Irvington forfeits opening win to Ygnacio Valley

Irvington High’s football team has forfeited its opening win on Sept. 6 against Ygnacio Valley due to the use of an ineligible player, Irvington coach Zach Silvernale confirmed today.
Silvernale said that he noticed on a player’s transcript that the player had taken the wrong summer school class and was ineligible, and Silvernale reported it. Silvernale said the player competed in the Vikings’ first two games, but Irvington’s second game was already a loss (to Acalanes).
Irvington’s record is now 2-2 overall. Ygnacio Valley’s record is now 1-4 overall.

Girls Volleyball: Clayton Valley, Rankings, Standings

As expected, and as usual, the East Bay Athletic League will be a season-long battle where a number of teams will be in the running for the league title. This is to be expected.
However, there is another league that may be a little more compelling. Not just because a number of teams will be competing for the league title, which there will be, but because it is a league where there is a lot of new blood.
