ARCADIA - It was a must-win situation for the Crescenta Valley High boys' volleyball team Tuesday evening, but Falcons Coach John Nelson wasn't quite sure why they didn't play like it. The Falcons needed to win their regular season finale against host Arcadia to finish in fourth place in the Pacific League standings and, in turn, earn an automatic playoff berth. Arcadia needed the win just as badly, as both teams went into the match at 5-6 in league play. Ultimately, the Falcons were flat and succumbed to a more energized team that played up to the high stakes and were swept, 25-23, 25-16, 25-17.

Mirjam Swanson GLENDALE -- Last season, the local focus of the Arcadia Invitational belonged, as usual, to Anita Siraki, who set a personal best in the 3,200 meters during the esteemed night portion of the meet. But she wasn't alone that evening. Crescenta Valley's Mike Beerer made the boys' shot put finals, Amber Nefas finished on the heels of the top finishers in the girls' 400, and Emily Forsythe was trying her luck in the girls' high jump. This season, the only local participant in the invitational portion of the 35th annual Arcadia Invitational tonight at Arcadia High is Glendale's Argishti Beglaryan, who is entered in the boys' 800 seeded event at 7 p.m. According to first-year Nitro Coach Edgar Torosyan, Beglaryan's been picking up the tempo of late, after cruising in most of his Pacific League races.

Peter Fuertes ARCADIA -- There weren't any records set by the Crescenta Valley High swimming team during the Pacific League finals Thursday at Arcadia High. But it might have been one of its most dominant performances ever in league. With the exception of the boys' 100-yard breaststroke event, the Falcons boys' and girls' teams took first place in all the events on their way to duplicating the success of the last two seasons: a Pacific League championship.

After 50 years in Glendale, Red Carpet Wine & Spirits is pulling up stakes and moving to Arcadia. To some, it's the end of an era. Glendale city spokesman Tom Lorenz said he bought cigars at Red Carpet to hand out after the birth of his first child. “If you wanted to get a good bottle of wine and pick out a good cigar, that was the place to go,” Lorenz said Wednesday. Opened in 1964 on Brand Boulevard by John Vincenti, the liquor store that specializes in fine wines moved to 400 E. Glenoaks Blvd.

ARCADIA — Having played the Apaches already this season, the Pasadena Poly boys' tennis team entered Friday's CIF Southern Section Division II second-round match armed with some firsthand experience against unbeaten Arcadia High. In the end it served less as a scouting report and more as a tool of prediction, as the Panthers fell by an identical 12-6 score the second time around on the third-seeded Apaches' home courts. "We were missing a couple players today, but the kids who played very well," said Poly Coach Howie Farer, who was without two of his starting doubles players due to family commitments.

ARCADIA — Historically, bad fortune has often come the way of the Crescenta Valley High girls' soccer team at Arcadia High. And when the latest installment of the heated rivalry occurred on Friday with first place in the Pacific League at stake, it was the same, classic bitter rivalry and, unfortunately for the Falcons, it was more bad fortune. On the strength of a pinball score from senior Sarah Rock off a corner kick in the 56th minute, Arcadia defeated visiting Crescenta Valley, 1-0. "We always know that it's gonna be a good game," said Falcons Coach Jorden Schulz, whose team fell to 7-4-1 overall and 5-1-1 in league, while Arcadia jumped out of a first-place tie, as it improved to 8-4-2, 6-0-1.

ARCADIA — It was simply a bad night for the Crescenta Valley High girls' basketball team. While the Arcadia Apaches notched a 42-29 Pacific League home victory Friday night, it was the Falcons who ultimately did themselves in during a fourth quarter in which they committed seven costly turnovers and scored just three points. "We are an inexperienced team," Crescenta Valley Coach Jason Perez said. "We missed shots, tightened up, and turned the ball over. " Despite it all, Crescenta Valley trailed just 31-29 after Melanie Minas' three-point field goal early in the final period.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Even on the occasion in which the Falcons were not their own worst enemies, nothing seemed to roll their way. Example enough came as Arcadia High shortstop Garrett Tuck barehanded a grounder from Crescenta Valley’s Joe Sedano, making a stellar play for the final out in the visiting Apaches’ 6-2 Pacific League win over the Falcons in front of a jampacked crowd at Stengel Field. “It’s easy to play when it’s 10-0,” said Falcons Coach Phil Torres, whose team had an eight-game winning streak halted, a streak in which seven of the wins came by seven runs or more.

GLENDALE — On the first day of spring break, the weather didn’t cooperate with a pair of local high school baseball teams. Crescenta Valley High and St. Francis were scheduled to participate in separate tournament contests Monday. However, rain forced those games to be postponed and made up on later dates. Crescenta Valley was slated to face Buena in a Babe Herman Tournament National Division contest at Stengel Field on Monday night. Veteran Crescenta Valley Coach Phil Torres, whose team opened the 44th installment of the tournament Saturday with a 6-2 victory against Montebello, arrived at Stengel Field around 6 a.m. Monday to check on the field conditions.

ARCADIA — During his initial three-year stint coaching the Crescenta Valley High girls’ soccer team, Reggie Rivas was never on the winning end of a match against Arcadia. Now, in his second season back, the Falcons have won three consecutive matches against the archrival Apaches, capped with Monday’s 3-0 Pacific League win at Arcadia High, perhaps one of the more lopsided wins Crescenta Valley has put up against Arcadia in recent memory. “Boy, it feels great to do it two years in a row,” said Rivas of defeating Arcadia on the road in consecutive seasons.
