There's a sense of excitement that the 2014 track and field season could be special in different ways for each of the Crescenta Valley High, Flintridge Prep, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy, Glendale, Holy Family and Hoover girls' teams. Whether it's competing for a league title, advancing deep into the postseason or proving formidable, each local squad is looking to make an impact this season. At Crescenta Valley, the Falcons are hoping to challenge archrival Arcadia for a Pacific League title, as the squads are slated to face each other on April 22. Before that, however, expect Crescenta Valley to show off its depth.

GLENDALE - For the first time in recent memory, it appears the race is wide open to nab the Pacific League championship in boys' tennis. Burroughs and Arcadia have usually enjoyed top billing in league the past few seasons. Now, there are other teams in the mix who have cast their championship aspirations. Among those teams in the group are Hoover and Crescenta Valley, squads that met for the first of two head-to-head meetings Tuesday. Hoover turned to its budding trio of singles players to capture seven sets en route to a 10-8 home win. “A lot of the teams are right there,” said Hoover Coach Julie Hoppe, a former All-Area Boys' Coach of the Year who saw her team improve to 5-3, 3-1 in league.

GLENDALE - Behind a fast start and versus a short-handed opponent, the Glendale High girls' lacrosse team made quick work of visiting La Cañada High in an early Pacific League matchup. The Nitros scored the game's first 10 goals and didn't allow the Spartans an actual shot on goal until 8 minutes and 20 seconds into their match, which ended as a 16-1 victory for Glendale on Tuesday afternoon at Moyse Field. “We've come a long way,” Glendale Coach Joe Campbell said. “Our skills are better than they've been in the past and we're able to play a better brand on the field.

LA CRESCENTA - Crescenta Valley High's boys' tennis team stayed undefeated and continued an impressive start to the Pacific League season with a win over Glendale at home on Thursday. The Falcons have yet to play a nonleague match this season and sit atop the Pacific League standings with their four wins in as many matches, including a 10-8 victory over the Nitros. Sam Hyun, who coached the Falcons to a fourth-place league finish last season, admitted it is unfamiliar ground.

GLENDALE - Most times when Ryan Kovarik found himself in front of the net, the Glendale High boys' volleyball team got a favorable result. The junior middle blocker found himself right in the middle of things for Glendale, providing quality defense and some timely kills Thursday against crosstown rival Hoover in a Pacific League-opening match for both teams. “Blocks just seem to come natural for me and you try to find the open spots to get kills,” said Kovarik, who finished with 11 kills and 10 blocks to lead host Glendale to a 22-11, 22-25, 25-18, 25-15 win. “You try to stay confident and not get frustrated.

Big things will again be expected of Emile Ohanyan. Fresh off two straight semifinal appearances in the Pacific League Tournament, the Hoover High boys' singles tennis player will look to cap his career with a league championship and help the Tornadoes advance to the playoffs for a fourth consecutive season. It's a challenge, one that Hoover Coach Julie Hoppe said Ohanyan can accomplish. "Emile has gotten bigger, stronger and more confident," said Hoppe, a former All-Area Boys' Tennis Coach of the Year.

ARCADIA - No matter how many wins or how far a postseason run the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team would make, one prize remained elusive year after year. The Falcons were never quite able to haul in a Pacific League championship during the 10-year tenure of head coach and school alumnus Shawn Zargarian. That was until Thursday evening, when the Falcons finally had their chance and only had struggling archrival Arcadia in their way. While the Apaches gave the Falcons a real battle, there was no denying Crescenta Valley, which clinched a share of its first league title since 2004 with a 54-47 victory.

BURBANK - Defense has long been a cornerstone for Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo success. Thus, on Thursday, as a lack of offensive execution and production drew the ire of Falcons Coach Brent Danna, it was defensive dominance throughout that still afforded Crescenta Valley a comfortable 13-1 victory against Glendale in the Pacific League Tournament final at Burbank High to wrap up the league crown. “Everything's defense,” said Crescenta Valley's Elissa Arnold, who had four goals and four steals.
