Jalise Chatman scored 23 points as the Ridgefield girls basketball team clinched a playoff berth with 51-37 win over Mark Morris on Friday at Ridgefield.

Reese Johnston had 11 points, eight steals and seven rebounds for the Monarchs before fouling out early in the fourth quarter.

LA CENTER 42, KING’S WAY CHRISTIAN 31 — Jesse Tomberlin scored 15 points and Talia Wise added 10 as the Wildcats got a big win to stay in the hunt for a district playoff berth.
