West : Welcome
Happy New Year!!!
We are excited to announce that we will play host in 6 match-ups during the upcoming 2018 football season, 3 of which will come against newly welcomed pre-season opponents. The Wolfpack will open up preseason play at home against the Atwater High Falcons (Central California Conference) who finsihed 3-7 at the Varsity level last year which put them at a 5th place finish. In Week 3 we will host the Ceres High Bulldogs (Wester Athlectic Conference) who finished 3 - 7 overall and last place in their Conference. During week 4 the Pack look to rekindle an old Valley Oak League rivalry at home against the Sonora High Wildcats (Mother Lode League) who recently finished 1st in their league with an overall record of 9 -3 which propelled them in making it to the second round of the CIF Division 5 playoffs where they lost 56 - 55 against Colfax High School.
