LA CRESCENTA — No one has been able to stop the Crescenta Valley High boys' and girls' swimming teams in the first half of Pacific League competition this season.
With the CIF postseason fast approaching on the horizon, the Falcons would like nothing more than to keep that momentum flowing in the second half of league. They certainly showed no signs of slowing down on Thursday, besting visiting Glendale, 135-34, on the girls' side and 125-46 on the boys', while winning every event.
"It's a crucial time to get ready for the end of the season because we have to figure out who needs to get the extra yardage, who we're going to be tapering for league and who we're going to be tapering for CIF," said Falcons boys' Coach Jan Sakonju, whose team, a strong contender in CIF Southern Section Division II, is undefeated on the season at 7-0, in addition to being 3-0 in league. "It's a good spot for these guys and they're competing with each other, as well, in these races and Glendale's got several really good swimmers that put up some good races for us."
