2016 SMUSD GIRLS BASKETBALL CHAMPS
Congratulations to San Elijo Middle School (SEMS) Girls Basketball Team for winning the 2016 Championship game. Lead by Coach Roger DiCarlo, these young ladies played a fantastic season with a fast-paced style of basketball that is fun to watch. This is the second year in a row that SEMS Girls Basketball has won the title.
Coach DiCarlo is also the Head Coach for Varsity Girls Basketball at San Marcos HIgh School. He has been coaching there for about 12 years. He also coached at SEMS before the sports program was cut back in 2007. When the program was revived, Coach DiCarlo was happy to jump in and help. It’s been great to have that connection to the high school, not only because he coaches there, too, but because he was able to bring several of the girls from the high school team out to help this season. The program is a fantastic bridge in preparing students for high school – making connections and taking on the added responsibility.
A middle school sports program is not something to take for granted. Many of us remember when the program got pulled due to budget cuts. Luckily, due to the dedication of families, staff and administration at our local schools, the program was recently revived. Please get involved and support the program any way you can. It’s such a fantastic thing to offer to students and it builds such a strong sense of school pride both on campus and off.
Is Your Student Trying Out or Participating in Middle School Sports Next Year?
If so, you must have your student complete a sports physical by a doctor before they can tryout or participate. Please join us at our Second Annual Sports Physical Night which is a fundraiser for our athletics programs. The cost is $25 and goes directly towards our sports programs.
