Katie Kim and Gabbi Ilardi have raised the bar for their respective fall sports programs. Kim repeats as the Manteca Bulletin All-Area Girls Tennis Player of the Year after successfully defending her Sac-Joaquin Section Division II Individual Tournament singles title, solidifying herself as the most accomplished in Manteca High history. Meanwhile, Ilardi is a three-time All-Area Girls Golf Player of the Year following a third straight SJS Division V Tournament championship. Fellow Ripon High seniors Julio Pelaez and Annie Wild earned top honors for cross country, as they were the only runners from the area to qualify for the California Interscholastic Federation State Championships.
