Pioneer sneaks past Cordova in Game of the Week Thriller

Pioneer sneaks past Cordova in Game of the Week Thriller

Cordova knew it could happen.  Pioneer had used the play the week before.  But that didn’t prevent Pioneer from using the same halfback-option pass play three times to rack up 95 yards and set up two second-half touchdowns and snatch victory 14-13 before the Cordova home crowd.

Access Sacramento‘s Will James and Jim Dimino narrate highlights from Access Sacramento’s week-six Game of the Week.

Arden Hills Swimming Coach Brian Nabeta Honored with a Prestigious “Award of Excellence”

The American Swimming Coaches Association (ASCA) has recognized Brian Nabeta, USA Swim Team Head Coach & Director of Aquatics for Arden Hills, with a coveted “Award of Excellence” during the 2013 ASCA World Clinic held recently in New Orleans.  Each year, the ASCA recognized those individuals who coach a swimmer to a top-8 finish at one of several USA national-level championships. Out of more than 15,000 swim coaches in the U.S., only 184 received this prestigious honor in 2013 and the vast majority were high school swim coaches. The only other Arden Hills coach ever to be recognized with this top honor was the late Sherm Chavoor, who founded the Resort in 1954 and put Arden Hills on its path to offer world-class swim and tennis programs.

Exotic Supercar Show & Rally Fundraiser Sept 8

Exotic Supercar Show & Rally Fundraiser Sept 8

Ferraris (including a Ferrari 458 Challenge car), a McLaren MP4-12C, a Lamborghini and more will converge on Gold River next Sunday, September 8, with one goal in mind.  The owners of these exotic cars are joining forces to bring awareness to epilepsy and raise money for a cure.  It’s all part of a car show and champagne brunch extravaganza called the “Exotic Supercar Show and Rally.”

The funds raised at the event go to the Bronte Epilepsy Research Foundation.  Bronte is a local, 20 year old girl, with a severe form of epilepsy called, Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, which subjects its victims to seizures every couple of minutes without proper medication and treatment.  All epilepsy research monies stay local, going to UC Davis Health-Bronte Epilepsy Research Program and the Sutter Neuroscience Institute.
