SOUTH PASADENA — A sign that things weren’t clicking for the Hoover High girls’ basketball team came in the first minute. After watching his team fall behind quickly following three turnovers, Hoover second-year Coach Martik Ghookasian called a timeout. “I don’t know if we didn’t click or we started off without having the right attitude,” said Ghookasian, whose team was handed a 31-7 loss by Pacific League foe Arcadia on Wednesday afternoon in a South Pasadena High Summer League contest.

GLENDALE — With nearly a decade of experience serving as the top assistant for the Hoover High girls’ basketball team, Martik Ghookasian will now learn about what it’s like to be the program’s head coach. Ghookasian was tabbed as Hoover’s new coach Thursday after spending the past nine years as an assistant under Jack Van Patten, who Ghookasian will succeed so Van Patten can concentrate on being the school’s athletic director. “I feel very honored,” said Ghookasian, who graduated from Hoover in 1998 after playing guard for two seasons on the boys’ varsity squad.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — Give the first round of the cross-town rivalry to the Hoover High girls' basketball team in resounding form. With clutch shooting from its standout player and timely defense and rebounding, Hoover coasted to a convincing 81-46 victory against Glendale on Friday night in the third-place game of the Hoover Tip-Off Classic. From the players to the coaches, nobody expected the Tornadoes (3-1) to win by 35 points. Hoover senior forward/guard Annette Arzoo even seemed shocked with the final result.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — Even after the Hoover High girls’ basketball team managed to score just one point in the second quarter, there weren’t any signs of panic on the horizon. For starters, the Tornadoes allowed only one point in the quarter. More importantly, they still had a big enough cushion they could cling to. Hoover got a big 12-point effort from freshman forward Allison Zalin on Thursday night to pick up a 31-20 victory against L.A. Marshall in a pool-play contest of the Hoover Tip-Off Classic.

GLENDALE — Jack Van Patten will no longer be roaming the courts as coach of the Hoover High girls’ basketball team. However, he will still be visible in the landscape of Hoover athletics. Van Patten recently opted to resign as coach after nine seasons so he could continue to serve as Hoover’s athletic director and teach full time. It’s not clear who will succeed Van Patten, who graduated from Hoover in 1980 after playing for several seasons on the school’s boys’ basketball team.
