The mild Crown City rivals opened the regular season with a back-and-forth affair secured over the final two sets by the Cubs in a 10-8 nonleague victory at the Arroyo Seco Racquet Club. “This win felt really good.

St. James the Less Catholic School in La Crescenta will bid adieu to another eighth grade class on June 12. This class has a far reaching history since the majority of students have stayed together as a class throughout their academic career. They leave St. James with some distinction, too, as this is the first class in a long time that have so many students continuing on to a Catholic high school. As a class, they have the most students who were accepted with honors to a Catholic high school.
