Madera – Madera South High School celebrated their third homecoming in a big way. The varsity football team, which is ranked 19th in the Valley by the bias Fresno Bee, destroyed the Fresno High Warriors 54-6.  The 8-1 Stallions, who are undefeated in North Yosemite League play, got three touchdowns from Donald Caballero and five others from a host of Stallions. If Madera South can beat the struggling McLane Highlanders next week, they will clinch their first league championship in the schools history and head into playoffs with a high seeding.

At halftime Shaquille Moore & Allison Lopez were named the 2011 MSHS Homecoming King and Queen. Moore is the son of Alondo Moore and Darlene Murphy. He is currently involved in Basketball Block S, BSU, Campus Awakening, FCA and Leadership. He enjoys going to church, playing basketball, hanging out with friends and making others smile. After graduation, Shaquille plans on attending Colorado State University and playing basketball. Lopez is the daughter of Al and Lorena Lopez. She is currently in Leadership, Yearbook and is the A.S.B. Commissioner of Spirit and Rallies. She enjoys attending church, riding horses, 4-H and hanging out with friends. Allison plans on attending a CSU then transfer to UC Davis and apply to law school

Earlier in the day the school enjoyed their first off campus homecoming parade that started at Maple Avenue and Stadium Road, and then circled the high school, ending at a rally in the basketball gym. Former Madera High and Madera South agriculture instructor James Bomprezzi served as the 2011 Homecoming Grand Marshal. Bomprezzi began his career in education in 1975 and retired in 2006.



JV Kicker First Ever MUSD Girl To Score High School Touchdown

All the excitement of homecoming was nothing compared to the excitement for one player on the Madera South junior varsity football team. Sophomore kicker Jamilexx Preciado gave the Madera South fans a real RUDY moment when she went into the game as a running back.

On the sidelines teammates showed her how to hold the ball and when she made it into the game she did not disappoint. From the three yard line Preciado, who is noticeably a foot and a half shorter than the average Stallion, took the ball from the quarterback and with her pink cleats on went right up the middle for a touchdown.

Following the touchdown she received hugs and congratulations from her fellow Stallions. It looked as she may have forgotten that her job wasn't complete because she still had to kick the extra point which was good. This made her the first female in Madera Unified history to score a high score level touchdown.

Jamilexx and her junior varsity team will end their season this Wednesday at Memorial Stadium as they take on the Highlanders from McLane High School. If the varsity wins that night they will clinch a sole victory of the North Yosemite League conference championship.
