Dec 16—ERHS Girls Basketball teams hosted St. Paul HS in the Main Gym. The freshman game was a tie at the end of regulation, 22-22. In overtime, the Dons came up short, losing 26-25. The JV Dons won their very tight game, 47-45; but ER's Varsity went down fighting, 57-44.
Dec 8-13—All last week, both the Main Gym and the Salcido Gym were booming with sounds of varsity boys basketball. ERHS was holding its annual "Blue Pride Classic" basketball tournament. More than a dozen teams competed in the six-day event, which ended with Bonita High School as the final, overall champion. Photos are from three ERHS games: Dec. 10 - ERHS 80, Huntington Park Spartans 69; Dec. 11: ERHS 41, Marina HS 71; and Dec. 12: ERHS 55, George Washington Prep 69.
Dec 10-11—Can you ever have too many Powder Puff photos? Opinions differ, but in any case, the pep rally will be at lunch this Thursday, and the game will be Thursday evening, 7pm, in the stadium. Tickets are $5 at the gate (no pre-sale or asb discount).

Congratulations to Sarahi Rodriguez, the artist of this month's quotation.
Dec 10—The boys soccer teams hosted the Katella High School Knights Wednesday afternoon. Katella was a CIF Div 3 semi-finalist last year, so the Dons expected a tough battle, which is what they got. Neither JV team allowed a single goal, resulting in a 0-0 tie. Varsity was similarly scoreless well into the 2nd half. However, the Knights scored, and soon thereafter scored again, leaving the Dons defeated, 2-0. Varsity is now 1-2 in preseason.
Dec 9—In their 3rd preseason game of the year, ER's Waterpolo teams hosted Fountain Valley HS. The Varsity Dons punished the Barons from buzzer to buzzer, winning with a final score of 17 to 3. The JV game was much tighter, but again it was the Dons, 4-3. Varsity's win makes them 2-1 overall. Varsity Captain and goalie Leonila Sargento has high expectations for the upcoming season: "I think we're still making improvements, but overall we are coming together as a team, and I would almost guarantee a league championship." Varsity will be playing in the Los Altos Tournament over the weekend (Dec. 12-13).
