WILDCATS UPDATE

 

APRIL ATHLETES OF THE MONTH

RAMANDEEP  SINGH  -  TRACK & FIELD

Two-year cross country and track and field letterman Ramandeep Singh is a 2007 graduate of Gahr High School where he was named the team’s Most Valuable Cross Country Runner. He was also honored by being selected as a First Team All-Conference Cross Country runner this past fall at West. As you might expect his hobby is running and his favorite food is pizza. “Raman” has worked very hard for three years and has overcome numerous injuries to become a Wildcat team leader and one of the best long distance runners in the state.  Raman recently broke the West Los Angeles College school record in the 10,000 meter run with a time of 32:09.97 shattering the old record by over two minutes.  He has qualified for the So Cal Prelims and is gunning for a spot in the state meet later in May. Singh has a cumulative 3.1 grade point average, and is looking to transfer to a four year university majoring in Kinesiology. He is on target to graduate this spring with his Associate of Arts Degree from West. 

 

NICOLE  MORENO  -  VOLLEYBALL

Nicole Moreno is a 2007 graduate of L.A. University High School, and while at “Uni” she competed in the sports of soccer, basketball, volleyball and softball.  She was an honor roll student in high school and currently holds a 3.0 grade point average at West.  Nicole plans to transfer to a four year university and major in Psychology or Pre-Law.  She hopes to be recruited and would like to continue her volleyball career at the next level of competition.  Since arriving at West, she has been a mainstay and team leader on the Women’s Volleyball team the past two seasons.  She specialized in the position of setter but played where ever the team needed her.  Nicole only knows one speed and her hard work, all out hustle and competitive spirit helped inspire her teammates on the Wildcat Volleyball squad.
