JSerra Doesn’t Fold, Upsets No. 8 Rosary

Whatever momentum the JSerra girls volleyball might have had after rallying back to win the third game, left them in the fourth.

However, the fifth game provided the Lions with another opportunity and they seized it.

JSerra overcame the brief setback to win the fifth set and to take the Trinity League match, upsetting No. 8 Rosary, 25-18, 15-25, 25-23, 19-25, 15-9.

“We wanted to come out and beat them and it worked,” JSerra’s Hailey Prescher said. “Going into the fifth game, the feeling was really nerve-racking.”

Artists in Residence Speaker Series Welcomes Woven Harmony

WOVEN HARMONY founded in 1992, by Robert and Rebecca Bluestone,  have since been working together, bringing their unique collaboration and message to audiences across the United States, including the Mayo Clinic, The Federal Reserve Bank, National Governors Association and major universities such as the University of Iowa, Notre Dame, SUNY Buffalo and Cal State Chico.

Creativity experts, Robert and Rebecca possess the rare gift of not only being consummate artists, but they can also articulate to any audience, in their own language, how creativity relates to their everyday lives and assures them success in the 21st Century. Their multi-media performance incorporates Rebecca’s tapestries installed onstage, projected visual images of their home, studio, process and the landscapes and places from which they have drawn inspiration, interwoven with Robert performing his music and conversation between the two artists.

Adding a unique and intimate aspect to the performance, Robert and Rebecca invite the audience onstage to visit with them during the intermission. Their ultimate goal is to share their passion and inspire audiences to own the Power of Creativity.

In 2006 Robert and Rebecca collaborated with Grammy Award winning composer Andrew York to create a major new work for guitar inspired by Robert and Rebecca’s lives, their art and their aesthetic. The tapestries onstage are from a body of work Rebecca created in response to Robert’s interpretation of York’s music. The WOVENHARMONY SUITE will be a highlight of the evening performance.

JSerra Valedictorian: Greetings From Fresno

“We have a problem, Houston,” outgoing Principal Tom Waszak said to a packed audience in the Fieldhouse Gymnasium. “Luke [Decker] is not here. Luke is in Fresno,” competing in the CIF state track championships in the 1600-meter race.

But the valedictorian prepared a DVD for his class from Fresno, Waszak said. It kicked off with a musical montage of scenes of Decker running.

The “secret” to his success, Decker said, was found in the faculty and staff – and his fellow students – at the school. “I surrounded myself with successful people from the day I set foot on JSerra High.”
