Last Friday, the Aragon Dons hosted the San Mateo Bearcats in a clash of San Mateo High School football supremacy. Despite Aragon racking up 370 total yards of offense to San Mateo’s 323, multiple turnovers by the Dons coupled with a slew of injuries failed to convert the successes on offense into points.
“When I was eight I really wanted to do something physical and active,” says senior Alex Catiggay. “My uncle suggested this kung fu school and that’s when it all started for me.” Today, Catiggay is a second degree black belt in kung fu, a striking style of martial arts that utilizes kicks, blocks, and both open and closed hand strikes to defend against attackers.
Over the summer, two Aragon seniors took summer training to a whole new level. Seniors Anthony Nichols and Trevor Stocker participated in and completed two triathlons. Both students, after undergoing rigorous months of training, finished both the San Francisco Triathlon at Treasure Island and the Santa Cruz Sprint Triathlon.
