The Alta Vista baseball team won opening game against Southeast Knights. Throughout the game, there was some back and forth on who had the lead, until the very end when the Aztecs took the lead.

Some key players in the game were junior Louie Tinoco, sophomore Kelvin Marquina, senior Eosimare Lomeli and senior Miguel Eguade.
Tinoco was recognized by the Coach Justin Hartmann based on his four RBIs on a double and triple. According to Hartmann, Marquina’s “stellar defense at [second base] as well as timely base hit and base running” were highlights in the game.
Lomeli was recognized for his infield hit and short stop defense. Finally, Eguade’s “solid four innings of pitching got the job done.”
The AV baseball team encourages everyone to come out on March 31 at noon to the Urban Youth Academy to support them in their first home game against the rival Cristo Rey Kansas City Pumas.

“I am Edith Marquez. I am 15 years old, and I am from Kansas City, Missouri. This is the first year the school has cross country, so I wanted to try it out. I was too scared to join any sports last year. I thought I wasn’t good enough to play any sports last year. I think this sport will help me improve my stamina and help me be very fit. I think this year is going to be a good year for cross country. Our boys already won 2nd and 9th place at our first meet. We have very good runners, and I want to achieve going to varsity and running many miles, but first I want to work on junior varsity. ”



“I am Stephanie Gonzalez. I am 16 years old. I didn’t play sports last year because I was very shy, and I didn’t know if I was good enough for volleyball. I joined this year because I’ve seen [that] school is almost over, and I want to join before I graduate. Maybe in the future I will learn to get better. I think this year is going to go good because there are very good players, and they put good effort in it and come to all practices. I hope this year goes good.”



“I am David Portillo, and I am 15 years old, and I am from Kansas City, Missouri. I decided to play soccer because my family is a big soccer family, and I just generally love soccer. I came to this school to play for the soccer team. This sport will make me successful in the future because I am going to go pro, because I want to be a billionaire. I feel confident, because I know I am good and I am very confident. I started at 7 and I saw it on television and I wanted to play, so I practiced till I got better.”
