In their 2013-14 season home opener, the Sonoma Valley High School varsity basketball boys will tip off against a perennially strong nonleague San Marin team at 7:30 p.m. tonight in Pfeiffer Gym, preceded by the freshmen starting at 4:30 and the junior varsity playing at 6.
The Dragons then return to the nonleague road for a game at Mt. Diablo this Thursday, Dec. 12, before returning home to host Terra Linda on Friday, Dec. 20.
Over the weekend, the Sonoma varsity boys took a hoops trip to Clear Lake to compete in the Kelseyville-hosted Stokes Tournament and faced opponents from three widespread Northern California locations.
After falling 67-58 in the first round to a Colusa team that would eventually reach the tourney final, the Dragons bounced back in Friday’s loser’s bracket to defeat Woodside 48-36 and reach Saturday’s consolation championship game, where they stayed on the heels of South Fork for three quarters.
Unfortunately, Sonoma ended up falling short in its quest for the consolation title by dropping a 49-38 decision.
