LA CAÑADA - Thanks to a stellar effort from its featured running back and a key fumble recovery, the members of the Flintridge Prep football team are no longer winless. For Flintridge Prep Coach Antonio Harrison, he could breathe a sigh of relief. Flintridge Prep received 245 yards rushing and three touchdowns from Stefan Smith and defensive lineman Alex Gunning recovered a fumble deep in Flintridge Prep territory late in the fourth quarter to propel the host Rebels to a 19-17 Prep League home win against Webb at La Canada High on Saturday night.

WILMINGTON - Fittingly, the Flintridge Prep football team finished its 2013 season on the road. Unfortunately for the Rebels, it came in a 31-8 loss to their Prep League rival, Chadwick, at L.A. Harbor College. The near 70-mile round trip was dwarfed in comparison to Prep's nonleague trips to Las Vegas, Boron and Frazier Mountain. Coming off its first playoff appearance since 2008, expectations did not play out for Flintridge Prep this season. “It's tough for these guys, especially with all they've been through,” Rebels Coach Antonio Harrison said.

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.

After landing a crushing blow in one of its more intense Prep League rivalries on Saturday, the Flintridge Prep football team will take some momentum into the granddaddy of them all. The Rebels, coming off a 54-19 home dismantling of Chadwick last week, face off with host Pasadena Poly at 2 p.m. Saturday. And, as if a game with the Rebels' most intense adversary needed any further incentive, Prep will have an opportunity to open league 2-0 with the inside track to a playoff berth going into next week's meeting with league champion Rio Hondo Prep.

With the biggest win of its season in its back pocket, the 5-0 St. Francis High football team now has something to prove in the Mission League. The Golden Knights will take to the road Friday to face a winless St. Paul team it defeated last year, 34-13, at 7 p.m. “We're excited about moving into league this week. … St. Paul is 0-5 on the season and our approach is that this is a brand new season because it's the beginning of league,” St. Francis Coach Jim Bonds said. “Everyone starts from scratch here, everyone goes 0-0 into league.” With an average 30.2 margin of victory this year, the Knights jumped from sixth to No. 4 in the CIF Southern Section Western Division this week with a 48-14 win over Monrovia, the No. 1 team in the Mid-Valley Division, last Friday.

In one week, the Flintridge Prep football team will go from facing the top of the Prep League to the bottom, as it travels to Webb Saturday at 1 p.m. after hosting Rio Hondo Prep last week. A victory would mean a top-two finish in league for the Rebels (4-4, 2-1 in league), who finished last in the standings in 2011, but Prep Coach Antonio Harrison knows full well the dangers of looking ahead. “I told the kids a team like Webb is one of those teams where they have nothing to lose so they're going to come out with everything they have to pull out a victory and pull off an upset against us so we can't let up,” Harrison said.

AZUSA - Missing star guard Robert Cartwright and fighting fatigue and grogginess as well as the Charter Oak High boys' basketball team, visiting Flintridge Prep came up just short in Saturday morning's first game of the boys' basketball 12th annual Azusa Pacific University Shootout. The Rebels closed within one point and were down a possession with a minute remaining before ultimately falling, 44-40, in nonleague action at the Felix Event Center. “It's a quick and difficult turnaround for the guys, especially coming off an emotional league win,” Rebels Coach Garrett Ohara said in reference to Flintridge Prep's 42-41 victory at Prep League rival Webb on Friday evening.

It's been a tough start to the year for the Flintridge Prep football team, but the Rebels will look to get in the win column against a Villanova Prep team that's going through what's plagued the Rebels this and last season. The Wildcats, who host Prep Saturday at 10 a.m., are 0-3 this season and were forced to forfeit their game with Santa Clarita Christian Saturday when injuries depleted a team that entered 2012 with a 27-player roster. Villanova Prep lost the first two games it played against Ribet Academy, 59-0, and Southlands Christian, 30-13, according to MaxPreps.com.

After traveling more than 400 miles in its first three games, which included an overnight trip to Carlsbad and a trek to Ojai, the Flintridge Prep football team will finally open 2012 at home against Malibu High Friday night at Occidental College. While the Rebels lost their first two games by a total of five points, they didn't return home empty handed after they defeated Villanova Prep, 48-8, Saturday to improve to 1-2 this season. "The boys definitely needed that [win] to carry the momentum into our first home game," Flintridge Prep Coach Antonio Harrison said.

A feel-good story has transformed into one of a football team contending for a Prep League title at Flintridge Prep this year, as the Rebels are on a three-game winning streak. “[Morale is] extremely high, but we are making sure we keep them focused,” said Flintridge Prep Coach Antonio Harrison whose team is 2-0 in league, 4-3 overall. “I already told them they've done more than anyone could have expected of them after last year. Now they have nothing to lose, they just have to go out there and play.” Prep faces an all new test Friday at 7 p.m. at Occidental College in the form of the one other undefeated league team, the league title favorites and reining CIF Southern Section Northeast Division champions in Rio Hondo Prep, which has won the league crown five years straight and is 26-1 in league over the past six years.

All three local boys' basketball teams will hope to build on last year when the 2013-14 season tips off. Two of the squads fell below expectations, while another matched a program-best playoff run and is hungry for more. Flintridge Prep and La Cañada High both exited the playoffs earlier than hoped a season ago, with the Rebels falling just shy of their championship hopes in the semifinals and the Spartans dealt a first-round loss at home. St. Francis is coming off a quarterfinal run and has championship hopes this year.
