  • Coyotes Open the Season with a Win

    The Coyotes Varsity Baseball team has had several rainout cancellations to open the season, so they were excited to have the opportunity to travel to San Francisco to play against International in their first game of the season this week. The Coyotes took the lead early and never looked back, en route to a 14-4 win over the Jaguars.

    With the upcoming weather, it is likely that more cancellations are in store next week. The Coyotes are looking forward to picking up again after Spring Break as they look to defend their NCL II League Championship from last season.
  • Lacrosse Teams Take the Field

    Through tumultuous weather, the SA Varsity Lacrosse teams have been able to take the field the last two weeks, allowing them to gain valuable early season experience against top competition.

    The Varsity Boys have recorded victories over St. Vincent's, Petaluma High, and Stuart Hall using a combination of veteran upperclassmen, impressive underclassmen, and newcomers to the team. The boys now have an overall record of 3-1 heading into a weekend game against University High. 

    The Varsity Girls Lacrosse team has yet to notch a win, but they have had a very tough schedule early in the season against much larger schools. What the girls have done is found many ways to be competitive in games, which will lead to success on the field as the season develops. The girls will host Sonoma Valley High on Saturday in a Vine Valley League matchup. 
  • Tennis Team Serves Great Start to Season

    The Varsity Tennis team started the season strong, with impressive performances in their first three matchups.  After having two matches cancelled due to rain, the Coyotes knocked off St Helena 4-1 in a matchup of two of the top teams in the CMC.

    This week, the Coyotes beat Analy 5-1 in a scrimmage before knocking off Calistoga 5-0 in a dominant performance. With these results, the Coyotes improved to 2-0 in CMC South league play heading into Fridays matchup with Tech. 

    If the early signs hold, the Coyotes appear to have a lot of talent and depth, both of which serve them well as they continue to play league and non-league matches the rest of the spring. The Coyotes are defending league and CMC champions, and certainly will be amongst the favorites to challenge for both titles again this spring.

    Great job Coyotes!
  • Track and Field Runs Strong

    The Track & Field team opened their season with approximately 1300 students from schools around northern California at the Big Cat Meet hosted at Santa Rosa High School. The day featured impressive performances, PR's, and athletes competing for the first time in addition to a lot of rain. Coach Bailey Stone was impressed with all of the athletes that competed but gave special mention to the following:

    • Varsity Girls 4x100 relay (consisting of Kate Bruntlett '25, Ally Glenn '23, Tindra Niklasson '24, and Olivia Elliott '24), for running a 54.25 and winning their heat by a landslide.
    • Kellen Kramer '25’s JV Boys 800m time of 2:11. This was Kellen’s first race for SA, and although he ran in JV, he won his heat, placed 1st overall for JV boys, and would have been a close 10th place in the Varsity boys division.
    • Elian Diaz-Zepeda '26 ran a excellent JV boys 200m with a time of 26.21, placing 7th in the division out of well over 50 athletes.
    • Tiernan Colby '23 ran a phenomenal 3200m, setting a new personal record of 9:22 and placing 2nd overall after running his second consecutive mile 10+ seconds than the first.

    Up next, the Coyotes will compete in the Twilight Invitational at SRJC. Awesome job and good luck, Coyotes!
  • Winter Teams Earn Academic Honors

    All three winter season Varsity teams (Varsity Girls Soccer, Varsity Girls Basketball, and Varsity Boys Basketball) earned NCS Academic Championship team banners, which are awarded to the top three team GPA's in each sport in the North Coast Section.

    The Varsity Girls Soccer team had the highest team GPA across all divisions of all sports (girls/boys soccer, girls/boys basketball, and girls/boys wrestling) in the winter with a 3.98 GPA! The Varsity Boys Basketball team held the top GPA in all Boys Basketball divisions with a 3.88 team GPA, while the Varsity Girls were second in all Girls Basketball divisions with a 3.92 GPA.

    We speak a lot about being student-athletes and seeing these team GPA's at the top in all divisions is an honor everyone should be proud of! Go SA student-athletes!
