WITH Kennedy High School of Granada Hills securing its seventh city title – and its first since 2000 – the San Fernando Valley has once again demonstrated its baseball-diamond dominance. To win the championship, Kennedy had to defeat not one but two Valley powerhouses along the way, perennial contenders El Camino Real and Chatsworth. But Kennedy isn’t the only local champion. Over the weekend, Valencia High School, Oaks Christian and Viewpoint of Calabasas all secured titles in their respective boys’ volleyball divisions. High school sports play a vital role in teaching kids the virtues of teamwork, discipline and sacrifice. And as the latest batch of titles shows us yet again, the Valley area has a proud tradition of excellence in high school sports. We salute and congratulate all of our local champs – the players, their parents, their coaches and fans.
