Good Luck To Desert Pines Boy's Soccer Team Tomorrow

The school I currently teach at, Desert Pines, the boys soccer team will be playing for the State championship tomorrow. They will be playing Legacy High school for the State Championship tomorrow at 10:00 at Bettye Wilson Park, which is by Cimmeron High School.
From the LVRJ: "Cruz Cortes hasn’t had many chances to score for Desert Pines’ boys soccer team.
When the Jaguars defender had a rare opportunity in Friday’s Class 4A state semifinal, he made good use of it.
Cortes took a deflection off a Bishop Gorman defender and buried it in the back of the net in the second overtime to lead the Jaguars past the Gaels 3-2 at Bettye Wilson Park, sending Desert Pines into its first state title match."
This was a battle of the haves and have nots. Desert Pines is a inner-city school while Bishop Gorman is a Catholic High School where many of the rich kids in the Valley go to.
So, good luck to the Jaguars as they go for our first State title in any sport.

BTW, the Jaguar JROTC, which I believe is the only Marine JROTC in the Valley, did a great job in the Veteran's Day Parade.

It's always good to see our high school, which has a poor reputation in the community, do positive things.
