Throughout the regular season, the La Cañada High boys' soccer team was ranked in the top 10 in the CIF Southern Section Division V poll. Several times, the Spartans were the top-ranked team. Shortly after the CIF office unveiled its playoff pairings, La Cañada Coach Alex Harrison learned that the Spartans received the fourth seed after sharing the Rio Hondo League championship with second-seeded South Pasadena. South Pasadena, by virtue of going 1-0-1 against La Cañada in a pair of season head-to-head meetings, garnered the league's No. 1 seed.

Being recognized with an All-CIF Southern Section selection can sometimes be lost on the best of the best in area sports, especially when success is a common occurrence. But with La Cañada High senior outside hitter Kendall Walbrecht, that was hardly the case. Walbrecht was thrilled when she heard she had been named to the All-CIF Division II-AA girls' volleyball first team when it was officially released on Monday afternoon. It was the first such accolade for Walbrecht, who was recently named the Rio Hondo League co-Most Valuable Player.

LA CAÑADA - Offense, defense and pitching complemented one another nicely for the Flintridge Sacred Heart softball team in its nonleague meeting with visiting Immaculate Heart.

Maria Caire paced the Tologs as the starting pitcher, allowing one earned run on seven hits in a complete game showing. The sophomore hurler helped herself and the squad with a pair of stellar defensive plays in the fourth and sixth innings.

PASADENA - In what has been a disappointing season, the La Canada High football had two major objectives heading into the season finale. Needless to say, the first was to win the game and finish on a high note, which the Spartans did with a 42-0 win over Blair at Muir High School Friday night. The second was to make sure senior running back Andy Paynter became the first rusher in seven seasons to run pass the 1,000-yard mark, which he did with a 216-yard performance against the Vikings.

After a historic run to consecutive CIF Southern Section Division V championships, the La Cañada High softball team was unable to finish out the season with the same accomplishments this time around. However, following in the tradition of Spartans stars such as Lauren Cox, Anna Edwards, Catherine Horner and Lauren O'Leary, La Cañada junior utility Olivia Leyva earned All-CIF honors. Released Tuesday afternoon, the All-CIF Southern Section Division IV first team had a spot for Leyva and, despite, his team missing out on the playoffs, Spartans Coach KC Mathews wasn't surprised by the honor.

PASADENA — Thirty-six games into the season and Arroyo Seco Saints Coach Aaron Milam still can't get an accurate read on his team. Milam might have gotten a better read after the Saints suffered a 6-5 loss to the Playa Vista Orioles in an elimination game of the Palomino Southern California Regional Baseball Tournament on Monday night at Jackie Robinson Field. "We are very bipolar when it comes to playing defense," said Milam, whose team committed four errors and will be the third seed from the Southern California Regional in the Palomino West Zone Tournament in Compton beginning Friday.
