Varsity Boys Football
Sacred Heart Prep 13, Menlo School 7
Date of competition: Saturday, December 1, 2012
In a battle between the No. 1 offensive team in the Central Coast Section and the No. 2 defensive team, it was Sacred Heart Prep's defense that proved too tough to beat as the No. 2-seeded Gators handed No. 4 Menlo School a 13-7 defeat in the CCS Division IV championship game on a rainy Saturday night at Terra Nova High in Pacifica. It was SHP's second section title in three years, the first coming in 2010.
Sacred Heart Prep got two interceptions from senior Jack Del Santo, the second coming 1:14 left in the game, to seal the victory and improve to 12-1 -- the best football record in school history. The Knights, meanwhile, finished 10-3.
