GLENDALE — In the afterglow of winning the program’s first CIF championship, the members of the Crescenta Valley High boys’ water polo squad will get set for another first: Competing in the Masters Tournament. The Falcons, who spent the past couple of days celebrating and receiving congratulations from fellow classmates following a 10-9 victory against top-seeded Rio Mesa in the CIF Southern Section Division VI title match on Saturday, learned Monday from the CIF office that they had been invited to take part in the prestigious tournament.

LAKE FOREST - On its way to the CIF Southern Section Division I-A semifinals, the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team had overcome bad shooting nights a number of times. Whether it was defense that picked them up or they got hot in the second half, the Falcons seemed to have a knack for doing so. But after falling behind by double digits early in a road semifinal game against top-seeded El Toro, that uncanny ability was nowhere to be found in a 68-38 loss. “We hit the double whammy where our offense was absolutely horrible, as far as being able to make stops, and defensively we couldn't contain them,” said CV Coach Shawn Zargarian, whose team shot 21 percent (12 of 58)

In its first two playoff games, the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team has survived by finishing games strong, but the Falcons' overall job is far from finished. Fourth-seeded Crescenta Valley (25-4) will look to extend its CIF Southern Section Division 1-A postseason run when it hosts No. 5 seed El Toro (22-8) at 7 p.m. today in the quarterfinal round, the first time the Falcons have made it this far since 2000. "We've been drawing a great crowd at home," Falcons Coach Shawn Zargarian said.

In reaching the CIF Southern Section Division I-A semifinal game for the second straight season, Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball Coach Shawn Zargarian reflected on his team's latest accomplishment. Having lost 80% of last season's starting lineup, it appeared to be a tall order for the Falcons to make another deep playoff run. “I was telling the players that I couldn't be more proud in terms of how far they have come,” Zargarian said. “We lost a lot of solid players, but there's just something special about this team and what they've been able to get done this year.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan LAKE FOREST -- For the first 14 minutes, the La Canada High boys' water polo team fought, played to near perfection and answered every challenge El Toro threw at the Spartans. But at halftime, Charger Coach Don Stoll, in his 21st season with the Chargers -- ranked No. 3 in CIF Southern Section Division I -- did what he does best. He adjusted several defensive and offensive schemes in preparation for the second half of his team's second nonleague game of the season.

Saro Sarkisian MISSION VIEJO -- Both teams walked off the field at Trabuco Hills High with dirt on their uniforms and looks of exhaustion on their faces. It was clear a battle had taken place. The Crescenta Valley and El Toro girls' soccer teams battled for more than 120 minutes and, after regulation play and four overtime periods, the score remained tied at 3, meaning the match would be decided on penalty kicks. After remaining tied with three goals apiece on penalty kicks, the Falcons outscored the Chargers, 3-0, in the next set of kicks to advance to the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Division II playoffs.

Your July 12, 2001 editorial, "Proposed bus funds shows Schiff cares," praises our local legislator for working outside of the regional transportation planning system (SCAG) that democratically prioritizes allocation of funds for our mass transit and highway needs. May I suggest that an alternate editorial headline could read "Schiff brings the pork to Glendale by bus." SCAG was established so our region's local governments could jointly solve our area's transportation needs.

Flying elbows and fists to the side of the face or the ribs — whether intentional or not — are part of the rugged side of water polo. From the bleachers, it’s rarely detected. Sometimes, even an official might miss one or two incidents. In the pool, the athletes absorb more than their share of abuse during a match. For Gor Asryan, it’s a sign that he’s getting somewhere while driving to the net or playing defense for Glendale High. “You get elbows and fists coming into you all the time, so that’s part of the game,” said Asryan, a junior hole/set who scored 126 goals last season for the Nitros.

GLENDALE — Through the first two rounds of the CIF Southern Section Division I playoffs, the St. Francis High and Long Beach Jordan boys’ soccer teams have been accustomed to playing tight matches. It’s a safe bet to expect more of the same today when St. Francis (15-5-4) and Jordan (10-6-2) meet in a quarterfinal match at 3 p.m. at Jordan. “I think it’s got something to do with the depth of our two leagues,” St. Francis Coach Glen Appels said.

GLENDALE — Just as much as winning Pacific League titles, it has become tradition for the Crescenta Valley High baseball team to venture south to Orange County come playoff time. For the fourth straight season, the Falcons will do just that, as they travel to face Sea View League champion El Toro in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division II playoffs today at 3:15 p.m. “It’s like second nature,” said Falcons senior shortstop Kris Kauppila of making the trip.
