The coronavirus has turned the world upside down, and the sports world in America was thrown a sharp breaking curve ball out of nowhere that has put fans at the edge of their seats, even if those seats are at home and not inside a stadium.
At Culver City High School, spring sports was blossoming into a beautiful flower that turned into a coronavirus cactus.
The baseball team was 9-4 overall and 2-1 in Ocean League play. Girls’ softball was 4-2 and 1-0 in league play. Girls’ lacrosse was 7-1 and 1-0 in league play. Boys’ lacrosse was 3-2. Boys tennis was 7-2 overall and 1-0 in league play. Boys’ volleyball was 5-7 overall.
The track and field teams competed in the Culver City Invitational on March 7. The meet was very successful according to head coach Jahmal Wright.
“It was a pretty day and we had 21 schools competing on the Culver City track,” Wright said. “I was very pleased with the turnout and how all four (boys and girls) of our teams competed.” The freshmen, sophomore and varsity boys and girls teams were undefeated.
Sports are an important part of some of our lives but when you look at the whole picture of life, it’s a small part.
