Following their victory the Santa Cruz Sentinel reported: "Thousands of the team's fellow students joined teachers, firefighters, district faculty and a who's who of city officials, including Watsonville Mayor Ana Ventura Phares, in a celebration of the team and its accomplishments this season. 'Isn't it wonderful to have such a championship team here in Watsonville?' said Mary Anne Mays, Pájaro Valley Unified School District superintendent (January 26, 2005).
The Santa Cruz Sentinel reported, "...it didn't take Monroy (PVHS Senior) long to realize he
had the talent to run with some of the best soccer players in the world..." (2007), and "There's never really a shortage of quality athletes for Watsonville's teams" (2005).
