  • All Four SA Basketball Teams Undefeated in League Play

    The JV Girls, JV Boys, Varsity Girls, and Varsity Boys Basketball teams are all undefeated in NCL 2 league play thus far, with each team pulling out victories over Credo High School and Roseland University Prep the past two weeks. 

    Mixed into those league games were various non-league contests with Calistoga, Marin Academy, St. Bernard's (Eureka), Novato High, San Rafael High, and San Domenico. All of these games have provided an array of experiences that will help our teams prepare to finish their season strong, and help the varsity teams prepare for the NCS playoffs. With just two weeks left in the regular season, all four Coyote basketball teams are going to play meaningful games that will help them grow as individuals and as a team, all while having a great chance to bring home the NCL 2 league championship. 

    Coming up this week, the Varsity teams will play at home on Tuesday against Roseland Collegiate Prep, with the Varsity girls tipping off at 5:30 pm and the Varsity Boys to follow at 7:00 pm. Then all four teams will travel to Rohnert Park on Friday to take on Credo at the Callinan Center, with start times of 3:30 pm (JV Girls), 5:00 pm (JV Boys), 6:30 pm (Varsity Girls), and 8:00 pm (Varsity Boys). Good luck to the Coyotes next week! 
  • Varsity Girls Soccer Undefeated in NCL I League Play

    The Varsity Girls Soccer team returned from winter break and hit the ground running with some impressive results, starting with a win over Montgomery! Against the Vikings, the Coyotes picked up a 1-0 win, knocking off the Vikings for the first time.  Following that win, the Coyotes turned their attention to NCL I league play where they knocked off Kelseyville (5-0), St. Helena (5-0), Cloverdale (6-0), and Roseland University Prep (9-0) to start league play with a 4-0 record.

    In addition, the Coyotes tied Branson 2-2 in non-league action. Branson entered the game as one of the top-ranked teams across all divisions in the NCS, and the Coyotes came from behind twice to tie the game.

    Up next, the Coyotes have non-league matches against Cardinal Newman and Ukiah, while also finishing out the second half of NCL I league play. The Coyotes are currently 9-3-1 overall with a 4-0 NCL I league record, and they are excited about finishing the season strong!
  • Basketball Teams Tip Off the Season

    All four SA Basketball teams have now officially started their seasons with this past Tuesday night's home games at SA! They will all continue with non-league games until Winter Break, ultimately looking to be playing their best basketball in league play this January. 

    The JV girls took on Credo High on Tuesday and used a second half surge to pull out a double digit victory in their first game of the season. The JV boys have dominated in their two wins, coming last week at Elsie Allen and at home this week against Technology High School.

    The Varsity girls have now played three games, two of them against very tough competition at Mt. Diablo of Concord and International High from San Francisco, but the Coyote varsity girls were able to pick up their first win on Tuesday against Technology High. The Varsity boys are now 2-0 on the young season, pulling out a close three point victory at Elsie Allen before Thanksgiving break, as well as a game with a large margin of victory over Technology High on Tuesday night. 

    Both Varsity teams will play in two very good small-school basketball tournaments at the end of this week, with the boys at St. Helena High School and the girls at Marin Academy. All four teams will be in action again at SA on Tuesday, Dec. 5, with game times of 3:30 pm (JV Girls), 5:00 pm (JV Boys), 6:30 pm (Varsity Girls), and 8:00 pm (Varsity Boys).
