The victory was bittersweet for a school still reeling from a horrific shooting.

But for students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, it was another way to honor the 17 people killed in the massacre there: a state title.

The school's ice hockey team won the state title with a pair of victories on Sunday.

Even in victory thoughts of the 17 students and staff killed in the February 14 massacre remained close to the team's mind.

"This wasn't for us. This was for the 17 victims," senior Matthew Horowitz told CNN affiliate WPLG. "No one was lacking energy in the locker room. We all came to play. We were all ready."

In an incredible coincidence, the team received 17 medals, one for each member of the squad. Since that's also the number of victims who were killed in the shooting, the team will use the medals to honor each victim.

July began on a seasonably hot note for northern California with plenty of sunshine, and fortunately very little wind. We'll have a minor cooling trend through Friday before more heat arrives for the holiday weekend.
