Props To Monrovia

With the holidays taking most of my time the past few weeks, and yes, this news bit is VERY late, I just wanted to congratulate the awesome Wildcats football team from Monrovia High School who won the CIF-Southern Section Mid-Valley Division title last month. The Monrovia Patch wrote a great article titled "A Sleigh Full of Wildcats Celebrates CIF Championship in Victory Parade". The Wildcats win came with sacrifices:

"The team was forced to practice at Clifton Middle School over the summer as their field was being renovated and worked out at a local gym instead of their weight room for the same reason.

"During this time they displayed fortitude and persevered," Jackson said.

The season brought more challenges, as the Wildcats had to play two home games away from home because of more renovations. And, naturally, their championship game had to be moved to Arcadia High School when CIF officials discovered flaws with the bleachers at MHS."

In addition, Keith of Gem City Images has posted an amazing high above shot of the high school, which you can view and zoom in by clicking here.
