Having won its first-ever NCAA Tournament game on Thursday with an upset of third-seeded New Mexico, Harvard's men's basketball team, with starting center Kenyatta Smith out of Flintridge Prep, was looking for another upset and more history. Sixth-seeded Arizona was having nothing of it, though, as the Wildcats came out strong and never relented en route to a dominating 74-51 victory on Saturday in the round of 32 at the EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City. Smith, a former All-Area Boys' Basketball Player of the Year and Glendale News-Press Athlete of the Year after leading Flintridge Prep to its first and only CIF Southern Section title, started at center for the Crimson and scored a team-high 10 points, matching his output against New Mexico.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — The end of one streak of dominance on Thursday night may very well lead to the end of another for the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy volleyball team. A 27-25, 22-25, 24-26, 25-16, 15-10 loss at Sacred Heart to Mission League archrival Harvard-Westlake ended an undefeated home streak dating back to the 2002 regular season. That loss came to the same Wolverines, who now are two wins away from denying the Tologs at least a share of the league title for the first time since 2003.

STUDIO CITY - Whether or not anyone within the Pacific League or CIF Southern Section Division V will stop the Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo team from repeating as CIF Southern Section divisional champion will not be determined for weeks. In the meanwhile, the Falcons had no problems demonstrating that they could play in another stratum, as Division V second-ranked Crescenta Valley was at times dominant in frustrating and ultimately defeating Division III No. 2 Harvard-Westlake, 15-9, on the road Wednesday afternoon.

LOS ANGELES - The idea that sporting events can turn over a matter of inches is as cliche as it comes in the world of sports. But for the Flintridge Sacred Heart soccer team on Monday, a matter of inches may have cost them in a 2-1 Mission League loss against rival and CIF Southern Section Division I second-ranked Harvard-Westlake at Occidental College. Trailing by a goal in the 47th minute, Tologs goalkeeper Dani Garcia appeared to make a clean save on a shot from the Wolverines' Paige Howard, but the ball rebounded off Garcia and, in the eyes of the line judge, just over the end line as Garcia laid out in an attempt to stop the goal.

LA CRESCENTA - While the results didn't necessarily bear out any big changes, home course advantage provided some benefits for the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy and St. Francis High cross-country programs in Thursday afternoon's second Mission League meet at Crescenta Valley Park. The Tologs continued to prove themselves a force within league by finishing runner-up, while a young Golden Knights squad continued to gain valuable training in taking sixth. “It helps to have experience on this course and know what to expect,” Tologs junior Kayla Grahn said.
