Principal's Memo - Week 23

DIAMOND BAR HIGH SCHOOL

WEEK 23 – February 4 – 8

 

Hello Brahma Parents and Guardians, 

Welcome to week 23.  

Though it hurt to see our LA Rams lose in the Super Bowl, last week our Brahmas continued to excel and experience great success. A few areas to highlight include our winter athletic teams, and engineering technology.

Our Boys Basketball, Girls Soccer, Girls Water Polo and Boys Wrestling (Individual Competition) teams have advanced to CIF playoffs!

In particular, our Boys Basketball, Girls Water Polo, & Girls Soccer all won first place in the Mt. Baldy League! As league champions, all of our 1st round games are at home. Thanks to our Head Girls Water Polo Coach Devin Hunter, Head Girls Soccer Coach Matt Franco, and Head Boys Basketball Coach Henry Frierson (back-to-back League Champions!). Please come out and support! Reminder, all games are at home.

  • Girls Water Polo, Tuesday, February 5 @ 5 pm
  • Girls Soccer, Wednesday, February 6 @ 5 pm
  • Boys Basketball, Friday, February 8 @ 7pm

In Wrestling, seven Brahmas advanced to CIF Individuals and will compete on Friday, February 8 and Saturday, February 9 at Carter High School in Rialto. Thanks to Head Coach Andre Bonafe!

Also, for the second year in a row, Diamond Bar high students have received recognition at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) Invention Challenge (click HERE to see the results)! Congratulations to Trevor HweeSean PengJay SiriKaihao WenKarissa Wong, & Luke Zhou for their design and creativity. Team “DBQ Sauce” was awarded the third place trophy for the “Upright Pipe Contest” and a certificate for the “Most Unusual Entry.” Special thanks to Instructional Dean, Gabriel Aguilar for his support of our engineering students.
