Coach Cassandra Choi Looks to Build Upon First Year Successes of Lady Eagles Volleyball Team

In their first season of play, the AIPHS Lady Eagles Volleyball team finished 3rd place with a 6-6 record, before losing to eventual BACSAC Division B Girls Volleyball Champion Oakland Unity High School in the semifinal round of the Divisional Playoffs.   With its championship, Oakland Unity and runner-up Bay Tech were promoted to Division A, leaving first year AIPHS Lady Eagles Volleyball Head Coach Cassandra Choi and the Lady Eagles with a prime opportunity to capture this year’s championship.  Coach Choi will need contributions from several returning players and a fresh batch of Freshmen and Sophomore players to be poised for success.

Team Chemistry, Discipline, and Stability Key to Improved Golden Eagles Soccer Season

With a varsity team comprised primarily of Juniors of Freshmen during its first season of play, the Golden Eagles Soccer team roster was nearly gutted at the midseason mark, and was only able to capture one win - a forfeit.  However, as the team’s season progressed, the Golden Eagles saw their margins of defeat substantially narrowed, and experienced a noticeable peak in team chemistry towards the season’s end - the school’s first ever Homecoming game in school history.  This season, second year head coach Jesus Vega returns and will look to increase their win total with an improved emphasis on team chemistry, discipline, and stability.

Championship Aspirations for Golden Eagles Cross Country Teams

Second year Head Coach Jard Davis and the AIPHS Golden Eagles Cross Country team begin this season as perennial favorites to sweep the JV and Varsity Boys and Girls BACSAC Cross Country Championships - and are looking to make a statement in this year’s CIF-Oakland Section Cross Country Championships.  This year’s cross country teams feature several key runners, including returning AIPHS Junior Samuel Weller, who placed third in last year’s CIF Oakland Section Championships.   

A championship in AIPHS’s second year as a sports program would go a long way to bolster the Golden Eagles mission to be both a premier academic and reputable athletics program.
