State Volleyball Chams

from the UNION DEMOCRAT:  The sensational, historic journey of the Sonora Wildcats CIF Division IV State champion volleyball team will continue for at least another few days. 


After claiming the school’s first state championship Saturday with a 3-2 victory over fellow public school Alta Loma in Orange County, the Wildcat volleyers will take center stage at home on Dec. 19, when a parade through downtown Sonora will be held in their honor.

“I think it’s absolutely necessary,” said longtime Sonora athletic director and coach Rick Francis. “I don’t think people quite understand the magnitude of what happened. This is a state title. From Crescent City down to Los Angeles and beyond. If you count all those Division IV teams, that’s just incredible. It’s huge. It gives me goosebumps.”

The 15-minute parade down Washington Street will begin at 1:25 p.m., according to Sonora Associate Principal Ben Howell. Students will be out of class early due to finals.

“We are so proud of the accomplishments of our volleyball team this year,” Howell said. “Together they have completed a tremendous season bringing home the state title with class. Throughout their season, individually, and as a team, they displayed the heart, the soul, and the emotions behind what it truly means to be a Sonora High Wildcat.”

It’s the second time in school history that Francis can remember a parade being held to celebrate a Wildcat sports season. The first was the undefeated 1995 Sac-Joaquin Section Championship football team. 

I am looking forward to cheering for these ladies during the parade.
