Charles Rich GLENDALE -- The Village Christian baseball team couldn't capture a second consecutive Alpha League title, but fared well among representing the 2001 all-league team. The Crusaders, who finished second in league behind L.A. Baptist and were eliminated in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division V playoffs by Downey Calvary Chapel after advancing to the semifinals last season, had three players make the first team and two to the second squad.

GLENDALE — Just like that, Jessica Ferri pitched herself to the top of the Mission League ladder. Though the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy junior softball hurler and her teammates didn’t qualify for the CIF Southern Section Division IV playoffs this season, Ferri proved she could handle the workload against quality teams in the formidable league. Ferri proved herself in a big way, as she was named the league’s co-pitcher of the year with sophomore Lindsey Webster of Alemany.

This is the fourth of six consecutive player profiles on football players from area teams leading up to the annual “Football Forecast.” It was just about a year ago that a novel concept was being thrown around at the Glendale High football team’s late summer practices. Then incoming Coach Edgar Torosyan was proposing to do something that had not been associated with the Nitros in recent years — throw the football. For a variety of reasons, the Nitros’ air attack never got off the ground last season.

GLENDALE - Though the Pacific League baseball season is still in its infant stages, it has been quite some time since Glendale High was ahead of Crescenta Valley in the league standings. Such was the case Tuesday afternoon when the Nitros hosted the Falcons with a new coach, a field looking as good as it has in years and crowded stands. PHOTOS: CV boys' baseball shuts down Glendale But while Tuesday was very much emblematic of how much things are changing for the Nitros, the day belonged to Crescenta Valley and junior starting pitcher Jimmy Smiley.

LA CAÑADA - A laid back afternoon produced three unexpected results for the Flintridge Prep track and field program at the team's Prep League cluster meet Thursday afternoon at La Cañada High. Upstart league rival Pasadena Poly upset the Rebels in both the boys' and girls' competitions, 79-56 and 83-70, respectively, on a day in which Flintridge Prep junior Gareth Weiss set the school's all-time record in the pole vault. “Sometimes it's actually a good thing to lose and I really hope this serves as motivation to the team, particularly to the younger athletes who haven't experienced defeat,” Rebels Coach Nick Ponticello said.

Throughout the last few seasons, the Crescenta Valley High and La Cañada boys' soccer teams have fielded their share of prolific athletes. That is one of the reasons why both programs have enjoyed their share of success, along with being among the most successful in the area. That proved to be the case once again this season, as Crescenta Valley's Justin Wright and Austin Gartside of La Cañada picked up All-CIF first-team recognition Monday. Wright and Gartside earned spots on the Division III and V teams, respectively, after the CIF Southern Section Office unveiled first-team honorees from the seven divisions.

GLENDALE - Just four games into the 2014 season, Crescenta Valley High junior pitcher Brian Gadsby has looked every bit the Falcons ace and the highly-touted standout he's quickly become. On Wednesday night in a Dick's Tournament game against Fullerton High, Gadsby again looked the part. The junior right-hander tossed a complete game to key the Falcons to a 2-1 victory over the Indians at Stengel Field. It marked the second straight win for Crescenta Valley (3-1). “It wasn't his best stuff,” Falcons Coach Phil Torres said, “but he competed, which he always does.

From one county to another, the bus mileage is racking up this week for the Glendale High boys' soccer team thanks to a golden goal. Junior midfielder Berj Ghazarian scored the second of his two goals about five minutes into overtime to deliver the Nitros a 3-2 victory at host Vista Murrieta of Riverside County in Tuesday afternoon's wild-card round of the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs. With the victory, the Pacific League fourth-place Nitros (10-10-2), who roughly totaled 165 miles on the round trip, earned advancement into the divisional first round at Pacific Coast League champion Corona del Mar (14-3-4)

The following are updates on local athletes at the collegiate level. Coltrane Powdrill (Crescenta Valley High, 2010) Cal Lutheran basketball junior: The former All-Area Player of the Year had a somewhat prolific night Wednesday evening as his Kingsmen hosted Chapman University in a Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference game. While Cal Lutheran (13-4, 4-4 in conference) fell, 86-82, in overtime to Chapman, maybe the most interesting sidebar was the number of times Powdrill was fouled.

LA CRESCENTA - There was something else besides a sore hamstring that's bothered Justin Wright lately. While looking to regain a full range of mobility, the Crescenta Valley High boys' soccer player also sought to break out of a mini scoring drought. Wright accomplished the feat, as he notched two goals and one assist - all in the first half - to propel host Crescenta Valley to a 4-1 Pacific League win against rival Arcadia on Friday. “It's been frustrating with the injury, but I really wanted to break out of the slump,” said Wright, who hadn't scored a goal in Crescenta Valley's three previous matches.

While the high school boys' water polo season is long done, three area players were recently recognized for their accomplishments by being named to either the 2013 All-Southern California or All-American team or in two instances, both. La Cañada High's Peter Loakes and Glendale's Arman Momdzhyan were tabbed to both all-star lists, while Nitro Manuk Piloyan was also selected to the Southern California squad. “This was actually one of my goals heading into this year's high school season,” Momdzhyan said.

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.
