The following are updates on area athletes at the collegiate level. Eric Kleinsasser (Crescenta Valley High, 2007) senior, Occidental College cross-country: A three-time reigning Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference cross-country champion, Kleinsasser proved that he is still one of the conference's best.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — For the time being, Glendale Community College men's tennis Coach Bob MacKay would like a more balanced singles lineup. He's confident with Nos. 1 and 2 players Alex Sarkissian and Trevor Campbell, respectively, but would like more consistency from the remainder of the lineup. "We are getting better, but I'd like to see us establish ourselves in the lower part of the lineup," MacKay said after host Glendale college suffered a 6-3 nonconference loss against Occidental College on Saturday afternoon.

LA CRESCENTA — Before the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team tipped off its season Tuesday night, Christian Misi had big plans in store. The expectations might seem a bit demanding, but the junior center would like nothing better than recording a double-double in as many games possible this season. Misi couldn't have asked for a better start in achieving that goal. Misi finished with a game-high 18 points and 13 rebounds to power host Crescenta Valley to an easy 78-55 victory against South Pasadena in a pool-play contest of the Falcon Classic.

SOUTH PASADENA - Just three days after the Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo team dealt South Pasadena a lopsided shutout tournament loss, the Falcons expected it wouldn't be as easy when the Tigers were back for a rematch on Tuesday. South Pasadena, ranked fourth in the latest CIF Southern Section Division III pool, was back at full strength after missing its coach and a handful of starters in the last meeting and this time enjoyed a home pool advantage. Nonetheless, the Falcons, ranked third in Division V, made the first three quarters of Tuesday's nonleaguer look just as one-sided, so much so that all a six-goal fourth quarter could do for the Tigers was make the final 14-8 score more respectable.

SOUTH PASADENA - The next time the Hoover High and South Pasadena wrestling teams meet, they may well be league rivals. For now, the host Tigers enjoyed a 46-36 nonleague victory over the Tornadoes on Thursday afternoon in a nonleague match in which South Pasadena twice led by 30 points. "Hopefully, by the end of this year, we'll be welcoming Hoover to the Rio Hondo League," South Pasadena Coach Al Shuton said. "They have a team and they've been solidifying their numbers.

PASADENA - There aren't many worries when the singles players on the Westridge tennis team step on to the court. Maral Tavatian, Lena Tavatian and Erin McDonald each bring experience and composure, something that's given the rest of the Tigers assurance that they have a legitimate opportunity to win the majority of their matches. It proved to be the case once again Monday afternoon, when Westridge met visiting Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy in a nonleague match at Muir High.

GLENDALE — The following are updates on area athletes at the collegiate level. Luke Collis (St. Francis High, 2007) Occidental College junior quarterback: Having been sidelined for four weeks due to a leg injury, Collis returned and with his return, Occidental defeated rival Whittier, 25-22, in the annual battle for "the shoes," a pair of bronzed cleats bestowed upon the winning team. Of utmost importance, as well, was that Saturday's game was the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference opener for both teams.

The Falcon water polo has had a mixed bag of a preseason. At 7-5, they’ve seen their fair share of victory and defeat. But Wednesday afternoon at South Pasadena High School, the Falcons took charge for a 10-5 win over the Tigers. “Non-league is good because it gives us an opportunity to try strategies and play we don’t normally run,” said Falcon Head Coach Pete Loporchio. “In this game, we got to try some different stuff.” The experimental defense showed in the first quarter that saw only one goal from the Falcons.

SOUTH PASADENA - In its final nonleague football game of the season, Hoover High had a chance to go into a bye week leading into Pacific League play with a winning record. Standing in its way was South Pasadena, which the Tornadoes beat in the final minutes last season. But this year, the Tigers had home field advantage on their side. Hoover stayed with the Tigers through halftime, but the relentless running attack of South Pasadena took its toll and the Tornadoes fell, 21-7, in a game played in the bright sunshine of Friday afternoon in order to finish before the beginning of Yom Kippur at sunset.

SOUTH PASADENA - A five-goal game-ending run by the South Pasadena High boys' water polo team ended hopes of a potentially large upset for visiting Flintridge Prep on Thursday afternoon. The CIF Southern Section Division V fourth-ranked Rebels were even with the Division III fourth-ranked Tigers before being outscored by a five-goal margin in an 11-6 nonleague defeat in the season-opener for the Rebels. “We played well for one half and then our youth showed a little in the second half,” said Rebels assistant coach Jeff Chase, who was filling in for head Coach Dan Hare, who missed the contest for personal reasons.

Robert Adamson got a late start to his senior season with the South Pasadena High boys' volleyball team. The 2012 All-Area and All-Rio Hondo League first-teamer, who figured to be the Tigers' best hitter again, missed the first few weeks of the team's practices with an illness. When the 6-foot-4 opposite hitter joined the team for the first time in 2013, he quickly realized he couldn't take anything for granted. The reason was because of a new addition to the team. Richard Yu, a 6-foot-3 outside hitter, transferred to South Pas from China and quickly showed he'd be giving Adamson a run for bragging rights on the team.

Scott Hong (Glendale Community College, 2011) Occidental baseball senior: Once again, Hong is doing it all for the Tigers. But after leading the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference last season in saves, Hong has taken on the roll as starter when he's not manning the outfield. Hong leads Oxy in both wins and saves, as he's posted a 4-0 record with four saves and has a complete game to his credit. Hong has been brilliant to the tune of a 0.64 earned-run average with 29 strikeouts in 28 1/3 innings to just eight walks.
