ONTARIO, CA; (08/25/2016) Gil Zendejas:

WELCOME TO OUR HOUSE...
ONTARIO, CA; (08/23/2016) Gil Zendejas:
After nearly 50 years, football has finally come HOME to Ontario High School. This Friday, August 26th, the Ontario Jaguars Varsity Football Team will finally play a true home game as they host the Ontario Christian Knights. For years, the Jaguars would have to mount a bus and travel to other district schools for their 'home' games. Montclair and Chaffey both had to alter their home schedules to allow the Jags an opportunity to host their games. But times and circumstances have changed. In 2012, local voters overwhelmingly approved "Measure P," a bond measure whose purpose was to improve every classroom, purchase new technology, and erect new facilities. The 848-million dollar measure insured that all District schools would enjoy similar facilities.
The Facilities Master Plan included a new stadium, swimming pool, parking lot and new ball fields at Ontario High School. After four years, and $26,155,173, Jaguars Stadium was dedicated and this Friday, Jaguars Football will play on their own field for the first time in history. Friday's game will also mark the first time Ontario ASB will host its first "Tailgate Party" from 5-6pm in the field adjacent to Jaguar Stadium. The evening will also feature Ontario Football Alumni who will escort the team onto the field.
The Jaguars took very little time off after their better than expected 5-5 finish to the 2015 season. Starting back in January, the team began walking through new plays, new systems and hitting the weights regularly. The boys are back, bigger and stronger than ever. This year, junior Luis Rivera will lead the team at quarterback. He is backed up by an equally talented junior Aaron Delgado, whose two running plays last year resulted in 80 yards and a touchdown. Coach John Kusleika returns as the Head Coach with returning coaches, Joe Szczepanski, Brian Martinez, Casey Workman, Hector Melgar, Gregory Keele, and new old D-line coach Chris Tandy.
Kickoff is slated for 7pm and tickets are going quickly.
A LONG TIME COMING, BUT FINALLY HERE
ONTARIO, CA; (01/17/2016) Gil Zendejas:
After nearly 50 years, Ontario High School finally had the opportunity to walk onto a true home field. The 5,000-seat state of the art and CIF-rated field was dedicated with more nearly 2,000 members of the school and community on hand. Ontario Mayor Paul Leon said, "We are looking forward to celebrating championships here." Chaffey District Superintendent Mat Holton led the long-awaited Dedication Ceremony bringing the large crowd to cheers over and over again.
The field will be ready for use by the end of February and the Class of 2016 will be the first to graduate on their own field.
