LA CRESCENTA — Call it a game of separation in the Pacific League standings between the Crescenta Valley High and Burbank boys’ soccer teams. Crescenta Valley and Burbank met Tuesday afternoon for the second time this season, both still well within range of claiming the league championship. A victory by one program would quickly put a damper in the other teams’ hopes to capture league glory. The Falcons got the upper hand, as Pavle Atanackovic and David Orozco scored nine minutes apart early in the second half to help host Crescenta Valley record a 3-1 league win against Burbank.

Molly Shore MEDIA DISTRICT WEST -- If it's true that every dog has its day, then Sunday at Johnny Carson Park must have been that day. Sunay marked the 51st Annual Obedience Trial sponsored by the Hollywood Dog Obedience Club Inc. All the purebred pooches who attended were on their best behavior. There was nary a growl nor a whine among the competing canines. Twinkle, a 4-year-old King Charles spaniel owned by Meda Whitley, competed in the open category, won by Highland's Marshall Dillon, a border collie who captured High of the Day with 198.5 out of a possible 200 points.

The Burbank School of the Ballet had a grand-opening celebration in its new digs Sunday, and the adorable factor was off the charts. Pink and black balloons, echoing the hues of the tiny dancers’ leotards and tights, floated above parents nervously chasing daughters with bobby pins and lithe young women stretching their legs beyond places God meant legs to go. In its 13th year of operation, the school has just moved from cramped quarters...

PROVIDENCE HIGH - While the Providence High girls' basketball team may not have felt at liberty to say it was the best squad in league prior to Saturday afternoon's showdown versus visiting Holy Martyrs, there's no need to hold back now. That's because the Pioneers throttled the Armens, keeping them scoreless for nearly two quarters, in an impressive 39-23 Liberty League victory. “When you look at the matchup, there was no one player on Holy Martyrs that was quicker than the girl defending her,” Providence Coach Andrew Bencze said.

ARCADIA - Four games into the Pacific girls' soccer season, Arcadia High and Burroughs were the only two teams remaining without a defeat in league play. Next on the schedule was a head-to-head meeting between those schools with first place on the line. Arcadia would come in with four wins, hosting Burroughs, close behind the Apaches with three wins and one tie. The game was to take place Friday afternoon at the Civic Center Athletic Field, where the Apaches edged the Indians 2-1 last season, but when it was slated to begin the field was empty and not a person was at the facility in front of the Arcadia City Hall.

Citing a desire to spend more time with his two young children, Hector Valencia stepped down as head football coach at Burbank High Friday afternoon. Valencia, 39, who guided the Bulldogs program for five years, said he met with his team Friday to tell them about his decision. “It was something that I had been thinking about for about a year or so,” said Valencia, who has children who are 5 and 7. “And it all has to do with family. As a head football coach you work just so many hours, it just doesn't leave enough time for the family and the kids.
