The fight for the climactic title was a showdown against Reedley High School. This had hearts racing as the Eagles soared to a victory, the final score being a mighty, 5-2 triumph. This final match secured the D4 California Interscholastic Federation (CIF,) Central Section Championships title. 

With the new title of CIF champions, the boys were allowed to purchase their little trophies of the championship rings. Now Junior Jacob Pimentel enjoyed watching the happy smiles and excitement radiating from last year’s seniors as they realized they would get a ring.

The gesture of presenting the rings to the departing seniors served as an acknowledgment and reminder that their relentless efforts had ended with rich rewards in their final year.

“I’ve never seen them happier, during match point there wasn’t a sound. Everyone was watching intently as (Homeschooler) Bek Jett hit the game-winning shot” Pimentel said.

Excitement was everywhere as the final game came to a close, everyone rushed the courts. Graduating Senior Daman Dhillon was the happiest as the newcomer receiving his first ring and being a part of the match that won it all. However, Senior Andrew Scully excitement was just as unmatched (much like his match partner Dhillon) as they received their first valley championship title. “Everyone kept their excitement all evening, even at In-N-Out as the victors” Pimentel said.

With the sweet taste of last season’s triumph lingering, the boys are fueled by an unwavering motivation and an unshakable belief that the upcoming season holds even greater promise. 

This season is again coached by History and Leadership teacher Robert Foshee, as well as Campus Security and Head of Athletic Media, Daniel Jessing– Bulldog.

Motivated by their recent accomplishments, they are determined to surpass their past achievements. This unwavering determination propels them forward as they set their sights on prolonging their victorious spree.

In the chapters ahead, the team’s triumphs will pivot on their ability to uphold a strong work ethic, fuel seamless teamwork, and deploy a strategic finesse. 

Returning player, Sophomore Benson Elbert is excited for the upcoming season. “My hope for the team this year is to (A. remain undefeated and (B. Get a bigger better ring” Elbert said. 

The echoes of their hard-fought journey will continue to ring as they chase new heights, fully aware that sports outcomes are unpredictable. However, their unbreakable foundation and spirit undoubtedly prepare them for an exhilarating upcoming season.
