This Mammoth Husky is one tough ... girl?

September 24, 2010

It looks like any other mid-week football practice in any other small town in America. But there’s something different about this Mammoth Huskies junior varsity team this year.

As the team gathers around Coach Noel Looney after a rigorous two-hour session on the high school’s practice field, the players, one by one, take off their helmets, including the rugged and intense interior lineman in the middle of the pack.

Make that linewoman.

“I’ve been told that I’m the first girl who ever played Mammoth High School football,” said Elizabeth Martinez. “I feel really happy about that.”

Keith Dawley and his incredible skiing streak

September 24, 2010

This is the trouble season for Keith Dawley.

The 49-year-old trails supervisor for the Inyo National Forest, Dawley peers at the sky each September and October, hoping – praying – for enough snow to ski.

“September is the hardest month,” said Dawley, who has one of the more spectacular streaks of skiing anywhere. “Usually by the end of October, Halloween, it snows somewhere.”

For 189 straight months (that would be more than 15 years) the personable Dawley has skied at least once in each month, sometimes hiking up, up and up to find enough snow to make a turn.

Huskies use video in game preparation

September 24, 2010

It might have been a bye week for the Mammoth Huskies last week, but that didn’t mean that Head Coach Tom Gault and his coaching crew took the weekend off.

Instead, they got their video equipment in order and traveled to Murrieta, where they watched, analyzed and shot video of Calvary Murrieta’s 16-6 loss to Bloomington Christian – a loss that dropped Mammoth’s next opponent to 0-2 for the season.

Calvary Murrieta comes calling tonight at Gault/McClure Stadium, with a JV game at 4 o’clock and the varsity at 7.

Mammoth High School XC runners on their way

September 24, 2010

The 2010 Mammoth High School Cross Country season is off and running, with two large invitationals under its belt. On Sept. 10, Mammoth traveled to the Whittel Warrior invitational in Zephyr Cove at Lake Tahoe, Calif.

More than 30 high schools came together to compete and see who was “best of the best.” Mammoth only brought seven of its members, but showed the much larger schools they should not be overlooked.
