"No. 2 The King’s Academy 14, No. 1 St. Francis-Watsonville 2: With a 10-run outburst in the fourth inning, TKA (23-6-1) earned its first-ever CCS baseball title Saturday afternoon during a five-inning affair at San Jose Muni." (Read article here. Mercury News, 5/27/18)

The Baseball team faced off against St Francis SCP in the Division 3 CCS Championship. The Knights had outscored opponents 15-1 in the first two games and were hoping to keep up that dominance. The game was tied 2-2 going into the 3rd inning and that's where the bats really came alive for the Knights. A huge 10 run inning gave the Knights a decisive lead and all of the momentum for the rest of the game. Steven Grizzle and Matt Wilson pitched the first 4 innings and Erik Peterson came in to close the game out. Up 14-2 in the 5th, the Knights had a chance to mercy rule (If you are up 10 runs after 5 innings, the game is over) St Francis. Erik was recently named the PAL pitcher of the year and had one final stage to show his stuff. The first two outs are fairly routine. The final out was reminiscent of Buster Posey catching the final out to win the World Series, but it was Kaleb Chung instead. The boys stormed the field winning 14-2! This was TKA's first CCS team title since 2013 with girl's soccer.

Dear TKA,

We had a yet again another wonderful day of Track and Field at the CCS championships yesterday. The highlight of the day was Anna Mokkapati win in the 3200 meter race (2 mile race). However the story is what makes it so exciting. Let me set the stage. 

The weather is perfect, barely any wind, the lights are on and the temperature is cool. It is 8:20 pm and the gun goes off. Anna begins the race in the middle of the pack and it is crowded in the first lap as the top runners come by the first 200 meters in about 37 seconds. It is a solid pace to begin the race. As Anna goes by in the middle of the crowded pack, I yell "perfect." However as the pack moves on the coaches around me and I all notice that one of the runners lost her shoe but nobody can tell whose it is. It is a nice bright reddish shoe but hard to tell whose  shoe it might be. The shoe lays quietly in the middle of lane one and one of the coaches runs on to the track and tosses on to the infield.  

I say to myself "Please don't let it be Anna's shoe." As the first lap finishes the paces slows a bit and the girls come  through the 600 meter mark (1 and 1/2 laps) I realize that Anna is wearing a bright reddish shoe on her right foot but she is only wearing a thick gray running sock on her left. I become despondent and figure it is only a time before she drops out  of the race as I have had runners lose shoes in track races and the races haven't ended well. I yell to Anna, perfect and tell her split all the time dreading the fact that if her foot begins to blister and hurt that she might slow down or drop out of the race. 

However, the opposite happens, as each lap goes on Anna covers every move the lead girls make and the pace begins to quicken lap by lap. With three laps to go, I know she can win the event and I know she is running fantastic and that the she is ignoring the fact that she lost her shoe. She doesn't care about her foot she is determined to win. With 600 meters to go she begins to move to the front and I frentically yell at her "Ride the wave!" (That was are code phrase we were using to mean "Go for it and try to win the race"). She attacks and begins to pull away from the 3 of the best finishers in CCS and continues to pour on the assualt. With a lap to go she is leading by 2 or 3 seconds, with 1/2 a lap to go, I grab Kevin Johnson, climb the fence and start yelling "She is going to win CCS with 1 shoe!" Kevin Johnson and I go bannanas and she wins the 3200 meters by six seconds with a personal best of 10:47.

After the race she is completely exhausted and winded. I help her off the track and inspect her foot. Her foot is bleeding but not badly and she has a large blood blister under her big toe. She is fine though, after resting for a while and talking to one of the San Jose Mercury reporters she celebrates by running another 2 miles. I finish running her cool down with her and we talk about how crazy the race was and how the race went. The only think she says about winning the actual race though in disbelief, "I won." 

Well, I can tell you her race will forever be etched in my mind and I now know to never give up hope when things don't go our way. Anna is a testament to toughness and perserverance. She reminds me bible verses Hebrews 12:1-3 and 1 Corinthians 9:24-27. "Do you not know that those running in a race course, indeed all run, but one receives the prize? Run thus, that you might obtain it."

I want to end this story with saying how grateful I am to be able to coach at The King's Academy, where our athletes can run and strive for the one True thing, and that is to serve our Servant King, Jesus Christ. 

Other incredible highlights from the meet. 

  • Junior Kamau Carlisle - battles in the Long Jump in a loaded field of jumpers and hits the auto-qualifying mark (22' 5") for State meet with a jump of  22' 8" feet. He makes the podium at CCS and places 4th overall in the Long Jump. He earns a trip to the CIF State Meet with Anna next week in Clovis CA at Buchannan High School. 
  • Sophomore Kelaiah Moore - places sixth in a time of 15.51 breaking her own school record by .28 seconds and and makes the podium at CCS. Last year her personal best was only 19.07. She improved over 4 seconds in the 100 meter hurdles races (unheard of). 
  • Frosh Joanna Yu places 8th in CCS in the Pole Vault as a freshman! She vaulted 10' 5" inches in the competition and finished out the season being the number one frosh vaulter in all of CCS and the 2nd best frosh vaulter in the entire state of Califorina. 

Well, it has been incredible year of track and field and we have one more week to go. God Bless you all, and thank you for all your support and love. 

Sincerely,
Coach Tompkins

TKA had some great swims over the weekend and our Knights were brave and courageous! We are so proud of them and all of their many accomplishments! Here are some of the highlights from Friday and Saturday's swims:

RELAYS

Our girls placed in the top 16 of all of Central Coast Section schools! Way to go! (Final Time: 1:40.41)

Men's 200 yard Freestyle Relay - Luke Cho (12), Andy Huang (10), Zach Alford (12) and Brian Copley (12) swam their hearts out and advanced from their original 39th (timed) placing to end up in the finals at 19th place! James Robinson (12) was a large component to getting our boys relay team to success earlier in the season but sadly he couldn't swim at CCS due to scheduling conflicts.  (Final Time: 1:30.96)

With the CCS playoffs out of the picture, the Girls Varsity soccer team headed into their last game hoping to end on a high note. A win would keep the girls in the upper division for the next year and send their seniors off well. Julianna Silkwood, Kelly Huang, Lydia Marku and Caroline Barnett would play their last game. This game mattered to the Knights and they played like it did. Senior Kelly Huang would be first to score with a great free kick from about 20 yards out. Kelly again then dribbled the ball down the sideline and found Julianna Silkwood in front of the goal and she scored to take the score to 2-0. After that goal Julianna had 46 goals in her career and the possibility of getting to 50 goals was looming. Crystal Springs then responded and with 2 goals of their own to take the game to 2-2 with only a few minutes remaining in the first half. Julianna then turned on the jets and flew past her defender and fired a rocket that bounced off the keepers hands and into the goal. The score was 3-2 at halftime and now the Knights were just hoping to secure the win. The score would remain 3-2 until about 10 minutes left in the half. Julianna then got another break away and put her thrid goal of the game past the keeper to take the score to 4-2 and her career total to 48. Exhausted from sprinting throughout the game, Julianna kept fighting and her teammates cheered for her intensely to help her get those last 2 goals. With 4 minutes left Julianna struck again to give her 49! Now only a few minutes of stoppage time was left in the game and Julianna got one final opportunity. From midfield, she dribbled through defenders and had just the goalkeeper left and put it past her to score number 5 for the game and 50 for her career! The final whistle blew right after her goal and her teammates stormed the field to congratulate her. All of her teammates celebrating with her showed just what kind of player she is. She dominated on the field and is loved by her team off the field for who she is. What a great way to end her TKA soccer career!

It was Senior Night for the Varsity Boys Soccer team and they were hoping to send out their seniors in style. Ben Arledge, Tyler Farnham, Kyle Wong, Chris Sielski, Mario Cassara, Davis Conklin, Edwin Cazares and Everett Bella were our honored seniors! The Knights would take on the league leading Harker Eagles. Harker had not lost a game all year long, so the Knights had a big challenge ahead of them.  The game started off with King’s matching Harker’s energy both offensively and defensively. A couple of early chances for King’s gave the boys some confidence that they could play with Harker. The pressure and intensity kept up and finally, a corner kick for King’s. Freshman Agustin Pekary sent in a beautiful kick which was headed into the goal by Noah Altabet! The boys had their 1-0 lead going into halftime, but now needed to keep the pressure on as you could expect Harker would respond. King’s was the aggressor in the second half as well and had Harker a little more on their heels. With under 10 minutes left to play Kyle Wong put in another goal to make it 2-0 and seal the game! With that huge win, the Knights now have a chance to make it to CCS! Their final game is this Friday, the 16th against Sacred Heart Prep. A win on Friday could get the Knights into the playoffs.

After a rocky start to the pre-season, the boys varsity soccer team has started to play much better in league. A tie vs Sacred Heart and win vs Eastside Prep gave the boys confidence heading into their match with Crystal Springs. The game started off with Crystal catching a break and scoring an early goal to go ahead 1-0. The boys were playing well, but just had to be patient for their opportunities. Right before the first half was over, TKA got a corner kick and Tyler Farnham blasted it into the back of the net to tie the game up 1-1. Next, the amazing work rate of Freshman Agustin Pekary aided him as he was able to beat out three Crystal defenders and take a great left footed shot to score. Up 2-1, the Knights were rolling and would continue to attack. Ben Arledge then got the ball only a few minutes later and dribbled up the sideline beating out multiple Crystal defenders, took one quick move to his inside and hit an absolute rocket right over the goalkeeper to make the score 3-1. The game was capped off by another goal from Ben to make the score 4-1. With the first half of the league over, the Knights are hoping to carry this momentum going into the second half.
