What began as a mutual exercise in frustration and futility for the Burroughs and Crescenta Valley high football teams on Oct. 2 at Moyse Field ended as anything but. For three quarters of the both teams? Pacific League opener, the Falcons seemed intent on inflicting self-sabotage, while the Indians appeared utterly incapable of fully capitalizing on three turnovers and numerous Crescenta Valley mistakes. Beginning in the final seconds of the third quarter, however, the two rivals engaged in a slugfest that saw five lead changes and jaw-dropping big plays from both sides and ended in a thrilling 34-32 win for Crescenta Valley.

LA CRESCENTA - No matter where a Hoover High boys' basketball player stood on the court, they rarely appeared comfortable being guarded by Crescenta Valley. Passes were deflected or stolen and shots were sometimes altered. It translated into frustration for Hoover and elation for Crescenta Valley on Monday. “I thought our defense did a good job, especially in the second half,” said Crescenta Valley guard Cole Currie, who finished with a game-high 23 points to help host Crescenta Valley roll to a 69-36 Pacific League victory against Hoover.

WALNUT - Often times, teams meeting in the playoffs aren't too familiar with each other. That wasn't the case when the Crescenta Valley High boys' water polo team met Walnut on Wednesday afternoon. Crescenta Valley and Walnut played Oct. 23 in a nonleague game. Crescenta Valley Coach Jan Sakonju recorded the match and provided film to each of his players to study in case the teams met in the postseason. The Falcons reviewed the film Monday and Tuesday, but it didn't seem to provide any help in the rematch as Walnut picked up an 8-6 win against visiting Crescenta Valley in a CIF Southern Section Division V first-round match at Mount San Antonio College.

GLENDALE - With two weeks left in the regular season, the members of the Crescenta Valley High baseball team like their chances to win the Pacific League championship again. With Austin Brines on board and providing a steady bat in the heart of the Falcons' lineup, it's a big reason why they are in a good position. Brines drove in three runs to power Crescenta Valley to an 11-0 home victory against Glendale on Friday in a Pacific League game called in the fifth inning because of the 10-run mercy rule.

With two coaches looking for a change of scenery at Crescenta Valley and Glendale highs, the rival schools examined the possibility of a swap among health teachers who to be manning the pool deck, as well. It came in 1992, shortly after Chris Kaufman had already turned the Crescenta Valley boys' swimming and water polo teams into some of the top programs in the area while also serving as a health instructor. Over at Glendale, Pete Loporchio had spent several years as a health teacher and achieving success with the Nitro boys' water polo and swimming teams.
