GLENDALE — Charting the progression of the Crescenta Valley High softball team from the beginning of the season to now is a bit of an arduous task. It’s difficult to really notice improvement when a team hasn’t lost a game. But heading into today’s CIF Southern Section Division III quarterfinal Falcons at Santa Monica tilt at 3:15 p.m., one of the biggest questions is what has changed since they last met? The 28-0 Falcons have won 21 games since they defeated the Vikings, 5-3, on March 17 in the championship game of the High Desert Tournament in Lancaster, grabbing a Pacific League title and claiming the CIF tournament’s No. 1 seed along the way. Santa Monica on the other hand, has gone 15-3 since then, picking up the Ocean View League title in the process.

I was a real estate agent with Coldwell Banker when it had an office on the corner of 9th and Wilshire in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and am now a real estate broker in Glendale. I would like to point out a few problems with rent control that I have not seen addressed previously. When market rents are not allowed when a unit becomes vacant, there is an influx of renters from areas where there is no rent control, like Pasadena, or from areas where market rents are allowed when the unit becomes vacant, like Los Angeles.

SANTA MONICA — For 98 minutes, the improbable seemed possible for the Flintridge Prep's girls' soccer team. Yet, with one bounce of the ball, the Rebels' upset hopes were crushed, as host Santa Monica, the No. 3 seed, scored the game's only goal with two minutes remaining in overtime, ending Flintridge Prep's season with a 1-0 loss in Friday's CIF Southern Section Division III first-round playoff match. "No coach could be prouder of any team," Flintridge Prep Coach Sean Beattie said.

SANTA MONICA — Sona Karakashian and Joyce Librando came up big when their team needed them most. After losing its first two doubles sets, the Glendale High girls' tennis team's No. 1 duo found itself in position to win the match. Karakashian and Librando regrouped to win the final set of the day to propel the Nitros to a 10-8 road victory against Santa Monica on Thursday in a CIF Southern Section Division II wild-card match. Glendale (11-4) will next face host Los Alamitos in a first-round match at 2 p.m. Thursday.

SANTA MONICA — Early in Saturday night’s CIF Southern Section Division I-A girls’ basketball second-round playoff game, both teams came out pressing. Whereas host Santa Monica’s press was of the full-court variety and set a tone of defensive intimidation, the pressure Crescenta Valley applied was mainly to itself. The Falcons couldn’t get acclimated to the intensity of the game early enough to avoid falling into a 15-point hole before scoring their first points just inside the 2:00 mark of the first quarter.

SANTA MONICA ? It was Kali Cancelosi?s turn. With a much-ballyhooed Crescenta Valley High offense, a top-flight defense and fellow junior right-hander Heather Bacon to rotate trips to the circle with, Cancelosi?s still made the most of her chances to shine this season. None were brighter than her performance on Thursday afternoon at Santa Monica, as Cancelosi crafted a three-hit, shutout gem to lift the Falcons past the Vikings, 3-0, in the CIF Southern Section Division III quarterfinals.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - In an ending symbolic of most of the match, the Glendale Community College women's volleyball team got close, but just couldn't catch Santa Monica City College. The Vaqueros rallied from a seven-point deficit, when the Corsairs needed only six more to win, to close to within three in the third game and came all the way back from an early eight-point deficit to tie the fourth game only to be denied a shot at a fifth game when Santa Monica closed out the Western State Conference match, 25-17, 23-25, 25-19, 25-19.

Maybe the first round victory will suffice until next season. Heading into the CIF Southern Section Division I-A playoffs as the No. 15 seed, the Falcons knew they’d have to face No. 2 Santa Monica if they beat West Covina in the first round, and probably at Santa Monica. Unsurprisingly, after Crescenta Valley beat West Covina, the San Antonio league’s No. 3 team, the Falcons had to travel to Santa Monica to face the Vikings. Though they put up a good defense effort, Santa Monica put up a better one and the Vikings defeated the Falcons, 60-30, last Saturday.

With a victory in either of its final two games, the Glendale Community College football team can record a winning season for the first time since 2007. For the Vaqueros to achieve a winning mark, they must do so going through the teeth of their schedule. Glendale will start its journey when it meets host Santa Barbara in a Pacific Conference American Division game at 6 p.m. Saturday. Should Glendale (5-3, 3-2 in the division) lose to Santa Barbara (6-2, 3-2), it would have one last opportunity against host L.A.

SANTA MONICA - After one half of Glendale Community College's football game on the road facing Santa Monica City College, the Vaqueros held a one-point advantage and were two quarters away from ending a double-digit losing streak in American Division Pacific Conference play. But it was not to be, as the offense went dormant in the second half and the Vaqueros were once again plagued by mistakes on special teams, leading to a 44-28 victory Saturday afternoon for the host Corsairs.
