The Pinewood School baseball team made history last year by winning a league title and qualifying for the playoffs – both firsts for the program. With all but two players returning, the Panthers expect to at least match that success this season.

“Our goal is to definitely win league,” said senior Jackson Haun, whose team is off to a 3-0 start in the Private School Athletic League South Division. “We want to repeat and go as far as possible in CCS.”

Simar Singh holds the award she won for placing first in the women’s division of the San Francisco City Golf Championship.

It’s a good thing golfer Simar Singh likes match play, because she could be playing plenty of it the next four years.

“My two biggest wins have been in match-play tournaments,” said Singh, referring to the 2015 California Women’s Junior Championship and last month’s San Francisco City Golf Championship. “So that gives me a lot of confidence that I can hopefully contribute to bringing the team to nationals.”
