Sept 23—The extra-warm evening didn't keep people away from ER's annual College Night. Representatives from 57 different colleges were available to ER's students and parents. A whopping 9 distinct UC campuses were on the scene this year, as well as numerous CSUs, the local city colleges, and a host of first-time private colleges (Hollins U., U. of Florida, Virginia Commonwealth and U. of Alaska). Ms. Perea, of the ERHS College & Career Center, organized the event, and would not have survived, she insists, if not for the Link Crew: "Ms. Elliott and her kids saved me. They really, really saved me!"
Sept 25—The ASB students decided to organize a rooter bus for Varsity Football's away game against Diamond Ranch. The 50-seat bus sold out the day before the game, and procrastinators had to be turned away. While the dedicated fans had fun and cheered their best, the Panthers were too much for the Dons, beating them handily 47-14. ASB plans to run another rooter bus later in the season when ERHS plays La Serna (10/15). Listen to the Daily Bulletin for further announcements.
Sept 24—The JV Football team beat the Panthers of Diamond Ranch Thursday afternoon in Don Stadium. The 18-6 victory was the Dons' first of the preseason, giving them a record of 1 win and 3 losses. The JV Dons will finish their preseason this week against Katella HS (10/1, away).
