The 2015-2016 season in Jester Athletics was an amazing adventure as we watched every sport make it to the postseason. In addition, four of our teams were League Champions! Having taken on the position of Interim Athletic Director in early March, I quickly began to see the hard work and dedication that every athlete at SJHS possesses, and it showed so clearly in the success our teams had last year. I am thankful to Dr. Mendoza and Ms. Hercules for trusting me with the important position I hold now, and I look forward to many years to come serving the athletes of Saint Joseph High School.
It takes a lot of work to operate an elite athletic program. It requires commitment and dedication from everyone involved. I would not be able to do this job without the help of my former assistant, Ms. Sotomayor; my new assistant, Ms. Christina Hunt; the guidance and support of Ms. Hercules; and the devotion of our SJHS coaches and athletes. The athletic program is a machine with many moving parts, and the collaboration of those parts is what makes it so incredible.
I am looking forward to the 2016-17 season in athletics as many of our teams are primed for success, with other teams are focusing on rebuilding. It's going to be an exciting year and I can't wait to see what unfolds.
