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.

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.

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.
