Nothing changed about the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls’ soccer team’s typically arduous schedule in the 2007-08 season.
If anything, it was one of the toughest the Tologs took on in recent years, as 22 of their 24 contests were played against CIF Southern Section Division I or CIF playoff-bound teams and five of their opponents went on to capture their respective league titles.
And there are never any matches off in Sacred Heart’s own stacked Mission League.
Nonetheless, it was a season to remember. The Tologs posted their best-ever Mission League mark of 6-3-1 — during a league campaign including program records of five shutouts and an eight-game unbeaten streak — and earned the program’s first home playoff game since 1997, while qualifying for the Division I playoffs for the fifth time in six seasons.
