B.P. Perez CLAREMONT -- After back-to-back losses and back-to-back late buses, the Crescenta Valley High boys' volleyball team's season was ended and all post-season hopes faded as the Falcons were swept by Claremont High, 15-7, 16-14, and 17-15 on Friday during a match for third place in the Pacific League. It was the second day in a row that the bus to pick up CV was an hour late and for the second day in a row the Falcons lost, but this time their CIF playoff hopes went with it. "The bus being late didn't make us hit the ball out or shank a pass," said Crescenta Valley Coach John Nelson.

Hamlet Nalbandyan CRESCENTA VALLEY HIGH -- The jump serve could make it or break it, and for the Crescenta Valley High boys' volleyball team Thursday, it did both. CV lost the first two games against Claremont High, largely due to the fact the serving game wasn't working. But the Falcons raised their level of play and came back to win in five, 9-15, 9-15, 15-9, 15-11, 15-9, in a Pacific League match at CV. One of the reasons the Falcons made such a big turnaround was the jump serve, which not only got the Falcons' intensity flowing, but also fazed the Wolfpack mentally.

Charles Rich Given that spacious Mt. Baldy can be seen from the front entrance of the Claremont High gymnasium, John Nelson insisted that trying to repeat as Pacific League champions won't be like scaling the topographical landmark. In fact, he's not all that worried about climbing back to the top of the league mountain. Nelson, the 16-year Crescenta Valley High coach, analyzed that shortly after Claremont posted a 22-25, 25-23, 25-20, 25-16 league victory against the shell-shocked Falcons on Wednesday.

Jim Riggio GLENDALE -- If there is a jinx that is following the Crescenta Valley High girls' soccer team, the Falcons should pull off their second consecutive upset in the CIF Southern Section playoffs.

Hamlet Nalbandyan LA CRESCENTA -- Maybe falling behind by nine points in the third game was the best thing that could have happened to the Crescenta Valley High boys' volleyball team in Thursday's Pacific League match against Claremont High. Because after hitting rock bottom, the Falcons were a totally different team. And even though John Nelson's squad wasn't able to win that third game, the momentum and match was theirs. CV used a 42-16 run that stretched from the third game to the end of the match to top Claremont, 9-15, 15-10, 13-15, 15-6, 15-5, at CV. The win puts CV (8-4, 7-1 in league)
