Rancho Cotate High School’s Coach Gehrig Hotaling is overcome with emotion as he hugs junior Mihalis Santorineos after his team defeats Las Lomas 7-0 in the NCS Championship game. Rancho (no. 2 seed) and Las Lomas (no. 1 seed) played against each other in the NCS Championship game Fri., Nov. 29 at Acalanes High School in Lafayette. This was probably the best birthday Coach Hotaling could have ever asked for: a championship win!
