GLENDALE — Glendale High singles player Samantha Sismundo won her first two sets in Thursday’s CIF Southern Section Division II first-round tennis match against Marymount. But it was her loss at the end of the day that inevitably lifted the Nitros into the second round, as Sismundo and Glendale squeezed past Marymount by the smallest of margins, 9-9 (77-75) at the Cheviot Hills Sports Center in West Los Angeles. With Glendale clinging to a 9-8 lead and Sismundo having fallen behind, 5-2, against Marymount’s No. 1 singles player, there was a possibility the match could’ve been headed to a super tiebreaker.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — A balanced scoring attack wasn’t necessarily expected, but it couldn’t have come at a better time for the Glendale Community College women’s basketball team. The young Vaqueros are expected by Coach Monica Hang to be a work in progress throughout the first month of the season with seven freshmen on board. But four of those freshmen scored 16 points apiece Thursday night to carry Glendale college to an 84-71 season-opening victory against Cerritos College in a first-round game of the Vaquero Shootout.

Flintridge Sacred Heart exited the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division I-AA championships not with a whimper, but with a bang from the thunderous hands of Rosary?s outside hitters. The Tologs played their game, tipping for points, playing strong at the net and virtually error-free, but Rosary?s Nicole Favreau and Elizabeth Krieger?s power proved to be too much to handle and the Tologs lost, 25-20, 22-25, 23-25, 25-21, 15-7, Tuesday evening. ?It was a tough loss,?

PASADENA — Rowland High’s strong first-quarter challenge was enough to visibly rattle host Crescenta Valley early and keep Thursday evening’s CIF Southern Section Division VI second-round boys’ water polo match-up close going into halftime. But with unwavering confidence and superior conditioning on their side, the second-seeded Falcons never doubted they would outlast the Raiders, which they did, 14-6, through a second half they controlled from the opening drop.

Deitrich Riley was right there. He saw the ball juggle out of the quarterback?s hands as if he were holding a hot potato at the St. Francis 47-yard line. With a chance to claim a share of the Mission League title, Riley did what any smart defender would do?pick up the ball and run the other way. ?I could have had three touchdowns today,? a frustrated Riley told the Valley Sun after a disappointing 24-21 loss against Alemany (8-1, 2-0) at Friedman Field on Friday night.

OXNARD — With aspirations of building the Glendale High boys’ water polo program into one of elite status, Nitros Coach Bob Zirovich has looked for, hoped for and scheduled some of the best competition his team could find. The Nitros certainly got that on Thursday afternoon, facing top-seeded Rio Mesa in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division VI playoffs and, despite a tenacious effort throughout, falling, 18-11, at Rio Mesa High. “We have the toughest schedule in [Division VI]

GLENDALE — With a multi-goal lead in the final minutes of regulation and the taste of a postseason victory palpable, a fourth-quarter collapse left the Hoover High boys’ water polo team with something far less savory to chew on — a double-overtime loss. The Tornadoes went up by four goals early in Thursday’s CIF Southern Section Division VI second-round match at Arroyo Valley and found themselves with the same cushion with under two minutes left in the fourth period.

LA CRESCENTA — When the CIF Southern Section Division II playoff pairings were released Monday, many of the members of the Crescenta Valley High girls’ tennis team weren’t familiar with first-round opponent Pasadena Poly. Still, the Falcons knew enough to understand they couldn’t relax against the Panthers and fall into a first-round trap. Crescenta Valley passed its first test Thursday afternoon with a 12-6 home win against Pasadena Poly. The Falcons (17-1)

GLENDALE — Firefighters received a boost Monday from calmer winds that helped officials douse three blazes that have so far charred more than 38,960 acres and caked parts of the region in a thin layer of ash. The more hospitable conditions for firefighters helped increase the quality of air that had been dangerously unhealthy because of toxic pollutants in the wake of fires in Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and Orange counties, officials said....
