GLENDALE - For one magical evening, there couldn't have been a better debut than the one new Hoover High football Coach Matt Andersen enjoyed Friday. Andersen's Tornadoes quickly sent the visiting Blair Vikings toward the basement with a spectacular 65-0 nonleague victory in the zero week opener for both teams at Glendale High's Moyse Field. PHOTOS: Hoover vs. Blair football The triumph was the largest for the Tornadoes in more than a decade and eclipsed the team's 46-0 victory last year versus Blair, as Hoover won its second straight season-opener.

Alecia Foster It was a photo that almost did not happen. Hoover High journalism student Efrain Olivares followed the school's cross-country team to Fresno with hopes of catching the school's star athlete, Anita Siraki, in action. The high school junior staked out his spot. As the pack of runners neared, Efrain began to panic -- Siraki was hidden behind the other runners. At the last minute, opportunity struck. "I popped to shots," Efrain said.

GLENDALE - The Hoover High baseball team learned something valuable in its game Friday against Arcadia. Hoover, which has been among the lower-positioned teams in the Pacific League in recent years, was not intimidated by Arcadia, which has been a league title contender for decades. In fact, the Tornadoes might just have received a boost in realizing they could play with the Apaches. Despite losing a 6-2 Pacific League contest at home, the Tornadoes walked away from the game encouraged and not at all forlorn.

BURBANK - Even before its doubleheader as part of the Burbank Tournament, the Hoover High girls' water polo team had already removed a monkey from its collective backs. After going winless last campaign, the Tornadoes notched their first win of this season with an overtime victory over Oaks Christian on Tuesday. “Last year in 2012-13 we didn't win a game and I know a lot of the girls were disappointed by that,” Hoover Coach Kevin Witt said, “and they put in a lot of work this summer and in the preseason ... the girls are really excited to see their hard work pay off.” On Friday, Hoover added another victory by winning the front half of the doubleheader, 7-6, over Marymount to begin competition in pool play of the fifth annual Burbank tourney, meaning a second victory in the back half would make the Tornadoes the winner of the three-team Pool C. “We did a very good job in the beginning of limiting their good shots,” Witt said of his team's win over Marymount.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — For the first time this season, Hoover High boys’ soccer Coach Kevin Cadenas saw his team out of sync. It didn’t come at a good time for the Tornadoes, who have played aggressive by winning many of the one-on-one battles to help catapult their way to the top of the Pacific League. Hoover couldn’t score and fell out of a tie for first place Wednesday afternoon following a scoreless tie against visiting Burroughs in a league match.
