San Ramon Valley High School sports wrapup

by Tanner Himmelman

Men's Basketball

The SRV men's basketball team had a tough time last week going 1-1. The wolves battled Granada (9-7) (2-2) in East Bay Athletic League on Tuesday and received a devastating loss at the hands of the Matadors. The Wolves fell just short, losing 49-46. The Wolves Tad Fisher attempted a last second 3-pointer and just missed.

The Wolves are (11-5) (3-1) in EBAL and had to bounce back on Saturday against Cal High. SRV came out strong, dominating the Grizzlies and winning the game by 19 points. The MVP of the game was Wolves guard Chris Mc Nealy (11) who did not miss a free throw and seemed to not miss a shot.

"We're going to play hard and we're going to do well in this league," said Mc Nealy. "We want to be the best."

Although Mc Nealy has carried most of the load for the team, newcomer Jordan Guisti (10) has become a force as only a sophomore.

The Wolves look to keep their winning ways going up against Foothill next week.

Women's Soccer

The back to back to back North Coast Section women's soccer champions have jumped out to a roaring start, going 7-2 in the early going of the season. The Wolves always have high expectations to win the NCS title again.

Although many seniors graduated last year, new leaders have been born, including California-bound Grace Leer (11) and Cal Poly-bound Morgan Griffey (11), who have taken leadership roles on this team.

This week the Wolves lost to the Foothill Falcons, 5-0, the worst defeat of the season, a very disappointing loss. But still the team has a positive outlook on the rest of the season.

"I think our team chemistry on and off the field will play a huge role on the rest of the season," said Allie Begin (10), a superstar sophomore with a bright future with the Wolves soccer team.
