Pack 519 Den Enjoys Kayaking, Swimming & Hiking Sam Davidson, Shaun Haupt, Brock Hudnut, Graham Miketta, Eric Schreckengast, & Nathan Spindle (Den 2 members) Our den loved the camping trip we took to Catalina. First we got up at 5:30 in the morning. Then we took cars from PCY and drove to the Catalina Express. When the boat started to go we looked over the edge and the water was splashing really hard. When we got to the island, we sailed on the Davidsons' boat from the dock to where we camped.

LA CAÑADA - St. Francis High soccer Coach Glen Appels has seen Loyola soccer teams that may have had better individual players, but this year's squad might be the deepest and most balanced Cubs team that his Golden Knights have come across in the 25 years that he's been at the helm. The Cubs, the top-ranked team in CIF Southern Section Division I, showed off their strength and depth in the second meeting between the longtime rivals this season. Loyola scored a goal six minutes into the contest and added two more within the first four minutes of the second half en route to running away with a 5-0 Mission League victory Wednesday at St. Francis' Friedman Field.

Sacred Heart, 0-1, played Flintridge Prep at Scholl Canyon on Sept. 12 and battled La Cañada at the Fremont Tennis Center last Thursday.
