender's clearance which resulted in the ball bouncing into the goal. Thirty seconds after the goal the referee blew the final whistle and the lady Falcons won the championship 1-0. It was a very exciting finish to a good tournament. Way to go Falcons!

COMMITTEE VOLUNTEERS

Need a little "me time" at home? Volunteer your spouse to help with the Crab Feed! Ok - we're just kidding about that...but we are looking for volunteers:

  • RAFFLES: IMMEDIATE NEED...Everything is in motion for this position so we just need someone to see it through. Excel experience required for tracking sales of all raffle tickets. We have parents handling all the individual raffles: Vacation, iPad, 50/50 and Wine Cellar. Email Trisha Corey for more information.
  • SET-UP/DECORATIONS: If you like to shop online this is the position for you. Sarah has done it the last two years and will work with the new volunteer to ensure an easy transition. Order table settings and decorations and set up dining hall the afternoon of the event. We will supply a team of students and parents to help with the actual set-up. Email Sarah Vahey for more information.
  • FOOD AND  BEVERAGE DONATIONS: Looking for parents to reach out to local retailers for Kitchen and Bar donations. Email Justin Pitcher for more information.

FALL SPORTS: Have you earned your CP letter? If so, that's all you need to order your letterman jacket! The basic jacket starts at $220 and from there you can custom design it. There is an additional charge for embroidery work and to sew on the patch(es). Generally speaking, the total cost is from about $250 to $330 complete, out the door.

College Park XC Team 2015

 

 

CROSS COUNTRY AWARD NIGHT

Coach Gil and Coach Trish recognized the CP XC runners for their tremendous work through the course of the 2015 season, as well as in the classroom.   The 60 athletes received awards for having a combined team average of a 3.67 GPA! 25 of the 60 athletes were awarded for their 4.0 GPA, with some over a 4.0 GPA.

 

 

 

The Most Improved Awards went to Emma Swanson and Logan Heaney.   Both Emma and Logan have set personal records on all the courses they ran at last season. Logan set a new DVAL 2.0 mile course record at the DVAL Championship!

 

The MVP Award went to Kylie Tseng and Nick Chuman. Kylie, a freshman, with Coach Gil's instructions and support of her teammates, stepped up to fill the loss of their top senior runner and became a strong runner for her team. Nick, after years of hard work and unflinching determination, showed us how it pays off by setting personal records and pushing his teammates to become stronger. We look forward to seeing what these athletes will bring to the team next season.

 

Perhaps the most important award of the evening went to Kevin Orellana. Coach Gil wanted an award that recognizes not only the hard work of an athlete in his sport, but also for his good citizenship, for his hard work in practice and in the races, for his work ethic in the classroom, and his leadership on the team. Congratulations to Kevin for receiving the Llacuna Strong Award!

 

Many thanks to Mary Grinsberg and Lisa Lanza for their hard work and contributions to the team, as well as Elizabeth Swanson for the help with the award dinner. Also thanks to all the supportive parents who help make the pasta feeds a success.

 

Cheers to the 14 athletes running at NCS next Saturday at Hayward. We wish you all the best!
