“We are very happy with our placement,” La Canada coach Tom Hofman said. “I guess one game makes a huge difference.” Provided the Spartans win two games, they would likely get a shot against Artesia of Lakewood, the Div. I-AA champions, on March 17 in the Southern California regional final at Pauley Pavilion. Meanwhile, Campbell Hall received the top seed in Div. IV and faces the winner of Tuesday’s play-in game between City Section small-schools runner-up Los Angeles Center for Enriched Studies and San Joaquin Memorial of Fresno. Should the Vikings roll through their first two opponents, they could face Horizon of San Diego in the regional final on March 17 at Cal State Fullerton for the right to play for the state championship March 24 at Arco Arena in Sacramento. Div. III-A runner-up Renaissance Academy of La Canada Flintridge must like its chances now that the Wildcats are back in Div. V. They must first travel more than four hours to face Immanuel of Reedley on Thursday. With a win, they would face City small-schools champion View Park Prep of Los Angeles. Poly of Sun Valley opens up Tuesday at home against Centennial of Corona, the Southern Section Div. II-A champion. The pairings for the boys’ basketball regional playoffs were announced Sunday and four area programs were awarded berths after successful runs in the Southern Section and City Section playoffs over the past month. After its better-than-expected performance against nationally ranked Campbell Hall of North Hollywood in Saturday’s Div.III-AA final, La Canada was rewarded with the No. 2 seed in Div. III and will open first-round play at home Thursday night against Hanford West. A game against Div. II-A champion Pasadena looms on Thursday for DJ Gay and if they get by the first-round game. the Parrots [email protected] (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
