TimeOut with Tambo: Briseno achieves wrestling goal to compete at state; sets goal to medal next year

Tambo.50x35

Bulldog wrestler Raul Briseno set goals early in the season. Many might have thought that those goals were set too high. Not Briseno.

“I wanted to win the league, earn a trip to the Masters and go to the state meet,” he said. “I knew that if I did my best I could accomplish those goals.”

The old saying goes: “If you can do it, it ain’t braggin’.” Briseno did it.

TimeOut with Tambo: Coach Reichner’s resignation

Tambo.50x35

One day after he posted online, “I can’t wait to get our boys into their first spring tournament,” coach David Reichner resigned as the head basketball coach of the Ramona Bulldogs.

The main reason given for his stepping down was his commitment to being the recruiting consultant and associate head coach at St. Katherine College. Reichner took those positions this year and there was an immediate conflict between his job as head coach at RHS and associate head coach at St. Katherine. Reichner missed several RHS practices, an RHS game, the all league meeting, and was late to practices and a game.

TimeOut with Tambo: RHS to face some new opponents after conference re-leagues

Tambo.50x35

The North County Conference will re-league for next year and Ramona will be in the Valley League in every sport but football.

The Valley League from 2014 to 2016 will be comprised of these members: Ramona, Orange Glen, Fallbrook, Valley Center, San Pasqual and Escondido. Not a bad fit for the Bulldogs in many ways. Travel will be easy as far as Orange Glen, San Pasqual and Escondido are concerned. Fallbrook is a trip, as is Valley Center. Both beat rides to the coast where Ramona has been in leagues with Oceanside, El Camino, Torrey Pines, La Costa Canyon and San Dieguito.

Ramona’s Trainer: ‘The Cycle’

RT_Title

Everyone wants results and they want them fast.

Those in the best shape of their lives aren’t all born with fast metabolisms and superior genetics. They are no different from you and me from a physiological standpoint, but they do differ in their habits and practices.

I often hear people say they wish they had that drive for fitness and health. I believe they do. They just need to tap into “The Cycle.”

Romance and risk taking

TimeOut with Tambo: Super Bowl Sunday

I had reservations about mentioning the Super Bowl in this column.

TimeOut is usually dedicated to topics that are sports-related. One of the major themes of TimeOut is that sports are a microcosm of society. However, in the case of the Super Bowl, society tries to be a microcosm of the Super Bowl and every element of society gets involved.

Ramona’s Trainer: Blessed are those who share the Gospel of Fitness

RT_Title

This is a two-way street. If you are a fitness believer, share it with those around you, and if you’re not and know someone who is, get in there are be a part of what they are doing.

Fitness and healthy living are a choice. We are not genetically inclined toward living healthy. In fact, I would say it is the complete opposite. We are inclined to always take the path of least resistance. Just as water flowing down hill naturally chooses the path and terrain that is easiest to traverse, so do we. For these aforementioned reasons, we MUST team up with others to succeed.
