The auditorium was packed for the January 22nd Board of Education meeting as six San Diego Unified high schools were recognized for their athletic teams' accomplishments.

Student athletes, coaches, family members, and school staff were on hand to celebrate the spectacular Fall 2018 atheltics season, which produced six CIF Champion teams from San Diego Unified. Among these teams were the 2018 California State Champion San Diego Cavers football team and the Mira Mesa Marauders Cheer squad, who recently won the first ever CIF championship in cheerleading.

The football programs from Lincoln and Morse high schools were also recognized for their success as well. Both teams won their division's CIF San Diego Section championship last year, with Lincoln also advancing to the State Championship round.

Rounding out the incredible group of San Diego student athletes were the Patrick Henry High girls' tennis team, and the Scripps Ranch High field hockey team, both of which also earned CIF titles last Fall.

CIF Commissioner Jerry Schniepp was on hand to commemorate the memorable sports season. "San Diego Unified had six CIF championship teams (this year). That's pretty amazing for one school district."
