PASADENA - Kevin Mejia grew up learning the game of soccer at Launch Sports camps and clinics. Now, the 21-year-old Pasadena resident plays for Boston College. Mejia hasn't forgotten where he developed as a player. He's doing what he can to pay back Launch Sports, Inc. - a soccer training, rehabilitation and skill development organization based in Monrovia - by helping run its summer camps, one of which ran Monday to Friday at the Rose Bowl. "I'm just happy to lend a hand," said Mejia, a junior striker for the Eagles and former student at Marshall Fundamental.

After months of debate and multiple arborist assessments, the La Cañada Flintridge City Council voted three to two to authorize the removal a dying oak tree located in the city’s right-of-way at 4341 Encinas Drive. The decision came at the city council meeting on Monday, with Mayor Laura Olhasso and councilmembers Gregory Brown and David Spence voting in favor of the removal, and Mayor Pro Tem Donald Voss and councilmember Steve Del Guercio voting in opposition. The tree, a Coast live oak, or Quercus agrifolia , is one of five species of trees protected by the city’s tree ordinance.

While prognostications of a third consecutive CIF Southern Section championship were not exactly at the forefront leading into last season, missing out on the postseason all together was, indeed, a disappointment for the La Cañada High softball team. Having returned seven starters from a team that had been a part of a Spartans squad which won its second straight CIF Southern Section Division V championship in 2012, the 2013 Spartans struggled in the circle, found themselves in a dogfight for Rio Hondo League standing and, ultimately, missed out on the postseason just as did neighboring Flintridge Prep and Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy.

The La Cañada Flintridge City Council voted 5 to 0 Monday to uphold an appeal and preserve a heritage oak at 1240 Padres Trail that had been scheduled for removal. The tree was one of five identified for extraction by the city's contracted arborist firm, West Coast Arborists, and the Public Works Department because of safety concerns, said Gonzalo Venegas, superintendent of facilities and maintenance. Rebecca Mejia, of West Coast Arborists, stated in an April report that the tree's co-dominant, or split trunk, could cause it to fail.

Pitching had paved the way to the La Cañada High softball team winning the past two CIF Southern Section Division V championships. Things will look a lot different this year without the benefit of a proverbial ace, like the Spartans enjoyed over the past three-plus years with Lauren O'Leary and Lauren Cox, and in a move up to Division IV. “I do think we have some pieces that are going to fit into place, step in and do a job for us,” La...

SOUTH PASADENA - The difference between victor and victim may have simply come down to offsides traps in Wednesday afternoon's Rio Hondo League boys' soccer contest at South Pasadena High. The host Tigers tried to slow La Cañada with an aggressive offsides trap that instead led to a big hole via two second-half goals and an eventual triumph for the Spartans, 4-2. "We've been out-hustled in the last couple of games and didn't want that to happen again," Spartans Coach Alex Harrison said.

While the goal at the CIF Southern Section divisional cross-country preliminaries at Mt. San Antonio College is to advance to the divisional championships, there were also several interesting sidebars Saturday. Perhaps the most prominent local race was the girls' Division IV second heat, where 11th-ranked Flintridge Sacred Heart upset second-ranked Mayfield, 51-55. "I'm pretty sure Mayfield was hiding some runners, but that didn't take away from the fact we ran well," Tologs Coach Kirk Nishiyama said.
