SOUTHEAST GLENDALE ? In nonleague competition, the Glendale and Burbank high girls' tennis squads built a respectable rivalry. Now, they will look to do the same while participating in the Pacific League. The Nitros and Bulldogs completed their first league match Tuesday with the Nitros posting a 14-4 home victory. Burbank (1-2) joined the Pacific League, along with Burroughs, after a lengthy stint in the Foothill League. The Nitros (2-0) traditionally play Burbank during the first or second week of the season to prepare for the rigors of competing against perennial Pacific League powerhouses Crescenta Valley and Arcadia.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE ? It certainly wasn't an ordinary Pacific League opener for the Hoover and Burroughs high boys' water polo teams. The first-year coaches on both squads would attest to that assessment, though their defensive units seemed to take the day off in Burroughs' 19-17 road victory against Hoover on Tuesday. Hoover Coach Matt Jung and Burroughs Coach Kristina Garcia, a 2000 Glendale graduate, said following the 36-goal match, that defense had been a strong point.

GLENDALE — Weeks before the 2006-07 season began, first-year Hoover High soccer Coach Charles Martinez tabbed James Hernandez as the would-be catalyst for any success the Tornadoes might hope to have. Based on little more than reputation at the time, Martinez's instincts proved to be quite accurate indeed. Hoover rode the leadership and talent of the senior midfielder to its first-ever Pacific League title and a trip to the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs.

BURBANK — The Crescenta Valley High girls’ volleyball team was able to keep pace with host Burroughs for most of the afternoon on Tuesday, but the Indians were able to get some separation from the Falcons when they needed it most. In the final two games, Crescenta Valley hung with Burroughs into the 20s, although there was little to show for it in the end of a 25-19, 26-24, 25-21 Pacific League loss. “We need to be tougher at critical times and make fewer mistakes,” said Crescenta Valley Coach Jennifer Ryan, whose squad (11-5, 5-4 in league)

GLENDALE — Three years since the Pacific League had its major makeover, which included the addition of two teams, many of the coaches have stated that there hasn’t been ample time for the teams to schedule nonleague opponents before beginning competition in the seven-team league. Unfortunately for many of the Pacific League coaches, including Crescenta Valley High’s Sarah Wiggins, there’s isn’t much that can be done to change that since the season just began last week.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — One team played arguably its best game of the season. The other might have played its worst. Using a suffocating defense and steady offense, the Hoover High boys' basketball team defeated Burroughs, 47-38, in the Pacific League opener for both teams on Friday night at Hoover. "We finally focused the whole game," said Tornadoes Coach Vigen Jilizian, whose team finished third in league last season. "The things we worked on in practice, we carried over to the game."

GLENDALE — The past two days marked the culmination of a Pacific League season and the realization of a set of goals for the Crescenta Valley High boys' golf team. It also signaled the beginning of the Falcons' next objective. Tuesday, Crescenta Valley was crowned with its third consecutive Pacific League title following the league final quad match at Wilson Golf Course. The quad match also represented the opening round of the two-day league individual finals. Wednesday, the action moved to Harding Golf Course for the second round of the individual finals, where Justin Yu captured top honors as one of three Falcons to place in the top five out of 20. "They are a solid team and a pleasure to work with," Falcons Coach John Pehar said.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — To see the Glendale High boys' volleyball team's bench during the third game of Friday afternoon's Pacific League match, one might have thought a Pacific League title was on the line. It wasn't of course, but the Nitros — a young and inexperienced group — had a chance to win a game against reigning co-champion Arcadia. Hence, every Glendale point elicited cheers and brought the Nitros bench to its feet. Ultimately, the Apaches won in four games, 25-12, 25-8, 22-25, 25-18, but the Nitros' third-game victory was reason enough to get excited.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — With their season's goal already achieved, the Crescenta Valley High girls' volleyball team played the opening game of its Pacific League match at Hoover like a team in search of motivation. Whether they eventually found it or the Tornadoes simply could not keep up the energy of their near upset in the first game, the end result was a relatively easy 25-22, 25-15, 25-13 victory for the Falcons. "Its just hard to get them to focus," said Falcons Coach Jennifer Kunz Ryan, whose team came into Tuesday's match having already clinched fourth place in the Pacific League and the commensurate playoff berth.
