Middle school faculty-student softball game ends in tie

By Daniel Kim and Ally White

The annual middle school faculty-student softball game between the students and the faculty was held on Friday, May 20 at the Sprague Athletic Field at the middle school.

The student team consisted of the members of the middle school softball teams while the faculty team played about 20 members of the Harvard-Westlake faculty and staff.

Physical education teacher Lew Roberts presided as the umpire for the game when it started at 3:15 p.m.

By the start of the ninth inning, the game seemed to be over as the faculty and staff were winning 15-10. However, the students pulled together and managed to score five runs in the last inning to equalize the score. The game ended in a draw 15-15.

The softball game is a Westlake School tradition that is more than 30 years old.

The faculty had won for five years straight prior to this game.
