Hamlet Nalbandyan There has definitely been plenty of hoopla surrounding Village Christian softball pitcher Lauren Nydam during her high school career. And thus far, the La Canada Flintridge resident is showing she's worthy of all the attention. The 6-foot right-handed hurler, whose pitching coach Heather Lindstrom predicted would be one of the finest pitchers ever from this area, has put up the numbers and collected the accolades that suggest she just might be. The sophomore's recent honor is a first-team nod on the All-CIF Southern Section Division V team, the second in as many years for Nydam.

Erik Boal Odds and ends from the local high school girls' tennis scene: Battle tested: Barring a total collapse, the Crescenta Valley High girls' tennis team will win its fourth straight Pacific League title. Glendale and La Canada should be in strong position to secure CIF Southern Section postseason berths and Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy will be battling Sherman Oaks Notre Dame for the final playoff spot in the tough Mission League. But even if it doesn't qualify for the playoffs, the award for the most improved team this year is without a doubt Flintridge Prep.

LOS ANGELES ? With right around three minutes remaining in a contest that had never really been one, the clock finally began to run. Right around a minute earlier and the Price starting five had finally exited the game. Right around a minute earlier than the exit, Price center Terron Sutton was on the receiving end of an inbound alley-oop pass that he promptly dunked for a crowd-inciting 55th point to Renaissance Academy's 19. Maybe Price ran up the score. Maybe it was just playing its game and getting ready for another trip to a state championship.
