Crystal Creamery has been recognizing victorious California high school teams on its milk cartons since 2012. Today, the Modesto-based creamery announced that Salesian College Preparatory’s Division VI champion football team is being honored on its cartons.
In December, the Pride football team defeated the Arlington-Riverside Lions in the CIF 6-A state championship game 42-21, earning their second straight championship title (the previous title occurred in 2019 due to the pandemic) and finishing the season with an 11-2 record.
With high school fall sports now in the rear-view mirror, Crystal Creamery is returning its commemorative milk cartons to honor the accomplishments of Salesian and other champion high school programs. According to Crystal Creamery, the commemorative cartons celebrating the Section Champion boys’ football and girls’ volleyball teams can be found at local grocery and convenience stores including Target, O’Brien’s Market, Cost Less, Mar Val, and Holiday Markets.
“Crystal Creamery is celebrating the successful return of high school sports this fall with these commemorative milk cartons,” said Brian Carden, senior director of sales and marketing for Crystal Creamery. He added, “We appreciate the hard work and commitment put forth by the athletes, coaches, families and schools.”
Crystal Creamery is a longtime sponsor of high school sports and the California Interscholastic Federation’s (CIF) Central, Sac-Joaquin and North Coast Sections. Since 2012, the company has honored more than 325 Section winning teams, scholar athletes and Hall of Fame members on commemorative milk cartons.
“The past two years have been a challenge for all of us, so having our partner, Crystal Creamery, recognize the Section Champions with these cartons is important for our student athletes,” said Pat Cruickshank, commissioner of the North Coast Section.
