She took the brunt of a nasty collision about five meters from the cage. Vanuhi Ovasapyan immediately winced in pain after she caught an accidental elbow to her nose from an overzealous defender during the first quarter of the Glendale High girls' water polo team's 10-9 come-from-behind victory in a CIF Southern Section Division IV quarterfinal match. Her nose bled briefly and the pain persisted. To nobody's surprise, she shook it off. Showing a remarkable threshold for pain, Ovasapyan went under water for a couple of seconds and calmly reappeared.

BURBANK — After weeks of preparation, months of competitive play and countless hours logged on the tennis courts, it came down to 12 athletes competing for just two Pacific League championships. Eight of the players taking part in the league finals Wednesday were from Burroughs, Burbank and Glendale high, as they were vying for one singles and one doubles title. While the Indians and Nitros players weren’t able to claim league crowns, the Bulldogs saw one of their own capture a singles title.

BURBANK — In what eventually played out as a microcosm of its play over the summer, the Glendale High boys’ basketball team struggled to a slow start in Tuesday afternoon’s first-round Burbank Summer League Tournament game against Grant. They peaked in the second quarter and the onset of the third before limping to a finish that saw the Nitros squander an 11-point third-quarter lead en route to a 56-49 Lancers victory at Burbank High. “We had a really up and down summer,” Glendale Coach Steve Snodgress said.

GLENDALE - With two weeks left in the regular season, the members of the Crescenta Valley High baseball team like their chances to win the Pacific League championship again. With Austin Brines on board and providing a steady bat in the heart of the Falcons' lineup, it's a big reason why they are in a good position. Brines drove in three runs to power Crescenta Valley to an 11-0 home victory against Glendale on Friday in a Pacific League game called in the fifth inning because of the 10-run mercy rule.

GLENDALE - In but its fourth year of existence, the Glendale High girls' lacrosse team was able to accomplish something that no other Nitros girls' squad has been able to in more than a decade. Perhaps coming without the pomp and circumstance of some other more established sports, the Nitros simply took care of business and made school history on Friday afternoon with complete dominance and relative ease. Scoring the first six goals of the match, the Nitros rolled to a 14-3 victory over Westridge, as Glendale won its first-ever Pacific League title.

Thursday provided just that situation and opportunity. Glendale staved off a late Crescenta Valley comeback bid to claim a 7-5 league home win bolstered by a big four-run first inning and highlighted by the fleet-footed talents of Sammy Fabian and the tenacity in the circle of Jordan Lousararian.

GLENDALE - Back in 2011, in its inaugural season, the Glendale High girls' lacrosse team finished winless in eight games, as the Nitros struggled to stay competitive, much less vie for league titles.

On Tuesday afternoon at Moyse Stadium, Glendale moved within one game of clinching a share of its first Pacific League championship by defeating Chaminade, 8-7.

GLENDALE - Scoring runs hasn't come easy as of late for the Glendale High baseball team. It's something Glendale first-year Coach Alan Eberhart had running through his mind Friday, leading up to the first of two season matchups against cross-town rival Hoover. If the Nitros had a quality scoring opportunity, Eberhart said he would not hesitate to send a runner home on a close play at the plate. The situation came to fruition Friday and Eberhart's gamble paid off for Glendale in a 1-0 Pacific League victory.
