The Times-Advocate asked Orange Glen High School Athletic Director Jason Patterson to give us a preview on the fall sports at the high school.
By JASON PATTERSON
Girls Volleyball- We have a strong Junior class with some great Senior Leadership. Grace Bickford is a Junior who is very athletic and who will bring a strong sense of leadership to the court.
Girls Tennis- Our Team will be lead by two very strong players. Jazmine Martinez is a returning Senior and twotime Captain. She is a very hard worker and tenaciously consistent. Newcomer Brittney Chau will be a Freshman and is currently playing sanctioned USTA tournaments.
Girls Golf- We will have an enthusiastic group of Girls led by new Girls Head Coach: Victor Garduno.
Cross Country- We have a young team this year, but we are very excited about the talent level. Newcomer Rashad Prince will be a Freshman and he placed at the Nationals for his age group with times in the 400= 54.67 and the 1500= 4:16.
Football- We have set very high goals this year and expect to accomplish those goals. We are a run-oriented offense led by a strong group of offensive lineman. Our top senior offensive lineman are brothers Luis and Diego Mendoza. Our entire offensive line are strong and committed football players. We also have a very talented backfield with Richard Barry, Tyrone Hickson and Roger Rickman. Our defense is led by Senior Bernadino Paz who inspires our team with his great work ethic.
