La Verne Lutheran staged a furious fourth-quarter rally against visiting Price in the CIF-Southern Section Division 3AA boys basketball semifinals at Citrus College on Friday, but the Trojans attempt to advance to a fourth straight divisional final came up short, 63-58. (To continue click thread).
Friday, as far as area wrestlers were concerned, was a luke-warm day at the CIF-Southern Section Masters Meet.
Eight competitors, including those from the East and West San Gabriel Valley and the Whittier area, advanced to the semifinals of their respective weight classes, and have clinched spots for next weekend’s CIF State Championships in Bakersfield. There are another 17 area wrestlers who are still alive to earn their state-meet bid. All must win fourth-round consolation matches Saturday morning to advance to next week. If they lose, they would drop into the ninth-place semifinals and would need to win two matches to advance.

For a good part of Thursday afternoon’s CIF-Southern Section Division 3 girls soccer semifinal, visiting Serrano was much more physical than second-seed Bishop Amat, so much that the frustration started wear on the Lancers’ faces. The Diamondbacks sported a pair of imposing forwards in Kellsie Gleason and Katie Pound, but the Lancers stood their ground for the most part, getting a solid effort from goalkeeper Alexis Carillo, who came in an out of the penalty area to continually knock away crosses and keep the game scoreless long enough for the Lancers to get going.
