GLENDALE — It's another second round in the CIF Southern Section playoffs for the Crescenta Valley High baseball team. And it's another journey south to Santa Ana. In the previous two seasons, the Falcons compiled a combined 45-9 record, but for all that success, they've not advanced past the second round. Those last two seasons ended in Santa Ana with losses to Mater Dei in the Division I playoffs. Today, Crescenta Valley travels back to Santa Ana for a Division II game against Foothill, the division's defending champion.

There's a part of us that secretly likes disasters. Well, maybe not so secretly. That's why Joan Didion 's famous riff on the Santa Ana winds - "the weather of catastrophe, of apocalypse" - is hauled out several times a year to explain what L.A. is all about. It's our rep and we stand by it. We chafe when our calamities are overshadowed by hurricanes in Miami or tornadoes in Joplin. So there was a thrill of recognition when the Nov. 30 windstorm added a new motif to our disaster portfolio: not just earthquakes, fires and mudslides - the possibility of a tree apocalypse.

The second-year mentor was pretty happy with his team's second-place finish out of eight teams in the South Coast Invitational, which ran from Friday through Sunday. The Vaqueros (3-1) won three of four games in the tournament, and could have easily won the other and been champions if it weren't some cruel traveling arrangements.

Estancia High golf coach Art Perry and members of the Eagles' boys golf team volunteered their time to help with operations at Tuesday's Jones Cup at Santa Ana Country Club. Christopher "Storm" Hagen, Kyle Jones, Andrew Ayala, Kyle Anderson and Matt Kirchberg held leaderboards and did other tasks throughout the tournament, while Gordon Bowley also volunteered his time. Mesa Verde Country Club head pro Tom Sargent chipped in from the fringe on the 418-yard par-4 16th hole for his lone birdie of the day. Sargent's chip was from about 30 feet out and below the pin. Mesa Verde Country Club senior champion Bryan Rolfe hit a 300-plus-yard drive and reached the green in two on the 503-yard par-5 ninth hole.
