This week’s East Valley League games between Poly High and Grant have been rescheduled because of a conflict with two memorial services scheduled for longtime Grant teacher Hal Arthur, 60, who was shot and killed outside his Sherman Oaks home Friday.


The games will be played on Wednesday at Poly and Friday at Grant. Both games start at 3 p.m.

Seven Valley-area players are among 48 players scheduled to take part in a high school basketball doubleheader at Valley College on April 9 beginning at 1 p.m.
