It took only one season for the Flintridge Prep boys' cross-country team to reclaim its spot atop the Prep League and continue on for its traditional trip into the top-five echelon of the CIF-State Division V hierarchy. After a 16-year Prep League title run ended for the Rebels in 2009, the 2010 Rebels reclaimed their top spot and moved on to finish fourth in the state championships. While longtime Prep Coach Ingrid Herskind graduated four of her top seven runners, the Rebels hardly seem ready to do anything less than continue their glowing tradition.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Mired in a losing streak as long as he can remember incurring during his 12 seasons at Flintridge Prep, Rebels baseball Coach Buzz Cook saw a shaky start against archrival Pasadena Poly characterized by fielding gaffes and baserunning miscues that was just the opposite of what he had hoped to see. “And it got worse from there,” said Cook on Friday, not long after his Rebels had succumbed to the Panthers, 16-4,...

With a new head coach on board and some tweaks and adjustments being made to its tried and true offensive philosophy, this summer will be one of acclimation and experimentation for the Flintridge Prep football team. The Rebels, who went 2-7 last season and narrowly missed the postseason for the first time in three years, wrapped up their most intensive stretch of scrimmages yet on Friday, concluding a grueling week of passing league games in hosting a clash with Prep League-rival Rio Hondo Prep.

WOODLAND HILLS — After its 16-year reign as Prep League champion came to an unexpected halt last season, the Flintridge Prep boys' cross-country team needed to regroup. Instead of stewing, the Rebels opted to get back to the basics with the mind set of upholding their rich tradition and putting in extra miles in their quest to grab the league mantle back. Prep's showing couldn't have been any better after a fast-moving storm moved into the region about five hours before the race began.

 At the pace Flintridge Prep pitcher Denise van der Goot began Tuesday's nonleague softball game against visiting Glendale, she seemed intent on getting through the afternoon without letting the Nitros put a ball in play. But, with her pitch count rising after striking out the side in the first three innings, van der Goot began to rely on her defense over the latter half of the Rebels' 4-0 win that saw Prep strike for two runs in the first inning and two more in the sixth. "It's much more tiring to strike everyone out, especially if they are fouling off a lot [of pitches]

LA CAÑADA - Flintridge Prep's boys' volleyball team extended its Prep League winning streak to 10 matches with a 25-18, 25-20, 25-21 sweep over visiting Rio Hondo Prep on Friday afternoon. Still, Rebels Coach Sean Beattie said his team has looked better than it did against the Kares. “It was a sloppy game on both ends,” said Beattie, whose squad hasn't dropped a game in two Prep League matches this season and improved to 8-4 overall. “We made errors we hadn't made.

Success was as sudden as it was historic for the Flintridge Prep baseball team in 2013. In just his first season as the Rebels' coach, Guillermo Gonzalez navigated Flintridge Prep all the way to the CIF Southern Section Division VI semifinals. Just a season removed from failing to make the postseason, the Rebels claimed a share of the Prep League title for the first time since 1997, won a playoff game for the first time since 1999 and advanced to the semifinals for the first time since 1960.

Expect things to look very different regarding the landscape of the Flintridge Prep boys' volleyball team. With a roster dotted with seniors, the Rebels marched straight to an undefeated Prep League championship before advancing to the CIF Southern Section Division IV quarterfinals last season. While the Rebels would gladly settle for at least a carbon copy this season, they will have to rely on essentially a new group of players who don't have the experience their brethren did. “We definitely will be a younger team with only three returners and one starter,” said veteran Flintridge Prep Coach Sean Beattie, whose team is ranked sixth in the Division IV preseason poll.

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.

LA CAÑADA - Mission Prep dared Tala Ismail to shoot by giving her space on the perimeter and she took advantage with clutch outside shots. PHOTOS: Flintridge Prep vs. Mission Prep girls' basketball first round CIF playoffs Mission Prep then tried a different strategy, sending two defenders toward the sophomore on the Flintridge Prep girls' basketball team. That didn't work either, as Ismail found open teammates for easy points. Mission Prep then played tight defense on her and Ismail still dominated with layups on aggressive drives to the basket.

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.

LA CAÑADA - Playing its fourth game in a week and the second in consecutive days, there was a chance that the Flintridge Prep girls' basketball team may have lacked energy for its Prep League showdown with Rio Hondo at home on Friday. However, the Rebels didn't have to look far for motivation, considering the importance of the game and the fact that they were out for some payback. “We wanted to get revenge because they beat us last time, so that kind of fueled us,” said Flintridge Prep junior Lacy Coan.

Fortunately for the visiting Rebels, they played well enough on defense and hit their free throws to repel the Cubs for a 55-47 Prep League victory Thursday evening. “For us, it starts with defense and creating pressure,” Rebels co-Coach Kevin Kiyomura said. “There are going to be nights, especially on the road, where our shots don't fall.
