It’s been 36 years since the Fillmore Flashes went to the semi finals. They traveled to 29 Palms but were defeated 27-21, in what you might call one tough but well played game. The Flashes never gave up and fought until the very end. The Flashes ended their greatest season in the 86 year history of the program with a 10 and 3 record, 3343 yards rushing (school record) and 1419 yards passing (school record) for a grand total of 4762 yards of total offense (school record). The Flashes scored 443 points (school record); Nathan Ibarra set a school record with 72 completions out of 142 attempts for 1419 yards. Noah Aguirre set a school record with 30 receptions for 521 yards; Jose “Froggy” Estrada had 62 of 65 PAT attempts (school record). The defense had a total of 1029 tackles 59 for a loss, 18 sacks, 11 interceptions, and 14 fumble recoveries. Christian Prado had a school record 181 tackles 15 for a loss. According to Coach Dollar “ It was a great year for the Flashes, 29 Palms was a physical athletic team with the toughest defense we faced all year, it is a hard loss
for us but the team should be nothing but proud of their hard work and effort it was a privilege coaching them.”

At Fillmore High School, seniors Aimee Orozco and Rebecca Herrera have been named co-captions of the 2008-2009 Lady Flashes Basketball Team by Varsity Coach, Harry Bums. Orozco, a forward-guard-wing player is the most versatile player on the team and she calls the defensive alignments. Herrera, the point guard, runs the offense and calls the plays with a series of hand signals.

“Rebecca has a very high basketball I.Q. and a calm, patient manner running our Stack and Motion Offense. Aimee, on the other hand, is a purely instinctive player who can shoot from the Dynamic Duo outside or drive to the basket almost at will. The players compliment each other well on the court and they are very deserving of this high honor” emphasizes Coach Bums.

Assistant Coach Amelia Aparicio designed the new Lady Flash logo using a photo of Aimee Orozco as she dribbled a basketball. There is a golden lightening bolt behind Aimee and this idea was voted in by the entire team. The logo represents all Lady Flashes basketball players.

Rebeca Isabel Herrera is the daughter of Jorge and Oralia Herrera. She is a 17 year old senior at FHS and she currently maintains a 4.34 GPA. She began her basketball career at the age of six where she excelled and became the starting point guard for the Varsity Lady Flashes since her freshmen year. Last year Rebeca was named to the 1s1 Team All Ventura County selection. She was also awarded Tri-Valley League Co-MVP last season. Ms. Herrera has shown great commitment to community service. She was Team Captain of the “A” Team for the American Cancer Society “Relay for Life’. Rebeca also Volunteers at St. Francis ofAssisi Church and for Soroptimist International of Fillmore. More importantly she has helped spearhead numerous benefi t concerts for several FHS and community organizations, proceeds were in excess of $60,0()(). Rebeca has applied to CSUN, UCLA, UCSD but she hopes to follow in her brother’s footsteps by attending UCLA. Rebeca Herrera is the Lady Flashes team Co-Captain and she has high aspirations for her team this season.

Aimee Orozco is the daughter of John and Tracy Orozco. She is a 17 year old senior, who is been playing basketball for 11 years. She has a 4.3 GPA and plans on studying Zoology as her Major in College. The schools she has applied to are San Francisco State, UC Davis, San Diego State, Humboldt, Cal Poly SLO and University
of Colorado where she hopes to play basketball and try out for the swimming team. Last year Aimee was 1st team All Tri-Valley and 2nd team All County. This past summer Aimee participated in NCAA sanctioned tournaments in Arizona, Oregon, Tennessee and Southern California. Aimee said “’Beka’ and I used to be rivals because she was my main competition in youth basketball, but now we are very close and our goals are the same for this basketball
season.” Aimee went on to say “we would like to be Tri-League Champions by ourselves and go deep into the CIF playoffs and make a drive for a CIF Championship”.

Three senior starters spoke to the parents, team captain Aimee Orozco said the following "I'm glad we had a good turnout. Thank you for your support and hopefully we'll have it throughout the season." Senior leader Jill Wilber spoke to the parents and stated "The team and I are really excited about the season! We have high expectations and many goals. Our first goal is to win our tournament. Our second goal is to win our league as outright champs. Our ultimate goal is to win a CIF title. We have been working hard in practice so that we can achieve these goals. Another senior leader Kyla Hernandez asks the fathers to volunteer on a Saturday, to help paint their remodeled team room. The lady Flashes Varsity Team would like to thank El Pescador for donating the salad, rice, and beans for the team BBQ. Also, Vons of Fillmore for donating the water and Gatorade. The tri-tip and chicken was from an anonymous donor. All the girls want to express their heartfelt THANKS to Dr. Mike Bush of FUSD for being the chef at the BBO. Finally, Coach Burns thanked the Galvez Family for hosting the team BBQ.
The Herrera family announced that they will hold a concert at the School District Auditorium, around the first of the year to help raise funds for the girls J.V. and Varsity Basketball program.
