Banquet

A wonderful end to a great field hockey πŸ‘ season.



The big news of the night is that both girls (by whom I am surrounded) won their respective team's "Scholar-Athlete" award for having the highest GPA.



Here's Jenna's award, and here's Melanie's.

"I guess the family's kinda smart."

Thanks, coach.

Here's the video of Melanie's speech thanking their goalie coach, Tay.



















2021 CIF-SDS Field Hockey Open Division Champions



The Scripps Ranch High School varsity field hockey team won the 2021 CIF-SDS Field Hockey Open Division Championship title by defeating Torrey Pines High School 1-0 on Nov. 20. Scripps Ranch High has captured the championship in the last three full seasons.

To get to the championship game, Scripps Ranch defeated Cathedral Catholic 8-2 in the first round on Nov. 16, and beat Canyon Crest Academy 2-1 in the semifinal round on Nov. 18 – all in the same week.



Torrey Pines gave the MaxPreps No. 9 field hockey team, No. 1 in California, all they could handle, but fell 41 seconds short.

That’s when Scripps Ranch’s Kelsey McGrattan took a corner kick [sic] from classmate Julianne Sue and rifled it in the Torrey Pines goal for the 1-0 victory Saturday in the San Diego Section Open Division field hockey final at Hilltop High School.

You can watch the winning goal here.



Melanie was also selected by her coaches to receive the CIF Sportsmanship Award, "an honor bestowed upon one member of each team participating in CIF Championship competition in all sports."

The CIF San Diego Section initiated the award program to β€œsupport the highest ideals of good sportsmanship, fair play and the principles of pursuing victory with honor.” It is intended to recognize an individual that β€œcompeted all year with dignity, respect for his/her opponents, team and community.”

Let the celebrations begin!













Point at things

All I want from myself and for her is the opportunity to show her things, every fascinating thing I can think of. I am so excited to just take her outside and point at things, and dig up handfuls of dirt and point, and drive here and point, and fly there and point, and to cut her loose with all her chaotic energy and unbridled curiosity and let her point at fascinating things for me.
