South Pasadena wins Rio Hondo League volleyball crown


LA CANADA >> League champions find a way to dig deep and pull out victories.
Somehow, that is what South Pasadena High School did in its Rio Hondo League volleyball showdown against La Canada on Tuesday afternoon.
The senior-laden Spartans, playing their final regular-season home game, certainly found a way that made the league-champion Tigers figure that out in the fifth game. La Canada rallied from a 20-9 deficit in the fourth game to force a final fifth game.
“We were all very mad,” South Pasadena senior Sophia Hathaway said. “We shouldn’t have gone (five). We came out mad and said we were not going to lose that game. We were going to do anything it took to win.”

Mayfield sweeps Westridge in volleyball


Mayfield Senior School’s path to a potential CIF-Southern Section postseason volleyball tournament berth took a side trip through Arizona.
The Cubs apparently learned they have a chance to make a postseason run while playing at last weekend’s Tournament of Champions in Tempe, Ariz. They did not win the event, but the 3-3 finish apparently changed the direction of the team.
Mayfield showed that new direction in Tuesday evening’s three-game Prep League sweep of visiting Westridge. The Cubs (14-7, 6-2) remained in the hunt for the league title with the 25-18, 25-23, 25-13 victory.
