As noted today in the San Jose Mercury News, Harker football is in a new league this year. The team will compete in the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League (SCVAL), joining Harker’s boys volleyball, water polo and wrestling teams. Football teams from schools in the new league include Cupertino, Fremont, Lynbrook, Monta Vista, Santa Clara and Gunn high schools. Since many of these schools are geographically closer to Harker than past opponents, new bleachers on the visitor side of the field were added this summer to Davis Field. The San Jose Mercury article has an extensive appreciation of the team’s returning players and prospects for the season. Be sure to come watch the team in action at home and away, and don’t miss Homecoming, Nov. 11!
