Welcome to Albany High School Athletics! We are excited to provide your son/daughter with an opportunity to develop physically, mentally and emotionally while participating on one of our interscholastic athletic teams. We trust it will be a positive experience that he/she will never forget.
Albany High School teams are members of the Tri Counties Athletic League (TCAL) in the North Coast Section (NCS) of the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF). The CIF governs all high school athletics in California.
Athletic administration and coaches uphold the purpose of our Athletic Code of Conduct which is to promote the idea of healthy competition and to set standards of good sportsmanship for everyone involved. Albany High School, along with all other TCAL schools, subscribe to the tenets of Pursuing Victory with Honor.
Athletics play an important part of Albany High School. Students learn a great deal from their participation in interscholastic athletics. Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition and how to win and lose gracefully are an integral part of each team in our athletic program. Athletics also play an important role in helping the individual student develop a healthy self-concept as well as a healthy body. Athletic competition adds to our school spirit and helps all students - spectators as well as participants - develop pride in their school.
The Cougar boys basketball team honored Albany staffperson Kenny Mitchell Saturday by dedicating their annual pre-season jamboree to the popular campus fixture. Six games featured teams from throughout the bay area, with the Cougars taking care of their business with a 72-41 win over Kennedy-Fremont.
"Kenny is the best," said junior guard Julian Bryant. "He supports us and always has a positive outlook."
The Kenny Mitchell Classic drew hundreds of fans during a busy day of hoops. Bryant and Mateo Rodriguez led the Cougars with 18 points apiece, followed closely by David Wolf who tallied 16. Sophomore center Zander Motamedi had his best game as a Cougar with 7 points and 6 rebounds.
Albany continues to play stingy defense, as they have held opponents to an average of 36 points per game through four games.
