The Tologs got a game-high 18 points from Vanessa Romero and 15 more from Amanda Erwin, as they were able to firmly secure a double-digit fourth-quarter lead and take away a 55-39 victory. ?I just felt the conditioning definitely showed up tonight for us and we were able to execute our defense in the fourth quarter,?

LOS ANGELES - Before the season began, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team was upfront about its goal of finishing in the top three in the Mission League and earning a return trip to the postseason. At that same time, coach Cesar Hidalgo also conceded it was going to “be tough.” The coach's words have been prophetic. On Wednesday at Occidental College's Patterson Field, the going got even tougher, as Flintridge Sacred Heart scored first but could not hold the lead, falling, 3-1, to Alemany and putting the hopes of reaching the playoffs into serious jeopardy with four league contests to go.

For the first time in two years, a La Cañada-area team didn't find itself hoisting a CIF Southern Section championship at the end of the 2012-13 seasons. The year was instead highlighted by individual success. It was in the pool where the most success occurred for locals with individuals from Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy and Flintridge Prep bringing CIF-SS titles home from Riverside City College in the CIF Southern Section Division I swimming finals and Division III diving championships.

Ten Years Ago In a move that apparently caught school officials off guard, La Cañada High School 7/8 Principal Gaylene van Zijll abruptly submitted her resignation and cleared out her desk on a Wednesday evening just seven weeks before the end of the school year. Although they expressed surprise, district officials, citing a personnel matter, did not offer any insight into the principal's departure.  Twenty Years Ago Coached by Tom Parker, the La Cañada High School varsity softball team clinched the Rio Hondo League title for the second time in three years.  Thirty Years Ago When the La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation held its 1983 fundraiser at Descanso Gardens, themed "Evening at the Green," guests enjoy hors d'oeuvres prepared by students in Helen Lievre's Foods I and II classes at La Cañada High.

It wasn't too long ago when coach Rich Wheeler helped set up the La Cañada High girls' golf team for its inaugural season. That occurred in 2010, when Wheeler and assistant Richard Tetu searched around campus to find potential golfers. After finding a formidable cast of athletes willing to learn and continue to sharpen their skills, Wheeler is now set to coach a couple of the original players for their senior seasons. “Where did the time go?” said Wheeler, whose team took third in the Pacific League behind Crescenta Valley and Arcadia and tied for 15th at the CIF Southern Section Central Team Divisional in 2012.

LOS ANGELES - It would be easy to look at a roster that features as many freshmen - three - as it does seniors, and conclude the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team is lacking in experience. But the Tologs showed from the start on Saturday afternoon at Occidental College that the new faces aren't having any trouble integrating with the veterans. Freshman Sophia Saldivar found senior captain Casey Basso on the other end of a 36-yard free kick in the eighth minute and Basso sent the ball up and over St. Lucy's goalkeeper Victoria Perez to spur Flintridge Sacred Heart to a 1-0 victory.
