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.

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 — Giving up elongated scoring runs haven’t escaped the Glendale High boys’ basketball team. It’s something that popped up last week, and it’s apparently carried over to this week. Glendale yielded two lengthy scoring runs en route to an 82-65 loss to Golden Valley on Monday afternoon in a pool-play game of the Falcon Classic at Crescenta Valley High. Golden Valley (4-2) seemed to have its way against Glendale (2-3). The Grizzlies used an 11-2 run late in the second quarter to build a 40-29 lead before a 22-13 spurt in the fourth quarter closed the door on the Nitros.

The Historical Society of the Crescenta Valley will host author Nat Read when he reveals the amazing tale of the “pioneer, beaver trapper/trader, grizzly bear hunter, Indian fighter, justice of the peace, farmer, rancher, politician, horticulturist, vintner, real estate entrepreneur and one of the great land holders in Southern California.” Benjamin Davis “Don Benito” Wilson had holdings that included what are now Altadena, Pasadena, South Pasadena, San Marino, Alhambra, Beverly Hills, Culver City, Riverside and more.

BURBANK — Tuesday's win, if nothing else, was a group effort for the Glendale High girls' basketball team. A total of nine players scored for the Nitros, whose flashes of collective dominance over Golden Valley in a 52-37 Burroughs Summer League win were undercut only by their inability to put the game away at earlier junctures. "Overall, we were on a roll offensively and defensively, and then there were spurts where we kind of let down," said Glendale Coach Tania Adary, whose team recorded 16 assists.

I share Rafael Aberasturi's lament that the bear Meatball has been saved by placing him in captivity, and that now he is to be neutered. However, I would like to point out that the neutering of Meatball will not endanger the population of bears in the wild. California has an expanding population of black bears. In fact a century ago there seems to have been no black bears in our local mountains. There were perhaps a few remnant grizzlies, as the San Gabriels were one of the last holdouts of the grizzly in California.

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.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE ? Talk about a deflating home debut. The Hoover High softball squad finally played its first home contest this season, but the Tornadoes dug themselves too many holes against a first-year varsity program that doesn't field any seniors. Hoover yielded three-or-more runs in three innings in a 12-5 nonleague loss to Golden Valley on Thursday. It wasn't the kind of effort that third-year Hoover Coach Julie Hoppe had in mind after the Tornadoes (1-2) split their first two games in the St. Monica Tournament on Saturday.

CANYON COUNTRY — Hoover Coach Chris Long told his players after their game Friday night at Harry Welch Stadium that they have to build the program brick by brick. After allowing perennial last-place Foothill League team Golden Valley to score a school-record amount of points, the Tornadoes are still at the ground level. Not much went right for Hoover in its 48-6 loss to the Grizzlies in Long’s debut. The offense sputtered, special teams faltered and the Tornadoes defense suffered.

The following are updates on area athletes at the collegiate level. Nathan Sellers (Crescenta Valley High, 2006) senior, Adams State College cross-country: Running among a field rife with NCAA Division I competition, the former Falcons and Glendale Community College standout once again shined for the Grizzlies. Sellers finished ninth overall, leading the Grizzlies to a third-place finish on Saturday in the 8K Oklahoma State Cowboy Jamboree. Sellers finished in 24 minutes 15.45 seconds in a race won by Northern Arizona's Diego Estrada in 23:34.34.

GLENDALE — The following are updates on area athletes in college. Nathan Sellers (Crescenta Valley High, 2006) Junior, Adams State College men's cross-country: While the former Falcons and Glendale Community College standout has more than his share of individual and team success in his past local endeavors, Sellers has become a crucial part in the Grizzlies' bid for a third consecutive NCAA Division II national title. Adams dominated the field on Saturday at Wayne State College in Nebraska, scoring 29 points to second-place Western State's 58, to win the Division II Central Regional.

Perhaps the score wasn’t the most important thing in Crescenta Valley’s 52-14 victory over Golden Valley on Tuesday. The Falcons took a 16-0 run to start the game, keeping the Grizzlies from making a field goal in the first 11 minutes, on their way to drubbing Golden Valley for their first victory of the summer at the John Burroughs 2008 Summer Jam. This was also the first game for the varsity Falcons squad, who lost four players...
