Coming off of a narrow third place finish at the Central Coast Section (CCS) Finals, the Panthers competed in arguably the toughest division of the meet (Division II) with six of the Top-10 ranked teams in the state (including 1 nationally ranked team) toeing the starting line.

PANTHERS CLAIM LAST GOLDEN TICKET TO STATE MEET WITH THIRD PLACE FINISH

After two weeks of smoke, the Presentation Panthers XC team finally had their chance to compete at Central Coast Section Finals and they made the most of it by finishing third, just 1 point behind second place Willow Glen, claiming the final qualifying spot to the California Interscholastic Federation State Meet in Division II. This marks the first time since 1992 that the Panthers will make back-to-back team appearances at the CIF State Meet.

Just how close was the race? At the halfway point of the race, the team scores for the top six teams were: St. Francis 83, Lynbrook 95, Leland 120, Presentation 128, Willow Glen 131, and Woodside 134. Using a strong and consistent second half of the race, the Panthers moved up through the field to secure the final spot to the Big Show in Fresno showing great poise.

Junior Gianna Mendoza led the Panthers with her second place overall finish to claim individual honors and the third fastest time of the day. Sophomore Zoe Hartfield moved past four individuals in the second half to finish as the second Panther and 17thoverall in the race while Junior Hadley Dixon-Berger (competing in her first CCS Final) passed 8 runners in the second half to finish 34thoverall. Seniors Alexandra Lazar (35th), Bianca Mantovani (37th), Audrey James (43rd), and Gabriella Escobar (46th) would round out the Panthers' remaining competitors.

The Panthers race next on Saturday, November 24, 2018, at 10:00 AM at Woodward Park in Fresno, CA. Come out and support them if you can.

Sacred Heart Still Needs Our Help!

Despite the school being closed, Monday and Tuesday are our final days of our annual food drive!! Monday we are collecting pop-top cans and Tuesday frozen (10-12 pound) turkeys/chickens. Donations can be dropped off in the bins provided outside of school anytime on Monday for pop-top cans and from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday for frozen chicken or turkeys.

If you can't make it to school but your family would still like to donate to Sacred Heart you can make monetary donations here. All donations will help provide turkeys/food for those receiving Thanksgiving and Christmas food boxes.

Currently, Sacred Heart is very low on turkeys. Typically, we provide around 1,000 turkeys, which is roughly 25% of the turkeys given out during Thanksgiving. We hope that despite our school closure we can come together to provide this need for Sacred Heart and ensure everyone in our community has a wonderful nutritious holiday meal.

Thank you for all you have done so far to support those in need in our community!

We hope you all have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
