The Barons will play host Friday night to Anaheim's Canyon High School in the 4-AA Division at Southwestern College.
"I've been encouraging them to write the ending to their story," said Assistant Coach Phillip Lomax. "It's a legacy. Fifty years this school has been open and they have never been in a championship, yet alone been in one. So they are writing a chapter in history for Bonita."
A history long in time but short in titles makes these milestones extra special for the Class of 2016.
If Bonita Vista beats Canyon, the Barons will advance to the school's first CIF State Championship and face either Sonora or Hanford High School.
