Volunteers Help Improve Fields at Southwest High

A special thanks goes out to the volunteers who are making a difference in our community by improving the look of Southwest High, which provides the home fields for South Bay AYSO/South Bay Matrix. On Saturday, Aug. 4 Coach Hector Ordonez of U14G and two parents from his team (Coach Mario Posada and Raul Moreno) helped bring in clean topsoil to fill the gopher holes and pits at the big field. Coach Ordonez filled his truck bed with quality topsoil, and put his back into getting it onto the high-need parts of the field (see photos).

In addition, coaches Marco Corral and Luiz Loya of U13G and Coach Jesus Jimenez of U10G AYSO Extra also donated their time to improving the fields. Mr. Corral mowed all of Borja Field, Mr. Loya fertilized and evened out the big field, and Mr. Jimenez connected the new battery for the riding mower (purchased by yours truly). We also watered, cleaned up trash and organized the league’s shed. We got a lot of work done, but there is still much to do. Please join us Saturday, Aug. 11 after 8 a.m. for the next round of improvements.

South Bay AYSO also thanks Mr. Albert Sais, a dedicated parks worker, for donating his time and talent to repairing the sprinklers at the fields. He has been a real life saver–because without working sprinklers our fields would have had no chance to be ready in time for Opening Day on Aug. 25. As it is, we are going to have to work extra hard to get them in shape in time.
