I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

The Alhambra City Council discussed a number of weighty matters Monday night but the council took time to honor the Alhambra High School football team and celebrate its 2019 record, which marked the Moors’ most successful season since 1946.

Led by head coach Eric Bergstrom, the Moors squad was made up of 53 players and nine coaches. Forty-two of the players and seven coaches were in attendance filling the council chamber. Each player and coach was called forward individually to receive official certificates marking the team’s accomplishments from Mayor Ross Maza and pose for photos. The team finished the season with a 12-1 record, winning the Almont League Championship and making it to the CIF semifinals before losing 28-24 to Ramona.

Deputy Mayor David Mejia voiced the view of  many of his council colleagues saying that “he was very proud to follow the team” and telling the players that whatever they do in life “they will always have this record” to reflect upon with pride.

All the council members expressed their hopes for another successful season in 2020, which will be something of a challenge for Bergstrom and his staff as they are losing 30 seniors to graduation this year.  

Bergstrom seemed excited by the challenge telling Alhambra Source that they are “very encouraged by the potential of some of the underclassmen” on the team.
