GLENDALE - It had been 10 years since the Glendale Community College football team had matched up with San Bernardino Valley College, which traveled to Sartoris Field Saturday. The Vaqueros may not mind if it's another decade until they meet again after the Wolverines defeated them, 35-0, at Sartoris Field. San Bernardino's offense vastly outproduced Glendale in the game, as the Wolverines racked up 500 yards of total offense compared to GCC's 54, including 200 to 16 through the air and 300 to 38 on the ground.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — The Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy volleyball team will find out who its first-round playoff opponent will be Sunday. One certainty is that the Tologs will not face Mission League archrival Harvard-Westlake in the opening round. After what took place Thursday night, the Tologs are probably relieved. Flintridge Sacred Heart closed out its regular season with a 25-14, 25-10, 25-16 league loss to visiting Harvard-Westlake. Harvard-Westlake (10-0 in league)

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — The setting was different, but the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team had been in the exact same spot before — up a goal on Harvard-Westlake, with plenty of soccer left to be played. But whereas a momentary lapse allowed the Wolverines to come back and earn a tie on Jan. 6 at Harvard-Westlake, this time the Tologs filled the final 44 minutes of Monday night’s Mission League rematch with pretty near flawless soccer from end to end of Sartoris Field.

NORTH HOLLYWOOD - Perhaps it's not an understatement to say that the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls' volleyball team ran into its biggest impediment toward a Mission League championship at host Harvard-Westlake. While the Wolverines' tall frontline presented several issues for the Tologs, maybe no obstacle was bigger than the “mental road block” Flintridge Sacred Heart seems incapable of overcoming as was evident in a 25-21, 25-13, 25-18 league sweep for Harvard-Westlake on Tuesday evening.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — There would likely be nothing sweeter for the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls’ volleyball team than to exact some revenge on the Harvard-Westlake squad that foiled it at every turn during its championship-or-bust 2007 campaign. With the 2008 Wolverines looking every bit as strong as the version that edged the Tologs for the Mission League and CIF Southern Section Division I-A titles a season ago, that simply may not happen this year. It didn’t come close to happening on Tuesday night, as the Tologs fell to the Wolverines, 25-22, 25-15, 25-20, at Sacred Heart.

St. Francis High junior boys’ tennis standout Vinni Lodolo made history on Wednesday afternoon at the Studio City Tennis Center. Lodolo broke Harvard-Westlake’s decade-long streak of Mission League individual champions when he won the league singles crown. He bested Wolverines No. 2 singles player Matt Wagner, 6-3, 3-6, 10-4 for the championship. In the semifinal, which he advanced to a season prior, Lodolo, the tournament’s top seed, defeated Wolverines No. 3 player Andrew Berman, 6-1, 6-0. A Harvard-Westlake player had won the tournament every year since 1998.

LA CANADA-FLINTRIDGE ? There were no doubt a few scouts from other Rio Hondo League schools sprinkled into the stands at Spartan Stadium Friday night hoping to sniff out any weakness in La Cañada High's game. There can also be no doubt that those scouts left licking their chops with more than a few pages of notes following the Spartans' 38-14 collapse at the hands of Harvard-Westlake. Aside from the dependable play of running back Lavelle Peterson, who managed 195 yards rushing and two touchdowns in 21 carries, La Cañada's numerous vulnerabilities held center stage for most of the night.

Charles Rich NORTH HOLLYWOOD -- Think of the Harvard-Westlake High girls' volleyball team as a shiny new Lamborghini traveling at a high rate of speed on the San Diego Freeway. About the only object possibly capable of stopping such a powerful force these days would be a police spike strip. If only La Canada could have been such a deterrent Tuesday when it faced the Wolverines, the seventh ranked team in the state, in a CIF Southern Section Division IIIAA semifinal match.

Jim Riggio LA CANADA HIGH -- Stoping Russell Lakey is one way to beat the Harvard-Westlake boys' basketball team. La Canada High at times did a good job of that. But what the Spartans couldn't do was hold both Lakey and his teammates down, as the Wolverines ended the Spartans' season with a 70-51 CIF Southern Section Division IIIAA victory. "The biggest problem is they have the other shooters," La Canada Coach Tom Hofman said. "You have to make the other kids beat you and they did."

STUDIO CITY - Whether or not anyone within the Pacific League or CIF Southern Section Division V will stop the Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo team from repeating as CIF Southern Section divisional champion will not be determined for weeks. In the meanwhile, the Falcons had no problems demonstrating that they could play in another stratum, as Division V second-ranked Crescenta Valley was at times dominant in frustrating and ultimately defeating Division III No. 2 Harvard-Westlake, 15-9, on the road Wednesday afternoon.

LA CAÑADA - Nearly 1,900 feet above sea level, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls' volleyball program knows a little something about altitude. And it was all about attitude that put the Tologs in rarefied air Thursday evening. For the first time in seven years and 15 consecutive matches, Flintridge Sacred Heart defeated rival Harvard-Westlake, 25-23, 25-27, 25-21, 25-19 to split leadership atop the Mission League standings and at least put the Tologs on track for a share of the program's first league crown since 2006.

If you're looking forward to a film about a North American weasel or a fullback from the University of Michigan, look elsewhere. However, unless you've been on a meditative retreat for the last decade and a half, you doubtless already know that "The Wolverine" is another installment in the ongoing "X-Men" franchise, with Hugh Jackman assaying the title role for the sixth time. 2009's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" showed us the young Wolverine/Logan; the new film shows us the oldest Wolverine yet. He may look 40ish, but he's actually a very well-preserved 150?

LOS ANGELES - When the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy swimming team took its seat atop the Mission League back last year, it did so with depth. It takes a different approach this year for the Tologs, who relied on their stars of Kirsten Vose, Katie Altmayer, Emily Balog and Kate Herrill to deliver a 99-84 victory over host Harvard-Westlake in a league dual meet Tuesday at Loyola High. That foursome started the meet with a win and CIF Southern Section Division I postseason consideration time in the 200-yard medley of 1 minute, 54.39 seconds and at least one member of that group had a hand in all nine of the Tologs' wins on the day. Flintrdge Sacred Heart won just five events in a 99-77 win over Harvard Westlake last season.

NORTH HOLLYWOOD - Trailing by 26 points with less than 11 minutes remaining, the St. Francis High football team finally got back on track. A couple of recovered onside kicks led to two touchdowns. And the Golden Knights had one last chance to complete a miraculous comeback, but saw their bid fall short in the closing seconds. “It was a valiant effort and they fought to the end,” said St. Francis Coach Jim Bonds, whose team suffered a 41-36 road Mission League loss against Harvard-Westlake on Friday night.

Kaplanyan scored a game-tying goal to complete a comeback from down five goals and send the Tornadoes' CIF Southern Section Division IV quarterfinal match against Palm Desert at Burbank High to overtime moments after a timekeeping error resulted in a replay of the final 30 seconds.
