OF LOCAL NOTE . . . A remarkable season by the Palo Alto 93 Blue U-18 boys' soccer team came to an end last Friday night following a 1-1 deadlock with the KCFC Rangers of Kansas City (Mo.) at the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series in Phoenix, Ariz. Palo Alto came into the four-team, round-robin tourney with the nation's No. 1 ranking for its age division. It also held a victory over defending national champ Alpharetta (Ga.) from earlier in the season. That still wasn't enough for 93 Blue as it managed only three goals in three matches while finishing 0-1-2 while sharing the bronze medal with Kansas City. In the 18-U bracket, four matches ended 1-1 and two ended 2-1 in the most evenly matched age group at the tournament. Friday's game marked the final match for the Palo Alto 93 Blue after 10 seasons as most of the players will be heading off to college in just a few weeks . . . Delandro Leday has been named the new boys' basketball coach at Menlo School for the 2011-2012 season. Leday succeeds Kris Weems, who accepted a job with the NBA's Golden State Warriors last month. In his third season as head coach of the Menlo boys' frosh-soph team, Leday led his team to a 17-2 overall record in 2010-2011.
