Sister Bernadette was from Coffey's Cross Bridge, a small town in County Uibh Fhaili, Ireland. She once was a remarkable teacher, but because of age, in the 1950s she led the Friday rosary At Saint Frances of Rome. Sister Bernadette was my brother's first-grade teacher. One cold morning in the fall of 1959, in her rich Irish brogue, Sister Bernadette beseeched, "Children, bow your heads; pray that God gives our beloved Notre Dame a victory over USC. " The following day, Notre Dame beat USC, 16-6.

The LCHS girls volleyball team dominated the court in their game against Notre Dame last Friday, playing near impeccably throughout and sweeping, 25-18, 25-14, 25-17. The first game went by quickly on the La Canada side of the court. Wherever the ball was, Tara Rallis, team libero, was sure to be under it, or hovering nearby to make sure it never touched the floor. LC quickly took the game at 25-18. Game two was as successful as the first. All the girls were playing at their optimum level, and never once let up their game.

The St. Francis junior varsity football team's defense played extremely well, but early offensive miscues led to a 9-0 Sherman Oaks Notre Dame victory last Friday night at St. Francis High . The game was also marred by an inordinate number of penalties against both teams, including a crucial 15-yard penalty in the second quarter that thwarted a scoring drive by St. Francis. In the first quarter, St. Francis took possession at its own 24-yard line. On the first offensive play, a fumble led to nine-yard loss that placed the Golden Knights at their own 15-yard line.

LA CAÑADA - There were several caveats to take into account as the Flintridge Prep boys' basketball team ventured into this year's postseason. Just like last year, when the postseason run extended to the CIF Southern Section Division VAA semifinals followed by an invitation to the state tournament, the Rebels came in champions of the Prep League. But this season, the Rebels had bumped up a division to IVA and were sure to face tougher competition.
