Bearcats football team celebrates their victory on Dec. 5.

The Paso Robles High School varsity football team won the California Interscholastic Federation Southern Section North Division football championship title on Dec. 5, 13-10, which means that the Bearcats will go on to play for the Division III Suuth California State Championship.

The regional game will take place Saturday, Dec. 13 at 7:30 p.m. in Lakeside, which is 25 miles northeast of San Diego. The Bearcats (13-1) will take on the El Capitan High School Vaqueros (13-0). The Vaqueros defeated Rancho Bernardo 14-7 in the CIF San Diego Section Division II Championship game. This game will be the first time either team has gone to the CIF Regional Bowl.

Though the team will play 336 miles away from home, the Paso Robles High School Athletic Department is organizing busses to take Bearcat fans to the game. The bus will leave at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 13 and return on Sunday, Dec. 14 at about 6 a.m. The cost is $80 per person. In order to be sure there are enough people to fill the busses, Paso Robles High Assistant Principal Tom Harrington is asking for a quick response. Contact the athletic department as soon as possible by emailing or

Tickets to the game will be presold at the school’s ASB office Wednesday through Friday this week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The cost is $12 for adults and $8 for students, children 6 to 13 and seniors 65 and older.

“I recommend, if you are going to the game, you purchase presale tickets,” Harrington said. “The stadium at El Capitan has a seating capacity of about 6,000. I do not know how many they can accommodate in standing room only.”
