Dan Dalager (’68) sent us this note and clipping, which a classmate brought to their 1968 class reunion last weekend. Thanks, Dan, for sharing this great memory with us!
The world’s greatest surf club (Wind n sea) sent out a challenge to the rest of the county to take on their HS team (La Jolla HS). Radio station KGB sponsored the contest. It was the biggest event to hit the coastal area ever. Every day there were promos on the radio. The big question was whether any team could place even one competitor [who] could eke out a place against the mighty WnS. A small, backwaters team from some school called San Dieguito, from some place called Encinitas showed up to take on the behemoth.
If memory serves me, someone from WnS took 5th in the ladies division, but the other 5 of the top 6 went to SDHS. The SDHS men took the top 6 of 6. (Maybe it was the second year before WnS finally got someone in the top 6).
