Keppel falls in CIF State title game

BERKELEY >> When Keppel senior point guard Lauren Saiki went to the bench with foul trouble two minutes into Saturday’s CIF State Division II title game, the Aztecs’ championship hopes took a hit.

They never completely recovered and were dealt a 53-31 loss by San Jose Archbishop Mitty at Haas Pavilion on the campus of UC Berkeley.

It was the first appearance in a state title game for Keppel and 11th for Mitty, which has now won six titles. Mitty had last won in 2012 and had back-to-back championships in 2007 and 2008.

Pasadena Games in steady hands

High school track and field programs tossed around the Pasadena Games like it was a hot potato.

But since Pasadena City College regained control of the meet in 2012, everything seems to be back on an upswing.

“Now we have to turn people away,” Pasadena track and field coach Armand Crespo said. “It’s big. I think we revived it and pumped life into it.”

The 72nd annual meet will be Friday and Saturday. Colleges and open athletes will compete Friday and high schools will compete on Saturday. Friday’s meet will be mostly for community college athletes, with a smattering of NCAA athletes seeking qualifying marks. Fifty high schools are scheduled to compete in Saturday’s high school meet.

Shooting has helped Keppel to state title game


ALHAMBRA >> Defense may win games, but without the ability to score, playing solid defense is moot.
The Keppel High School girls basketball teams have consistently been able to do both well. The Aztecs have an incredibly quick and killer pressure defense and have had a lot of offensive spark at the same time. It is one reason they are consistently considered one of the top programs in Southern California and why they are playing in their first CIF State championship game on Saturday.
