• Bishop Montgomery pushes nation’s top team Chino Hills to final buzzer; loses 71-67

    What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? One of the best high school basketball games of the year, in the case of the highly-anticipated Jan. 30 matchup between the Bishop Montgomery Knights, ranked seventh in the nation and second in the state, and the Chino Hills Huskies, the nation’s top dog.

  • Catholic school championships: Fall ‘15 roundup

    Congratulations to all of the local Catholic schools that won a state, league or divisional championship during the fall sports season! Here is a roundup of the schools in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles that were able to hang new banners on their walls:

  • St. Bernard wins against Cantwell-Sacred Heart in final seconds

    In sports, it doesn’t matter who has the lead for the longest amount of time: all that matters is who leads last. Just look at the St. Bernard Vikings’ basketball game Jan. 20 against the Cantwell-Sacred Heart Cardinals.

    Of the 32 minutes on the game clock, the home Cardinals held the lead for 31:55 of them. But the visiting Vikings, poised in the face of not only a major height disadvantage but also an 8-10 point deficit for much of the night, refused to give up.


  • Crespi downs Loyola, extends winning streak to 17

    The reigning Division 4 California State high school basketball champion Crespi Celts may have lost a few of their senior leaders heading into this season, but have lost none of their drive to repeat.


  • St. Lucy’s brings home first place honors in water polo

    The St. Lucy’s Priory High School’s Varsity Water Polo team won first place in the Five Counties Girls Water Polo Tournament Jan. 8-9 in Riverside. 

  • Loyola staves off Chaminade comeback to snap four-game skid

    When the Loyola Cubs held the Chaminade Eagles scoreless for the entire first quarter of the Jan. 6 high school basketball game, it was hard to imagine how the Eagles were going to score a basket, let alone get themselves back into the lopsided game.

  • American Martyrs wins championship over St. Philip the Apostle

    Notre Dame High School hosted the Catholic Youth Organization Flag Football Championship Nov. 22 in Sherman Oaks, featuring the title game between American Martyrs in Manhattan Beach against St. Philip the Apostle in Pasadena.  

  • Serra High represented by 10 recent grads in 2015 USC-UCLA football game

    No sporting event splits the city of Los Angeles in two quite like the USC-UCLA college football game. And perhaps no one can relate to the inner turmoil the city endures when the two perennial powerhouses clash each season more than Scott Altenberg, a UCLA graduate and season ticket holder — and the head football coach of nationally ranked Serra High School in Gardena — who has seen several of his best former players go on to play for USC.

  • Assumption wins CYO Girls Volleyball championship

    The 2015 CYO Girls Volleyball playoffs culminated in Championship Sunday at St. Paul High School in Santa Fe Springs on Nov. 8 with a rematch of last year’s championship between American Martyrs of Manhattan Beach, the No. 1 seed, against Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Pasadena, No. 2 seed and the defending champions.

  • Sweet three-peat for Immaculate Heart cross country

    Immaculate Heart’s Varsity Cross Country Team crushed its challengers at recent league finals to capture the Sunshine League Championship for the third straight year. Its top runners have since capped that achievement by qualifying for CIF-SS Finals next weekend.

Iowa and us in a Year of Mercy

Kathryn Jean Lopez

It was in the general-purpose room of St. Francis of Assisi Church in West Des Moines that Donald Trump made his last pitch to Iowa voters, inside a caucus room. He wanted to make sure people remembered that not only will he build the wall on our border with Mexico, but that he’s the only candidate who will make Mexico pay for it.
