Our basketball teams have been continuing to grow, with a record number of players on all teams in the 2014-15 season. The teams have qualified for the playoffs in the competitive Division V bracket and last year the girls varsity team qualified for the NCS playoffs for the sixth straight season.
The varsity girls basketball team came up just short last Wednesday night in a first round NCS playoff game at Bentley High School in Lafayette. The Coyotes were in a back and forth game with the 7th seeded Phoenix, and at the end of regulation both teams were tied with 37 points. In overtime, it was Bentley who would pull away and come out with the four point victory, but it was not before the SA girls played them tough. The loss ends the season for the Coyotes who finish the season with an outstanding 18-9 record and a league co-championship. The girls will only lose one senior off this year's team and will come back even stronger next season. Congratulations to the girls and coaches on a successful basketball season.
The varsity girls basketball team finished the NCL 4 league season with a record of 7-1 (18-7 overall) to share the league championship with St. Vincent de Paul. Both teams split their two league match-ups and defeated every other team in the legaue to create a co-cahmpions situation. St. Vincent's and Sonoma Academy will now play at Sonoma Academy on Saturday, February 9th at 3pm to determine who will get the automatic qualification for next week's NCS tournament. The girls are excited to continue their season next week in the NCS tournament, and with just one senior on the roster (Grace Rubardt), the young Coyotes are looking to get valuable experience that will help continue their success next season and beyond. NCS seedings will be released this Sunday and can be found on maxpreps.com, good luck to the girls in the playoffs.
