The Southern Section Division 6 championship game between Santa Clarita Trinity Classical Academy and Palm Springs Desert Chapel continues to generate national attention because of the sportsmanship involved.
The state champion in the 100 meters, Khalfani Muhammad, has graduated from Sherman Oaks Notre Dame and moved on to California, but there's plenty of speed left in the Mission League this spring.
It starts with T.J. Brock, who had the fastest 100 meters time by a freshman last season. He transferred from Crespi to Chaminade and will become eligible next month just in time to compete in the Arcadia Invitational.
Alemany's Dominic Davis ran 10.83 last week .
Loyola has the fastest 400-meter relay time in the state and is led by Mekai Sheffie and Nico Evans. Notre Dame has the second fastest 400 time and still hasn't used sophomore Leo Lambert III, who's getting into shape after being sidelined from jaw surgery.
Notre Dame has a rising sophomore in Trevor Reid, who ran a 10.99 100 and has run 22.10 in the 200.
The Redondo Invitational is on Saturday. Loyola and Notre Dame are scheduled to compete, joined by Long Beach Poly and Dorsey.
One of the top volleyball tournaments in the country is set for Friday and Saturday at Poway High School, where the top three teams in Southern Section Division 1 _ Huntington Beach, Loyola and Mira Costa _ will be among the teams competing.
Huntington Beach, the defending Division 1 champion, is led by junior TJ DeFalco, a Long Beach State commit, and senior Brenden Sander, headed to Brigham Young.
Loyola is led by UC Santa Barbara-bound Hayden Boehle and Stanford-bound Cole Paullin.
Mira Costa has USC-bound Connor Inlow.
Also competing will be teams from Arizona, New York and Hawaii.
Standout point guard Jordan McLaughlin of Etiwanda will be lost for the rest of the season because of a torn labrum that will require surgery.
McLaughlin was injured in an Open Division playoff game against Chino Hills on Feb. 28.
McLaughlin helped Etiwanda win the Division 1AA championship last season and has signed with USC. Etiwanda is scheduled to open the Southern California Regional Open Division playoffs on Friday against host Woodland Hills El Camino Real.
"He is such a quality young man," Coach Dave Kleckner said.
