They talked about their job and gave advice on becoming a serious journalist. On the same day, Peninsula staff writers participated in a write-off against other journalism students. Categories for these competitions included writing news articles, features, editorials, headlines, and more.

• Peninsula High students learn more about journalism at JEA national conference in Indianapolis last week.

By Nina Li Fifteen students from Peninsula’s newspaper and yearbook classes flew to Indianapolis Nov. 10 to take part in the Journalism Education Association (JEA)/National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA) convention. The event took place in a span of three days and offered classes for writers, editors and photographers. The sessions helped students to improve layout designs, writing techniques and the handling of controversial subjects impartially JEA is directed by Linda Puntney and has been around since 1924. The NSPA was founded in 1921. The NSPA president is currently Albert Tims.

Students from both Peninsula and Palos Verdes high schools attended the national journalism conference during a field trip to Indianapolis last week. During the actual convention, students took at least three classes a day designed to help them improve their journalistic abilities. Speakers for the classes ranged from high school teachers to people who own huge businesses in the journalistic world. Some featured speakers included Larry Buchanan, graphics editor at

the New York Times; Thomas French, a Pulitzer prize winner for journalism; Naomi Pescovitz, an Emmy Awardwinning journalist and many more. The convention also allowed students to share newspapers and yearbooks with other schools. The shared information helps other schools improve their programs. The hundreds of schools there all brought their own publication issues and books. “The convention really sparked my interest in designing my pages better,” said Peninsula High Focus editor Emily McGinn. “I have a lot more creative ideas that I can use to make the layout I am making pop out more and attract more readers,” she said.

The Palos Verdes High Triton Yearbook and the Live from 205 team also attended the JEA/NSPA Fall National Convention in Indianapolis last week. The Triton Yearbook 2016 achieved the top critique award from the National Scholastic Press Association. Today, in Indianapolis at the JEA/NSPA Fall National Conference, Adviser Ms. Pavelka was presented with the plaque.

A Culinary Journey

Homemade Granola Is A Perfect Fall Accessory By Alexis Ferguson

The possibilities are endless. What I like to do is to start out with a basic recipe and then add on stuff I like or is in season. I start by mixing old-fashioned oats with my choice of nuts, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Then in a small saucepan over medi-

One go-to recipe I always have on hand is granola. I never get sick of granola. Granola is one of those recipes that is so simple to make that you should never buy it from the store. One thing I love about granola is that it never turns out the same in a

good way. Granola sometimes has more of a nutty flavor or maybe a little toastier than other batches. Another aspect of granola I love is the many ways you can make it Add chocolate chips and marshmallows and you have s’mores granola. Add your favorite nuts and dried fruit.

um heat I combine oil, honey, and sugar together until it comes to a simmer. I then remove it from the heat and add in vanilla. I then combine the wet and dry ingredients until the oats are totally coated. I then evenly distribute the granola on a sheet pan and cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally so the granola is evenly baked. I then let it harden and then crumble it so there are different sizes of granola clusters. One ingredient that is super popular during the fall is pumpkin. Another great way to use pumpkin is to make pumpkin spice granola. Add pumpkin puree to the wet ingredients and pumpkin pie spice and pecans to the dry. I love eating granola with yogurt, milk, or even as a snack alone! If you have any questions or comments, please contact me at culinaryjourneybyalexis@gmail.com

PV Football Builds On Success

• Sea Kings junior Cooper Gardner experiences another exceptional season with coach dad at the helm.

By Jenna McFarland Palos Verdes High School has had an outstanding season, so far, and it’s not over yet. With only one close loss in Bay League, to Mira Costa, PV is tied for first, sharing the League title with both Mira Costa and Redondo, all with 4-1 league records. Moving into the post-season, Palos Verdes won its first CIF playoff game, against St Francis High School, on Friday, Nov. 12, at San Pedro High. PV came away from this tough game with a 38-37 victory. The Sea Kings are set to play the quarterfinals of CIF division three on Friday, Nov. 18, against Los Alamitos High. There are high hopes for this CIF run as the team continues to work hard and play harder. Looking back on the season, players have overall good sentiments about their experiences. PV junior Cooper

Profile

Gardner has nothing but good things to say about his experience. When asked about what makes this team special, Gardner said, “The team this year is very close and has great unity, which is a real advantage because football relies on the strength of the team.” Hard work has been a large part of the team’s success, but it is not the most important thing. According to Garner, “One of the reasons our team has had success this year is because of our close relationships with each other.” Along with being a varsity player and a great asset to PV’s team, Gardner has had a unique experience being head coach Guy Gardner’s son. When asked about how his relationship with the head coach has affected

Everything Is Moving In Her Direction

• Senior captain Riley O’Donnell leads Sea Kings to CIF championship.

By Michael Liu The high school tennis season was in full force at Palos Verdes High School when varsity Senior Captain Riley O’Donnell led the Triton (Sea Kings) to a victory over archrival Peninsula High School in the last match. O’Donnell’s road to becoming a ranked Southern California player began when she picked up a racquet at age nine when a good friend introduced her to the sport. A natural athlete, O’Donnell began playing in United States Tennis Association tournaments a year later. O’Donnell had been playing soccer competitively, but she later decided to focus on tennis because of her “passion for the game and the individual aspect of the sport,” as opposed to the teamwork soccer requires. On Nov. 11, O’Donnell and her team captured the California Interscholastic

Federation (CIF) Southern Section Division 2 championship. The victory was a complete upset because the last time PVHS won this title was in 1974. In no other sport, except perhaps boxing and fencing, is there such a battle of two gladiators as in singles tennis. All the great athleticism, sharp thinking and endurance fall on the single contenders. O’Donnell competes in USTA tournaments frequently and is currently ranked 53rd among girls 18 and under in Southern California. On the court, O’Donnell fastens her attention to the ball. For her, playing tennis lets her “forget everything and focus on the game,” said O’Donnell. Nonetheless, she strives for a balance of tennis, academics, and time with friends. When asked about her future, O’Donnell said she is planning on majoring in psychology and business. Regardless of whether she carries on with the sport in college, it is clear that her success on the court will serve her well in life off the court.

his experience, Gardner said, “It comes with its advantages and disadvantages, but most of the time I disregard that my dad is the coach.” According to Gardner, the team disregards the relationship as well. I am “treated the same as everyone else, by both the coaches and the players,” Gardner said. The fair treatment of everyone has made the season a great experience, full of success and allows every player to continue to thrive. Although PV High football demands much from its players, the cost is worth it because the players love being part of the team. When asked about the program as a whole, Gardner said, “It’s a fun experience, and playoffs are exciting because of the challenge that our bracket presents to the team.” As said best by Gardner, “Playoffs are going to be challenging for PV High, but with all the hard work, team unity and the passion for the game, the Sea Kings are bound to succeed with a long run in CIF.

Dance And Tennis Fit Well For PEN Student

. . . Continued from Page 2 Lee began dancing when she was only six years old. Prior to high school, she competed with the team at The Studio from nine to 13 years old and joined Varsity Dance as a freshman. Lee did not join the tennis team until her sophomore year and was only 13 when she began to compete

competitively in tennis. When asked how she manages a hectic schedule, Lee said, “Balancing two sports is definitely difficult but to be able to play both I had to learn how to manage my time wisely and not to procrastinate.” Lee feels as though the ability to play both sports has given her the opportunity to grow in each area. “Dance has taught me how hard work is key even when you’re dead

Panthers Football Season Overview . . .

Following the early end of the season last year, there has been tremendous improvement within the Peninsula football team and coaching staff. At the annual season-ending PEN vs. PV game, the student sections from both schools, the Zoo and the Red Tide, were great and made the game vibe a lot more stimulating. Prior to the game, PV had a barbeque for

both PV and PEN students to encourage students to eat lunch and bond. Hence, this memorable season has shown the perseverance of Peninsulas athletes and how arduous they have worked this entire season. Special congratulations for all the seniors who have put in considerable time and effort practicing and at games. - Chiara Grimes

tired, while tennis has taught me how no matter how much you are losing, you cannot give up and have to keep fighting” said Lee. Lee plans to continue playing varsity tennis and competing in varsity dance during her senior year. She hopes to lead the tennis team as one of the captains next year while continuing her leadership in varsity dance. As the tennis season concludes,

Lee reflects on a positive attitude and is grateful to have been one of the starters this year because “it has helped [her] grow tremendously”. She is also extremely proud of all the girls on the team for being Bay League champions for the 8th consecutive year, and will compete in varsity dance in the winter.

3-Time CIF Champions Panthers End Campaign

Tennis

• The Peninsula High girls’ tennis team finish an historic run of CIF team championships.

By Katie Hageman The Peninsula High School girls tennis team has won the CIF championship for the past three years. The girls entered CIF playoffs this season with hope for another title. The Panthers won the first round match and moved on to the second round. However, in this quarterfinal match on Nov. 7 against University High School, Peninsula lost. Even though the match ended the tennis season, the girls overall record was 16-4 and the team won Bay League for the seventh year in a row. When asked about the quarterfinal match, Peninsula’s Tia Elpusan said, “Since I was a part of the team

The team improved tremendously throughout the season and was pleased with what they accomplished. “Tennis season overall was very successful,” Katelyn Parker said. “We had a strong winning record and did a lot better than expected after losing so many strong players last year.” Despite the fact that the team is no longer playing in CIF, some players have the opportunity to keep playing. Parker and Elpusan won Bay League individuals and will be advancing to compete in CIF individual matches on Nov. 21.

The historic season for the Palos Verdes boys water polo team ended last Saturday, with a loss to Santa Margarita in the second round of CIF playoffs. Although unhappy with the exit, the team had its share of exciting games, milestones, and performances. In Saturday’s loss, senior Quinn Stoneman tied PV’s all-time scoring record of 133, shared with former PV and current UCLA player James Robinson. When asked about this achievement and his success this year, Stoneman heaped praise onto his teammates, saying “This season was really about us as a team, not just a group of individuals. We had 15 guys cheering each other on and that’s what made us so successful.” It is also a testament to the coaching of Pat O’Brien, who recently recovered from Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. He inspired the players with his fight, and lead them to their first Bay League title since 2011. The Sea Kings saw all the hard work and determination their coach had put in and modeled their game after that in the pool. Prior to last Saturday’s game, The Sea Kings defeated Villa Park, 15-12, in the first round of playoffs. Led by David Feingold’s eight goals, Stoneman’s five, and eight saves from goalie Liam Foley, the Kings held off a determined Villa Park side.

U7 Goal Busters Are Never Shorthanded . . . The girls’ U7 Goal

Busters (first grade) started the season with nine players, but had two players pulled out due to scheduling conflicts. The team recruited two more players, but then lost three players due to pierced ears, and their parents would not allow the girls to remove the earrings for the games. This left the team with only six girls for the second game of the season with no substitutions. In some games the team had one player out and only had five girls on the field. The Goal Buster girls never gave up, and their determination, passion and competitive edge had the team leading most of their games except one. The players from Montemalga, Soleado and Mira Catalina schools had a great year. — email reports

Fall Ball Makes Way For Winter Sports

Softball

The final game for Pony League Fall Ball will be played today with the Dodgers playing the Padres at George Allen Field. Registration for Pony League, plus all four Peninsula Little Leagues, as well as the PVP girls’ fast-past softball league is currently taking place for the spring seasons. "Tryouts" for baseball and softball will take place the first weeks of January with Opening Day at the end of February. During the spring months the old Big Daddy Nikon camera guy likes to take one or two snapshot photographs at baseball games for Panorama while getting a nice, healthy salad at one of the Peninsula’s award-winning snackshacks.

PV Nightmare Get Ready For Tournament Action . . . The 18U PV Nightmare, featuring high school players from Peninsula, Palos Verdes, Chadwick and Rolling Hills Prep, will represent the Peninsula during December tournament season before putting on their school colors.

. . . Continued from Page 7 In the loss, the Kings were once again led by Feingold and Stoneman, but ultimately lost, 15-9, to end their season. Much was accomplished this season for the Kings, including a share of the Bay League title. Stoneman credits the success to their hard work. “We worked extremely hard and put in countless hours, but all that is

useless without each others’ support. I love all my teammates and it was great to end my last year with this group of men,” Stoneman said. They also took down perennial powerhouse Mira Costa for the first time since 2009. Although the Sea Kings will be losing many seniors, they hope to continue this year’s success in the pool as a new swim season approaches.
