Hamlet Nalbandyan GLENDALE COMMUNITY COLLEGE -- With Melissa Robertson in foul trouble and having an off night, the Glendale Community College women's basketball team needed someone to step up. The person that stepped forward was Marilyn Dubon, and even though she had an off night shooting, the freshman finished with a career-high 40 points and led the Vaqueros to a 69-62 nonconference victory over East Los Angeles...

Erik Boal Five minutes before Friday night's showdown of Rio Hondo League unbeatens, La Canada High girls' basketball Coach Tamar Hill didn't know if she'd have the services of Kasey Hurlbutt. She wound up getting outstanding efforts from both Hurlbutt sisters. Despite playing with badly bruised ribs, Kasey scored a game-high 21 points -- including 13 in the fourth quarter -- and her sophomore sibling, Mary Kate, added 14 points off the bench to lift La Canada to a 57-41 victory at Monrovia.

Hamlet Nalbandyan Edgar Manvelyan wasn't exaggerating when he said his team did nothing Tuesday. The Glendale High boys' soccer coach watched in disbelief as his Nitros were pummeled by host Muir, losing, 5-1, in a critical Pacific League match. Glendale was outplayed, outsmarted, outhustled -- basically, outeverythinged -- from the get-go, something that came as a surprise to Manvelyan, whose squad barely lost to the defending league champions, 1-0, in the first meeting of the season.

Erik Boal The La Canada High girls' basketball team embraced the holiday motto "'Tis better to give than to receive" in Monday night's third-place game of the ninth annual Lady Knights' Christmas Classic. The Spartans gave of themselves to the tune of 15 assists -- out of 19 made shots -- compared to only eight turnovers. La Canada gave a little extra effort in the rebounding department, tallying 34 boards -- including 15 on the offensive end -- compared to Lake Forest El Toro's 23. -- BOX SCORE -- -- La Canada 12 12 15 18 -- 57 El Toro 10 8 12 9 -- 39 -- -- LA CANADA K.

Hamlet Nalbandyan It wasn't quite the 100-point performance the packed house at Renaissance Academy was hoping for. But Pico Rivera Mesrobian's Tigran Grigorian was still a force to be reckoned with during Friday night's CIF Southern Section Division VA quarterfinal game. After a slow start -- which included a one-for-10 shooting performance -- the senior guard heated up to score 22 points during Mesrobian's 59-50 win against the No. 4-seeded Wildcats, who reside in La Canada Flintridge.

Peter Samore HOOVER HIGH -- The 2:40 mark in the third quarter signified a complete role reversal for both the boys' basketball teams of La Canada and Glendale highs. At that point, the Nitros came alive with a 20-0 run and the Spartans seemed to fade away, as La Canada was held scoreless in the nine-minute stretch. Glendale went on to win, 42-40, Tuesday in a Hoover High Summer League opener at Hoover High. "We just made our shots down the stretch," Glendale Coach Steve Snodgress said.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan GLENDALE -- The Glendale Knights travel baseball team continued their impressive play at the Dreams Park Invitational in Cooperstown, N.Y., winning both of their games Monday. The Knights -- who won the tournament in 1999 -- defeated the Eastview Lightning, 6-2, in their first game. Colin Sabo led the way offensively against the Lightning collecting two of the Knights' eight hits against the Minnesota-based team. But the story of the game belonged to Knight pitcher Chad Nacapoy.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan ALHAMBRA -- An early slump, ensued by a surge stretching over two quarters, capped by an almost complete letdown in the final eight minutes resulted in the Glendale High boys' basketball team's fourth consecutive victory Wednesday night against Mark Keppel. The Nitros' unpredictable play and 23 turnovers nearly cost them their 59-55 win at Mark Keppel High. Glendale (8-7) led by as much as 17 in the fourth quarter and needed a Riley Van Patten free throw with two seconds remaining to preserve its fourth win in five games since starting forward Hugo Guerrero returned from injury.

Charles Rich NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Amy Bishop took advantage of a 90-minute delay Thursday night. Craving for sweets, Bishop, a pitcher for the District 16 Major Softball team, visited the Scholl Canyon Park snack stand and ordered a variety of sugar-filled foods ranging from cotton candy to chocolate-dipped strawberry frozen yogurt. The massive sugar intake helped Bishop excel in the circle as she struck out seven to lead the Fireballs to a 14-0 victory against House of Arnol in a first-round game of the Tri-Cities Major Softball Tournament called after 3 1/2 innings because of the 10-run rule at Scholl Canyon Park.
