  • Boys Soccer Remains Undefeated on the Season

    The Coyotes Varsity Boys Soccer team continued their winning ways with a convincing 6-0 win over Tomales in the opening game of NCL II league play. With the win, the Coyotes improved to 7-0 overall and 1-0 in
    league play. The Coyotes' explosive offense has led to 24 goals on the season while they have given up just four goals.

    Earlier in the week, they knocked off International 2-1 in an exciting non league matchup. The Coyotes are currently the top ranked NCS team across all three divisions according to MaxPreps.  They continue to focus on defending their NCL II league title, which they have captured the past two seasons, as well as continuing to develop as a team to give themselves the best chance of making another postseason run.

    Good luck to the Coyotes tonight as they take on Credo at Back the Pack! 
  • Cross Country at Viking Opener

    The Coyotes Cross Country team joined over 600 athletes from close to 20 schools from throughout Northern California at the Viking Opener on Saturday. Sonoma Academy had over 20 athletes competing on the day
    and our athletes joined Assistant Coach Catherine Dubay and teachers Kerry Hanlon and Dan Karbousky who competed as well.

    Claire Hirsch '26 (8th place in the 9th/10th grade race) and Athena Ryan '24 (3rd place in the 11th/12th grade race) were the top girls finishers. Javier Hernandez Barragan '24 (12th place in the 11th grade race), Kalev Kraus (17th place in the 9th grade race), Zachary Fuette '24 (16th place in 12th grade race) and Cole Cline '24 (18th place in the 12th grade race) paced the Coyotes with top 20 finishes on the boys side.

    The CMC meet scheduled for Wednesday was cancelled due to air quality, but the Coyotes continue to work hard in preparation for upcoming meets.

    Good luck to the Coyotes!
  • Early Season Success for JV Volleyball

    The JV Volleyball team has already been one of the most successful JV teams in the past few years at Sonoma Academy. So far this season the Coyotes have only lost to large school teams, securing victories against every small school opponent they have faced in convincing fashion. As of this past week they have won five of their last seven matches, going back to their tournament championship at the Rio Lindo Invitational.

    More important than the victories on the court is the vast improvement in volleyball skill and knowledge they have acquired in just a little more than one month of the season.

    Next week, the JV Coyotes will play their first league games when they travel to Calistoga on Tuesday and host Credo on Thursday at SA at 5:00 pm. 
  • Varsity Volleyball Wins Four in a Row

    The Varsity Girls Volleyball games have been filled with excitement this past week, with the Coyotes pulling out two thrilling five-set victories at Healdsburg and at home against International. Last Tuesday at Healdsburg, the Coyotes got off to a hot start, taking the first two sets from the Greyhounds, but Healdsburg rallied behind their raucous crowd to win sets three and four, forcing a match deciding fifth set. In the final set, it was back and forth with both teams making huge plays to keep the score close, but the Coyotes managed to pull out a 15-13 victory to win the set and the match!

    Sonoma Academy carried this momentum into last Friday night when they hosted International from San Francisco. This match was similar to the Healdsburg match, with both teams showing skill, hustle, and a refusal to give up. In the fifth set, International jumped out to an early lead, but the Coyotes rallied from behind to win eight points in a row, leading them to the victory. All combined the Varsity team has won four games in a row, including their latest match against Roseland Collegiate Prep, which was the league opener for the Coyotes.

    Next week they travel to Calistoga on Tuesday, before returning home to play their next home match on Thursday, September 28. 
  • Boys Soccer Remains Undefeated on the Season

    The Varsity Boys Soccer team improved to 4-0 on the season, with a 2-1 win over Middletown on Wednesday. After opening the season with a win over Eureka, the Coyotes picked up two impressive non league wins last week knocking off defending North Coast Section Champions College Prep 2-0 and Drew School 2-1.

    The Coyotes have two more preseason games, including a Saturday matchup with Bentley School before turning their attention to NCL II league play against Tomales in the league opener.  Keep up the great work, Coyotes!
