The Wolverines won the Mission League title, beating the Tologs on two occassions to do so.
It is Sacred Heart’s first final appearance since 2002.
TWO VAQUEROS EARN ALL-CONFERENCE HONORS
Though the Glendale Community College football team concluded the regular season with a 17-10 loss to host Citrus College on Saturday in a Western State Conference Pacific Division game, it still had two players earn all-conference honors.
Sophomore quarterback Mike McDonald completed 14 of 29 passes for 229 yards to secure the conference’s offensive player of the week. Sophomore linebacker Anthony Cullors was named the conference’s defensive player of the week after he finished with a team-high 15 tackles.
AREA AYSO TEAMS IN PLAYOFFS
The Glendale/La Crescenta AYSO Region 88 fielded five Under-19 Girls soccer teams for the 2007 season, setting a record for the most such teams it has sent to compete in Area play in its 32-year history. All five teams have qualified for the Area C West San Gabriel Valley playoffs.
With two pools of teams from the nine Area C AYSO Regions, Region 88 teams took first, second and third in pool A and second and third in pool B. Only the top four teams in each pool of eight teams qualified for the playoffs.
“This season’s success reflects the improvements our region has made in the coaching and training of our players over the past five years,” said Aldo Mascheroni, Region 88 Commissioner in a press release. “We have five experienced coaches, players who have participated in AYSO for many years, and a very active tournament program that keeps the girls playing soccer and competing against top competition year round, not just during the fall season.”
The top team at the conclusion of the single-elimination playoffs will go on to compete at the Section 1 tournament, which will take place Saturday and Sunday.
AYSO Region 88 features more than 3,550 players, ranging in age from 4 to 18 years. It is the largest all-volunteer youth athletic sports organization in the city.
