STUDIO CITY - Whether or not anyone within the Pacific League or CIF Southern Section Division V will stop the Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo team from repeating as CIF Southern Section divisional champion will not be determined for weeks. In the meanwhile, the Falcons had no problems demonstrating that they could play in another stratum, as Division V second-ranked Crescenta Valley was at times dominant in frustrating and ultimately defeating Division III No. 2 Harvard-Westlake, 15-9, on the road Wednesday afternoon.

All those mornings of getting up early for practice, followed by three additional hours of practice after school might have seemed overwhelming at first for Gabriel Isacson. If the goalkeeper for the Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo team wanted positive results and the challenge of vying for a CIF Southern Section Division V championship, the practice sessions would be paramount for her to succeed. "Our practices were a lot harder," said Isacson, a senior who was named All-CIF Southern Section Division V Player of the Year after helping lead the Falcons to the program's first CIF championship.

Though the Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo team came up short of winning the CIF Southern Section Division V championship for a second straight season, the Falcons still commanded plenty of attention when it came to the opponents trying to contain them. Backed by a strong cast of players who excelled on both ends of the pool, Crescenta Valley captured the Pacific League championship for a fifth straight season. It propelled them to a run to the semifinals for the fourth season in a row. For their collective performances, six Crescenta Valley players were bestowed with All-CIF Southern Section recognition after the Falcons finished 24-7, 8-0 in league.

BURBANK - Defense has long been a cornerstone for Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo success. Thus, on Thursday, as a lack of offensive execution and production drew the ire of Falcons Coach Brent Danna, it was defensive dominance throughout that still afforded Crescenta Valley a comfortable 13-1 victory against Glendale in the Pacific League Tournament final at Burbank High to wrap up the league crown. “Everything's defense,” said Crescenta Valley's Elissa Arnold, who had four goals and four steals.
