It's time to give thanks. Many of us will break bread on Thursday at dinner tables across America to reflect on the things that unfortunately we only reflect upon once a year. But thankfully, the federal government from its earliest form of the Continental Congress to the Civil War to FDR weighed in at some point of history and made it a federal holiday. Well played.

Mountain Cross Country ended their season last Thursday afternoon in Fresno by competing in the CIF Division III championships at Woodward Park.
The varsity men took 24th place with a team score of 633 and the varsity girls came in ninth place overall with a team score of 295.
The Warriors played one of their most impressive defensive games of the year against a prolific, high-scoring offense in the CIF Division II Quarterfinals.
However, Garces matched Mountain Football with a stifling performance of their own en route to a 20-3 win over Tehachapi.
With their backs against the wall and facing the defending champion and No. 1 seed El Diamante for the CIF title, the No.2-seeded Lady Warriors knew that they would have to have a flawless match to record an upset victory.
Tehachapi (32-4) was near perfect, giving the Miners reason to doubt the possibility of back-to-back titles before falling in an epic five set match, 26-24, 24-26, 14-25, 26-24, 15-12.
Down two sets and losing by as much as 10 points in the third game, things were looking bleak for the Lady Warriors.
Having worked so hard to reach the semifinals and come close to their dream of playing in a CIF championship, it appeared that Independence was poised for the upset and signal in a final four exit for Mountain Volleyball for the second straight season.
A valient Tehachapi Warrior team held its own through most of the game but was overcome by Garces in the last quarter of the CIF Division II Playoffs (Quarterfinals) in Bakersfield on Friday night, Nov. 22.
The Tehachapi High Volleyball team made a great showing in the CIF championship game against El Diamante High School in Visalia tonight, pushing the Miners throughout the evening but falling short of taking the crown.
No. 2 seeded Tehachapi volleyball came back from two sets down to win tonight, 20-25, 21-25, 25-21, 25-18 and 15-11 over No. 3 Independence, setting the stage for a finals match on Thursday night.
The Lady Warriors will face No. 1 seeded El Diamante High School in the CIF championship. The match will start at 6:30 p.m. in Visalia.
The Warriors and Braves will tip-off the news season this upcoming Monday, Nov. 25 against the Paraclete Spirits in the THS gym. A handful of Warriors and Braves are still currently playing football, so the final rosters for basketball are still to be determined. Per CIF Central Section rules, athletes cannot participate in the new season (winter) sport until the current season (fall) sport has concluded. Paraclete defeated the Warriors during a pair of pre-season contests last season, once in an away pre-season game, 73-50, and again in the Rosamond Tournament, 56-47.
