GLENDALE — Lee Pope never lost hope. Having spent the past 11 seasons coaching at all of the different levels of the Crescenta Valley High football program and the past two seasons as the junior varsity boys' golf squad, Pope wanted to see if his body of work could lead to a head coaching position at his alma mater. It did. Pope was named the Crescenta Valley girls' golf coach June 24. He succeeds Ken Johnson, who resigned in June after eight seasons so he can attend his daughter's soccer matches this fall at New Mexico Highlands University.

Re: "L.A. tries to save golf course," Feb. 17: Save the golf course? I'm confused. I can understand why the residents who reside near the Verdugo Hills Golf Course do not want an expansive housing development in their neighborhood. And L.A. Councilman Richard Alarcon is helping them out by his motion to get the Cultural Heritage Commission to designate the site a Historical-Cultural Monument. If the commission says it ought to be a Tuna Canyon Detention Station Site, does that mean they can “tear down” the golf course and erect something similar to the Manzanar National Historic Site?

GLENDALE — For most of the season, St. Francis High golf Coach Jeff Durfee wondered if his young team could put together a complete 18-hole round. Durfee won’t have to wonder any longer. St. Francis capped its season Monday afternoon in fine form by finishing in a tie for third at the CIF Southern Section Western Team Divisional at Montebello Golf Course. Crescenta Valley, which finished first in the Pacific League for the fourth consecutive year, placed sixth at the 16-team event with a 385. “We’ll take it any time,” said Durfee, whose team finished fourth in the Mission League this season before tying league rival Loyola (383)

Christine Cho’s everyday life is anything but calm and serene. A junior majoring in economics at Harvard University, the 2008 Crescenta Valley High graduate's academic workload is exhaustive and her summers offer her little opportunity to recharge, as she just spent two months in Japan completing an internship. Fortunately for Cho, who has been one of the top members of the Crimson women's golf team since her freshman year, an escape from the daily grind is only as far as the next round.

Claudia Culling spoke for me and for so many living in Glendale, Sunland-Tujunga, La Crescenta, the unincorporated County and even Burbank ("Fate of golf course is a story to watch," Jan. 17). The Verdugo Hills Golf Course has been the local place to play golf, to learn golf, and to compete in and raise money through golf tournaments for decades. Plans to develop this wonderful property and destroy those magnificent old oak trees have led to a growing grassroots movement to save the golf course.

PASADENA - Two weeks ago, the prospect of the Glendale Community College men's golf team getting out of the Western State Conference Final and qualifying for the Southern California Regionals was bleak. But when the Vaqueros placed second in a conference match April 14 at Oakmont Country Club, there was a glimmer of hope that the team could qualify for the postseason. With three of the four postseason spots already locked up heading into Monday's conference finals, Glendale college would have to best the remaining four schools to earn a berth.

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.
