ARCADIA — In order to advance to the upcoming Division III Tournament, the Burbank 9-10 Baseball All-Stars needed to defeat a team that beat them just three days prior. The District 16 champions lost their second-round game of the Section 2 Tournament to District 40 champion Sherman Oaks on Sunday, but found their way into the finals after getting by Quartz Hill in the loser's bracket. Sherman Oaks remained undefeated by clinching its spot in the finals one day earlier with the win over Burbank, setting up Tuesday's rematch in the championship game.

SHERMAN OAKS - With the playoffs set to begin next week, the members of the St. Francis High basketball team are still scrambling to get back on track. St. Francis figured it could begin its path to right the ship when it faced host Sherman Oaks Notre Dame on Monday in a Mission League game. Notre Dame had yet to win a league game. Notre Dame must have forgotten it hadn't won in a long time, and promptly caught St. Francis off guard to post a 48-44 victory. Slumping St. Francis, ranked third in the latest CIF Southern Section Division III-A poll, dipped to 15-10, 4-7 in league.
