LSI Basketball Tournament

Language Systems International (LSI) had its first annual basketball tournament on Friday, March 4th at Peck Park in San Pedro, California. Teams from 5 campuses participated and a lot of fans from each school came along to cheer their teams on. Each school wore T-shirts from their school and most of the fans had signs and pom poms! Torrance and Alhambra even had cheerleading squads and LA had a huge flag with its school color and mascot. Before each game, the teams exchanged gifts that were chosen from each school's location. So, OC gave little frisbees with Mickey Mouse's picture on it since OC is close to Disneyland and Torrance gave little bottles of sand since it is close to the beach. LA gave small little "Oscar" trophies (like the ones given in the Academy Awards) and Alhambra gave out bags of yummy taffy! All the teams played really well and each game was super close. Finally it came down to the last two teams, OC and Alhambra, playing for the championship. Even though it was close, OC won and the fans went crazy when the OC team held up the trophy. The fans kept yelling "Whoosh!" and "Oh, yeah!" All the students and team members were good sports and congratulated each other on a fun and exciting game. Afterwards, LSI had a pizza party with chicken wings and the students stayed for a while meeting people from other schools and talking about the games. Everyone had a great time and we'll be sure to have another tournament next year! You can check the pictures of this event at For more information about school events, check out
