EYE ON THE BALL At bat

against Canoga Park, Girls

Softball player Alejandra

Hernandez (L) takes her

turn at bat. “It felt amazing

coming back onto that

field,” she said. “With the

encouragement from each

and every player throughout

the season, I can truly say

that I would never choose

a different group of girls to

play with.” Van Nuys beat

Canoga 7-3.

IN PURSUIT Track and

Field, like the other sports,

had to adjust to the times.

Track meets split the events

between schools, only allowing

athletes from the

same school race eachother

to minimize spread in case

of outbreak. Lesley Lutin

is leading the charge with

Emily Finnegan (L), Arianna

Villalobos (R) and Sabrina

Chase (far right) in the rear.
