September will prove to be a busy month as league play begins in all of the four fall sports

JV Volleyball also has a 2-2 record with wins against Eastlake and La Jolla Country Day. Varsity Volleyball is battling back from a 1-3 record and is hoping to build on a dominant 3-0 set performance over Mission Vista.

Golf

Both JV teams had their first matches of the year. The JV program is 1-2 overall and has already made great strides since tryouts. Varsity Golf is 2-2 in non-league play. The earned victories against Bonita Vista and University City High School. The Pilots also faced off against two tough opponents versus Francis Parker and defending CIF Division I Champs Rancho Bernardo High School. Although they came up short in both matches, they proved that OLP will not shy away from any competition.

Tennis

The Pilots participated in the annual First Serve Tournament, hosted by Valhalla and Granite Hills High School. Both JV and Varsity participated and played 5 rounds of matches. JV came in 1st place, winning their entire draw and only dropping one set all day. They defeated Westview in the championship round. Varsity finished in 2nd place, winning four rounds before coming up short against San Dieguito in the finals. Both teams worked hard and performed well.  Overall, it was a great day for the Pilots!

Dance and Cheer

While games and matches are always notable, the countless hours of preparing for performances is also worth noting. Both our Dance and Cheer teams continue to practice every day of the school week. Whether it’s morning or afternoon practices, you can count on one of these two teams working on their routines for cheer competitions and Saints football games. Go Pilots!!!
