“We have a couple inter-
national students,” Kilday
said. “Klara Bedrnova (from
the Czech Republic) is a great
100- and 200-meter runner,
but really she’s a 400-me-
ter runner. She’s never done
track, and doesn’t even have
spikes.”
Freshman Kathryn Za-
gata will add to the distance
depth, led by junior Josie
Smith, top four in districts
in both the 1,500 and 3,000
meters.
Senior Bridgett Malone
returns in the hurdles, and the
Lady Gulls still have juniors
Lizzy Barnes and Cadyn Carr,
“and a lot of freshmen,” Kil-
day said.

“Trinity Turner (hurdles),
Audrey Kunde (middle dis-
tances), Anna Huddleston in
the shot put, discus and javelin
— she leads all three on our
team as a freshman, and she’s
still learning how to throw.”
League-wise, “Astoria has
a really good group of seven
ladies. I can never say a state
title is certain. First you have
to get people through district.
But certainly Astoria has some
outstanding athletes, and if
they’re going to win another
state title, this is probably the
year for Astoria to do so.”
Astoria is “going to do
great, girls-wise, and we’ll
do great boys-wise,” he said.
“Maybe we can both sweep
the district this year.”
The district meet this sea-

within the school to share
Hispanic heritage with the
whole student body. During
holidays, the Spanglish Club
celebrates by making His-
panic crafts or serving a
special dish, like tres leches
cake, to all the students so
they can experience some-
thing new.
“We try to reach out to
other groups,” Haber-Lehigh
said.
On April 6, the students
sold quesadillas — made
with homemade tortillas —
as a fundraiser to offset the
cost of attending the upcom-
ing Cinco de Mayo Fiesta
in Portland. The group also
plans to sell hot cocoa and
cookies during parent-teacher
conferences as a fundraiser.

Six students from Seaside High School’s Spanglish Club at-
tended the César E. Chávez Leadership Conference in early
March at Western Oregon University in Monmouth.
The Portland Cinco de
Mayo Fiesta is about more
than eating tacos and going on
rides, Haber-Lehigh said. As
one of Oregon’s largest mul-
ticultural festivals, the event
features authentic Hispanic
food and entertainment and a
naturalization ceremony. Usu-
ally about 50 students from
Seaside attend the festival.
When
Haber-Lehigh
started taking students to
the Cinco de Mayo Festival
— which was before estab-
lishing Spanglish Club —
the local area offered few
multicultural activities and
events.
“I wanted them to see

Instilling a sense of pride
is a key objective of the
Spanglish Club. It is valu-
able to be bilingual and have
connections to several cul-
tures, said Haber-Lehigh,
who was born and raised in
Poland and whose ability to
speak several languages has
been important.

ties to parents, grandparents
and other family members.
