I had the pleasure of watching a movie this last week called “Undefeated.” This was a documentary set in the hot south of Memphis featuring the once losing high school football team, the Manassas Tigers.
They weren’t just a bad team. They were terrible, with a 5-95 record over the past 10 years. In this film, through football and coaching, young boys grew up to be men, not just any men but “Uncommon” men.
Ramona High School’s girls lacrosse team was given the sixth seed in the CIF Division II playoffs and will host Pacific Ridge in the first-round playoff match Thursday.
“We’re very excited,” co-captain Mady Stone said of the Bulldogs making the playoffs. “We’re looking forward to our playoff game because we had a good game against Pacific Ridge last year.”

Ramona High School’s girls swim team finished the dual meet portion of the season with a 4-1 Valley League record after a May 3 home loss to Del Norte, which finished dual meet competition with a 5-0 league mark.
The Nighthawks’ 99-70 victory over Ramona, whose 89-64 victory April 30 at Valley Center set up the showdown between the two remaining teams without a league loss, gives Del Norte the advantage going into his week’s league meet at Del Norte. The final league standings, however, are based on

The Bulldog tennis team finished the regular season with a non-league 15-3 victory over University City High School and then jumped into post-season action.
The Dawgs finished one of their best campaigns in school history by posting an 11-3 record overall and finished in second place in the Valley League with a 4-2 record.
