BSU Baldy View Outreach Program

We would first like to thank everyone who contributed books in the past few weeks. Our collection was very impressive and the variety was absolutely perfect for our event.

On December 19-20th, the Black Student Union went to Baldy View Elementary School to read stories, make gingerbread houses and spend time with Mrs. Martinez’s 2nd grade class. The moment was spectacular and we would like to thank Arlene Jones (Coordinator), Mrs. Martinez and her class for such an awesome experience. As you can see in the pictures, the kids had a great time and although some of the houses won’t stand the test of time, the memories will. 

The BSU is small in numbers, however large in spirit. We were able to share experiences and learn about students who will one day walk through the gates at Upland High School and we believe that making this connection will remind them that giving back is a part of who we are. I am very proud of our future leaders and would like to share with you a little of our past two days.

Remember, our meetings are held every Thursday in room D135 from 3pm-3:30pm sharp. We are always looking for donors and people who would like to help in any way that you can. If you would like more information, please contact:


Dwight Rogers- Advisor (Ext 310)

News From The Plaid


By: Rachelle Ignacio, The Plaid sports writer

    Last Friday night, the Upland Lady Scots took on the St. Lucy’s Regents, for the second week of league. After a rocky start offensively, in the first quarter, the Highlanders bounced back and ended the night with a victory of 62-32.

    The night started off shaky, as both teams had a good defensive start. Consequently, the first quarter consisted of many fouls and free throws. With these constant interruptions, the Scots were not able to attack the basket, as they usually do. Finishing off the first quarter, the girls held the lead with a score of 9-6.

    Going into the second quarter, the Lady Scots turned up the aggression with an offensive comeback. With 15 points, Essence Carrington got the Lady Scots back on, with the help of several assists by Alexis Sanchez. The Highlanders held their ground on defense, rewarding them with turnovers and fast breaks. At the very end of the quarter, newly joined, Aysia Campbell, finished up the quarter with a quick layup, with milliseconds to spare. After an offensive change in gears, the Lady Scots ended the first half with a score of 33-14.

    At the start of the second half, St. Lucy’s had the starting possession. Upland then continued to play at a fast pace, with constant shots being made. The Lady Scots maintained their defensive plays throughout the third quarter. As a result, the Highlanders held their lead with a score of 49-26.

    During the final quarter, the Lady Scots resumed their executions within offense and defense, which truly payed off. Due to Upland’s consistency, the Regents could really only resort to their defense, in an attempt to survive the last quarter. At the end of the night, the Highlanders won the game with a 30-point lead against the St. Lucy’s Regents 62-32.

    With a well-needed comeback, within the second quarter, Upland finished off the game with an exceptional win. The leading offensive player of the night was Essence Carrington, scoring 26 points throughout the game. Alexis Sanchez and Mina Guevara-Goss also had significant stats, as Sanchez scored nine points, as well as five assists. Guevara-Goss scored eight points, with several assists as well. Upland averaged around 15.5 points each quarter, while St. Lucy’s averaged eight points per quarter. The following day, basketball player, Reina Solarez, commented, “Essence was shooting well and getting back on defense great. All of them were just running up and down the court, doing their best and trying to defend the offense from scoring.” Due to our ladies’ outstanding dedication, they were able to finish off the night with a significant lead.

The Lady Scots’ next game is Friday night, where they will take on the Etiwanda Eagles, here at UHS.
