Fremont was closed from Mission Street to Valley Boulevard.

Hamlet Nalbandyan ALHAMBRA -- Hoover High boys' basketball Coach Kirt Kohlmeier stood at mid-court after Friday night's nonleague game, struggling to find the right words to best describe his team's performance against Alhambra High. Then, it hit him. "It wasn't pretty at all," said the long-time coach after a long pause. "But it was a win." Sort of. The Tornadoes shot about as poorly as they could have, but still won on the road, 63-52, in their final nonleague game before Pacific League play begins Tuesday.

LA CRESCENTA — Needing some additional scoring punch, the Glendale High boys’ basketball team turned to a hobbled guard for help. The support couldn’t have come at a better time for a Nitros squad in need of turning the corner. Bothered by a sore ankle, junior Taron Israelian might have had the pain scatter after he made two three-pointers in the fourth quarter — including the final one with less than a minute left — to give Glendale a 52-49 victory against Alhambra on Tuesday afternoon in a pool-play game of the Falcon Classic at Crescenta Valley High.

LA CRESCENTA — Once it completed a seven-point comeback early in the fourth quarter, things began to look up for the Glendale High boys’ basketball team. That quickly changed for the Nitros, who saw their new-found momentum halted during a three-minute lapse. Glendale concluded pool-play competition in the Falcon Classic on Thursday night with a 57-54 loss to Alhambra at Crescenta Valley High. The Nitros (3-4) will meet South Pasadena in the tournament’s fifth-place game at 4:45 p.m. today.

GLENDALE ? The 90th season of Glendale High football will begin tonight, and there will be several changes. First, the Nitros will play on FieldTurf after years of playing on a worn-out grass field that was shared by the Glendale Community College and the Hoover and Crescenta Valley high teams. Of greater significance, the Nitros will have a new coach in Edgar Torosyan. The 24-year-old Torosyan will make his head-coaching debut when the Nitros meet visiting Alhambra at 7 p.m. Torosyan, who succeeded Ted Amorosi on May 12, said he's eager to see how the Nitros will fare after going 2-8 and 1-4 in the Pacific League last season.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE ? About the only thing the Glendale High boys? basketball team could draw a positive from concerning the second half of its third-place game of the Ninth Annual Vaquero Summer Shootout on Sunday afternoon at Glendale Community College was the fact that a tense stand in the final minutes resulted in the Nitros hanging on for a 52-49 victory over Alhambra. David Mansuryan and Derenik Kaloosi led the Nitros with 18 and 14 points, respectively, and John Robertson led all players with nine rebounds while adding six points, but ineffective play by the team in the second half all but erased a large Glendale lead and forced a close finish.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — Here’s a good omen for the Glendale High football team: It found a way to suck the life out of an opponent. That hasn’t exactly happened too often in recent seasons, evidenced by the Nitros going 1-18-1 the previous two seasons. Instead, Glendale resembled a team that played with a purpose. Glendale forced four turnovers and got two touchdown receptions from wide receiver Charles Crosby on Friday night to post a season-opening 44-28 nonleague home victory against Alhambra at Moyse Field.

TEMPLE CITY — For three quarters, the St. Francis High basketball team was nearly flawless, from three-point territory, on defense, in transition and in running its offense. For the fourth quarter, the Golden Knights just got to relax because three quarters of relentless pounding allowed them to insert all of their substitutes for the final eight minutes. St. Francis had a 40-point lead late in the third quarter and was on cruise control in the fourth in defeating Alhambra, 78-56, on Saturday night in a first-round game of the La Salle/Temple City Holiday Classic at Temple City.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — With the Flintridge Prep girls' volleyball team already lacking depth, it can't afford any injuries. That's something Flintridge Prep Coach Sean Beattie hasn't lost sight of, so he's been scrambling to find the right lineup combinations despite one of his top players competing with an ankle injury in setter/opposite hitter Julia Miller. Miller brushed aside the pain Thursday afternoon and finished with a team-high 12 kills to help host Flintridge Prep pick up a 17-25, 25-15, 25-17, 25-17 nonleague win against Alhambra.

GLENDALE - Offense has been abundant for the Glendale High softball team, and even with a nine-day layoff, the trend continued when the Nitros wrapped up nonleague play Tuesday afternoon. Showcasing a 12-hit attack, the Nitros erupted for four first-inning runs and never looked back in a 9-2 win over visiting Alhambra on a chilly day at Glendale High. “I was a little bit worried about losing our momentum with the layoff and our bats opened up right away,” said Glendale first-year Coach Greg Martin, whose Nitros won their eighth in a row to improve to 8-1 on the season with their Pacific League opener awaiting next week at Burroughs.

I am addressing the letter you published March 16 from Sharon Weisman where she states that she is supporting Ara Najarian who “has been steadfast in opposition to the 710 tunnel.” I believe I read that Najarian was pressured by Alhambra and other cities to soften his stance on the 710 project because it would jeopardize his position with the Glendale Housing Authority. Didn't he also make a comment some time ago about not wanting Glendale to look like East L.A. due to sign pollution?

Glendale City Councilman Ara Najarian won the fight for what he said was his “future in local politics” Thursday, defeating a movement to unseat him from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority over his staunch opposition to a potential tunnel extending the Long Beach (710) Freeway. In December, representatives from 10 San Gabriel Valley cities voted against Najarian's confirmation, after members from the North Cities sector, which includes Glendale and Burbank, had nominated him for another four-year term on the MTA Board of Directors.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - It was more than just a lopsided victory, it was a sign that everything is coming together for the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team when it defeated Alhambra, 61-21. It was the Falcons' hustle, particularly on the defensive end, that led to the 40-point victory, as the Moors committed 28 turnovers to CV's 10 against a full-court press in the 40-minute, running-clock 2012 Vaquero Summer Classic pool-play game Thursday at Glendale Community College.

One battle in the war over the proposed extension of the Long Beach (710) Freeway may soon be over. A bill by Assemblyman Gil Cedillo (D-Los Angeles) to restore South Pasadena’s power to block a surface freeway through town has passed in the Assembly and is awaiting action in the Senate. South Pasadena, along with Glendale, La Cañada Flintridge and other nearby communities, is opposed to an extension of the 710 Freeway from its Alhambra terminus to the Foothill (210) Freeway. Proponents say the link is needed to speed truck traffic from the Port of Los Angeles to inland transportation hubs.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — Just minutes prior to his 23rd season opener as head coach, Bob Davidson was feeling confident about this year's squad, mainly due to what he calls one of the best doubles groups during his tenure. Playing Alhambra on Monday afternoon, the Glendale High boys' doubles pairings got their first chance to prove their coach's words valid. In the end, they did just that by notching straight set victories from their No. 1 and No. 2, paving the way for a convincing 13-5 victory for the host Nitros.
