Charles Rich It's a good thing that Pat Donovan's running marks have reduced gradually. Even if it took a remarkable performance from the St. Francis High boys' cross-country runner to set a personal-best mark on one of the more demanding courses he's encountered.

Erik Boal If there was one local athlete who was a safe bet to advance to the CIF Southern Section-Toyota Track and Field Championships out of Saturday's preliminaries, it was Lindsay Fletcher. But the Flintridge Prep junior won't be the only area standout competing at Cerritos College during Saturday's event. She'll have 17 other individuals making the trip to Norwalk, including 11 of her Rebel teammates and male counterparts. Fletcher posted the second-fastest qualifying marks in the 100- and 200-meter events at the Division IV prelims at Moorpark High -- trailing Woodland Hills Louisville sophomore Elizabeth Olear in both events -- in addition to helping Flintridge Prep's 400 and 1,600 relay teams qualify for the final with the third-fastest times in each race.

GLENDALE — Jumping up a level to CIF Southern Section Division I has considerably diminished the presence the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy swimming team will have at Friday’s final meet at Mount San Antonio College, compared to each of the last two seasons, when the Tologs were a force at the Division II finals. Crescenta Valley High’s boys’ team, on the other hand, has a good chance to advance a bigger group of swimmers to championship heats of Saturday’s Division II final than in previous seasons in Friday’s Division II prelims.

While eight schools will at least send one representative to next week's Pacific League track and field finals at Arcadia High, at least locally, the biggest contingent will hail from Crescenta Valley High. That's because the Falcons qualified 30 of the total 44 local competitors out of Friday's preliminaries held at Arcadia High. Overall, 16 qualifying positions were taken by Crescenta Valley girls, including five entrants in two events. Sophomore Megan Melnyk may represent the Falcons' best chance at taking home two events as the long-distance runner advanced in both the 1,600-meter run (second, 5 minutes 22.82 seconds)
