Our new Team-Directed approach to requesting funds from parents/guardians, has improved donation amounts over last FY both to specific teams, and to the ABO in general. We anticipate continued strong response and our goal is to significantly increase participation (number of parents giving something) next year.
A great example of how the ABO supports and strengthens the Athletics Department overall is our providing $15k to fund the up-front purchase of an electronic/computerized timing system for Track and Field. This allowed the Track coaches to obtain the system in the fall so they could practice using it over the winter and be ready to go this Spring! As Coach Hartford will tell you, the timing system worked great!

Athlete of the Week
Athletes of the Week December 4th, 2017
According to senior Jade Jones, “The team set out to get a bid to nationals at one of our competitions, and we did at our first one.” Clearly the team aimed high and successfully placed 4th, earning their spot in Nationals. Their new coach, hard working Jaymie Guillena, has played a massive role in the team's success as she stepped up and coached both teams, demonstrating her love for cheer. Without Coach Jaymie, the cheer team wouldn’t have come this far and they are very happy to have her as their coach. Additionally, one of their best performances thus far includes the Sequoia performance because both teams performed as one and clearly had a blast, as pictured above. Clearly the cheer team has risen to a whole new level and their success is unmatched, congratulations to the Girls Varsity Cheer team and good luck at Nationals!
