LA CAÑADA - There was a point in the first half of her team's game against El Monte High on Saturday night when La Cañada Coach Tamar Hill told her squad that relying on foul shots was not going to get it done. Hill was right. A barrage of three-pointers and stifling defense was a much better course of action. Behind impressive defense and 11 three-pointers, third-seeded La Cañada defeated El Monte, 60-29, at home in the CIF Southern Section Division 3A playoffs' second round, moving on to Wednesday's quarterfinal round.

This Monday, I was privileged to attend a candlelight vigil held in memory of Bobby Salcedo at his alma mater in El Monte. Bobby Salcedo was killed in Gomez Palacio, Mexico, the night before New Year’s Eve. Bobby was out with his family, doing what families do best around that time of year — celebrating, and having some good food. But then all of that changed when gunmen — supposedly tied to a drug cartel somewhere — entered the restaurant where he was eating, dragged him out, along with five other men, and took them away.

Scoring more than 20 points in two quarters gave the Flintridge Prep boys' varsity basketball team the impetus it needed to defeat host San Pedro Mary Star of the Sea, 70-53, in a nonleague game on Monday. The Rebels, who improved to 8-2, traveled to Village Christian on Tuesday for a nonleague game. Results were not available at press time.

A season ago, the Flintridge Prep girls' basketball team went 7-18 and received a surprising at-large bid into the playoffs. Thus, the turnaround orchestrated by first-year co-coaches Kevin Kiyomura and Jayme Kiyomura-Chan has been rather impressive. Evidence to that came Sunday, when the Rebels, after posting a 16-7 record and a second-place finish in the Prep League, were granted the No. 4 seed in the CIF Southern Section Division 5-AA playoffs. “I'm very happy,” said Kiyomura, whose team will host California Military in Thursday's first round at 7 p.m. “Granted, we don't know a whole lot about California Military, but we're really excited about getting in [to the playoffs]

Lauren O'Leary, the ace pitcher of La Cañada High's softball team, went straight to the bullpen after giving up two runs in the third inning in a CIF Southern Section Division V semifinal game against South El Monte. The hurler wanted to refine her delivery in hopes of not having another challenging inning. "We were just trying to get back in sync and work out all the kinks," O'Leary said. Everything started flowing for O'Leary from that point on at her home field. She retired the side in order in the top of the fourth and only allowed just three base runners the rest of the game, guiding the Spartans to a, 6-2, victory Tuesday.

Kira Lee had no intention of resting on her laurels. Lee had just completed a season that not even she could have expected during her freshman year on the Flintridge Prep girls’ tennis team. Yet Lee knew she still had a lot of things to work on if she planned to get to the next level on the competitive stage. Lee went to the Arcadia-based Rusty Miller Tennis Academy, where she continued to develop her game. She also participated in a few junior tournaments. All this after going 49-3 and being tabbed the Prep League’s co-Player of the Year.
