It appears only an angel can resurrect the recently canceled Foothill College Circuit Race.

More specifically, an angel funder is needed to sponsor the annual bicycle race known as “The Learning Curve,” which raised money to build a bike/pedestrian path on the Los Altos Hills community college campus.

Rower Keane Johnson, a Los Altos High graduate, is competing with Team USA at the Pan Am Games this week in Toronto.

“Everyone on the team is training full time,” the Los Altos native said. “There’s no real opportunity to work.”

Mountain View High’s gymnasts and coaches knew the team won a Central Coast Section award for posting the highest collective grade-point average in their sport this year. But apparently nobody told them that they won the same honor at the state level, too.

Co-head coach Youlee Lee said Friday she had “no idea” the California Interscholastic Federation recognized the Spartans as a CIF State Academic Team Champion in a press release issued June 16.
