Photos by Stephen Harvey/Grossmont College photographer

January 25, 2013 (El Cajon)--Spring semester begins January 28 at Grossmont and Cuyamaca colleges in a restorative vein, with hundreds of classes added back as the result of California voters’ approval of Proposition 30, the governor’s sales and income tax measure.

The November victory at the polls allowed the colleges to restore 235 course offerings for the new semester that had been cut when the Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District approved its budget .The action was taken to prepare for the worst-case scenario of the district losing $5.6 million in funding had voters rejected Prop. 30.

BOYS HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL: FOOTHILLERS HOLD OFF SECOND HALF SURGE BY COUGARS IN 61-51 WIN

by Christopher Mohr

 

February 8, 2011 (El Cajon) - Friday night's (2/4) boys basketball game at Grossmont High School between the host Foothillers and the visiting Cougars from Steele Canyon High School was a critical game for the home team. Grossmont badly needed to win this game to avoid possibly falling three games behind Grossmont Hills League leader Helix. A 52-47 road loss to the Cougars on January 14 was also something they did not want to repeat. 

 
 
The game started pretty much the way the Foothillers wanted it to as they dominated in the first half and led 36-18 at halftime. A resurgent Cougars team put together an impressive second half where they had a 9-2 scoring run in the third quarter and outscored the Foothillers in the second half 33-25. It was not enough however, to allow the Cougars to overcome the early deficit they were in as the Foothillers held on to win 61-51. 
 

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: FOOTHILLERS SURVIVE TURNOVERS, HOLD ON TO 21-14 WIN OVER EAGLES

by Christopher Mohr

 

November 4, 2010 (El Cajon) - It's hard to argue with the old sports adage that says the scoreboard does not lie. The final score does after all, trump any yardage statistics, hypothetical situations known as 'ifs' and 'buts' and any excuses fans make to defend their team. While the scoreboard may not lie, it doesn't tell the whole story either. Such was the case Friday night (10/29) at Grossmont High School where the host Foothillers defeated the visiting Eagles of Granite Hills High School, 21-14.

 

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: AMBUSH IN THE HIGHLANDS - SCOTTIES WIN MUSKET WITH 41-0 BLOWOUT OVER FOOTHILLERS

by Christopher Mohr

 

October 25th, 2010 (La Mesa) - Domination. That word best describes how the Highlanders of Helix High School played last Friday night (10/22) in their homecoming game at Jim Arnaiz Field against the Foothillers of Grossmont High School. Not only did the Foothillers not score in this game, they could not get a first down from their own effort until near the end of the third quarter. The Highlanders' offense was as good at scoring points as their defense was at denying them and the end result was a 41-0 blowout win.

 

BOYS HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL: GROSSMONT NOT SATISFIED WITH 47-36 WIN AT STEELE CANYON

 

by Christopher Mohr

February 7, 2010 (Rancho San Diego) - Whoever coined the phrase, 'a win is a win', never met the Grossmont Foothillers' basketball team. If you knew nothing about the outcome of Friday night's game and observed the Grossmont players' demeanor afterwards, you would have been surprised to find out that they won. Although it's a game they would rather not talk about, the Foothillers survived their lackluster play and a late run by the host Steele Canyon Cougars to pull out a 47-36 win.

ACADEMIC LEAGUE # 4 FEATURED MATCH: GROSSMONT AT SANTANA

 

By Steve Haiman
Co-coordinator, GUHSD Academic League

December 9, 2009 (San Diego’s East County) -- The layoff for Thanksgiving did not slow up the four teams in week four’s featured match with the Santana “Sultans” hosting the Grossmont “Foothillers”.

In, fact all of the teams got right down to turkey…pardon the pun…from the very opening question right down to the last one. They were amazingly, evenly matched teams!
