Football team clinches playoff berth with win on Senior Night

The Wolverines shut out St. Paul 45-0 on Friday to secure a spot in the CIF – Southern Section Southeast Division Playoffs. The win came on Senior Night, and in addition to participating in a pregame ceremony, the seniors played a large roll in the dominating victory.

“It was a great game for our seniors on Senior Night,” defensive tackle Zeph Williams ‘15 said. “This class has been through a lot and we’ve all worked so hard to get to where we are. It was awesome to play in front of the Fanatics at home and blow out St. Paul.”

The squad will face the Crescenta Valley Falcons next Friday at Glendale High School in the first round of the playoffs. The Wolverines’ final league record was 3-2 and its final overall record was 7-3.
