Given the outcome, Crescenta Valley boys' volleyball Head Coach John Nelson did not seem too disappointed after Tuesday's match against Claremont. Up two games to none, the Falcons could not pull off the upset and were defeated in five games. "I wouldn't say it's one we let get away," said Nelson of the 25-23, 25-22, 22-25, 19-25, 11-15 thriller at Crescenta Valley. "We're getting better and we know we can play head to head with a top-ranked team. "We were pretty good for two games, but we started making mistakes and got a little conservative in the final three games.

LA CRESCENTA - Third-place finishes were up for grabs for both local teams in the Crescenta Valley High Girls' Volleyball Varsity Tournament entering the final round on Saturday. For Burroughs, it was a showing in the tournament's championship Gold Division, where a win over Claremont sealed the Indians' position behind Alta Loma and champion Saugus. For its Pacific League compatriot, host Crescenta Valley, third place in the consolation Silver Division was not to be, as the Falcons ended their day with a loss to Taft.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan CLAREMONT -- At first glance, the Crescenta Valley High boys' volleyball team's four-game loss Wednesday to host Claremont appears to be just another setback. But with a 9-15, 15-12, 15-7, 15-5 victory by the Wolfpack against their Pacific League rival, Claremont cemented the Falcons' fate in the league standings. With three league matches remaining, CV is 8-5, 4-3 in league, and will probably finish in third place behind Claremont and Arcadia, meaning the Falcons would open the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division II playoffs on the road and against a top seed.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan LA CRESCENTA -- Four matches. Four losses. The downward skid of the Crescenta Valley High boys' water polo team's season continued with another defeat to a playoff-caliber squad Wednesday in a nonleague match. The Falcons played to their potential and stronger than past matches, but when the final horn sounded at Crescenta Valley High, Falcon second-year coach Jan Sakonju was still in search of his first win of the young season.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — Glendale High boys' volleyball Coach Ta'ase Mose was clearly frustrated after his team's latest loss Friday afternoon. Refusing to comment after the contest, and instead let his captain do the post-game interview, Mose witnessed a 25-17, 25-9, 25-11 shellacking at the hands of Claremont, who dominated all facets of the league match at Glendale High. "They're a good team, but I thought we could have won a game if we passed better," said Glendale senior outside hitter and captain Regan Ornopia after the team's second Pacific League loss in as many matches.

CLAREMONT - Perhaps it was the postgame reaction of the Flintridge Prep football team on a sunny afternoon in Claremont that best signified just how far the Rebels have come in the span of just one year. Having hardly played their best, the Rebels were disappointed in the performance that added up to a dominant 40-13 victory over host Webb in their Prep League finale, but were still rejoicing in the history achieved with the triumph. Indeed, Prep has come a long way from a 2011 squad that had just one win, forfeited two games, went winless in league and would've gladly taken a victory of any sort.

CLAREMONT — Entering its CIF Southern Section Division II first-round match Wednesday afternoon, the Flintridge Prep boys' tennis team had little knowledge about Claremont. A short time later, the Rebels discovered the Wolfpack's strength — an excellent singles lineup. "They are really solid in singles and there wasn't much we could do," said Flintridge Prep Coach Ron Catano, whose team saw its season wrap up with a 12-6 road defeat. "I thought we could get some more wins in singles, but we couldn't.
