LOS ANGELES ? Anytime Julie Herrera moved on the parquet floor, good things happened for the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy volleyball team.

The Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy-Notre Dame Academy winner will meet top-seeded Santa Barbara or Upland in a semifinal match Tuesday at a site to be determined.

Charles Rich There's enough pressure when they enter their classrooms, situated atop a hill overlooking La Canada Flintridge and part of the spacious San Gabriel Valley. The view can be panoramic, but the conversations that take place between the two student-athletes and their teachers doesn't necessarily apply to homework assignments or test scores all of the time. There's plenty of supportive dialogue. The conversations between Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy volleyball players Kelly Smiland and Katie Kriste and their teachers and fellow students concern kills and digs, rather than a mathematic problem or a branch of the United States government.

LOS ANGELES — If there’s one thing Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy basketball Coach Gino Pacella could wish for, it would be a veteran center with a strong inside presence. Pacella might some day have his wish granted. In the meantime, he’ll spend the next few days thinking about what he witnessed Thursday night — an all-around complete game by Erin Teter of Notre Dame Academy that eventually put an end to the Tologs’ season. Teter finished with a game-high 21 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lift host Notre Dame to a 63-48 victory against Sacred Heart in a CIF Southern Section Division IV-A first-round game.

CYPRESS — Up until Saturday evening, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy volleyball team’s run through the postseason had largely been one of few flaws. Whether it was a second-round sweep of El Modena, a gritty five-game victory over Notre Dame Academy in the quarterfinals, or a flat out dominant win over last year’s playoff nemesis Santa Barbara in the semifinals, the Tologs had been playing some of the their best volleyball of the season. When they met up with league rival Harvard-Westlake in the CIF Southern Section Division I-A Finals, Sacred Heart learned an untimely lesson — play one bad game and it might cost you a championship.

It is rare that a student-athlete has an opportunity to spend their entire high school career growing and improving as an integral part of an elite varsity squad. By next year, Sam Orlandini, currently a junior in her third year as a varsity starter for the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy volleyball team, will bear that distinction. Orlandini, however, hasn't needed to wait for her senior year to make her mark on this storied program. The 2006 season has truly been a breakout year for the Sacred Heart setter, one in which she has come into her own as the catalyst and facilitator of the Tologs' potent attack.
