The game helped Will Sampson score his 13th goal of the season and pushed the team’s goal count to 78 this season. The PVHS crowd was eccentric cheering their team to victory while awaiting the final game.


     On February 8th, the final Bay League game for the season was against the long-time rival, Peninsula High School, with an unfortunate loss of 0-1. However, both teams played really well, especially in the foggy conditions that affected this game. Yet, PV finished the season tied with Mira Costa for 2nd place and will be traveling to Long Beach Millikan on Thursday, 2/16/17 for a 1st round CIF game at 6 PM.

     Surf: Despite the rain, PV surf made a “wave” in the competition with Rodney Buck being a star player in his heat. Yet while they lost to Redondo, short boarding was still good and powered through competition.


     With PV High having strong representation in men’s shortboard, however, with Briggs Peus and Rodney Buck coming in first place in their own heats. Emma Anderson proved to be a tough competitor and powered past her competition taking first place in women’s longboarding.


     Water Polo: Varsity girls water polo had some of their best games this season, as PV took on league-champion Redondo all they way till after overtime with an unfortunate loss of 9-10. But PV came and defeated Peninsula at home with a win of 7-6. Eventually taking on Torrance High School with a victory to conclude the season.


     Overall, PVHS has had quite a big two weeks with final games for soccer, surf, and water polo with rival games and upcoming CIF games in the future.
