Due to the lack of support, this website will be on “pause” until further notice as of September 2012. We are unable to gather enough student and school support to keep it current. Please visit the following websites for sports news; galileoweb.org, gpub.org, sanfranpreps.com, cifsf.org.
Galileo’s track and field standout high jumper, Junior Stanley Chen has developed his skills throughout high school in order to become perhaps the best high jumper in the AAA section. Last year, Stanley came in first place in the Varsity all- city high jump event, successfully completing a 5’ 10” jump. In his freshman year, he also won 1st place in the same event in the junior varsity competition. This year, Stanley will look to repeat as champion once again and take home first place for the Galileo track and field team.
Two different experiences on two different high school teams has helped develop Galileo Senior pitcher Lizzy Graham’s skills as a leader on the softball field. Lizzy played for Sacred Heart’s JV softball team during her freshman and sophomore years, however, at Sacred Heart she was not able to stand out as an individual player among the players currently at Sacred Heart, but that experience prepared her for a leadership role after she transferred to Galileo.
After winning their first ever volleyball championship in school history last year, the Galileo Boys Varsity Volleyball team is looking to defend their championship title with their entire starting lineup returning from last year’s team. However, the team realizes if they plan on repeating as champions, they must still improve in a number of different areas if they want to complete that goal.
After winning the AAA city championship in 2010, last season, the Galileo Boys varsity baseball team struggled, and was not able to make the playoffs for the first time in 14 years. This season, the task of reversing last year’s poor season will be easier due to the fact that talented Sophomore Kyle Nelson decided return to the team this season after he initially decided to not play.
For the second year in a row, Galileo will not be competing in the AAA boy’s tennis season due to lack of participation and no current coach. There has been no Boy’s Tennis team since the departure of Coach Maria Ramos who coached the in 2010 team, which she led to the playoffs.
The retirement of previous Galileo Girl’s Softball coach, Joe Ting, marks a new beginning for the team. As a rookie teacher and softball coach, Ms. Amy Matarazzo had stepped into the role as the new coach of the team. With abundant playing experience in addition to the love for the sport, her guidance is leading the team into a bright future.
