In CIF playoffs, three PLHS teams were eliminated in first-round play.

GIRLS’ SOCCER

The City League champion, and 11th-seeded Pointer girls soccer team dropped a 2-0 home match to sixth-seeded Rancho Bernardo, 9-10-4 overall (2-5-1, fourth place in the Palomar League).

The Pointers posted a final record of 11-8-3 after soaring to a 6-0-2 league mark.

Two late-season goals by senior Grayson Choy gave her five for the season, tying sophomore Taylor Hopkins for the team lead.

GIRLS’ BASKETBALL

In girls’ basketball, the 16th-seeded Lady Pointers had the unenviable task of facing top-seeded Eastern League champion Serra (23-6 overall, 10-0 in league).

Despite a good effort by PLHS hoopsters, they absorbed a 70-19 loss.

The Pointers finished 12-8 overall, 7-5 (fourth place) in Central League standings.

BOYS’ BASKETBALL

The Central League champion Pointers were given a No. 9 seed against No. 8 Westview, 20-8 overall (6-4 for third place in Palomar League) in their first-round Feb. 20 game in the PLHS gym.  

The Wolverines, down 16-13 after one quarter, used deadly three-point shooting in outscoring the Pointers 23-4 in the second frame to take a 36-20 halftime lead. The visitors laid a 65-40 whipping on the hosts, ending their season.

The Pointers ended their campaign with an overall record of 18-8 (12-0 in Central League).

Post-season honor went to Dillon Fitzmorris and Jamal Agnew (first-team, All-Central League) and Grant Wilburn (second team). Fitzmorris was also named “Player of the Year.”
