Badminton Players of the Year: Jakin and Raeka Lin

By Nathan Mollat Daily Journal Staff

 

A year after winning the 2016 Central Coast Section and CIF Northern California girls’ doubles badminton titles, Jakin and Raeka Lin were nowhere to be found in the 2017 postseason.

“Last year, we had a history competition that went to state (finals),” said Jakin Lin, who recently graduated South San Francisco High School. “It was the same weekend as the PAL tournament, so we couldn’t play.”

Despite being one best doubles teams in Northern California, the only way to qualify for the section tournament is through a league tournament. Since they did not compete in the PALs in 2017, they were ineligible to play at CCS.

“This year, we chose badminton over history,” Jakin said.

Much to the chagrin of the rest of Northern California. After capturing the PAL title, the Lin sisters won their second CCS championship in three years. They could not duplicate their 2016 Nor Cal championship in 2018. They did, however, make it to the finals and solidify their selection as the Daily Journal’s Badminton Players of the Year.

“We kind of knew we wanted to play together again,” Jakin said. “We just wanted to live up to what we did in 2016 and I wanted to play with my sister one last time.”

As anyone with siblings knows, it can sometime be a burden to be with your brother or sister all the time. So to avoid any kind of burnout on the badminton court, the sisters split their play during the regular season. Raeka continued to play singles, moving into the No. 1 spot, while Jakin teamed with Katrina Hui to play at No. 1 girls’ doubles.

“I just wanted to rely on myself,” said Raeka Lin, who will enter her senior year at South City in the fall. “Whenever I play doubles, I always feel like I had to depend on someone else.”

Jakin, on the other hand, was looking to change things up for her senior year. After three years of playing singles during the regular season, she wanted a different challenge during her last season of high school.

“For senior year I wanted to play doubles and get closer to my teammates,” Jakin said. “Sometimes when we play too much together, we start to argue a bit more. … [Playing doubles together all season] would have been too much.”

But once the postseason rolled around, the two became the dynamic duo. The pair was seeded No. 2 in the CCS girls’ doubles tournament, behind Milpitas’ Zoe Lu and Katelin Ngo. The Lins cruised through their first two matches, winning in straight sets, setting up a winner’s bracket final with the Milpitas duo. The Lins dropped the first set, 21-10, but rallied to win the next two sets, 21-9 and 21-13, to move into the championship match.

They had to wait for Lu and Ngo to come through the consolation bracket of the double-elimination final to meet Lu and Ngo again in the championship round. And like they did in their first meeting, the South City tandem dropped the first set. But like they did in their previous match, the Lins finished strong, winning the CCS title with a 15-21, 21-16, 21-11 victory.

“Since we both knew our opponents, and had played against them in (junior) tournaments, we knew it was going to be tough,” Raeka said of facing the top-seeded Trojans.

By making the CCS finals, the Lins had already assured themselves a spot in the Nor Cal tournament and, like they did in 2016, the Lins made a beeline to the Nor Cal championship match. After a first-round bye, the Lins cruised in their second-round match, winning 21-16, 21-11 and again in the semifinals, 21-15, 21-14 to advance to the title match.

Unlike the 2016 tournament, the 2018 Nor Cal tournament changed to a single-elimination format. So when the Lins got to the 2016 championship match through the winner’s bracket, they had to be beaten twice to be denied the crown. They did lose that first match, but rebounded to win the title in the finale.

The 2018 edition was single-elimination, however, and while the Lins advanced to the championship match, they were denied by a team from Mission San Jose-Fremont. It was only their second loss in 16 CCS and Nor Cal matches.

“I think our playing styles are pretty different. I’m more about smashing in the back and my sister is better at placing the bird,” Jakin said. “Together we make a pretty good team.”

Dear South San Francisco High School Community,


As you may be aware, a vehicle accident occurred early this morning, prior to the start of school, on B Street across from the high school parking lot. The South San Francisco Police Department immediately responded to the scene of the accident, and traffic was temporarily diverted away from B Street. No students or staff members were in any danger.


Per the South San Francisco Police Department press release, at approximately 7:10 a.m. the police department received multiple calls that a male subject was ramming his vehicle into other parked vehicles at the 500 block of El Camino Real, in a local business parking lot.  The male suspect then drove out of the parking lot, across El Camino Real and through the parking lot of South San Francisco High School.  The driver recklessly continued through the parking lot at a high rate of speed striking a cement pillar and eventually became disabled after colliding into another parked vehicle and adjacent fence on B Street.  The driver exited the vehicle and climbed a nearby electrical pole where he was located by responding emergency personnel.  After a short time, the subject fell to the ground and was taken into custody without further incident.


There were no injuries reported during the incident and the investigation is on-going at this time. The cause and motive for the incident is yet to be determined.


School at South San Francisco High School was not impacted by this incident, and no students were affected.


Anyone with information related to this incident is encouraged to contact the South San Francisco Police Department at (650) 877-8900.

 

16 de mayo del 2018


Estimada comunidad de la preparatoria South San Francisco,


Como ustedes ya se habran enterado, esta mañana muy temprano antes de que comenzran las clases escolares ocurrio un accidente veihicular en el estacionamiento de la preparatoria cruzando la calle B Street. El Departamento de Policía de South San Francisco respondió de inmediato a la escena del accidente, y el tráfico de la calle B Street fue desviado temporalmente. Ningun estudiante o miembro del personal escolar fueron expuestos al accidente.


Según el comunicado de prensa del Departamento de Policía del Sur de San Francisco, recibieron multiples llamadas aproximadamente a las 7:10 a.m. que indicaban que un sujeto estaba embistiendo su vehículo contra otros vehículos estacionados en la cuadra 500 de El Camino Real, en el estacionamiento de un negocio local. El sospechoso salió de el estacionamiento, cruzó El Camino Real y atravesó el estacionamiento de South San Francisco High School. El conductor continuo imprudentemente a alta velocidad por el estacionamiento  golpeando un pilar de cemento y finalmente se estrello con otro vehículo que estaba estacionado cerca de una barda adyacente a la calle B. El conductor salió del vehículo y trepó a un poste eléctrico  donde fue localizado por el personal de emergencia que ya habia respondido. Corto tiempo despues, el sujeto se cayó al suelo y fue detenido sin más incidentes.


No se reportaron heridos durante el incidente y la investigación está en curso en este momento. La causa y el motivo del incidente aún no se ha determinado.


La escuela South San Francisco High School no se vio afectada por este incidente, y ningún estudiante se vio afectado.


Se recomienda a cualquier persona que tenga información relacionada con este incidente que se comunique con el Departamento de Policía de South San Francisco al (650) 877-8900.

Attention students in the spring musical!

Once again, congratulations on such a beautiful production this past weekend. However, all good things must come to an end. Monday, March 26th, will be strike. We need bodies to come throughout the afternoon and into the evening to take apart the set. We will start right after school and go until 6:30. The technical directors (Patrick Lucy and Andrew Hernandez) will be coming in at 5ish. We start on the little things and get to the bigger things when the gentlemen come. If you left stuff during the shows, this will be the time for you to pick up whatever you left along with cleaning up the theater. The more people that come, the more work we can complete in one day instead of two days. Thank you and see everyone tomorrow!

This message is sent to you on behalf of voter registration:
Dear Parent, Guardian, and Students:
Many people are surprised to learn that California has one of the lowest rates of voter registration of any state in the country.  Don’t take my word for it.  You can check out Table 4a in this webpage from the US Census.  The chart on that page is a wake-up call for all of us. 
Now for some great news:  California has laws to encourage voter registration.  We have pre-registration for young people who are 16 or 17 years old.  We also have online voter registration, which makes it very easy for people who are eligible to register or pre-register to vote.  Or, please check out out school website and click on the button!

Last month, students received scores from the 2017 PSAT/NMSQT® along with access to free, personalized SAT® practice resources on Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy®.
To help students access these resources, we invite you to participate in SAT Practice Kickoff Week, January 22–26, 2018. This challenge encourages students to take the next step on their journey to college by linking their College Board and Khan Academy online accounts and unlocking their free, personalized SAT study plan. Research shows that studying on Official SAT Practice for 20 hours is associated with an average score gain of 115 points from the PSAT/NMSQT to the SAT—nearly double the average score gain compared to students who don't use Khan Academy.
Institutions with the highest percentage of 2017 PSAT/NMSQT test takers who link accounts will be recognized for their efforts.
Find more information on the challenge—including tools to mobilize staff and students—and visit satpractice.org/k12 for additional resources.
Sincerely,
The College Board

Attention all students:

 

Fire alarm units are placed on buildings for a reason: to alert there is a fire and to evacuate. 

 

Pulling a false fire alarm disrupts school and students' education. It is also against the law with consequences of up to $5000 fine and an arrest which could lead to imprisonment. School consequences result in a five day suspension for disruption of the entire school.  Any person who is involved in the false fire alarms will result in both - school consequences and dealing with the law.

ENGLISH
What are the CAASPP results?
This summer, you should have received the results of your student California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) testing. These are the tests our students took last spring. The tests are based on the Common Core, a set of academic standards, or learning goals, for math and English that define what our students should know and be able to do at the end of each grade.
 
What do the CAASPP results mean?
The CAASPP report will show an overall score for your student in each subject, ranging from 2,000 to 3,000. This score shows if a student met, did not meet or exceeded expectations for their grade. The second page of the report includes a further breakdown of that score, providing individualized information on your student’s academic strengths and potential challenges. The report will also compare your student’s results from last spring’s test to his/her results in previous grades, if available. For more information on how to read your score report, go to: http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/caasppssreports.asp
How will my child’s test results used?
The test results provide you and the school more detailed information on where your child needs more support, or where they could be accelerated in the future. You can work together with your child’s new teacher(s) and/or school administers to identify subjects where your child could improve, how you can better support your child at home, and focus on making progress in the coming school year. Testing is important, but it’s only one way to gauge how students are doing. Your child’s scores will be taken into account as part of a broader look at their academic progress.
 
Additionally, the California Department of Education will soon be releasing summaries of how our students performed as a school, district, county, and state. Once released, the summaries will be available here: http://caaspp.cde.ca.gov/. This information can be used to compare your school to other schools and to district and statewide results. It will also help to show you how your child performed on the test relative to other students. This information will also be combined with other data about our school in the state's new accountability system that will come out later this fall. The new system will provide the public with a broader set of outcome data including graduation rates, chronic absentee rates, suspension rates, English learner progress, and a measure of college and career readiness. This data dashboard will help our school in setting its priorities for the future so that we can focus on the areas of greatest need.
 
SPANISH
 
¿Qué son los resultados de CAASPP?
Este verano, usted debe haber recibido los resultados del examen estudiantil California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). Estos son los exámenes que fueron administrados durante la primavera. Los exámenes son basados en Common Core, un conjunto de estándares académicos, o metas de aprendizaje en matemáticas e lenguage que definen lo que los estudiantes deben saber y ser capaces de hacer al final de cada año escolar.
 
¿Qué significan los resultados del examen CAASPP?
El reporte de CAASSPP mostrará un resumen breve de la puntuación para su estudiante en cada área de aprendizaje. La puntuación varia  2,000 a 3,000 puntos. La puntuación muestra si un estudiante alcanzo, no alcanzo, o supero las expectativas para su grado. La segunda página del reporte incluye más información sobre la puntuación que obtuvo su hijo(a), incluyendo información sobre las fortalezas académicas y áreas de desafío de su estudiante. El reporte también incluye una comparación de los  resultados de su estudiante durante esta primavera a los resultados de su hijo(a) durante años anteriores, si la información está disponible. Para más información sobre los resultados del reporte, visite: http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/caasppssreports.asp
 
¿Cómo se usaran los resultados de mi hijo(a)?
Los resultados del examen le proporcionan a usted y a la escuela información más detallada sobre áreas donde su hijo(a) necesita más apoyo, o áreas donde el/ella puede acelerarse en el futuro. Usted puede trabajar junto con el maestro/a de su hijo(a) y / o los administradores de la escuela de su hijo(a) para identificar áreas donde su hijo(a) podría mejorar, estrategias para mejor apoyar a su hijo(a) en el hogar, y como progresar durante el año escolar. Los exámenes son importantes, pero son solo una manera de medir como están progresando los estudiantes. Los resultados de su hijo/a serán contados como parte de una mirada más amplia sobre su progreso académico.
 
Adicionalmente, el Departamento de Educación de California pronto publicará resúmenes de cómo nuestros estudiantes progresaron al nivel de la escuela, distrito, condado y estado. Al ser publicados, los resúmenes estarán disponibles aquí: http://caaspp.cde.ca.gov/ . Esta información se puede usar para comparar el progreso de su escuela con otras escuelas y con los resultados del distrito y del estado. También le ayudará ver los resultados de su hijo(a) en comparacion a grupos de estudiantes del mismo grado. Esta información también se combinará con otros datos sobre nuestra escuela dentro del nuevo sistema de responsabilidad del estado que saldrá en el otoño. El nuevo sistema proporcionará al público un conjunto más amplio de datos de resultados, incluyendo tasas de graduación, tasas de absentismo, tasas de suspensión, progreso de los estudiantes de inglés y una medida de preparación para la universidad y carrera. Este tablero digital de datos nos ayudará a nuestra escuela a establecer nuestras prioridades para el futuro para que podamos enfocarnos en impactar las áreas de mayor necesidad.

Dear SSFHS Students,

As a reminder, school rules and expectations include the following:

1) No electronic devices allowed during the school day including lunch time unless the student has been authorized by staff that it can be used for instructional purposes; and

2)  No hoods allowed inside or outside of class.  Beannies and baseball caps may be worn outside for sun protection or cold.

 

Students who do not follow the school rules will be given school consequences.

 

Thank you,

Attention all students:

Fire alarm units are placed on buildings for a reason: to alert there is a fire and to evacuate. 

 

Pulling a false fire alarm disrupts school and students' education. It is also against the law with consequences of up to $5000 fine and an arrest which could lead to imprisonment. School consequences result in a five day suspension for disruption of the entire school.  Any person who is involved in the false fire alarms will result in both - school consequences and dealing with the law. 

 

Students:  if you see something, say something
