The Rams showed a lot of promise this season, so City College fans had high hopes of seeing their team take home a win against Ohlone. But despite the players’ best efforts and a strong start, they couldn’t secure the victory, ending the season on a loss on April 29.
Coach Labagh attributed the team’s success to their heavy pressure against the opposition. “We can pressure without fouling. We’re gonna wear teams down with our bench.”
More than 150 years after the ancestral homeland of the Ohlone indigenous was brutally taken, the Association of Ramaytush Ohlone is working on the rematriation of their homeland to give back what was seized from the community.
Given the massive diversity in languages, family groups, customs, and cultures, the native people of the northern and central California coasts likely would not have seen themselves as belonging to any single common group prior to the arrival of the Spanish. To some degree, this persists today, with many local Indigenous people self-identifying primarily as members of one or more of approximately 58 distinct regional cultures that are grouped under the umbrella-term “Ohlone.”
The Rams defeated the Renegades in consecutive matches (25-17, 25-16, 25-18) and improved to 2-0 (7-8 overall) in conference play.
