The San Diego Mesa College Olympian Football team is off to a great start this season
with an undefeated record of 3-0. On Saturday, Sept. 23, the team will take on East
L.A. College for Homecoming.
“The last time the Olympians were 3-0 to start a season has been well over a decade,”
stated Head Coach Peter Lofthouse. “Ultimately, we are looking for a bowl game, however
our goal every day is to improve each day, and finish each week 1-0.”
To show their support and pride for the team, students, athletes, faculty and staff
gathered in the Mesa College Commons Quad for the Spirit Week Pep Rally on Thursday.
President Dr. Pamela Luster, Dean of Athletics Ryan Shumaker, and Head Football Coach
Peter Lofthouse fired up the crowd, acknowledged all the athletics teams and led multiple
chats of “We Are Mesa”.
The crowd cheered on the Mesa College Dance Team’s hip-hop performance, enjoyed free
popcorn, and played various games that were set up around the Quad.
Prior to the Homecoming Game on Saturday, Sept 23, Mesa’s Associated Students is hosting
a free family-friendly Tailgate Party full of booths, food, games, and fun from 4:00-6:00pm.
Once the Tailgate Party winds down, it will be time to cheer the Olympian Football
team on. Tickets are $7 GA, $5 students, staff, faculty and seniors, $2 kids under
12. Free entry will be provided to those who bring and donate non-perishable items
to The Stand, Mesa’s food and clothing pantry
