Zahid Valencia of St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower.

Zahid Valencia of St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower was named the CIF Player of the Year in the lower weight classes at the recent California Interscholastic Federation Individual Tournament, as the Braves took second place in the team competition.

Valencia, who competes in the 132-pound weight class, was one of three Braves’ individual champions. The others were Julian Gendreau (112 pounds) and Anthony Valencia (170 pounds). Matt Williams (150 pounds) and Joseph Dominguez (138 pounds) each took third place in their weight classes.

Loneliness and prayer

Anna Maria Scaperlanda Biddick

When I was a single adult, as for most single people, loneliness was a presence in my life.  The loneliness didn’t come on Valentine’s Day, when I showed up alone to a wedding, or when I saw an engagement on Facebook.
