SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The St. Francis volleyball team has been chosen the Les Schwab Tires Sac-Joaquin Section Team of the Month for October. The Troubadours were chosen based on a combination of performance, dedication in the classroom and service to the community.
"It is quite an honor," said Head Coach Alynn Wright, who is a member of the Section Hall of Fame. "The entire coaching staff works really hard day in and day out. To be recognized by the section is a tribute to the girls and their hard work both in the classroom and the gym."
As the Les Schwab Team of the Month award, SF will receive a commemorative banner for their schools and a $100 donation to their team from Les Schwab Tires. Winning teams will also be celebrated by their local Les Schwab Tires store and featured in CIF Sac-Joaquin Section digital media presences.
The varsity team went 32-2 in the regular season, winning the Delta League title for the third consecutive season and extending their league winning streak to 41 matches. SF started the season with a 29-0 mark, the longest streak to start a season in school history. The Troubadours won the Central California Classic in Merced with a perfect 8-0 record without dropping a set and took the Chris Craft Invitational title with a win over Presentation.
The Troubies finished sixth at the Stockton Invitational with win over St. Francis Mountain View and three-set losses to Palo Alto and Archbishop Mitty. Other top wins include then Bee No. 1 Rocklin, rival Christian Brothers and then Bee. No 2 Oak Ridge.
