Local Report

Calistoga High School was excited this year when the girls volleyball team won the NCS championship. As they looked up some history and found out this was the first ever girls team honor, they noticed there were several previous teams that had won section championships but didn’t have banners to commemorate the accomplishments.

So, Calistoga has decided to honor the section champion teams with banners to hang in their gym. The 2018 volleyball team will receive their banner soon, and Calistoga will next be honoring the 1977 section champion baseball team.

Next fall and winter the school will honor football and basketball North Coast Section championship teams.

Calistoga High invites family, friends, and the Calistoga community to attend a banner ceremony at the baseball game between Calistoga and Rincon Valley Christian scheduled to start at 4 p.m. on Friday, May 3 at CHS field.

The banner ceremony will follow the game, as well as a celebration of any senior players who will graduate this June. Athletics will host a hot dog barbeque.

Softball falls in season opener against Justin-Siena

Calistoga (0-1) scored two runs in each the fourth and sixth innings but Justin-Siena was simply too dominant at the plate. The Braves (6-0) scored four runs in the first and five more in the second to take a 9-0 lead. They scored three more runs in the fifth before adding three more in the seventh to secure the run rule.

No individual stats were available for Calistoga.
