Skyline's Mountain Bike Club - A Team for All
Yes, Skyline has it's very own Mountain Bike Club Team (MTB) and was the first Oakland high school to accomplish this feat with its inaugural season as a stand alone team last year. The team races against other teams throughout Northern California in the NorCal High School Cycling League and faces teams from the entire state at the State Championships in May. Participation, fun and being in the outdoors are the biggest goals of this team, but Skyline does have a few bragging rights. Last year, Skyline's Noah Hayes wore the leader's jersey for the last three races of the year and took first place in the state as a sophomore for his division.
With a team of 22 this year and its ongoing success OUSD featured the team and their promotional video on it's "I am OUSD" website section and in it's Every Student Thrives Newsletter this month. Take a look.
