Escalon has started its fall sports campaign and the football team was on the road this week while volleyball stayed at home. Top photo, running back Hugo Alcala, 11, looks for a spot to turn and head up field during action against the Enochs Eagles. Alcala had 13 carries for 81 yards and three touchdowns in the varsity Cougar victory. At side, Meadow Naraghi gets in position during a volleyball scrimmage against Pitman, with the varsity girls then playing Enochs in their season opener on Friday as well.
