The spring semester has been exciting and rewarding for College of San Mateo’s athletic teams. Our student-athletes have shown exceptional dedication, skill, and sportsmanship across all sports, achieving remarkable records and accolades. Additionally, many teams have significantly contributed to our community, embodying the spirit of service and unity.

The spirit of unity and empowerment was palpable as IX in Action, the dynamic learning community for female student-athletes at College of San Mateo (CSM), embarked on their second annual Half Moon Bay fall kickoff event. This eagerly anticipated event, held right before the start of the fall semester, marks the beginning of a new academic year filled with growth, camaraderie, and achievement.

College of San Mateo Dean/Athletic Director Andreas Wolf has announced the return of the Bulldogs’ aquatics programs, including men’s and women’s water polo as well as men’s and women’s swimming.

This year, CSM was proud to induct 19 women and men, who have distinguished themselves either as CSM athletes or later in their careers, into the Sports Hall of Fame at a banquet held on February 9.

Regardless of what happens in Super Bowl LII, there’s a celebration awaiting Julian Edelman of the New England Patriots. The longtime slot receiver will be inducted into the College of San Mateo Hall of Fame on Feb. 9. Edelman is scheduled to attend the event as part of an 18-member class that also includes Giants broadcaster Jon Miller.

Last year, Erica Vong etched her name in College of San Mateo lore as the school’s first state champion in women’s swimming. This year, she was honored as the top swimmer in the state and proved CSM’s greatest women’s swimmer of all time.

The most prolific women’s swimmer in College of San Mateo history added to her legacy as sophomore Erica Vong topped the podium five times Saturday at the Coast Conference Swim Finals at Ohlone College-Fremont.

CSM headed to East Los Angeles College for the California Community Athletic Association Swimming and Diving Championships full of promise that this was the year the program would bring home its first-ever individual gold medal.

The Lady Bulldogs earned 10 gold medals at the Coast Conference championships last Thursday-Saturday at Las Positas College.

Year in and year out, the Bulldogs’ discus, hammer and javelin throwers, in addition to their shot putters, are among the best not only in the Coast Conference, but all of Northern California — and even the state.
