VAN NUYS — Erin Ashby proved to be a consistent and reliable player the past four seasons for the Crescenta Valley High softball team. Whether in the circle or at the plate, Ashby played a large role in shaping some successful Falcon teams, including helping Crescenta Valley gain a split of the Pacific League championship this season. The Stanford-bound Ashby had one final opportunity to compete at the high school level and she finished in a big way, this time sporting another uniform.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — The Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy softball team didn’t like doing it, but it did it anyway. For seven innings of Tuesday’s Mission League duel against visiting Sherman Oaks Notre Dame, the Tologs flirted with allowing the Knights to take a lead. It never happened. Notre Dame stranded 13 runners, including 10 in scoring position, as Sacred Heart escaped with a 5-3 victory. “[My hair] is all gray,” Tologs Coach Kirk Nishiyama said.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — Flintridge Prep softball Coach Julie Jaime didn’t know much about Paraclete other than it featured a strong lineup. Jaime then saw first-hand how strong the lineup could be. Flintridge Prep saw its season come to a close Tuesday afternoon, as Paraclete scored four runs in the fifth inning to earn a 4-1 victory in a CIF Southern Section Division V wild-card game. “They had some little bloopers and some big hits and it wasn’t a good combination for us,” Jaime said.

LA CANADA - In some ways, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy and Flintridge Prep softball teams are similar. That proved to be evident when the teams met Wednesday afternoon in a nonleague contest at Flintridge Prep. The Tologs and Rebels both possess strong lineups. However, both teams are still trying to shore up their respective pitching staffs and defense. Flintridge Sacred Heart showed some more pop Wednesday, as it finished with 11 hits en route to a 21-11 win in a contest called after five innings because of the 10-run mercy rule.

Those nerves were quickly calmed by a number ofTri-Valley miscues - four errors, three passed balls and three wild pitches - that helped fuel a CVFH offense that had 13 hits, including multi-hit games from Alex Howard, Cailen Rodriguez and Camie Ellingford, in a 10-0 mercy-rule victory over five innings at Kent D.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - Neither Chris Stroh or Julian Jarrad are one of the 25 pitchers listed on the Glendale Angelenos roster, but they were both called upon by Angelenos Coach Tony Riviera to close out Friday's game. While the pair let one run slip through, Jarrad retired the final two batters of the game to pick up the save in the 4-3 victory over Long Beach Legend at Stengel Field. "Stroh has been fantasy pitching in the outfield the entire season and I got a little tired of seeing it so I thought I'd let him put his money where his mouth is," said Riviera, whose team improved to 19-6 with the win. "We try to do stuff differently all the time to make the team feel a little bit loose and confident.

Even if the board adopts the proposed budget, issuing the bonds and raising rates would require further review.
