Player Of The Week. Sara Gambetta, Athlete of the Week. Damon Hernandez Honorable mentions at CHSnamed By Charlie Delfino Ashley Evans and Amy Mora - Girls Soccer. Ashley, a freshman, had a wonderful week at goalie shutting out both Summerfield- Waldorf and Upper lake. She had some really nice saves and did a great job disbursing the ball to her players. Amy, a freshman forward, had a solid week as well scoring two goals, adding an assist, and showing her ability to see the whole field with her great passing skills. These two ladies helped the Eagles sweep their opponents this past week. Andrea Perez- Girls Volleyball. Andrea stepped in when a key Clo- verdale starter left with an injury. Perez played middle, had some key touches off the block, and handled herself very well. She proved that hard work can pay off when called" upon. YaH Sanchez- Girls Cross Coun- try. Yari, a sophomore, was the lead- er of the girls team this week. She had started out the season as the girls fourth runner and with a little motivation and hard work she has worked her way up the ranks and this week was the first girl finisher. Joe Carrillo- Boys Cross Coun- try- Joe is quite the story this season as he is a transfer and due to transfer rules has been put on the JV squad. Although we don't usually have JV players on our lists Joe needs to be because in the first three this year he has already pro- duced Varsity course records. Challenge Day could be a big benefit to schools here Challenge Day was created by Yvonne and Rich Dutra-St. John in 1987 to help teenagers end the sepa- ration and loneliness caused by teasing, bullying, humiliation, and violence in their schools. In 2008 Petahima City School Dis- trict brought this program to their Junior High Schools and High Schools and found along with changing the school climate (reduc- ing teasing and bullying) student truancy and delinquency declined 50% while student academic achievement increased, closing the academic achievement gap; They also found reduction in discipline related to student suspensions of more than 50%. "After viewing the Challenge Day video from Yuba City, I could feel the authenticity of the program. I could see it being easily replicated in Cloverdale. Challenge Day ad- dresses bullying, teasing, and vio- lence with a clear message about how we have so many similarities and need to treat everyone with re- spect. It is a cornerstone for healthy relationships and caring. It is criti- cal for our successful survival. The critical element that Challenge Day has is the student participation, which is critical to the success of changing a culture for the better," states Claudia Frandsen, Superin- tendent of Cloverdale School Dis- trict. Challenge 19ay finds the best suc- cess targeting the 7th grade in jun- ior highs, and the freshman class in high schools. We would like to bring Challenge Day here, this year, to the Washington Junior High 7th grade class, and need your support. If you are interested in finding out more about this program or be- ing part of making this happen please contact Nancy Davies at (707) 894-4087.

As far as high- lights go, the Eagles offensive pro- duction was pretty much limited to that single touchdown pass.The point after kick was wide right and the Cloverdale squad had come close to cutting the Lower Lake Tro- jan lead in half 14-6. The Eagles never saw the end zone the rest of the night. Gastineau passed for 64 yards going 6X14 on the night. The Eagles rushing game was silenced by a tough, hard hit- ting Lower Lake defense. The Eagles top two leading rushers were held to a combined 119 yards as Victor Haro rushed for 66 yards on 10 car- ries and Trevizo rushed for 53 yards on 15 carries. Defensively the Eagles have been struggling as well. The Trojans run- ning backs were able to get into the secondary and eat up large amounts of yardage, something that has been happening to the Eagles all year long. The leading tacklers on the night were Victor Haro, who also had an interception, with 13, Juan Galvan and Joey Missamore with 11, and Ulises Valdez with 10. Vin- cent Cordova recovered a fumble. The Eagles, who are 0-5 on the season have been outscored by op- ponents 178 to 86. They have given up 42 points three times and 26 points in two other contests. They have been outmanned in almost ev- ery game this year and yet they al- ways come to play, always play hard, and never give up. The Eagles start league play this Friday against Clear Lake, a team that is also 0-5 on the year. It's been a down year so far for the NCL I South as they have a combined 3-22 record. St. Helena is 1-4, St. Vincent 1-4, Upper Lake 1-4, Cloverdale 0-5, and Clear lake 0-5. The league title is up for grabs,' there are no clear favorites. As far as other mentionable high- lights on the night .... the Eagle Pride Booster Club served up a great menu, announcer Don Good- man was in true form, and most no- tably the Eagles finished a complete home football game without the sprinklers going off. :::::::: Goalie Jose Sanchez about to drive the ball down field.
