TRACK AND FIELD Holy Family 63, Sacred Heart of Jesus 37: Junior Bliss Seale set a school and Horizon League record in the shot put during Friday's league meet at Alhambra High. Seale's mark of 34 feet 3 shattered the school record and helped the Gaels to a victory in their season opener. Jessie Sierra also shined for Holy Family, winning the 400 and 200 meters. She was also a part of two relay victories, as was Ren Austria, who also won the 800. Carolina Rangel also shined, winning the 100 meters and taking second in the 200. SOFTBALL Glendale 3, Sherman Oaks Notre Dame 0: Jennifer Nazarian tossed a four-hitter in Glendale's nonleague victory at home.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan The saying, "it was over before it started," would apply here. Because, in all honesty, the Alhambra High boys' water polo team didn't stand a chance against a stronger, faster and better Flintridge Prep squad. The Rebels scored five unanswered goals in the first two minutes of their nonleague match and basically toyed with the Moors in a 17-5 victory Thursday at Flintridge Prep. An easy victory provided the Rebel substitutes, who usually don't get a lot of playing time, some quality minutes.

His first right hook wobbled his opponent, and that was the opening that Emanuel Medina needed. A quick left jab followed by another devastating right hook from Medina sent Basair Durmohammad tumbling. This wasn't a professional bout, but the way Medina, 17, of Alhambra High School, quickly sized up his opponent and expertly dispatched him, it seemed like one. Medina and Durmohammad were competing in the Glendale Police Activities League's Boxing Show Sunday in the Wilson Middle School gymnasium.

Hamlet Nalbandyan CRESCENTA VALLEY HIGH -- Little did the Crescenta Valley High girls' basketball team know that when Sinnamonn Garrett hit its first basket at the seven minute mark of the first quarter, that it would be the last time the Falcons would have the lead. CV had a game to forget Friday night in a pool C game of the Falcon Tip-off Classic against North Hollywood High and lost, 56-42, at the CV gym. The loss puts CV in the consolation game against Grant High, today at 6 p.m. North Hollywood plays against Alhambra High in the championship at 7:30 p.m. The Falcons were in it until the fourth quarter, but a three-point effort in the final frame ended any chance of a Falcon win. "It was a tough night, there is no question about that," said CV Coach Allen Freemon.

Peter Fuertes CRESCENTA VALLEY HIGH -- The La Canada girls' basketball team's 56-43 loss to Grant High in the Falcon Tip-Off Classic Thursday at Crescenta Valley High can be attributed to a number of reasons. The pressure defense Grant (1-1) put on the Spartans (1-1) for most of the game frustrated any type of flow they needed to get into on offense. And with that came numerous turnovers on La Canada's trips down the floor, which resulted in easy Grant baskets.

Erik Boal GLENDALE -- For two local girls' tennis pairs, Saturday's CIF Southern Section individual tournament was all about timing. Both Crescenta Valley High's Kara MacDonald and Shira Seigle, and La Canada High's Jenny and Kim Gilmour competed in the regional held in Long Beach, as part of 26 doubles teams in the regional and 108 in the tournament. The tournament consisted of four regionals held at Agoura and Oak Park highs, the Claremont Club, the Old Ranch Tennis Club, and Long Beach, which was divided among the Billie Jean King Tennis Center and Long Beach Wilson High.

Charles Rich Having been in the military for 20 years, Richard Tetu learned plenty about discipline. To back it up, he earned a ranking of Chief Master Sgt. in the Air Force. Some former military members have left their respective branches to excel at coaching, like Bobby Knight and Mike Krzyzewski. Tetu will take over as coach of the La Canada High boys' golf team, which should be primed to challenge for the Rio Hondo League championship. A little discipline along that journey shouldn't hurt the Spartans, who finished second in league last year under then-Coach Dave Appleton behind powerhouse San Marino.

The state Senate approved a bill Thursday that prohibits carrying a loaded firearm in a car in an unincorporated area of the state. The loaded-firearms bill, which Sen. Jack Scott introduced and supported by a variety of law enforcement agencies, including the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, aims to close a loophole in current gun-control laws and crack down on incidents of road rage. Incorporated cities already prohibit carrying loaded firearms in vehicles, as do some individual counties that have passed similar gun-control ordinances, including Los Angeles County.

Charles Rich Two buckets filled to the brim with baseballs had to be taken from one of the dugouts at Arcadia High's baseball field to a nearby car. It's about a 60-yard walk for those who commit such transgressions, like missing a sign given from North San Gabriel Valley All-Star baseball Coach Phil Torres. Torres, a noted disciplinarian, saw that Andy Marquardt missed a hit sign during a game in the Southern California State Tournament at Arcadia High in July.
