Isabella Garcia, Editor-at-Large

Hi! I am a junior at Bonita Vista High and it is my third year on the Crusader staff. This year I am the Editor-at-Large and was previously the Sports Editor and Sports Copy-Editor. The reason I joined newspaper is because I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone and try something new. I also really enjoy reporting on school and sporting events on and off campus. Outside of newspaper, I am a part of Bonita Vista high’s varsity field hockey and varsity girls’ lacrosse teams as a midfielder and defender.
