BURBANK - As the current junior class president at Glendale High, it's important for Shushanik Gabrielyan to stay on top of matters involving the student council, academics and extra-curricular activities. It's not that much different in the pool for Gabrielyan, the starting goalkeeper for the Glendale girls' water polo team. Whether its in the classroom or in the pool, plenty of her classmates and teammates count on Gabrielyan. Gabrielyan answered the bell Tuesday, as she made nine saves to spark second-seeded Glendale to a 3-2 victory against third-seeded Arcadia in a semifinal match of the Pacific League Tournament at Burbank High.

LA CAÑADA - Carlos Ponce wasn't discouraged after the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy water polo team suffered its second consecutive Mission League defeat Thursday. What left the Flintridge Sacred Heart coach frustrated was that the Tologs hit the post or crossbar six times in the first half in a home match against Louisville. Still, there's no reason for Ponce to sound the alarm. "There's a lot we came take from this game," Ponce said after Flintridge Sacred heart suffered a 6-2 defeat.

GLENDALE — The Glendale High girls' water polo team is the last area team standing. And as upsets continue to pile up, the Nitros find themselves headed into unchartered waters. Glendale will look for its next upset when it meets Rio Mesa in a CIF Southern Section Division IV quarterfinal match at 5 p.m. today at Burbank High. The Nitros (15-13) are the lone team from the Pacific League left in the playoffs, something that didn't figure to be the case during the regular season.

The Falcons of Crescenta Valley High School traveled to Flintridge Prep for a Mid-Valley Summer League Division I water polo match-up on July 26, against their rival, Glendale High School Nitros. Glendale beat Crescenta Valley 9-7, a week after the two schools met in Burbank. In a game that saw limited offense from the get-go, Glendale scored the only two goals in the first quarter, and both teams scored seven goals apiece the rest of the way to round out the final score. During a lackluster first quarter, Crescenta Valley was unable to get any looks on goal due to ineffective passing.

A scheduled arraignment for a Hoover High standout and former UCLA water polo accused of rape ended anticlimactically Thursday with no charges being filed, though prosecutors said that may yet change. Hakop Jack Kaplanyan, a redshirt freshman, was suspended from UCLA after his arrest earlier this month.  "All we can say is the matter is under review for filing consideration," said Shiara Davila-Morales, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles District Attorney's office. Kaplanyan, who is at home in Glendale and out on $200,000 bail, said the future of the case is uncertain.
