It isn?t fair, said Flintridge Prep Head Coach Perry Skaggs, that his team had to play Chadwick and Webb again on Saturday to determine the second-best team in the league. ?I feel we should be secured as the No. 2 seed at 3-2 (in league), having beaten Chadwick and Webb on the field,? Skaggs said after his team lost to Rio Hondo Prep on Friday evening. ?I believe we?re putting our kids in undue risk. I don?t think it?s necessary.? Flintridge Prep lost their Prep League finale to Rio Hondo Prep, 54-7.

With two weeks to prepare for one of the top teams in the region, the members of the Flintridge Prep football team came into Friday night?s Prep League opener against Rio Hondo Prep optimistic. Fresh from a bye week, the Rebels came in thinking they stood a chance against the defending league and CIF Southern Section Northeast Division champions. From the opening whistle, Flintridge Prep was swarmed by bigger and more talented athletes, and couldn?t match up, in a 48-0 road loss.

La Cañada’s baseball team had a chance to win its Rio Hondo league opener on the road last Friday, as they visited the Rams of Temple City. Despite an early lead, the Spartans could not hang on, losing 7-5. Temple City’s Brian Dearth was off to a solid start. Nine pitches, two strikeouts, two batters faced. Then came a hit, followed by another hit, followed by a third hit, and finally followed by a walk. Before it was said and done, Dearth faced seven batters, allowed two La Cañada runs to score and had a runner in scoring position.

The Flintridge Prep varsity football squad has had an up and down season in 2006. The Rebels are capable of winning big and losing big.

The Kares' defeat dropped the Rebels to 3-4 overall and to 1-2 in league. They will travel to Pasadena Poly this Saturday for a 2 p.m. league contest.

Host Rio Hondo Prep scored early in its Prep League game against the Flintridge Prep varsity baseball team to force the Rebels to play catch up the rest of the contest.

TEMPLE CITY - Any time the La Cañada High softball team has Olivia Leyva on base, it's a good sign. That again proved to be the case Friday, when La Cañada met host Temple City in a Rio Hondo League contest. Leyva had two hits, stole three bases and scored two runs to help La Cañada pick up a 7-3 win. “Olivia brings everything to us, from being steady on offense and defense to providing leadership,” said La Cañada Coach KC Mathews, whose team improved to 14-7, 7-2 and is trailing Monrovia (8-1)

LA CAÑADA - A final regular season tune-up perhaps delivered the La Cañada High swimming program something it craved. The Spartans concluded their last home Rio Hondo League match with a 121-24 victory over Monrovia on the boys' side and a 114-49 triumph for the girls versus the Wildcats. With the win, the La Cañada girls' team finished runner-up in the Rio Hondo League with a 4-1 mark, while the boys took third at 3-2. Each also captured some momentum before the league's preliminaries on Wednesday and finals on Friday at the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center.

LA CAÑADA - With San Marino High pitching ace Jeff Bain not in the lineup, the prospects, if not odds, certainly seemed in favor of the La Cañada baseball team at the onset of its Rio Hondo League home game Friday afternoon. Yet, fortune was not on the side of the Spartans, who ran into a buzz saw in the form of San Marino No. 2 pitcher Miles Glazier. The junior left-hander was direct with his fastball and economical with his pitch count, which spelled doom for a La Cañada squad that didn't capitalize on its opportunities and fell, 6-0. “The difference was we just didn't get key hits,” Spartans Coach Alex Valadez said.

Regardless of whether the La Cañada High girls' basketball team played at home or on the road this past season, the Spartans' jerseys had a certain uniformity of cardinal, gold and white. While Spartans senior guard Courtney Chen wore the same colors as her teammates, the 5-foot-4 sparkplug also accessorized. Chen could been seen throughout the year with purple bruises, blackened knees and reddened elbows earned by a give-all, play-hard mentality that helped lead her squad to several wins and Chen to individual awards accompanied by bumps, lacerations and even a concussion.

MONROVIA - While neither the La Cañada High or Monrovia baseball teams could claim they hit exceptionally well in clutch situations in Wednesday afternoon's Rio Hondo League meeting, the Spartans walked away with two distinct advantages. La Cañada secured just enough hits and, more importantly, notched a pivotal 3-2 road victory in the first of three meetings between the rivals. The Spartans (9-5, 2-1) finished one for 12 with runners in scoring position with two RBI and stranded nine baserunners, while Monrovia (7-6, 2-2)

LA CAÑADA - A two-run, fifth-inning triple from La Cañada High junior infielder Alex Vaughn broke up what was a frustrating effort for the host Spartans, who benefited from the extra-base hit and some solid pitching in picking up a first Rio Hondo League victory this season, 2-1, versus upset-minded South Pasadena on Tuesday afternoon. With the win, the Spartans improved to 4-4 overall and 1-1 in league and head into the spring break as they won't return to Rio Hondo League action until an April 9 contest at Monrovia.
