From page 5 get the 14th shutout of the year and the 21st victory in a row. On Tuesday March 4 the Avalon Lancers hosted the semi- final game at Joe Machado where the whole place was packed it was a very intense and emotional game. The first half was a defen- sive game going into halftime tied nothing a piece. In the sec- ond half the lancers seemed very determined and knew what was at stake and put there heart out on this game and finally came through with a goal by senior Luis Herrera. The Lancers were pumped the crowd was going wild it all seemed to be going our way until the other team received three free kicks from right outside the box for no apparent reason and finally Vistamar tied up the game 1 - 1. This game was headed to over- time where the first team that score wins in the third minute of overtime unfortunately the Vikings scored and defeated the Avalon Lancers. The score did not define who #12 Cesar Ventura and #3 Luis Amezcua battle for the ball in the Lancer's final game against Vistamar High School in which they lost by a score of 2 o 1. Photo by Mel Jordan these players are there is defi- nitely a passion and commitment in these players eyes and how hard working of a team they are. Even tough the Lancets came up one game short of reaching the cham- pionship, the team has a lot to be proud. Having a 21-game winning streak, getting league champs two years in a row, there's one thing about these players: They left it all out on the field and they have great pride. You make Avalon High School proud.

Valentine's Day fell on a Friday and marked the beginning of the 3-day President's Day weekend. Temperatures were forecast to be high and seas calm so we prepared for abusy weekend. Warm air and cool ocean temps produced heavy fog on Friday creating challenging conditions for the 64 boats arriv- ing. They were rewarded though at 2:30 in the afternoon when the fog lifted leaving us with a beauti- ful sunny day. We had some high clouds with sun and warm temps on Saturday the 15th and welcomed another 72 boats. Weather, underwater visibil- ity and attendance were good this year for the 33rd Annual Avalon Harbor Underwater Cleanup held on Saturday, Feb. 22 with 480 divers participating. All kinds of debris was collected - toilets, valuable old coins, bottles of rum, fishing poles - 3270 pounds total. The predicted storms finally brought rain that began to fall on the evening of the 26th. By the 28th the wind and seas in the channel were unfavorable and all cross channel carrier runs were cancelledl During one squall wind speeds were measured at 43mph in the harbor. An Avalon Harbor resident took some awesome pictures of a humpback whale breaching 3/a mile off Abalone Point on the 27th.
