However, things changed in a matter of weeks after Millsap-Kalaba was named the new coach at Utah State.

LA CRESCENTA — In reality, clinching the Pacific League title outright has been simply a technicality for the Crescenta Valley High softball team. But on Tuesday afternoon, the Falcons wrapped up their second straight outright league title and, perhaps more importantly, continued to build momentum for the impending CIF postseason. “It’s definitely good to go in having [momentum], we definitely need to have some sort of persona with us,” said Crescenta Valley shortstop Baillie Kirker, whose grand slam keyed an 11-run second inning that bolstered the Falcons’ 14-1 five-inning win against Glendale.

It’s hard to know where this story started, but there are many chapters of it. Years ago, Jim Cancelosi and Randy Kirker played together at Crescenta Valley High in different sports. They graduated in 1979 and ’80 respectively, but came back together in their post-college years, playing club softball together. Though they grew apart, each had a daughter in the same year, they found a way to get back together on the softball field again. Both Baillie Kirker and Kali Cancelosi fell in love with the game at an early age and forged a friendship while playing T-ball.
