It's great to have a talented student journalist like Malia reporting on San Benito High School. Just to clarify, while the freshman and JV teams will end their seasons after the Nov. 1 game, the varsity is expecting to earn a bid into the Central Coast Section playoffs, which would extend its season.

Thanks Malia. Keep writing for us. GO BALERS!
