On Friday August 24, the Sidewinders met Summit High School on the field for the first football game of the season. And what a first game it was! Sidewinders won with a 30 point lead ending the game at 36 - 6. Teachers and staff came from a day long meeting to see the team play at home field.
The season just started but if this is any indicator, we should be looking forward to a great year! Congratulations, Sidewinders on your first win!
This week is Spirit Week to show support for the Football team's first game on Friday.
Tuesday is Twin Day, Wednesday is College day, and Thursday is Sidewinder Pride Day. Prizes will be given for the best set of twins.
On Friday, continue that show of support by heading out to see the Sidewinders play. Look at the calendar for details. We hope to see you there!

Estrella High School Sidewinders played the homecoming game against Desert Hills on Thursday, September 22 at the Glendale Youth Sports Complex. The game was a nail-biter, but in the end Estrella won 44-32.
Desert Hills gave us the opportunity for some interceptions and turnovers, which helped push the game to our favor. The night's win was another positive notch that all but erased the close loss against West Phoenix the game before.
As always, the stands were filled with parents, students, and faculty enthusiastically cheering and encouraging the team. Thanks to Coach Maynard and the EHS Sidewinders for playing hard and making us proud!
The Sidewinders showed out last night and denied Summit even a taste of a touchdown. Estrella won 38-0 thanks to the effort of the entire team and Coach Maynard.
For the first home game and the second game of the season, our side had a great turnout of player families, teachers, and fellow students. Some parents even volunteered to help out with the scoreboard. Mrs. O's cheer squad was also out in force, and their cheers were heard across the field.
The game ended around 9:00 pm and everyone stayed until the very end. We are proud of our boys and Coach Maynard's ability to keep the 'team' mentality has so far proven to help bring two victories. We have a lot of season left, but we're continuing the positive motion forward. See the calendar for the complete schedule of games and come out to help cheer the Sidewinders on!
On Friday August 26, the Sidewinders played at NFL Yet in the first game of the season. The boys clawed a 26-20 victory, and while it was not a blowout game, the team worked well together under the leadership of Coach Maynard. Mrs. Zordani, several teachers, and many supportive parents and students attended the game. Mrs. Osterberg and her new cheerleading squad were also on hand to provide some team spirit to the crowd.
The boys returned to school Monday excited about the win, and ready for the next games ahead. This victory is but one of many, but it was definitely a good start to the season! Join us this coming Friday as we challenge Peoria Accelerated High School!
