LA CRESCENTA — The Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team got pushed by Burbank in Friday's Pacific League game. Down by nine points early in the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs started draining three-pointers and not only grabbed the momentum but also jumped in front of the host Falcons. But Crescenta Valley responded to the challenge like a team determined to remain within striking distance of the league leaders. The Falcons stopped the Burbank run, wrestled back control of the contest and ultimately turned back the Bulldogs to gain a 62-55 victory.

LA CRESCENTA — In a prime example that anything can change from game to game in the world of Pacific League girls' soccer, Wednesday's match between host Crescenta Valley High and Burroughs couldn't have been much more different than the teams' initial meeting. After playing to a one-goal draw earlier in the season at Burroughs, a focused and fired-up Falcons squad came out blazing to the tune of a 5-0 drubbing of the visiting Indians. "It was a total mental lapse, if you will, in the first game [and a]

LA CRESCENTA — Several story lines were prevalent during Friday's Pacific League boys' soccer match between Crescenta Valley High and Burbank. Crescenta Valley looked to remain unbeaten in league despite having to play with two of its starters serving mandatory one-match suspensions, while Burbank had an opportunity to take advantage of those absences and climb in the standings. Blocking out the windy weather and personnel distractions, Crescenta Valley managed to record a 4-0 home victory and move the Falcons a step closer to their third league championship in a row. Alex Berger recorded one goal and two assists for the Falcons, who improved to 12-0-6, 9-0-2 in league for 29 points despite competing without forward Pavle Atanackovic and midfielder Michael Shahnazarians.

BURBANK - Leading into the start of Pacific League play, Crescenta Valley High's girls' water polo team was the prohibitive favorite to defend its league crown with many prognosticating Glendale or Pasadena as the top challenger. Enter Burroughs, as the upstart Indians surprised many as they set up Thursday afternoon's showdown against the Falcons, which both teams entered undefeated in league. But as the match came to an anticlimactic finish, the Falcons made an emphatic statement that nobody's yet to challenge them for league supremacy after throttling the host Indians, 16-4.

LA CRESCENTA — Goals have not been in short supply for the Crescenta Valley High girls' soccer team early on in this Pacific League season and that was bad news for Burbank when it traveled to CV Friday. The Falcons got goals from a number of different scorers and in a number of different ways, cruising to a 5-0 victory over Burbank. Crescenta Valley Coach Jorden Schulz said it's been a case of practice makes perfect when it comes to her team's offense this year. "We have been working on [offense]

BURBANK — The Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team possesses a dual challenge for opposing defenses. The Falcons move the ball around with exacting precision, opening shooting opportunities for their outside shooters. Couple that with the fact the squad has its share of bigs who can pound in the ball down low, and the double threat can be daunting for teams trying to stop it. Burbank found that out Friday night. Crescenta Valley connected on nine three-pointers and received a big game from junior Cole Currie to defeat the host Bulldogs, 67-55, in a Pacific League contest.

There were coaching changes that took place with the Burroughs High and Burbank boys' soccer programs during the offseason. Allen Machuca is out with the Indians and has been replaced by former longtime Coach Mike Kodama, the winningest coach in program history and one of the most successful encompassing all Burroughs sports. Taking over the Bulldogs' job is Loi Phan, who moves over from leading the girls' program. He takes over for Frank Chavez, whose teams struggled in recent years.

BURBANK - After losing the chance to defend their Pacific League Tournament title with a loss in Tuesday's semifinals, the members of the Crescenta Valley High boys' water polo team didn't look all that interested in competing for third place either when they faced Burbank on Thursday. The Bulldogs, on the other hand, came out with plenty of motivation to topple last year's league champion and stuck it to a lackluster Falcons team for the better part of three quarters before Crescenta Valley made a late rally.

LA CRESCENTA — Conflicting school colors blended into a unified shade of pink for Tuesday afternoon's Pacific League girls' volleyball game between Burbank High and host Crescenta Valley. The Bulldogs and the Falcons both donned pink jerseys for the annual "Dig Pink" event, through which both teams raised money to find a cure for breast cancer. But while the two squads came together for the cause, Tuesday's game was very much about gaining separation for the Bulldogs, who widened their lead over the Falcons for third place in league with a 21-25, 25-18, 25-21, 25-17 win. "It was a huge win for us, it takes a little pressure off us for the rest of the season," said Bulldogs Coach Sarah Brown, whose squad improved to 8-4 and 7-3 in league, while the Falcons dropped to 6-6 and 5-5. "It's nice to be alone in third place.
