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.

For a brief moment back in the late 1920s, Chevy Chase Drive connected the Biltmore resort hotel in Flintridge with the elegant Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. The connection? A bus, a De Luxe Parlor Car Bus. The hilltop resort, first called the Flintridge Hotel, was the brainchild of Frank P. Flint, a retired senator, landowner and real estate magnate, and was designed by noted Southern California architect Myron Hunt, who also designed the Ambassador Hotel. Known as the father of Flintridge, Flint had opened some 1,500 of his acres for development in 1917.

LA CAÑADA - How big an impact the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy softball team will make within the competitive Mission League may very well center on how much the squad treats those contests as anything other than league play. That's because the Tologs continued their strong nonleague run with a 10-5 victory over visiting Maranatha on Thursday afternoon in a game in which Flintridge Sacred Heart scored in five of six innings and took advantage of six Minutemen errors. “The girls played well today and if you would have told me at the beginning of the season that we'd be 8-2, I wouldn't have believed it,” said Flintridge Sacred Heart Coach Kirk Nishiyama, whose team improved to 8-1 in nonleague games this season and 8-2 overall.

A tough season wasn't without rewards for the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team. Tologs senior Dani Garcia was named the Mission League's Most Valuable Goalie, while senior Casey Basso was selected to the league's first team and sophomore Lauren Savo was tabbed a second-teamer on the recently released awards list. “It's surprising, but not surprising, at least when I first heard about it,” Garcia said. “A couple of [Mission League] coaches said they thought I did an amazing job this season and I was honored they said that.

STUDIO CITY - With the core of its team back and a few talented underclassmen on board, it might be difficult to wrestle the Mission League title away from the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy swimming team. The Tologs came into the season having won two straight undefeated league championships with a seventh-place finish in the CIF Southern Section Division I final in Riverside last season. Backed with additional depth, the Tologs figure to be a tough squad for their league opponents to solve.

There's a sense of excitement that the 2014 track and field season could be special in different ways for each of the Crescenta Valley High, Flintridge Prep, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy, Glendale, Holy Family and Hoover girls' teams. Whether it's competing for a league title, advancing deep into the postseason or proving formidable, each local squad is looking to make an impact this season. At Crescenta Valley, the Falcons are hoping to challenge archrival Arcadia for a Pacific League title, as the squads are slated to face each other on April 22. Before that, however, expect Crescenta Valley to show off its depth.

During coach Steve Bergen's current tenure, now entering its fifth season, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy swimming team has made quantum leaps of improvement from year to year, placing 34th in CIF Southern Section Division 1 three years ago, 14th the next and vaulting all the way to seventh last season. Perhaps just as impressive has been the Tologs' return to sustained preeminence in the elite Mission League, where they are coming off back-to-back championships. With both youth and experience on its side, the renaissance is primed to roll on, as Sacred Heart would appear to have enough depth and star power on its roster to not only sustain its current footing, but perhaps push its way back into the running for its first Division 1 title since 2007 over the next couple of seasons.

Following a fifth-place finish in the ultra-competitive Mission League, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy basketball team found itself in unchartered territory. None of the Tologs had taken part in a playoff game. That changed Thursday night, when Flintridge Sacred Heart met host Twentynine Palms in a CIF Southern Section Division IV-AA first-round contest. Unfortunately for Flintridge Sacred Heart, it's lack of postseason experience showed in a season-ending 73-47 defeat. “We didn't quite have all the horses,” said Flintridge Sacred Heart second-year Coach Ty Buxman, whose team finished 7-20.
