Foothill Valley League Play Begins This Week!

It’s October, and that means it’s FVL time! The Placer varsity team begins defending its 2018 FVL title this week in Grass Valley, as they head to Nevada Union to take on the Miners on October 4th. Then there will be two home games in a row: October 11th against the Rio Linda Knights, and October 18th, Homecoming and Senior Night, against the Oakmont Vikings. They then travel to face the Ponderosa Bruins on October 25th, finishing up the regular season at home against the Lincoln Fighting Zebras on November 11th.

Every FVL team this year enters league with a winning record, so it should be an exciting and challenging season! Placer’s tough non-league schedule has prepared them and they are ready for the battles ahead!

Go Hillmen!
