Esperanza demonstrates the classy side of high school sports

Anaheim Esperanza has done something that all the senior volleyball players at Goleta Dos Pueblos High will be forever thankful for because of the school's class and sportsmanship.

Esperanza was scheduled to host Dos Pueblos in a Southern Section Division 2 volleyball playoff match on Saturday night. But it was also the night of the Dos Pueblos school prom, and there was no way that the 12 Dos Pueblos seniors and their dates were going to make the prom if the volleyball match went off in Anaheim.

Dos Pueblos asked to change the match to Monday night. And Esperanza agreed.

"It was a classy move by Esperanza to help us out, and we really appreciate it," Dos Pueblos Athletic Director Dan Feldhaus said.

If anyone deserves a Character Counts award, it's the Esperanza administration and the volleyball program.
