Editorial: Let's celebrate our champions Saturday in a great parade

Historic state-championship wins by two Palo Alto High School teams — women's volleyball and varsity football — are well worth a community celebration.

The City of Palo Alto is to be commended for coming up with an appropriate recognition: a gala parade through downtown Palo Alto starting at 4:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon, starting at Webster Street and Univeristy Avenue and winding up in front of City Hall.

Volleyball coach David Winn and football coach Earl Hansen will ride in open cars. Hansen will receive an extra dose of recognition for being named "Coach of the Year" this week for the Central Coast Section by the ESPN RISE Cal-Hi Sports, becoming only the sixth CCS coach to win that honor since 1970. This combination is unprecedented and deserves a celebration.
