Sports are a big thing all around the world for all types of people. It does not matter what age you are, if you’re a female, or if you’re a male.
At Kearny High School, one of our student athletes, Takoda Browne (aka T.K.) was nominated as Student Athlete of the Year. The San Diego Union Tribune sponsored the contest and voting took place online. Three athletes were chosen as the top picks for student athlete of the year: T.J. Leaf, Foothills Christian High School; Mickey Moniak, La Costa Canyon High School; Takoda Browne, Kearny High School.
Congratulations to Takoda Browne for winning Male Athlete of the Year.
Takoda Browne is a senior who participated in football, basketball, and track. In the fall, he was a wide receiver for football. During the winter, he was a point guard in basketball. And in the spring, he was a runner and high jumper for track.
Portland State offered him a football scholarship. Takoda Brown attends Digital Media and Design (DMD) at Kearny High.
With all these sports activities, he is a busy person and student; however, he does maintain good grades.
Last Thursday, May 26th, The School of International Business (SIB) and Digital Media Design (DMD) went to the San Diego Zoo. We left campus at about 9:40, and we arrived at the Zoo at about 10:00. At 11:45 we had to meet up again by the buses.
My friend Ulises, Victor, Adalberto, and I grouped up, and we got lost for a while enjoying the park while exploring. When we asked a zoo-staff member where we were–and where we could find the pandas because Victor promised his little cousin he would take a picture of the pandas, the elephants, and the tigers–the lady zoo-staff guided us towards them and gave us a friendly map. Finally, We were able to fulfill Victor’s promise.
We were also entertained and excited by the fact that we saw a cheetah, elephants, tigers, monkeys, kangaroos, etc. that we did not realize what time it was. So, we started walking towards the exit at 11:30, we didn’t make it on time but we got there safe and sound.

On April 29th the four small Schools SCT, DMD, SIB, EID will be having a Kick Ball Tournament. Teachers and students will form a team representing their school and play against the other small schools.
If you’re interested in playing, go to your small school office and pick up a permission slip and return it with your parent or guardian’s signature.
Kickball is an informal game combining the two games of baseball and soccer where a ball is rolled across home plate (rather than pitched) to a person who kicks it and then runs the bases to score.
