Whitney High’s varsity girls soccer team beat visiting Sierra 1-0 on Thursday, advancing the Wildcats to the Sac-Joaquin Section, Division IV finals for the second season in a row. Whitney beat this same Sierra team for the section title a year ago. This year, on Saturday at 10 a.m. at Folsom High, Whiney will play West Campus for the section title. West Campus beat Colfax 2-1 on Thursday to advance to the finals. Whitney senior Elizabeth Grover scored the lone goal on Thursday about 28 minutes into the first half. Marisa Sievers had the assist. West Campus (21-1-1 overall) suffered its only loss of the season when it lost 1-0 to Franklin of Elk Grove on March 5. West Campus has scored at least two goals in 19 of its 22 matches.
