SOUTHWEST GLENDALE — Toward the end of July, Holy Family volleyball Coach Robert Bringas sensed an accomplishment looming on the horizon. After inheriting a squad full of key returners from James Jimenez, Bringas believed that the Gaels were in line to contend for and win a Horizon League crown for the first time in the program's history. Bringas' hunch turned into reality. Holy Family received 21 assists from Rebecca Sanchez and 27 digs from Alicia Marquez on Tuesday afternoon to earn a 25-12, 25-22, 25-16 league win against visiting Bishop Conaty-Loretto at Pacific Park Community Center, clinching an outright title in the process.

GLENDALE — Shortly before the season began, Holy Family basketball Coach Ernest Siy mapped out a way for the Gaels to finish in the top three in the Horizon League. Siy concluded he would need big performances from a quartet of players to secure one of those places and earn an automatic berth into the CIF playoffs. And those four players delivered for Siy and the Gaels. Gayle Lachica, Gabby Diaz, Elena Lomeli and Clarizza Merino all earned all-league honors after leading the Gaels to a second-place finish in league.

SOUTHWEST GLENDALE — In between the second and third games of their Horizon League match against Alverno on Tuesday afternoon, the members of the Holy Family volleyball team didn't show any signs of distress. After losing a pair of close games, the Gaels listened carefully to Coach Robert Bringas' instructions on how they might be able to mount a comeback and seize control of first place. They didn't miss a beat the remainder of the way. Holy Family received 50 digs from Alicia Marquez and Ashlee Sandoval added 13 kills and 21 digs to help Holy Family net a 27-29, 21-25, 25-19, 25-19, 15-12 win at Pacific Park Community Center.

BURBANK — While the Holy Family basketball team was plainly outscored and outrebounded in the second half of Wednesday afternoon's Providence High Pioneer Shootout consolation game, much of what separated the Gaels from Canoga Park over the final 16 minutes couldn't be quantified in the box score. Quicker to every loose ball and defensive rotation, the Hunters simply outworked the discouraged Gaels, who saw a two-point halftime deficit slip away into a 41-31 loss. "It was the hustle factor," Holy Family Coach Ernest Siy said.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — In its quest to win the program's first Horizon League championship, the Holy Family softball team has a luxury in having two capable starting pitchers who might help it arrive there. Just two games into league and Elena Lomeli and Rachel Turner have proved how valuable they are to the Gaels. Lomeli took her turn in the circle and struck out seven and scattered five hits to spark Holy Family to a 7-1 league victory against Bishop Conaty-Loretto on Thursday afternoon at the Glendale Sports Complex.

SAN GABRIEL - Like it's been all year for the Holy Family girls' volleyball team, Thursday's road victory over San Gabriel Mission, which locked up a share of the Horizon Leauge title for the Gaels, was a team effort. Holy Family Coach Robert Bringas played his entire roster, as the Gaels swept the Pioneers, 25-7, 25-17, 25-21, for their second league title - or at least a share of it - in as many years. "As we go into playoffs, the most important thing will be getting everybody, including the girls on our bench, ready to play," Bringas said.

SOUTHWEST GLENDALE - All of those losses that piled up throughout December and into early January are now a distant memory for the members of the Holy Family basketball team. Since the start of Horizon League play, the Gaels have turned around their fortunes. On Tuesday night, the Gaels found another way to win despite surrendering an eight-point lead in the fourth quarter before going overtime against the defending league champion. Holy Family turned to a sophomore guard to keep the Gaels heading down the right path.

PALOS VERDES PENINSULA - Trailing by 33 points at halftime, coach Ernest Siy knew his Holy Family girls' basketball team was not playing to extend its season. Perhaps that's why he displayed a positive tone after losing, 63-23, to Chadwick in the opening round of the CIF Southern Section Division 5-AA playoffs and ending the season with a 7-18 record. “I wrote one word on the grease board, 'Pride,'” Siy said of the halftime message he gave his players. “I said listen, you guys are cementing your reputation right now. How do you want to be remembered?

GLENDALE - When Holy Family's basketball team traveled the short distance within their home city for a nonleague contest against host Glendale Adventist Academy, there were a lot of firsts to be had for both squads. Some guaranteed firsts were that it was the season opener for the Cougars, as well as new coach Joseph Naguit's debut. The Gaels opened the season Tuesday with a loss, so for both teams a win Thursday afternoon would be the first victory of the season that has just gotten underway.

After making an appearance in the CIF Southern Section Division I-A playoffs last season with a senior-laden team, the Glendale High girls' basketball team now finds itself partially rebuilding. Glendale Coach Tania Adary saw some progress made during the summer, giving her a better idea of what might be on tap for the Nitros. “We have a new team for the most part and they have a lot of energy,” said Adary, whose team took fourth in the Pacific League before falling in the first round of the playoffs last season.

BURBANK - After splitting the first two games with Providence High, the Holy Family girls' volleyball team appeared to have won the third set, 25-21, after what looked to be an Iris Guzman kill. But a late net interference call gave the point to Providence, making the score 24-22, with the home team serving. Providence went on to win that third game, 27-25, and ultimately the match by running away with the fourth and walking away with a 22-25, 25-22, 27-25, 25-8 nonleague victory at Providence.

LOS ANGELES - That the Holy Family High School softball team qualified for the playoffs is a victory unto itself. Considering there are no seniors on the Gaels' team and only one junior, that's a whole lot of freshmen and sophomores taking the field. Thus, there may indeed be a silver lining underneath Tuesday afternoon's postseason loss. “I know because I've seen it, from the beginning of the year to the end of the year how they've progressed in so many ways,” said Holy Family sophomore shortstop Ginnes Paladini.

BURBANK - With four double plays, three home runs and more than 30 runs scored, Tuesday's nonleague softball game between Holy Family and Providence provided its share of wild moments. However, the most thrilling moments of the contest came in the later innings, as well as in extra innings, as the Gaels and Pioneers tried to settle things in the game at Olive Park. While both teams saw their pitchers struggle, it was finally Holy Family that was able to take advantage of its opportunities down the stretch, as the Gaels scored nine runs in the eighth inning to walk away with a 22-14 victory.
