GLENDALE - Instead of collecting the Bronze Bowl and gathering with it at midfield for a postmeet celebration, the members of the Glendale High boys' and girls' track and field teams opted for something a bit different. Shortly after the Nitros picked up the shiny trophy from the scorer's table, the Nitros took a victory lap around the new all-weather track at Hoover. PHOTOS: Hoover vs. Glendale in league dual track meet There were plenty of participants responsible for Glendale's success, including girls' senior sprinter Kenya Gaskin.

GLENDALE - Heading into the home stretch of the regular season, the Glendale High boys' tennis team is seeking to solidify its doubles play. The Nitros might have moved a step closer to reaching that goal. Host Glendale won seven doubles sets Wednesday to earn a key 12-6 Pacific League victory against Crescenta Valley. “I think we played our best in doubles today,” said veteran Glendale Coach Bob Davidson, whose team improved to 9-4, 6-3 in league. “They were really outstanding and we know it's going to be a key for us to have a shot at being successful.

LA CAÑADA - After recording a lopsided win in the first meeting earlier in the season, the Glendale High girls' lacrosse team expected a much stiffer challenge from La Cañada in a rematch Friday. Glendale anticipated La Cañada to be more aggressive with the Spartans having several key players back in the lineup who missed the first contest for various reasons. Glendale overcame a better effort from La Cañada and received a match-best four goals from Ariella Ruiz to register a 9-4 Pacific League road victory.

This year's annual track competition among Glendale's middle schools took place last Friday at Glendale's Moyse Field. I'm so glad I happened upon the notice through the school district's website. The Middle School Track Meet offers an emotional boost I wouldn't want to miss. There's so much to like about this event, starting with the festive array of all the team shirts: Roosevelt red, Rosemont gray, Toll yellow and Wilson blue. Looking at the field, you see students clustered by color, others mingling with their crosstown rivals, surging together to finish lines and cheering on their friends.

PASADENA - Russell Caletena got to Brookside Golf Course No. 2 aware the conditions of the greens might not be too favorable for him leading up to Thursday's Pacific League golf match. Earlier in the week, the course underwent a round of aerification, a type of preventative maintenance that leaves small holes on the course designed to loosen soil. Caletena, a sophomore at Glendale, didn't seem to mind the conditions all that much. Caletena shot an even-par 70 to earn medalist honors in a match won by Crescenta Valley.

GLENDALE - Though the Pacific League baseball season is still in its infant stages, it has been quite some time since Glendale High was ahead of Crescenta Valley in the league standings. Such was the case Tuesday afternoon when the Nitros hosted the Falcons with a new coach, a field looking as good as it has in years and crowded stands. PHOTOS: CV boys' baseball shuts down Glendale But while Tuesday was very much emblematic of how much things are changing for the Nitros, the day belonged to Crescenta Valley and junior starting pitcher Jimmy Smiley.
