ARCADIA ? For the past few seasons, the Flintridge Prep baseball team has been fully aware that Rio Hondo Prep likes to play small ball. With virtually all of the teams in the Prep League jockeying for playoff berths, small ball couldn?t have come at a worse time for the Rebels during their league contest against the host Kares on Saturday afternoon. Flintridge Prep saw Rio Hondo Prep?s Jason Sterris score the winning run when he swiped home plate with two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning to help the Kares post a 3-2 come-from-behind victory.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — For one elongated stretch, the Flintridge Prep boys' basketball team hardly looked like a league champion. Fortunately for the Rebels, they eventually remembered in a nick of time what it takes to defend their league supremacy. Flintridge Prep overcame a horrific first-quarter offensive display and then got 22 second-half points from Aaron Fried on Tuesday night to post a come-from-behind 55-54 home victory against Rio Hondo Prep in a Prep League opener for both squads.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — The numbers don’t come close to anything the members of the Flintridge Prep baseball team had imagined. Through 16 games this season, the Flintridge Prep pitching staff has yielded 139 runs. Granted, most of the starters are underclassmen and have a dearth of experience, so Flintridge Prep Coach Buzz Cook is trying to remain patient. “That’s a lot of runs to give up,” Cook said after Flintridge Prep suffered an 18-14 Prep League loss to visiting Rio Hondo Prep on Friday afternoon at the Glendale Sports Complex.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — From the first Rio Hondo Prep batter of the game she faced to the second, Flintridge Prep pitcher Denise Van Der Goot became a completely different pitcher — in approach and on the score sheet. “I think I started off the game a little unfocused,” Van Der Goot said. “After the first girl got a hit, I realized I had to buckle down.” After relinquishing a leadoff double to Kallie Bray to begin Thursday afternoon’s Prep League tilt, Van Der Goot buckled down to the tune of a 13-strikeout performance in which she did not allow another hit in propelling the host Rebels to a 4-0 win against the Kares.

In its Prep League opener, the Flintridge Prep girls' basketball team forced 35 turnovers and limited host Rio Hondo Prep to just 26.3% shooting from the field. But even in such a dominating performance, the Rebel head coach still saw plenty of room for improvement, which explains why Flintridge Prep was only a 52-37 winner.

MONROVIA - Heading into Saturday afternoon's Rio Hondo League individual wrestling finals, there was no doubt that the Hoover High wrestling program was already enjoying its greatest season ever in its fledgling three-year existence. Yet, the Tornadoes had even more to celebrate at Monrovia High, as the squad advanced five wrestlers into divisional championship bouts, won two titles and qualified all 10 of their varsity wrestlers to the first round of the CIF Southern Section Individual playoffs.

GLENDALE - Five bouts into their Rio Hondo League wrestling match and the narrative looked somewhat familiar for the Hoover High wrestling team. The fledgling program in its third year of existence had fallen behind 23 points to visiting South Pasadena and appeared destined for a blowout. Well, the rout was a reality, but in a different way than in past years. The Tornadoes won nine of their final 11 matches and scored 42 of the last 45 points in launching a massive rally and defeating the Tigers, 42-26, on Thursday.

ARCADIA - This girls' volleyball season, Glendale High finished fifth in the Pacific League, denying it one of the league's four automatic playoff berths, but the CIF Southern Section saw fit to award the Nitros a spot in the Division IIA playoffs as an at-large entry. So, the Nitros, armed with their first winning record of this century, went into their wild-card match at the Truman B. Stivers Center against Rio Hondo Prep and got to within one point of advancing. But the host Kares scored the last five points of the final game to escape with the victory 25-18, 22-25, 21-25, 25-20, 16-14.

After the Glendale High girls' volleyball team recorded its first winning season since the 1990s, co-coach Jennifer Vo briefly mulled over if the program's latest body of work in the regular season would warrant possible playoff consideration. Glendale went 11-9 and 7-7 in the Pacific League for fifth place. While the top four teams from the Pacific League automatically qualify for the playoffs, Vo reviewed several key factors that she figured might work in the Nitros' favor in an effort to extend their season.

ARCADIA - For the first quarter of Friday night's game against Rio Hondo Prep, the members of the Flintridge Prep football team looked noticeably rejuvenated. Throughout most of the season, the Rebels have struggled in the opening quarter. That wasn't the case while matched against an opponent that's won two straight CIF Southern Section championships. Flintridge Prep scored a pair of first-quarter touchdowns, but couldn't sustain the momentum the remainder of the way in a 63-22 Prep League road loss against powerhouse Rio Hondo Prep.

On a day in which four separate proposals affecting the Pacific League were considered and a few more including the Rio Hondo League were voted upon, weeks of speculation gave way to the status quo as none of the 14 schools that comprise either league were directly impacted.

MONROVIA - Hoover High's inaugural season in the Rio Hondo League was described as a roller-coaster ride by wrestling coach Mark Bitetti. The Tornadoes won their first league dual against St. Paul, but dropped the next four en route to finishing fifth in the six-team league as a team. Things started moving in the right direction again for Hoover at its first taste of the league's individual finals Saturday at Santa Fe Middle School in Monrovia. Three Hoover wrestlers - Arthur Ghukasyan, Sebastian Ghauliance and Gio Martinez - advanced to the championship round of their respective weight classes, but it was Martinez who brought home the Tornadoes first-ever individual league title by pinning St. Paul's Mark Millan 1:05 into the second period of the 220-pound match.
