WHITTIER - While most teams would probably still be basking in the glory after winning a league championship, the members of the Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo team went right back to the pool looking to fine tune some areas of their game Friday. After capturing the Pacific League championship for the fifth season in a row on Thursday, Crescenta Valley enjoyed a brief celebration before making the trek to meet host La Serna in a nonleague match Friday. Crescenta Valley passed its final regular-season test before beginning defense of its CIF Southern Section Division V crown, as Ashley Taylor collected a team-high four goals and Elissa Arnold added two goals and four steals to earn a 10-5 victory.

BURBANK - The Burbank High and Burroughs girls' soccer teams entered their Pacific League contest with a sense of security.

BURBANK - In recent years, the matchup between the Crescenta Valley High and Burroughs boys' soccer teams seems to bring out the best in both squads. It was no different Monday, as the Falcons and Indians faced one another for the second time this season. It was a spirited battle throughout, with both teams enjoying their share of scoring chances over the course of the first 75 minutes. But despite the opportunities, neither squad could put the ball in the back of the net. That changed, however, in the 76th minute when Burroughs' Brandon Gerlach scored a goal to break a scoreless deadlock.

BURBANK - The Burroughs High girls' basketball team entered its Friday cross-town rivalry game with Burbank riding a seven-game winning streak. In addition, the team had also won its first six Pacific League contests of the campaign. Despite the recent success, Indians Coach Vicky Oganyan was uneasy prior to the contest. "It's the rivalry; you just never know," she said. The coach had reason to be apprehensive. The Bulldogs battled and, despite felling behind early after a horrendous first quarter in which they scored just two points, took the lead in the fourth quarter.
