This Friday, September 20, 2013 marked a special day for the Lancer community, 
as La Salle High School was one of the six-hand picked schools across the nation to 
host the Wounded Warrior Project Games sponsored by Under Armour. Being the 
only school to be chosen from the West Coast, it is easy to say just how honored the 
students, faculty, and community were about this game. 

Wounded Warrior Project is a group with a special mission to honor and 
empower all those who have been wounded in battle. Their purpose is to 
raise awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of injured service 
members, to help injured service members aid and assist each other, and to 
provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured 
service members. Fans were asked to each donate a minimum of $1 to help 
support the Wounded Warrior Project. Aside from this the LSHS cheerleaders 
also supported WWP with their 50/50 raffle. The Support Our Troop 
Club generated much excitement by giving away Wounded Warrior Gear to 
the fans. Student and excited fan, Steven Zambrano said, “It was awesome 
to know that La Salle was chosen to represent the Wounded Warrior Project. I 
hope that we all helped raise a lot of money. I know we made our troops proud 

The game commenced with the flag at half-mast and a special prayer keeping 
all those who fought to protect our country in the hearts of all the fans. A bus 
with the faces of many warriors was on display for fans to put a face to the 
cause. Not only was last night’s game the Wounded Warrior Project Game, it 
also was the LSHS game against their rival school of Maranatha. “It was pretty 
exciting watching the game against Maranatha, since they’re our rivals. Out of the three years I’ve 
been going to La Salle this was definitely one of the most packed games I’ve ever been to.” said La Salle 
student, Brett Harper. 

The special evening ended in a shut out game where LSHS proved to be the victors winning 40 to 0. 
Needless to say the stands were packed with excited fans, as eager to participate in the athletic competition, 
as they were to support the worthy cause. David La Salle, an LSHS team captain stated, “I 
felt honored to be sponsored by Under Armour for the Wounded Warrior Project. Our team played 
the best game of the year yet! I just hope we showed those who fought for our country how much we 
appreciate them.”


Pasadena, CA – La Salle High School announced 
that Ernest Baskerville has accepted the position 
of boys varsity basketball coach. Baskerville was 
the Head Coach at Providence High School in 
Burbank, LACES in Los Angeles, and has college 
experience as an assistant while at the College of 
the Canyons. “Coach Baskerville understands the 
private Catholic school community and student-
athlete,” Athletic Director, Anthony Harris said. 

The 2012 CIF Division V A Coach of the Year, 
Baskerville brings 12 years of coaching experience 
to the Lancers. In addition, Coach Baskerville is 
the Director of Marketing for the John Wooden 
Award, and has been very successful running top-
of-the-line tournaments, leagues, and showcases 
for several years.

“Ernest brings experience as a head coach 
combined with a variety of positive characteristics 
to our community and we are extremely excited about the future of La Salle Basketball with Coach 
Baskerville as our leader,” continued Harris.



(NAPSI)—According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in order to preserve 
and improve your health, you need to do two types of physical activity each week—aerobic and 

What You Can Do

Most adults need at least:

• 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity (such as brisk walking) every week

• muscle-strengthening activities on two or more days a week that work all major muscle groups (legs, 
hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders and arms)

• 1 hour and 15 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity (that is, jogging or running) every week.

If 150 minutes a week sounds like a lot of time, you might be glad to learn that you don’t have to do 
it all at once. Not only is it best to spread your activity out during the week, you can break it up into 
smaller chunks of time during the day. Just be sure you’re doing your activity at a moderate or vigorous 
effort for at least 10 minutes at a time. Try going for a 10-minute brisk walk, three times a day, 
five days a week.

What Others Are Doing

Many people are getting an assist in all this from what may seem to some to be a surprising source. To 
help meet the need for better health education, Chrysler Group has gotten together with the National 
Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) 
to increase awareness about health and wellness disparities in minority communities and to promote 
achievable strategies that members of those communities can pursue to improve their health. 

We all know about Chrysler Group’s prowess as an auto manufacturer. What we may not know is 
that the company has been a leader in bringing innovative health programs to its employees and 
their families in order to improve their overall health and to reduce costs. The carmaker has received 
several awards from the National Business Group on Health for the strength and relevance of its 
health and wellness efforts. In fact, the company’s headquarters complex in Auburn Hills, Mich., offers 
employees many wellness amenities such as a fully equipped fitness center, an on-site pharmacy 
and health care offices, all within an environment that offers many recreational opportunities, such as 
walking trails, baseball fields and volleyball courts. Now, the goal is to take the company’s passion for 
health and wellness beyond the corporate walls, into the communities that could benefit most. The 
car company says it focused its message to working journalists because as leaders in their communities, 
they are in a unique position to educate people about health and wellness best practices.

The program is called Get Moving with Chrysler Group and has two parts, a walking challenge and 
an interactive “health and wellness experience” featured at the national conventions this past summer, 
touching more than 3,000 journalists.

During the walking challenges, several local chapters of the NABJ and NAHJ engaged in spirited 
competitions, as a way to earn dollars for their scholarship funds for aspiring journalists.

So can a company that makes cars come up with a way to encourage people to get out and walk? One 
such company has and the results are good for our health.
