The Lady Wolves ruled the den Saturday night as they became the first winter soccer team in 20 years to win three straight NCS championships. SRV beat Foothill High in the NCS final, 2-1, after a hard-fought match that went to double overtime and penalty kicks.

The Wolves ,who have become accustomed to starting their season as underdogs, have thrived on the challenge under Head Coach Mark Jones. This is his third year as varsity head coach.

SRV beat Monte Vista in the 2007 championship match, 2-0, and won the 2006 title against Foothill, 1-0.
        
HAPPY WOLVES IN THE DOGPILE!!!!

2/23/08 - Tonight was a magical night for SRV as the Wolves became the first (winter soccer) team in 20 years to win 3 straight NCS Championships!  SRV beat Foothill High in the NCS Final tonight 2-1, after a hard fought match that went to double OT and PK's, with the Wolves prevailing 2-1.   (SRV also beat Monte Vista in the 2007 Championship match 2-0, and won the 2006 crown vs. Foothill 1-0).
 
Congratulations to a very talented Foothill team on a well-fought match and all of their accomplishments this season!
 
The Wolves who have become accustomed to starting their season as "underdogs", have thrived on the challenge under Coach Mark Jones!  They play each season with all their heart as they set out to win the crown each year.  The Wolfpack gives their all for each other and for the best coaches in the Valley!  Congratulations to Mark, Mel and all the girls on this truly amazing accomplishment!  It is one for the record books!
 
Jones has been the Varsity Head Coach for 3 years now and he really needs to step up and get a little success under his belt!

Sound familiar?  San Ramon Valley upsets Monte Vista


DEJAVU...all over again!
 

2/20/08 DANVILLE  - There was something crazily familiar about the San Ramon win over Danville rival Monte Vista in the semifinals at Monte Vista on Wednesday.
 
Familiar, but with more than a few twists.

For the second straight year, the two-time NCS defending champion Wolves (15-5-6) upset the Mustangs (18-3-5), coming out of a lower seed to knock Monte Vista from the playoffs.

Last winter, the Wolves were seeded No. 5 and beat the No. 3 Mustangs 2-0 in the final to claim the NCS crown.

This time, the Wolves entered the playoffs seeded No. 6 and beat the No. 2 Mustangs to move on to the final.

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Semifinals, Wednesday, Feb. 20th @Monte Vista: SRV 2, Monte Vista 1
 
Quarterfinals, Saturday, Feb. 16th @DeLaSalle: SRV 2, Carondelet 1 
 
1st Round, Wednesday, Feb. 13th @Berkeley: SRV 2, Berkeley 0 
 

Sunday, Feb. 10th: NCS Champion Wolves seeded #6

2/7/08 - The highly touted MV offense couldn't get past the defending NCS CHAMPIONS' mighty defense Thursday night in front of the mostly green and gold crowd at MV.  While the ponies outshot San Ramon, Natalie took care of any golden opportunities they had.  The Wolves had several scoring opportunities of their own, even down to the final minutes, but failed to convert and had to settle for a 0-0 draw in their last league game of the season.  The SRV green and gold spirit was as evident as always!  Many thanks to supporters who decorated the visitor stands, and to the entire girls' JV soccer team who stayed to support their fellow Wolves, the mens' (2008 EBAL CHAMPION) Varsity soccer team who came out to cheer the girls on and presented them with roses, as well as to all the parents, grandparents and friends who came out to show their support!
 
Congratulations to Coach Mark and his Wolves on another successful and enjoyable season! With just two 1-point losses in league, SRV finishes with 15 points, behind Cal High and Foothill who both had 16 points, and MV with 20.
Great work girls!
 
The Back-to-Back NCS Champion Wolves look forward to repeating with
strong NCS performances for a third straight year!

The 2006 and 2007 NCS CHAMPION SRV WOLVES 
 "One team One heartbeat"
The Wolves, known as not only the team with a lot of success, but with a lot of HEART, look to finish their season strong as they head into NCS!  As always, SRV strives to be their very best!  While Coach Mark and his Wolves are in an elite group of teams who have won back-back titles, Granada was the last team to accomplish back-2-back-2-back NCS Championships two decades ago after winning in 1986, 1987 and 1988! 
GO WOLVES!

2007 TRI-VALLEY CLASSIC TOURNAMENT
So Cal's Torrey Pines takes home this year's TVC Championship after meeting four strong Nor Cal teams & beating SRV, Foothill and MV each 1-0, and tying Archbishop Mitty 2-2.  MV had a chance to bring the TVC title back to Danville after Torrey Pines lone goal in regulation was negated and their match went on to PK's.  Torrey Pines resecured their win when MV missed 2 of their shots.
Other SRV scores: Wins 2-1 over Bishop O'Dowd and 3-0 over Nolan Catholic, and a loss to Sacred Heart 3-1.
SRV is a 3-time Tri-Valley Classic Champion and looks forward to this event each year! Many thanks to all of those who put on this fun, competitive tournament each holiday season!

Wolves in the News
 
 
 
San Ramon Valley Times
ATHLETE OF THE WEEK
Natalie Johnston - WAY TO GO NAT!

Johnson gave up just one goal in the Wolves’ 2-1 win over Monte Vista in the NCS 3A semi-finals.  In the championship match, she limited Foothill to one goal in regulation to send the match into overtime.  In two overtime periods, she gave up one goal but blocked three shots in a shootout to lift the Wolves to a third straight title!

 
 
 
 
 2/26/08
SRV has never been a team that focuses much on polls and rankings throughout their season,  but are honored

More Congratulations Wolves!

IT'S UNCANNY — really. Perhaps the Whistle's colleague at the Hayward Daily Review summed it up best when he said, "I will never, ever, bet against the San Ramon Valley girls soccer team in NCS again."  Read entire article at:
