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.

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.

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.
