Women's Basketball: MLK Showcase. St. Mary's 89, Bishop Alemany 69

Thomas Lawrence, The Record

 

"If the St. Mary's girls basketball team has one lingering problem, coach Tom Gonsalves said, it's having leaders who are quiet by nature.

 

Yet, the Rams' response to a rare home loss was deafening,

 

St. Mary's buried 10 3-pointers and had four players score in double digits in an 89-69 rout of Mission Hills-Bishop Alemany in their MLK Showcase finale Monday at Morelli Gym.

 

The Rams were lagging in the second quarter, as the Warriors (14-4) cut through their press with ease. But St. Mary's, behind the stern words of Gonsalves and a renewed sense of urgency, ended the half on a 28-10 run for a 47-37 lead.

 

"We woke up. We were sleepwalking," Gonsalves said. "We go through phases like that. That's a sign that ... we lack leadership right now. We're young. Hopefully when Naje comes back, that's going to be our missing piece."

 

Gonsalves was referring to senior guard Naje Murray, the team's top scoring guard a year ago and a San Diego State signee. Murray tore her ACL in the summer and is in the latter stages of rehab.

 

In Murray's stead, junior guard Ariel Johnson scored a game-high 25 points.

 

Aquira DeCosta delivered her 14th double-double of the season and 33rd of her three-year varsity career, with 23 points and 15 rebounds. Neenah Young added 16 points, eight rebounds and three assists.

 

"We had a lot more ball movement (than Friday), a lot more assists (the Rams had nine). We just really took it to them," Young said.

 

Freshman guard Amaya Oliver bounced back by adding 10 points, five rebounds and three steals after going scoreless in Friday's loss to Las Vegas-Centennial.

 

"I liked her game today, a lot," Gonsalves said of Oliver. "Everybody did well, and that's a good team we played. A pretty darn good team."

 

St. Mary's maintained its lead throughout the fourth quarter, and Johnson had the dagger with a steal and layup for a 14-point lead with less than 2 minutes remaining.

 

The Rams host Upper Marlboro, Maryland-Riverdale Baptist at 7 p.m. Thursday and Santa Rosa-Cardinal Newman at 4 p.m. Saturday.

 

The whole idea is to peak at the right time," Gonsalves said".

 

The Record Article Features Naje Murray

Thomas Lawrence

 

STOCKTON - She still performs special pregame handshakes with her teammates, wears her black Nike headband and spends every practice, game and moment she can with St. Mary's girls basketball.

 

But senior guard Naje Murray has been hurting - recently, more emotionally so than physically - for six months. Murray tore the ACL in her right knee in an AAU game in July at Oregon State, and is in the latter stages of recovery and rehabilitation.

 

While Murray plans on receiving and wearing her brace, and resuming to full-contact practice this week, she had to sit idly as the Rams competed in their annual MLK Showcase on Monday. Murray was a special addition to the pregame starting lineup announcements.

 

She even forced a smile.

 

And make no mistake, Murray said, she's made the feigned smile an art form during her recovery.

 

Murray learned it from former Rams forward Angel Johnson, who missed St. Mary's state championship game in March 2015 while academically ineligible.

 

"She said, 'Just keep faking a smile, which I've been doing,'" said Murray, donning a long-sleeved, green St. Mary's warmup shirt after the Rams' win on Monday. "There's nothing anyone can say or do ... there's nothing that can fill the void."

 

Murray has more than just the Rams' impending playoff run to consider. She's signed with San Diego State women's basketball, and has a scholarship and potential four-year college career awaiting her. Murray is still awaiting medical clearance to play.

 

Her love of hoops and her competitive motor are making her wait feel like an eternity. Those closest to Murray, whether it be her mother Natalia Murray, father Doug Murray, her friends or even Rams coach Tom Gonsalves, are trying to respect the medical process.

 

"I'm taking doctor's orders," Gonsalves said. "It is important that she's healed."

 

While Murray hasn't played with St. Mary's since last March, she has played since she tore her ACL.

 

The trainer at Oregon State believed it was a hamstring pull, and so Murray played AAU ball again soon after in Nashville, Tennessee. When she returned to California for Cal Stars (AAU) practice, and the pain lingered, she underwent an MRI which uncovered the devastating news.

 

"I was driving to a friend's house" when her mom called her to tell her the prognosis, Murray said. "I pulled over on the side of the road sobbing hysterically."

 

Once Murray made the news public on social media, word spread quickly. That night, Jacki Gemelos, a McDonald's All-American with St. Mary's in 2006 who's torn her ACL five times, called Murray for support.

"That was a very motivating call to have someone of that stature and experience ... call her and give her a little boost," Doug Murray said. "That was really nice."

 

Murray, Delta College football's defensive coordinator, has seen a slew of ACL tears and knee injuries in his career. So he's learned to stay grounded as he watches an athlete - this one happens to be his child - recover.

 

"We want to support her enthusiasm and excitement as it relates to expediting the rehab process, so that she stays on it, stays open-minded and on-track," he said. "...;Ultimately, it will be a medical decision."

Naje Murray began her physical therapy the day after surgery, and early on, did two physical therapy sessions per day.

 

"Which no one does. I had to," said Murray, who averaged 13 points per game as a junior. "I did aquatic therapy for awhile. My days are long."

 

Murray currently does one physical therapy session daily, and goes through non-contact drills in practice.

"The minute I hurt myself, I realized that I have to become fearless. I have to be able to play again, and I have to play like myself again. I have so many more years left of basketball," she said.

For four months, Murray's inner circle told her to call it a high school career and recover before college ball.

 

"A lot of my close friends and family were telling me just sit this year out. Be a leader from the sideline. Over time, they saw how much it was taking a toll on me," she said. "My teammates, they saw...; a lot of tears and heartache that come with sitting for so long."

 

Murray crouched at half court and surveyed those teammates before Monday's game, and sat near the coaching staff on the bench thereafter. While Murray is reserved in her temporary role, she occasionally bites her nails like teenage LeBron did.

 

Murray's future in basketball is uncertain. But Murray, who turned 18 on Jan. 7, refuses to be pessimistic.

"I'm just different. I don't have any fear," Murray said. "I trust that it was supposed to happen, and I did it the way I was supposed to do it."

This spring, we will begin our inaugural year in the CYSSA with the Trap Shooting season.  Anyone that is interested in learning more about the program can check out:  www.shootcyssa.com

 

This organization is a Scholarly group, and values academics as well as shooting.  In fact, in the last 8 years, more than a dozen shooters from this program were sent to 4-year universities (ASU, Purdue, Lindenwood University) on full or partial shooting scholarships.  The program has also produced several junior Olympians, as well as 2 shooters at these last Olympics in Rio.

 

If you are interested in being a part of the team here at SM, get a sign up packet from the athletics office, fill it out, and bring it back to Mr Tanner or to the Athletics office by Tuesday (1/17) .  You will need to fill out a try out card (however there are no actual try outs.  This sport is open to ALL who are interested, male or female, and no experience is necessary).  The season starts in March, with practices beginning every Tuesday starting 1/31.

General Information

 

The Student Handbook contains information, policies and regulations related to Athletic affairs at St. Mary's and can be accessed  with this :: Link: ::

 

Overview

 

Philosophy

 

Saint Mary’s High School administration, athletic director and coaches believe that students who are selected for the privilege of membership on teams should conduct themselves as responsible representatives of the school. In order to assure the integrity of the athletic code of conduct, the athletic director and coaches will enforce this Code of Conduct. Furthermore, matters which are brought to the attention of the Dean of Students concerning members of teams who fail to abide by the Athletic Code of Conduct, are subject to disciplinary action by the office of the deans. Members of teams must always serve as exemplars of high moral character and must demonstrate appropriate academic commitment. As recognized representatives of Saint Mary’s High School, team members are expected to exhibit appropriate behavior whether in season or out of season, in uniform or out of uniform, on campus or off campus.

 

Athletics Program

 

The interscholastic program is an integral part of Saint Mary’s High School. It holds many educational benefits for those students who elect to participate.

 

The self-discipline required of the students participating in interscholastic competition provides a unique training opportunity not ordinarily available elsewhere in the curriculum.

 

All interscholastic activities of the school’s athletic department will maintain the ideals and standards that are the policy of the school administration, the Tri City Athletic League (TCAL), the San Joaquin Section (SJS), and the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF). Saint Mary’s High School’s athletic department strives to create an environment that promotes competitiveness, spirituality,teamwork and self-discipline. We are committed to building character, developing responsibility, and promoting sportsmanship which will become life-long traits.

  

Informed Consent

 

Parents and students need to be aware of the potential dangers of participation in interscholastic athletics since there is a risk of being injured in any sport.

 

The risk of injury may be severe, including varieties of fractures, conussions, sprains, contusions, brain injuries, paralysis, or even death. Risk of injury may be somewhat reduced through parent insistence upon student-athletes following carefully all of the guidelines given by the coaching staff and school regarding training rules, safety procedures, proper use of equipment, legal and safe playing techniques, and any and all other safety procedures.

 

The school’s program operates on the concept of the “student-athlete.” A student wishing to participate in the sports program must meet the following eligibility standards, while making satisfactory progress toward graduation.

 

Scholastic Requirements

 

a) An athlete must maintain a 2.00 grade point average or be excluded from participation in an athletic sport until the student attains a 2.00 GPA at the next grading period.

 

b) CIF rules require that semester grades be used to determine eligibility at the end of the second and fourth quarters. Grading periods shall be first quarter, first semester, and third quarter and second semester.

 

c) A student must have a 2.00 GPA on the report card from the previous grading period (all subjects count toward the determination of the 2.00 GPA) in order to be eligible to participate in sports for the next quarter. No student with two or more grades of “F” is eligible.

 

d) For the school year: the eligibility period begins when the Vice-Principal publishes the list of ineligible students based on the marks received on the previous semester/quarter report card. Students are ineligible from one publication date to the next.

 

e) The same procedure will be used for the remaining quarters. The eligibility will always be determined by the previous quarter or semester grades.

 

f) In the event a student receives below a 2.00 GPA on the 2nd semester report card and hence would be ineligible in the Fall, but said athlete goes to summer school and in essence, raises their grade and the grade is acceptable to SMHS it may be counted. If, in the recomputing of the GPA, it rises to 2.00 or above, the student would be eligible for participation in the fall quarter. The student shall remain ineligible until the Vice Principal reviews the grades. Such a student (summer school student) shall be permitted to practice but not participate in events until eligibility is determined after the receipt of the summer school grades. Note: prior to attending summer school, students should consult with the St. Mary’s Vice Principal and Counselor to ensure that credit will be given for courses taken.

 

g) Students shall not be permitted or encouraged to drop classes, change teachers, or otherwise alter their schedules for the purpose of defeating the intent of this policy.

 

h) No student entering SMHS from the 8th grade shall be affected by this policy until after their first grading period at SMHS.

 

i) In all transfer cases, it is presumed that the student is eligible to participate based upon the C.I.F. transfer rules.

 

j) Ineligible students may not participate in conditioning programs for upcoming sports. They may, however, continue with weight training if they are enrolled in the class. Any special case or extenuating circumstances will be reviewed by the athletic director and may be deemed eligible by the athletic director.

 

Attendance Requirements

 

a) Minimum attendance for participation in a practice or game is one-half of the school day. Parents must call the attendance office to excuse all absences. The athletic director and Dean of Students must clear any exceptions.

 

b) Any student-athlete enrolled in a physical education class who does not dress and participate in class on a given day may not participate in practice or in a game on the same day.

 

c) A student-athlete who cuts a class as determined by the Dean of Students, will not be permitted to participate in any practice or game that day (or as soon as the athletic director is notified and can notify the coach).

 

Uniform/Equipment Requirements

 

a) Any student who is issued equipment or uniforms is fully accountable for the return, in good condition, of the items issued. Parents will be held financially accountable for any items lost, stolen, or damaged. It is also the policy of the athletic department for all equipment/uniforms being used in

the previous seasonal sport to be returned before the athlete will be allowed to participate in the upcoming sport.

 

b) Uniforms and equipment issued to the student at the beginning of the season for use throughout the sport, shall be stored in a LOCKED locker at school or kept at home for use on game days. No student should give out the combination to any other. It is the student’s responsibility to lock all valuables and possessions at all times during use of the locker room for storage. All lost possessions must be reported to the coach immediately.

 

Medical Requirements

 

a) Each student who participates in any sport must provide evidence of a physical examination by a licensed physician M.D. or D.O. in order to satisfy C.I.F. and SMHS athletic regulations. Physical examinations are valid for one calendar school year and are offered by the school prior to each sports season in the months of August, October, and January.

 

b) Athletes must have a signed “Authorization to Consent to Treatment” card on file in the athletic office.

 

c) Football Insurance: Medical insurance is required for competition in interscholastic football. This requirement may be satisfied through policies held by the student-athlete that do not exclude interscholastic football, or by the purchase of insurance, through St. Mary's that specifically covers interscholastic football.

 

d) After an injury which requires medical attention, a release in writing must be obtained from a doctor before a player may resume participation. This is for the protection of the player, coach, and school.

 

Transportation and Travel

 

a) Travel to away contests may be by school vans, a chartered bus, or another method approved by parental permission slips. Transportation of students from their homes to game sites is the responsibility of the parents. Transportation of students to off-campus practice sites are also the responsibility of the  parents.

 

b) Students who travel to a contest by a school van, a chartered bus, etc. must present a signed note from their parents if they are to be permitted to go home with someone else.

 

c) Athletes are to be dressed neatly and appropriately when traveling to away contests and as well as when attending home games.

 

Outside Competition

 

a) According to CIF rules, no student may participate for an outside team (except soccer) and a school team in the same sport during the same season.

 

b) Athletes are not obligated to attend any meeting when the sport is not in season or when the athlete is still a member of another school team. Athletes may however request their coaches’ permission to attend organizational meetings of another SMHS sport, especially if it would involve missing a practice time.

 

Athletics Awards Policy

 

a) Block SM letters will be given for varsity sports only. Athletes must have participated on the varsity level in approximately half of his/her team’s events with the final decision being at the discretion of the head coach or athletic director. Award winners will be limited to one SM block letter with subsequent recognition by certificate and emblems for each sport in which they participate.

 

b) Awards will be made on the basis of the coach’s recommendations. Athletes who regularly miss practices or games will not receive an award.

 

c) Players who participate will receive a certificate of participation. All “first-time” participants shall receive a chenille number indicating their year of graduation.

 

d) Student managers will receive Block SM letter awards with a manager emblem upon the completion of their duties and the recommendation of the coach. Statisticians do not receive a Block SM letter, but may receive a letter of commendation.

 

e) If an athlete drops out of a sport, is suspended from school during their season, or is dismissed from the team for disciplinary reasons, they automatically forfeit any award they might have received.

 

Drug and Alcohol Policy Steroid Prohibition

 

The athletic department fully supports the policy set forth in the parent/student handbook concerning the possession of, selling of and use of drugs/alcohol on the way to or from school, at school, before, during or after a school-sponsored event. In addition to the overall school policy, the athletic department shall dismiss the athlete from the sport in which they are currently participating.

 

The C.I.F. mandates that, “as a condition of membership, all schools shall adopt policies prohibiting the use and abuse of androgenic/anabolic steroids. All member schools shall have all participating students and their parents/ caregiver agree that the athlete will not use steroids without the written prescription of a fully licensed physician (as recognized by the American Medical Association) to treat a medical condition.” Saint Mary’s High School affirms and supports this mandate and encourages all families to discuss this important issue with their student-athlete.

 

General

 

a) A completed participation packet is required of all students intending to participate prior to the official starting date for the sport. Packets are available from the athletic office.

 

b) Athletes who are forced to try out late due to overlapping seasons will be given an equal opportunity to make the team.

 

c) Any person cut from a team may request an explanation from the coach involved.

 

d) After joining a team, a player must finish that season before going out for another sport, unless approval is received from the coaches involved and approved by the athletic director.

 

e) Athletes and their parents are expected to be familiar with the policies and regulations of the SMHS athletic department.

 

f) Parents of athletes are highly encouraged to join the athletic sports association club.

 

g) While in season, athletic teams must attend any school optional Mass as a team. They will sit together as a team and dress appropriately. Teams are strongly encouraged to attend a morning Mass in the chapel at times throughout their season.

 

h) SMHS affirms the dignity of every student. Hazing is unacceptable conduct, as well as illegal, and will not be tolerated.

  

C.I.F. Pursuing Victory with Honor Athletes' Code of Conduct

 

Saint Mary’s High School athletes are expected to:

 

• Do what is right even when it is unpopular.

 

• Fulfill commitments to the team and school.
