GLENDALE — To get to the championship match, the Glendale High girls' water polo squad must first defeat what will likely be their toughest opponent this season. Before Glendale jumps into the pool to battle second-seeded Arroyo Grande in a CIF Southern Section Division IV semifinal match at 5 p.m. today at Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo, it will have to travel 200 miles by bus. That can be a tiresome task for some, but the Nitros (16-13) know what's in store and are prepared to face the talented Eagles (21-10)

After a scoreless first half, the Glendale High boys' soccer team couldn't keep up with powerful Arroyo Grande and lost, 2-0, in Friday's CIF Southern Section Division III first-round contest on the road. Glendale finished its season with a record of 8-7-5. The playoff appearance was the first for the Nitros -- who finished third in the Pacific League -- since 1997. Arroyo Grande (15-6-6) also ended Glendale's season in 1992 and 1993. The Eagles captured the PAC-5 championship after closing the season on a tear.

GLENDALE ? For the Hoover High baseball team, it was a long road to the playoffs. And, likely, an even longer one back home. The Tornadoes made the 170-mile trek to Arroyo Grande for a CIF Southern Section Division II wild-card game and came back with an 8-0 loss. Hoover (13-9), which took fourth in the Pacific League and made a return to the playoffs after a one-year hiatus, saw its postseason fate sealed with a disastrous fourth inning, in which it committed three errors and allowed all eight runs ?

SAN LUIS OBISPO — They traveled more than 200 miles to make history. Unfortunately for the members of the Glendale High girls' water polo squad, their season fell two steps short of winning a championship. Glendale saw its incredible postseason journey end Friday night with a 12-6 loss to second-seeded Arroyo Grande in a CIF Southern Section Division IV semifinal match at Cuesta College. The Nitros (16-14) made plenty of headlines throughout the past 10 days en route to becoming the school's first girls' program to advance to the CIF semifinals.

Charles Rich With an eight-day window to prepare for the postseason, the Crescenta Valley High boys' volleyball team kept something in mind. A slow start to a road-weary opponent would not be acceptable. CV successfully guarded against it, and had its foot on the gas pedal with the help of its hitting stars. Jeff O'Neill recorded a team-best 20 kills and teammate Stuart Lange added 12 to power the host Falcons to a 25-21, 25-21, 25-20 victory against Arroyo Grande in a CIF Southern Section Division II first-round match that took exactly one hour to complete Friday night.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Only two players on the 14-girl Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy softball roster had experience competing in a CIF postseason game. A lack of playoff experience didn’t matter for Tologs junior catcher Meghan Luera, though, as she brushed aside her initial moments of nervousness to ignite her squad when needed most. Luera had two hits and drove in two runs Tuesday afternoon to help Flintridge Sacred Heart register a 6-0 win against visiting Arroyo Grande in a CIF Southern Section Division III wild-card game at the Glendale Sports Complex.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - In a game rife with overwhelming momentum swings, it appeared early on in Friday night's CIF Southern Section Western Division quarterfinal game that whichever team had the momentum last would move on to the semifinals. That team, in resounding fashion, was visiting Arroyo Grande High. Underneath an avalanche of misfortune in the fourth quarter - one in which it had four turnovers and relinquished 25 points - St. Francis' football season came to a conclusion after a 49-28 loss at Friedman Field against second-seeded Arroyo Grande.

In its opening-round game of the CIF Southern Section Western Division playoffs, the St. Francis High football team encountered a bit of difficulty before turning back a league champion. It will seek to do the same thing once again, though the task figures to be more complicated, when St. Francis meets second-seeded Arroyo Grande in a quarterfinal home game at 7 p.m. today at Friedman Field. Arroyo Grande advanced to the championship game last season, falling to Gardena Serra.

Genetics is one thing. Being the daughter of a German gymnast, as Berit Kaesler is, may give an athlete a head start, but Kaesler might have been born to play water polo. ?I used to be a swimmer and I used to play soccer,? the La Cañada High senior said, ?but I was never that great at soccer, and swimming got really boring. Water polo seemed to be the perfect fit for me. Being able to swim and outswim other girls, all the strength required. ?And then there?s the thinking involved and you have to be able to see what?
