While the Crescenta Valley High boys' swimming team goes into the two-day CIF Southern Section Division II championship meet as the reigning champion, Falcons Coach Jan Sakonju sees his team in a much different light this year. Last season, CV just held off Damien, 301-293, to capture the Division II championship and waiting not much further behind was Los Osos (203). “I don't think [Los Osos is] the main contender, they're the favorite for sure,” said Sakonju, whose team has placed in the top three in Division II the last three years.

The person who submitted the highest EBay bid for a package of memorabilia commemorating Glendale's most famous bear, “Meatball,” never expected to win, but when she did, she gave some of the items back. For San Diego resident Pamela Ricci, her $2,000 bid was more about raising money for the wildlife sanctuary that's become the bear's permanent home than getting to keep the collectibles. In August, state officials took the now-500-pound bear to a San Diego County sanctuary after he snacked on food in local trash cans and roamed foothill neighborhoods for months.

With a stellar senior core at the center of a talented all-around roster, it's become a popular opinion that 2012 could be the best chance the Crescenta Valley High baseball team has had in years to win a Pacific League title and make a deep playoff run. Fortunately for the Falcons, Elliot Surrey takes the mound every few days with a lethal left arm and a quiet confidence that's contagious. "When he pitches, we know he's going to throw strikes and he's going to win us the ballgame," says left fielder Troy Prasertsit, one third of the Falcons' nucleus of four-year starters along with Surrey and center fielder Troy Mulcahey.
