CARSON is BACK TO BACK CITY CHAMPIONS
There are still several teams that remain unbeaten in league play heading into spring break. There are also several leagues that will be very interesting to watch in the next few weeks.
Unbeaten Teams in League
Dorsey - Coliseum
North Hollywood - East Valley
Garfield - Eastern
Hamilton - Western
In the Marine League Banning, Narbonne and Carson are sure to give City Fans great games after the Easter break. Sylmar has become a dominant team in the Valley Mission League already beating San Fernando and City opponents Narbonne and Taft. The West Valley League looks like the toughest league once again with El Camino Real, Chatsworth and Cleveland looking strong so far in non-league play.
In City Softball there a bunch of unbeaten teams in league.
King Drew - Coliseum
POLA - Crosstown
Poly - East Valley
Bell - Eastern
Carson and Banning - Marine
Marshall - Northern
Kennedy - Valley Mission
El Camino Real - West Valley (undefeated in tournament play as well)
Venice - Western
El Camino Real looks like the early favorite in Division 1. The addition of Port of Los Angeles to Division 1 should be interesting come playoff time as they are likely to battle either Banning, Carson or El Camino in the semifinals.
Westchester fell behind in the first half of Saturday's Southern Section Regional Finals against Mater Dei, and the entire arena believed the game to be over. The Comets were down as much as 17 points in a sloppy first half. The second half started and you could just feel the energy from the start. Everyone who has followed and knows Westchester Basketball never gave up on Coach Ed Azzam's team. They came back and showed the heart that it takes to play in the City Section year in and year out. As great as the Westchester program has been over the years, they were still considered underdogs. We don't see that changing in the coming years as the private schools have monopolized all the great talent in and out of the city. A big congratulations to Coach Ed Azzam and his staff and to the Westchester basketball team that represented the LA City Section and made all of us proud.
