Boy Athlete of the Year

 

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.

 

GAME

Yesterday in school I heard a lot of students talking about the soccer game: Mexico against Chile, and that it would be taking place here in San Diego at the Qualcomm Stadium. Although I did not attend to the game, I watched it at home with my family. Even though it was just a friendly game, it was very intense, and I was hoping Mexico would win.

At the end of the first half, the score was 0-0.

But by the second half, Javier Hernandez, also known as Chicharito, scored a goal.

By the end of the game, Hernandez’s single goal gave Mexico the win over Chile.received_1092236457482408

Kearny VS Lincoln JV Softball

Today the Kearny Komets played against the Lincoln Hornets. The game was a big deal just like all the others. However, since the softball season is coming towards an end, the JV girls are feeling the pressure that comes with maintaining an undefeated record.

From the beginning and to the end, Anya Schultz, the JV Softball pitcher, attempts to strike out the girls from the JV Lincoln Hornets. The girls playing infield, protect their bases. The girls on the outfield have their gloves on and are poised to catch any ball coming towards them.

This game was pretty tense; it was the first time the girls had to play in overtime. Games usually end around 5:30 P.M., but this game didn’t finish at 5:30, it lasted until 6:00 P.M.

Throughout the season the Kearny Komets JV Softball team was undefeated. Sadly, today the JV Softball team experienced their first lost.

 

 

Track Meet

Today Kearny High is hosting a track meet against Hoover High at 3:00 p.m. to about 5:30. Also, today is special for seniors because it is Senior Night.

The senior names will be announced over the loud speaker,  and they will walk on the field and their accomplishments in sports and academics will be acknowledged and celebrated with their fans and families.

For those who don’t qualify for CIF, today is their last track meet. Tomorrow the JV league will compete against Serra High school at 4:00 pm. On Monday varsity will have high jump and triple jump competitions against another school at 3:30 p.m. at Kearny.

Morse Tigers vs Kearny Komets

On Tuesday, April 25, 2016 Kearny’s JV Softball team played against Morse High School. However, there weren’t enough players on the JV Morse Softball Team. Therefore, the Morse Tigers ended up forfeiting the game giving the Kearny Komets the win. Although, the Tigers still played against the Kearny Komets; however, in order to still have a practice game, 4 girls from the Kearny’s softball team played for the Morse Tigers. It was a pretty fun game. It was a good way for the girls to bond and play against each other.

What’s the Big Deal about Sports?

  • Baseball

Students should join many of the fall, winter, or spring sports. Joining a sport at your school can serve as a motivation.

Now you may say how? Joining a sport motivates a student to earn a minimum of a 2.0 GPA. Students can play their desired sport while maintaining passing grades. It’s a 2 for 1. Sports help students boost their self-esteem and remain active in their community while developing community and social skills. Athletes remain in mental and physical shape by staying active and following a healthy diet. Sports keep students on a healthy path by avoiding drugs and alcohol.

Students should always strive to do their best. Although if sports isn’t your thing, then go out and socialize by being a fan and cheering on your school!
