Mountain View High last week did what no team has done since 1999 – beat gymnastics juggernaut St. Francis at the Central Coast Section championships.
The Spartans ended the Lancers’ 16-year reign as CCS champion May 18 at Gymtowne in South San Francisco. But it was close: Mountain View scored a 149.750 and runner-up St. Francis totaled 149.299.
