& Sat. 3/28-29/07 City Championships #6
University Loop Campus
Our teams make it to the
city championship and compete with the best teams in the city from
the AA, A, and RCC conferences. We defy the odds and beat many RCC
and A teams at the V and JV level. Our conference champion JV team
tears through the competition and makes it to the
quarter finals, something a AA
hasn't done for some time at the city championship. We are the last
AA JV team left standing. Taft was also recognized by the CDL as one
of the most improved teams in the league. A perfect way to cap off a great season.
