Dear Pointer,

In this issue you will find a wrap-up report for PLHS Fall sports.  Perhaps it will spark memories of your years at PLHS playing on a team!  We would love to have stories and pictures from your PL days.  We will put them in the eUpdates so others can reminisce.

The past two weeks have brought tragedy to PLHS through the loss of two students in separate incidents.  We wish their families and friends well. 

The loss of members of our Pointer family reminds us to be grateful for the friendships we establish during our formative years in high school and mindful of the impact those friendships made on the people we are today. 
Once a Pointer, Always a Pointer, Forever a Pointer!

 Have a peaceful, and joyous Holiday season.

Fall Sports Wrap


Story and photo by Scott Hopkins


Despite matching undefeated eventual champion Cathedral Catholic's two touchdowns, the Pointers lost a hard-fought 20-14 CIF Division III quarterfinal match Nov. 28 on the victor's field, ending their dream of a fourth-straight appearance in Qualcomm Stadium.

The Pointers finish the season with a 6-5-1 record and a tie for second place in the Western League (3-1-1).

Quarterback Keegan Fitzgerald (3) scrambles for the Pointers as Moe Smith (50), James Fink (55) and Zach Gemmill (26) provide blocks.

"We (the coaches) are proud of you guys," said an emotional head coach Mike Hastings in the locker room following the game. "You didn't leave anything out there on that field," he added as tears streamed down the faces of many exhausted players.

A large number of returning players and strong Junior Varsity and Freshman teams (both won league titles with 5-0 records) provide a bright outlook for next
