On Friday March 26 Panthers hosted the Atascadero Greyhounds for our second league meet of the season.  The boy's varsity had a big win and several first-place races:

Jericho Orcino- 100 breast

James Diaz- 200 IM

Liam Haas- 500 free

Adrian Eisner- 100 free

The boys also earned a first place in the 4x100 relay and the Medley relay

 The girls came up short but had some great strides of improvement.  

Monique Rivera had her personal best in the 100 breast 

Cali Perez also a personal best in the 100 breast

Jessica Rodrigues had a personal best in the 100 back

Lilo Munoz-Cervantes earned a 2nd place in the 100 butterfly


Women's Tennis

 On Friday March 26, our very young girl's tennis team took on Orcutt Academy.  After going down 4-2 in singles the ladies fought valiantly in doubles and won 2 of the 3 sets.  Unfortunately, we fell a little short with a final score of 4-5.  Our lady Panthers finish the season this week with matches against Mission Prep on Monday March 29 & Templeton on March 30.

On Monday March 29, our tennis match against Mission College Prep was close.  We lost three of the singles matches in tie breakers and beat them in doubles.  

Today we host Templeton HS for our final women's tennis match of the season.   


Cross-Country

Saturday March 27 was the Cross-Country team final competition of the year versus Mission Prep.

The girls' varsity and both jv teams cruised to easy wins because Mission Prep didn't have anyone for them to run against.  Top finishers were Makayla Gonzalez (GV), Kevin Beltran (BJV) and Leslie Magallon (GJV).

Mission Prep did bring 7 boys for their varsity team.  What an exciting race!!  In the end, Mission won 28-29.  🙁

PVHS Boys ran exceptionally well, led by freshman Juan Santiago.  Other runners for PVHS included Luis Campos, Orlando Marin, Adan Pina, Ethan Stenhouse, Nelson Torres, and Julien Ruiz.

The Girls Varsity finished the season 6-0.  They will be League Champions this year!!  That is the first time one of our Cross-Country teams has won the League Championship.

The Boys Varsity finished the season 3-3.  

Runners will now make the transition to Track and Field.  Our first meet is Thursday April 1 versus Righetti at PVHS. If any staff member wants to help at the meet, please contact Riccardo Magni rmagni@smjuhsd.org  


Men's Water Polo

The Boys' Water Polo team traveled to Nipomo High School on Saturday March 27, 2021 for the second game in a scheduled three game series with the Titans. The Panthers rebounded from their 16-10 loss on March 20 with a well-played effort topping the Nipomo 7, 12-4. The Titans are a well-coached and aggressive squad and they put a lot of pressure on the Panthers.

While the Pioneer Valley offense spread the scoring amongst six players; the real story of the day was the Panther’s stifling defense holding the Titans scoreless in the first quarter, allowing 2 goals in the second and one apiece in the third and fourth periods of play. Goalie Liam Haas played extremely well stopping eight quality shots from Nipomo while adding three assists and two steals.

Nipomo returns to the Pioneer Valley Pool on April 10 for the rubber match in the three-game series. 


Women's Water Polo

PVHS Girls' water polo played Paso Robles this past Saturday. Paso had strong swimmers on their team, and passed us on counters through the first quarter, which made for a bit of a rough game. All our novices in attendance were able to play and get some more experience in the pool, which is a great opportunity in such a short season.  Unfortunately, we lost against Paso, but we hope to improve and play them in the future.  We are all looking forward to our fourth game, April 10th at PVHS, 11 am against Morro Bay.


JV & Varsity Baseball

Saturday was a touch day for the PV Baseball program.  The JV lost 4-3 and the Varsity lost 9-8, both to Paso Robles.  Both games were very close and both levels had the winning runs on in the last inning but just could not get that timely hit.  For the JV Bobby Cantoral started on the mound and pitched very well, while Jonathan Barajas provided the runs at the plate.  For the Varsity Richie Robles came in relief and cooled off the bats of Paso and at the plate Adrian Valdovinos and Brendan Manriquez each had 2 hits.  It was a very close game against a Paso Robles team that has 3 Division 1 commits in their starting lineup.  This is another tough week with games against Righetti and Arroyo Grande for the JV and Atascadero and Arroyo Grande for the Varsity.


Women's Golf

Was not able to play yesterday as our opponent Righetti HS had to cancel.  The girls ended their season with a second-place finish.  Great job girls.
