(4-0-2) Our Boy's Varsity Soccer team finished 2nd place in the Paso Robles tournament over the weekend. They lost by PKs in the Championship game vs. Dos Pueblos. Unfortunately, we had a 2-0 lead late in the game, but gave up two quick goals and lost. However, if you lose in tournament play by PKS it is still considered a tie by CIF overall standings. The boys recovered from that loss with a nice 1-0 victory over Santa Ynez at Santa Ynez. Over all our boys at all 3 levels have not lost a game this season. A couple of ties but no loses. The program is looking elite once again.
(2-0-2) Our Girls soccer program is holding their own. This week they tied Templeton 0-0 which is a good thing because Templeton is considered one of the better teams in the area and is in a higher league than us. A 75% winning percentage meets our goal.
The girls and the Boys wrestling team went to Arroyo Grande last night and swept. The boys JV won 60-16, Girls Varsity won 30-18 and the boys Varsity won 51-30. For you wrestling people the Varsity boys won 6 and lost 5 head-to-head matches, thus a true victory.
(6-3) Girls Basketball after a somewhat slowly start the girls have won 4 straight with a big win vs Atascadero 57 -29. This game was over after the 1st quarter. Our girls clearly were the better team on this night. If they can keep it together and work as a team, they have the potential to be a very good team.
(3-3) The Boys Basketball team have won their last 3 games as well. Last night they handled as they should Coast Union 71-21. We are who we are. As Coach Yamate says, 3 is more than 2. If we make shots, we can play with anyone. Also, one of our boys Johnathan Lupercio won the Roundtable Male Athlete of the week.
As you can see Santa Maria Athletics is no longer everyone's punching bag. This doesn't happen overnight. Thanks to a lot of people in the past several years Santa Maria Athletics has come a long way. Last night I gave out 26 Scholar Athletes patches to our boys and girls Cross Country team. Not only are we getting things done on the field, but in the classroom as well. The work never stops. Like in the classroom challenges to motivate, build relationships, develop, and find creative ways to teach are always a work in progress. Thank you all for your support and I wish all of you a wonderful break and Merry Christmas!

We are having a nice week.
Boys JV and Frosh Soccer teams went undefeated in the Lompoc Tournament with a combined 5-0-1 Record. Nice job.
Girls Soccer dominated Laguna Blanca and had an impressive 1-1 Tie vs. Atascadero.
Girls Wrestling won the Lompoc Wrestling Tournament.
Boys and Girls Wrestling had a nice showing and hosted the Novice wrestling tournament here at Santa Maria. Nice job Coach Silva.
Girls basketball held their own but went 1-3 in the tournament. Although they had two key girls missing, they still performed well, and the best is yet to come.
The Boys JV wrestling team went 4-0 in the Santa Ynez duals tournament and in our own Novice Tournament, our Novice boys and Girls wrestlers finished in 2nd out of 12 teams. Great start to our Winter Sport Teams.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Boys Basketball had this week off and will be ready to go this coming week.
Attached is the schedule for next week. It is a very busy schedule once again. This is the busy time of the year for Athletics.
I don't say this lightly, but if you missed the Hall of Fame/Home Football game vs. Pioneer Valley then you arguably missed one of the most amazing evenings in this school's History. The Saint greats came back home for an evening and had a blast. The HOF dinner served by FFA, the VIP area, and then a smackdown on Pioneer Valley was icing on the cake. The kids truly fed off the energy of the HOFers and played their best game of the year by far. The night would not have been nearly as wonderful if it wasn't for the two awesome selfless ladies volunteering their time, Monica Garcia, and Betty Gamiz. THANK YOU!
This week around 2pm you might have noticed a busy pool area. This week Santa Maria hosted the Ocean League Championship Tournament and our girls water polo team played very well against Cabrillo and beat Pioneer Valley. The boys lost their first and only game in the tournament, but the game was intense and competitive. The boys and girl's programs grew tremendously during the season. We all should be proud. I am predicting good seasons for the programs next year. Thank you coaches for a great job hosting the tournament.
Next week the Football team will play in their 1st round of the playoffs and the Boys and Girls Cross Country team will participate in the Ocean League Finals at Elks on Saturday Nov 4.
Please come out tonight for the big Main Street Classic game vs. Pioneer Valley and the Hall of Fame. Tonight is truly a Santa Maria Historic event.
We are waiting to see if the Girl's Volleyball team will make the playoffs. We will find out on Saturday.
The Boys and Girls Water Polo League finals will be held here on campus next week, Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.
Football has a bye week.
