Playing with an edge while committed to his respective roles on offense and defense has made Manuk Piloyan symbolic of what the Glendale High boys' water polo team strives to be on a match-by-match basis. He's quick to come up with a steal while playing tenacious defense at hole/guard and then promptly leads a counterattack that might wind up with the Nitros getting a quality scoring opportunity. There's always a course of action for Piloyan, a junior, no matter what's at stake during a contest.

Having been away from the coaching ranks for nearly 18 months, Alan Eberhart had a hankering to return to the field. Eberhart most recently coached the Glendale High football team for three seasons after previously coaching the Crescenta Valley High football team for parts of 14 seasons. In between, he's also coached baseball, softball and basketball. Eberhart will add another title to his resume as he was named the new baseball coach at Glendale on Tuesday. He succeeds co-coaches John Tuttle and Chris Funaro, who ran the team this past season.

GLENDALE - Serene Snaer looked for the most vulnerable opponent and simply tried to attack her. Whether it was on a kill attempt or a set, the senior on the Glendale High girls' volleyball team had numerous opportunities to frustrate her cross-town rivals. Snaer had a match-high seven aces and added six kills, as the Nitros needed just 65 minutes to defeat host Hoover, 25-13, 25-15, 25-14, in Thursday's Pacific League match. “When it comes to serving, I like to look to someone to pick on and it comes out the way it does,” said Snaer, who had four aces and a pair of kills in the final game.

Last year was a season of transition for the Glendale High football program in the first year under a new head coach. Additionally, the feeling of a lack of complete cohesion between the senior and junior classes was an undertone as the Nitros finished with three wins in 10 tries. The Glendale squad is determined to be a cohesive group this season, and any gap between the classes, real or perceived, will not be an issue if senior Richard “Rico” Vorobyev has anything to say about it. “We're trying to make everyone get on the same page this year,” Vorobyev, a lineman listed at 5-foot-9, 250 pounds, said.

GLENDALE - Glendale High's baseball team lost its fifth straight game - the last four coming in the Babe Herman Tournament - that saw it done in by solid pitching. The Nitros scored two runs in the tournament on 11 hits and have been shut out in their last two contests, including an 8-0 loss to El Camino Real on Wednesday afternoon that served as the most lopsided defeat for Glendale of the season. Despite the recent struggles, Glendale Coach Alan Eberhart feels the team will be better off in the long run, particularly in Pacific League play.

GLENDALE - While the Glendale High softball team might be a bit young, with eight underclassmen on board, they've already learned about execution during the first week. Sophomore Alex Howard provided a glimpse of what might be in store this season for the Nitros. Howard hit a game-winning, two-out home run in the bottom of the fifth inning to lead host Glendale to a 3-2 win against Grant in a Lincoln Classic Tournament contest Saturday. Glendale then recorded a 12-0 victory against Los Angeles Sacred Heart of Jesus.

From one county to another, the bus mileage is racking up this week for the Glendale High boys' soccer team thanks to a golden goal. Junior midfielder Berj Ghazarian scored the second of his two goals about five minutes into overtime to deliver the Nitros a 3-2 victory at host Vista Murrieta of Riverside County in Tuesday afternoon's wild-card round of the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs. With the victory, the Pacific League fourth-place Nitros (10-10-2), who roughly totaled 165 miles on the round trip, earned advancement into the divisional first round at Pacific Coast League champion Corona del Mar (14-3-4)

Three USC graduate students will be assisting Glendale High School this year to bolster counseling services on the campus. Under a new venture between USC and Glendale Unified, the three interns will counsel students while earning hours for their graduate program at no cost to the district. “Especially in our lean financial times, it's a great opportunity to offer free services to our kids,” said assistant principal Mike Bertram. “It's a terrific idea - especially with everything our kids are going through.” School board member Nayiri Nahabedian - a professor of social work at Cal State Los Angeles - knew that USC was reaching out to schools and brought the idea to the district.
