Fundraiser Hopes to Make Big Profit
Sports Madness will raise funds to purchase uniforms and equipment for the school’s sanctioned sports. It is held on Saturday, March 8 from 6:30-10:30 p.m. at Michael’s at Shoreline Golf Course. The agenda for the evening is to have fun and raise money for the student athletes. All parents and community supporters are welcome.

“Each year the Athletic Boosters ask for the coaches to put their wish together for the sport they are coaching,” Co-President of the LAHS Athletic Boosters Pam Lytle said. “The wish list includes both varsity and junior varsity/frosh-soph teams.”

The fundraiser includes a social evening with a buffet dinner and dancing. Also, each sport puts together a basket that will be raffled off throughout the evening. There will also be some silent auction items. Included in the festivities are balloon poppers containing prize slips.


Boys Soccer Ends Season at 10-8-2
Although the boys soccer team had a successful season this year, finishing with a record of 10-8-2, they were moved down to the El Camino Division for next season.

The boys, seeded sixth in CCS, managed to defeat a majority of its competition, including Fremont High School, which eventually finished first in its division. Others managed to beat the school, but it was with difficulty. Gunn High School defeated the school during penalty kicks from a 1-1 game.

Boys soccer played their first CCS Division II game against Lincoln High School on Wednesday, February 13 at the school. The team lost 1-0.

Pool Shared With Mountain View
From Monday, January 28 to Friday, February 15, the school had to share the pool with rival Mountain View High School. Its swimming team was forced to practice at LAHS due to a renovation of Mountain View’s old pool.

Los Altos and Mountain View practiced simultaneously, with Mountain View occupying a few lanes. Mountain View also used the school’s equipment for its practice.

“We put a schedule together that would work for all the teams,” Athletic Director Kim Cave said. “Both schools were able to work together and never had any congestion issues.”

Mountain View’s pool repairs were completed during winter break.
