Cross Country

Southern California does Mustangs good

Hi Mustangs/Friends,

Last week your Mustangs ventured down to Southern California, the City of Norco to be exact, to compete in the two-day Woodbridge Cross Country Classic held under the lights at the SilverLakes Sports Park. It’s the only meet of its kind to be held in the USA under a night format. Saturday, day two of the meet, saw temperatures soar to the mid 90’s, which was a great omen of what was to come. 

Homestead teams and athletes had their best performances ever in school history for this meet. Out of over 13,000 athletes that competed, Homestead Varsity Girls team finished 11th overall out of 257 teams, and the Varsity Boys finished 45th out of 268 schools. The Freshman boys got the ball rolling early by finishing 6th place out of 30 teams. They were led by Gabe Rosado who won in 16:32.5, Andrew Chang 26th in 18:12.9, and Jeffrey O’Brien 26th in 18:25.3

Next up were the Sophomore Boys who placed 2nd out of 26 teams that competed. Jared Chan finished 7th overall in a time of 17:13 to lead his team. Sahil Morchi placed 23rd in 17:44.4, and Nate Kim placed 29th in 18:02 to complete the first 3 team places. In the Varsity Boys Rated Race, your Mustangs ran a school record breaking time of 78:23.8 to erase last year’s mark of 79:05.6. Sophomore Ryan Ma placed 40th overall to lead his team to 11th place out of 24 teams that competed. His read more

A real good start to the season

   The time has arrived for the cross country season to get rolling once again. Each week I’ll try to give you a brief summary of our weekend meets so that you can tag along as our season gets closer to Leagues, CCS and the State Meet.

    Yesterday was the season kickoff for your Homestead HS Mustangs at the Ed Sias Invitational in nearby Martinez in the East Bay. We competed in seven cross country divisional races and walked away in great shape and with lots of momentum to set the stage for what’s up ahead for the rest of the season. Primarily for curtness, I’ll focus on the highlights. 

     The F/S Boys team got the highlights going  by placing second place out of 37 teams in a new Homestead HS Team record time of 56:06.8 mins. They were led by sophomore Ryan Ma in a new overall school record of 10:44.3 for the 2-mile course. Sophomore Julien Kehon placed third in 10:57.3, while freshman Gabe Rosada placed ninth in 11:07.6 to grab the first three team places.

    Freshman Jeffrey O’Brien running a very impressive race, lead his FS/JV Unlimited team to second place finish. O’Brien finished fifth overall with a time of 11:57.5 mins.

    The Varsity Girls team continued their impressive showing this year again by taking one the States best teams (St. Francis Sacramento) all the way to the wire and finished second place out of 22 teams with a team score of 44-63, and a new HHS read more

2014-2015 Girl’s Basketball Season Recap

Posted 3/5/15

· 3/4—Varsity lost to Bellarmine 57-37 in the CCS semi-finals

· Collin Spence put on a furious, energetic show tonight for the large group of Homestead fans assembled at Independence High School for the CCS Division 1 semifinal game against juggernaut Bellarmine. He had 18 points on just 10 shots from the field and was nearly perfect from the free throw line (10 of 12). He also had his usual ration of rebounds (5), and had 2 assists and a steal. He had several circus shots on driving scores in the lane against a tough Bellarmine defense and a couple of beautiful “ankle breakers,” causing defenders to struggle to remain on their feet; but, in the end, it wasn’t enough, as the Mustangs fell to the Bells. Homestead’s season is over at 17 wins and just 8 losses, second place in the De Anza League, and in the Final Four of CCS Division 1.

Varsity loses to Carlmont 3-2 in CCS Semifinals

On Tuesday the Mustangs traveled to PAL Stadium in San Jose to face off against the Carlmont Scots in a Division 1 CCS Semifinal game.

In the top of the first after the Mustangs Pitcher Brittany Prock struck out the first batter.  The Scots number two hitter drove the ball in the left center gap for a double, however she tried to stretch it to a triple and was gunned out at third.  This play set the tone for the Mustangs defense for most of the game.

In the bottom of the first, Julie Davis led off the Mustang inning with a triple and scored on Nancy Liu’s safety squeeze.

In the third Davis stepped to the plate with one out and showed why she was the De Anza divisions Most Valuable Player as she hit a homerun to right. From that moment on both pitcher just kept mowing down batter after batter until the seventh.

In the Carlmont 7th, the leadoff hitter reached on an error followed by an infield single.  The Scots then bunted to move the tying runs into scoring position but the Mustangs threw the ball into right and Carlmont had its first run.  The next batter followed with a base hit which scored two and the Mustangs saw the lead they had built from inning 1 erased.  The Mustangs were able to close out the inning without any more damage and returned to the plate to see if they had anymore late inning … read more

Track teams does well, records set

Hi All Mustangs,

    Its has been about three months since I last spoke to you all about the goings on in track and field arena of our team. I’ll try my best to give you a quick chronological update on where we stand at this juncture of the season.
    This year was our first year being in DAL (DeAnza Athletic League) which is considered the strong league. The going was rough all season long as we try to get acclimated, hence our 4 wins and 24 losses in all combined divisions in League track meets.
    At our DAL Champions just concluded on Tuesday and Thursday at Los Gatos HS this past week, we finished 4th in VarsityGirls with 51 points, 5th in JVGirls with 57 points, 7th in VarsityBoys with 25 points, and 4th in Frosh/Soph Boys with 75 points.
    We just concluded SCVAL Qualifier on Friday at Los Gatos HS, and the top 6 in each event advance to CCS Trials set for May 21st at Gilroy HS. On Friday we had 29 athletes that made it to the Qualifier, and we came away with 6 athletes qualifying in their respective events. They are Miranda Zinola, Jr. (VG Discus), Kento Takahasi, Sr. (VB Shot Put), Daniel Graves, Sr. (VB 1600), Ryan Ma, FR. (VB 1600m), Elena Kamas, Soph. (VG 1600M) and Lindsay Allen, JR. (VG1600m).

2014-2015 Track Season Recap

Posted 5/31/15

· 5/29—For the first time in Homestead HS track and field history, a female distance runner has advance to the CIF State Championships. On Friday, Elena Kamas, a freshman, competing in the girls 1600m, ran a very methodical race to place 3rd overall in a new HHS record of 4:58.33, and stamped her ticket to the State Meet. The race came down to the last 100m where you saw five athletes fighting tooth and nail down the homestretch to see who would win the CCS title. Kamas, known for her devastating kick in the final 100m, displayed that prowess and just merely ran out of real estate of catching the entire group by a scant 35 one hundredths second for the win. An amazing effort to see if you were on hand to witness. The top three in each event qualifies for the State Meet.

· Also, in the girls 3200m, sophomore Lindsay Allen galloped to a hard fought 10th placed finish in a new HHS record of 11:09.02, and Miranda Zinola placed 8th overall in the girls discus throw in 112′-07.”

· Now it’s on to the CIF State Meet on June 5-6th in Clovis at Buchanan High School for Elena. Wish her all the best, and stay tuned for results from this meet.

Posted 5/11/15

· The final dual meet season came to a closed on April 27th, and we walked away with a 16-4 regular season record that helped solidify our chances of fulfilling … read more
