BURBANK - Looking to preserve a one-goal lead in the waning moments, Elizabeth Hinckley had an inkling she would need to make one more save. It came with no margin for error. Once the ball struck the hands of the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls' water polo goalkeeper and the final horn sounded, Hinckley breathed a sigh of relief. “I knew I would have to make one more stop,” said Hinckley, who finished with 14 saves overall to spark visiting Flintridge Sacred Heart to a 5-4 nonleague victory against Burroughs on Friday afternoon.

LOS ANGELES - Somewhere between content and unsatisfied, and sometimes both, were the feelings of Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls' soccer Coach Cesar Hidalgo on Thursday evening. His Tologs continued their strong start to the season, winning their third nonleague contest without a setback, 1-0, versus host Marlborough of Los Angeles at Occidental College. Yet, the score and Flintridge Sacred Heart's execution left something to be desired, at least according to Hidalgo. “I'm satisfied with the game, but I'm unsatisfied with the effort and play,” said Hidalgo, whose Tologs (3-0)

The chase for a CIF Southern Section girls' volleyball championship has begun, as the postseason pairings were released Saturday morning, with wild-card playoff action beginning Saturday night. Mission League co-champion Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy received the highest local bid, as the Tologs (23-4) were given the fourth seed in Division I-AA. Yet, the seed wasn't exactly a welcomed sight. “Nothing against the teams in the lower bracket, but we're in the upper bracket and that just seems like a much tougher bracket,” said Flintridge Sacred Heart Coach Ernest Banaag, whose team won its first league title since 2006.

When the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team emerged as one of the top-10 teams in the nation two years ago, it was no surprise the Tologs - including their multi-talented defender Kayla Mills - hauled in a host of honors. Highest among them for Mills was All-American status, which she received again this past season from the Elite Soccer Report. Her second-team selection is the third accolade Sacred Heart's senior leader has added to her resume from this past season. "I am always surprised to receive such high awards like this," Mills said.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan FLINTRIDGE SACRED HEART ACADEMY -- The Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls' basketball team knew its handicap on the hardwood Monday: turnovers. As much as the Tologs try, they can't avoid it. Once again, turnovers haunted them in a nonleague loss to Immaculate Heart. The Pandas forced 30 turnovers as they defeated the Tologs, 64-45, at Flintridge Sacred Heart. "Our turnovers killed us," said Flintridge Sacred Heart Coach Ron Sarber, whose team dropped to 1-2. "We got a little lazy on defense in the third quarter."

It was five years ago when Kirsten Vose decided to take up swimming. She'd always been a “water person” and quickly took to racing. Fast forward a few years and Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy swim Coach Steve Bergen was hearing rumors that a “special kid” was joining the team. That unique talent was Vose, who started her freshman year with the Tologs in 2012. “I don't know exactly why I love [swimming] so much, but there's just something about it,” Vose said. “I guess just the racing is fun. … You can always be better than you were before; if you put in the effort, you will get better.” Two years later, Vose has demonstrated her natural ability by carrying Sacred Heart to consecutive outright Mission League titles and a pair of individual wins in CIF Southern Section Division I events.

There was a time, not long ago, that the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy volleyball team was not only one of the best within the San Gabriel Valley, but one of the stronger programs in all of Southern California. That distinction was cultivated on the back of Mission League championships, 20-win seasons and victories versus strong teams, both locally and throughout the Southland. “When I came here, I was definitely aware of the rich tradition at Flintridge Sacred Heart,” Tologs second-year Coach Ernest Banaag said.

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.

LA CAÑADA - Carlos Ponce wasn't discouraged after the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy water polo team suffered its second consecutive Mission League defeat Thursday. What left the Flintridge Sacred Heart coach frustrated was that the Tologs hit the post or crossbar six times in the first half in a home match against Louisville. Still, there's no reason for Ponce to sound the alarm. "There's a lot we came take from this game," Ponce said after Flintridge Sacred heart suffered a 6-2 defeat.
