Congratulations to ECHS Student Emily Fernandez!!
Incoming Sophomore Emily Fernandez completed the Brazilian Jui-Jitsu Triple Crown. The Triple Crown is a series of competitions including Brazilian Nationals, American Nationals, and Pan-Americans. Emily won the Triple Crown this year, having won each of these competitions. Emily is the first teenager, female, and American to win this distinction! Read the following quote from Emily regarding her competition:
"I compete in the sport of Brazilian Jui-Jitsu(BJJ). BJJ is a combination of Judo, wrestling and submissions. Some submissions commonly used are Arm-Bars, where the elbow is hyper-extended, Kimuras, where the shoulder is popped out of place, and chokes. This year I completed the Triple Crown.
To win my fight at Pan-Ams I won the match by two points, I won with a Kimura at Brazilian Nationals, and at American Nationals I won by the Referee's decision."
In addition to her success in BJJ, Emily is also an honor student at ECHS. Congratulations to Emily on all of her success! We are proud of her and we are glad she is a part of the ECHS family.
THAT SCHOOL BEGINS AT 7:45. Please don't be tardy!
