The infrastructure at KSN is one of extremes. There’s evidence of crumbling decay mixed with splashes of modernisation showing the hospitals slow progress towards the 21stcentury. This is indicative of any building this age in rural India as the ravages of baking hot summers followed by the torrential rain of the monsoon can accelerate the […]

Emma Clarendon chatted to the pair about bringing their new  show Ginger Snapped to London.  Hi thanks for talking to me. What can audiences expect from ‘The Ginger Snapped’? JM – we call it “therapy you can dance to.” It’s a show examining the darker (but still very hilarious) side of drag fame. MS  – She threatens my life several times onstage; I think everyone can get behind […]

The Northview, Diamond Ranch and Santa Fe High School girls basketball teams are playing for CIF Southern Section Divisional titles on Saturday and will be in the state playoffs next week. All three have performed extremely well in the playoffs and have a good chance of raising the championship plaque and posing for pictures afterward. Here is a quick look at all three title games. DIVISION 4A: No. 4 Santa Fe (21-8) vs. No. 2 Hillcrest (24-7), Godinez HS, 6 p.m. The Chiefs are playing for their first title in program history and battle-tested junior JoAnne Stroud, who broke her nose in last week’s semifinal and overcame a broken finger during the season, played through it all, scoring 18 points with 10 rebounds in their 64-48 semifinal victory over Crean Lutheran. “I’m so driven and so competitive that I didn’t let (the injuries) hold me back,” Stroud said. “I’m thankful that I have good doctors who got me back and a good coaching staff. I was never going to let that hold me back.” And now the moment has arrived. Stroud is the leader averaging 18 points, but the Chiefs have a lot of weapons and have been winning without a senior on the roster. Two sophomores have been big, Alicia Portillo, averaging nine points, and Jaden Hill-Massarotti, averaging eight points. There is also 6-foot- junior Oluwatomi Oginni, averaging eight points and a team-high six rebounds. Hillcrest beat Anaheim 66-59 to advance, but struggled some in a 51-40 quarterfinal win over Bassett. DIVISION 4AA: No. 2 Northview (27-5) vs. No. 4 Oak Park (23-9) at Azusa Pacific, 6:30 p.m. The entire playoffs have been a thing of firsts for the Vikings girls basketball team, first time in the quarterfinals, first time in the semifinals and now their first time to play for a championship. And they don’t want to waste it. Giselle Garcia #42 of Northview drives to the basket against Maranatha in the second half of a semifinal prep playoff basketball game at Northview High School on Friday, February 15, 2019 in Covina, California. Northview won 54-43. (Photo by Keith Birmingham, Pasadena Star-News/SCNG) In Northview’s 54-43 semifinal victory over Maranatha, different players stepped up offensively at times to shoulder the load, but one thing was constant, the Vikings’ smothering defense, which is what they will rely on again. The Vikings have two solid rebounders in junior center Giselle Garcia, averaging 12 points and eight rebounds, and their senior difference-maker Autumn Rivera, averaging 14 points and 12 rebounds. Junior guard Gabby Valdez, who scored a game-high 17 points in their win over Maranatha, is dangerous left open, but the Vikings know they will have their hands full with Oak Park, who defeated Ramona 49-43 to advance. Oak Park’s Julia Broms is a double-double-machine averaging 11 points and 11 rebounds, and her relies on defense just like Northview. Oak Park only averages 53 points a game, so who can impose their style better will likely be the one celebrating when it’s over. DIVISION 3A: Diamond Ranch (19-6) vs. No. 4 Mayfair (21-4) at Azusa Pacific, 2:30 p.m. The Panthers are trying to win their first championship since winning the Division III-AA crown in 2006 and have advanced to the championship as an unseeded team surviving two thrillers in the quarterfinals and semifinals.

(Photo by Keith Birmingham, Pasadena Star-News/SCNG) The Panthers played survive-and-advance to reach the final, beating second-seed Patriot in the quarterfinals 50-49 and then scratching another out a few days later, beating third-seed Oxnard 54-43. For the Panthers to raise another trophy, they will have to beat a seeded team for a third straight game in fourth-seed Mayfair, who knocked off top-seed St. Bonaventure, 59-47 in the semifinals. Diamond Ranch junior Kennedy Lindsey has the ability to take over games, she scored 25 points in a 65-63 win over Los Altos earlier in the season, and the Panthers also have two solid post players in Ashton Hudson and Jillian Goines. Mayfair has won eight straight and its last loss came in a showcase game to Los Altos, 61-55, a team that Diamond Ranch split with in the Hacienda League. The Monsoons’ most dangerous weapon is 5-foot-9 sophomore Jordyn Parham averaging 11 points and 9 rebounds.

He advanced to the quarterfinals with a 10-0 victory over Vacaville’s Jacob Peralta. Christian Nunez had little trouble in both of his matches at 126 pounds. He dominated Christian Antonio of Evergreen Valley High (25-9) and pinned Clovis’ Austin Rhodes in the first-period of their round of 16 match.

In a bit of an upset, senior Beau Perez, seeded tenth at 138-pounds, defeated seventh-seeded Eli Blake of Del Oro, 7-3, to secure his spot in Friday’s quarterfinals.
