South San Francisco, CA March 7, 2016 Submitted by John Horgan, SSFUSD
In spite of a loss in the Central Coast Section’s Division III (medium-sized schools) championship game March 5, the South San Francisco High School varsity girls’ basketball team is heading into the California Interscholastic Federation playoffs.
The Warriors of Coach Paul Carion have been seeded No.11 in the Northern California Division III regionals and will face No.6 Tamalpais in Marin County March 9 at 7 p.m.
South San Francisco lost the CCS title game to Saratoga, 55-46. The Warriors played that contest at Santa Clara University with just seven girls in uniform. SSF features an all-sophomore starting five. Their appearance in the CCS finals was the program’s first.
As a sectional finalist (win or lose), the Warriors received an automatic seed in the Northern California half of the state tournament.
