: : : : GHC continues to be the cream of the crop.
: : : GH starting PG has been out for several weeks. Big difference maker. Heard they played some reallly good competition and competed without her. Rooting for these girls and the rest of city!
: : I would say as of now, this is pretty close. I still think Narbonne is a dangerous team due to their style of play.
: : Big game in Legacy tourney today - Narbonne vs. Hamilton. Winner may get a top 4 seed come playoffs.
: : However - Jan 9 looms large for City Section teams and sports in general.
: : How long will the UTLA strike last?
: : Because as far as I know, the only independent charter schools (except for small magnet type schools) are Palisades, Granada Hills and El Camino Real.
: : They may be the only teams still practicing and playing for several days or even weeks.
: : They may end up having to do home and home combos with each other (obviously ECR and GH already do that).
: Birmingham is also an independent charter.
The bigger question is how do we bring the talent back to the city section? None of the good players are staying at their local schools which is such a shame. The city section is so down this year and the trend is only going to continue until we figure out a way to clean up these schools and put academics first. Only 4-5% of these girls will go on to play in college at the D1,2 and 3 level. Making these schools accountable for academics will help bring back all of the girls we are losing to private schools. At the end of the day as parents, we want our kids to compete against the best and more importantly get our kids educated and ready for the world.... and donít get me started on these crooked charter schools,. funding and spending should be up to LAUSD, individuals canít be trusted with such a large sum of money every year...Too many of these men and women running these charter schools are robbing us blind and taking the money for their personal use at the expense of our kids.
