Beasts on the field and passionate at heart, the Lady Sheiks have almost come to a close to their 2016-17 soccer season. The varsity girls’ soccer team earned their reputation in the league by finishing their 2015-16 season undefeated, and even making it to the second round of playoffs. By raising other teams’ expectations with last season, the Lady Sheiks had to battle even harder to keep their number 1 spot. That spot was intact, until Monday, Feb 6.

The varsity girls suffered their very first loss during season and consequentially, they fell to second place, right under Miguel Contreras High School. They lost 1-0, to a single free kick. This was the fifth game the Sheiks have played since they had battled Belmont High School, who injured three of their players, including both main forwards. This loss didn’t affect the girls though, winning three and tying one out of the four games they played before MC.

It will be a tough battle for the Sheiks. They have one more game on Feb 9 against RFK, until they face the Lady Cobras again on Feb 13, the Sheiks’ senior night. It all depends on that last game whether the Lady Sheiks can take League Champs for the second time, or if they would have to give up the short lived title to the rising stars, Miguel Contreras. Come watch the Lady Sheiks battle against the Lady Cobras for the title on Feb 13 at 4:00 pm on the field.

It’s been a pretty rough start to girls volleyball this season, especially for varsity. On Oct. 6 they faced yet another loss to rival school Bernstein. The Sheiks were coming in with a record of 2-6 while Bernstein had a record of 4-6.

 

The start to Hollywood has not been how they thought it would be, but the girls do not have their heads down at all. The loss to Bernstein was a big loss with the score of 3-1. Meanwhile, JV took the win with a score of 2-0.

“I felt good. I knew my team had my back,” said JV captain Stephanie Ramirez. ” We played as a family that’s how we got the win.”

Their overall record when coming to play Bernstein was 4-0. On the other hand, the JV girls for Bernstein were 2-2 facing Hollywood.

 

Varsity still has a couple of games left facing schools RFK, Helen Bernstein, Miguel Contreras, and Belmont all once again. JV will be facing the same teams and are hoping to go undefeated. The varsity and JV girls are hoping to beat Bernstein in their final clash on Oct 10.
“I do not feel nervous and I feel confident in my girls,” said co-captain Courtney Kilpatrick, “and I know when they go on that court they will play their heart out and do their best.”

Thursday will be the last game of soccer season, and will also be the game that will determine whether the team earns the championship title or not. The game is going to be against Miguel Contreras who has already lost once to Hollywood during first round, with a score of 2-1.

The game is very anticipated by many players. “We have made it this far with a lot of commitment and teamwork,” said Ceirra Little, NMA junior. “We are just one game away from receiving the title we have been working for. We are a team and will play to the best to our abilities for ourselves and our school.”
The girls recently took on both of their two biggest rival schools. On Feb. 8, the girls played against Belmont High School. The girls won the game with a final score of 2-0. The Lady Sheiks redeemed themselves from the tied game they had in the first round on Jan. 21, with a score of 2-2.

On Feb. 4, the team played a home conference game against Bernstein and won with a final score of 3-0. This caused Hollywood’s girls soccer team to move up to first place in the central league standings.

Thursday’s game is very important because it is the game that will give the Hollywood the championship title, if the girls win. It is the last obstacle from reaching the team’s goal. This game is the last home game of the season.

After dominating Van Nuys on Nov. 13, with a score of 49-15, the football team continues their way in the playoffs facing North Hollywood High on Nov. 20.

Quarterback, David Rothenberg, was quick to bring his team back in less than a minute after the Wolves’ first touchdown tying up the score, 7-7, and then again later in the quarter giving his team a lead of 14-7.

Going into the second quarter David scored another touchdown bringing up his team to 21-7 slipping through the Van Nuys defensive line. Surmier Cunningham was quick to follow scoring a touchdown during the second quarter bringing up his team another six points and with another field goal ending the first half 28-7.

Not long into the second half Tyree Moore scored two touchdowns in three minutes, keeping his team in a lead of 42-7. Max Perandize had a 40-yard run before scoring his first touchdown of the game, a touchdown he had been searching for since the Belmont game.

The Wolves struggled to keep up, but were able to score another touchdown later in the fourth quarter and with a two point conversion ended the game with a final score of 49-15.

The boys continue to seek glory at the Cerritos College Arena for the final championship game on Dec. 5 as they move upward and forward through the playoffs.

 

Rushing into the sports industry

NFL player, Quentin Jammer was the guest host for the session,”Making your way in the wide world of sports,” during the Taste of Tomorrow event on Wednesday Oct. 14.

Jammer shared his experiences in the sports industry to advise and also inspire the young students that have set their hearts to making it all the way with their talents in sports.

Jammer comes from a small town in Texas where playing sports was always his passion. “There was not much to do. Growing up all we did was play sports,” said Jammer.

Jammer played highschool football at Angleton High School in Texas and continued his career in the University of Texas at Austin. Jammer was the fifth pick in the NFL draft in 2002, and began his NFL career from there. Jammer currently plays for the Denver Broncos.

Leaving his hometown was a dramatic change in his life but the recruitment process was “the best experience in sports.”

Although having nothing but positive experiences his most difficult challenge was balance. Balancing an athlete’s schedule is more complex than most can understand, there is almost never time for anything other than sports and school. “It’s a difficult thing to do. The schedule is hard,” said Jammer when asked how he managed to spread himself out for football and school.  

Jammer’s main advice is to stay focused, never to lose track of the goal which is to be the best. Students in high school often lack discipline and slack off in school, but Jammer encourages young athletes to prioritize and earn their way to the top. “If you can’t even set yourself up up for a four year school, then you won’t be getting the scholarship,” said Jammer emphasizing the importance of maintaining grades to not only graduate, but to earn a scholarship.

Jammer understands the importance of working to reach a goal but also stressed that enjoying the sport is just as important. Without the passion there is no drive.

The NFL star left a series of wise words for the students that came to the session, teaching from his experiences.
