PASADENA - For the second day in a row, the Crescenta Valley High boys' water polo team got out to a fast start, but the Falcons got a much different result Wednesday when they faced Cerritos. The CIF Southern Section Division IV No. 1-ranked Dons - particularly their standout Ikko Saito - were simply too much for the Falcons to handle. Crescenta Valley, which is ranked fifth in Division V, scored the first two goals of the match, but Cerritos had no trouble overcoming them for a dominating 14-6 victory at Pasadena City College.

To congratulate her students for reading more than 3 million minutes this school year, Cerritos Elementary School Principal Janice Hanada rode onto the school's outdoor playground on horseback Tuesday morning. Each year, students log the number of minutes they read outside of class, and the school celebrates in June with a party. Last year, school staff dressed in Hawaiian shirts and grass skirts and hosted a hula party. In 2002, staff hosted a salsa-dancing party.

Nonleague match or not, Tuesday afternoon?s boys? water polo showdown between CIF Southern Section Division VI sixth-ranked Crescenta Valley and No. 1 Cerritos carried the feel of a postseason match. It was certainly worth the wait, too, as the Dons arrived nearly an hour late to the match due to bus problems, before promptly engaging the host Falcons in a nailbiting, back-and-forth saga that wasn?t decided until the final seconds. With just 7.95 seconds remaining, Crescenta Valley called a final timeout with the score knotted at 11. The ensuing play was designed to get everyone on the right side of the pool with Falcons Mason Holland and Tristan Winterhalter crossing on the left side.

PASADENA — Give the members of the Crescenta Valley High boys’ water polo team a man-advantage opportunity and it’s supposed to be like sharks at a feeding frenzy. The Falcons have normally used the advantage to their liking in recent seasons. On Wednesday afternoon, they practically lacked any bite with it at crucial times. Crescenta Valley went two for 10 with the man-advantage in an 11-9 nonleague loss to Cerritos at Pasadena City College. Crescenta Valley Coach Jan Sakonju, who led the Falcons to Pacific League and CIF Southern Section Division VI championships last season, wasn’t aware that the Falcons (3-6)

LA CRESCENTA - First the Crescenta Valley High boys' volleyball team broke Cerritos' spirit with a decisive win in a pivotal third game. Then the host Falcons simply broke the match wide open with a fourth-game rout to claim a 25-19, 22-25, 25-14, 25-13 victory in a CIF Southern Section Division III second-round playoff game on Thursday night. "That was a blast, it was so much fun," said Falcons outside hitter Wesley Cormier, who finished with 10 kills and four blocks and had four kills and an ace in the final game, which Crescenta Valley led by as many as 15 points.

It's long past time that the Glendale Unified School District and, especially, the companies responsible for rebuilding Cerritos Elementary School explain what, exactly, is taking so long to finish the project. Cerritos, which started a $15-million construction and renovation project in the fall of 1999, is still being worked on. Though officials say the school is about 97% complete, that outstanding 3% apparently is critical: Cerritos' main offices, the multipurpose room, library, kitchen, parking lot, gates and fences are not finished, and only about a third of the school playground can be used by students.

Erik Boal GLENDALE SPORTS COMPLEX -- Crescenta Valley High softball Coach Dan Berry has been around the sport long enough to know that in a contest of two evenly-matched teams, one play can decide the outcome. In all but one of their 30 games entering Tuesday's CIF Southern Section Division II playoff semifinals, the Falcons made those plays. But in the top of the seventh inning, Corona High cashed in on the lone miscue made by either team and advanced to its first division title game since 1992, defeating CV, 1-0. "It comes down to a break and as far as evenly-matched teams, this is as close as you can get," said Berry, who led his squad to the playoff semifinals for the first time since 1986.

For the first time in its history, Cerritos Elementary is eligible to apply for the California Distinguished Schools award, a program that honors schools across the state for closing the achievement gap. For Principal Cynthia McCarty, who is in her fourth year as head of the school, the first-time eligibility validates the hard work of students and teachers. “We're enjoying the ride and watching our kids achieve,” she said. During the past six years, Cerritos Elementary has reported significant gains on the Academic Performance Index, a score assigned to schools that is based on how well students perform on state exams.

Glendale Community College track and field Coach Eddie Lopez is basically conceding any thought of a team title when the Vaqueros women take to the Cerritos College track for the 2012 California Community College Track and Field Championships. "Laney [College] is going to win it, but as the other teams cancel each other out, we're going to be right there for second or third with Cerritos and Antelope Valley," Lopez said. "Every point counts. We start with the 10K, get some places there.

The principal of Cerritos Elementary School said that despite the deadly officer-involved shooting early this morning just steps from the campus, student life has remained calm. Principal Cynthia McCarty and a psychologist visited classrooms to meet with students who may have needed any help coping with the police activity, but they were by and large understanding and expressed no major concerns. McCarty also created a script for teachers for student inquiries about the shooting, in which a man was shot and killed by Glendale police officers after engaging them in an intense gun battle early this morning.

Arms loaded with packages and bags, they made trip after trip to the hospital's main lobby until it was piled high with gifts intended for needy families at Cerritos Elementary School.

Glendale Unified is appealing a state decision to put two local campuses on a list of the 1,000 lowest-performing schools in California. Cerritos and Muir Elementary schools were caught up in a bill that authorized the California Department of Education to create a list of the 1,000 lowest-performing schools. District officials and school board members cleared the action, arguing that the Open Enrollment Act that became law in January contradicts the standard academic achievement measures that have been in place since 1999.

GLENDALE — Teachers at Cerritos and Edison elementary schools would have to relocate some instructional supplies and lose storage space if Glendale Unified increases class sizes to handle projected state funding cuts, district officials said. Both schools would be the tightest squeeze among the district’s 20 elementary campuses, and require rearranging some space to accommodate up to 30 students in every kindergarten through third-grade class, a cost-saving plan that board members are expected to approve Tuesday, officials said.
