LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — Should Kevin Matthews come close to completely losing his voice, then it’s a good sign, apparently. His vocal chords got quite a workout Thursday afternoon while yelling out instructions to his teammates. He also made some offensive contributions. Matthews finished with four goals and three steals to help power host Flintridge Prep to a 13-3 nonleague victory against Sierra Vista. With Matthews, a senior hole/set and hole/guard leading the way, the Rebels (2-0)

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — Illness has struck the Flintridge Prep boys’ water polo team at the most inopportune time — just as the Rebels are trying to get a foothold in the Prep League. Prep was most notably without starters Garrett Wax and Jeff Tobias, who are both sick, and had starting goalkeeper Ryan Loui at only partial strength, as he recovered from illness, on Tuesday when they hosted Chadwick, the fourth-ranked team in CIF Southern Section Division VI. With junior varsity players bolstering the Rebels’ skeleton crew lineup, it didn’t take long for the Dolphins to pull away en route to an 18-3 win. “We had about three or four JV guys in the water and when you’re going against the No. 4 team in CIF, you can’t have JV guys in the water,” said Rebels Coach Kean Ferguson, whose team (6-6)

GLENDALE — As the 2009 boys’ water polo season quickly approaches, Crescenta Valley High, Glendale and Hoover all have an eye on the top spot in the Pacific League, but Crescenta Valley is essentially already there, having just come off an undefeated league title, not to mention the CIF Southern Section Division VI championship, in 2008. The Falcons appear to be the team to beat in league once again, with veteran Coach Jan Sakonju offering the prognosis that his current squad is even deeper than the previous one. While Crescenta Valley has some significant losses from last year, including All-Area Player of the Year Tristan Winterhalter, Nelson White and goalkeeper Danny Mock, there are plenty of strong returners, such as senior co-captains hole/set Chris Veselich and driver Martin Rivera.

GLENDALE — It’s been 16 years and counting since the Crescenta Valley High boys’ swimming program settled for anything less than a share of the Pacific League title, a model of consistency that predates even veteran Coach Jan Sakonju, who is in his ninth year. The last three years have come down to the league finals meet, where the Falcons have entered trailing dual-meet champion Arcadia only to force a co-championship with their archrival. The league finals, as they are currently constructed, could be a thing of the past, as there is currently a proposal on the table for the league’s athletic directors to vote on that would split the varsity and junior varsity league finals meets and reduce the number of varsity swimmers that can participate.
