NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Whether Flintridge Prep or Westridge, all eyes were on the doubles matchup of Christina Yu and Annie Zaro and Grace Pa and Alyssa Sugemoto. With Westridge clinging to a slim one-set lead, a Flintridge Prep win would tie the match on sets and give the Rebels a win on games. But it wasn’t to be, as Westridge prevailed, 10-8, in Thursday’s Prep League match at Scholl Canyon. Shortly after the match, Rebels Coach Katie Hawkins was quick to tell Zaro and Yu that it wasn’t their set alone that swung the match, the Rebels were all in it together.

LA CANADA - In the jockeying atop the Prep League girls' basketball standings, Flintridge Prep held onto its title of No. 1 contender to four-time reigning league champion Pasadena Poly with perhaps its biggest league victory to date. The CIF Southern Section Division V-AA fourth-ranked Rebels employed an absolutely smothering defense in forcing 27 turnovers and 27% shooting from visiting Division IV-A 12th-ranked Westridge in an important 53-42 victory Thursday afternoon on senior day. The Rebels (14-5 overall, 7-1 in league)

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — There's a chance that the Hoover High girls' tennis team might qualify for the postseason. To accomplish that feat, the Tornadoes will need to finish among the top four teams in what's shaping up to be a wide-open Pacific League. When not participating in a league match, Hoover Coach Julie Hoppe would like for the Tornadoes to compete against difficult opposing squads. The Tornadoes had that opportunity Wednesday against visiting Westridge. In a match that began in sunlight and ended in moonlight, Hoover suffered a 13-5 defeat.

SOUTH PASADENA — Shortly after his second summer league game with the Hoover High girls' basketball team, new Coach Stan Watson was hustling to his third. With four of his players riding along with him, Watson and his squad left behind a 32-26 victory over Westridge at the South Pasadena Summer League. "I'm still in the process of learning names, developing our defensive strategy and learning our offensive sets," said Watson, who replaced Martik Ghookasian as the Tornadoes coach last week, taking over a program that will look to make the postseason for the first time since 2007.

GLENDALE — Entering its final Prep League game of the season Thursday afternoon, the Flintridge Prep softball team had two pieces of business to attend to. First, the Rebels wanted to exact revenge by beating Westridge. If they could accomplish that feat, it would give them a share of the league championship for the first time since 1995. Behind a no-hitter from Denise van der Goot, the Rebels rolled to a 10-0 league home win against Westridge in six innings. Van der Goot struck out 13 and faced the minimum 21 batters.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — They might still be stuck on zero, but there’s been small signs of improvement. That’s the latest evaluation given by Flintridge Prep girls’ water polo Coach Josh Moser, whose team suffered an 11-4 Prep League home loss to Westridge on Thursday afternoon. Flintridge Prep (0-12, 0-8 in league) did some things better Thursday compared to its recent matches, like scoring two man-advantage goals. Still, the Rebels aren’t yet talented enough to overcome mistakes made from their obvious inexperience.

Flintridge Prep lost to Westridge on Tuesday, but that was to be expected. After a few foul-ups and miscommunications by Prep cost them the first game, 12-25, it looked like Westridge was going to sweep easily. ?We did not look good in that first game,? Prep Coach Sean Beattie said, who went on to say that a few of the girls were playing in the first game and playing nervous. ?We were shanking balls hit right at us and overpassing. But after the end of the first, I said, ?Hey, relax.

PASADENA — The Flintridge Prep girls’ soccer team hoped to ride a wave of momentum from a big win on Friday into Saturday’s Prep League contest against Westridge. Rebels Coach Esteban Chavez said his team’s 3-0 win over the Tigers Saturday at Maranatha High came more in spite of the previous day’s monumental defeat of Chadwick than because of it. “We didn’t really take control of the game until the end,” said Chavez, whose team moved closer to solidifying at least a third-place finish in league with the win. “They got drained emotionally, physically and psychologically yesterday because they left everything [on the field]

GLENDALE - In but its fourth year of existence, the Glendale High girls' lacrosse team was able to accomplish something that no other Nitros girls' squad has been able to in more than a decade. Perhaps coming without the pomp and circumstance of some other more established sports, the Nitros simply took care of business and made school history on Friday afternoon with complete dominance and relative ease. Scoring the first six goals of the match, the Nitros rolled to a 14-3 victory over Westridge, as Glendale won its first-ever Pacific League title.

GLENDALE - From an offensive standpoint, 2014 hasn't been kind to the Flintridge Prep girls' soccer team. The Rebels had totaled one goal in racking up two defeats and one tie in three contests heading into Wednesday's Prep League match versus visiting Westridge. Perhaps all Flintridge Prep needed was just a little rest, as the Rebels scored all the offense needed in the first half of a 3-1 Prep League victory over the Tigers at the Glendale Sports Complex. “For the girls, they just finished their midterms and had to deal with that stress.

LA CAÑADA - While half the Prep League was on spring break Thursday afternoon, the other half prepared for the second half of the season with a competitive league tri-league meet at La Cañada High that may have been more hotly contested than expected.

GLENDALE - Having not played a match in 15 days, the Flintridge Prep girls' soccer team took on Westridge on Tuesday and hoped to shake off any cobwebs that might have lingered from the extended time off. The Rebels also had to take the field without standout defender Abby Letts, who was serving a one-game suspension after getting double yellow cards in the team's Prep League contest Jan. 14 against Pasadena Poly. Any notion of Flintridge Prep suffering from rust was dispelled in the first few minutes, as the team scored an early goal.

LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE - A light fog rolled up the hill and onto the pool deck at Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy before the Tologs were set to begin their season Thursday against Westridge. The weather elements initially caught Flintridge Sacred Heart first-year Coach Carlos Ponce off guard, leaving him to wonder how his team would respond to the strange conditions. Ponce's concern immediately disappeared once the whistle blew, as Flintridge Sacred Heart enjoyed a big five-goal first quarter en route to a convincing 18-3 nonleague win. “Fog can throw your mentality off and it can be hard to get up for the game,” said Ponce, who received a match-best seven goals from Hannah Walleck and four from Kelsey Gorman.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - There's plenty of motivation this season for Marel Tavatian. Before embarking on helping the Westridge tennis team try to win a second straight Prep League championship, the No. 1 singles player spent time working on her conditioning. It's helped make a difference during the early portion of the season. Tavatian's work on the court has been impressive as a result. “I've been working on my fitness, and it's helped me improve being quicker,” said Tavatian, who swept her three sets without losing a game Wednesday afternoon in Westridge's 18-0 league win against rival Flintridge Prep at Scholl Canyon Tennis Center.
