Encinal High School (EHS) has recognized six scholar-athletes for their work in the classroom and on the field. Volleyball player Madelyn Macaskill has been named EHS Female Athlete of the Year and baseball player Jeriah Lewis has been named Male Athlete of the Year. Each award comes with a $250 scholarship.

Encinal High School graduates including Danielle Payopay, left, celebrated their graduation at Alameda Theater on May 26. The Alameda Sun is planning a graduation special edition to be mailed to every address in town later this month. To advertise, call (510) 263-1824.

Vince Hal, cashier at Alameda Natural Grocery, sprays disinfectant onto shopping baskets and carts. Shoppers enter incrementally after washing hands at the portable sinks or using hand-sanitizing stations provided at the parking lot entrance. They are also required to wear face coverings while inside.

On Friday, April 3, the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) announced the cancellation of the 2020 high school sports spring season. 

The cancellation was due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has canceled or postponed sporting events around the world. The announcement means the end of the 2020 baseball, softball, men’s golf, men’s tennis, men’s volleyball, swimming and track-and-field seasons for Alameda high school teams. 

The Alameda Sun shone bright in sunny Arizona where Lawrence Sasaki and friends had fun at spring training in Tempe, Ariz., back when everyone thought the season would proceed on a normal schedule. This is a picture of the group at Hohokam Stadium in Mesa, Ariz., the spring training home of the Oakland Athletics.
