For some three decades Holy Family Grade School has presented its Fiesta Tropicale. In keeping with tradition, more than 1,000 families visited the fiesta between 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday, in spite of the drizzle. An early morning breakfast started the festivities, but it was the Scooby-Doo Bouncer and food booths in the school yard that attracted the crowds. Event co-chairwoman Brenda De Borja and her fundraising chairwoman Mary Avila stayed busy making sure that the tamales, tacos, beans, rice, churros and skewered meat were regularly replenished.

SAN GABRIEL — With two starters out for different reasons, the Holy Family softball team was forced to go to Plan B. That plan of attack didn't turn out well for the Gaels, who made seven errors en route to a 4-1 road loss against San Gabriel Mission on Tuesday afternoon in a Horizon League contest. Holy Family (3-4, 2-1 in league) competed without starting catcher Melanie Leyva because of a hand injury and left fielder Kiara Ardines (academics), forcing Holy Family Coach Greg Ziomek to insert players into new positions for the first time this season.

PALOS VERDES PENINSULA - Trailing by 33 points at halftime, coach Ernest Siy knew his Holy Family girls' basketball team was not playing to extend its season. Perhaps that's why he displayed a positive tone after losing, 63-23, to Chadwick in the opening round of the CIF Southern Section Division 5-AA playoffs and ending the season with a 7-18 record. “I wrote one word on the grease board, 'Pride,'” Siy said of the halftime message he gave his players. “I said listen, you guys are cementing your reputation right now. How do you want to be remembered?

BURBANK - Both the Providence High and Holy Family girls' volleyball coaches praised the resiliency of their teams after the two squads took Thursday night's match to five games. Holy Family walked away feeling better about the contest after pulling out the victory, 26-24, 25-20, 16-25, 16-25, 15-10. Providence still had something to be proud of, though, fighting with its back against the wall, after dropping the first two games, to force a fifth game. Pioneers Coach Josh Eggleston said his team lost because it didn't play up to its ability from the beginning.

BURBANK - After splitting the first two games with Providence High, the Holy Family girls' volleyball team appeared to have won the third set, 25-21, after what looked to be an Iris Guzman kill. But a late net interference call gave the point to Providence, making the score 24-22, with the home team serving. Providence went on to win that third game, 27-25, and ultimately the match by running away with the fourth and walking away with a 22-25, 25-22, 27-25, 25-8 nonleague victory at Providence.
