GLENDALE - Jennifer Matsuda didn't seem to mind being peppered with a lot of shots. The Glendale Adventist Academy senior girls' soccer goalkeeper and her teammates entered Tuesday's Liberty League home contest a bit rusty by virtue of only having played two matches to go along with a limited amount of practice time. “It's good to get back to playing games,” said Matsuda, who finished with 15 saves in Glendale Adventist's 8-0 defeat against Buckley at the Glendale Sports Complex.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE ? Wins have not come easy for the Flintridge Prep girls' volleyball team this season but the win it acquired on Saturday afternoon was effortless. The Rebels picked up a victory in their final match of the season, a nonleague affair against visiting Oakwood High, by virtue of a forfeit arising from a scheduling glitch. "There was a miscommunication about the start time that led to the forfeit," said Flintridge Prep Athletic Director Alex Rivera, who confirmed the official victory by forfeit Saturday evening.

Jeff Tully Like most of the other baseball coaches in the city, Providence High's Blaine Anderson has been dealing with a soggy problem the past few weeks. "We have really had a tough time with all the rain that we have been having," Anderson said. "It has really hurt us as far as our practices are concerned, and we have been running around to different fields trying to get practices in. "But we have the use of a batting cage this season, and that should help us."

Nick Rondon is a stat guy. A business major in college, he is a whiz when it comes to numbers. As an assistant girls' basketball coach at Providence High, it was right up his alley when Rondon was put in charge of compiling the Pioneers' statistics this past season. It also seems a natural fit that Rondon ? a Providence graduate ? was named the new Pioneer baseball coach and will be able to put his number experience to use in a sport driven by statistics. "I plan to have everything updated and current with the team," Rondon said.

grantBasketball: CV girls' team avoids upset against Providence after 10-point run to start final period.BURBANK -- Sprinkled amidst the hubbub of Pacific and Liberty League games, Providence and Crescenta Valley high's girls' basketball teams gathered for a nonleague affair Saturday afternoon.

In the end, Crescenta Valley may have just found the positive momentum it so desperately needed, while Providence Coach Andrew Bencze is still unsure of his team's prospects after its 40-33 nonleague loss to the Falcons at Providence High.
