PASADENA - Manny Medrano is not an aggressive golfer. The Glendale resident was not about to change his style of play to erase Calvin Li's four-stroke lead heading into Thursday's Prep League boys' golf championship at par-72 Brookside Golf Course No. 1. Medrano, a sophomore at Pasadena Poly, stuck to his conservative approach on the tough course, hoping for Li, a sophomore at Webb, to falter to have a chance to claim the league title. Medrano's style was good enough as Li struggled, posting the second-highest score of the 12 finalists.

PASADENA - The Pasadena Polytechnic and Westridge School softball teams learned a couple of things on Wednesday. Poly realized its still in the hunt for a Prep League title.

With the win, Poly improved to 11-5 overall and 7-2 in Prep League play with three games remaining, while Westridge fell to 7-6, 5-4.

PASADENA - On an afternoon in which low scores were at a premium and the vast majority of golfers struggled, both the Pasadena Poly and Flintridge Prep boys' golf teams advanced seven of the Prep League's 12 individual entries out of Tuesday afternoon's preliminaries at par-72 Brookside Golf Course No. 2 into Thursday's league finals. “There were a few golfers that expected to shoot in the high 60s and more in the low 70s,” Rebels Coach Bob Loughrie said. “I think the majority expected to shoot better than they did today.” The goals were twofold for Tuesday's participants - to shoot well enough to not only advance to Thursday's league finals, but also to be in contention since the scores from Tuesday's affair carried over to the finals.

PASADENA - Going into the stretch run of the Prep League baseball season, Pasadena Poly, which has won 17 straight league titles, finds itself sitting in third looking up in the standings and the CIF Southern Section Division VI rankings to second-place Flintridge Prep and league leader Webb. “The league has come a long way,” Poly Coach Wayne Ellis said. “There are nice teams, but we're still a nice team. Anyone who underestimates us is making a big mistake. Not to say we can't be had, but we are still a nice ball club.” PHOTOS: Pasadena Poly vs. Flintridge Prep baseball Facing rival Flintridge Prep, ranked sixth in the division, the Panthers fell behind early, but on the strength of two home runs by Poly's Zach Bern, the Panthers pulled out a hard-fought 7-5 victory Tuesday afternoon at Ochari D'aiell Field to keep the continuation of their Prep league dynasty in the realm of possibility.
