LA CRESCENTA - Shortly before the season began, each player on the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team met individually with the coaching staff. When it came time for Nick Springer to congregate with the coaches, Springer was assigned multiple roles as one of the returning players from last season's team that reached the CIF Southern Section Division I-A semifinals and advanced to the state tournament. So far, the junior guard has proven to be up to meeting expectations.

MONTROSE ? At least they will have the chance to reverse course following a lopsided loss.

MONTROSE — For much of the first 3 1/2 innings of Saturday’s 10-11-year old Softball Section 2 Tournament ‘if necessary’ championship game at Montrose Park, Crescenta Valley Little League could seemingly do no wrong. But once Quartz Hill’s bats heated up and momentum began to noticeably switch sides, both the offense and defense that came so easily to Crescenta Valley in the early going suddenly became difficult. Over the final three innings Crescenta Valley saw all of an eight-run lead dissipate before Quartz Hill finally scored the winning run on a pair of errors to take the championship with a 9-8 victory.

BURBANK — With a nine-day break in between games, the members of the Crescenta Valley High girls’ basketball team were afforded the rare opportunity to fix some parts of their game. It gave the Falcons time to practice boxing out and grasping the basic fundamentals that will be needed in order to prepare for league and possibly the playoffs. The practice sessions appear to have done a world of good. Refreshed Crescenta Valley had three players score in double-digits Monday afternoon en route to a 59-38 victory against Quartz Hill in an opening round game of the Burroughs Magnolia Park Optimist Tournament at Burroughs High.

SAN MARINO — Standing in the third-base coaching box, Crescenta Valley 9-10 All-Star softball Coach Dan Abboud could see his players brimming with confidence after each base hit.

GLENDALE - The Crescenta Valley 9-10 All-Stars softball team has a special situational cheer that starts with “She's a grand slam hitter.” With the bases loaded against Canyon Country on Sunday and Aidyn Kehrli at the plate, the CV team went into that specific cheer. Kehrli responded with a hit to the deepest part of center field, raced around the bases and beat the throw home for, yes, a grand slam. “In my head I said 'I want to hit a grand slam,'” Kehrli said. Propelled by the grand slam, Crescenta Valley defeated Canyon Country, 12-2, after four innings in the second round of the Section 2 Tournament at Scholl Canyon.
