There was a time when people couldn’t figure out how good Calabasas or Sierra Canyon were in football because their schedules weren’t exactly challenging.

This season, both schools are battle tested and raising their games, setting the stage for a great matchup Friday at Granada Hills High. Calabasas is 5-1 with wins over Westlake, Lawndale, La Habra, Valencia and Rancho Cucamonga.

Sierra Canyon is 5-2 with wins over Redondo, Grace Brethren, Valencia, Bakersfield and Crespi.

The City Section Board of Managers gave approval Tuesday for players and coaches to participate in a proposed national high school all-star baseball game next summer.

The Gatorade Major City All-Star Game is to be held in late June or early July in Chicago. Twenty players, four coaches and two administrators from the City Section would be chosen to represent Los Angeles in a four-city competition. The players and coaches would be selected by the baseball advisory committee.

The team would be composed of incoming seniors from the class of 2020. All expenses would be picked up by the game’s sponsors.

The City Section Board of Managers passed a new rule on Tuesday that will allow schools in its section to permit students who are ineligible to practice with their teams after school.

That is the rule for most sections of the California Interscholastic Federation. But schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District will need approval from the school board before they will be allowed to permit ineligible students to practice. It’s a district rule that must be changed.

Charter schools in the City Section can begin to allow ineligible athletes to start practicing immediately.
