Edgar Melik-Stepanyan Michelle Greco can now call herself a champion. The 1998 Crescenta Valley High graduate was on the court when the Seattle Storm captured the 2004 WNBA championship Tuesday night. Greco played the final minute of the Storm's 74-60 victory against the Connecticut Sun at Key Arena in the third game of the finals. Betty Lennox, who scored 23 points in the third game after scoring 27 in Game Two, was chosen the most valuable player of the finals.

Michelle Greco was back at Crescenta Valley High School last Friday for the fourth annual Alumni Game just months after her team, the Seattle Storm, won the WNBA championship. The 1998 graduate had not played in the previous three alumni games because she was playing professionally Europe, so she never had the chance, though she has always wanted to. "I'm very excited to be back here at the high school I spent four great years at," said Greco. Greco is, and forever will be, one of the best players to ever grace Crescenta Valley High, and that goes for males and females.

Hamlet Nalbandyan From La Crescenta to Seattle -- with stops in Westwood, Cleveland, Israel and Greece, in between -- Michelle Greco's dream finally became a reality. The 24-year-old Crescenta Valley High graduate will be a member of the Seattle Storm this season, as WNBA teams submitted their final roster of 11 active and a maximum of two inactive players Wednesday. Greco signed with the Storm -- one of 13 franchises in the WNBA -- on April 27 as a free agent, and entered camp as one of 18 players.

PHILIPPINE BASKETBALL ASSN. Name: Mark Caguioa Team: Ginebra Kings Local Ties: Glendale Community College, 2000 This Season: Much like last season, Caguioa's numbers are among the best in the league. Unfortunately, outside of the efforts of teammate Eric Menk (21.5 points per game), Caguioa hasn't had much to smile about, as the Kings are 7-11 in the Fiesta Conference entering Sunday's game against the Santa Lucia Realtors. Caguioa ranks among the conference's top 20 in scoring (14.9 per game, seventh)

Hamlet Nalbandyan Michelle Greco wasn't the only one who was anxious about her homecoming to Los Angeles. Among the crowd of 8,652 at Staples Center on Tuesday night were two proud parents who tried their best to hide their nerves before tip-off between the host Los Angeles Sparks and Seattle Storm. "I'm probably more nervous than she is," said John Greco, the father of arguably the best female basketball player in area history. Michelle Greco, who graduated from Crescenta Valley High in 1998 as the program's all-time career scoring leader with 2,397 points, returned to Los Angeles for the first time as a WNBA player.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan With a change of clothes close by, Michelle Greco walked in the Crescenta Valley High gymnasium Monday, hugged old friends and joined the fun of a weeklong camp. Never mind the fact that Greco's flight from Seattle had arrived at Los Angeles International Airport less than two hours earlier. Or that she didn't get any sleep Sunday. The 1998 CV graduate was back in town to run the second annual Michelle Greco Girls' Basketball Camp, which actually started six years ago as the Crescenta Valley Youth Basketball Camp, when Greco, then a freshman on the UCLA women's basketball team, was the unofficial coordinator.

As a young girl playing basketball, Michelle Greco did not always have the easiest path. Trying to learn and improve at a game still geared toward boys at the time, Greco often attended basketball camps where she was one of only a handful of girls there. Of course, that didn't stop her from later having tremendous basketball success at Crescenta Valley High School, UCLA, and overseas. Nor did it stop her from making it to the WNBA and winning a championship with the Seattle Storm.

Amirah Leonard is a teacher, coach and role model for the girls' varsity basketball team at Crescenta Valley High School. She also appears on the sometimes shocking NBC TV program, "Fear Factor." In fact, her team and the entire La Crescenta community can see her latest performance on Monday at 8 p.m. "I can't tell you what I will be doing on the show," she said. "You have to just watch and see." Her appearance on the reality TV program in which contestants are persuaded to perform unusual feats is not a total departure for Leonard, who has racked up some amazing performances on the basketball court.
