William C. Overfelt High School is a public high school in the East San Jose area of San Jose, California. The principal is Vito Chiala.[1] Its athletic teams are known as the Royals.

History[edit]

Overfelt opened in 1962, making it the third-oldest school in the East Side Union High School District. Since 2005, most of the classrooms have been replaced or modernized.[2]

Athletics[edit]

The school has an outstanding wrestling team (a past State Champion), men's soccer team, and other sports teams. The women's tennis team has placed first in their league. The women's tennis team advanced to the Santa Teresa Division "B leagues" in 2008 and dominated that season, placing second in their league. By the summer of 2008, the tennis courts were resurfaced and the ladies continued to play their best. Competing against tough opponents, they placed fourth in the B leagues in 2009. Overfelt High School's women's varsity cross country team also had a good season by making it to CCS by placing 11th in the league finals. They ran at Toro Park and placed 12th at CCS.

Yearbook[edit]

Overfelt's yearbook, the Citadel, won National Scholastic Press Association Pacemaker awards in 1994,[3] 1998,[4] and 2000.[5]
