Whale of a Day Marks 34th Year

Communinty

• Longtime community event continues to draw visitors and residents along with some whales.

By Nina Li The 34th annual Whale of a Day event took place on April 14 this year and drew larger crowds than expected, despite being postponed from March because of rain. This event is held by Los Serenos de Point Vicente and the city of Rancho Palos Verdes. The event, which features games,

crafts, performances and a bouncy house for children, celebrates the migration of the Gray Whale from the Bering Sea to Baja California. There were many booths set up and manned by volunteers who offered an environmental education for children and adults. Overall, the event was a day at which Palos Verdes residents and visitors were able to celebrate the whales and have fun with their family on a nice day Christina Wang, a Peninsula High School junior, participated in Whale of a Day for the second year in a row. She is a junior docent with Point Vi-

cente and was helping out with setting up the event as well as assisting other people. “For me, the most enjoyable thing was going around the booths, listening to the live music, looking at art submissions and other fun activities,” Wang said. “I also enjoy whenever a whale appears, and we all get to see it. I have learned a lot about other things other than whales, too, like the native plants and animals.” Other booths sold jewelry and artwork, showcasing the items from small

By Alexis Ferguson I live by the ocean, so you would think I would like seafood, but I don’t. At seafood restaurants, I can always find something to eat so I was very optimistic about going to Fishing with Dynamite in Manhattan Beach. Chef David LeFevre also owns Manhattan Beach Post and The Arthur J. I was expecting a few dishes to choose from that didn’t have seafood, but I was pleasantly surprised to find at least five items to choose from. I ordered the clam chowder even though I picked out the clams. When the soup came, I could see the clam still in the shell which is so fresh. The soup was light and creamy and even had bacon. Bacon goes well with anything, but was exceptional in this dish because the bacon made the soup smokey. Next, I tried the grilled spigarello

with chili flakes, roasted garlic, and parmesan. I had never heard of this vegetable before, so I was excited to try it. I would describe it as kale with a crunchy broccoli stem. The vegetable was charred which adds so much flavor and was juicy and tender. For dessert I tried the key lime pie which is my favorite dessert. I have been to Key West and tried the best pie there but the pie I tried

at Fishing with Dynamite is a definite runner-up. The crust was sweet and crumbly, and the curd was tart and so smooth. I don’t like seafood, but I would eat at Fishing with Dynamite any day of the week no doubt.

PEN Volleyball Wants Strong Finish

Boys Volleyball

• Peninsula High boys’ volleyball is ready for a strong end to its season.

By Daniel Meyerhof Peninsula High volleyball is looking to finish its season strong these upcoming weeks. The Panthers are 18-7 and right in the thick of their Bay League schedule. Peninsula needs to rebound from losses to Mira Costa and Redondo Union with strong performances against Inglewood and Valencia. Peninsula has plenty of star power with three college commited players, including outside hitters Akim Akinwumi, Erick Boisvert and Zach Brill. Brill and Bosivert are both captains this season and are headed to UC Merced and Concordia University, respectively.

Another bright spot for the Panthers has been sophomore outside hitter Clarke Godbold. He started as a freshman and says his team has grown significantly this season. ‘’Everyone on our team has grown in some part of their game. Whether It’s been mental or physical there has been improvement this year for sure,” Godbold said. Godbold also has his eyes set on a match with rival Palos Verdes May 1 in the regular season finale. Palos Verdes narrowly beat Peninsula in their first team matchup. According to junior outside hitter John Skoblar, what has helped this team play well is the closeness of the team off the court. “We bond by having fun off the court and just being able to talk to each other,” Skoblar said.

Local Residents Have A Whale of a Day

Sea Kings Defense Protects The Net . . . The Palos Verdes High School boys’ varsity lacrosse team is 15-3 overall and 4-0 in Bay League after a comfortable win over Peninsula High Tuesday to end the regular season.

. . . Continued from Page 4 shops nearby. The Aquarium of the Pacific provided a touch pool for people to learn about different sea creatures. There was also a petting zoo where little kids were able to feel goats. High school volunteers associated with different volunteer groups helped out with the craft stations and made different do-it-yourself activities with the children. “My favorite part of the event is the puppet show, raffle and silent auction,” said Amy Kurino, publicity chairperson. “This year’s Whale of a Day T-shirts look good! Sorry if you missed it, really!”

Whale of a Day is a place to learn about the animals who migrate every year as well as a place to enjoy family time and have fun. The vibe of the whole event is amazing with so many people interested in learning about the whales and many interactive activities for children. “This was my first year attending Whale of a Day,” said Peninsula High junior Loren Kim. “It was really interesting to see the migratory patterns of whales since I take Environmental Science at school. I learned a lot and had a lot of fun with all my friends and family.”

Panthers’ Dance Takes Over Armstrong Theatre

Dance

• Senior-heavy dance team finishes season off in style. The Choreo Dance teams from Peninsula High School held their annual Momentum shows last week, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights, at the Armstrong theater in Torrance. The dancers have been preparing for the shows since before school started, learning and perfecting various routines of differing styles, from jazz to contemporary to hip hop. In addition to the routines the dancers learned in the summer, the program also emphasized the importance of creativity, with student choreographed pieces.

Hope Golida, Maya Cardinali, Sophia Chen, John Szieff and Lina Pearson are some of the dancers from the Company Choreo team who choreographed pieces for the team. The show was an overall success, with large crowds present all three of the nights. The Choreo program now has to say goodbye to more than 20 seniors, but looks forward to new members next year. — Lily Shah

Top Teams Begin To Separate Little League • A few teams have taken control of their divisions while others have fallen back and are in a tight race for first. The Rolling Hills Red Sox have collected 10 wins and have taken control of its Major Division as has the Dodgers in the Silver Spur Minors Divisions. In the Lunada Bay Major Division each team with six wins has plenty of games left to play to see who will finish the season in first place. The Rolling Hills Minors Blue Jays are the only team on the Peninsula that has yet to suffer a loss, while only three teams have only taken one.

Home Run List Not Like It Used To Be No More POW!

• Only the mighty few will see their names on the legendary Panorma home run list.

By Timothy Niemann In August 2015, USA baseball announced that it would change its bat requirements, effective on Jan. 1, 2018. Many youth organizations, including Little League, now use new metal bats that perform like wood bats, that is, with less power. Real wood bats are still approved for play. Palos Verdes Little League players use the smallest Majors field (Valmonte) on the Hill. In the 2017 season, 39 PVLL players, some of them at Intermediate level, hit a combined 114 home runs. Home runs are a part of Palos Verdes baseball tradition. PVLL tends to dominate the home run stat compared to other leagues on the Hill. But that isn’t the same picture this season. So far this season there have been only 11 home runs hit by a combined four batters. All of the home runs have come from Majors players. The bat change has definitely affected the home run stat, but is it the only reason? A few years ago, Little League International lowered the age requirements, leaving very few, if any, 13-year-old players. Meaning that there are younger kids playing in all divisions. There are no older 12-yearolds bombing the ball anymore. Could that be a reason for the dip in home runs? The age change has affected all divisions, not just

Majors. Minors used to have a pair of home runs a year. Unheard of anymore. Last season, there were a handful of Intermediate Penin home runs. None so far this season.

The University of Puget Sound, a liberal arts college in Tacoma, Wash., will be Semenjuk’s home for the next four years. She discovered the school on her own and loved every aspect of the campus, education, and college in general. “I later learned that the swim coach wanted me on the team, and that I would fit in nicely there,” Semenjuk said. “From that point on, my love for the school only grew.”

Mitchell of Culver City took the girls’ 400 with a personal record time of 59.23.

Football Season Starts Early At Peninsula High

Powder Puff

• Last week the the much anticpated Powder Puff football game took place at Peninsula High School.

By Chiara Grimes An annual game that features girls playing flag football with varsity football players as coaches is an exciting event that switches the roles of football players and girls. Every year the Powder Puff game pits juniors against seniors, with senior football players coaching the senior girls and the junior football players coaching the junior girls. Prior to the game, each team had practices to learn how to play the game, with specific plays to run. After practice the coaches picked players for offense and defense based on the girls’ skills. Last year the juniors won so the seniors this year were dedicated to winning, because it was their last chance to

play. The girls all wore their class colors (the juniors wore green while the seniors wore blue) with their graduating number on the back. The game ended with a win for the juniors. Despite the loss, the seniors had many great plays, often passing the ball, while the juniors typically ran the ball. “I had no idea what to expect going into the game, but I got the hang

There was even an interesting twist to the event, with the junior boys and senior boys being cheerleaders and both sides putting on an amusing halftime show.

Powder Puff is a concept that has been going on for decades between girls and football players, and the tradition is something each side has looked forward to. “I was on defense, and it was really fun learning about strategy and then putting that knowledge into the game,” said Amalia Munn, a defender for the juniors.

The touchdowns for the juniors came from Izzy Pack, who got two, and the other one by Sydney Bombardekar. Pack also won MVP honors for offense, while Amalia Munn won MVP honors for defense. “It was kind of funny when the coaches would yell at us to guard 18 and then realize everyone’s number was 18,” said Bombedekar, speaking

about the challenges of everyone having the same number. Overall, all the participants and spectator thoroughly enjoyed it and the football players worked hard coaching the girls. The juniors are looking forward to next year’s game when they get a chance to play the (now) sophomores.
