LA CAÑADA -- Memories from last year's two losses were fresh in the mind of the La Cañada High girls' lacrosse team Tuesday. The Spartans used it to fuel a 16-5 Prep League-opening victory over the visiting Tigers at La Cañada High. “It was definitely in my head. We lost to them twice last year, so I didn't want to continue that trend,” La Cañada Coach Kyle Smith said. “I wanted to come out and make a statement.” La Cañada (1-3, 1-0 in league) came out strong in the first and second half by scoring the first three goals of each 25-minute frame to jump out to a quick lead and thwart any Westridge (0-3, 0-2)

GLENDALE — Entering its final Prep League game of the season Thursday afternoon, the Flintridge Prep softball team had two pieces of business to attend to. First, the Rebels wanted to exact revenge by beating Westridge. If they could accomplish that feat, it would give them a share of the league championship for the first time since 1995. Behind a no-hitter from Denise van der Goot, the Rebels rolled to a 10-0 league home win against Westridge in six innings. Van der Goot struck out 13 and faced the minimum 21 batters.

Flintridge Prep lost to Westridge on Tuesday, but that was to be expected. After a few foul-ups and miscommunications by Prep cost them the first game, 12-25, it looked like Westridge was going to sweep easily. ?We did not look good in that first game,? Prep Coach Sean Beattie said, who went on to say that a few of the girls were playing in the first game and playing nervous. ?We were shanking balls hit right at us and overpassing. But after the end of the first, I said, ?Hey, relax.

The Flintridge Prep girls’ soccer team hoped to ride a wave of momentum from a big win on Friday into Saturday’s Prep League contest against Westridge. Rebels Coach Esteban Chavez said his team’s 3-0 win over the Tigers Saturday at Maranatha High came more in spite of the previous day’s monumental defeat of Chadwick than because of it. “We didn’t really take control of the game until the end,” said Chavez, whose team moved closer to solidifying at least a third-place finish in league with the win. “They got drained emotionally, physically and psychologically yesterday because they left everything [on the field]

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - Winning a draw was just as important as a goal for the Westridge School lacrosse team as its Prep League road game with La Cañada went to the wire. Sara Khan did both in the dwindling minutes for Westridge Tuesday as she scored with a 1:41 left to give the Tigers a two-goal cushion and won a draw, following a La Cañada goal 15 seconds later, that allowed them to drain the clock and hold on for a narrow 9-8 victory.

Both the La Cañada High and Westridge Schools girls' lacrosse teams will look for success in the Prep League with new coaches at the helm. The Spartans will look to Kyle Smith to lead the team after they finished 2011 with a 10-8, 5-1 in league record. It will be a new-look team after La Cañada graduated eight seniors last year including, Prep League Most Valuable Player Lucy Dodson and its top three goal scorers. “We have a relatively young team because almost all our varsity team last year was seniors,” Smith said.

SOUTH PASADENA — With an absolute minimum of varsity experience on its roster, the Flintridge Prep girls' basketball team may need the better part of the summer to get up to speed. That's something second-year Rebels Coach Todd Frost has anticipated, and, accordingly, he took his team's 26 turnovers and 21% field-goal shooting in stride during its 30-22 loss to Prep League-rival Westridge on Tuesday in the South Pasadena Summer League. "The goal in the summer is to try and get better," said Frost, whose only varsity returner, senior-to-be guard Kristin Shum, had a nice all-around game with nine points and game-highs of nine rebounds and six steals.
