Note #1 From The Editor: To all of our High School Hoops’ Fans, here’s our coverage of this season’s first Boys Varsity basketball game between two of the oldest archrivals in L.A. City Schools history, the Garfield Bulldogs and the Roosevelt Rough Riders. This game took place on January 13, 2017 in the first encounter on their Eastern League schedules. The “Dawgs,” coached by the highly respected veteran, Ricardo Rivas, entered the last contest of the first round of Eastern League play with 9-7 overall record and a 1-1 record in league play, while the “Riders,” coached by fifth-year coach, Mario Perez, came into the game with an overall record of 6-9 and a league record of 1-1. Take a good look at our game video with our exclusive photo gallery and see all of the emotion and excitement whenever these two teams lock-up in battle. The yearly Battle for East L.A. and all of the accompanying bragging rights continues with this “War On The Floor.”
Note #2 From The Editor: The second round League game takes place this Friday night, February 10th at Garfield High. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 pm. If you are planning to attend, we strongly advise you to arrive early as it will be yet another sold out game. If you can’t make it, then we encourage you to check our website next week for our exclusive coverage of Game #2.
Lastly, be sure to check out the great pictures of the packed Rough Rider gymnasium and the Roosevelt Cheerleading team.
