"Our boys team has continued to set the bar in the San Joaquin League—it is so exciting to watch them build up to this point throughout the season. On the girl’s side, it is absolutely amazing to see the strides the team has made in the last few years.

Good luck to both teams in their upcoming CIF races," said Director of Athletics, Steve Wishek.
