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.

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.
