SUN VALLEY — John Jordan couldn't have made a more astute observation about his team after it completed the first month of the season. The 20-year St. Francis High basketball coach said that for the Golden Knights to achieve success, they must consistently make their outside shots. St. Francis wasn't close to being consistent Friday during it's 60-40 loss to Golden Valley in a pool-play contest of the Village Christian Tournament. The Golden Knights (3-7) made just 13 baskets against a bigger Golden Valley squad that sealed off the lane.

LA CRESCENTA — Apparently, Crescenta Valley High track and field Coach Mark Evans taught his two sons the proper way to put together a quality program. Chris Evans and younger brother Rob have learned well from the pointers given by their father. For the first time in their respective coaching careers, the Evans brothers coached against their father. The younger Evanses got the best of the first matchup, as Golden Valley swept a nonleague dual meet Thursday afternoon at Crescenta Valley.

BURBANK — For the Crescenta Valley High girls’ basketball team, the most promising thing about its summer-league debut on Tuesday at Burroughs may not have been the 52-14 victory it posted over Golden Valley, but the way in which it achieved the win. The Falcons showed a renewed aptitude in some aspects of the game that didn’t always come easy to them last season, exhibiting a pass-first outlook to uncover easy shots and out...

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — The Hoover High football team expected to see a wide-open Golden Valley passing attack in Friday’s season opener, and they saw it — but the Tornadoes couldn’t stop it. The Tornadoes also knew they would be facing a team that had strong athletes, notably in the receiving corps, and they still could do nothing to prevent their opponents from a stellar night. What Hoover Coach Dennis Hughes and his staff didn’t expect was a 13-penalty Tornadoes performance that frustrated the coaches more than any Golden Valley athlete.

Scoring 14 runs will do more than please Flintridge Prep baseball Coach Robert “Buzz” Cook. That’s what happened when Prep took on Chadwick earlier this week, defeating the Dolphins, 14-8. The feelings didn’t last, though, as the Rebels only mustered two runs the next day against Golden Valley in a 12-2 nonleague loss. There’s still a sore spot that’s perplexed Cook throughout much of the first month of the season: deficiencies on defense.

BURBANK - Having played more than 20 games over the last four weeks, there's been little time for the members of the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team to practice. During that stretch, Crescenta Valley Coach Shawn Zargarian estimated that the Falcons have practiced a couple of hours per week while traveling from the San Fernando Valley to San Diego to participate in games. "I like where we are at right now, but we still need a lot of practice and instruction," Zargarian said after Crescenta Valley rallied for a 61-56 victory against Golden Valley in a Burbank High Summer League contest Thursday afternoon.

BURBANK - With summer league winding down, the Glendale High boys' basketball team is looking to shore up its weaknesses before the start of the regular season. Against Golden Valley on Thursday in a Burbank High summer contest, the Nitros faced a gritty and scrappy Grizzlies squad and learned plenty in a 46-31 defeat. The Nitros, a team with advantageous front-court size, was taken out of their game plan by Golden Valley's full-court pressure. The relentless defense made it difficult for Glendale's guards to set up the offense and feed the ball inside, something Glendale Coach Steve Snodgress said he's going to focus on with four summer league games left.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — A week after a humbling loss, they played better. A week after opening their season with a performance that drew the ire of their head coach, they made their coaches proud. But despite their improvements from the previous week, the members of the Hoover High football team still couldn’t get past their nonleague opponent. South Pasadena stopped the Tornadoes on a two-point conversion attempt with 1:09 to play, holding on for a 21-19 victory Friday at Moyse Field.

GLENDALE - Scoring two-out runs has been a bane during the first couple of weeks of the season for the Hoover High baseball team. It's led to Hoover second-year Coach Brian Esquival addressing the matter with the Tornadoes and looking to change their fate when such situations arise at the plate. Apparently, Hoover got the message. Hoover scored seven runs with two outs to register a 9-2 home win against Venice on Friday in an L.A. Poly Tournament contest. “We talked about getting better at it and knowing how deflating it can be to the other team when you get those kind of hits,” said Esquival, whose team improved to 3-2 after splitting the first four games in the Southern California Invitational.

GLENDALE - While the Glendale High softball team might be a bit young, with eight underclassmen on board, they've already learned about execution during the first week. Sophomore Alex Howard provided a glimpse of what might be in store this season for the Nitros. Howard hit a game-winning, two-out home run in the bottom of the fifth inning to lead host Glendale to a 3-2 win against Grant in a Lincoln Classic Tournament contest Saturday. Glendale then recorded a 12-0 victory against Los Angeles Sacred Heart of Jesus.

LA CRESCENTA - Two games into the season, the Crescenta Valley High girls' soccer team is still searching for its first victory. Perhaps more importantly, the Falcons are still looking for cohesion and consistency. “It's our second game, but these kids have been playing soccer for eight years,” said Falcons Coach Jorden Schulz following her team's 2-1 nonleague home loss to Saugus on Friday afternoon. “There's going to be some give and take, but soccer is soccer, the game's the same.” Junior Courtney Ianello broke loose for the Falcons' first goal of the season in the 56th minute, but it wasn't enough to overcome a two-goal halftime deficit as Crescenta Valley (0-2)

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — In competing against live competition for the first time this spring, the members of the Crescenta Valley High football team couldn’t have asked for a better beginning. With a new coach in Paul Schilling and virtually a new cast of starters, the Falcons marched all the way to the semifinals of the inaugural Spring Passing Classic on Saturday afternoon at Glendale High’s Moyse Field. Crescenta Valley’s bid to reach the championship contest fell short with a 25-13 loss to Pacific League rival Muir.
