A classic wager

Councilman Charles Manne and Councilwoman Nancy Young donned Tracy High football jerseys at the regular City Council meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 1, paying off a friendly wager on the 18th annual Crosstown Classic football game between the Tracy High Bulldogs and the West High Wolf Pack.

Fellow Councilman Robert Rickman bet Manne and Young that Tracy High, Rickman’s alma mater, would beat West High, the school attended by Manne and by Young’s children. The loser promised to wear the opposing school’s football jersey during both October council meetings. 

Tracy High defeated West High 60-0 on Friday, Sept. 27, at Wayne Schneider Stadium.
