SANTA ANA - After sailing through the first four rounds of the CIF Southern Section Division 5-AA playoffs, the Flintridge Prep boys' basketball team finally found an opponent it couldn't breeze by in Muir. And, after looking lost in a tough start to Saturday's title game at Mater Dei High, the Rebels dug deep and also found themselves in time to make a game-changing third-quarter run and staunch fourth-quarter stand to beat the Mustangs, 47-44, and claim the first CIF championship in program chronicle.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — On May 1, the Flintridge Prep boys' volleyball team hosted and promptly swept La Salle in a nonleague match. When the two met again in the Flintridge Prep gym for Tuesday's CIF Southern Section Division V second-round match, that first match had nothing to with nor resembled in any way the teams' rematch. In fact, the outcome was the complete opposite, as the visiting Lancers swept away the Rebels' season, 25-18, 27-25, 25-22. "We should've done better and they played really well [on May 1]

PASADENA — Six or seven plays into Flintridge Prep’s 14-play game- winning fourth-quarter drive Saturday at Maranatha High, the Bellarmine- Jefferson football team had to know what was coming. Whether it was a quick sweep to the right side by speedy tailback Joel Bryant for a few yards or a bursting run up the middle by Ian Sander or Adam Ross for a couple more, the Rebels kept it simple if not predictable. The Rebels passed just six times in the game, and not once in the final period.

If there is such thing as a complete package on the volleyball court, Dylan Walker may just be the epitome of it. Whatever it is that needs to be done, the Flintridge Prep outside hitter always seems more than capable of the challenge. "It's not just his hitting and passing, it's everything about him," Flintridge Prep Coach Sean Beattie said. "He is very down to earth and complimentary of his teammates." Whether it was a forceful kill, timely block, perfectly executed ace or just picking up his team's intensity, Walker embodied all the aspects of an all-round player and teammate.

BURBANK HIGH — Midway through the summer, the Flintridge Prep and Burbank High boys' water polo teams find themselves in very similar situations. Both programs have ushered in first-year coaches, both are retooling after losing a slew of key players from the previous season and both are fine-tuning their play in Division I of the Mid-Valley Summer League. So naturally, when the teams met on Thursday at Burbank High, they took part in a very evenly matched battle. However, it was the Bulldogs who were able to edge out the Rebels, 10-8.

Long before Dylan Walker first competed in a varsity boys’ volleyball match, Flintridge Prep Coach Sean Beattie had an inkling that better days might lie ahead. While Beattie doesn’t consider himself a prophet, he proved to be right about Walker, who would go on to become one of the more decorated players in the program’s history. “I had him in the seventh and eighth grades at Flintridge Prep and could see that he was becoming a great passer who could swing,” Beattie said.

GLENDALE - The benefit the Burbank High girls' soccer team derived from playing against Flintridge Prep is that it had a chance to go against a proven squad with a successful track record. For the Rebels, they got the opportunity to test their skills against a group from a larger school in a higher division. What the Bulldogs learned Tuesday in a nonleague match at the Glendale Sports Complex was what it was like to face a team with a stingy defense and a dominating midfield.

BURBANK - It didn't matter to Derek Baer what lineup he faced. The senior goalkeeper for the Burbank High boys' water polo team knew it would be a challenge facing Flintridge Prep, ranked No. 4 in the latest CIF Southern Section Division V poll, on Tuesday in a nonleague home match. Baer stepped up and answered the call, as he made 12 saves to spark Burbank to a convincing 14-7 victory. “We knew coming in that it would be a tough matchup and we had to go out there and play our absolute best,” said Baer, who made seven second-half saves.

BURBANK - After wrapping up their CIF Southern Section Division V first-round playoff match, the members of the Providence High boys' volleyball team noticed some pluses and minuses. On the positive side, the Pioneers got another strong effort from both Phil Harvey and Taylor Saldana. On the other end of the spectrum, the Pioneers agreed they need to work on raising their concentration level throughout an entire contest. Providence received 14 kills from Harvey and nine from Saldana on Tuesday to earn a 25-6, 26-24, 23-25, 25-15 home victory against California Academy of Math and Science.

BURBANK - The Flintridge Prep boys' volleyball team was at full strength for the first time this season and it showed as the Rebels won all three of their matches in Friday pool play at the Providence Tournament at Providence High. The third match was against the host Pioneers, who won their first match of the season earlier in the day over St. Genevieve. The Rebels, however, proved to be too much for Providence in a 25-20, 25-5 victory that puts Flintridge Prep in the championship game with La Salle Saturday at 3 p.m. "It's our first tournament as a full team after getting the basketball players back," said Rebels Coach Sean Beattie, referring to seniors Harrison Jung, Chadd Cosse, Tyler Weakland and Kareem Ismail, whose basketball season ended in the first round of the Division V CIF State Basketball Championships on Wednesday.

Kenyatta Smith didn't have to wonder all that much to find the performance he deemed the worst game of his career. Smith, the towering center for the Flintridge Prep boys' basketball team, reflected back on a first-round playoff game last season. It was one in which he scored one point in the fourth-seeded Rebels' 46-44 upset loss to Santa Clara. Smith had hit rock bottom. It only proved to be temporarily. "I had a terrible feeling scoring one point and I could have made a difference and we could have won that game had I made a couple of more baskets," Smith said.

GLENDALE — Judging by their offensive abilities this season, Tuesday’s nonleague game between Providence High and Flintridge Prep had all the makings of a slugfest. Coming into the contest, the teams had combined with opponents to tally double-digits in runs in 15 of 19 games, as well as scoring 15 or more runs nine times. The teams stayed true to form, combining for 15 runs. Unfortunately for the Pioneers, they scored just four of those runs, as the host Rebels rolled to an 11-4 victory in windy conditions at the Glendale Sports Complex.
