At the Mount SAC tournament, our Cross Country Team had
many outstanding runners. The top boy runners were Phillip Dorado and Corbin Froreich. Phillip is only a junior and he finished
in 16th place with a time of 16:22 for a difficult 3-mile course.
Corbin finished in 13th place in the sophomore boy’s race with an
outstanding time of 17:53 on the difficult 3-mile course. Corbin
won the only medal for the team during that race. The top girl
runner was Alexandra Respes, as she finished in 29th place with
a time of 20:05 for the 3-mile course. Overall, our Boys Varsity
Team placed 9th out of 25 teams in Division 1, and our Girls Varsity team placed 12th out of 25 teams in Division 1.
The Varsity Girls Golf Team performed very well this year, as
they sent all five girls over to the City Conference Tournament.
Senior captain Jasmine Daguia, Savannah McCarthy, Jianne
Mique, Celeste Esparza, and Alisha Aquino all qualified.
Surprisingly, Junior Savannah McCarthy was the only one who
made the second day. On day 2, Savannah had tough
competition but that didn’t stop her. After all was said and done,
Savannah qualified for day 3 of the tournament.

News from the Nurse
Jill Rudolph RN, FNP, MSN | School Nurse, Family Nurse Practitioner & Abby Barbarita,
Health Technician | Mira Mesa High School
Infection Protection: Say “No” to Sharing
It’s time again to review the importance of practicing “Infection Protection”. Have you ever been
at lunch, or working out with your team and someone asks if they can have a sip of your drink or
a bite of your food? Or have you had a friend ask you if they can borrow your make-up, Chap
Stick, or lip gloss? The problem is that you don’t know what virus or bacteria they might be infected with, even if they are not having any symptoms. A person can be infected for 3 to 4
weeks before showing symptoms of being sick, and during that time they are contagious and
infecting others.
Common infections that occur from sharing include:
Cold Sores (Herpes Simplex Virus): These painful sores occur on the lips, mouth, or tongue,
and are very contagious. The Herpes virus can be easily spread through sharing lip gloss or
Chap Stick.
Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye): This is a very contagious infection of the eye, and is easily spread
through sharing make-up (especially mascara and eye liner) or eye drops.
Meningitis, Mononucleosis, Strep Throat, and Hepatitis are a few of the more serious
diseases that are transmitted through saliva. Some of these diseases are life threatening and
can result in long term health problems.
If you are feeling uncomfortable with refusing to share with your friends, just tell them you are
practicing “Infection Protection”. Let them know that you want to keep them healthy as well as
yourself. Remember that people often pass on germs before they even feel sick, and if you
want to stay healthy don’t share your food or personal items.
Please keep the office at your child’s school informed of your current contact numbers. It is very important to be able to
reach you when your child is sick at school and needs to go home or when your child needs medical attention.
