Familiar Opponent in CCS Final

Los Gatos will play Wilcox Saturday night at Westmont High School in the CCS Division II finals. For the Cats, this is the 8th CCS final in 10 years, covering 2000 through 2009. The other two years the Cats lost in the semi-final game. Los Gatos has a CCS playoff record 22-4-1, 4 CCS titles and shared a fifth with a tie, since 2000.

Wilcox has also had a pretty good run and are in the finals for the second straight year. The are led by the leading rusher in the CCS #33 Anthony Herrera. This is the second consecutive year that Los Gatos has played a league opponent in the finals, which speaks very highly of the competitiveness of the De Anza League.

Three teams from the DeAnza league are playing in CCS finals this weekend. With five titles this decade, Los Gatos has already set a school record, with a win Saturday, we would set a new record of six CCS titles in this decade. Come out and see a great game Saturday night and thanks for all the support.

On a more somber note, tomorrow will be the anniversary of Mike Halpin’s passing. We send our deepest sympathy to his family at this tough time, but we rejoice in our memories of this wonderful young man. Mike remains in our thoughts everyday.
