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.

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)

TEMPLE CITY - One of the main reasons the La Cañada High boys' basketball team rode into Friday night on a four-game winning streak in the Rio Hondo League was because of its ability to shoot the three-pointer. Well, the Spartans ran into the hotter hand at Temple City High Friday night. The Rams nailed 15 three-pointers en route to a commanding 73-47 victory, which locked them up at least a share of the league title. “They're the best team in the league this year,” La Cañada Coach Tom Hofman said of Temple City.

LA CAÑADA - Pretty or ugly, all that matters for the La Cañada High baseball team is winning, as it holds a narrow lead atop the rest of the Rio Hondo League with two games left in its regular season. The Spartans pulled out what was described by their coach Alex Valadez as a “sloppy, extremely sloppy” 9-7 league win over Temple City at home Friday. “It's kind of gone both ways a little bit right now, and all I can say is I'm happy we're on the good side of it,” chuckled Valadez, whose team improved to 12-6, 7-3 in league to maintain a slim lead over second-place Monrovia (15-4, 5-3)

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.

TEMPLE CITY - Recently, the Temple City High boys' basketball team has taken over the top spot in the Rio Hondo League and La Cañada wants it back. La Cañada has won at least a share of 10 of the last 12 Rio Hondo league titles as part of Spartans Coach Tom Hofman's 21 Rio Hondo League titles in his 28-year varsity career at the school. However, last season it was Temple City that took home the Rio Hondo League crown, going undefeated along the way. The two schools matched up Friday night for the first time this season in a key league contest with the Rams as host.
