Of all the basketball skills that Molly Roach possesses, being a great teammate might just stand out the most. Which is saying something, considering the Crescenta Valley High senior is currently her team's most complete player, No. 1 offensive option and leading scorer. "I couldn't imagine playing without Molly on the court," says teammate and friend since seventh grade Kayla Hornor. "She is such a huge influence and sparkplug to keep us going." It is Roach's commitment and leadership that has propelled the resurgent Falcons to a complete 180 from last season's second-to-last-place Pacific League finish.

GLENDALE - A season ago, the Burbank High baseball team and the Crescenta Valley High baseball team were neck-and-neck atop the standings and eventually shared the Pacific League crown. But a year later, with Burbank relying on an inexperienced lineup after graduating 14 seniors, Crescenta Valley looks as if it has the upper hand. The Falcons bested the young Bulldogs on Friday night at Stengel Field, 4-1. “Beating every team will make us feel good,” Crescenta Valley senior Michael Russo said.

To look at the body of work compiled by the Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo team this past season is to grab a snapshot of another successful campaign for the area's top program. The Falcons finished 24-7, captured a fifth straight Pacific League championship and advanced to the semifinals of the CIF Southern Section Division V playoffs for a fourth consecutive season. Such success has become consistent and expected at a program that rose to prominence under coach Pete Loporchio and reached its pinnacle with Brent Danna at the helm.

PASADENA - Russell Caletena got to Brookside Golf Course No. 2 aware the conditions of the greens might not be too favorable for him leading up to Thursday's Pacific League golf match. Earlier in the week, the course underwent a round of aerification, a type of preventative maintenance that leaves small holes on the course designed to loosen soil. Caletena, a sophomore at Glendale, didn't seem to mind the conditions all that much. Caletena shot an even-par 70 to earn medalist honors in a match won by Crescenta Valley.

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.

GLENDALE - Though the Pacific League baseball season is still in its infant stages, it has been quite some time since Glendale High was ahead of Crescenta Valley in the league standings. Such was the case Tuesday afternoon when the Nitros hosted the Falcons with a new coach, a field looking as good as it has in years and crowded stands. PHOTOS: CV boys' baseball shuts down Glendale But while Tuesday was very much emblematic of how much things are changing for the Nitros, the day belonged to Crescenta Valley and junior starting pitcher Jimmy Smiley.

BURBANK - With both the Burroughs High and Crescenta Valley baseball teams, squads that had made the playoffs a season earlier, having opened up Pacific League play with losses to teams that had finished outside of the top four in league last year, perhaps Friday afternoon's league showdown took on even more importance. For the Falcons, at least, that was the mindset. And, behind some early offense and solid pitching, Crescenta Valley staved off host Burroughs for a 4-1 league victory.

“Everyone dies with secrets, why can't I?” Convalescing at home after a fall, Lilith Fischer, age 87, is snappish with her son on the phone, rude to her in-home aide and determined to keep the memories of her youth buried. A ghost from her past, however, has other ideas. Imaginative in the telling and deeply felt, “The Last Act of Lilka Kadison,” a West Coast premiere presented by the Falcon Theatre in association with Chicago's Tony Award-winning Lookingglass Theatre Company, is a quiet celebration of the life-affirming power of creativity and human connection.

LA CRESCENTA - For a moment, albeit a brief one, it looked as if the Crescenta Valley High boys' volleyball team's undefeated season and 12-match winning streak were in jeopardy. Hosting Glendale in a Pacific League match on Wednesday afternoon, the Falcons trailed by seven points midway through the first game, plagued by miscommunication and other miscues. “I don't know,” Falcons Coach John Nelson said of the sluggish start. “We were having a hard time getting up to speed.” Eventually, they caught up enough to sweep the visiting Nitros, 26-24, 25-17, 25-17.

LA CRESCENTA - After jumping out of the gates in impressive fashion and winning its first four Pacific League matches, the Crescenta Valley High boys' tennis team has dropped its last two to foes that appear to be vying for a title, along with the Falcons. The common denominator of the two defeats - to Hoover on March 11 and most recently, Arcadia, at home on Tuesday afternoon - has been Crescenta Valley's inability to stay with their opponent in the singles bracket. The Falcons, similarly to their match with the Tornadoes, garnered just two wins in singles play, and despite getting five out of nine in doubles, fell to the first-place and undefeated Apaches, 11-7.
