With only two tough opponents ? Eagle Rock tonight, and the ever-aggressive Harvard-Westlake ? left in the pre-season, Head Coach Rich Wheeler and his La Cañada Spartans? best chance for their first victory of the season came against Gabrielino last Friday night. Despite the threat of rain showers, the Spartans dominated at the start of the contest and defeated the host Gabrielino Eagles easily, 19-7. Wheeler was quite ecstatic after the game, but specified that everything from now on would be uphill.

STUDIO CITY - Career victory No. 400 continues to remain elusive for St. Francis High soccer Coach Glen Appels. While the veteran coach, who has guided the Golden Knights to three CIF Southern Section championships and one CIF Southern California Division II Regional Championship since taking over the program in 1989, would like to achieve the milestone, he's more concerned about the Golden Knights getting on track in the Mission League. “I'm not worried [about getting the 400th career victory]

LA CAÑADA - As the third-ranked team in the latest CIF Southern Section Division III-A poll, the St. Francis High basketball team appears on the verge of qualifying for the postseason in a couple of weeks. However, all isn't quite steady of late for the Golden Knights. They have slipped during the second half of Mission League play and have looked to gain some traction leading up to the final three league games. St. Francis mustered only 25 second-half points and suffered a 64-57 league home loss against Harvard-Westlake on Friday night in front of a noisy crowd.

"I don't even know how to explain it," said senior defensive specialist Tina Orlandini of Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy's varsity volleyball team, after her team's 3-0 loss to Harvard-Westlake last Thursday. The Wolverines, who are currently tied for first with Sacred Heart in the Mission League standings with 7-1 records, played host to the Tologs, but the visitor's stay was cut short with a three-game upset, 25-19, 25-11 and 25-13. Disappointment and frustration marked the faces of the Sacred Heart players, who had previously defeated Harvard-Westlake, their toughest competitor, 3-1when they last met on Oct. 10. With the regular season quickly coming to an end, it was a significant loss for Sacred Heart, whose defense did not appear to have its usual cohesiveness, a token ingredient necessary to beat a team like Harvard-Westlake.

North Hollywood Harvard-Westlake shut out the visiting Flintridge Sacred Heart varsity soccer team, 2-0, in the Mission League finale last Friday. The Wolverines won their fourth consecutive league title while the Tologs, who are now 16-4-4 overall and finished 4-2-4 in league, came in second. However, Sacred Heart will still be going to the CIF playoffs this Saturday, something that it hasn't done before. The Tologs will travel to Los Alamitos, which took second place in the Sunset League, this Saturday for a CIF Southern Section Division I first round lower bracket match.

As tens of thousands of high school seniors clamor to catch the eye of someone in Harvard University's admissions office, one La Cañada High School student is resting easily in the knowledge that she has already been accepted through the school's Early Action program. Senior Dahlia Kaki, president of the LCHS Athletic Leadership Council and student representative on the La Cañada Unified School District Governing Board , heard last month she'd been one of 992 applicants invited to attend Harvard in the fall.

In a tradition dating back 80 years, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy graduates wore white dresses and gloves and held bouquets of red roses as they graduated from high school on Sunday. More than 1,500 guests watched the 97 members of the Class of 2012 in the ceremony at Crane Field, with the San Gabriel Mountains serving as the backdrop. On the same day, 96 seniors at Flintridge Preparatory School graduated before friends and family at the Pasadena Convention Center. Sacred Heart Valedictorian Nora Welsh, 18, spoke of the values the school imprinted on the Class of 2012 for the past four years, but also how the girls contributed to Sacred Heart traditions in their own way. “We are a challenging class,” said Welsh.

The members of the St. Francis High football team more than held their own during the nonleague portion of their scheduling, going 5-0 and limiting opponents to 6.8 points per game. Looking to replicate that in the Mission League might be a tall order, though the Golden Knights appear to be up to the challenge. St. Francis will get its first look at a league opponent when it meets visiting Harvard-Westlake in a league opener at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Friedman Field. The Golden Knights are ranked No. 4 in the latest CIF Southern Section Western Division poll and one of four league teams earning a top-10 ranking.

NORTH HOLLYWOOD — With a victory needed to clinch an automatic playoff berth, the St. Francis High football team left nothing to chance and wasted no time in determining its own fate. On the strength of a 24-point first half and scoring on its first six drives overall, the Golden Knights trumped host Harvard-Westlake, 34-14, Friday night in both team's Mission League finale. "It couldn't have come at a better time," said St. Francis Coach Jim Bonds of his team's performance, which put the Golden Knights at 6-4 and 3-2 in league and clinched a postseason berth that will be unveiled with Sunday's CIF Southern Section Western Division pairings.

The La Cañada High boys' water polo team dug itself a hole it couldn't swim out of in its first home match of the season Tuesday against visiting Harvard-Westlake at Pasadena City College. The Spartans surrendered four unanswered goals in the first five minutes of the match. They ended up making it a close contest, but couldn't win, as they fell, 12-10, in their first big test of the season. The Spartans went on to score four goals in the last two minutes of the first period, but were unable to close the deficit as the Wolverines answered with four goals of their own. "I wasn't too happy with our execution in the first period," Spartans Coach German Lopez said.

When teams play in the preseason, the games test what each team is capable of doing. In the case of Head Coach Tamar Hill and the La Cañada varsity girls? basketball squad Tuesday evening at Harvard-Westlake, it was a challenge going up against a team who had won five of their last seven league championships. Hill and her team could not rebound from a rather shaky start of the contest and dropped a 49-37 loss to the Wolverines. Overall, the Spartans now post a 3-2 record, and Hill felt that the team has to play one game to beat their opponents, and not a Jekyll-and-Hyde, on-again-off-again seesaw game.
