A terrific turnaround season for the Falcons boys’ soccer team saw them come from the depths of the Pacific league last year to a spot in the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs. The overachieving Falcons (10-5-6) won their first playoff game of the year, a road game at Hawthorne, 2-0, on Friday, Feb. 21, but faced a much stiffer competition against Sierra Vista (20-2-2) on Wednesday. Though they played their hearts out, defensive holes were their undoing and Sierra Vista beat Crescenta Valley at CV in the second round, 3-2. “We had two problems that happened out there,” said second-year Crescenta Valley Coach Tino Morfin.

Mirjam Swanson GLENDALE -- Definitely two different stories going on at the always intense swim meet between Southern California swimming powers Crescenta Valley and Hart highs. Same score: 99-71. But different results for the hosting Falcons boys' and girls' swim teams in their nonleague meet Friday. The CV girls (5-0) said they entered the meet feeling good about themselves, and they left feeling even better, with a convincing win in tow. Their counterparts on the boys' team (4-1)

With a berth in the Section 2 Major Baseball All-Stars championship on the line and revenge to be had, Crescenta Valley faced off with Quartz Hill on Sunday evening. “They were excited to get them in a rematch,” Crescenta Valley Coach Mike Vinceri said. “They played really, calm solid ball.” At the plate, Scott Vinceri belted a second-inning grand slam that paved the way for CV's 9-4 win over Quartz Hill on Sunday evening at El Dorado Little League. “Scott's grand slam was huge in the sense that it was against their ace pitcher,” Mike Vinceri said.

Erik Boal Peter Lee said following the Pacific League boys' swim final that every meet is a surprise for him and his Crescenta Valley teammates. But when it came to the results of the team competition Friday at Pasadena City College, there were no surprises. After a technical error by Arcadia helped the Falcons capture their 10th straight league championship last year, CV made No. 11 look all too easy, winning nine of 11 events -- including all three relays -- to cruise to a 402.5-322 victory against the Apaches.

LA CRESCENTA - Having played catch-up all afternoon to visiting Hoover High on Wednesday, the Crescenta Valley softball team didn't think twice when the opportunity to take a lead finally presented itself in the bottom of the eighth inning. It would call for some quick thinking, aggressive baserunning and was a bit of a gamble, but the Falcons' guile paid off in an 8-7 Pacific League victory on Hannah Cookson's daring attempt to score from second base on a bases-loaded infield single and subsequent errant throw to the plate.

LA CRESCENTA - All smiles and walking to the team bus, Glendale High softball player Esmeralda Winland looked at teammates Meghan Spencer and Janette Avina and rhetorically asked, "Did we just beat CV?" They absolutely did. For the first time since March 31, 2005, Glendale defeated Crescenta Valley, handily upending their Pacific League rival, 6-0, on Friday at CV. "I feel like I could conquer the world," Winland told her teammates. Her teammates, one with her armed taped with ice and the other still in disbelief, were the leaders of a team that stunned the Falcons and all but knocked CV out of the race for the league championship.

LA CRESCENTA - It's going to take more than just a bad start to slow down the Crescenta Valley boys' basketball team this season. The Falcons proved that in a Falcon Classic pool-play game against Simi Valley Wednesday night. CV turned the ball over on four of its first five possessions and was in a hole early, but climbed out of it without much trouble en route to a 75-53 victory. "I think it just took a little while for us to wake up," said the Falcons' senior power forward Christian Misi, who finished with a game-high 24 points and 11 rebounds.

LA CRESCENTA - The members of the Crescenta Valley High boys' volleyball team looked for a quick start when they faced Glendale in the first of two head-to-head meetings this season. The Falcons got precisely that en route to a dominant 25-12, 25-9, 25-21 Pacific League home win Wednesday afternoon. Crescenta Valley (10-5, 4-2 in league) wasted no time getting started against Glendale (1-7, 1-5). The Falcons raced to an 8-0 lead in the first game and the Nitros didn't hold their first lead until early in the third game.

GLENDALE - There was clearly a difference between both teams when the Crescenta Valley and Hoover high boys' volleyball teams squared off in a Pacific League match Thursday. The senior-laden Falcons are looking to climb the league standings after a fourth-place finish last season, one in which the Tornadoes - who carry a majority of first-year players - did not field a team. CV's experience won out in a three-game sweep, 25-7, 25-12, 25-20, over Hoover, which committed 35 unforced errors in the match.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - Technically speaking, Crescenta Valley High's baseball team assured itself a share of its first Pacific League title since 2008 on Tuesday afternoon with a lopsided win over last-place Muir. But Friday night was truly the Falcons' night. After a league-title drought and a seven-game losing streak against archrival Arcadia, Friday was most assuredly still circled on the Falcons' calendar, having clinched a share of league or not. And thanks to seven brilliant innings from Kyle Murray, plenty of timely hitting and a cavalcade of CV momentum, the Falcons wrapped up the league crown all for themselves with a resounding 7-0 win over the Apaches at Stengel Field.

LA CRESCENTA - It's no secret that Hannah Cookson is among the elite hitters in the Pacific League and likely beyond. Cookson provided further evidence Tuesday, as she hit two home runs and drove in seven runs to power Crescenta Valley to a 10-0 home win against Glendale in a league game called in the fifth inning because of the 10-run mercy rule. “She got that nice, smooth swing,” said Crescenta Valley first-year Coach John Pehar, whose team improved to 6-5, 2-1 in league.

A Crescenta Valley sheriff's deputy received the Congressional Badge of Bravery on Thursday for his quick thinking, despite being unarmed, that saved a woman's life during a stabbing attack. On Nov. 21, 2012, Deputy Tai Plunkett was refueling his car while off duty in Burbank when he observed a couple engaged in a verbal argument in a nearby parking lot. In the presence of their two children, the man suddenly pulled out a large knife and started attacking the woman, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

GLENDALE - Crescenta Valley High's Brian Gadsby turned in a pitching performance that, in hindsight, didn't need much run support. The Falcons offense gave it to him anyway and, coupled with six errors from the La Cañada defense, the defending Pacific League co-champions cruised to a 19-0 season-opening victory on Tuesday evening at Stengel Field. PHOTOS: Crescenta Valley cruises to 19-0 victory in season opener Gadsby, a junior and Crescenta Valley's No. 1 starter this season, struck out 10 batters and gave up two hits while also walking two batters in six strong innings for the Falcons, who will look to him to lead the rotation.

An antibullying program that's being introduced in Glendale Unified schools was in the spotlight Thursday during a discussion on the topic at Crescenta Valley High School. The event, hosted by the CV Alliance, featured Scott Anderle, Glendale Unified's director of student support services, who said teachers regularly issue warnings and call home to parents when students kick, punch, shove or harass others. He also said that a handful of schools have recently started to implement a program in which educators reinforce students' positive behavior and create personalized intervention plans to change the behavior of those who bully.

As Glendale school officials continue to review a plan to offer the district's popular dual-language immersion classes through the 12th grade , they announced this week which high schools would offer the foreign-language courses. At the elementary level, the dual-immersion program has students spend at least half the instructional day speaking and learning in a language other than English. At the high-school level, students would continue studying their chosen language with an intensive class every day. According to the proposal, Hoover High School would offer German, French, Italian and Armenian classes and would offer a Spanish class for students currently enrolled at Franklin and Edison elementary schools.

1) Ronda Rousey becomes UFC women's pioneer - When 2013 was in its dawn, “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey was just under two months away from making history at UFC 157. Three days before 2013 ended, Rousey put a resounding exclamation point on the year with a victory at UFC 168 that was riveting, dramatic, dominant and controversial. In many ways, it was emblematic of Rousey, as she's long been regarded as a complete package; possessing the phenomenal skills and athleticism, beauty and intellect and the brashness to be not just an Ultimate Fighting Championship titlist, but a mainstream star.

After making an appearance in the CIF Southern Section Division I-A playoffs last season with a senior-laden team, the Glendale High girls' basketball team now finds itself partially rebuilding. Glendale Coach Tania Adary saw some progress made during the summer, giving her a better idea of what might be on tap for the Nitros. “We have a new team for the most part and they have a lot of energy,” said Adary, whose team took fourth in the Pacific League before falling in the first round of the playoffs last season.
