COVINA — Being unprepared wasn't an option for the Hoover High boys' basketball team. Once the CIF Southern Section office reveled its Division II-AA playoff parings Sunday, the Tornadoes immediately began studying their first-round opponent. The extra study time paid off with a handsome reward. Hoover played one of its more complete games Friday night, as it recorded a 62-53 road victory against Charter Oak in a first-round postseason contest. Hoover (20-7) will next face Great Oak in a second-round game at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at a site to be determined.

On the difficulty scale, this Friday’s 7 p.m. second-round matchup at CIF Southern Section Southeast Division No. 1-seed Charter Oak represents an unparalleled challenge for the Falcons, however. It’s a game they are approaching with both confidence and caution.

Shortstop Gonzalo Rios was a standout as usual. Quinton Hill was also sensational.

COVINA — On more than one occasion this season, the Crescenta Valley High football team had atoned for a subpar first half with a second-half bounce back and a win. Once again, the Falcons showed their Achilles heel on Friday night in a CIF Southern Section Southeast Division quarterfinal playoff contest at Charter Oak, but on this night, there would be no second chances. The Chargers, the No. 1 seed in the division, coasted to a 40-9 win after scoring more than half of their points in the opening period, sending the Falcons to a season-ending defeat with a 9-3 record.

Deputy Glendale Unified Supt. Dick Sheehan is expected to be confirmed to the top district post today, about a month after Supt. Michael Escalante announced plans to retire. Board of Education members are scheduled to confirm the appointment at a meeting today, and will likely ratify a contract late in March, board President Mary Boger said. Sheehan’s promotion would be effective July 1. Board members sought someone already highly qualified who could come in and preserve student achievement without a steep learning curve, Boger said.

On almost every down, it seemed as if Falcons quarterback Karsen Reedy struggled to control the snap. For that matter, there was very little anyone on the Crescenta Valley football team could control on Friday night in its CIF Southern Section Southeast Division quarterfinal playoff contest here at Charter Oak, as the top-seeded Chargers (11-0-1) cruised to a 40-9 victory. “All year long, we’ve never not played hard, no matter what the score,” said Crescenta Valley head coach Tony Zarillo.

Hoover will meet upset-minded Great Oak in a CIF Southern Section Division II-AA second-round contest.
