Crescenta Valley track and field competed in the last of their Pacific League meets on Thursday, April 26, at Arcadia High School. Both boys' and girls' varsity teams were defeated by the powerful and multi-talented Apaches, but there were victories for the boys' frosh/soph team, which came out with a solid win. Zack Torres led the pack by winning the 1600 meter and the 3200 meter for the Falcons. Individual victories were had by several varsity athletes at the Pacific League preliminaries on Tuesday, determining who would advance to today's league finals meet at Arcadia.

GLENDALE — With one step in the repeat process now complete, the Crescenta Valley High girls’ golf team will look at its next phase. Crescenta Valley repeated as Pacific League champion Wednesday after getting fine efforts from several of its key players at Brookside Golf Course No. 2 in Pasadena. Sophomore Katie Park carded a one-over-par 72 to pace the Falcons (26-4). Teammate Christine Cho, who will attend Harvard University next year, fired a 74. The Falcons will have four players — Park, Cho, Sally Chun and Krizia Del Rosario — compete for the league individual championship.

GLENDALE ? Losing some quality seniors over the summer doesn?t figure to hurt the Crescenta Valley High boys? swimming team too much. Actually, veteran Coach Jan Sakonju says that with some top-notch freshman talent joining his experienced roster, the Falcons will look to exceed the success of the 2009 season that included a Pacific League title and impressive showings at the CIF Southern Section Division II finals and Masters Meet. ?We?re all very excited for CIF,? said Sakonju, who led the Falcons to a best-ever seventh-place finish in Division II last year.

With a relatively comfortable lead and an All-CIF Southern Section pitcher on the mound, it seemed No. 8 ranked Arcadia was on its way to winning the Pacific League title outright. But apparently with the Falcons, things are not always what they seem. Crescenta Valley overcame a late five-run deficit to record a 7-6 road victory against Arcadia, thus splitting the league title with the Apaches on Thursday at Arcadia High. "It's the biggest comeback based on a game like this," said Crescenta Valley Head Coach Dan Berry, whose team concluded a 21-5 overall record, including 13-1 in league season.

ARCADIA ? It?s generally considered the toughest Pacific League dual meet of the season for the Crescenta Valley High boys? and girls? track and field teams. With that came the added pressure of trying to win a league championship with the league prelims and finals on deck. Crescenta Valley?s teams saw their bids to win league titles thrown to the wayside Monday afternoon in a league dual meet against Arcadia. Arcadia handed Crescenta Valley a 71-57 loss in the girls? competition, while Crescenta Valley fell, 75 1/2 -51 1/2 in the boys?

For somebody who didn't always trust his swing, Justin Yu did quite well. Playing an 18-hole match gave Yu enough time to evaluate his swing Tuesday afternoon. Surprisingly for Yu, things worked out for the best. Yu earned low-medalist honors, as he carded a two-under-par 70 to help Crescenta Valley win its fourth — and final — Pacific League quad match at Brookside Golf Course No. 1. Crescenta Valley (23-2, 15-0 in league) needed Yu's fine effort to top Arcadia by three strokes.

GLENDALE — Coltrane Powdrill wasn’t feigning shock when he was surprised to hear he was named Pacific League co-Most Valuable Player. By his own rationale, his numbers were slightly down from last season and his Falcons squad came just short of winning the league championship — often an unspoken criteria for MVP voting among league coaches — so the outcome seemed unlikely. “After we lost to [league-champion] Pasadena twice,” Powdrill said, “I thought maybe that was it for me.” But Powdrill’s numbers were still quite good enough to be an MVP candidate and his overall contributions to the Falcons’ league season, which culminated in a 10-4 record and a tie for second place with Burbank, were ultimately deemed worthy of him sharing the top individual honor with Pasadena senior guard George Toyama.

There's a new Pacific League champion for girls' varsity softball. It won't be Crescenta Valley which had won the title nine times in a row. Arcadia, which defeated the host Falcons, 3-1, on May 11 in the regular season finale, is the new champ. If the Falcons had won, they would have shared the league crown with the Apaches to extend their reign, but that was not to be. CV finished 8-2 in league (Arcadia is 10-0) and fell to 20-7 overall. The Falcons did make the CIF playoffs and will host Highland today (Friday)
