GLENDALE — With the deck stacked against the Flintridge Prep girls’ tennis team opposing a No. 1 seed, Rebels Coach Ron Catano did what he could to reshuffle things in his favor.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — An elongated break leading up to the CIF playoffs couldn’t have been more conducive to success for the members of the Glendale High boys’ tennis team. Glendale senior singles player Ashot Papikian needed the time to work on some facets of his game. So did his teammates. The extra time paid huge dividends for the Nitros. Papikian lost just one game in his three sets to help spark host Glendale to a convincing 15-3 victory against Righetti on Tuesday afternoon in a CIF Southern Section Division II wild-card match.

GLENDALE — Once they arrived in Palm Desert for the Southern California Regionals on Tuesday, the members of the Glendale Community College men’s tennis team didn’t have much time to bask in the fine season that got them there. Faced with windy conditions and stiff competition, the Vaqueros were thoroughly overmatched by College of the Desert, the No. 1-ranked team in the state, 5-0. “[The Roadrunners] are a good team and I have no qualms, our guys battled pretty good,” veteran Glendale college Coach Bob MacKay said.

Much of the roster for the Glendale High boys' tennis team has changed from 2010 to 2012, but for longtime Nitros Coach Bob Davidson, it might very well have felt as if nothing much has changed. Glendale took a very long trip south to play top-seeded Palm Desert in the CIF Southern Section Division II first round, arriving a bit late in the process due to AP testing. And, once again, the Nitros took the very long trip back north after a lopsided loss, as Palm Desert showed no mercy in thumping Glendale, 18-0, on Wednesday.

GLENDALE — It was simply a forgettable Wednesday altogether for Coach Bob Davidson and his Glendale High boys’ tennis team. It began with a handful of his players taking AP tests and getting out roughly 45 minutes later than expected. After that, due to transportation problems, Glendale’s bus did not arrive at its destination until some 10 minutes after its match was to have already begun. In the end, a 3 p.m. start time became a 4 p.m. start. All that was simply a precursor to the Nitros’ season concluding with a 17-1 loss to top-seeded Palm Desert in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division II players.

RIVERSIDE - While Jocelyn Chia's score was impressive, Crescenta Valley High girls' golf Coach Lee Pope was far more impressed with what she did off the course Thursday in the CIF Southern Section Eastern Team Divisional. With officials busy tallying up individual and team scores at the end of the tournament, Chia noticed a discrepancy in her score. With her two-over-par 73 and a team score of 420, the Falcons were still in contention of advancing to the next round of CIF. The three-time All-Area Girls' Golfer of the Year realized she'd signed an incorrect score card, though - she'd actually shot a 74 - and went to the officials with the news.
