Hamlet Nalbandyan GLENDALE -- The La Canada High boys' tennis team is riding high after defeating previously undefeated High South Hills on Tuesday, and the Spartans will need that momentum today. La Canada will host a second-round CIF Southern Section Division IV match at the La Canada Flintridge Country Club, the home site for the Spartans. Culver City comes into today's match after an 11-7 victory over Westridge, the No. 1 team from the Orange League.

Peter Samore LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE -- La Canada High boys' tennis Coach Will Moravec is still learning his teams' strengths, though the season is three weeks old. However, Moravec has no choice. The recent rains took away his chance to see his team before competition began. Moravec saw his doubles teams win six of nine games Tuesday against Hart, but learned his singles players need to make a few adjustments. Hart swept all nine singles contests to beat La Canada, 12-6, in a nonleague match at the La Canada Country Club.

Charles Rich Will Moravec might want to create another ploy to motivate his team. Shaving the head of the La Canada High boys' tennis coach won't be in the cards for at least three more weeks. Moravec reached that conclusion Friday after La Canada dropped a 12-6 Rio Hondo League road match to powerful San Marino. Moravec's dirty-blond hair will be spared from the electric shaver until at least May 7, when the two squads meet at the La Canada Country Club.

PLACENTIA -- Less than five minutes after the La Canada High boys' tennis team's season concluded, Justin Kim began making plans for next year. Kim, who was upset after La Canada dropped a 15-3 CIF Southern Section Division II first-round match to host El Dorado on Thursday, made some poignant remarks. Expected to be the team's captain next season, Kim said he will make sure all returning players will be on the same page with him. He will get those promises in writing.

LA CA—ADA FLINTRIDGE ? A strong cast of doubles players might be the key factor that determines how the La Cañada High boys' team fares this season. The Spartans have been hampered the past several seasons because of a lack of depth, especially with their doubles teams. They now have a rock-solid No. 3 doubles team in Erik Johnson and Jeff Pih that will aim to have the Spartans contend for the Rio Hondo League championship during the next couple of months. Johnson and Pih swept their three sets to lead La Cañada to an 11-7 nonleague victory against intercity rival Crescenta Valley on Wednesday at the La Cañada Country Club.

Charles Rich Ask any member of the La Canada High boys' tennis team how their Tuesday went, and most of the responses would border on the bizarre. That was before the visiting Spartans saw their season end after Valencia handed them a 13-5 loss in a first-round match of the CIF Southern Section Division II playoffs at Paseo Tennis Club. Valencia (19-1) will meet the winner of Oxnard Rio Mesa or Arroyo Grande in a second-round contest at 2 p.m. Thursday at a site to be determined.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - Going into Monday's nonleague match between the St. Francis High and La Cañada boys' tennis teams, both respective coaches had a good idea of how the event was going to play out. After all, the Golden Knights' proven singles competitors have shown stellar play this season, while the Spartans' experienced doubles pairs have been consistent thus far. In the end, St. Francis continued its dominant play in singles, but...

Erik Boal LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE -- A slow start and a quick finish were too much for the La Canada High boys' tennis team to overcome in Thursday's CIF Southern Section second-round playoff match. The Spartans dropped five of their first six sets, only to win four of their next seven, before dropping the last five as they fell, 13-5, to No. 5-seed Calabasas at the La Canada Country Club. Impressed by Calabasas' (15-2) doubles effort in its opening-round win against Rosemead -- in which the Coyotes dropped just five games in nine sets in their 17-1 victory -- La Canada Coach Will Moravec attempted to stack his doubles lineup to remain as competitive as possible.

Longtime La Cañada High boys' tennis Coach Will Moravec assured that if his 2006 Spartan squad was to experience any kind of success, it would be made possible by a strong doubles contingent. The Spartans continued their string of CIF postseason appearances and it was in no small way due to doubles, particularly the senior tandem of Erik Johnson and Jeff Pih. "Usually for La Cañada tennis, it's always been doubles that hold the weight of the team," said Pih, who along with Johnson, posted a 26-7 record this season en route to being voted the All-Area Doubles Team of the Year by the editors and writers of the Burbank Leader, Foothill Leader and Glendale News-Press.

Erik Boal The La Canada High boys' tennis team was supposed to meet Arcadia on May 5 in a nonleague contest, but because of a scheduling conflict for Spartan Coach Will Moravec, the match never took place. Moravec -- the tennis professional at the La Canada Country Club -- was required to supervise his half of a charity golf and tennis tournament that day, which didn't allow enough time for the match to be completed. But in Tuesday's CIF Southern Section Division II second-round playoff contest, the second-seeded Apaches finally got their showdown with the Spartans, and unfortunately for Moravec and his players, Arcadia wasn't in a charitable mood.
