RHS tied for second in CVC all-sport competition after fall season




The Capital Valley Conference’s All Sport Competition began in the 2008-09 school year and was created in order to honor the most athletically dominant school in the league at the end of each year.

Every year, the winning school receives a pennant and a trophy in recognition of their success. To win, a school must have earned more points than all of the other schools in the conference.
Points are awarded to each school based on their varsity teams’ finishing positions in league play rankings at the end of their respective seasons, with the most points awarded being eight (to a team that finishes solely in first place) and the lowest being zero (in the case that there is no team).

The Bella Vista Broncos have won the cup for the past six years, proving to have been the most dominant sporting school in the CVC.

However, after a successful fall sports season this year, Roseville High School has a legitimate chance to snap the Broncos’ streak and win the cup for the first time.

The Tigers are currently tied for second place alongside the Broncos with 46 points.

Both barely trail the first place Whitney Wildcats, who have 49 points.

This is no surprise, as the Wildcats have been among the top three schools at the end of the fall season for three years in a row now.

This year for the Tigers, girls golf put up eight points toward the fall season total with their league title and first place finish while football and girls volleyball also contributed with second place finishes in the conference, earning them seven points each. The girls cross country team, who finished in third place, got six points.

In order to stay in contention for the win this year, RHS’ winter sports teams will have to step it up big time.

These teams have struggled over the past two years, causing RHS to finish in sixth and seventh place in the winter trimesters of the competition.

The addition of boys and girls soccer to the winter schedule this year will likely lessen the winter struggles as both teams have finished in the middle of the pack or better over the past two years.

Four-year varsity girls basketball player Shelbie McKay is setting her sights on the trophy. However, she does not think that earning it will be an easy task as she recognizes the strength of the other teams in the league.

“The CVC is tough because all teams in the league are so strong from top to bottom,” McKay said. “To get the trophy, we will have to show up every game and not take games for granted.”
