Attention all BHS athletes:
All Athletic Packets from this school year will be expiring on 6.1.17. However, starting 5.1.17, parents/guardians can complete an Athletic Packet for all 2017-2018 sports seasons (summer, fall, winter, spring) by going to https://sportsnethost.com/burlingame (SportsNet link can also be found by clicking on "Student Health" on BHS's homepage). First time users will need to set-up an account (you must have your student's ID# to create an account). Returning users should enter their previously selected username (email) & password to log-in. Each student can only have one account. After the packet is completed & submitted, a confirmation email will be sent from SportsNet.
Physicals that have not yet expired (were completed within the last year) and are on file in the BHS Health Office, can be used until they expire and do not need to be resubmitted. Physicals must be completed by an MD, DO, PA or NP in order for clearance to be renewed (please ensure the Date of Exam, Physician Signature & Stamp are included). You may log back into SportsNet at any time during the year to upload a new physical or to complete the Adult/Student Driver portion.

A note about Freshman Teams: We will consider opening and collapsing freshman teams when it is apparent that there is a large freshman interest in that sport. We will also consider collapsing programs that do not have enough students to make the experience safe for all students (i.e. we cannot field a basketball team with only six players).
If you’re a fan of girls Peninsula Athletic League basketball, the next couple of seasons should be fun to watch as there is a ton of talent coming back around the league next year.
I got a glimpse of some up-and-coming talent when Burlingame and Jefferson hooked up in the first round of the Central Coast Section playoffs Tuesday night. Both teams featured freshman point guards and while they are two distinct players, both showed that they have the capabilities to be impact players over the next few seasons. Jefferson featured Anissah Alipate, a slick dribbler and passer who can take defenders off the dribble while dishing out no-look passes. A big, physical guard, she was obviously the most athletic player on the floor Tuesday night.
Burlingame’s Samantha Kershner is not nearly as flashy, but showed the poise of a four-year vet. She ran the Panthers offense with authority, always seemed to know what to do and where to go after making that first pass in an offensive set and was not shy about shooting when the opportunity presented itself. She also showed a nuance in her game that one rarely sees from a freshman. She kept rebounds alive by tipping them to teammates, but also had no problem going inside and battling for boards as she pulled down seven in the Panthers’ 50-36 win over the Grizzlies. She stepped into passing lanes and wasn’t afraid to get physical with Alipate, as the two guarded each other for most of the night.
