PFT on May 23 and 30

The next two PFT sessions (the 23rd and the 30th) will be full PFT tests and then we'll make the selections for summer camp based on performance.  We can then assign mentors to each successful candidate so they can begin working on earning their $100 earnest money. Remember, we have six camp slots, with one alternate.  So practice those pull-ups, push-ups, sit-ups and mile run!!  

Again, summer camp at Camp Pendleton begins July 23 with graduation on August 1.

2013 Devil Pup Micah Alba

Excerpt from Sunday's Spectrum 3 May 2015
SC wins season title, Micah Alba wins tourney singles

Desert Hills and Snow Canyon met up in four of the five finals at the Region 9 tennis meet Saturday morning at Tonaquint, but it was Dixie's Micah Alba who stole the show.  Alba, the only finalist who wasn't a Thunder or a Warrior, won a thrilling match over Desert Hills' Gabe Anderson in the first singles championship, 7-6 (3), 4-6, 7-5.  The region tournament was solely for individual region championships and state seeding; no team champion was announced. Rather, Snow Canyon won the team region championship based on regular season results.

While Desert Hills and Snow Canyon split 2-2 in their finals matchups, only Desert Hills had finalists in every competition.  Alba, the owner of a serve that often whizzes past opponents and has so much pace that it got stuck in the net several times, broke serve at 4-4 in the third set and needed to just hold serve to prevail.  But Anderson played tenaciously and won the game, only for Alba to turn around and break serve again.  Once again, though, Alba's potential match-winning service turn went poorly, and he found himself down 40-love.  But Alba battled back to tie the game--despite his shoe on one of the points.

On matchpoint, Alba tucked one of his fastball serves into the corner of the service court. Anderson moved quickly to return it; then Alba smashed a shot to the middle of the court. Anderson was forced to scramble and his return shot fell out of bounds, giving Alba the match.  "We spend a lot of time at Bloomington Country Club working on pressure points," Alba said of closing out the match. "It wasn't anything I hadn't experienced before."  Alba was quick to compliment Anderson on his play. "He's an all-around good player," Alba said. "He knows how to focus on good points, which is why he was able to come back on me (at the end of the third set)."  It was Alba's third time winning region but his first time prevailing in first singles and taking the title of region's best player. 

Here's Micah as a Devil Pup:

Rummage Sale Success

This year's rummage sale was cool - quite cool - and rainy!  We gave in to the heavy sprinkles at 12:30 having gained around $680.  All the Pup candidates were there to help us sell (they can be quite persuasive) and, since there were more helpers than customers most of the time, the candidates engaged in a game - those who dropped the ball had to do push-ups or pull-ups.  Gotta love those types of games!  Thank you, Lin's Market, for the use of your parking lot for our sale.
