It’s done!

What was once a barren corner of West Sacramento’s Bryte Park is now the site of a Tom Sawyer-themed playground, built is just one day, May 31, by more than 400 community volunteers.

Arden Hills-trained Collin Altamirano plays role in University of Virginia winning NCAA championship

Collin Altamirano, a rising national tennis champion on scholarship at the University of Virginia (UVa) who continues to train at JMG Tennis Academy at Arden Hills in the off season, played a key role in the men’s tennis team winning the NCAA Championship title on May 19, 2015.  Ranked third going into the tournament, the Cavaliers defeated top-seeded Oklahoma in a 4-1 victory in Waco, Texas.  In fact, Virginia defeated Oklahoma in all matches during the highly competitive tournament. And, after playing with heart, intensity and talent, Altamirano made the all-tournament team in singles and the duo of Altamirano and partner J.C. Aragone earned all-tourney recognition in doubles.
