West Hills Falls 2-0 in Roller Hockey Title Game
Westview High wins its third straight championship in a rare shutout.

With no roller rinks remaining in the East County after the closure of Santee's Rollerskateland two years ago, the number of schools with roller hockey teams remaining in the Grossmont Conference dwindled to one. So it came as a huge surprise to find that West Hills High has developed into a powerful program.
From practicing on outdoor asphalt basketball courts on the north side of the school's football stadium to playing games some 20 miles away in National City, a Wolf Pack program that benefitted from an influx of ice hockey players achieved a No. 2 ranking among schools in the San Diego Section.
The (CA) San Diego Metropolitan League is the only state sanctioned High School Roller Hockey League in the US.
