The 2017 Knights brought home the section championship—its first since 2013 and its eighth in school history. Menlo then advanced to the second round of NorCals. The Knights won five consecutive league titles, each with 20-victory seasons in 2005-2009.Menlo captured CCS championships in 2008, 2009, and 2013, advancing to the CIF state NorCal quarterfinals in each of those seasons.
