Welcome To Week SIX!
Dear Brahma Family,
This is Homecoming week! Each day features a Spirit Day, organized by USB. Additionally, there will be lunchtime activities for all the Homecoming Court nominees. Friday night’s football game against Baldwin Park will include our annual Homecoming halftime show and parade. When it comes to Homecoming Halftime, no one does it better than the Brahmas! The Homecoming dance is scheduled for Saturday night at The Observatory in Santa Ana.
It was a long drive to Paloma Valley High School on Friday night, but watching the Brahmas play a great game and bring home the victory made it worthwhile. There was an impressive crowd considering the 90+ minute drive to Menifee. Thank you to the Pep Team and Thundering Herd for making the trip and cheering the Brahmas to victory. Following a tough loss on Tuesday against Walnut, our Volleyball team rebounded admirably, sweeping Rowland on Thursday evening and leveling their league record at 1-1.
Congratulations to Brahma Alumni Sahith Theegala! Sahith broke through this weekemd with his first win on the PGA Tour. Sahith won the Fortinet Championship in Napa by a two-shot margin. A graduate of the class of 2015 from Diamond Bar High School, Sahith continued his education at Pepperdine University, where he earned NCAA All-American honors three times as a golfer. He joined the tour in 2020 and has has come close to victory on several occasions. It’s great to see him break though and get that first victory.
I hope everyone has a fantastic week!
