LHS can boast of an athletic history that spans more than a century. The first LHS team – girls basketball – first competed in October of 1907. Soon after the formation of that team, LHS added a boys baseball team, a tennis team, and a track team. Vertically-striped uniforms of the 1960s inspired the adoption of zebras as our mascot, and in 1967, by popular demand, our school adopted a new mascot design, created by an LHS student, along with the adjective “fighting.”
In recent years, the Fighting Zebras have made our school well known in the Pioneer Valley League (PVL) and the Sac-Joaquin Section of the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF). Fighting Zebras often earn the title of PVL MVP, and in 2015-2016 our baseball, boys soccer, and wrestling teams all won PVL championships. Our baseball team has won back-to-back section championships, while our girls and boys golf teams have won section championships as well. In addition to a full selection of officially-sanctioned high school sports, LHS also offers trap/shooting teams, dance and cheer teams, and High School Rodeo.
