The announcement on Wednesday by the union representing Los Angeles teachers that it will strike on Jan. 10 is not good news for high school sports in the Los Angeles Unified School District.

All games involving LAUSD schools will be postponed during the strike, according to the district’s athletics office. Practices are likely not to be permitted once the bell rings ending the school day because of supervision issues, but a final policy has not been announced.

Charter schools that are part of the City Section can continue to play games, City Section Commissioner John Aguirre said. That means El Camino Real, Birmingham, Granada Hills and Palisades, among others, will be available to practice and play games.

Meyer was the highly successful head coach at Corona del Mar and Long Beach Jordan before taking a shot as head coach at Servite.

He hires great assistants, and Lakewood is in a position to perhaps make a bid to return to success in the Moore League.

Unranked Loyola pulled off a stunner Friday night, beating No. 3-ranked St. John Bosco 78-75 in the semifinals of the St. John Bosco tournament.

Loyola (9-4) received a huge game from senior guard Neil Owens, a three-year starter who scored 29 points, including 19 in the fourth quarter.
