Yes, this is a sort of Tribune and Inland Valley Bulletin school, but La Verne Lutheran proved me wrong.
The Trojans defeated Pacific Hills 57-56 to win the CIF-SS Division V-AA title.
It’s kind of fitting that Jordan Sally hit the game-winning layup late in the game.
Sally was a novalty in prep sports as he was an in-season transfer from Bishop Amat. What makes it even more interesting is he went from a Catholic school to a Lutheran school. But since the CIF approved it, who am I to say anything but congratulations to them?
I’m posting this here because there’s a possibility that La Verne Lutheran could face none other than Renaissance Academy in the state playoffs next week. That would be an interesting matchup to say the least.
Question: Who would win?
