Valley Center High School and Olympian High School already have this color scheme (Teal, Black, and Gold), and both have a student enrollment    similar to what Sage Creek will have when the school has all four grade levels (student enrollment numbers are what CIF uses to form athletic leagues).

** After consulting with a uniforms sales rep, it was determined that this color scheme would not be attainable using standard vendors.

*Please note that the uniform and “SC” lettering designs are used for the purpose of providing a mock up for the three different color combinations.  Actual uniform styles may vary from these samples.
