GLENDALE - Scoring runs hasn't come easy as of late for the Glendale High baseball team. 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. The situation came to fruition Friday and Eberhart's gamble paid off for Glendale in a 1-0 Pacific League victory.

There might not be a need for player introductions prior to the Glendale High and Los Altos boys' water polo teams diving into the pool with a championship on the line Saturday. The Nitros and Conquerors are quite familiar with one another having played twice during the regular season. The third matchup will be of mammoth proportions when top-seeded Glendale (21-6) takes on second-seeded Los Altos (21-10) in the CIF Southern Section Division V title match at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at William Woollett Jr. Aquatics Center in Irvine.

GLENDALE - Identifying the problem that's hounded the Glendale High boys' volleyball team throughout the season has been easy. Solving it is another matter. For most of the Pacific League portion of the schedule, the Nitros have found themselves on the cusp of winning games. It's toward the end of games when things get dicey for Glendale. The trouble resurfaced again Wednesday afternoon during Glendale's 25-20, 26-24, 25-12 league loss against visiting Arcadia. “We keep finding ourselves in the same spot match after match,” said Glendale Coach Ta'ase Mose, whose team dropped to 6-8, 1-6 in league.

GLENDALE - Perhaps the most noticeable thing about the Glendale High football team will be what it's missing as it makes preparations for the 2013 season. For the first time in three years, the Nitros will take the field without their playmaker Michael Davis, who's headed to Brigham Young University in the fall. The standout wide receiver/defensive back was one of 20 seniors that graduated from the team, meaning there's been lots of new faces at spring practices. With so much of Glendale's offense leaning on Davis the past three years, second-year Nitros Coach John Tuttle is using the spring as a chance to evaluate what options he has in the newcomers.

NORWALK - For a second straight year, the track and field aspirations of the greater Glendale area will rest on the broad shoulders of Glendale High senior Michael Davis. The Brigham Young University-bound football star was one of three locals, including St. Francis' Caleb Simmeth and Crescenta Valley's Megan Melnyk, to advance to Friday evening's CIF Southern Section Masters Meet.

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. But fast forward four years, the picture certainly looks a bit brighter since that first season as a CIF sanctioned team. 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. A victory over Westridge on Friday for Glendale (12-5, 6-1 in league)

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)

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.

LA CAÑADA - The Glendale High boys' basketball team dropped its third straight game in the La Cañada Holiday Classic, this time a 67-57 loss to Marina in a pool-play showdown Friday afternoon. The Nitros never led in the contest, mainly due to problems taking care of the ball. The Vikings used a full-court press throughout to keep Glendale's offense from getting in sync. Moreover, the Nitros didn't help their own cause with sloppy play.

PASADENA - Heading into its contest with host Muir High, the Glendale football team knew it had a tough hill to climb. The Mustangs - the reigning Pacific League champions - had scored a combined 105 points in their last two games and given up just nine, so it should come as no surprise that the Nitros had their hands full. Glendale proved the latest team to be on the wrong end of a lopsided score, falling to Muir, 40-0, on Friday. In addition to the solid play of the Mustangs (4-1, 2-0 Pacific League)
