Beyond the outfield fence of the El Camino softball field, a group of leashed dogs sat comfortably as Warriors softball traded a win and loss between Cypress College and College of the Canyons.

Saturday, March 23, was National Puppy Day and Warriors softball celebrated the day by hosting their own “Bark in the Park” event where spectators, friends and family were all invited to bring their furry friends. The Southern California Bulldog Rescue was also present at the event with bulldogs who are currently up for adoption.
