Five PLHS athletes were recognized on all-CIF teams announced last weekend.

Leading the pack is senior track star Altan Mitchell, who won two events at the league championship meet and one event at the CIF championships.

Mitchell won the long jump (23 feet 5 inches) and the triple jump (46 feet 7.5 inches) at the Western League finals last month.

Mitchell then took first place in the triple jump (47 feet 10.25 inches) at the CIF championship meet to make him the only CIF champion this year among Pointer athletes.

Mitchell will be attending Brown University of the Ivy League next year.

In boys golf, junior Jackson Moss was named first team all-CIF. Only 10 golfers from the San Diego-Imperial County area were selected for the honor.

The Pointer baseball team produced three all-CIF second team selections.

Senior Anthony Hall, the team's first baseman, led the group. Hall is expected to be selected in the professional baseball draft that was held earlier this week.

Pitcher/outfielder Hunter Otjen, a  junior, was also selected along with sophomore shortstop Duce Gourson, both of whom will give the Pointers a strong nucleus in the 2020 season.
