Grant Gordon The only thing certain about a 15-year-old La Canada Flintridge girl's recent death is that it has hit the community hard. Marisa Lupica died suddenly and mysteriously Saturday morning. Her teachers and classmates learned about the Flintridge Sacred Heart sophomore's death Monday. "We started the day on Monday with a beautiful prayer service," Flintridge Sacred Heart Vice Principal Katy Sadler said. "[After that, there was] little in the way of school."

Grant Gordon Not until the final point touched the floor was Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy Coach Nancy Tinkham able to breath easy. "It was definitely a sigh of relief tonight," said the Tologs' girls' volleyball coach. Nobody expected visiting Mayfield High to give the host Tologs much of a battle on Tuesday night in the opening round of the CIF Southern Section Division IVAA playoffs, but, in the end, Flintridge Sacred Heart was happy to survive.

Erik Boal In order to accomplish the goal of winning CIF Southern Section girls' volleyball titles in three consecutive decades, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy must beat the team that has ended its postseason run the past three years. The second-seeded Tologs (20-4) will face top-seeded L.A. Marymount (28-4) in the Division IVAA final at 7 tonight at Cypress College Gym I with their sights set on capturing the program's first CIF crown since 1997 and the fifth in school history.

Scott Melesky Opponents of the Glendale Big League All-Star Softball team probably don't want any part of pitcher Meghann Muirhead this summer. Her 2-0 record and 0.00 earned-run average during the Little League Division 3 Tournament are just some of the reasons why. The left-hander has been able to put up impressive numbers thanks to a diverse array of pitches, which includes a biting curveball and a tricky change-up. But things didn't always seem this easy for the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy senior.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan Holy Family girls' basketball Coach Matthan Jackson didn't hide from the fact his team doesn't run much of an offensive set. It's no secret that the Gaels like to play a fast-paced game that relies on forcing turnovers to create easy baskets. But when Holy Family faces a patient team that executes an offense and plays steady defense, Jackson's team runs straight into the ground. Such was the case Thursday night against host Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy.

Erik Boal GLENDALE -- Many of them have traveled all over Southern California and, in some cases, as far as the southeastern United States. They've won league crowns, prestigious invitationals and age-group national titles. But as impressive as the resumes are for a number of local divers, none of that will matter when today's competition commences. Because for three hours and 11 dives, nine local athletes will have to put forth their best efforts on either the one- or three-meter springboard at the CIF Southern Section final in order to distance themselves from the competition.

From Staff Reports A most productive practice: Ted Grissom didn't like the direction his La Canada High girls' volleyball team was headed. And neither did his players. After wins against CIF Southern Section ranked opponents San Pedro Mary Star of the Sea and Redondo Union -- along with a hard-fought, four-game loss to national-power Long Beach Wilson -- to open the season, the Spartans (4-3) were swept by Long Beach Millikan and Sherman Oaks Notre Dame, which prompted a much-needed team discussion during Wednesday's practice.

Charles Rich On a scale from 1 to 10, the members of the La Canada High girls' cross-country team will look to be a 10. That's in attempting to record a 10th consecutive undefeated Rio Hondo League title this season. Don't bother counting them out of the picture because the Spartans appear primed to accomplish that feat. Don't get La Canada Coach Tony Haynes wrong. There will be enough pressure packed squarely on the shoulders of his squad. "It's an incredible streak that we are on," said Haynes, who was replaced by Andy DiConti last year after Haynes coached the previous eight seasons.
