Mendez has been added to the City Section Division III football playoffs after No. 14-seeded Bernstein dropped out because of lack of players, City Section Commissioner John Aguirre said Wednesday. Mendez will play at No. 3 Fremont on Friday night.

Mendez  was left out of the Division III playoffs because of an error on Saturday during the seeding meeting, when it should have been seeded No. 16, Aguirre confirmed on Monday. Jordan High in South L.A. received the No. 16 seed when it should have been No. 17.

In an email sent on Monday to Mendez coach Carlos Fernandez, Aguirre wrote: “After speaking with Max Preps representatives, they have confirmed that there were a couple of late entries of scores by Southern Section schools that both Jordan and Mendez played during the season.  The changes dropped Mendez’s rating from a -43.8 to a -43.1, while Jordan remained at a rating of -43.3.

Devin Askew of Santa Ana Mater Dei and TJ Wainwright of Santa Monica are going to leave basketball fans bewildered whenever they play against each other.

They are sophomore guards with the same frazzy hair who look like they could be brothers.

Askew is 6-foot-2, Wainwright 6-0.

Wilson High officials have informed the City Section that their football team intends to play Eagle Rock on Friday at Wilson after a player boycott threat on Thursday raised questions about whether the game would take place.

An Instagram post by a Wilson player on Thursday got the attention of City Section and Los Angeles Unified School District officials: “Tomorrow the Wilson varsity team will not be playing in our game against Eagle Rock. We are boycotting the game along with our coaches.”

The players were upset that two volunteer assistant coaches have been prevented from coaching by the LAUSD after it was learned they had yet to complete a state-required background check, City Section Commissioner John Aguirre said.
