PALs on the Pitch

PALs on the Pitch

By Scott Johnston

Jordan McGuire was looking for a challenge.

Oscar Alvarado was looking for a chance.

Two kids, traveling two separate paths, discovered one intersecting passion – rugby.

McGuire is an eighth-grader at Rancho Cordova’s Mills Middle School. He gets straight As and plays football for the Junior Lancers in the fall. After hearing about the Rancho Cordova Police Athletic League’s (PAL’s) rugby program while at school, he thought, why not?

“I knew it was a tough sport,” said McGuire. “I’ve played football for five years, but this is a lot rougher than that. It’s great for getting out any anger you have inside and it’s a sport I’d never tried before. It’s amazing.”

Matt Foster and Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Zach Hatch feel the same way.

Eppie's Great Race - July 23, 2011

The 38th annual Eppie's Great Race, the "world's oldest triathlon", is to take place on the 23rd of July this year.

People interested in signing-up to participate in the race can do so until Friday, July 22nd, but those who do on The Great Race's website before April 30th will save $60 off of their entry fee.

Participants can either sign up solo (as an ironman/ironwoman racer) or as a part of a racing team of up to three people.

The race starts at William Land Park in the Arden area of Sacramento and ventures along the American River to Guy West Bridge near the Sacramento State campus, then heading back up-river to the Sunrise Foot Bridge in Fair Oaks before finally going with the flow ending at River Bend Park in Rancho Cordova.

Eppie's Great Race also has a special "Kids Dualthlon", which includes a 2-mile run and a 5.75-mile bike ride, for those under 18 years old.
