Fremont athletes commit summer to prepare for 2016-2017 seasons

fremontI am especially proud to announce that two current CSD juniors Hannah Wetzel and Daijuhnae Williams were selected to represent team USA for the Deaflympics next year in track and field and sophomore Rose Crisman was also invited to join them for their training at Gallaudet University last June. What a proud moment for us, they will need our support in fundraising and training to get them ready to represent CSD and Team USA!

Here is the USA Track Roster with Daijuhnae being absent

Here’s what our student-athletes were doing during the summer:

* Weightlifting and open gym
* USA Football Camp
* Shooting Camp at UC-Davis
* Basketball Camp @ St. Mary College
* Volleyball Skills Training
* HS Football Media Day @ Levi Stadium
* San Francisco 49ers Passing Tournament
* Basketball Tournament @ Los Positas College
* GU Bison/CSD Eagles Camp by Coach Kevin Kovacs
* Football practice and passing scrimmage with De La Salle and Kennedy
