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 - 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.

ARCADIA - What first started as a league showdown and a battle on the diamond turned into a rainy mess and an ultimate search for a rule book and league constitution.
