La Cañada High girls' cross-country Coach Andy DiConti believes running is the most mentally demanding sport. It was this mental aspect of the sport that likely hindered his team in the CIF Southern Section Division III preliminary race at Mount San Antonio on Saturday. "There were definitely some mental and emotional obstacles," DiConti said. "Physically, I knew we had it, but cross-country is such a mental sport. " Both La Cañada teams needed to place in the top five, or have the sixth-fastest team time, to advance to the CIF finals.

With the biggest win of its season in its back pocket, the 5-0 St. Francis High football team now has something to prove in the Mission League. The Golden Knights will take to the road Friday to face a winless St. Paul team it defeated last year, 34-13, at 7 p.m. “We're excited about moving into league this week. … St. Paul is 0-5 on the season and our approach is that this is a brand new season because it's the beginning of league,” St. Francis Coach Jim Bonds said. “Everyone starts from scratch here, everyone goes 0-0 into league.” With an average 30.2 margin of victory this year, the Knights jumped from sixth to No. 4 in the CIF Southern Section Western Division this week with a 48-14 win over Monrovia, the No. 1 team in the Mid-Valley Division, last Friday.
