High School

"What people remember most about her high school days was the 1986 game pitting Fernandez, a freshman, against Gahr High's De De Weiman.  The two dueled for 21 scoreless innings until the game was suspended for darkness.  The next day, they returned to finish up, pitching another eight innings until Fernandez scored the winning and only run.  Weiman has kept a scrapbook of that marathon game and the most unforgettable photo from it captures a tearful Weiman and Kelly Inouye (Fernandez's catcher at UCLA) hugging at home plate, while Fernandez and her teammates are gleefully celebrating a few feet away.  But Weiman also remembers Fernandez's grace in victory, "Lisa came and hugged me and said, 'There's no winner or loser here.'"
