TEMPLE CITY — Some of the area's best high school softball players had the rare opportunity to take the field with more concern about having fun than winning in the annual San Gabriel Valley All-Star Game, hosted at Live Oak Park in Temple City on Thursday night.
Flintridge Prep, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy and La Cañada High each sent a handful of players to compete in the game, which pits San Gabriel Valley's best public and private high school seniors against each other in a friendly competition. The Public team had the edge, though, as La Cañada's Lauren O'Leary dealt yet another shutout for a 5-0 Public victory.
"This is the seniors' last hoorah," said Flintridge Prep Coach Julie Jaime, who coached the Private team. "It's a nice, fun environment and it's one last game for them."
