Hamlet Nalbandyan If there was anyone the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls' basketball team would want at the free-throw line with the game on the line, junior guard Nikki Witt would be it. "She's the only player in practice who could hit 10 out of 10 without even hesitating," Tolog Coach Richard Caballero said. But in Thursday night's CIF Southern Section Division IVAA first-round contest at Westridge, Witt, like so many of her teammates, was struggling.

Erik Boal The outcomes were different, but the sequel was just as exciting as the first. For the second straight year, Flintridge Prep's nonleague football game against North Hollywood Campbell Hall came down to the final minute and for the second consecutive season, a big defensive play at the goal line proved to be the difference. And this time, the Rebels were on the right end of that clutch effort. Jordan Nomura and Alfred Yi prevented Justin Green from catching the ball on a fourth-and-five play with 42 seconds remaining, turning away a potential touchdown and preserving Flintridge Prep's 27-20 win Saturday night at Van Nuys Birmingham High.

GLENDALE — With respective second-place league finishes behind them, Flintridge Prep and Crescenta Valley High’s baseball teams now enter the chaos and great unknown that is the CIF Southern Section postseason. The Rebels will travel, and travel far, to face Capistrano Valley Christian in the opening round of the Division VI playoffs on Friday, while the Falcons will host Northwood today in a Division II wild-card game at 4:15 p.m. at Stengel Field. While Prep was one of seven second-place squads to receive first-round placement in Division VI, which features 11 wild-card games, CV was not fortunate enough to be selected as one of four second-place squads in the first round in Division II, but is, instead, in one of the division’s mind-spinning 16 wild-card games.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE ? Ahead by six runs with just two innings to play, the Crescenta Valley High baseball team seemed to have its first-round CIF Southern Section Division I game in the bag. The Falcons did win, 9-6, against visiting Long Beach Wilson on Thursday evening at Stengel Field. But the win didn't come before the game got real interesting. "It was that one inning," said Falcon starting pitcher Dustin Emmons in reference to the Bruins' four-run sixth. It was a stanza in which the go-ahead run came to the plate after the Falcons began the inning with a seemingly comfortable 8-2 lead.
