Islander Softball Completes Undefeated Regular Season At 21-0-1, Earns Division III No. 1 Seed

There was a certain degree of inevitability to the last week of the regular season for the Islander Softball Team. They were scheduled to play three games, two against teams from the City League and the other one against Francis Parker, the team responsible for a 7-7 tie March 8, when the game was called due to darkness. That result became the only slight blemish on an otherwise undefeated season. Unfortunately the re-match between the Islanders and the Lancers didn’t occur, as Parker only had seven players healthy due to injury and they had to forfeit last Tuesday’s game. Ironically, the final score in a softball forfeit is 7-0.

The other two games were a 13-0 victory over a very young La Jolla Viking team and a 11-2 win road win at Morse. The only real importance of the final week of the season was the Islanders needed one league victory to win the City League title outright. Mission accomplished, as Coronado finished two games ahead of second place San Diego. The two victories did assist in solidifying the team’s No. 1 seed atop Division III for the coming CIF Playoffs, but more on that later.

Council Finalizes Community Grant Policy; Hears Community Input On Logos College

During the Coronado City Council meeting of Tuesday, May 7, 2019, the council spent one hour and 17 minutes of their three hour and 33 minute meeting discussing Community Grant policies and procedures. Combined with the one hour and 31 minutes of discussion from their April 16, 2019, meeting spent on the same issue, the council has covered the waterfront on the concept and then covered it again.

What is now in force is a grant policy that is five and one-half pages long, with an additional five page application, which includes examples and a scoring mechanism to grade the submittals. What was once a policy friendly to local non-profits and in need of some level of tightening, has morphed into

The City’s Cultural Arts Commission announces the return of its “Sit a Spell and Play a Tune,” three public pianos at Rotary Plaza, Adella Plaza, and the Coronado Ferry Landing. The Commission is recruiting musicians of all ages and skill levels to participate in the opening concerts in May.

“Sit a Spell and Play a Tune” is an interactive, artistic and musical public art program that places three brightly wrapped pianos at outdoor locations around Coronado.

Spin, Stretch And Summer High School Training Camps Added At Coronado Fitness Club

It’s a fun and busy time at Coronado Fitness Club (CFC). A growing membership base and increased summer activity due to tourists and high schoolers have prompted CFC to amp up its class schedule. CFC’s class portfolio includes spin, boot camps, zumba, yoga, TRX and MyZone heart rate zone training.

CFC provides local and visiting high school students options that don’t require a gym membership. Girls Boot Camp and Strength and Speed for Athletes continue through the summer months with flexible rate options to adapt to students’ schedules. “Some kids come in for a couple of weeks, travel with family, then come back to finish the summer with us.,” says CFC owner, Chris Foote. “We want kids to have quality, flexible choices that motivate and safely train their growing bodies.”

High school athletes can track their progress throughout the summer starting with a state-of-the-art InBody scan at Kevin Bruno’s Strength and Speed for High School Athletes. As opposed to focusing on the number on a scale, the InBody scan teaches people what their weight really represents, providing a detailed breakdown of muscle, fat and water in the torso and each arm and leg. For any interested student, Bruno will start the summer showing kids their true body composition. From there, they will work together to set goals, ending the summer session with another scan.

Coronado Celebrates Preservation Month

Preservation Month is upon us, and it is a month that the Coronado Historical Association proudly celebrates. The scope of this celebration spans far beyond Coronado, though. From local preservation groups, to state historical societies, to businesses and civic organizations across the country, Preservation Month represents an important tradition every year in May.

Throughout the month, many events are planned “that promote historic places and heritage tourism, and that demonstrate the social and economic benefits of historic preservation,” according to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Thousands of people partake in Preservation Month events annually.

Established by the National Trust in 1973, Preservation Month originated as National Preservation Week. But in 2005, the National Trust extended the celebration to the entire month of May, intending to provide a greater opportunity to celebrate the diverse heritage of cities and states throughout the U.S.
