Dear Falcon Families,


Congratulations to our Winter Sports teams on a great season. Boys basketball made it to the CIF division 2 city semifinals while girls basketball qualified for the CIF open division. With the open division qualification, girls basketball gets an automatic seeding in the state playoffs. Today, we’ll find out if boys basketball made state playoffs as well. The playoff brackets come out today for both teams so we have our fingers crossed for advantageous seedings and some fun state playoff games this coming week. See below for the latest updates as of 2-26-23.
