Half of Glendale High School's new freshman class packed the gym Thursday morning as teacher Kevin Ozar said, “Welcome to high school!” Then he asked each student to give a shoulder massage to the one in front of them. “It's the very first thing we do and they freak out,” Ozar said. As a facilitator with Boomerang Project, Ozar started the day's first ice-breaker at the sixth annual Link Crew event - a half-day of activities, prompts and exercises that connect Glendale High's freshmen to its juniors and seniors.

After the Glendale High girls' volleyball team recorded its first winning season since the 1990s, co-coach Jennifer Vo briefly mulled over if the program's latest body of work in the regular season would warrant possible playoff consideration. Glendale went 11-9 and 7-7 in the Pacific League for fifth place. While the top four teams from the Pacific League automatically qualify for the playoffs, Vo reviewed several key factors that she figured might work in the Nitros' favor in an effort to extend their season.

Though the Glendale High girls' water polo team saw its season come to a close on Wednesday afternoon, season-long expectations were met. Before the season started, Glendale Coach Forest Holbrook said the two main goals were to finish no worse than third place in the Pacific League and qualify for the postseason. Having achieved those accomplishments, the Nitros saw their season end with an 18-3 loss to Redlands East Valley in a CIF Southern Section Division V first-round match.

GLENDALE - A pair of extended scoring runs proved to be instrumental in the Glendale High girls' basketball team's commanding 55-36 win over rival and host Hoover Friday evening. After allowing the game's opening points, the Nitros used a 13-0 run in the first quarter to seize momentum and never looked back, as a 11-0 run in the second quarter came on the heels of a Tornadoes spurt and created separation yet again. PHOTOS: Glendale High girls' outscores Hoover 55-36 All in all, it was a convincing win for a Glendale team that was backed by relentless defense throughout the first of two meetings between the two rival schools.

Kalman Aron was 21 when he was freed after being held in several Nazi camps for four years, still determined to live his life after losing most of his family during the Holocaust. On Thursday, Susan Beilby Magee, a family friend of Aron's told his story to Glendale High students and shared his paintings featured in a book she published, “Into the Light: The Healing Art of Kalman Aron.” In 1941, the Nazis invaded Latvia, and killed Aron's parents, who had supported Aron's art since he was a boy growing up in Riga, Latvia, drawing since age 3. From the ages of 17 through 21, Aron spent time in seven slave labor and concentration camps in Riga, the Baltic Forest, Poland, Germany and Czechoslovakia.

NEWHALL - It would be hard for Glendale High boys' basketball Coach Steve Snodgress to ask for much more than he received out of his Nitros at the Hart Holiday Classic on Thursday afternoon at Hart High. The Nitros put forth a spirited, all-around effort to keep things close with Righetti of Santa Maria, before the Warriors pulled away in the final three minutes of a 74-65 victory. Up against a team with a trio of go-to players in 6-foot-7 junior guard Cameron Walker, center Francisco Platero and forward Matthew Laflin (all of whom hit double-digits in scoring)

BURBANK - As the current junior class president at Glendale High, it's important for Shushanik Gabrielyan to stay on top of matters involving the student council, academics and extra-curricular activities. It's not that much different in the pool for Gabrielyan, the starting goalkeeper for the Glendale girls' water polo team. Whether its in the classroom or in the pool, plenty of her classmates and teammates count on Gabrielyan. Gabrielyan answered the bell Tuesday, as she made nine saves to spark second-seeded Glendale to a 3-2 victory against third-seeded Arcadia in a semifinal match of the Pacific League Tournament at Burbank High.

GLENDALE - Daniel Choi made sure the Glendale High baseball team left with at least one victory Saturday afternoon. The senior right-handed starter put in six strong innings of work to lead the Nitros past visiting Flintridge Prep in the second game of a doubleheader, 4-2. The teams tied, 10-10, in their first meeting after the game was called in extra innings. “I just wanted to keep my teammates going,” Choi said, “to show that we're in it until the very end.” Although not overly dominant, striking out just two batters, Choi was effective and efficient, mixing his fastball and off-speed pitches.

GLENDALE - There hasn't been much activity during the early stages of the season for the Glendale High and Hoover girls' tennis teams entering their Pacific League opener against each other Tuesday. Prior to Tuesday, Hoover had played just one match. Glendale, on the other hand, had yet to partake in a contest. After shaking off the rust, Glendale proceeded to win seven doubles sets to register a 13-5 home victory. “It's kind of scary not to have played at least one nonleague match before starting off league,” said Glendale Coach Bob Davidson, whose team also won six singles sets in the first of two head-to-head matchups with Hoover (1-1)

Scoring goals hasn't been an area of concern for the Glendale High boys' water polo team through the first two rounds of the playoffs. Aside from their quick-strike offense, which has tallied 39 postseason goals, the top-seeded Nitros plan to shift their focus to tightening up their defense in their quest to move into the championship match for the second straight season. Glendale will put its defensive unit to the test when it meets Walnut in a CIF Southern Section Division V semifinal match at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Mount San Antonio College.
