Hamlet Nalbandyan ARCADIA -- Judging from Thursday's performance, one has to wonder how the Hoover High boys' water polo team lost to Pasadena High in the regular season. The Tornadoes dominated in every facet of the match, rolling to a 13-7 victory in the third-place game of the Pacific League Championships at Arcadia High. Earlier in the year, Hoover had lost to the Bulldogs, 14-12. But with the victory Thursday, the Tornadoes advanced to the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs for the first time since 1994.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan Officially, the La Canada High girls' volleyball team was awarded the No. 1 seed in the CIF Southern Section Division IIIAA playoffs when the postseason pairings were announced Sunday in Los Alamitos. Unofficially, the Spartans might have had the most unfavorable draw. On the bright side, La Canada will have a couple of more days off until it hosts either Lakewood St. Joseph or Santa Paula at 7 p.m. Thursday. Unfortunately for the Spartans, St. Joseph is ranked No. 1 in the division, and is likely to defeat Santa Paula.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan If a spectator walked past the Hoover High girls' basketball players following their CIF Southern Section Division IA playoff game against Temescal Valley, one would think the Tornadoes won their wild-card game. The Tornadoes joked with each other, one of them -- 5-foot-4 freshman guard Rachael Estrella -- predicted she would dunk by her senior season and another -- sophomore Annette Arzoo -- called her team the Seven Dwarfs.

From Staff Reports Glendale vs. Hoover at Moyse Field, 7 p.m.: The 75th meeting between Glendale and Hoover won't have as much intrigue as originally thought. With Crescenta Valley's 42-21 loss to Arcadia Thursday night, the Nitros don't necessarily need their fourth consecutive victory against the Tornadoes to make the postseason for the first time since 1991. That's because Glendale (4-5, 2-2 in league) has already clinched a CIF Southern Section Division III berth, because it'll own any possible tiebreaker with CV (4-5, 2-3)

Saturday in a Western State Conference Southern Division contest, the Glendale Community College women's basketball team felt the backlash in the pairings of the Southern California Regional playoff bracket. A win at West L.A. could have secured a No. 9 seed and a home game in the playoffs, but due to a poor shooting night, GCC (17-12)

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — The Glendale-Hoover high rivalry burns intensely even under the most benign of circumstances, but when you add playoff and league title implications for both sides, that’s when things really get heated. The Tornadoes and host Nitros’ objectives were directly at odds with each other on Thursday afternoon, with Hoover most likely needing a win to stay in the Pacific League title hunt and Glendale facing likely elimination from playoff contention with a loss.

GLENDALE — It will be more of the same for one area high school boys’ soccer team and something new for two others.
