GLENDALE — Throughout the regular season, the Flintridge Prep girls' tennis team never ignored its main strength — a formidable singles lineup capable of leading the way to victory. Flintridge Prep Coach Ron Catano doesn't have any intention of deviating from it during the postseason, either. Flintridge Prep capitalized on it in a big way on Thursday afternoon, as it won seven singles sets en route to a 10-8 road win against Mission Viejo in a CIF Southern Section Division II first-round match.

GLENDALE — With over two weeks of spring break ahead, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy swimming team will get some well-deserved rest before resuming its Mission League schedule. A fast-paced agenda to begin the first half of the season wrapped up on Saturday with a ninth-place team showing in the 38th Annual Mission Viejo High School Invitational at Marguerite Sports Complex in Mission Viejo, one of the fastest meets in Southern California. In addition to the strong team finish, the Tologs also turned in several of their season-best times, including two automatic All-American marks for senior Andrea Kropp.

The long and difficult struggle that was the Crescenta Valley varsity boys' basketball season finally came to an end on Feb. 16 as the Falcons fell to visiting Mission Viejo in a CIF Division I-A Wild Card playoff game. CV's 68-56 loss to the Diablos caused the team to finish the season below the .500 mark at 13-14. The Falcons, who came in fourth in the Pacific League with a 3-7 record, made the playoffs as an at-large team. The Falcons played without senior center Zack Garcia, who missed the game due to academic ineligibility, the team's latest setback this season.

MISSION VIEJO - The game plan was to have a slower-paced offense that would limit the possessions for the an opponent averaging 69 points per game. The plan was to set the game tempo to its liking, bringing the ball up the court deliberately and preventing fast-break chances. The strategy worked for nearly three full quarters. But unfortunately for the Glendale High boys' basketball team, top-seeded Mission Viejo was too powerful. The Nitros couldn't stop an explosive Diablo team and were eliminated from the CIF Southern Section Division I playoffs with 63-39 second-round loss on Tuesday night at Mission Viejo.

Erik Boal The game plan was in place. The defense rose to the occasion. And the effort and intensity were remarkable. But as Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball Coach Adam Jacobsen always reminds his players, to win games of Friday night's magnitude -- especially on the road -- that type of emotion, execution and discipline need to be present for 32 minutes, not just 22. The Falcons gave Mission Viejo all it...

Charles Rich No more than five minutes following the conclusion of the most tumultuous season Jim Smiley had to endure, he recalled trying to assemble the pieces of the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team's puzzle. While speaking, the Crescenta Valley coach looked puzzled and fatigued.

Things didn't go exactly as planned during the first round of the Hoover High boys' tennis team's CIF Southern Section Division II wild-card match at Mission Viejo on Tuesday. Looking to take a lead into the second round, the Tornadoes instead went in tied at 3 after No. 1 singles Oleg Simonyan suffered a loss to his counterpart. "That was nerve wracking and disappointing," Hoover Coach Julie Hoppe said. "That's kind of been the psychology — if we can go up in the first round, that's big. It really sets the tone for the rest of the match.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE - The seniors on the Glendale High boys' basketball team promised before the season that they wouldn't graduate without giving Coach Steve Snodgress his first playoff win in his 16-year tenure.

It was the program's first postseason victory since a 56-54 triumph against Santa Monica on Feb. 16, 1993 in the first round of the Division IAA playoffs.

Though she had no direct experience in the art of shot putting, Melanie Samvalian didn't let it deter her from learning. Coaxed into giving it a try two years ago, Samvalian stepped into the throwing circle for the first time and developed an immediate appreciation. It turned out Samvalian, a member of the Crescenta Valley High girls' track and field team, made the right choice. "I took the ball for the first time and threw it," Samvalian said. "I didn't even know the fundamentals of it, but I learned real quick about how you have to throw it far. "I knew it would be for me."
