Spartans secure division title in boys basketball

In two years, the Mountain View High boys basketball team has gone from worst to first in the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League El Camino Division. The Spartans clinched the title with Friday’s 48-46 win at second-place Saratoga.

“Winning league is definitely a huge accomplishment for this group, seeing how far they have come the last two years,” said coach Kevin Mack, who last season took over a team that went 1-11 in league the year before. “So credit to our players for all they have put in, and they definitely earned this.”
