The Westchester High boys basketball team had everything clicking before the LAUSD teachers’ strike interrupted the season. The Comets, the No. 1 team in the Daily Breeze rankings, were 18-1 overall and 5-0 in the Western League. “I know what we looked like before the layoff,” Westchester coach Ed Azzam said Wednesday as he looked on during the team’s first practice since the end of the nine-day strike. “We were playing really well, lot of energy, defense had five guys playing together, and offense, we knew where each other were … We didn’t look like any of that today.” During the strike, all games and practices were cancelled, although the Comets were allowed to hold player-led practices. The last game the Comets played was on Jan. 11, a 71-14 win over Hamilton. The first one back is a big one, as Western League rival Fairfax visits Westchester on Friday at 6:30 p.m. “It felt great to get back in the gym and get a team practice going,” senior guard Jordan Brinson said. “We had one practice where pretty much everybody showed up. We had multiple days where we came in, got up some shots, we had an open run together.” Due to the strike, the Comets lost four games on their schedule, and three were league games. The originally scheduled games against LACES (Jan. 14) and University (Jan. 16) will not be rescheduled. The Jan. 18 game at Fairfax will be played Jan. 31. That rescheduling of the Fairfax game will give Westchester four games next week – on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. After that gauntlet of a schedule, Westchester will get a week off before the start of the L.A. City Section playoffs. “I see a lot of rust,” Azzam said. “I can’t look at them and say you didn’t work out, so I’m going to punish you. The guys who worked out and are in pretty good shape. There’s still some rust, because it is us and we’re playing together, but other guys looked like they haven’t touched a ball since the day the strike started. We have to figure it out. “As much as I would like to win the game on Friday, it’s not the No. 1 priority. The No. 1 priority is to be ready for the playoffs. Unfortunately, all we’ve got next week are games, so we’re going to have to use those as practice and then we’ll have a week off before the first (playoff) game.” The last game for Fairfax was Jan. 12. The Lions lost three games on the schedule due to the strike. “Hopefully we’ll get better (today) and maybe the lights will come on Friday,” Azzam said. Another big game on the schedule Friday is in the Marine League as Gardena visits Narbonne. The Panthers won the teams’ first meeting 56-51 on Jan. 11. The L.A. City Section office required all teams to participate in one practice before being allowed to resume games. Westchester boys soccer coach Godfrey Ebohon said his group was excited to be back on the field for practice. “Right now, we’re likely going to play two games a week,” he said. “The kids were excited, they wanted to be back.”

Funderingar om världens gång

har, bortsett från idag, visat sin bästa sida. Solsken och utomordentligt välskötta backar, ont om natursnö men desto bättre kanondito. Dagens program började med carving-kurs, det tar på knäna men går undan om man vågar åka! Lätt snöfall/dis gjorde sikten varierande, det tar ytterligare på fysiken när man måste vara beredd på överraskningar och snöhögar […]
