GLENDALE - On his final pitch Wednesday afternoon, Tanner Carrico hit the outside corner. With two outs in the top of the seventh inning, his changeup breezed across the plate and caught Alexis Miranda looking, resulting in a called third strike. It served as the exclamation point for the senior right-hander, who tossed the first no-hitter of his career. Carrico threw seven shutout innings in the final game of the Babe Herman Tournament to propel the Crescenta Valley baseball team to a 3-0 victory over Birmingham High at Stengel Field.

VAN NUYS ? Fred Babadjanians knew Tuesday night's Upper-A Division men's basketball championship game in the 31st annual Homenetmen Navasartian Games was going to come down to a defensive stop. "He looked at me and told me it was going to come down to it," standout forward Zareh Avedian said of the Ararat 1 head coach who also pilots the Glendale High girls' basketball team. Avedian, a Hoover High graduate, made the play of the night, blocking Saro Jankozian's potential game-winning three-pointer in the final seconds of Glendale-based Ararat's 37-35 title-clinching overtime victory against Crescenta Valley-based Shant in front of a capacity crowd at Birmingham High.

Chuck Schilken Three games into his career as a varsity starter, Flintridge Prep sophomore Alex Clayton established himself as a legitimate defensive force, with two interceptions and a fumble recovery against Campbell Hall on Saturday. But he was in no mood to discuss personal achievements after the game -- not after the defending CIF Southern Section Division XIII champion Rebels dropped a 24-7 nonleague decision at Birmingham High to fall to 1-2 on the season.

VAN NUYS ? St. Francis High football players Anthony Lopez, Brian Lynch and Ray McDonough finished their high school careers as winners. The trio helped the East team win the annual East-West All-Star Game, playing on both sides of the ball in a 27-25 victory Sunday at Birmingham High. Burroughs High's Thomas Kyle, an All-Area first-team selection in the fall, was the East team's most valuable player. The running back had seven carries for 38 yards, but his highlight came when he returned a kickoff 91 yards for a touchdown to give the East team a 14-13 lead in the second quarter.

Mirjam Swanson BURBANK -- The Glendale High girls' basketball team's already carefree style of play got even less inhibited in the Nitros' 62-15 win Friday against Birmingham High in pool-play of the Burroughs Optimist Tournament at Burroughs High. The win itself was a good thing for the Nitros, who improved to 3-6 and used the services of every player in uniform. But additionally, the magnitude of the run-away 47-point victory -- even against the struggling Patriots (0-4)

VAN NUYS ? For the eighth time in nine years, there was no stopping the L.A. Homenetmen women's basketball team. And for the umpteenth time in nine years, there was no answer for Tamar Kataroyan. Kataroyan led L.A. to another A-Division championship, scoring a game-high 23 points as L.A. defeated the Glendale-based Ararat 2 squad, 47-40, on Tuesday night at Birmingham High in the title game of the 31st annual Homenetmen Navasartian Games, also known as the Armenian Olympics.

GLENDALE — With a capacity crowd inside the Birmingham High gymnasium Saturday night, and even more being turned away at the door, the men's and women's A-Division basketball championships of the 32nd annual Homenetmen Navasartian Games produced a pair of new champions following two exciting games. On the men's side, defending champion Glendale Ararat was unseated, losing to Los Angeles Homenetmen, 41-40. "I thought the pressure was on [Ararat], because the last three years they have only lost one game and last year they beat us," said Glendale High graduate Jerry Armen, who competed for L.A. Homenetmen.

Jim Riggio BURBANK -- Glendale High girls' basketball Coach Errol Garnett knew he just had to stay patient with his team. The first-year Nitro boss said his team struggled in the summer, as it became accustomed to new things when he took over for Jerry Mike. Now the dividends are paying off, and they did so Wednesday afternoon when the Nitros defeated Birmingham High, 48-32, in a pool B game of the Burroughs-Magnolia Park Optimist Tournament at Burroughs High in Burbank.

VAN NUYS — Crescenta Valley High’s Heather Bacon, Baillie Kirker and Stephanie Ziemann were teammates on the softball diamond one last time in the San Fernando Valley Classic All-Star Game. The Falcons trio, which leaves behind it a cavalcade of accolades and moves forward to respective college endeavors, was part of an East squad that fell to the West, 3-1, on an overcast Tuesday afternoon at Birmingham High. The loss hardly detracted from the experience, though.

VAN NUYS - Seconds after watching his team escape a bases-loaded jam in the bottom of the ninth inning, Doug Nicol vacated the dugout and prepared to occupy the third-base box for the 10th inning and possibly longer. Nicol, who served as the head coach of the East All-Star Team in the seventh annual San Fernando Valley All-Star Softball Classic on Wednesday afternoon, took several strides onto the field before being met by the three-member umpiring crew, which told him the game was over.

VAN NUYS — The action from Saturday’s inaugural Sports Scholarships USA City vs. CIF All-Star Game isn’t what’s likely to stay in the minds of a handful of local football players who took part. Rather, it’s the experience of the game itself — being chosen to represent the CIF Southern Section against the City Section, donning the pristine All-Star jersey and taking the field for one final high school game — that won’t be forgotten by a group of seniors from six area high schools whose CIF squad fell, 17-8, to its City counterpart.

VAN NUYS — For weeks, the East squad listened to the prevailing notion from the press, fans and opponents that the West squad simply had too much talent and would roll to a victory in Sunday afternoon’s 2008 Valley Youth Conference East-West All-Star football game. After pulling off a gritty 9-7 victory at Birmingham High in the 42nd edition of the all-star classic, it was the East, which included 10 players from area high schools, having the last laugh. “We were the no-names,” said East linebacker Kyle Budrick of Burroughs, “and we come out here and stop all these Division I players.
