Reconstructed Torrey Pines High School Patch obstacle course celebrated

TPHS athletes work out on the new Patch.

Thanks to a $25,000 grant from the Carmel Valley-based Egoscue Foundation, Torrey Pines High School has an upgraded Patch obstacle course on campus. A ribbon cutting and demonstration by Torrey Pines cheerleaders and football players was held April 30.

“We’re really excited to keep the Patch legacy alive at Torrey Pines,” said Jill Huerta, the Egoscue Foundation’s director.

Pete Egoscue, founder of The Egoscue Method, built the Patch obstacle course 12 years ago at Torrey Pines High for the purpose of physical training. He was inspired by those used by the United States Military. It has helped with the careers of former Charger Junior Seau, NFL player and TPHS alumni John Lynch, former Padres Trevor Hoffman, Dave Roberts and Mike Sweeney. Last year the New York Giants’ Justin Tuck even stopped by for a workout, to the delight of the surprised Falcon football team members.

“Over the years, we really loved having the Patch but it had fallen into a little bit of disrepair,” said TPHS Principal Brett Killeen.

Killeen said the school didn’t have “a lot of cash laying around” to fix the course so they were very happy when Egoscue stepped up with the funding.

The Egoscue team worked on the course over the weekend and students on Monday were put through a series of challenging exercises to break it in.
