Everyone knew its season and championship would be on the line in just about 24 hours, but the Crescenta Valley 9-10 All-Star softball team never talked about the elephant on the field during a Saturday morning practice. CV Coach Mark Bitetti spent practice reinforcing the basics of the game: hitting, fielding and throwing. Not once did he bring up the team's rematch with the District 58 and Section 9 champion Tri-Valley in the final round of the Southern California Championship Divisional tournament Sunday at 4 p.m. at Harvey Field in Jurupa Valley.

JURUPA VALLEY - On two occasions Wednesday night, the Crescenta Valley 9-10 All-Stars softball team appeared on the verge of having its game called because of the 10-run mercy rule. In both occasions, Crescenta Valley fought off the contest being abbreviated before launching a late comeback bid. Unfortunately for Crescenta Valley, its attempt to come back fell short in an 18-14 loss against Tri-Valley in a Southern California Championship Divisional winner's-bracket game at Harvey Field.

Judy Szues used a secret weapon Saturday during her victorious 1,500-meter race at the Tri-Valley Special Olympics in La Crescenta. “I kept my head up,” the 41-year-old said. Cheers of “You can do it!” and “High five!” rang across the Susan Osborne field Saturday at Crescenta Valley High School as 150 special-needs children and adults competed in the first Special Olympics Games put on by Crescenta Valley Committed to Athletic Needs. The event’s organizer, Grace Chaise, said more than 500 volunteers had turned out, far exceeding her expectation of 200. “What we’ve done is pair up two volunteers with each athlete,” she said.

Peter Samore GLENDALE HIGH-Gifted athletes received an opportunity to showcase their talents Saturday at Glendale High. The 2000 Tri-Valley Special Olympic Games featured displays of intense competition and athleticism - and, of course, good sportsmanship - from more than 700 athletes with mental disabilities. Glendale, Burbank and North Hollywood comprise the Tri-Valley. Athletes from Santa Clarita and Sylmar also participated. Though the Special Olympics feature athletes as young as 15 years old in regular competition - and 6 months in activities known as the 'Mini-Meet' - the Tri-Valley Games bring back several competitors year after year.
