Pointer alumni came to Pete Ross Stadium by the thousands on Oct. 12 under temporary lighting to get their first look at the beautiful new Bennie Edens Field.
After the stadium seating was filled, the crowd spilled onto the field beyond the end zones, as alums sought out friends from their days at the 87-year-old school.
Countless barbecued hamburgers and hot dogs were consumed and school logo items were purchased as alums enjoyed a rousing 34-7 Pointer victory over rival
La Jolla High.
At halftime, the crowd reminisced as the high-energy entries by current students in the annual float parade and dance contest performed.
Judges awarded the seniors first place, followed by the juniors, sophomores and freshmen.
The night illustrated the school’s motto: “Once a Pointer, Always a Pointer.”
