LA CAÑADA - Flintridge Prep made the short trip to St. Francis High School to take on the Golden Knights for the second time this season in a nonleague volleyball match. The contest was scheduled just recently by Rebels Coach Sean Beattie, who wanted to avoid an extended layoff before his No. 9-ranked squad went into the CIF-Southern Section Division IV playoffs next. “We just scheduled this match a week ago because we were going to have a week off and I wanted to make sure we had a game between our last game and playoffs,” said Beattie, whose team lost to St. Francis in four games earlier in the season.

LA CRESCENTA - It seemed as though Kirsten Cabarong had an answer near the end of each game for the Glendale High girls' volleyball team during Tuesday's Pacific League match against rival Crescenta Valley. When the Nitros needed a key point or block, they turned to the senior middle blocker to deliver. Cabarong relished the role of being a force on the court. Cabarong finished with 13 kills and nine blocks to spark visiting Glendale to a 25-19, 25-23, 25-19 win in the first of two head-to-head meetings against Crescenta Valley.

PASADENA - While Sunday afternoon's second annual San Gabriel Valley All-Star Boys' Volleyball Game at La Salle High had its pleasantries and moments of fraternity, there was a certain edge this time around that perhaps lacked a year earlier.

A Glendale man who was brutally beaten and later shot to death had briefly escaped his attackers and attempted to chase down a passing motorist as he yelled and pleaded for help because he feared he was going to be killed, detectives testified in court this week. Moments before, the passing motorist had urged the men attacking 33-year-old Joshua West to stop last April 24 in the 10700 block of Vinedale Street in Sun Valley, but she continued driving because “she was too afraid to stop and let him in,” Los Angeles Police Det. Joshua Byers testified Tuesday during a preliminary hearing for West's alleged attackers.
