Last night, Menlo’s Varsity Squad faced off against Mills High in an attempt to earn the right to defend its title in the San Mateo County Championship Trial. MMT was successful, and will move on to the Championship Trial tomorrow night.
Menlo won both trials, extending its county win streak to 78-0 (with the last loss coming in the 2010 Final Round). This year’s team is also undefeated on the season, extending its win streak to a perfect 26-0 (8-0 at Providence, 10-0 at NorCal, 8-0 thus far in County). This year’s Championship Trial will be against Hillsdale, who Menlo has faced every year that MMT has appeared in the final round with the exception of last year. Hillsdale earned its place in the Championship Round with a dominant performance over San Mateo. A true match of top teams, Thursday night’s final proves to be a battle with the right to represent San Mateo County at the State Championships on the line.
Next Up: Both JV and Varsity compete in their respective County Championships on Thursday, February 15th. Varsity will attempt to earn their 8th bid in a row to the CA State Championships.
