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.

La Cañada boys’ soccer team continues to roll in the La Cañada Tournament, defeating Santa Clara and Village Christian and tying Salesian. La Cañada first sailed to victory over Santa Clara in a 6-0 drubbing, with Matt Cannata getting a hat trick. Though the Spartans won the game easily, they lost Garret Gray in 16th minute with an ankle injury and haven’t gotten him back, though La Cañada Head Coach Jordan Jones said he’ll likely return before league play.

If California theme parks conjure up images of long lines for attractions and food, visitors to the San Francisco Bay area will find nirvana with a stop at California’s Great America, a Santa Clara sister park to famous Knotts Berry Farm. Even in August, the lines were short for what any theme park junkie would consider a high-quality product. During our formative years in the Pacific Northwest, we relished the opportunity we had every few years to visit California and, in particular, Disneyland.

After beginning the season with two sound victories, the Flintridge Prep varsity football team has been bushwacked in its last two. Host Pasadena Marantha dropped the Rebels, 42-12, two weeks ago and last Saturday, Oxnard Santa Clara pounded Prep, 42-7, in its final nonleague game of the season. Fortunately for the 2-2 Rebels they get a bye this week to regroup. They begin Prep League play with an away contest at Claremont Webb on Saturday, Oct. 14 at 2:30 p.m. In the Santa Clara game, the Saints literally rolled over Prep with 602 yards of total offense, including 485 yards on the ground.

There’s something about Flintridge Prep’s basketball court that brings out new and thrilling moments year after year. Over the years, there have been buzzer-beaters, overtime nail-biters, fans mobbing Rebels on the court and opponents leaving in tears. The playoff contest between the Rebels and Oxnard Santa Clara on Feb. 17 was another classic. Nearly seven years after defeating Santa Clara on a buzzer-beating jumper in the first round of the playoffs, the Rebels lost to the same opponent when a pair of shots fell short as time expired in the game and on their season.

The bus drive to Morro Bay is certainly scenic, yet a second-round playoff victory will definitely elevate the level of appreciation of the California coast. Thanks to Will Baldwin and Clarke Anderson, La Cañada definitely loves the drive back home after earning an easy second-round playoff victory at Morro Bay, 68-48. With Tuesday night?s victory, the Spartans advance to the semifinals of the CIF Southern Section Division III-AA Boys? basketball playoffs. They will face Oxnard Santa Clara at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.

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.
