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.

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 - In but its fourth year of existence, the Glendale High girls' lacrosse team was able to accomplish something that no other Nitros girls' squad has been able to in more than a decade. Perhaps coming without the pomp and circumstance of some other more established sports, the Nitros simply took care of business and made school history on Friday afternoon with complete dominance and relative ease. Scoring the first six goals of the match, the Nitros rolled to a 14-3 victory over Westridge, as Glendale won its first-ever Pacific League title.

On a typical morning at the beginning of this school year, a bus known as "Bus 106" carrying dozens of students to Clark Magnet High School from Glendale was late to school again. So, Barbara Melone, then senior administrative secretary at the school, made an announcement she had grown used to making, often in her disgruntled, irritated or sarcastic tone. "Bus 106 has just arrived," she told the entire student body over the school's intercom. Then, only to her colleagues in the school's front office, she joked, "I'm going to put 'Bus 106 has just arrived' on my tombstone.

Just weeks before Glendale High's archery team competes in a state championship, five-time Olympic archer Khatuna Lorig dropped by Tuesday to offer advice to team members on their form, footing and follow-through. Lorig, who practices the sport for six to eight hours each day, said she's learned to remain cool under pressure because of the time she's put into archery. Originally from the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic, now the Republic of Georgia, Lorig was granted U.S. citizenship in 2005.

With two coaches looking for a change of scenery at Crescenta Valley and Glendale highs, the rival schools examined the possibility of a swap among health teachers who to be manning the pool deck, as well. It came in 1992, shortly after Chris Kaufman had already turned the Crescenta Valley boys' swimming and water polo teams into some of the top programs in the area while also serving as a health instructor. Over at Glendale, Pete Loporchio had spent several years as a health teacher and achieving success with the Nitro boys' water polo and swimming teams.

GLENDALE - Back in 2011, in its inaugural season, the Glendale High girls' lacrosse team finished winless in eight games, as the Nitros struggled to stay competitive, much less vie for league titles.

On Tuesday afternoon at Moyse Stadium, Glendale moved within one game of clinching a share of its first Pacific League championship by defeating Chaminade, 8-7.

It's something Glendale first-year Coach Alan Eberhart had running through his mind Friday, leading up to the first of two season matchups against cross-town rival Hoover. If the Nitros had a quality scoring opportunity, Eberhart said he would not hesitate to send a runner home on a close play at the plate.
