 For the first half, things couldn't have looked better for the members of the Renaissance Academy basketball team. With a 10-point lead and eyeing a return trip to the semifinals, Renaissance Coach Sid Cooke didn't rule out Pasadena Poly's experienced players having the ability to play better. Cooke was spot on with his assessment, while watching his team struggle on offense in the second half. Fifth-seeded Renaissance mustered just 17 second-half points and saw its season come to an end Tuesday night in a 55-51 home loss against fourth-seeded Pasadena Poly in a CIF Southern Section Division V-A quarterfinal contest.

Even though the Pasadena Poly and Flintridge Prep boys' volleyball teams enjoyed different levels of success during the 2012 season, both squads were nearly on even footing on the Prep League awards list. The Prep League runner-up Panthers garnered four total awards, including senior Michael Saeta being named the co-most valuable player along with Chadwick's James Lenihan, while the fourth-place Rebels merited three total selections on the first and second teams. "Taking a look at the season, I definitely believe there are areas where we could have improved and matches we could have won," Poly first-year Coach Mark Mina said.

Parents and grandparents had a twinkle in their eyes, as the Palm Crest Elementary School kindergarteners excitedly entered the cafeteria Friday morning to perform their holiday songs. There was not an empty seat, with many guests having to stand. Following the lead of Maggie Landau, one of the kindergarten teachers, and accompanied by Mariella Nybakken, teacher's assistant, playing the piano, the kinder Panthers sang Jingle Bells, We Wish You A Merry Christmas, Angel Band, Up On The House Top, Candles of Hanukkah, Joyous Chanukah and It's A Small World.

PASADENA - Maybe no factor was as pivotal to success and failure in Wednesday afternoon's nonleague baseball game between visiting La Cañada High and Pasadena Poly than was defense. Both teams combined for four errors, two wild pitches and a few other gaffes in a game the Spartans rallied to claim, 3-2. La Cañada scored the winning run in the top of fifth on one of the game's few clutch hits, when senior Derek Georgino singled to center off reliever Caleb Lee to score sophomore Johnny Selsor.

By Mark Gero Anticipating a closely fought contest against Pasadena Poly in their annual homecoming game, Coach Brad Miller and his Flintridge Prep Rebels had to contend with numerous turnovers that led to their second straight Prep League loss to the visiting Panthers, 41-7, at La Cañada High last Saturday night. The beginning of the contest went well for Prep who capitalized on an early Poly fumble that led to Nick Ziemann scoring on a five- yard run in the first quarter.

The Pasadena Poly varsity football team, taking control of the game from the opening drive, easily routed visiting Flintridge Prep, 34-0, last Saturday afternoon at Babcock Field. The Rebels, who fell to 1-6 overall and to 0-3 in the Prep League, will not only not repeat at CIF Division XIII champions, they won't even make the playoffs this season. Mercifully, Prep has a bye this week and will conclude its season next Friday with a 2:30 p.m. league contest at Webb School in Claremont.

Host Pasadena Poly scored only one touchdown in the first quarter of its Prep League game against Flintridge Prep last Saturday afternoon.

Prep fell to 3-5 overall and to 1-3 in league while Poly improved to 7-1 overall and to 4-0 in league play. The Rebels will travel to Malibu High tomorrow (Friday) to face Calabasas Viewpoint High at 7 p.m. for the final regular contest of the season.

PASADENA - Earlier this season, Flintridge Prep and Pasadena Poly matched up in girls' basketball and the Rebels, in their league opener, brought to an end the visiting Panthers' 41-game Prep League winning streak - but not until the hosts absorbed a last-second three pointer by Poly that forced overtime before Flintridge Prep secured the win. It was round two Tuesday evening, this time on the Panthers' home floor and the sequel almost produced the...

LA CAÑADA - To begin this new year's Prep League campaign, the Flintridge Prep girls' team drew a tall assignment hosting perennial powerhouse Pasadena Poly, which came in riding a 10-game win streak over the Rebels and a 41-game Prep league winning streak overall, meaning none of the players on the floor had been in high school the last time the Panthers dropped a league contest. “When I looked at the schedule and saw Poly first, we were just like, 'Well we've got to go through them at some point,'” second-year Rebels Coach Kevin Kiyomura said.

PASADENA - After cruising in pool-play of the Pasadena Polytechnic Tournament with a pair of 29-point margins and more recently, 68, the Flintridge Sacred Heart basketball team struggled in the championship game, as they were matched up against a bigger Pasadena Poly squad. The size disadvantage proved to be vital, and something the Tologs couldn't overcome in a 56-47 defeat Saturday evening in the tournament championship. Similarly to recent tournament wins over San Marino, Holy Martyrs Armenian and Animo Leadership, Flintridge Sacred Heart received steady guard play from Jenna Tran, Casey Johnson and Kelly Fradet.

There isn't a much better way Benoy Menon could have ended his high school career with the Pasadena Poly boys' soccer team. The senior was voted Prep League Most Valuable Offensive Player and was also named an All-CIF Southern Section Division VI first-team selection. Both honors came as a surprise to Menon, a midfielder who helped the Panthers (11-7-3) take second in league this season with a 6-2 record. "It was nice to win the award, but I wasn't really expecting it," Menon said.

A lack of depth and injuries derailed the Prep League season for both the Flintridge Prep and Pasadena Poly football teams in 2011. Rebels and Panthers players still managed to stand out in the Prep League this year, though. Flintridge Prep's Lucas Kim and three Poly players — Harrison Hodgkins, Daniel Leon and Nathan Hamming — received All-Prep League first-team honors. Hodgkins was a work horse in Poly's back field. The senior running back ran for 1,075 yards and 11 touchdowns on 187 carries and had 33 receptions for 330 receiving yards and four touchdowns.
