Teams awarded for good grades

The Central Coast Section recently recognized teams from St. Francis and Los Altos highs for their good grades. Squads from both schools received 2016 Spring Season Scholastic Championship Team Awards.

Instituted by the CCS Board of Managers in 1985, the awards go to the top six varsity teams from each CCS sport with the highest collective grade-point average of all teams competing in that sport during that season.

Madison continues to 'squash' the competition

Madison Ho has been ranked No. 1 nationally in her age division since last summer. She started playing squash two years ago.

Young squash champion Madison Ho has learned that the spoils of victory do not include gummy bears.

One opponent happily shared her bag of chewy candy with the Los Altos Hills resident before their first match – which Madison won – but not the next time they squared off.

In this lottery, the lives of the winners only get tougher.

Those selected are “lucky” enough to get the chance to jump from a boat in the bay and swim 1.5 miles to shore, climb an unforgiving 400-step sand ladder, pedal 18 miles on many of the steep streets of San Francisco, then run 8 miles on pavement, gravel, dirt and sand.
