Glendale High

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 - 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
