ONTARIO - While satisfaction proved elusive for Hoover High senior Arthur Ghukasyan at Saturday afternoon's second day of the CIF Southern Section Masters Wrestling Meet at Citizens Business Bank Arena, the Tornadoes grappler was far from disappointing. Ghukasyan finished 1-2 on Saturday, but completed a 4-2 run through the tournament in a 160-pound division that featured the No. 1 and 3 wrestlers in state. Overall, Ghukasyan took fourth place and, just as importantly, earned a berth to next weekend's season-ending CIF State Championships held at Bakersfield's Rabobank Arena.

On March 28, Glendale High School will rename its auditorium the John Wayne Performing Arts Center in honor of its most well-known alumnus. This led me to wonder if Hoover High had any famous graduates of its own who may qualify for naming rights for its edifices. The good news is that I did, indeed, find someone famous; the bad news is that it is someone infamous. First, allow me to flashback to a few weeks ago when I attended a UCLA Film Archive screening at the Hammer Museum in Westwood as part of the director Anthony Mann film retrospective.

A nine-wrestler contingent from Hoover High was reduced to two advancers after the first day of the CIF Southern Section Eastern Division Individual Wrestling Championships at Perris Citrus Hill High. Only Tornadoes senior Artur Ghukasyan and sophomore Narek Zamanyan are still in contention for a Masters Meet bid. Ghukasyan turned in a brilliant effort, finishing 2-0 and advancing to the 160-pound championship semifinals, where he'll face San Jacinto's Mark Aceval on Saturday.

The Arturo Sandoval concert on Feb. 8 at the Alex Theatre was among the very best music events ever held in Glendale. Sandoval himself is inspirational. At 64, he is an exciting, trumpeting, drumming, piano-playing bandleader like no other. He captured the hearts of the audience from his opening words, “the most important thing in life is freedom!” Dizzy Gillespie, Sandoval's jazz mentor, was instrumental in securing escape from Castro's Cuba and Sandoval's entry into the United States.

When the Hoover High wrestling team sets foot to mat at this weekend's CIF Southern Section Eastern Division Individual Wrestling Championships at Perris Citrus Hill High, it will have almost been three weeks since the Tornadoes have officially competed. Perhaps it could be argued that the fledgling three-year program enjoyed its greatest day at the Rio Hondo League individual wrestling finals at Monrovia High on Feb. 1. There, the Tornadoes captured two league titles and advanced all 10 wresters to the Eastern Division championships, although only nine will make the trip.

Last week Hoover High had a Recruitment Night for the eighth-grade parents of Toll Middle School. About a few dozen Toll parents showed up. More than 100 Hoover students and faculty were in attendance. What's wrong with this picture? There are 450 eighth-graders at Toll; if 45 families were present that night, that would translate to a 10% return, with 90% no-shows. Back in September, I bemoaned the low parent turnout for Back to School Night. This night was more disheartening.

GLENDALE - Teo Davidian broke open a close game in a hurry. The Hoover High boys' senior basketball player had no trouble soaking in the environment while playing in front of a noisy crowd Thursday night. Davidian scored 13 of his game-high 22 points in the fourth quarter to propel visiting Hoover to a 64-52 Pacific League victory against crosstown rival Glendale. “My teammates carried me into the fourth quarter and I wanted to come out and make a statement and help us win,” said Davidian, a forward.
