Team Webpages - Updates

The Alameda Hornet Boosters have made this website available to help support and promote Alameda High School Athletics.

 

We'll update the website, but each team is responsible for supplying Roster & Schedule information and for submitting any stats, scores, game summaries and team-related news. 

 

If your team doesn't submit the information,
it won't get published on the site.

 

Ideally, each team should find a volunteer (or volunteers) to collect and submit team information.  That can be a coach, a player, a parent or fan.  That individual can then collect and submit the necessary information.

 

All information for the website should be submitted by email to:  webmaster@hornetboosters.org.

 

Thanks for your cooperation.  If you have any questions, please contact Jim.

COACHES:  

**If you don't have access to a digital camera, contact the Web Manager and he'll coordinate a time where he can swing by and take a team photo for your webpage.

Website History

The Hornet Booster website was started in the Fall of 2002. 

The website is actually two websites that have been linked together:

(Both websites were designed and are currently maintained by Jim Grigg)

"Why does football get it's own website?", people occasionally ask.  The real question is, why did all the other sports get a website?

The football website was developed first at the request of former Hornet football coach Kevin Hennessee.  He wanted a means of publishing the teams' rosters and schedules for families and fans.  The development of the site took on a life of its own and it developed into much more than that.

Eventually, other Hornet athletes/coaches asked why their teams couldn't be included too.  Coach Hennessee - who was also the school's Athletic Director at the time -- had no objections to the site being expanded, so little by little more teams were added until it developed into the "all-sports" website we have today.

 

Over a Half a Million Hornet Fans Served !

As of Fall 2016, we're nearing the 600,000 mark for visitors to the Hornet websites since we 'opened for business' 14 years ago. That's quite a devoted fan base!

Thanks for all your support!!
