I would like to be able to sort a column by name but I cannot with the current query I am using. Please help

I am pulling information from one tab to another and I believe this is why it will not allow me to sort (because it is not sorted in the original tab). The easy solution would be to sort that tab. However, this is not an option. Is there something I can add to my query code to allow it to sort column A by ascending? My query code is here =Query(‘Tardy Data Sheet’!L17:R, “Select * Where N = ‘8th'”) Any help would be appreciated.
