Bear River agrees to re-schedule Pioneer Valley League opener
Placer High's quest to defend its Pioneer Valley League championship will have to wait. The Hillgals' match at Bear River scheduled for tonight has been cancelled due to an outbreak of the flu on the Placer team. Coach Jennifer Wright said 11 of Placer's 15 players were sick with the flu and two have been diagnosed with the H1N1 virus. Placer's match scheduled for Thursday at home against El Dorado may also be in jeopardy. "Our home game with El Dorado is questionable," Wright said. "I don't think we will have enough kids who are healthy enough to play."
