BURBANK ? While its monumental dual-meet winning streak had fallen to the wayside, the Crescenta Valley High boys' swimming team had one streak left to maintain. And the Falcons did just that, claiming a share of their 14th consecutive Pacific League title, swimming past archrival Arcadia by a 658.5-603 tally in the league finals on Thursday at Burbank High. Just a week earlier, the Apaches had handed the Falcons a dual-meet loss, claiming a share of the league title and ending Crescenta Valley's mammoth dual-meet win streak at 42 in the process.

GLENDALE — Often times during the Crescenta Valley High girls' soccer team's dominant run to the Pacific League title in 2007, Falcons Coach Cesar Hidalgo would show up to games looking not like a coach, but a businessman. Most of the time, Hidalgo came straight from his day job to the CV sideline. "It was very hard going back and forth," said Hidalgo of coaching the Falcons and his full-time job as a purchasing supervisor in the aerospace field. "It was mentally draining more than anything else."

Sang Lee HOOVER HIGH SCHOOL -- As if the Pacific League race in boys' soccer wasn't unpredictable enough, Hoover High added their name to the hottly contested top spot by disposing of CV 2-0 on Wednesday at Hoover. The Tornadoes (9-7-3, 1-1-1 in league) came off a 2-2 tie yesterday against Muir while the Falcons defeated Glendale 1-0. The Nitros pulled out the victory against Hoover last Tuesday 3-2. Arcadia High, the Pacific League champs for the last 13 years, tied with Muir 2-2, also last Tuesday, which gives Tornado Coach Mark Rubio reason to believe his team has a chance at the league title.

Mirjam Swanson PASADENA -- There was nary a thing to get upset about at Monday's Pacific League boys' tennis preliminaries at Pasadena High. At least, that was the case after Hoover High's No. 4 seeded singles player Sam Tadevosian, who had battled through two three-set matches in a tournament in Anaheim over the weekend, finally shook Muir's Patrick Adams in the second round, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4. Tadevosian will match up with teammate Dylan Kim, who cruised in his two matches -- "easy" he called it -- in Wednesday's league semifinal, also at Pasadena High.

LA CRESCENTA — There was no Tori Baldridge, there was no Brittany Berger and there was likely plenty who did not give the Crescenta Valley High girls’ soccer team much of a chance against archrival Arcadia in Thursday’s battle for the Pacific League title. But it was the Falcons who found themselves celebrating as “We are the champions” cascaded their home field. Sophomore Frances Boukidis had two goals in the match’s opening 10 minutes and fellow 10th-grader Jordan Royer added a goal and an assist thereafter as Crescenta Valley bested archrival Arcadia, 4-2, to win their third league title in five seasons.

It was Cole Currie's ability to provide a bucket seemingly whenever the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team needed one that drew the most attention this season. The Falcons guard averaged a team-high 19.6 points in league games en route to guiding Crescenta Valley to second place in the Pacific League. It also helped Currie cement his place as one of the top players in league, as he named the league's co-player of the year with Pasadena High's Andrew Spight. “That's what I was working for all summer and into the fall before the season,” said Currie, who also averaged five assists and 4.5 rebounds a league game, of the award, “but I knew if we didn't accomplish anything as a team we had no chance.

From Staff Reports Odds and ends from the local high school boys' water polo scene: Here we go again: If the unpredictable nature of the Pacific League entering the final week of the regular season seems all too familiar, that's because it is.

GLENDALE — Having a bona fide goal scorer in the lineup became a requisite for establishing dominance in the Pacific League for most of the past decade. For the Crescenta Valley High girls’ water polo team, it’s had plenty of true goal scorers, ranging from Jessie Stiles to Kristin McLaughlin to Lybov Tchougounova. The Falcons, who will be seeking a sixth consecutive league championship, have chosen to go in a different direction. Crescenta Valley won’t have a go-to scorer, but will look to spread out the offense.
