Pleasant Valley High boys basketball team clinches state title

Students at Pleasant Valley High School have something to cheer about after the varsity boys basketball team clinched a 70-65 win over Riverside’s Notre Dame High School at the Sacramento Kings’ Golden 1 Center on Saturday (March 24).

As the CIF Division III championship game, it marked the first time in school history that the boys basketball team took home the state title, according to news reports.

The Vikings girls also competed Saturday for the state title, but fell to the Redondo Union Seahawks, 57-42. The champions reportedly will be honored at an upcoming City Council meeting and during the annual downtown Pioneer Day Parade in early May.
