Sports on the Side

Andrews honored

Vassar College soccer player Rebecca Andrews, a Los Altos High graduate, has been named to the College Sports Information Directors of America’s Academic All-American Division III Team for her performance on the field and in the classroom. The sophomore is the first player in the history of the Vassar women’s soccer program – and only the fourth athlete from the school – to earn this distinction. Andrews, majoring in cognitive science, has a 4.0 GPA. The all-league midfielder led the Brewers with nine goals this fall.

Trees for sports

The Mountain View High School Sports Boosters’ third-annual Christmas Tree Lot is scheduled to run 5-8 p.m. weekdays and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekends at the football stadium, 3535 Truman Ave. Staffed by Mountain View athletes, performing arts students and parents, the lot offers fresh-cut trees from Oregon. All proceeds benefit the school’s athletic and performing arts programs. For more information, visit SpartansTreeLot.com.

St. Francis hires Alberico to coach boys soccer team

Longtime club coach Seth Alberico was recently appointed head coach of the St. Francis High varsity boys soccer team, which kicks off its season this week.

Hired in October, Alberico has been a coach with the Mountain View Los Altos Soccer Club for 12 years. He has coached more than 40 players who have gone on to play at the college level.

LA boys tip off basketball season under new coach

It seems fitting that Trevor Naas’ first home game as Los Altos High boys basketball coach – scheduled 7 p.m. today – is against Soquel. A graduate of the school, Naas said the positive experience he had playing basketball for the Knights inspired him to become a coach.

The boys varsity coach at Saratoga the past seven seasons, Naas couldn’t pass up the chance to take over at Los Altos for Bob McFarlane, who resigned in April due to other commitments.

The Mountain View girls finished just behind St. Francis at state.

Mountain View High’s Serena Myjer ran her best race at the right time. The junior set a personal record at Saturday’s state cross-country championships in Fresno.

With what coach Craig Blockhus called “a strong showing,” Myjer finished the 3.1-mile Woodward Park course in 18 minutes, 46 seconds. That was good enough for 37th place in the Division II girls race; only one other Central Coast Section runner did better among the 192 entrants in the race.
