Welcome back, Gauchos.  After a long, eventful summer, we roll back into our school routine of studying, homework, and early bedtimes. To kick off the school year, we have some exciting sports events coming up which include volleyball, football, cross country, and tennis. The school has changed into a new league and added a few coaches, which will bring some new challenges to this fall season.

After interviewing players from these sports, we got an outlook of their opinions from these transitions. A sophomore on the junior varsity football team, Colin Hilliard, expresses his outlook on their coaches.

Our head coach, Colin Tracy, was our Defensive Coordinator Coach last year, who is currently our head coach now, as well as my other coach, Kevin, is a teacher at Napa High,” said Hilliard. According to the varsity football team, they have some awesome goals.

“Our team is a tight-knit family and we are looking forward to a hard-working, enjoyable football time,” said senior Carson Kerrigan. Moving forward, there are going to be some thrilling football games to catch. Cross Country has begun. Garrett Esponda, a senior on varsity, shared his thoughts.

 “Our team’s goal is to definitely make it to State, because we haven’t made it to State in about three years, and it would be great for all of us to make it to the top of the podium,” said Esponda.

This season is going to be filled with hard-working athletes during practices and meets.

The volleyball girls are ready to train and play hard as the new season arrives. The girls are preparing for their next opponent. A player on the tennis team, sophomore Awelina Fakalata, shared her thoughts.

“We have more conditioning so we’re getting a lot stronger mostly and a lot faster than we were last year,” said Fakalata.

These girls have prepared and gained strength and are ready to take on any team. A senior varsity player, Samveda Rukmangadhan, indicated her opinion.

“So this year we have a lot of younger girls… which I am really excited about because I hope that they continue on the legacy even after we leave and just stay with the sport,” Ruk said.

A sophmore player, Suparna Kompali, allocated her outlook on the tennis team.

“I think we all just want to work together and do really well and be supportive of one another even if we don’t win a match. The tennis team couldn’t be any more than an amazing family, I can’t wait to see where this season takes us,” Kompali said.
