GLENDALE - Upon a called third strike that ended the bottom of the second inning on Tuesday, third baseman Tyler Lousararian turned around and slammed his bat against the dirt behind home plate. For the Glendale High baseball team, it was that kind of afternoon. The host Nitros were left puzzled against Royal High and its starting pitcher, Kurt Johnson, who struck out 13 batters and gave up two hits over six shutout innings, as Glendale lost, 1-0, in its season opener. “He had nice pop on the ball,” Glendale Coach Alan Eberhart said of Johnson.

GLENDALE - Though perhaps both teams' coaches downplayed the teams' rivalry, Glendale High and Hoover met on Friday at Hoover High with the end result, rivalry or not, producing key points for the Nitros and a key effort for the Tornadoes. The Nitros prevailed on Hoover's homefield, 2-1, on Friday afternoon to stay in fourth place in the league standings with 13 points. Glendale (10-5-2, 4-2-1) scored both of its goals in the first half, getting on the scoreboard five minutes into the contest and the second one, and what would prove to be the game-winner, shortly before time elapsed in the first half.

PASADENA - Russell Caletena got to Brookside Golf Course No. 2 aware the conditions of the greens might not be too favorable for him leading up to Thursday's Pacific League golf match. Earlier in the week, the course underwent a round of aerification, a type of preventative maintenance that leaves small holes on the course designed to loosen soil. Caletena, a sophomore at Glendale, didn't seem to mind the conditions all that much. Caletena shot an even-par 70 to earn medalist honors in a match won by Crescenta Valley.

GLENDALE - Offense has been abundant for the Glendale High softball team, and even with a nine-day layoff, the trend continued when the Nitros wrapped up nonleague play Tuesday afternoon. Showcasing a 12-hit attack, the Nitros erupted for four first-inning runs and never looked back in a 9-2 win over visiting Alhambra on a chilly day at Glendale High. “I was a little bit worried about losing our momentum with the layoff and our bats opened up right away,” said Glendale first-year Coach Greg Martin, whose Nitros won their eighth in a row to improve to 8-1 on the season with their Pacific League opener awaiting next week at Burroughs.
