Postseasons for girls’ tennis, girls’ volleyball, boys’ water polo and cross-country are just a week away, meaning this week is filled to the brim with games, matches and tournaments brimming with playoff implications and league titles waiting to be won.

On Tuesday, the Pacific League boys’ water polo tournament begins at Burbank High, with No. 2 seed Glendale taking on third-seeded Hoover, its archrival, at 4:15 p.m. Following that match will be top-seeded Crescenta Valley, which takes on Pasadena, in the hopes of securing its second straight undefeated league title run. The finals take place on Thursday, also at Burbank High.

A trio of Crescenta Valley girls’ tennis players and a Glendale duo vie for Pacific League girls’ tennis titles in the league championships on Wednesday at Pasadena High, beginning at 1 p.m. Also on Wednesday at 3 p.m. at Crescenta Valley Park, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy and St. Francis both take to the cross-country course for the Mission League finals.

Thursday will see the Crescenta Valley girls’ cross-country team try to bring home yet another Pacific League title at 2 p.m. at Griffith Park.

And finally on Friday, there’s a jam-packed night of football highlighted by two top-10 matchups. In a game with a share of the Mission League title at stake, St. Francis, the No. 2 team in the Western Division, travels to Alemany to face the fifth-ranked Warriors. And Crescenta Valley High, ranked fourth in the Southeast Division, takes on No. 10 Burroughs.
