It?s a good start for the La Cañada freshman basketball team. La Cañada finished third at the recent Burbank Freshman Basketball Tourney this past week. The Spartans defeated Burbank, 53-14, and Westlake, 46-33, before falling to Harvard-Westlake. The Spartans found redemption though, defeating Notre Dame, 51-40, to take third place. ?I?m extremely proud of my guys,? said La Cañada Coach R.T. Van Valer. ?We played four games in four days before the tournament, so they were tired, but we battled every minute and the hard work paid off. From one to 16, these guys are all talented.

BOYS' SOCCER La Cañada 5, San Marino 0: Armand Bagramyan made history Tuesday. La Cañada's senior forward scored two goals to give him 42 on the season and break La Cañada's single-season scoring record of 41, which was previously held by Josh Henderson. The day was marred, though, as Bagramyan drew two yellow cards, which resulted in a red card, in the game. It means he won't be able to play in the Spartans' regular-season finale at South Pasadena Thursday, which will decide the league champion.

Aaron Berglund and Andrew Yu combined for seven solid innings on the mound and were instrumental in adding two insurance runs on offense in the final frame as the St. Francis boys? baseball team defeated Harvard-Westlake, 7-4, in the Mission League opener on Tuesday at Franklin Field. Despite stranding eight runners on base and committing two key errors early on, the Knights (5-1 overall, 1-0 in league) relied upon timely scoring and solid late game pitching to prevent the Wolverines (1-4-1, 0-1)

STUDIO CITY - Career victory No. 400 continues to remain elusive for St. Francis High soccer Coach Glen Appels. While the veteran coach, who has guided the Golden Knights to three CIF Southern Section championships and one CIF Southern California Division II Regional Championship since taking over the program in 1989, would like to achieve the milestone, he's more concerned about the Golden Knights getting on track in the Mission League. “I'm not worried [about getting the 400th career victory]

LA CAÑADA - As the third-ranked team in the latest CIF Southern Section Division III-A poll, the St. Francis High basketball team appears on the verge of qualifying for the postseason in a couple of weeks. However, all isn't quite steady of late for the Golden Knights. They have slipped during the second half of Mission League play and have looked to gain some traction leading up to the final three league games. St. Francis mustered only 25 second-half points and suffered a 64-57 league home loss against Harvard-Westlake on Friday night in front of a noisy crowd.

"I don't even know how to explain it," said senior defensive specialist Tina Orlandini of Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy's varsity volleyball team, after her team's 3-0 loss to Harvard-Westlake last Thursday. The Wolverines, who are currently tied for first with Sacred Heart in the Mission League standings with 7-1 records, played host to the Tologs, but the visitor's stay was cut short with a three-game upset, 25-19, 25-11 and 25-13. Disappointment and frustration marked the faces of the Sacred Heart players, who had previously defeated Harvard-Westlake, their toughest competitor, 3-1when they last met on Oct. 10. With the regular season quickly coming to an end, it was a significant loss for Sacred Heart, whose defense did not appear to have its usual cohesiveness, a token ingredient necessary to beat a team like Harvard-Westlake.

North Hollywood Harvard-Westlake shut out the visiting Flintridge Sacred Heart varsity soccer team, 2-0, in the Mission League finale last Friday. The Wolverines won their fourth consecutive league title while the Tologs, who are now 16-4-4 overall and finished 4-2-4 in league, came in second. However, Sacred Heart will still be going to the CIF playoffs this Saturday, something that it hasn't done before. The Tologs will travel to Los Alamitos, which took second place in the Sunset League, this Saturday for a CIF Southern Section Division I first round lower bracket match.

Rich Wheeler, head varsity football coach at La Cañada High, said at the beginning of the season that this year's schedule of opponents was the toughest he's ever seen in his nearly 10 years at the helm of the Spartans. Well, the season is half over and he has another observation to add to the first one. Because of injuries and lack of experience at the junior varsity level, he now is down to 28 players able to suit up for the varsity, the fewest he has ever had since coming to La Cañada in 1996.

The members of the St. Francis High football team more than held their own during the nonleague portion of their scheduling, going 5-0 and limiting opponents to 6.8 points per game. Looking to replicate that in the Mission League might be a tall order, though the Golden Knights appear to be up to the challenge. St. Francis will get its first look at a league opponent when it meets visiting Harvard-Westlake in a league opener at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Friedman Field. The Golden Knights are ranked No. 4 in the latest CIF Southern Section Western Division poll and one of four league teams earning a top-10 ranking.

NORTH HOLLYWOOD — With a victory needed to clinch an automatic playoff berth, the St. Francis High football team left nothing to chance and wasted no time in determining its own fate. On the strength of a 24-point first half and scoring on its first six drives overall, the Golden Knights trumped host Harvard-Westlake, 34-14, Friday night in both team's Mission League finale. "It couldn't have come at a better time," said St. Francis Coach Jim Bonds of his team's performance, which put the Golden Knights at 6-4 and 3-2 in league and clinched a postseason berth that will be unveiled with Sunday's CIF Southern Section Western Division pairings.

The La Cañada High boys' water polo team dug itself a hole it couldn't swim out of in its first home match of the season Tuesday against visiting Harvard-Westlake at Pasadena City College. The Spartans surrendered four unanswered goals in the first five minutes of the match. They ended up making it a close contest, but couldn't win, as they fell, 12-10, in their first big test of the season. The Spartans went on to score four goals in the last two minutes of the first period, but were unable to close the deficit as the Wolverines answered with four goals of their own. "I wasn't too happy with our execution in the first period," Spartans Coach German Lopez said.

When teams play in the preseason, the games test what each team is capable of doing. In the case of Head Coach Tamar Hill and the La Cañada varsity girls? basketball squad Tuesday evening at Harvard-Westlake, it was a challenge going up against a team who had won five of their last seven league championships. Hill and her team could not rebound from a rather shaky start of the contest and dropped a 49-37 loss to the Wolverines. Overall, the Spartans now post a 3-2 record, and Hill felt that the team has to play one game to beat their opponents, and not a Jekyll-and-Hyde, on-again-off-again seesaw game.

?Third-time?s-the-charm? was the theme for Flintridge Sacred-Heart Academy coming into the CIF Southern Division IA volleyball championship on Nov. 17 at Cypress College. Instead, the Tologs? season came to an end just days after upsetting top-ranked Santa Barbara. Sacred Heart Head Coach Shelli Orlandini said her girls were underdogs all season. The only time they played like one was against Mission League rival the Harvard-Westlake Wolverines, who beat the Tologs in four games in the title match, 24-26, 25-7, 25-21, 25-21, for the program?
