With disc golf season approaching, the Westlake Action Team Captains spent a recent day sprucing up the local Rabbit Flats course by raking up brush and litter, spreading mulch and planting trees.

Former Major Leaguer Robert Fick stopped by to encourage the more than 20 student volunteers who were participating in their second community event of the 2015-2016 school year. They worked alongside the Conejo Recreation and Park District.

“Keep it up! This is what life is about, hard work and motivation for something you love,” Fick told the Captains.
