This past Saturday added to the lore of Bishop Diego athletics. In a rare feat, the Catholic school with an enrollment of just 270 had two basketball teams competing for CIF championships in a doubleheader for the ages.
Even in the era of California state tournaments, CIF section championships are still the primary goal for most programs. Winning teams leave a lasting legacy to be admired for generations to come. For the Cardinals to come so close to earning two banners in one afternoon is a success in itself.
HEAVENLY GREER HARD TO HANDLE: The Bishop Diego girls’ basketball team knew it would have the ultimate challenge trying to contain Ganesha High’s Heavenly Greer in the CIF-SS Division 5A championship game.
