Edgar Melik-Stepanyan Cerritos High boys' water polo Coach Roy Contreras wasn't going to fool himself or mislead his players. The Dons had the near-impossible task of facing La Canada in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs and Contreras understood that defeating the Spartans was probably too much to ask from his young team. La Canada easily dismantled Cerritos in the first half to take a eight-goal lead before inserting its reserves for the second half.

Charles Rich The La Canada High boys' water polo team accepted the top seed when the CIF Southern Section Division III playoff pairings were released Monday in Los Alamitos. Now, the Spartans are weighing the pros and cons of being the No. 1 squad. The Spartans had that honor last year, and it didn't do them much good after they fell to Peninsula in a semifinal match. This time, Naeve said La Canada (19-9) will be more prepared. The Spartans, who won the Rio Hondo League crown, will face Muir or Burroughs in a first-round match at 4 p.m. Friday at Pasadena City College.

Charles Rich In between teaching his students how to write an essay and discussing factual data on World War I, Jan Sakonju also managed to spend time manning the phone lines. It wasn't easy for Sakonju, who is a history teacher and the boys' water polo coach at Crescenta Valley High, but he managed to find a last-minute site for the Falcons to play their CIF Southern Section Division III first-round match against Cerritos on Friday. CV received three goals each from Nick Trimis, Chris Sherman and Austin Brown to earn a 13-7 win against Cerritos at Burroughs High.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan Larry Naeve expected valiant and productive efforts, but the La Canada High girls' water polo coach got lackluster and ineffective performances from his players. Vying to make their first trip to the CIF Southern Section Division III semifinals in program history, the Spartans stayed with second-seeded Chino Hills Ayala for all of about five minutes before the Bulldogs put on a clinic and ran away with an 11-1 quarterfinal victory Saturday at Pasadena City College.

Mirjam Swanson GLENDALE -- Somebody, please, challenge this team. Obviously opponents didn't enjoy it much. But, at this point, even the members of the No. 2-seeded Hoover boys' tennis team are fed up with breezing through playoff matches against overmatched Montebello Schurr and Paramount. Breezing through like, well, Tornadoes. Hoover has pulled off back-to-back 18-0 shutouts, victories in which the entire roster was able to contribute. It might not be "some kind of record", as freshman No. 2 singles player Sam Tadevosian concluded, but it is true that no other team in the CIF Southern Section Division I draw has twice recorded the same lopsided results thus far. The only other shutouts belonged to Hoover's opponent today, Diamond Bar, which beat Fontana A.B. Miller, 18-0, in the first round, Anaheim Esperanza, which shut down Redlands in the second round, Rolling Hills Estates Peninsula, which blanked Santa Ana in the first, and Santa Monica, which didn't allow a set to Pico Rivera El Rancho in the first.
