Fundraising Update: Our final week of coverage

Fundraising Update: Our final week of coverage 

Dear readers and supporters,

I have dreaded writing this update for a long time, but we currently do not have enough funds to continue the daily operations of the web site.

If our financial situation does not drastically improve, this will be our last week of coverage, with the final date of coverage coming on Sunday, Feb. 3.

I’m working on several different ideas to hopefully extend our reporting, but I felt it was important to update all of you on our current situation.

Donate: Help Keep SanFranPreps.com Alive! 

Update (Wednesday, Aug. 1): We’ve updated our goal, decreasing it from $110,000 to $60,000. It appears we won’t be able to hire a full-time photographer this season, despite our efforts. We’re also setting a deadline of Sept. 1. If we do not get to our new goal of $60,000 by Sept. 1, we will not be able to continue our coverage for the next school year.

We are continuing to pursue long-term funding from local and national foundations, but we are locked in long application processes. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help keep SanFranPreps.com alive.

Softball: Lowell does just enough to edge Washington in AAA championship

Softball: Lowell does just enough to edge Washington in AAA championship 

By Jeremy Balan

A six-run second inning gave the Lowell High School softball team an early lead over rival Washington in the Academic Athletic Association championship game on Tuesday in front of a standing-room-only crowd at San Francisco State University.

But when the Eagles got back in the game, Lowell junior first baseman Majenta Strongheart provided some much-needed breathing room that proved to be the difference in the Cardinals’ 8-7 win to clinch their second consecutive AAA title.
