Three Bulldogs were named to the All Division All CIF teams for the fall sports season.
The teams were chosen by a panel of media members under the auspices of the San Diego Hall of Champions. The Ramona Sentinel does not have a vote on the panel. However, the North County Times and John Kentera of XX 1090 are on the panel and have always been very fair to Ramona athletes.
In football Kwayde Miller was selected to the first team as an offensive lineman. Miller is one of the most recruited student/athletes ever at Ramona High. He was recruited by Big 10 schools including Michigan and Wisconsin, Oregon of the Pac 12 and several powers. Miller took his official visit to SDSU and has made a verbal commitment to play for the Aztecs. He was recruited by former RHS Bulldog coach Kevin McGarry, who is now the linebacker coach at SDSU.
Dylan Blankenbaker and Alec Richardson were selected to the first team on the boys cross country team. Blankenbaker and Richardson helped pace Ramona to a berth in the state meet where the Bulldogs finished as the top team from San Diego.
Both plan on running in college next season. Blankenbaker is being recruited by Oklahoma, Portland State and several cross country powers. Richardson, an Eagle Scout and the CO of the RHS NJROTC Unit, received an ROTC scholarship to Texas A&M and is awaiting notification from the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis.
Another Ramona student/athlete has received good news. Lady Bulldog golfer Kia Turner has been accepted to Harvard University.
