These is a great honor. Most people don't know there are 10 sections in the California Interscholastic Federation. Each has playoffs to determine champions their school-size-based divisions, but only a handful of those champions get selected to go head-to-head for the title of State Champion. While "State Champion" is common in other places, it wasn't possible in California until a few years ago, due to the State's size. The fact that MHS has been the Southern Section Champion in its division for three years in a row, but is only now being selected for the State playoffs is a testament to the quality of the competition. It is a tremendous honor to even be selected. Well done, Wildcats!

As a parent of a player for Sierra Canyon, as you well know, I had the chance to watch these kids play. Congrats to the Wildcats ! This is a very good team. These kids are hard workers, good players and it is my belief that you'll go all the way to win at the Home Depot Center. I am wishing you all the best for a job well done ! Go get em !
