Love that you all keep track of local sports. I just wish that Palo Alto Online would truly follow all local teams-- especially all Palo Alto teams. This article suggests that Gunn soccer has a slim postseason hope or that this is only the third time we have won back to back games-- fairly gloom and doom. In reality, we are presently the fourth automatic qualifier (if the season ended today). Our record is solid and three of our losses came against the same team (Mountain View-- league leader). More than this-- we beat Palo Alto High-- which receives more than its fair share of high school sports news. We controlled the game against SHP which isn't in Palo Alto but seems to receive a lot of local soccer attention. There are stories here-- first victory for Gunn over Palo Alto in over five years, first victory for Gunn over Monta Vista in over five years, etc. and yet the only thing all season that Palo Alto Online has reported about our team-- is how we are barely alive in the De Anza League. What about the story that Gunn will remain in the De Anza league for its third year...after not being able to do so back to back years for a decade? Name a team that you report on with pictures, full articles, and the like-- and we can beat them.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
