Montoya, Placer seeking 3rd straight PVL title in ’14

Beginning with it’s battle with Nevada Union tonight, Placer and head coach Joey Montoya will be seeking their 3rd straight PVL title in ’14. The dawn of a new season brings with it a sense of excitement and a fresh set of challenges, but the  goal remains the same: keep the PVL banner on the Hill.  Following an undefeated league campaign in 2012, Placer followed that up with a strong performance in league play (4-1) to capture yet another championship last season. The road through the Pioneer Valley League will be a challenging one, with Bear River featuring a physical and talented team, Lincoln returning several key starters and hiring a new respected coach,  Colfax is always tough, and co-champs Center has talent once again at a few skill positions. However, lead by several returning seniors and a strong junior class,  Placer is poised to defend it’s crown in what promises to be another exciting season! Read about the 2014 season preview in today’s Auburn Journal.
