Bulldogs honored as scholar athletes
By Bill Tamburrino
Student athletes from all of Ramona High School’s winter sports teams were honored as Scholar Athletes by the U-T San Diego. They made the winter 2011-2012 All Academic Team.
The U-T honors all athletes who are juniors or seniors, make a varsity team, and earn above a 3.00 grade point average. The athletes are given certificates, and the honor is considered great for job and college resumes.
Ramona did well in the classroom in winter sports. The girls’ basketball program had five scholar/athletes. Four seniors made the list. RaeAnne VanTol led the hoopsters with a 4.33 grade point average. Kim Whelehon also had over a 4.00 as she hit the books for a 4.14. Paige Conroy (3.84) and Megan Buckley (3.57) also made the squad. Junior Julie Ward had a 3.21 GPA.
The boys’ basketball team had eight scholar/athletes. Seniors Chris Durham (3.49), Hunter Rowe (3.00), Jonathan Schirer (3.16), Jonathan Yerkes (3.56), and Kwayde Miller (3.16) were joined by juniors Alexander Rogers (3.12), Dylan Fieger (3.00), and Henry Flecker (3.96).

Seniors Alexandra Krueger (3.86), Brianna Gansch (3.39), Kayleigh Ward (3.28), Maria Solis (3.00), and Miriam Silva (3.67) also hit the books pretty hard.
Senior wrestler Bryan Coane (3.17) and juniors Josh Allen (3.11) and Kevin Conroy (3.68) made the list.
