 Lacrosse fans and supporters are growing in Southern California, but the sport remains short of the number of teams needed to gain an official championship in the Southern Section. To have an official championship in the Southern Section, 20% of the member schools must be playing the sport. That means the magic number to be reached is 113, according to the Southern Section office. About 63 schools are playing boys' lacrosse and about 54 schools are playing girls' lacrosse. Lacrosse has been a sport in the Southern Section since 2005.

Taking to heart the adage, "If at first you don't succeed, try and try again," Anaheim Canyon High kept launching three-point shots at Honda Center on Saturday in the Southern Section 2AA boys' basketball championship game against Westlake Village Westlake. The Comanches made only two of 14 three-point shots in the first half, but Coach Nate Harrison didn't tell his players to stop firing away. They made eight of 13 in the second half and defeated Westlake, 71-54. Point guard Anthony Ballestero scored 20 points and junior Nick Anderson had 20 points and 16 rebounds.

Ventura St. Bonaventure, Westlake Village Oaks Christian, La Verne Damien and Glendora St. Lucy's have  won their arbitration cases against the CIF Southern Section and will remain in their current sports areas for the upcoming re-leaguing cycle from 2014-18. It will force the Northern Area, Mt. SAC and parochial areas to meet again and start over their re-leaguing process. Those areas had already created new leagues without the four schools.

In a game full of stars, Jordin Canada of Los Angeles Windward shined the brightest Friday night at Azusa Pacific University. The UCLA-bound senior point guard ran the Wildcats' offense to perfection, finding open teammates to the tune of nine assists, and scored 14 points of her own in a shockingly one-sided 61-46 upset of top-seeded Santa Ana Mater Dei in the CIF Southern Section Open Division championship game. Canada had plenty of help from her friends, as USC-bound center Kristen Simon scored 15 points, Macchi Smith had 14 and freshman guard Chelsey Gipson contributed 15 for the second-seeded Wildcats (24-2)
