Facts on Climate Change
Provided by 8th Grade students, Sophia
Willick and Bianca Hammer, their community
project for their middle school is about climate
change. They provided this information for us:
Climate Change: Climate change is affecting
all of us from the rising waters in Venice,
to the melting ice caps. We have become so
familiar with this issue, but not many people
seem to be taking action. We are providing
some ways that you can help climate change.
Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle (in that order):
Recycling is a great thing but you have
to reduce and reuse first. Recycling plants take
up lots of energy which outputs carbon into
Pull the Plugs: Using less energy at home
can help us all it reduces carbon output and
saves your energy bill.
Eat less meat: Especially eat less beef.
Cows may taste good but their effect on our
climate is not good.
Your Car :This is the most important personal
climate decision. Carpool, and think to
yourself ‘Can I bike or walk’ before you start to
drive. Going electric is also a good option too.

Eagles Rained Out, Blown Out
and Little League Shutdown
By Gregg McMullin
With all the recent wet weather, the high
school softball and baseball teams were rained
out. The boy’s volleyball team continued to play
a tough schedule and the El Segundo Little
League was not only rained out but decided
to be on hiatus during these uncertain times.
Eagles No Match for Costa
The El Segundo boy’s volleyball team scheduled
a gauntlet of matches against arguably some
of the top teams in the South Bay this season.
Their latest test matched them with nationally
ranked Mira Costa. The Eagles put up a great
fight but were defeated in four games 14-25,
25-22, 13-25 and 19-25.
After falling in the first game, the Eagles
countered with their best effort of the season
in the second game. The second game was
filled with blocks, digs and extended rallies
and stunned the Mustangs with a 25-22 game
two victory. Colin Dionne scored back to
back points to even the game at 7-7. It was
Robby Pedersen who gained the respect of the
Mustangs with his blocks and hits. He scored
three consecutive points as El Segundo took a
13-9 lead. His block made it 15-11 and you
could sense the Eagles were in control. With
the help of Thomas Clark, Logan Sharp and
Jake Lubs, the Eagles held off the Mustangs’
push for the victory. Pedersen’s block gave the
Eagles the well deserved 25-22 win.
Game three was like poking the bear. In this
case, Mira Costa, and the Mustangs made it
quick. The Eagles kept the game close with
Pedersen’s point at the net to make it 8-8. From
there, it was all Mira Costa, which rattled off
seven consecutive points. Pedersen sent the
ball straight down at the net to make it 21-13,
but that’s as close as the Eagles would come.
In the fourth game, Mira Costa jumped out
to a 12-4 lead and it looked like a route in the
making. Then the Eagles found their rhythm that
sidetracked the Mustangs and all of a sudden, it
was a game. When the Eagles scored on an unforced
error to make it a 17-15 deficit, Mira Costa
came out of a timeout and built a 22-15 lead. The
Eagles wouldn’t go quietly with back to back
points by Thomas Clark and a couple of unforced
errors by the Mustangs to make 24-19. Mira
Costa then finished off the game and the match.
The Eagles rebounded from that loss to
defeat Culver City 25-20, 25-12 and 25-23 to
improve their Ocean League record to 2-0. The
Eagles host Hawthorne today at 3 p.m. as the
Ocean League schedule continues.
Former Eagles Finish
Their Colligate Lacrosse
Seasons on High Note
The Williams College and Bard College men’s
lacrosse team’s seasons came to an end when
both schools decided to cancel the rest of their
seasons related to the Coronavirus pandemic.
William College’s Cory Lund (ESHS 2017
graduate) led the Ephs in scoring and an undefeated
record this season. In his team’s last game,
before the season was canceled, the junior attacker
scored five goals to lead his team to a 13-11
win against Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
(RPI). Bard’s Lukas Roscoe (ESHS 2019
graduate) scored five goals and two assists in
the Raptor’s 20-5 win over State University
