Besides football, Randy wishes to have a Rugby team. As he explained earlier, he loves the aggressiveness in sports. He states that he has never played rugby, but thinks it’s a sport he would enjoy playing and wants to try out.
Mr. Sheppard explains that the school is looking into adding Flag Football and potentially Girl’s Golf. The Girl’s Golf season would take place in the fall. He says that student interest is a factor of deciding what sport comes next, as well as the space and transportation.
Samantha Ortiz has other sports in mind that she would want. She has experienced street hockey in previous years and says she has enjoyed it. Samantha is also interested in Rugby becoming a sport at Samueli.
Mr. Sheppard states that it’s important for students to commit to a sport. The previous baseball team was discontinued because of the lack of team members attending practices. Baseball may be looked into if enough students are interested, however the hard part is that Boy’s Volleyball, Track and Field, and Golf are Spring season sports.
These are potential sports that may come to Samueli Academy in the upcoming years. What sports are you looking forward to? Which would you want to come?
