Edgar Melik-Stepanyan He's in. That's all Glendale resident Vanes Martirosyan needed to know Thursday night. The 17-year-old welterweight qualified for the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens with a semifinal victory against Canada's Adam Trumpish in the 2004 America's Qualifier competition at the Auditorio Municipal in Tijuana.

GLENDALE ? A carefully-conceived and well-executed game plan can work wonders for a determined team, even when faced with a favored opponent far from home.

Mirjam Swanson MOYSE FIELD -- Glendale High football Coach Loi Phan worked out a game plan with his players before their 54-3 loss to Muir Friday night at Moyse Field. "Our game plan was to hold the ball for as long as possible, to run time off the clock," Phan said. "And we did a good job of that, especially in the beginning." His Nitros (0-6, 0-1 in Pacific League) did execute the hold-the-ball part of the plan well, starting the game with a 16-play drive and running 18 more offensive plays than the Mustangs' 47 offensive snaps.

Hamlet Nalbandyan The game plan was there. The execution wasn't. After losing humbly by 12 points the first time against Saugus, the Crescenta Valley boys' basketball team matched the undefeated Centurions step for step during Friday's nonleague contest at the Falcon gym. But when it came time to deliver in the clutch, CV rarely could. The Falcons shot just 19 of 50 from the field (38%) in losing to Saugus, 52-48. Even worse for CV (4-3)

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan It's a simple game plan that's worked to perfection. The Crescenta Valley Junior Baseball All-Star team has put defenses on their heels by merely putting the ball in play, and watched as its opponents have self-destructed.

GLENDALE - The Glendale Jewel City-Jewish War Veterans Bears practiced their bunting Thursday in preparation for the game plan against the Andy's of Crescenta Valley in Saturday's District 16 junior baseball first-round game. While the game plan proved effective, and practiced proved once again to be instrumental, the Bears were aided by sloppy play on the part of the Andy's and cruised to an 11-4 win in the afternoon tilt at the Scholl Canyon Ball Fields. Crescenta Valley struggled from the mound and defensively in a game that was called in the fifth inning due to the two-hour time limit, as it issued 10 walks and committed five errors.

Hamlet Nalbandyan This time, it was Tulyah Gaines' turn. Three nights after watching Crescenta Valley High star Jeanine Deno put 33 up her team, the Burroughs standout decided that Tuesday would be her time in the limelight. The junior point guard scored 17 points, dished out seven assists and collected five steals in a sluggish 47-43 nonleague victory against the Falcons at home. The win exacted some sort of revenge for Gaines and co. On Friday, a Deno-led Falcon squad earned an impressive 59-55 victory against the Indians in the title game of the second annual Lady Falcon Tip-Off Classic.

Mirjam Swanson TUJUNGA -- There's being overmatched. And there's being ridiculously, completely overmatched. Then there's being ridiculously overmatched against a team with an agenda. That was the case for the Verdugo Hills High girls' basketball team Wednesday in its 83-23 Sunset Six League loss to a relentless Grant team at the Dons' gym. "We were definitely outmatched today," Verdugo Hills Coach Dan Nakauchi said. "Out-quicked, out-sized, everything."

Hamlet Nalbandyan All Vigen Jilizian could do was shake his head. The second-year Hoover High boys' basketball coach realized just what his team let slip away following Friday night's 52-41 home setback against Arcadia in the Pacific League opener. The Tornadoes -- who have six sophomores and a freshman on their roster -- have had a better-than-expected nonleague run this season, winning nine games, four more than they did the entire 2003-04 campaign.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan Sophomore Rafael Gallegos had a concise explanation for why the Hoover High boys' basketball played its best game of the year. "It's CV, that's all it is," said the Tornado forward after Hoover pulled off a stunning 52-46 Pacific League win Friday at home. The Falcons (10-9, 0-3 in league) brought out the best in Gallegos and the rest of the Tornadoes. Hoover's young players stepped up in every way possible to hand Falcon Coach Jim Smiley his first league defeat against the Tornadoes in his six-year tenure.

LA CRESCENTA - In front of a near capacity crowd in its home gym, the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team scored a key Pacific League victory over Muir.

BURBANK - It was a slow start that ultimately proved instrumental in the final result. The Crescenta Valley High girls' basketball team was held scoreless for the first 5 minutes 31 seconds of its West Coast Holiday Festival second-round meeting with Chaminade, while giving up the game's first 13 points and trailed by double digits for most of the 63-49 loss to the Eagles on Friday evening at Burroughs High. After falling behind, 13-0, the Falcons settled down and played effectively, but Chaminade never let up and will advance to the quarterfinals of the tournament on Saturday.

LOS ANGELES - Once all the lights worked properly, Stefan Smith was ready to go to work. The start of Flintridge Prep's intersectional road contest against Hawkins was delayed for nearly 15 minutes while two of the four light poles briefly malfunctioned. It gave Smith, the standout senior running back on the Flintridge Prep football team, time to take a deep breath and think over the game plan while the lights slowly reset. Smith quickly grabbed the spotlight, as he scored a pair of touchdowns to carry Flintridge Prep to a 21-13 victory Friday night.

It's a simple game plan that's worked positively throughout the postseason for the Crescenta Valley 9-10 All-Star softball team. Instead of swinging away for the fences during each at-bat, Crescenta Valley has adopted the formula of putting the ball in play and using its speed to put up crooked numbers. It worked again for Crescenta Valley, which posted a 9-1 win against Culver City on Sunday in a Southern California State Championship contest at Harvey Field in Jurupa. Crescenta Valley, which previously won District 16 and Section 2 championships, will next face District 58 champion Tri-Valley in a semifinal game at 5 p.m. Wednesday at the same venue.

Coming off one of the worst seasons in program history, which included just one win and the unprecedented cancellation of two games due to an insufficient number of players, the Flintridge Prep football team needed to make some changes. First and foremost, the Rebels needed more players, and through a concerted effort to recruit on campus, their numbers have grown to 23, up from last year's 18. Fifteen are seniors. Beyond that, though, Rebels Coach Antonio Harrison saw the need to make some fundamental alterations at the core of the program in shuffling up his coaching staff and overhauling the team's approach to defense and special teams.

Hundreds of people packed the stands Sunday to watch Glendale firefighters successfully defend their title against their police counterparts during the second annual Hoop Heroes basketball charity game. Although the police had practiced their game for months, they lost to firefighters, 51-37, at Glendale High School. Nearly 600 people packed the bleachers for the game, which raised $5,000 for Zone Academy, the Salvation Army's after-school program for at-risk youth. The audience was also asked to donate canned food items as part of the game's admission, resulting in an estimated 1,000 pounds of canned goods for the Salvation Army's pantry, organizers said.

GLENDALE — Whether they ended the past season on solid footing or on shaky ground, all area boys’ basketball teams — record-wise, at least — start the season anew on equal footing, ready to begin the chase for league titles and playoff berths. The most successful area program last year was Flintridge Prep, which captured its second consecutive Prep League title and advanced to the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division IV-A playoffs for the second year in a row. Odds would seem to favor the Rebels’ chances of duplicating their recent success, considering Coach Garrett Ohara returns 80% of his starting lineup.
