GLENDALE — Young Tae Seo stepped up and stole the spotlight at the CIF Masters Meet last season, winning a pair of individual events. Seo will look for a similar effort when he participates in the meet this year, which will begin at 5 p.m. today at the William Woollett Jr. Aquatic Center in Irvine. Seo, a sophomore on the Crescenta Valley High boys' swimming team, will attempt to repeat as the champion in the 200-yard individual medley, an event in which he's the top seed (1:48.38)

PASADENA — Holding down the top ranking in the CIF Southern Section Division V poll might mean something in the grand scheme of things for the Crescenta Valley High boys' water polo team. Having to prove it is an entirely different matter. The Falcons, who moved up a division after winning a Division VI crown in 2008 and advancing to the semifinals last season, have taken on all challengers during the first part of the season. They faced their biggest test Tuesday afternoon during a nonleague match against second-ranked La Serna at Pasadena City College.

LA CRESCENTA — While the two schools are no longer in the same division, nor in the same league or even city, the Crescenta Valley High boys' swimming team has maintained a healthy rivalry with Hart over the years. The Falcons welcomed the CIF Southern Section Division I stalwart Indians onto their pool deck Thursday afternoon for the latest installment of their nonleague saga and Crescenta Valley showed that despite its residence in Division II, it is more than up to competing with Hart, pulling out a 99-71 victory.

LA CRESCENTA — If Tuesday's Pacific League-opening 15-8 win over Burroughs was any indication, the reserve members of the Crescenta Valley High boys' water polo team will get ample opportunity to learn on the job this season. But when you've got a starting lineup as dangerous as the Falcons', there's room for a little trial and error. Alan Dearman scored three goals and Josh Chi and Louis Wojciechowski added two apiece to pace Crescenta Valley to a 10-0 lead by the 5:21 mark of the second quarter, effectively ending any shot the Indians might have had of an upset of the defending league champions, who are currently ranked No. 1 in CIF Southern Section Division V. "We just wanted to come out and try as hard as we could to start out really strong," Dearman said.

PASADENA — Neither team made a move to run away with the game early when the boys' water polo teams from Crescenta Valley High and El Segundo met at Pasadena City College on Thursday afternoon, but the Falcons were well on their way to a win by the second half. While Crescenta Valley's offense was clicking just fine as the match went on, the Eagles never could get anything going against a strong defensive effort and effective counter from the Falcons, who posted an 11-4 nonleague win. "We wanted to pressure them on the counter-attack and, for a while, they did a good job of keeping up with us, trying to match our speed," said Crescenta Valley Coach Jan Sakonju, whose team was led by three goals apiece from Alan Dearman and Andrew De Jong.

PASADENA — Defense has always been the focal point of Crescenta Valley High's boys' water polo success. Thursday afternoon's performance was a tribute to that and a masterpiece unto itself. Having relinquished an early one-goal deficit, Crescenta Valley finally got its offense going, while its defense was simply unrelenting in holding Hoover scoreless over the final 26 minutes 28 seconds of a statement-making 13-1 Pacific League victory at Pasadena City College. Just as impressive as holding Hoover to one goal was holding the Tornadoes' Hakop Kaplanyan, the reigning All-Area Boys' Water Polo Player of the Year after scoring a state record 229 goals last season, without a score.

GLENDALE — For the most part, the first phase of the Crescenta Valley High boys' swimming team's mission to capture the CIF Southern Section Division II championship went according to plan, as the Falcons dominated their major events in the division preliminaries at Belmont Plaza pool in Long Beach on Friday. Needing top-eight finishes to advance to championship heats at today's finals at Belmont Plaza pool, all but one of Crescenta Valley's top seeded individuals and relays held true to form, coming out with wins, and in two cases, Division II records.

GLENDALE — No one can accuse the Crescenta Valley High boys' swimming team of resting on its laurels. After finishing runner-up behind Oaks Christian in the CIF Southern Section Division II Swimming and Diving Championships last season, the Falcons have made no secret of their desire to take one more step up the ladder in 2011. With even more depth and star power than they had last year, the Falcons are an odds-on favorite to do just that, carrying a host of top-seeded swimmers into the Division II preliminaries at Belmont Plaza pool in Long Beach on Friday where they will aim to push as many as possible through to the finals on Saturday.

ARCADIA — Their methods differed distinctly, but the end result was the same for the boys' and girls' swimming teams from Crescenta Valley High on Wednesday — a second straight dual-meet sweep of previously league-unbeaten archrival Arcadia in the Pacific League dual-meet finale. In clinching at least a share of the league crown for the fourth year in a row, the Falcons girls took first place in just two individual events and a relay, but squeezed enough points out of the remaining events via second- and third-place finishes to claim a 94-76 win. "We have a really deep team and people were racing for more than just first place," Crescenta Valley's Adrienne Ingalla said.
