Strange, but true: Sylmar High's title aspirations in volleyball are buoyed by a pool lifeguard whose out-of-the-ordinary trait as a youth--left-handedness--has turned her into one of the top players in the City Section. Unlike most of her peers, Stephanie Cisneros was not right-handed, a fact pointed out to her time and again. You could say she was, um, left behind. "I was bummed when I was young because people looked at me as weird," Cisneros said. Turns out that left was right.

The Sylmar girls' team anticipates getting a boost from Stephanie Cisneros, a 5-9 junior forward who was expected to join the Spartans this week. Cisneros, a volleyball standout, was a top player on the junior varsity basketball team as a freshman. Choosing to concentrate on club volleyball, Cisneros did not play basketball last year and wasn't expected to play this season. But she contacted Coach Cody Carter last week about joining the team.

January 29, 2005
I read with interest your Jan. 24 story on the effects of gentrification in the Echo Park area. Stephanie Cisneros sees it as a threat to the current lifestyle. My husband's family lived in the Echo Park area until the 1960s. We witnessed change opposite to what is being seen now. What was once a modest middle-class neighborhood slowly disintegrated into a graffiti-filled area. The houses were no longer kept up and, in many cases, old trucks and automobiles were parked on the lawns.
