Friday night, 3/6, TKA Knights raced at the famous Kezar stadium. The athletes braved the chilly weather and performed well.

Junior Noah Short ran two personal records and posted the fastest time in CCS for the 100 meters so far this season. He won the 100 meter race in a time 11.14 and came back in the 200 meter race in a time of 22.62 to win that race as well. His time in the 200 meters moved him up to 3rd on the all - time school record board.

Senior Hailey Richey broke 17' feet in the Long Jump for the first time and placed second over on in the meet. She earned herself the 2nd spot on the All - Time record board for TKA as well.

Here are the overall results from the meet. Many of our runners and athletes improved even in the colder conditions.

Sunset Invitational results 

Posted 03/05/2020 10:34AM

Last Saturday, 2/29, was a beautiful day in the water as our TKA Swim team entered its first competition of the season, the Spring Kickoff Invitational at Palo Alto High School. This squad of nearly three dozen swimmers is full of crafty senior vets and savage up-and-coming youngsters. In all, there is a lot of reason for excitement both for the present and future. 

In her very first day of competition as a TKA Knight, Tristen Mina (9th), turned in a blistering time in the 100-yd butterfly and smashed the CCS-qualifying time by over 2 full seconds. Tristen also teamed up with sister and captain Kaitlyn Mina (12th), Abigail Ninan (9th/PSP), and captain Zoe Jacobs (12th), to completely ruin the CCS-qualifying time in the 200-yd Medley Relay. 

The Mina Sisters did not stop there, however, teaming up again in the 400-yd Freestyle relay along with Abigail Ninan (9th/PSP), and Katie Vogel (11th/PSP), to clinch a CCS qualifier. 

Abigail Ninan is a name we best all get used to hearing in TKA aquatics, because this PSP freshman is only just beginning her tear through the WBAL. Aside from contributing to two CCS-qualifying relay teams, Abby came in under the CCS cut time in the 50-yd freestyle. She'll be slicing the water looking for more qualifiers this Saturday at the small School Invite at Sacred Heart.

Other notable achievements include Sophia Groves (11th) who swam competitively for the first time ever, (as in ever), and whittled some time off her previous best in the 50 Freestyle. Daphne Han (9th) likewise achieved personal records in two of her three individual events, the 50 and 100 Freestyle, on her very first day wearing a TKA cap. Joshua Ridder (10th) broke the minute for the first time in the 100-yd freestyle, coming in at 58.92 seconds, and he also achieved a PR in the 100-yd backstroke. Captain Darren Chin (12th) took home a PR of his own in the 100 Back.

As it has across the community, illness has hit our team hard in the last month, but we are rounding into full-squad form just as we enter league competition, beginning with this Saturday's Small School Invite at Sacred Heart Prep. Please pray for good health and a continued joyful spirit surrounding this team.

There is a lot to be joyful about.

TKA had a great start to the track and field season at Bellarmine H.S on Saturday, Feb. 29.  Here is a link to the results. 

Highlights:  Senior and team captain Kelaiah Moore led the team with two impressive performances in the sprints. She won the 200 meter race and placed second in the 100 meters. She ran 26.58 and 12.74 respectively and is now 2nd all time in the 200 meters and 3rd in the 100 meters on our school record board. Not far behind her was junior Molly Clarke in the 200 meters (3rd place). She finished in 27.60 which moved her up to #7 on the all-time board. Sophomore Aidan Oslob had a big PR in his first 1600 meters of the season and ran 4:42.79 (7th) and another PR in the 800 (6th) where he ran 2:07.79. Those performances placed him #8 and #9 on the all-time board in those events respectively. Joanne Yu tied for first place in the pole vault and vaulted 11 feet. Finally, Senior Lauren Mclane in her first attempt at high jump this year jumped 4 feet 8 inches which tied her for 2nd on the all-time school record board. 

In summary, TKA had a great first meet and a plethora of personal bests. Next week the entire team of about 80 athletes will compete on Friday, March 6, at the famous Kezar Stadium in San Francisco at the Sunset Invitational.

God Bless you and a big thank you to all the athletes and parents that came out to support the team! 
Sincerely, 


Coach Matt Tompkins

Excerpts below from Mercury News story, "King's Academy stands tall to claim CCS D-III title over Terra Nova."

Watch a video of the game here!

TKA Knights celebrate back-to-back CCS championships after a 14-13 victory against Terra Nova in CCS Division III football championship game! Top-seeded TKA (10-3) will play in a NorCal regional for the first time in school history.

"Unbelievable," Lavorato said. "We had the game won like four or five times. It's testament to our defense and a testament of how courageous our kids are."

"I don't care who, where what, when — it doesn't matter," said Lavorato, who claimed his seventh CCS title this decade — five at SHP from 2010-15 and back-to-back trophies at TKA, last year's Division V winner. "We're playing in a NorCal championship game. That is really cool."

We just learned TKA will be HOSTING a CA regional bowl game, which is amazing! If TKA wins this game, we will move on to a State Championship game. Details below.
