Jim Riggio LA CANADA HIGH -- It is tough to figure that another girls' volleyball team in the CIF Southern Section can dominate La Canada High on its home court in front of a large, near capacity crowd. But Bishop Montgomery did just that. Despite an upstanding effort put forth by the previously unbeaten Spartans, the Knights defeated La Canada, 15-4, 15-6, 15-10, in Division III-AA semifinal match. Bishop Montgomery (27-3) advances to the division final against either Harvard-Westlake or Corona del Mar. The Knights have appeared in the CIF final every year since 1992, winning four times.

Charles Rich LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE -- Carlos Marco would like to settle down. It will require composure from the St. Francis High boys' soccer player while learning to play a full season as a forward. Marco, who previously played in the midfield, looked like a chiseled veteran Tuesday night as he scored two goals to lead St. Francis to a 6-0 nonleague match victory against visiting Bishop Montgomery. It marked the first shutout of the season for St. Francis (3-0)

Hamlet Nalbandyan LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE -- The clock couldn't tick away fast enough Tuesday. Every time the Glendale High boys' basketball team snuck a peak at the scoreboard at La Canada High, the margin between itself and Bishop Montgomery kept growing. And growing. The nightmare finally came to a halt when Nitro guard Ara Garabet dribbled out the clock, his team falling on the short-end of a 98-55 ambush in the hands of one of the premier teams in Southern California in a pool-play game of the 11th annual La Canada Holiday Basketball Classic.

TORRANCE — If advancing to the second round of the playoffs and losing to the defending champion is considered a successful season, then the St. Francis High basketball team made some large strides. Under the guidance of first-year co-coaches Ray O’Brien and Jeff Stephens, the Golden Knights followed a defense-first philosophy that kept them close against some perennial powers. St. Francis showed that again Friday night by turning in one of its top efforts of the season in a 67-59 loss on the road to top-seeded Bishop Montgomery in a CIF Southern Section IV-AA game.

Charles Rich The five stitches Craig Ballard received hardly pained him running up and down the court. In recent tournaments, the La Canada High boys' basketball player has encountered his share of injuries. The latest came when he suffered a cut to the bottom of his chin, requiring the stitches. Ballard stepped up big for La Canada, as he scored 16 points and added a game-high four assists to propel the Spartans to a 69-50 victory against Bishop Montgomery in the championship contest of the 14th annual La Canada Holiday Classic at La Canada High on Monday night.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan When Andrew Scott and Billy Hofman hit consecutive unanswered three-pointers, the game became respectable. And when Scott sank three-pointers on the two ensuing possessions, things then became very interesting. But when the Spartans committed two crucial turnovers in the fourth quarter, it exemplified where they stood against Torrance Bishop Montgomery. La Canada is a strong team that relies on its perimeter players to score the bulk of its points, but for now, the Spartans are a notch -- maybe two -- below the three-time CIF Southern Section champion.

GLENDALE — During one of its most successful seasons in program history, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy basketball team has accomplished feats such as winning four Mission League games and advancing all the way to the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Division 5-AA playoffs — both unprecedented in previous seasons of struggle. "We're very happy," said Tologs Coach Gino Pacella. "We've broken a lot of barriers this year. " But breaking into the semifinals will be an arduous task, as the Tologs are set to travel today to face No. 1 seed St. Bernard at 7 p.m. "Everybody's gonna have to dig down deep," Pacella said.

GLENDALE — Having endured postseason-less campaigns a year ago, the St. Francis High and Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy basketball teams restructured their respective foundations by hiring new coaches. For St. Francis co-coaches Jeff Stephens and Ray O’Brien and Flintridge Sacred Heart Coach Gino Pacella to have any shot at guiding their programs back to the postseason, they needed to count on certain players to help get their teams over the top. Several standout athletes made significant contributions to get the Golden Knights and Tologs back in the playoffs this past season, as was evidenced by Malik Speed and Tommy Jordan of St. Francis and Vanessa Romero of Flintridge Sacred Heart being named to the All-Mission League teams.

ERIK BOAL Forgive me in advance if my attribution seems to be a bit of a reach, but when I look back on the past week in high school sports, the first thing that comes to mind is Queen Latifah's song "Ladies First." Now yours truly doesn't claim to be a rap or hip-hop expert, but Latifah's song -- featuring Monie Love -- off the 1989 album "All Hail The Queen" seems to be the ideal tribute to one of the best weeks for local female athletes in recent memory.
