Highlights were hard to come by during Tuesday afternoon's Crescenta Valley High at Hoover boys' tennis match. The Falcons notched their second league win of the year, but injuries continued to take their toll. And after Crescenta Valley's 11-7 victory against Hoover, it was the negatives that were being talked about before any positives. Frustration boiled over when Hoover singles player Hayk Muradyan began shouting at Crescenta Valley Coach Sarah Wiggins during a set. Harsh words between Muradyan and some Falcons players also ensued, before being quelled.

Crescenta Valley tennis is facing a variety of difficulties this year. Yesterday the La Cañada Spartans proved to be one of them. The Falcons lost 11-7, posting four wins in doubles competition and three singles sets. "It's going to be tough," Crescenta Valley Head Coach Sarah Wiggins said. The Falcons' Pacific League was amended this season, placing them in a tougher bracket of competition. Added teams also means there are more matches to be played ? a dilemma that resulted in upping the season's start date more than two weeks.

GLENDALE — Three years since the Pacific League had its major makeover, which included the addition of two teams, many of the coaches have stated that there hasn’t been ample time for the teams to schedule nonleague opponents before beginning competition in the seven-team league. Unfortunately for many of the Pacific League coaches, including Crescenta Valley High’s Sarah Wiggins, there’s isn’t much that can be done to change that since the season just began last week.

LA CRESCENTA — For Sarah Wiggins, the result of Thursday afternoon's Pacific League tennis match versus Burroughs wasn't quite as crucial as continuing to progress her young team moving forward. The coach of the Crescenta Valley boys' tennis squad went with the strategic move of focusing her resources and attention on doubles play and trying new things for upcoming matches, figuring that defending Pacific League co-champion Burroughs would dominate singles play and ultimately win. And the Indians were plenty dominant, giving up four singles games total and taking all nine sets from Crescenta Valley, which didn't fare as well as Wiggins wanted in the 14-4 lopsided league win for visiting Burroughs.

GLENDALE — Without question, the Crescenta Valley High boys’ tennis team ran into its toughest opponent this season. Unfortunately for Crescenta Valley, it came a bit too early in the CIF Southern Section Division II playoffs. The Falcons saw their season conclude Thursday afternoon with a 16-2 road loss to second-seeded Diamond Bar in a first-round match. Crescenta Valley (10-7) opened its playoff run Tuesday with a 10-8 wild-card road victory against Etiwanda.

GLENDALE — The chances were there initially for the members of the Crescenta Valley High boys’ tennis team to make things interesting in the first round. Instead, they came away with nothing. In their CIF Southern Section Division II opening-round road match against host Villa Park on Wednesday afternoon, the Falcons had stayed close with the Spartans in most of the first-round sets. However, Crescenta Valley Coach Sarah Wiggins spotted a trend. “We were looking at possibly being at 3-3, but we lost a lot of deuces,” said Wiggins, whose team saw its season conclude with a 12-6 defeat.

GLENDALE — Though there will be a new coach on board, the concept will remain the same for the members of the Crescenta Valley High girls' tennis team. After taking over the program in 1995 and leading the Falcons to nine Pacific League championships, veteran Coach Tom Gossard retired following last season. Gossard's squads finished no worse than second in league, leading to instant respectability in the area and region. Now, Sarah Wiggins, Gossard's successor, will look to uphold the tradition.

LA CRESCENTA ? After weeks of leading up to arguably one of the best rivalries in the Pacific League, the Crescenta Valley High and Arcadia boys? tennis teams finally matched up. The Falcons have been finding their way through the first few weeks by mixing and matching lineup combinations, while the Apaches possessed a fundamentally sound squad capable of pulling away in the blink of an eye. With the teams set to compete in the first of two matches this season, Arcadia got a better challenge than many might have expected.
