Congratulations once again to our very own Jazmine S. (10th grade) for making it onto the San Diego Union-Tribune’s Sports Section/Prep Athletes of the Week!

 

 

 

4/15/2017

Jazmine reached a section yearly best of 19-feet, 1 inch at Saturday’s inaugural Jim Cerveny Invitation at Mission Bay High but considering she’s just 16-year-old sophomore, Devers’ venerable  record of 20-7 set in 1984 may be threatened in the upcoming years. Or sooner.  Check out the full article on the San Diego Union-Tribute website by clicking here.

 

4/5/2017

Competing in the long jump and triple jump at Oceanside’s Willie Banks Invitational, the sophomore took the San Diego Section lead in both events. She won the long jump (18 feet, 9 inches) and triple jump (39-2).

High school Athletes of the Week are recognized through a partnership between The San Diego Union-Tribune and the San Diego Hall of Champions. Check out the full article on the San Diego Union-Tribute website by clicking here.

We are incredibly proud of you, Jazmine!

Eagles Welcome Assemblywoman Gonzalez Fletcher in GPA Style!

“You all are amazing! You have so much to be proud of! Wait, how many of you were admitted to UCSD? Wow!” 

 Those were some of the sentiments expressed by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher during her visit to Gompers Preparatory Academy (GPA) on April 7.  The Assemblywoman, after working at the State Capitol until 11pm the night before and taking a 5:30am flight to San Diego, took time out of her busy schedule to visit GPA.  She was welcomed by the GPA Cheerleaders with several acts, including a special “LORENA” cheer and got a “sneak peek” of the upcoming Motown show that will be presented by Musical Production students.  Many parents were in attendance and they expressed their appreciation for the Assembly woman’s service to our community and our state. Ms. Gonzalez Fletcher shook hands and spoke to every student in the Class of 2017, learning which colleges they will attend next year and their future career goals.  The GPA Family was proud to host the Assemblywoman and we look forward to hosting her during future visits.
