CV edges past nonleague rival


Crescenta Valley 86, Hart 84: Tied at 78 entering the 400-yard freestyle relay, the Falcons won Friday's nonleague meet at the Santa Clarita Aquatics Center on the strength of a first-place finish from the team of Young Tae Seo, Edmond Yi, Harrison Thai and Louis Wojciechowski in 3 minutes 10.98 seconds.

The Falcons (9-1) won nine of 11 races, sweeping all three relays and getting two individual wins apiece from Seo, Thai and Wojciechowski, but the depth of Hart (6-1) kept it close in the annual nonleague rivalry meet.

Caitlin Gillman, who struck out four, threw a complete game in the circle for Prep (2-13, 2-6).

Arcadia 3, Glendale 2: The Nitros were victimized on the road Friday in a Pacific League game in which they allowed three unearned runs.

Arcadia took a 3-0 lead in the first inning, scoring two runs on a fielding error, but Glendale mounted a comeback.
