LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE - La Salle High boys' soccer Coach Dan Sheridan called the St. Francis program one of the "best in the valley," in the past 20 years, and mentioned it was beneficial for his team to play the Golden Knights. Although Sheridan had to settle for a 0-0 outing against St. Francis in Tuesday's season opener for both teams, the head coach was pleased with his squad's performance against a talented Golden Knights program at Friedman Field. While Sheridan was pleased with his defense, his counterpart was simply disappointed.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — Something didn’t seem right while Flintridge Prep boys’ water polo Coach Keean Ferguson watched his team perform Monday afternoon. Unfortunately for Ferguson, it’s an act he’s seen unfold more than once throughout the first part of the season — lackluster efforts from some of his athletes. Flintridge Prep appeared out of sync throughout a 12-6 Prep League loss to visiting La Salle. “For the most part, we did what we wanted to defensively,” said Ferguson, whose team fell to 6-5 and 0-2 in league.

PASADENA - While the passing was sloppy, communication lacked and mother nature interfered with modest rain, there wasn't much that separated the Crescenta Valley High and La Salle girls' soccer teams - except for perhaps one hustle play. A rebound goal from senior Katie Callister in the first minute of extra time accounted for the offense in Friday's nonleague affair as the visiting Falcons defeated the Lancers, 1-0, at Kohorst Field. “La Salle is very good and they have a lot of things going, so it was nice to get a win,” Crescenta Valley Coach Jorden Schulz said.

PASADENA - The first three quarters belonged to the St. Francis High boys' basketball team when it took on La Salle Wednesday night, but one play changed all that. The Lancers' Jordan Hill brought his team and home fans back in the game with a two-handed dunk late in the third quarter. The jam sparked a La Salle run that cut what was a 13-point deficit to six, but St. Francis withstood the comeback attempt to pull out a 57-52 victory in the quarterfinals of the La Salle/Temple City Holiday Classic.

BURBANK - During the first half of its summer league game against La Salle High on Wednesday night, the Glendale girls' basketball team fell in a rut. The Nitros were stagnant throughout the game's opening 20 minutes and were in need of somebody to help them turn the corner on offense. Glendale found Tara Abdul-Ahad to lead a second-half charge. Abdul-Ahad scored 18 of her game-high 21 points in the second half to lead Glendale to a 40-28 victory at Burbank High. "I'm always looking for that first shot," Abdul-Ahad said.

ARCADIA - Just one evening removed from pulling off an extra-inning comeback win in pool play of the Apache Invitational, the St. Francis High baseball team came close to an encore in the tournament's consolation round on Saturday. The Golden Knights finally got to La Salle starter Bowdien "Bubba" Derby in the bottom of the sixth inning, scoring twice to slice a four-run deficit in half, but they couldn't finish the senior right-hander off. Instead, it was Derby finishing St. Francis off, when he got out of the sixth with the go-ahead run at the plate and retired the side in order in the seventh to cap a complete-game 6-4 victory with six hits and three earned runs allowed, while fanning 10. "That's baseball, those guys can't be expected to give us a walk-off every game," said St. Francis interim Coach Aaron Milam, who got a single and a double from David Olmedo-Barrera and a two-run double from Cole Ramseyer.

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.

Power hitting isn't always a necessity for the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy volleyball team during a rally. For the Tologs, it's more about grinding out points and wearing down opposing defenses in order to pick up critical points throughout a match. It's worked particularly well throughout the CIF Southern Section Division I-A playoffs for the Tologs on their way to the quarterfinals. Fourth-seeded Flintridge Sacred Heart (25-4) will look to continue the trend when it takes on visiting El Dorado (16-8)
