Valley boys beat Elk Grove in Old School Rivalry game

After realignment moved their schools into different leagues last season, Valley boys basketball coach Mat Bradley and then Elk Grove coach Rudy Ortega decided that the Elk Grove Unified School District's two longest standing high schools, both with rich basketball traditions (17 league and five section titles between them), should continue to play one another for community bragging rights.

So they started the Old School Rivalry game.

Valley, which won the inaugural meeting 61-37 last year, held off the Thundering Herd again on Tuesday 53-50 to keep possession of the perpetual plaque that goes to the winning team.

Robert Perry led Valley with 19 points; Jason Williams topped Elk Grove with 14.
