LA CANADA - Evan Crawford and the rest of the St. Francis High basketball team were determined to make things difficult for San Dimas' big man, 6-foot-5 Jordan Stokes, during Friday's CIF Southern Section Division III-A first-round playoff game. With a stifling defensive pressure that kept Stokes scoreless in the first half, the Golden Knights turned that intensity into a big lead in the first half. With Crawford leading the way with a triple-double, St. Francis was able to ride that lead to an even bigger advantage in the second half, which paved the way for a 61-38 victory at home.

The pews were nearly packed at the Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Montrose on Sunday afternoon. Church choir members as well as novice singers from far and wide came together to give a gospel concert in the high ceilinged house of the Lord. The concert is the culmination of a two-day workshop lead by recording artist Eyvonne Williams. Williams spent a few days last week teaching the mostly traditional singing choir how to use their bodies as instruments, "breath being the main thing," Williams said, and how to put meaning into church music.
