Half Moon Bay Review


Congratulations Class of 2014. We are very proud of you! Thank you parents and students for your help and support of our nonprofit organizations! Our missions are to serve the HMBHS community. Your contributions have made a real difference to our school and students! Please continue to support Half Moon Bay High School! GO COUGARS! From Half Moon Bay High School Boosters Athletics Corp (BAC) and Half Moon Bay High School Foundation.

HMBHS Boosters Athletics

HMBHS Foundation

A nonprofit parent organization dedicated to supporting athletics at Half Moon Bay High School through volunteerism, community involvement, and fund raising efforts. All BAC proceeds go directly to funding sports programs, equipment purchases, and facility improvements at HMBHS for the continuing development of competitive teams, academically successful athletes, and school and community spirit.

A group of parents, teachers, staff, and students dedicated to the mission of providing support for teachers, ensuring excellence in education, helping to create and sustain enrichment programs, and promoting community spirit through fundraising efforts, membership dues, and board direction.

2 | Half Moon Bay Review [ Graduation 2014 ]

Through membership fees, snack bar revenue and fundraising events, HMBHS Athletic Boosters supports all of the High School’s athletic teams. Here is a sampling of what Cougar Boosters has accomplished in this past year. • Funded an athletic trainer position and facility for student athletes. • Provided funding for all sports teams at HMBHS. • In partnership with HMBHS Foundation, provided after-school tutoring.

Half Moon Bay High School Boosters Athletics Corporation (BAC)

Here is a sampling of what the HMBHS Foundation has accomplished in this past year. • 4 additional class sections: greater choice and smaller class size. • School Loop for all students and their families (stays the way it is). • Naviance: college and career readiness program for all students.

Coastside’s best on the way to bright futures

E

very year the Half Moon Bay Review asks administrators at Half Moon Bay and Pescadero high schools for the names of a few top students to feature in this annual section. And, every year, the students are a revelation. This year is no different. Graduates of the two Coastside high schools are creative, athletic, fun-

ny and, above all, disciplined. Top students are among the busiest of their classmates. In fact, it seems the more things a student has going on, the more likely he or she will simply be good at more things. We didn’t ask the schools for the students with the top grade-point averages, necessarily. We

Hopes to become a therapist after college

armen Contreras is the type of young woman who inspires confidence. A casual run in a physical education class led a classmate on the cross-country team to suggest she try out. Contreras did and quickly became a top runner. When she helped her mother, a nanny, with the children in her mother’s care, she earned some babysitting jobs. So there is every reason to believe she will excel when she flies the Half Moon Bay High School coop upon graduation and moves on to Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont. She plans to study psychology with an eye toward becoming a therapist. She’s also a realist. “I guess we’ll see,” she says with a smile. “I’ll go to Notre Dame and see where I go from there.” Contreras managed a 3.5 grade-point average amid a busy extracurricular schedule. She has always been a dancer, training with the Shely Pack Dancers nearly every day for years. In high school, she wanted to branch out. So she became a cheerleader and a member of the cross-country team. She says she thinks staying busy is key to her success. “I do,” she said. “When you don’t have anything to do after school you get lazy. You think you can put off doing your homework.” Contreras is particularly proud of her schoolwork in math and the sciences. She says she really appreciated the approach of math teacher Janice Burke. “She makes you do your work and expects your best,” she said. — Clay Lambert

aime McConachie is about to fly the nest and that is appropriate for a budding ornithologist who went to the birds long ago. McConachie is valedictorian of the Pescadero High School Class of 2014. She is headed to Willamette University in Salem, Ore., after graduation. And she plans to be busy — very busy. “In an ideal world, I would get a double major in biology and Japanese Studies with a minor in math,” she says. “I don’t know if I can do all of that at the same time, but that’s what my goal is.” She hopes to turn her biology studies into a career in ornithology. She comes by the passion naturally, having grown up in La Honda and the coast, where birds are everywhere. “I’ll see 20-something species driving between Half Moon Bay and La Honda and Redwood City,” she said. It all started with a camping trip to Utah. “My parents are really outdoorsy. So I was always a naturenerdy kid,” McConachie said. “We ran into some bird-banders when we were camping. They let me help, so here I am at 7 years old holding a little warbler.” She was hooked. She was similarly hooked at a young age on Japanese culture. She has studied karate for 10 years, earning a black belt in the discipline. She did her senior project on Samurai and how they shaped Japanese society. “There is so much here that is interesting and fascinating,” she says. “Majoring in Japanese Studies would give me an excuse to focus on that.” McConachie has spent her senior year taking classes at Cañada College. That’s largely because she had taken everything Pescadero High School had to offer by the time she finished her junior year. She went to La Honda Elementary School before attending an all-girls middle school on the Peninsula, returning to Pescadero for high school. “Pescadero was kind of like a road that got me to places that challenged me,” she said of moving on to Cañada College. “Pescadero allowed me to do that and tailor my classes to my specific needs.” — Clay Lambert

Mattel ready for his next act Straight-A student heads to Cal Poly

16 | Half Moon Bay Review [ Graduation 2014 ]

R

yan Mattel shows up for his interview in a suit and tie. It is not hard to imagine the Half Moon Bay High School senior as a hard-charging business leader in the years to come. He carries a 4.14 grade-point average and counts math and chemistry among his favorite courses. He is entering Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, in the fall and will study industrial engineering. He wore the suit for an earlier mock job interview given in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Half Moon Bay. While the process was good practice for all the seniors, Mattel has already won a job, as a busboy at the Half Moon Bay Brewing Co. And he doesn’t need fancy clothes to impress. To say that Mattel has been busy would be an understatement. In addition to his job, he was the second baseman on the Cougars baseball team and participated in the school musical for the fourth time in his academic career. He hopes to continue singing and acting while in college. “I sure hope so. It’s so much fun doing that,” he said. “The actual shows, you get a rush that you wouldn’t get any place else. I get so much joy out of doing that, and you get really close to your fellow cast members when you are doing it. “It’s definitely difficult,” he said. “The musical and baseball were at the same time. I would be at school from 7 in the morning till 10 at night. I never left. I for sure had some breakdowns. It was tough, but it was all too much fun to let go of.” The future is uncertain, of course, but Mattel would like to return home some day. He says he is a small-town kid at heart and enjoys seeing friends everywhere he goes. “I would love to live in Half Moon Bay,” he said. “It’s the best place in the world.” — Clay Lambert

he support she found at Pescadero High School helped to bring Elizabeth Chavarin out of her shell. Earlier in her academic career, she was tentative, afraid to raise her hand in class. You wouldn’t know that now — she is vice president of the student government. She boasts a 3.5 grade-point average and is headed to Dominican University in San Rafael in the fall. She even played volleyball and basketball while at Pescadero High School. “I was shy and didn’t want to ask a lot of questions,” she admits. “But the teachers are here to help you and they want to help you.” As an example, she offered Pescadero science teacher Wayne Johnson. “He makes everything really interesting and introduces us to new things,” she said. Chavarin is herself a teacher of sorts. She tutors younger kids in English through Puente de la Costa Sur. She speaks to her young charges from experience. She knows what it’s like to come from a Spanish-speaking household into a predominately English-speaking school environment, and she thinks it only makes students stronger in the long run. “I don’t think it is a bad thing. It just means we have two languages,” she said. She plans to study nursing at college. It’s an extension of her personal philosophy. “Helping people is just something that I like to do,” she explained. — Clay Lambert


HMB’s Strohm is a student of people Energetic leader heads for Hampshire

H

alf Moon Bay High School senior Natalie Strohm is a human ball of kinetic energy. A top student with a 3.67 grade-point average, she starred on the Cougar soccer and cross-country teams, and serves as a nanny for two area families. And she does it all with a smile and an easy laugh that belies all the hard work. Now she is ready to head on to Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass., where she has a unique study plan. “What I think I want to do is major in people,” she says. Hampshire encourages students to set up their own majors. She plans to take courses in sociology, psychology and even neuroscience in an effort to better understand her fellow humans. “I found my dream school,” she said. “They are educating for change and preparing you for jobs that don’t even exist yet.” Strohm hopes to put her talents to work for social justice and progressive causes. She says she can’t separate herself from her physical activities. She’s captained both the cross-country and soccer teams at Half Moon Bay High School, and lately she’s been into yoga and kickboxing. “Cross-country is basically pain and suffering, and when you go through that with teammates you create quite a bond,” she said. “But soccer is probably my favorite. I’m going to play at Hampshire. Exercise is so much a part of who I am. She’s a standout student even though she sometimes questions authority. “I love learning. I hate the tedious little work you get in classes, but I love the learning part,” she explained. “I’m not an equation person. I’ve always had trouble with math and sciences. I’m always, like, ‘Why? Where did that equation come from?’” She may wonder where that equation came from but she is secure in her own background. She grew up in La Honda and has always gone to school on the coast. It’s home. “Can you get better than where we live?” she asked. “I definitely want to come back, but I want to experience other places as well.” — Clay Lambert

ties. Pescadero High School encouraged his music and let him play varsity sports even if he didn’t have much experience. He took all his required courses before he got to his senior year, so school administrators encouraged him to enroll in Cañada College, where he took rigorous academic courses and fun stuff too. “I took a salsa dancing class,” he said. “I thought, hey, I’m young. Might as well give it a try.” Because he gave it a try and because he excelled along the way, Eberhardt will graduate as the Class of 2014 Salutatorian. He is headed to Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn., next year. He plans to study nursing and get in some fun as well in a city known as a cradle of American music. He will definitely be bringing his guitar along with him. “Music isn’t my major, but I talked to some students and they all said I would have the opportunity to play music,” he said. “I taught myself to play and I’m ready to play with other people,” he said. “I think that is where the magic really happens.” He says the importance of teamwork was instilled at Pescadero High School. “I think it’s important to work as a team in any field,” he said. “It’s good to have your own independent thought, but you kind of have to get over yourself and work together sometimes, whether it be your job or studies or whatever. “I think that is one way Pescadero has really helped me,” Eberhardt said. “I grew up kind of isolated in Camp Jones Gulch. I’m an only child, so I know what it’s like to be by myself. I feel like being around others pushes me to be out of my comfort zone and to do things I didn’t know I was capable of doing. That is one of the things I’ve learned here at Pescadero.” — Clay Lambert

White, Freeburg key soccer team Duo earn honors as seniors at HMB

M

icaela White had no idea what to expect when the sports season started this school year. When it ended for her in February, the honors were huge. She was the offensive player of the year in water polo, first-team all-league in soccer, and played a major role in the Half Moon Bay High School soccer team securing its first-ever Pen-

insula Athletic League title. Her teammates included Kylie Freeburg who earned second-team all-league status. Sandwiched around those accomplishments are first-team all-league honors in crosscountry and track and field. The two girls share the honor of being named Half Moon Bay co-Female Athletes of the Year. “Kylie is such a great athlete,” White said. “She’s everything. She does so admirable on and off the field. That’s a great honor to be paired with her.”

Freeburg expected to play sports at Half Moon Bay. “I used to play basketball when I was in middle school,” Freeburg said. “I wish I could play that (at Half Moon Bay). But soccer is my No. 1 sport.” Winning the soccer title is preeminent among her high school memories. But in cross-country she was the member of teams that qualified for the state meet all four years. There was something extra special in playing three sports all four years. “I made a lot of friends from each sport that

I did,” Freeburg said. “Those are the friends that will stay with me for the rest of my life.” White will attend UCLA. Aside from intramurals, her sports career is over. Between being MVP in one sport and playing on a championship team, it was the perfect way for her to end her career. “If we didn’t have sports here at the high school I would not be playing water polo. I wouldn’t be the athlete that I am. Sports means everything to me …” White said. “I was so happy to be able to participate in sports and have that option.”

Solid list of honorable mentions League, section champions make the list

Athletes helped put HMB sports on map I

t’s easy to overlook Half Moon Bay High School and its successful athletic program. Enrico Nuño and Logan Marshall did their part to help put Half Moon Bay on the map. After helping the Cougars go deeper in the California Interscholastic Federation Regional Basketball Playoffs than any other Half Moon Bay team, Nuño was named to the Division IV All-State team. That was the final honor after being named to the all-Central Coast Section team and named Pen-

insula Athletic League North Division Player of the Year. Marshall excelled in cross-country. After winning the league title and finishing third at the CCS meet, Marshall finished 10th at the state meet, earning a medal. He’s the fifth Cougar to medal in the 27-year history of the state meet. The two athletes share the honor as Half Moon Bay High School co-Male Athletes of the Year. In the three years Nuño played for the Cougars, the Cougars qualified for the regional playoffs all three years. The Cougars are the third public school team from CCS to go to the state tournament. About a month after the season ended came the announcement that Nuño was all-state. “That meant a lot to me,” Nuño

said. “Once I saw who else was on it, I thought of myself as an elite player. That was a good group to be in.” He came a long way from his freshman year, when he admits he wasn’t the best player on the team. “I needed to work on a lot of things,” Nuño said. “All the coaches helped me to get where I am.” Marshall’s dream was to play football, but his size didn’t allow him to play. Besides, cross-country is a fall sport too. He says it all turned out well for him. The individual honors are nice and he will treasure them. But those aren’t even his top achievements. It was during his junior year that the Cougars qualified for the state meet. “The joy on everyone’s faces was really priceless,” Marshall said. “I will never forget that.”

Nuño all-state basketball player, Marshall gets medal at state meet

his was probably one of the best years ever for Half Moon Bay High School sports. Six varsity teams won league titles, with one, the boys soccer team, taking the section title. There were plenty of standout athletes as well. It’s always a challenge to pick just one or two athletes. There are some high quality athletes who did their part to make it a solid year. Here are the best of the rest: Boys Derek Nazar, football and golf: Nazar was a solid defensive back, returning an interception for a score in one game. He was steady on the golf team. He was all-league in both. Corey Cilia, basketball: A three-year starter, Cilia was a smooth shooting guard. He helped Half Moon Bay win the Burlingame Tournament, sinking all 13 of his free attempts in the title game. Brett Berghammer, baseball: A four-year allleague player, Berghammer developed a sweet swing, played a solid center field and was a solid pitcher. Raul Hernandez, football and wrestling: All the hard work paid off, as he was a league wrestling champion this year. Girls Alix Lemke, soccer, volleyball: Lemke was a key player for the Cougars, whether she was scoring goals for the soccer team or getting blocks for the volleyball team. Natalie Strohm, cross-country, soccer: Strohm scored key goals for the soccer team and always finished in the top five for the cross-country team. Carmen Contreras, track and field, crosscountry: She ran track just two years and did one year of cross-country. She qualified for the section meet all three times, helping the cross-country team advance to the state meet. Harlee Donovan, softball: On a team filled with strong hitters, Donovan keyed Half Moon Bay. A solid catcher, too, Donovan was named the league’s Offensive Player of the Year. Marcella Cordova, wrestling: A nice girl away from the mat, Cordova turns into a fierce competitor once a match starts. She won the Cougars’ first-ever section title in girls wrestling.

Star athletes Negrete also played baseball Senior stunned to be Female Athlete of the Year

O

f all the sports she plays at Pescadero High School, Itzel Negrete says volleyball is her favorite. It means more to her than just playing the game with her friends. The sport gives the Pescadero High School freshman a chance to bond with her father. “It’s the first sport we played together,” said Negrete. In addition to volleyball, Negrete also played basketball, soccer and baseball for the Vikings. Negrete is this year’s Pescadero High School Female Athlete of the Year. Negrete admits she was surprised to receive the honor. She admitted she believed there were others more worthy. She thinks part of the reason for her getting the honor was her time on the baseball team. That idea came from her English teacher, Jennifer Freeman. Back in the day, Freeman was a stellar softball player. She also played baseball while growing up in San Mateo. “She encouraged me to go out for baseball,” Negrete said. Negrete played all three outfield positions and shortstop. Naturally, there were some who were excited Negrete was playing baseball and others who were not comfortable with that. “My parents were OK with it, and that’s all that mattered,” she said. Her goal for next year is a simple one. “I want to just try harder in sports,” she said.

He uses sports to conquer challenges Kanehailua plays 3 sports for Vikings

S

ince his freshman year, life is pretty much the same for Pescadero High School’s Zion Kanehailua. Kanehailua has school in the morning, sports (either games or practice in the afternoon) and homework at night. Depending on the day and the season, finishing the homework assignments could take him deep into the night. That comes with the territory. “It’s hard during the basketball season,” Kanehailua said. “We get home from basketball games around 9 p.m. Some nights, I have 3-4 hours of homework to complete.” It must have worked out, as he maintains a B average. It has also worked out in the athletic venue. Kanehailua is the 2014 Pescadero High School Male Athlete of the Year. The award didn’t entirely catch him off guard. But at the same time, he’s doesn’t play soccer, basketball or baseball for awards and accolades. “They are icing on the cake,” he said. The basic joy he gets out of sports is that he is out there exercising. More than just staying in shape, he sees sports as a chance to conquer challenges. “Individually, you push yourself to keep on getting a little bit better,” he said. “Teamwise, it’s a chance to work with other people. You start to build a cohesiveness with team sports.”
