Cover Story
  • SI’s varsity boys’ soccer team made school and state history March 10 in Santa Rosa by defeating Montgomery 3–2 in overtime to win the first ever NorCal championship tourney ever offered by the California Interscholastic Federation. The boys also ended their long season and 6-game post-season ranked first in the state and third in the nation, according to USA Today, the highest ranking for any SI soccer team. In past years, competition ended at the sectional level, and next year, the CIF will offer the first state championship game.

Mark came to praise the expansion of a jobs program, one started in 2015 by his predecessor, the late Mayor Ed Lee. Named for a labor union leader, the Mario De La Torre Training Academy is an eight-week program that gives at-risk city residents construction and landscaping skills and eventual membership in Laborers International Union of North America — Local 261. Those in the program go from living below the poverty line to making up to $80,000 each year. Gleneagles, in turn, benefits from work around the golf course while Academy members get on-the-job training. “Throughout the years, some changes at SI were met with skepticism,” said Hsieh. “But most of those changes turned out for the best. The same is true with the Training Academy here at Gleneagles. Those who were against it in the beginning are now happy for its success.” I tell this story because it is emblematic of so much that goes to the heart of what it means to be an Ignatian. … Click here to read more.
