Sonoma sports scoreboard
Weekly reported results from Sonoma Valley High School athletic games, matches and tournaments, week ending April 4.
The Sonoma Valley cross country season ended early, as their final scheduled match for April 7 was canceled by their opponent, Napa Valley High. So the racing Dragons finished completion at Depot Park on March 31 against the traditionally strong Casa Grande team.
Senior Ryan Hengehold finished in 8th place in varsity boys, with a time of 19:52.1. In varsity girls, senior Carmen Carrillo finished in 6th place at 31:51.4.

Sonoma Valley won the JV competition as Casa Grande could not field a five-person team.
