LOS ANGELES - Though half the Mission League season remains, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy's soccer team knew full well the magnitude of Friday night's game against visiting Chaminade. Thus, when all was said and done, the Tologs realized just how important their victory was after goals by Savannah Viola, Kayla Mills and Laura Thompson propelled them to a 3-1 win over the Eagles at Occidental College. “It was a big, big win,” Viola said. “We need it. We definitely needed to pick up our heads and get our confidence going and this was the game that triggered that.” Viola's goal, coming in just the third minute, served as the quick start the Tologs needed.

Charles Rich Though expectations will always remain high for the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy volleyball team, sometimes it's best to go back to the basics. In one of those rare instances, the Tologs did just that as they focused their practices on hitting and digging. Hitting and digging proved to be Flintridge Sacred Heart's strongest assets in its 25-20, 25-19, 20-25, 25-20 nonleague victory against visiting Arcadia on Monday night. -- BOX SCORE -- -- Arcadia 20 19 20 20 Flint.

The Mission League is one of the most respected girls' soccer leagues in Southern California, so the fact that eight of Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy's players were recognized on the all-league roster says something about the Tologs' reputation. The 2004-05 Tologs set a school record with 16 victories and finished second in league, which was the highest finish in program history. But despite finishing behind Harvard-Westlake in the league standings, the Tologs had the league's Most Valuable Player and Most Valuable Defensive Player.

From Staff Reports CIF shake-up: Two weeks, three ranked teams defeated. That was the resume put forth by La Canada's girls' soccer team the last two weeks. It finally paid off this week with a ranking of its own, notching eighth in the CIF Southern Section Division IV poll. Monrovia, which was ranked first when the Spartans defeated it, dropped to ninth, while the previously ninth-ranked South Pasadena squad, which the Spartans also beat, dropped out of the rankings all together.

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 LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE -- Don't ever say that the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls' volleyball team isn't a gracious host. After agreeing to move their CIF Southern Section Division IVAA second-round playoff match against L.A. Baptist up two hours in order to accomodate their opponent's request to attend a banquet later Thursday evening, the Tologs also did their part to make sure their guest arrived on time. Flintridge Sacred Heart needed just 53 minutes to dispatch of the visiting Knights, 15-4, 15-1, 15-7, in a match that was highlighted by Tolog Coach Nancy Tinkham inhaling half the helium in one of the decoratory balloons and calling a timeout in the third game to talk to her team.

Erik Boal Just moments after their Mission League showdown with host North Hollywood Harvard-Westlake, the members of the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team gathered in a semicircle facing co-Coaches Kathy Desmond and Frank Pace. Frustration, disappointment, and, in some cases, disgust, filled the faces of the Tolog players who again proved their worth against one of the league's elite squads, only to fall short -- yet again. Despite controlling the flow of play in the first half and holding Harvard-Westlake's up-tempo attack in check for the majority of Saturday's match, Flintridge Sacred Heart found itself searching for answers after its second straight 1-0 loss.

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.

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.
