What a difference a year makes. Last season, the Flintridge Prep Rebels made a brief stop in Oxnard, while on their way to the CIF Division XIII championship, to pound Santa Clara High, 41-8. This year, minus several key starters who were lost to graduation, Prep struggled in its home opener against the Saints last Saturday and the outcome was still in doubt with less than a minute to go in the contest. But, the Prep defense, which always seems to rise to the occasion when the offense doesn't, gave the Rebels the edge they needed and they squeezed by Santa Clara, 12-8, to even their preseason record at 1-1. Prep hopes to improve its record when the team travels to Birmingham High in Van Nuys on Saturday to play Campbell Hall in a 7 p.m. game.

Adam Malik scored 25 points, Christian Nitu grabbed a career-high 16 rebounds and the La Cañada Spartans defeated Santa Clara of Oxnard in front of a home crowd of 1,254. The 55-42 victory advanced the Spartans (27-2) to the final four of the Division III-AA championship tournament. "This was our best played game all year," Spartan Head Coach Tom Hofman said. Don't blame Santa Clara Saints' Head Coach Michael Sandoval for lack of innovation. In the first quarter he tried defending La Cañada man-to-man but Spartan Tucker Heaton blew by Anthony Pena, the Saint's quickest player, twice for hoops.

PASADENA — Thirty-six games into the season and Arroyo Seco Saints Coach Aaron Milam still can't get an accurate read on his team. Milam might have gotten a better read after the Saints suffered a 6-5 loss to the Playa Vista Orioles in an elimination game of the Palomino Southern California Regional Baseball Tournament on Monday night at Jackie Robinson Field. "We are very bipolar when it comes to playing defense," said Milam, whose team committed four errors and will be the third seed from the Southern California Regional in the Palomino West Zone Tournament in Compton beginning Friday.
