Wolves 3-peat on soccer field
Goalie Natalie Johnston displayed the championship plaque while Head Coach Mark Jones waved the banner as the Lady Wolves become the first winter soccer team in 20 years to win three straight NCS championships. San Ramon Valley beat Foothill High in the North Coast Section final, 2-1, after a hard-fought match that went to double overtime and penalty kicks.
The Wolves, who have become accustomed to starting their season as underdogs, have thrived on the challenge under Coach Jones. This is his third year as varsity head coach.
SRV beat Monte Vista in the 2007 championship match, 2-0, and won the 2006 title against Foothill, 1-0.
