Sanger’s Week In Review
Girls golf won the Central Area Championship tournament in Reedley on Monday… Apaches who placed in the top ten were Hannah Steagall, Maddie Berry, Kyana Grunberg, and Eliza Hernandez. The team qualified to play in the Central Section Division II Championships in Porterville this week.
Football had a very interesting week with another win for the freshman team to make them 9-0, a loss for the JV Apaches, and a big comeback win for the varsity team. It was the pink out game in honor of breast cancer awareness, so pink chalk was thrown in the air by the student section during halftime (pictured). At that halfway point in the game, Sanger was losing 13-6. Jalen Cropper ran in for a touchdown during the third quarter which tied the game after the extra point. In the fourth quarter, Orlando Douglas had a rushing touchdown, but Edison quickly came back to tie. With 6 mins left Cropper had a 68 yard run to the end zone, which proved the be the difference in the game… Sanger won 27-20, putting their record at 7-1. Sanger football looks to finish strong as Friday the 27th they play at Madera, then next Friday on November 3rd is senior night, the last regular season game at Tom Flores Stadium.
