Cody Naporano, playing center for the Jr. Sharks, tallied four goals and 10 assists during his team’s nine-game playoff run.

A year ago, Los Altos resident Cody Naporano couldn’t have imagined the success his Jr. Sharks ice hockey team would achieve this season. The Bantam-level squad had just completed a one-win campaign he described as “very horrible.”

This year, the Jr. Sharks won 34 games and were crowned state champions of the 14U B division earlier this month.

When Los Altos High last won a Central Coast Section championship in gymnastics, team members were probably into tapered jeans, Madonna’s “Vogue” and the rom-com “Pretty Woman.”

That was 1990. This may be the year the Eagles finally win another CCS crown.

With so many local high school teams and individual athletes excelling on every level – league, section, region and even state – it was tough to whittle down the list of the Town Crier’s top sports stories of the year to only 10.

So, with apologies to those who missed the cut, here’s the countdown.
