Congratulations, Golden Sierra athletes, for an outstanding winter season. As Coach Ebitson told his players: “Courage, determination, and perseverance. The goal of our season was to learn, grow, and build for the future.  We take a quote from one of the greatest athletes ever: ‘We understand success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.” Pele’
