GLENDALE — This is the sixth of eight consecutive editions in which the News-Press looks back at the area's 2009-10 seasons, school by school, before looking ahead at the year to come.
Whether it was Prep League titles won, CIF playoff appearances or even a defining performance at a state meet, there was plenty to keep track of during the 2009-10 school year as it relates to Flintridge Prep athletics.
The highlights began in the fall with the boys' cross-country team's turnaround third-place finish at the CIF state meet. The girls' volleyball team also returned to the playoffs after a lengthy absence.
Winter saw the girls' soccer team overachieve from wire to wire and claim the Prep League title.
The boys' hoops squad also won its third straight league crown, but it was the girls' basketball team that enjoyed the deepest CIF playoff run of the school year by advancing to the quarterfinals.
