CIF-SS Northwest Division Preview: Can La Salle win it all? You bet, but a final-round run looks more realistic

DREAM SEASON: Isreal Lacy is a big part of La Salle’s worst to first season and will need to be at his best for the Lancers to make a run at a division title.

It’s been a dream season for La Salle, which under new coach Russell Gordon has gone from 1-9 last season to 10-0 and a Del Rey League title. Don’t expect this train to hit the breaks just yet. I think La Salle can get to the division final before the dream ends. Bishop Diego looks like the team to beat.
