NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
San Benito High School girls soccer player Shantay Tamez this week committed to playing on scholarship for Fresno State. Teammates and coaches supported the senior captain at her signing Wednesday at the high school. “It’s a huge deal,” said her coach, Becky Bonner-Leland. “She works hard on and off the field. She’s great in the classroom. She’s a player you could literally put in any position and she’ll succeed. The only one I haven’t seen is goalie. And I’ll be honest: If I put her in goalie, she’d probably be good at that, too. She’s just naturally athletic.
The inaugural Gifted Soccer game was played during lunch at San Benito High School on Feb. 8, matching two teams of Life Skills students against each other in a friendly, yet competitive game that received an assist from the girls' varsity soccer team. SBHS senior soccer player and peer teacher Mariana Magana spearheaded the game, which she said came about after she played soccer at lunch with some Life Skills students a few months back, spurring the idea to involved more of them in an actual game. "It's so much more than starting something new," she said.
