GIRLS' SOCCER Walnut 3, Burbank 1 : The Bulldogs gave up three goals in the first 20 minutes of the match Friday and lost the CIF Southern Section Division II first-round contest on the road. "[Walnut] was just too fast for us," said Burbank assistant coach Edgar Manvelyan, whose team ends the season 13-2-5. "This is the best team that we've played all season." Walnut (19-5-1) — the San Antonio League champion — scored a goal 15 seconds into the match and added another in the third minute and a third before the mid-way point of the first half.

BURBANK HIGH — The Burbank High girls' water polo team took pride in hosting its CIF Southern Section Division IV first-round playoff match Tuesday against Westridge. It was the first time in program history the Bulldogs hosted a postseason contest. That pride was amplified significantly when Burbank won its first-ever playoff match, downing Westridge, 13-3. "I'm really happy for the girls, especially for the seniors who have been in the program for four years," said Burbank Coach Carlos Pelayo, whose team finished second in the Pacific League.

LONG BEACH ? Halfway through Saturday's CIF Southern Section Division III 100-yard breaststroke final, Flintridge Prep senior Jeff Kang was halfway to a division title. The last half proved to be his undoing, however, as the Rebel standout was bested by Temescal Canyon freshman Bart Kelly by the slimmest of margins, just .69 hundredths of a second at Long Beach's Belmont Plaza. "I knew going in that I had the faster first half," said Kang, whose first half edged Kelly's 28.53-28.

UPLAND ? The teams traded errors, unearned runs and leads. In the end, the Flintridge Prep baseball squad saw its season end on a disappointing note. Flintridge Prep squandered three leads en route to an 11-10 loss to Upland Christian on Friday in a CIF Southern Section Division VI first-round loss at Upland Memorial Park. The Rebels (14-7) picked up their equipment prior to meeting with friends and family members before boarding the team bus back to La Ca"ada Flintridge wondering what might have been.

He's got a leg, and he knows how to use it. Opponents have learned that the hard way when left-footed Gary Au lets one loose from his midfield position. The Flintridge Prep boys' soccer player has frequently caught opposing goalkeepers by surprise after rocketing a ball past them from long distance. Such a strong foot ? one which can routinely kick a soccer ball three quarters of a football field ? has earned the 17-year-old plenty of impressive accolades during his four years as a Rebel.

Charles Rich Before he picked up his bag of clubs and strolled onto a golf course for a nail-biting round of 18 holes, Brett Kanda practiced his penmanship. Already prepared to compete against the state's top golfers, Kanda initialed all of his golf balls in tribute to his grandfather, Bill Ross. The 80-year-old Ross died May 9, just before Kanda embarked on a magnificent run to cap a four-year career at Flintridge Prep. Ross wanted his grandson to win the 35th annual CIF/Southern California Golf Assn.

Jeff Tully It was little consolation for Providence High boys' volleyball Coach James Jimenez after his team was eliminated a CIF Southern Section Division V quarterfinal. Although it didn't dull the sting of falling to visiting Pasadena Poly on Thursday, 25-19, 25-15, 12-25, 25-17, at Providence, the coach might find some solace in the fact that most of his team will be back next year. "We only lose two seniors from this team, and most of the rest are juniors who are coming back," said Jimenez, who guided his team to a 19-6 record during his first season.

Jeff Tully Tom McCullough has spent thousands of hours on the tennis court perfecting his game. Along with working with private coaches and taking part in prestigious junior age-group tournaments across the nation, McCullough has also gained experience competing for the Flintridge Prep boys' team. However, for the hard-hitting McCullough -- who graduated in June -- it's what he is doing now off the court that he's hoping will help elevate his game even more.
