Medeiros, Walnut Students Participate in NFL Punt, Pass, Kick

Courtesy of Walnut Elementary School

Students from both Medeiros Elementary and Walnut Elementary participated in the NFL’s local Punt, Pass, Kick Competition recently held at each school.

In total, more than 450 students ages 6 to 13 competed and winners are selected based on the distance they punt, pass or kick a football in one try, minus the distance to the left or right off a straight line.

For example, if a participant throws a ball 100 feet down the line and 30 feet to the left, the total score is 70 feet.

The winners of each school will go on to compete with other local winners in Dos Palos for sectionals. Should they win the sectionals, they will advance to compete at an Oakland Raiders game and a half-time appearance.

Medeiros student Mya Sanchez has advanced in each of the last three years to win at the San Francisco 49ers, then the Raiders, and then the 49ers again last year.

This year she was once again amongst the winners in her age group and will be competing in Dos Palos.

"You may get a variety of fabrics for the best activewear for women online, including cotton, spandex, synthetic, bamboo fiber, and Gore-Tex. Each of these materials has distinctive properties that set them apart. Since polyester is incredibly light and comfortable to wear, we advise you to utilize it. Athletic clothing frequently uses polyester as a fabric. Shirts for activewear, sweatpants and jogging jackets usually contain polyester blends. Polyester often dries quickly, making it the perfect fabric for intense workouts."
  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
  • paul on Why are customer reviews important during online shopping? "The most crucial component of every online store is its customer reviews. Reviews can assist other customers in determining whether or not the business and its items are worthwhile purchases. If you earn positive evaluations, your brand will gain an enormous reputation and rank better on Google. According to Google's recently modified algorithm, a business can increase its performance by obtaining reviews. This is the rationale behind inquiries about reviews on Google, Facebook, and other online clothing stores for women."
