A great accomplishment! The MV Girls B-Ball team also had a great season!

I know it won't happen, but it would be a very interesting match-up between the MV Boys team and Bishop O'Dowd, who took the NorCal title in the Open Division. (And who subsequently lost to Mater Dei in the Open Division state championship game - Mater Dei being the nominal #1 team in the entire country at this point.)

On paper, Bishop O'Dowd might appear to have more talent, but the MV team has been the epitome of teamwork and team balance all season.

Congratulations to both MV teams and coaches!
