Day in the Life: Carleigh Karen

It’s a hot spring day at TPHS, and students are clad in T-shirts and shorts. They seek refuge from the sweltering heat outside in cool, air-conditioned classrooms. But Carleigh Karen (12) doesn’t dress for the weather. “There’s a reason why I usually only wear long sleeves and long pants,” Karen said. “As soon as you start something as intense as Muay Thai you get super bruised up on your legs and arms. I have gotten only one black eye so far, so that’s not too bad.”   Karen first took up Muay Thai, a particularly brutal form of martial arts originati...

Girls basketball surges past Mustangs

Girls basketball (13-6) claimed victory over San Dieguito Academy (9-10) 65-40 on Feb. 3 at home, dominating the score throughout the game and never losing speed. Meghan Voss (12) scored the first layup of the game, followed by two consecutive 3-pointers and another layup. The Falcons maintained a strong offense with effective passing and free throws. Meanwhile, the Mustangs had difficulty finding openings with passes. After several attempts, SDA was unable to score at all, except for one layup near the middle of the quarter. The Mustangs’ performance did not improve near the end of the first quarter, as the...

Boys hoops scorches SDA in the Olive Garden

Boys basketball (21-3) earned their highest-scoring win in over a decade in  overpowering San Diego Academy (7-17) 96-72 on Feb. 3. Ethan Esposito (12) gave the Falcons their spark by soaring for an alley-oop at the start of the game. Perimeter shooting from Bryce Pope (10) and Finn Sullivan (11) built on the lead and the crowd erupted when Esposito stole the ball on one end and dunked on the other end for a 23-10 Falcon lead. Tight Falcon defense forced SDA into tough shots, messy play and a low scoring first quarter. The Mustangs caught the Falcons off guard at the start of the second quarter after th...

Sports Corner: February

To the disappointment of San Diego football fans, no “Save Our Bolts” poster was enough to stop the Chargers from moving to Los Angeles. That is because on Jan. 12 2017, Chargers owner Dean Spanos thought it would be best for the Chargers to bolt from “The Q” to Los Angeles. Yes, the Rams’ 2015 move may make hopping cities seem like a regular thing for NFL teams. And yes, the numbers may say that there is money for a new Los Angeles stadium. But, Spanos, moving the Chargers 100 miles north is the wrong decision. The Chargers will be lucky to be a top five f...

Falcons soar past Ravens 3-2

Boys soccer (12-5-2) edged out Canyon Crest Academy (8-7-4) 3-2 on Feb. 7. The Falcons started off with possession of the ball and were able to maintain control for the first 10 minutes. The Ravens had trouble keeping up with the pace of the Falcons, unable to penetrate their offensive front. Four minutes into the game, Drew Young (12) shot the ball into the net and scored the first goal of the night for TPHS. The ball was then turned over to the Ravens, but the Falcons regained possession almost immediately. Two minutes later, the Falcon offense surrounded the Ravens’ goalie, and Reagan Sherlock (12) passed to J...
