SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — Three goals were set forth by the Holy Family basketball team in its matchup with Alverno. First; limit the Jaguars' best player and prevent her from controlling the contest; second, score points; and third, win the game. The Gaels completed the first of the three goals but failed on the last two as they lost to Alverno, 44-23, in a Horizon League game on Tuesday at the Glendale YMCA. "We shut [Mary Claire Malooly] down with the fouls," said Holy Family Coach Victor Diaz of the Alverno star's foul trouble, who burned his team for 30 points in last year's meeting.

SOUTHWEST GLENDALE — With first place on the line, getting swept was the last thing on the minds of the Holy Family volleyball team. It became a reality and, along with it, the chance to win a Horizon League championship greatly diminished. Quite simply, Holy Family never found a rhythm during a 25-19, 25-18, 25-17 league loss to visiting Alverno on Tuesday afternoon at Pacific Park Community Center. Alverno (9-2, 5-0 in league) grabbed a stranglehold on first place by completing the two-match season sweep against Holy Family (11-3, 3-2)

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — The Holy Family girls' volleyball team bid a fond farewell to its senior players during a brief ceremony preceding its match against Alverno at the Glendale YMCA Thursday evening. Once the opening whistle blew, however, the Gaels made it clear they weren't yet ready to disappear into the offseason. Seniors Joanne Lacson and Jasmin Viray stepped up with big games, leading a complete team effort to topple the Horizon League leading Jaguars 25-16, 25-17, 25-19.

SIERRA MADRE - For a team featuring six seniors in the starting lineup, Holy Family softball Coach Greg Ziomek didn't like what he saw from the Gaels during a key Horizon League contest Thursday. Much to Ziomek's surprise, the Gaels committed four errors in a 9-0 loss against host Alverno. Holy Family came into the game tied for second with Alverno in league behind defending league champion San Gabriel Mission. A victory by the Gaels in the first of two head-to-head meetings with the Jaguars would have boosted the Gaels' confidence.

SOUTHWEST GLENDALE - It was a furious, yet improbable and perhaps unforeseen offensive outburst for the Holy Family basketball team in the fourth quarter of its Horizon League contest with first-place Bishop Conaty-Loretto. The second-place Gaels struggled in the first three quarters of the second meeting of the season between the two teams, struggling to make just six field goals for 16 points. Then everything changed. Led by Gaby Diaz, Holy Family's offense came alive in the fourth quarter, as the team shot seven of 18 and outscored Bishop Conaty-Loretto by 10 in the frame to hand the Wildcats their first loss in league play this season, 36-32, Tuesday at Pacific Park Community Center.

Holy Family volleyballHoly Family relinquishes two late-game leads as it is swept by Horizon League champion, Alverno, 25-15, 25-22, 25-22 at YMCA.SOUTHEAST GLENDALE -- After one game, it seemed as though the host Holy Family girls' volleyball team would simply be no match for perennial Horizon League-power Alverno. But then, the Gaels showed, indeed, they had what it took to compete with the league's best. It wasn't even the Jaguars who created the most trouble for the Gaels, as miscommunication and hitting errors aided mightily in Holy Family's 25-15, 25-22, 25-22 loss Tuesday afternoon at its home court at the Glendale YMCA.

SOUTHWEST GLENDALE — A strong first quarter made for a great start for the Holy Family basketball team on Tuesday night. Unfortunately for the Gaels, it was also the beginning of the end, as the team lost its way offensively in the second quarter and never righted things in a 39-29 loss to visiting Horizon League foe-Alverno at the Pacific Park Community Center. “We froze and, for whatever reason, every time we see a 3-2 zone, we just happen to freeze,” said Holy Family Coach Ernest Siy, whose team is in third place in league.

A season ago, the Flintridge Prep girls' basketball team went 7-18 and received a surprising at-large bid into the playoffs. Thus, the turnaround orchestrated by first-year co-coaches Kevin Kiyomura and Jayme Kiyomura-Chan has been rather impressive. Evidence to that came Sunday, when the Rebels, after posting a 16-7 record and a second-place finish in the Prep League, were granted the No. 4 seed in the CIF Southern Section Division 5-AA playoffs. “I'm very happy,” said Kiyomura, whose team will host California Military in Thursday's first round at 7 p.m. “Granted, we don't know a whole lot about California Military, but we're really excited about getting in [to the playoffs]

SOUTHWEST GLENDALE - All of those losses that piled up throughout December and into early January are now a distant memory for the members of the Holy Family basketball team.

On Tuesday night, the Gaels found another way to win despite surrendering an eight-point lead in the fourth quarter before going overtime against the defending league champion. Holy Family turned to a sophomore guard to keep the Gaels heading down the right path.
