While the results may no longer be surprising, the La Cañada High boys' golf team is still enjoying the perks of a banner season. With one more league match still remaining, the Spartans already wrapped up a Rio Hondo League team championship after a 176-217 victory over host South Pasadena on Tuesday afternoon at par-36 Almansor Golf Course in Alhambra. The victory improved the Spartans' record to 15-1 overall this season and 7-0 in league. “This will be our ninth straight championship and it has a special meaning,” Spartans Coach Richard Tetu said.

LA CAÑADA - La Cañada High baseball Coach Alex Valadez dismisses any notion that his team is in the driver's seat when it comes to a possible Rio Hondo League title. “We focus on the next game,” Valadez said. “I can't overlook anybody is this league.” However, the fact is that the Spartans, following Friday's 10-4 win over South Pasadena, now sit at 6-2 in league and 11-5 overall, two more victories than and the same number of league losses as Monrovia. According to Johnny Selsor, the Spartans at the beginning of the season considered a modest goal of winning two out of every three games against league opponents.

Cindy Bengtson-Budzyn hadn't been to a fitness class in years. The 60-year-old La Cañada resident serves on the human resources committee of YMCA of the Foothills and is a member herself, but was always too busy or too shy to enroll in one of the many fitness programs offered there. "I hesitated to come because I didn't want to feel overwhelmed by totally fit younger people," she said. But last week she made a major life change, becoming a vegetarian and adopting an alkaline-rich diet.

Easter Sunday marks the 35th anniversary of the shooting of my late husband, Dr. Mervyn Isaacs. It is now 20 years since his death. He was shot down in a parking lot in Pasadena and survived, only to suffer much illness and, later, three liver transplants as a result of that shooting. My husband was a well-known anesthesiologist in Pasadena and an important part of this community. He had lived here since he was a child. At that time, violence from guns was almost unheard of in this area.

SOUTH PASADENA - Determined to learn from its mistakes, the La Canada High girls' basketball team reminded itself of them coming into Thursday's Rio Hondo League showdown at South Pasadena High. The Spartans did that by watching their painful 25-point loss to the Tigers on Jan. 23 before Thursday's night game, which would decide the league champion. “The girls said they were just fired up last night and knew what they had to do,” said La Cañada Coach Tamar Hill, whose team held off the home team for a 43-34 victory to win the league title.

SOUTH PASADENA - While the scoreboard may have read 0-0 when 80 minutes were up, the cheers from the South Pasadena High boys' soccer team and fans signified the game was a victory for the Tigers. Both South Pas and La Cañada High came into Thursday afternoon's Rio Hondo League finale looking for some more clarity on who the league champion was. A victory would give the winning side sole possession of the title, while a tie meant both teams would share it - sort of. “For four years, we've been getting destroyed by La Cañada and to finally beat them is amazing.
