About the Team

 Winning back-to-back league titles, the Knights closed a historic 2018 season with an incredible 25-4 record, earned a program-first CCS Open bid, and was seeded second before advancing to the NorCal Div. I semifinals. The 2017 Knights brought home the Central Coast Section championship—its first since 2013 and its eighth in school history. Menlo then advanced to the second round of NorCals. Beginning with an 18-win season in the 2004 season, highlighted by the Peninsula Athletic League North Championship and a trip to the CCS Div. IV playoffs, the team went on to win five consecutive league titles, each with 20-victory seasons in 2005-2009. The Knights captured CCS championships in 2008, 2009, and 2013, advancing to the CIF state NorCal quarterfinals in each of those seasons.
