Falcons winning with defense

College Park High's A.J. Newell, center, goes up for a basket in a 61-22 victory over Northgate on Jan. 25. Newell scored six points, but it was the Falcons' defensive effort that keyed their seventh straight Diablo Valley Athletic League victory. With the regular season beginning to wind down and a perfect DVAL record, College Park is in the driver's seat to earn the league title.
