GLENDALE — For the third time in four seasons, the Crescenta Valley High softball team has earned itself a spot in the CIF Southern Section Division III quarterfinals, where it will host Chino Hills at 3:15 p.m. today. With the pressure on and the stakes high, for an experienced core of Falcons, this is where they want, expect and are used to being. “You’re always gonna feel those butterflies, but we know how it feels,” said Falcons senior center fielder Stephanie Ziemann, an All-Area and All-CIF selection last season when Crescenta Valley advanced to the semifinal round.

The Laguna Beach water polo boys' 14-and-under team opened its new season Sunday with a 13-3 victory over visiting Chino Hills. Laguna led from the start as Robert Chew scored three goals, Spencer Dodson scored twice and Nolan McConnell had a goal in the first period of play. Goalie Peter Weidner, a newcomer to the team, got off to a strong shot with a block of a four-meter attempt in the opening quarter. Dodson, Chew, Cole Kennedy and Nicky Brunner scored in the second frame, and the defense of Robbie Quellmalz, Zach Riegler, Derek Kott, Tommy Renner and new players Brent Donenfeld, Trevor Bass and Casey Connors held Chino Hills to a single first-half goal.

The magic didn't continue for the Crescenta Valley girls' varsity water polo team in the CIF-Southern Section playoffs last week at Burbank High. The Falcons, who swept through the Pacific League Tournament earlier this month to win the league title with a 7-0 record, lost an 8-7 heartbreaker to visiting Chino Hills on Feb. 17 in Division III First Round play. Eliminated from post season competition, CV finished the season with a 14-13 overall record. The lead went back and forth several times during the match, but with 17 second left to go in regulation, the Huskies scored a goal to break up a 7-7 tie and send CV home for the rest of the playoffs.

In Baillie Kirker?s storied and glorious tenure at Crescenta Valley High, May 28?s afternoon might very well have seen the ultra-talented senior turn in her most clutch performance. Unfortunately for Kirker ? who once again claimed the state?s all-time home run crown all to herself ? and the Falcons, she might very well have saved her best for last. Crescenta Valley came away two runs short, or perhaps even less, as it fell against Chino Hills, 3-2, in the CIF Southern Section Division III quarterfinal game.

After a goal by forward Vanessa Capra tied the match at 2, the match went into a 10-minute overtime session, where neither team scored. But North Irvine won on penalty kicks to take home the trophy.

OXNARD - What very well could have been an afternoon of elimination was instead a Thursday filled with elation for five local girls' golfers who participated in the CIF Southern Section Northern Individual Regional at par-72 River Ridge Golf Course. Crescenta Valley High's Jocelyn Chia and Audrey Chung, Burrough's Joany Goa, Burbank's Irene Maemura and La Cañada's Melissa Leo all shot at least two strokes below the tournament's cutoff point and advanced to the following week's Women's Southern California Golf Assn.

The chase for a CIF Southern Section girls' volleyball championship has begun, as the postseason pairings were released Saturday morning, with wild-card playoff action beginning Saturday night. Mission League co-champion Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy received the highest local bid, as the Tologs (23-4) were given the fourth seed in Division I-AA. Yet, the seed wasn't exactly a welcomed sight. “Nothing against the teams in the lower bracket, but we're in the upper bracket and that just seems like a much tougher bracket,” said Flintridge Sacred Heart Coach Ernest Banaag, whose team won its first league title since 2006.

During the past three seasons, the Glendale Community College men's golf team has enjoyed its share of success participating in the Tee-Off Classic. The Vaqueros captured the two-day event last season after winning it in 2010 at Los Serranos Country Club. With those accomplishments documented, Glendale entered this season with virtually a new team. And it was one that had little knowledge about the Chino Hills-based course. Glendale finished third in the 14-team tournament Wednesday, shooting a 760. “I'm very disappointed from the standpoint that we weren't able to get in a practice round because hardly any of our guys have played here before,” Glendale Coach Greg Osbourne said.

CHINO HILLS - There was a certain nervousness on the face and in the mannerisms of Burbank High sophomore Irene Maemura juxtaposed with a sense of disappointment from Crescenta Valley's Jocelyn Chia and the three other locals who trekked up to Thursday afternoon's CIF Southern Section Girls' Golf Individual Final at the Western Hills Country Club. While Crescenta Valley's Audrey Chung, Burroughs' Joany Gao and La Cañada's Melissa Leo had correctly guessed that their seasons had concluded before any results were finalized, Maemura still waited nervously, barely touching her complimentary lunch, while Chia sat and waited for results.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - Deciding the winner in a soccer game that goes to penalty kicks is a lot like flipping a coin, Flintridge Prep girls' Coach Esteban Chavez said. The Rebels wound up on the wrong side of the coin Friday when they hosted Chino Hills, which finished third in the Sierra League, in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs. Huskies goalie Merrick Ives was tough all day and unbeatable in penalties, stopping all four penalty shots that came her way to clinch an upset, 1-1 (2-0)

For a Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team setting forth in hopes of defending its CIF Southern Section Division I championship, there is nothing new about traveling south into Orange County. Only this time around, the Tologs will take to the road from the onset, as they drew an opening-round contest at Capistrano Valley on Friday, upon the release Monday of the CIF playoff soccer brackets. "It's Mission Viejo on a Friday," said Tologs co-Coach Frank Pace of making the 70-mile trip down to Mission Viejo.

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.
