De La Salle, Wolves advance in NCS championships

De La Salle quarterback Mike MacGillivray of Alamo, No. 17, was part of Friday night's defeat of Monte Vista, 59-7. The first half was close, but De La Salle came back strong in the second to win the North Coast Section playoff game. De La Salle will face California High for the Division 4A championship at McAfee Coliseum at 7 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 8.

MacGillivray, a senior, is one of the nation's top high school quarterbacks in average yards per completion; he was named Sports Illustrated Player of the Week in 2006 and First Team All League Quarterback on Nov. 12 by the Bay Valley Athletic League, among many other honors. MacGillivray plans to play baseball in college, said his mother, Robin, but has not yet decided where. "He is talking with a number of baseball coaches at a variety of colleges here on the West Coast and will probably make a decision sometime this spring," said Robin MacGillivray.

San Ramon Valley High trounced College Park in the 3A playoffs Friday, and now advances to the regional recognition game against Pinole Valley being played at Dublin High School at 7 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 1. The winner goes to the championship at McAfee Coliseum at 3:45 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 8, to face the top team from the Redwood Empire Region.
