Prep League

GLENDALE — Before the Flintridge Prep boys' basketball team could enter the CIF Southern Section Division 5-AA playoffs as the No. 1 seed, en route to becoming an eventual CIF champion — it had to take care of business in the Prep League. Defending its league title was a major point on a list of ambitious accomplishments the Rebels (24-7) strived to fulfill this season and they were successful, posting a 7-1 mark and clinching a co-championship. As a result, Prep's entire starting lineup was represented in the coaches' all-league voting, with senior center Kenyatta Smith leading the way with a Prep League co–Most Valuable Player nod. "I was just very grateful and feel like a lot of the hard work me and my team put in in league really paid off," said Smith, who shared the co-MVP award with Daniel Wohl of co-champion Pasadena Poly.

GLENDALE ?

Seven Flintridge Prep football players, three boys' water polo athletes and two girls' volleyball players received all-league status. Flintridge Prep boys' water polo player Matt Brown was tabbed the league's co-most valuable player after leading the Rebels to a record of 18-10 and 4-4 in league for fourth place.

PASADENA — With a comfortable eight-point cushion heading into the second half, the Flintridge Prep girls' basketball team was all smiles. Laughing and giggling, the Rebels were perhaps a bit too relaxed. For the first two minutes and 38 seconds of the half, Prep was held scoreless. "I think it took a while for us to actually get our rhythm, and then it finally clicked," Rebels senior center Laurel Myers said. Myers had a game-high 15 points, seven rebounds and five steals, while Rebels junior guard Courtney Robinson added 14, as Flintridge Prep rolled past host Pasadena Poly, 60-38, in Tuesday evening's Prep League contest.

GLENDALE — Even as Prep League play began in early April, the Flintridge Prep boys' volleyball team was still attempting to jell, having barely gotten its core lineup together on the court for the first time. Prominent Rebels starters Kenyatta Smith and Jared Norsworthy, both seniors, missed all preseason activities and a good chunk of the nonleague schedule before returning in time to help the Rebels qualify for the CIF Southern Section Division IV playoffs. Even at full strength, the Rebels had their hands full with league mates Chadwick and Pasadena Poly, finishing behind the Dolphins and Panthers in the final league standings at 4-4. "I thought the team played very well," said Prep Coach Sean Beattie, whose team rose to the occasion in its final two league games against Webb and Rio Hondo Prep when they needed wins in both to make the playoffs.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - Carlo Sivilotti has never forgotten what one of his former coaches once told him: "The third quarter of anything is when you show your true colors. " That's exactly what Sivilotti and the Flintridge Prep boys' water polo team did in their Prep League and regular-season finale at home against Chadwick Saturday. The Rebels found themselves down by two at the end of the first quarter and tied at halftime, but it was the third quarter when they scored three unanswered goals to pull ahead and never looked back.

PASADENA - For 6 2/3 innings, the script seemed oh so perfect for the Flintridge Prep baseball team. The Rebels, who only two days earlier were embarrassed by Prep League rival Pasadena Poly, were ahead by two runs at the home of their archrival despite having already blown an early four-run lead and being down to only nine players. Yet, a tale of redemption for Flintridge Prep instead flipped into a storybook ending for the Panthers, who celebrated wildly after senior third baseman Michael Bowman whacked an offering in the bottom of the seventh off the roof of Babcock Gymnasium for a three-run homer that delivered Poly a frantic come-from-behind 10-9 victory Thursday afternoon.

For the St. Francis High basketball team, it enjoyed its most successful season in program history. Two of the biggest reasons for the Golden Knights' success came in the form of consistent efforts throughout the season from Kyle Leufroy and Evan Crawford. The duo helped St. Francis advance to the CIF Southern Section Division III-A championship game and the second round of the CIF State tournament. The duo was rewarded for its contributions Monday, when the CIF Southern Section Office unveiled its All-CIF awards.
