GLENDALE ? Annie Beltran and Kathy Desmond wanted to stop. Their feet and bodies told them to. But their hearts would not allow them to take a break in Sunday's 21st L.A. Marathon. Beltran and Desmond, soccer coaches at Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy, were running in honor of Jenna Johnson and Jessica Hanson, both of whom were linked to the Tolog soccer family.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Sometimes, what happens before a match can be as important as the contest itself. The Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls’ soccer team had four starters arrive 45 minutes late to Friday’s Mission League showdown against Chaminade. That prompted co-coaches Frank Pace and Kathy Desmond to bench all four athletes, knowing that the match was a crucial test in the Tologs’ quest to win a second consecutive Mission League title. Katie Johnson, Breeana Koemans, Alexa Montgomery and Tera Trujillo sat on the bench for the first half before being inserted into the second half.

GLENDALE — The CIF Southern Section and Southern California Regional playoffs held some of the toughest matches the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team played all season. The nonleague portion of the Tologs' season was no cakewalk either. But the month-long stretch of Mission League games in which the Tologs suffered their only regular-season loss, recorded their lone tie and won four matches by one goal or less, was likely as challenging as any this season. And, by the end of a season packed with triumphs, the achievement of winning the league title for the second time in three seasons stood as tall as any. "Over a 10-game [league]

For the decorated Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team, that role belongs to Tera Trujillo. "She's probably as tough and as competitive a kid as we've ever had," Sacred Heart co-Coach Frank Pace says of the junior midfielder/defender. "She's got what we call a warrior mentality.

With the season seemingly at its ending point, hope was in short supply for the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team when a familiar foe had thoroughly outplayed the host Tologs to the tune of a two-goal halftime lead. No team all season had come close to dominating the Tologs as Saugus had during the first half of the CIF Southern Section Division II quarterfinals. And, despite her overwhelming talents and stature on the team, junior defender Natalie Zeenni always shied away from a leadership role.

DOWNEY — There was a feeling-out period for both teams to begin Friday night’s CIF Southern California Regional Championships Division III girls’ soccer title game between Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy and Francis Parker. But there was nothing ginger or tentative about the 63 minutes of physical, grinding soccer that followed the game’s only three goals scored. At times simply a stalemate between Sacred Heart’s uncharacteristic, long-kicking, frenetic style and Francis Parker’s methodical, bruising approach, the latter 3/4 of the match saw the Tologs toughen up and hang on for a 2-1 victory at Warren High in Downey, clinching the first-ever regional crown in program history.
