LA CENTER — The long-standing Victory Bell that sits outside La Center High School is available to be rung anytime one of the Wildcat sports teams records a victory.

It also can be seen as a symbolic victory for one of its students, junior Triston Martell.

Friday marks one year since the teenager’s brush with death when he suffered sudden cardiac arrest and collapsed at school the morning of May 26, 2022.
