GLENDALE - With new coaches occupying their respective dugouts, the Glendale High and Burroughs baseball teams have been eager to begin Pacific League action. The wait for the Nitros and Indians ended Tuesday, when the squads met at Glendale. Glendale junior starting pitcher Jack Porras grabbed the spotlight with a quality effort. Porras gave the Nitros a big boost, as he scattered seven hits in a shutout effort to propel Glendale to a 4-0 victory. Porras, a right-hander, needed just 74 pitches to turn back Burroughs in the first of two head-to-head matchups.

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.

As a student of Glendale High in the 1920s, Wayne was known as Marion Morrison. He played on the Nitro's football team, wrote for the campus newspaper and served as chairman of the senior dance committee. He was also a member of Glendale's stage crew, performed in several theatrical productions and was voted by his classmates as senior class president.

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.

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 - Glendale High's baseball team has faced some tough pitching in nonleague action so far and its offense just hasn't found a way to overcome the bigger arms yet. Glendale, taking part in its first game of the Babe Herman Tournament on Saturday morning, looked, at times, overwhelmed at the plate, as Village Christian's Chris Davidson had his way with the lineup and led the Crusaders to a 4-1 win at Glendale High School. Like Johnson in the opener, Davidson struck out 13 batters, while allowing three hits and two walks in a complete game gem.  “He had command, never got behind, threw curveballs for first-pitch strikes,” said first-year Nitros Coach Alan Eberhart, whose team lost for the first time this season by more than one run. “We were overmatched and never really responded.” The Nitros (2-4)

Two Glendale Unified principals, each with more than three decades as educators, will retire at the end of the school year, officials announced this week. Principal Bill Card of Toll Middle School began his career in the district in 1979 as a band director at Crescenta Valley High. “It's kind of a bittersweet moment as we say goodbye,” he said. “I'm not just saying goodbye to a school. I'm saying goodbye to an entire district I've been part of for a long time….There have always been people to whom I could look and learn from.
