LOS ANGELES - The only time the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team succeeded in finding the back of the net against Chaminade on Thursday night, the resulting goal was waved off. When Hanna Armendariz' shot that seemed to have given the Tologs the lead 17 minutes into the Mission League match was nullified by a late offsides call, the reversal of fortune looked like little more than a temporary setback for a Sacred Heart team that...

The following are odds and ends from the local sports scene. TOLOGS GET ALL-LEAGUE NODS Though the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy softball team didn't appear in the playoffs, a group of Tologs still put up respectable numbers throughout the season. The statistics caught the attention of the six Mission League coaches, who named Kelly Jacobs , Kelly Trueblood and Sumner Hanula to the all-league team. Jacobs, a junior left fielder, earned a spot on the first team after batting .466 overall with two home runs, 11 stolen bases and 16 runs batted in. In league, she batted .353 with five stolen bases and five runs batted in. "She was easily our most consistent hitter," said Flintridge Sacred Heart Coach Kirk Nishiyama , whose team finished 9-13, 3-7 in league for fifth place.

GLENDALE — There are quite a few changes from last season, as it relates to the area's girls' swimming scene. Two of the area's finest individual talents, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy's Andrea Kropp and Glendale's Katalina Sher, are no longer around and Crescenta Valley and Flintridge Prep have gone in new directions with coaching. With a senior-heavy squad, Sacred Heart enjoyed the most success of the bunch last season, but just because Kropp, the reigning News-Press Female Athlete of the Year, is winning titles at Princeton now, Tologs Coach Steve Bergen sees no reason why his team can't continue to win titles in the prestigious Mission League.

GLENDALE - The Hoover High softball team is aware that it will face tough competition once Pacific League play begins in April and opponents like Crescenta Valley High, Burbank and Burroughs line up against the Tornadoes. Until league starts, the Tornadoes will take advantage of teams that are just as young and inexperienced as they are. After scoring 45 runs in their first three games of the season - all wins - the Tornadoes continuing piling on runs in Tuesday's nonleague game against visiting Sacred Heart of Jesus.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — Thursday afternoon’s Horizon League volleyball match might not be the most accurate way to judge the Holy Family volleyball team. At times the Gaels looked shaky, particularly in the second game, and at others they looked dominant. In the end, substitutions and erratic play might have made it impossible to gauge where Holy Family is at after a 25-12, 25-21, 25-18 sweep of Sacred Heart at the Glendale YMCA. “There was a lot of positives we can take from this,” Holy Family Coach Robert Bringas said.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — During the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy volleyball team's 17-25, 25-20, 25-21, 25-18 home loss to Chaminade in its Mission League opener on Tuesday night, Tologs Coach Ann Arlie found her team lacking in desire. Just as troubling, Arlie noted something else has been missing from the squad this season, namely the swagger that formerly accompanied a program accustomed to winning league titles. "In all honesty, I don't think that our team has the attitude any more of, 'We're Sacred Heart and we're gonna win,'" said Arlie of the Tologs, who won four league titles from 2003-06 and have finished second behind Harvard-Westlake the last three seasons.

SOUTHWEST GLENDALE ? Defense kept the Holy Family girls? basketball team in control for most of Saturday night?s Horizon League contest against Sacred Heart of Jesus at Pacific Park Community Center. That could only carry the Gaels so far, however, and a offensive lapse in the fourth quarter that saw the team go scoreless over the last seven-plus minutes proved to be their undoing. Sacred Heart came back from a seven-point deficit to take its first lead since the first quarter with 2:10 to play in the fourth and held on for a 42-39 win. ?

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE ? The way things were going for Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy?s soccer team, it seemed as if this might very well be another season of disappointment when it came to playing rival Harvard-Westlake. But for the first time this millennium, victory was to be had by the Tologs against the Wolverines. A Mimi Roukoz first-half tally stood as the game-winner with the Sacred Heart defense standing tall for a full 80 minutes, leading the Tologs to a 1-0 Mission League win against Harvard-Westlake on Friday night at St. Francis High.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — Apparently there's a purpose in scrimmaging prior to a season-opening match. As far as the members of the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy volleyball team are concerned, they learned a great deal. Seemingly, it helped them during their opener Thursday night against visiting Upland. Sacred Heart received 21 kills and 12 digs from outside hitter Camille Coffey and 13 kills from outside hitter Alyssa Walton en route to a 27-25, 25-16, 17-25, 25-20 nonleague home victory.

LOS ANGELES - With just four events remaining in Tuesday's Mission League double-dual meet, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy swimming team's grip on the league championship was loosening. Defending-champion Alemany, which entered the meet at Loyola High as the last undefeated squad in league besides the Tologs, had closed a double-digit lead down to five points after Sacred Heart was shut out of the top two spots in the 500-yard freestyle. No one had seen the Tologs' best yet, it turned out, as Sacred Heart swept the final four events to quickly remove all doubt about who now holds the crown.

For a brief moment back in the late 1920s, Chevy Chase Drive connected the Biltmore resort hotel in Flintridge with the elegant Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. The connection? A bus, a De Luxe Parlor Car Bus. The hilltop resort, first called the Flintridge Hotel, was the brainchild of Frank P. Flint, a retired senator, landowner and real estate magnate, and was designed by noted Southern California architect Myron Hunt, who also designed the Ambassador Hotel. Known as the father of Flintridge, Flint had opened some 1,500 of his acres for development in 1917.

LA CAÑADA - How big an impact the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy softball team will make within the competitive Mission League may very well center on how much the squad treats those contests as anything other than league play. That's because the Tologs continued their strong nonleague run with a 10-5 victory over visiting Maranatha on Thursday afternoon in a game in which Flintridge Sacred Heart scored in five of six innings and took advantage of six Minutemen errors. “The girls played well today and if you would have told me at the beginning of the season that we'd be 8-2, I wouldn't have believed it,” said Flintridge Sacred Heart Coach Kirk Nishiyama, whose team improved to 8-1 in nonleague games this season and 8-2 overall.

A tough season wasn't without rewards for the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team. Tologs senior Dani Garcia was named the Mission League's Most Valuable Goalie, while senior Casey Basso was selected to the league's first team and sophomore Lauren Savo was tabbed a second-teamer on the recently released awards list. “It's surprising, but not surprising, at least when I first heard about it,” Garcia said. “A couple of [Mission League] coaches said they thought I did an amazing job this season and I was honored they said that.

STUDIO CITY - With the core of its team back and a few talented underclassmen on board, it might be difficult to wrestle the Mission League title away from the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy swimming team. The Tologs came into the season having won two straight undefeated league championships with a seventh-place finish in the CIF Southern Section Division I final in Riverside last season. Backed with additional depth, the Tologs figure to be a tough squad for their league opponents to solve.

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.

During coach Steve Bergen's current tenure, now entering its fifth season, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy swimming team has made quantum leaps of improvement from year to year, placing 34th in CIF Southern Section Division 1 three years ago, 14th the next and vaulting all the way to seventh last season. Perhaps just as impressive has been the Tologs' return to sustained preeminence in the elite Mission League, where they are coming off back-to-back championships. With both youth and experience on its side, the renaissance is primed to roll on, as Sacred Heart would appear to have enough depth and star power on its roster to not only sustain its current footing, but perhaps push its way back into the running for its first Division 1 title since 2007 over the next couple of seasons.
