The following was a self-imposed exercise in articulation. I visited the La Cañada Post Office and was intrigued with the numbering system of post office boxes. After studying it for some minutes I thought it might be interesting to try to explain it in clear terms to someone who had never noticed it, using only words and no pictures. Pictures, being worth a thousand words each, would be cheating. At the La Cañada Post Office there are many numbered mailboxes. The numbers range from 00 to over 1600.

If history has told us anything, Vikings were explorers and warriors, known for going on the offensive when taking over new territories or regions. Conversely, we are told Spartans were steadfast, strategic and diplomatic, relying on the strength of community instead of the will of individuality. When Blair hosted La Cañada on Friday night, Oct. 17, at Robinson Field in Pasadena, the Spartans were steadfast and strategic on both sides of the ball, preventing the Vikings from going on the offensive and exploring the end zone.

In addition to losing a nonconference game against Azusa, 10-6, last week, La Cañada tripped up against Temple City on Friday, losing to the Rams, 12-10.

Things just seem to be going the right way for the Flintridge Prep girls’ soccer team. Case in point: Rebels sophomore forward Arielle Baptiste booted an errant ball into the teeth of the Webb defense only to have the ball carom off a Gauls defender right to Brooke Elby. Elby promptly juked a defender to the inside and took an easy, pinpoint shot to the left of the goalie. That score began an offensive blitzkrieg in which Elby tallied two goals and two assists as the Rebels cruised to a 4-1 Prep League victory over the Gauls at the Glendale Sports Complex on Tuesday.

The undefeated La Cañada Gladiator Midgets soundly defeated the East Los Angeles Bobcats, 25-0, last Saturday afternoon at Mountain View School in El Monte to claim their third consecutive Conference Championship before a large and noisy crowd. Although the Gladiators won the toss, they deferred to the second half. After a short kickoff, the Bobcats took the ball at their own 42-yard line, but fumbled on their first play from scrimmage. The fumble was recovered by defensive tackle Kris Durham.

For the Flintridge Prep boys' track and field team, 2013 is a chance to build on last year and begin a run of Prep League dominance by winning consecutive league titles. For nearby St. Francis and La Cañada highs, the approach is a bit different with each squad hoping for steady improvement throughout the year, while at least matching what they accomplished the in 2012. While the Rebels sneaked up on several teams to win the league title for the first time since 2003, things figure to be a bit tougher this season.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - There was plenty of drama in the La Cañada High softball team's CIF Southern Section Division V victory, but little to no celebration from the victorious Spartans. La Cañada ensured a return to the Division V title game for the second year in a row with its most important and perhaps its most dramatic win of the year over visiting Nipomo, 1-0, but it was clear the Spartans didn't have any sense of a mission accomplished. "We're not done, so we're not going to have this big grand celebration with all the theatrics now," said La Cañada pitcher Lauren Cox, who earned the shutout victory with 13 strikeouts, including striking out the side in the seventh with the last two coming with a pair of runners on board.

Four area high schools — La Cañada High, Crescenta Valley High, South Pasadena and Hoover High — are collecting bicycles over the summer to donate to homeless men and women living on Skid Row in downtown Los Angeles. Teens of the student-run LOOK International group plan to collect at least 100 bicycles. Peter Lee, the 17-year old president of the organization, incoming senior and founder of LOOK International, said it’s an “empowerment project.” The idea of donating bicycles to homeless men and women came after several group visits to Skid Row, where the teens spoke with people who said they landed there because they lost their jobs and homes.

A second-quarter play of Saturday’s season opener told the tale of all of Flintridge Prep’s woes against St. Genevieve. St. Genevieve quarterback Chris Navarro dropped back to pass on the Rebels’ 43-yard line and found receiver Rose Winston facing one-on-one coverage on the outside. Navarro lofted a pass, which Winston hauled in inside the 10, where he dragged a Rebel defender hanging onto his feet five yards into the end zone. Winston’s prowess proved how strong the Valiants were for the Rebels.

Whether she’s engaged in a competitive water polo game with La Cañada High School or in Mexico helping to build houses for those less fortunate, this week’s Valley Sun All Star puts her heart and dedication into her every mission. LCHS junior Julia Rowe was nominated to be a Valley Sun All-Star by La Cañada resident Anne Tryba, who knows Rowe through Girl Scouts. Tryba said Rowe is worthy of recognition because she’s “a leader in so many ways.” Rowe and her family moved to La Cañada from Sunland when she was 11 months old. She is the daughter of Monica Heath and John Rowe.
