Sanger Athletics Week in Review
The winter season is finishing up with postseason games and spring season kicking off soon. Sanger High School has lots going on everyday, keep reading for a brief overview of athletics from both last week and the upcoming week.
Boys soccer has been successful as of late and playing championship games this week. Stockdale came to Tom Flores Stadium on Tuesday and Sanger kept the ball on offense most of the game. The apaches were victorious in that match up by a score of 3-0, meaning they’d move on to the quarterfinals, playing at Redwood on Thursday February 15th. Unfortunately the apaches finished off their season there in a close game, final score 0-1. The Sanger soccer program this school year had some new coaching staff and great upbeat energy on their teams, ultimately with a varsity overall record of 11-13-4. Thank you to the seniors for all the time and hard work devoted to apaches soccer, and congratulations to all the athletes on a great season!
Our season comes to an end in a hard fought battle. Very proud of the teams effort, but even more proud of the teams growth this season. We really hit our stride here at the end, and have a lot to look forward to. Thank you to our seniors for everything! Now go out and be great!! pic.twitter.com/lvURT6pB6H
