Your description of a Glendale City Council candidate as “considered a front-runner” in the field piques my curiosity (“ Sinanyan keeps seat for now ,” March 13). This undefined pronouncement makes me wonder who is doing the considering. The article's author? The News-Press editor? Outside expert(s)? A Glendalian stopped on the street? What criteria were used to rank the field, and based on what evidence? Campaign contributions? Likes on Facebook? Polling data? Subjective impressions?

WALNUT -- "Well, he's not unknown anymore," mused longtime Nitro track and field Coach John Barnes. No. No he's not. No one remains a secret for long when he goes out and wins the 800 meters in two of the nation's most prestigious high school track and field meets on consecutive weekends, as Glendale High's Argishti Beglaryan did, following his seeded victory at the Arcadia Invitational on April 13 with an even...

The conspicuous size differences between beefy sprinters and lithesome distance runners are dictated by simple rules of form and function, according to researchers from Rice University and the Texas Medical Center's National Center for Human Performance. Specifically, the greater bulk of speed demons is explained by their need to hit the running surface harder to attain their faster speeds. Details of the findings linking the speed a runner needs to achieve and the ideal body mass for performance appeared in the July 15 issue of the Journal of Experimental Biology in a study authored by Peter Weyand and Adam Davis.

GLENDALE - Whether they practiced in the 95-degree, mid-afternoon heat or during cooler, crisper mornings, it didn't seem to matter what time or venue the Glendale Community College women's cross-country team prepared for the upcoming season, which kicks off Saturday at the Mark Covert Classic. It seemed everywhere the squad went, there was also a giant shadow cast by the talented 2012 team, led by All-American Grace Zamudio. The aforementioned Grace Zamudio was part of the 2011 California Community College Cross-Country Championship team that was followed with a runner-up up performance in 2012, which extended the program's streak of eight consecutive years of a state top-three finish.

SOUTH PASADENA - It didn't take long for South Pasadena High girls' cross-country Coach Patrick McGrail to realize what type of season he would receive from sophomore Helena Van Loan. The youngster was a relative unknown last season who came on strong in finishing second (19 minutes and 35 seconds) at the Rio Hondo League finals and eventually leading the Tigers at the CIF Southern Section Division III finals at Mt. San Antonio College. "There was an expectation that she would have a strong season, but again, she's only a sophomore and the progress she made this season was really impressive," McGrail said.

ARCADIA - The cross-country runners from the Pacific League had to wait an additional four days to finally contest the second league meet of the season. The event at Arcadia Park was originally scheduled for Thursday, but had to be postponed because of rain, hail and lighting that pelted the area. The runners experienced a complete turnaround in weather conditions in the make-up meet Monday, as the athletes were greeted with bright sunshine and temperatures in the 90s. Despite the extra time off, runners and teams turned in some impressive performances on the fast, flat  course.

Peter Samore STENGEL FIELD -- It was the perfect situation for a comeback. Going into the bottom of the seventh inning of a Connie Mack baseball game Wednesday, Haugens was down by the only run it allowed in the fourth. Haugens had runners on second and third with one out. The runner at third looked to tie the game on Providence Pioneer catcher Mike Reyes' passed ball, but it didn't go far from the plate. Reyes had enough time to tag the runner out at home as well as eliminate any Haugens chances of a win. Relief pitcher Mo Gomez then struck out Jose Pompa to seal a 1-0 Providence win at Stengel Field.

GLENDALE - In one regard, Glendale Community College baseball's five runs all coming with two outs showed how potentially clutch the Vaqueros can be. But loading the bases twice and coming away without runs both times showcased the other end of the spectrum and ultimately proved crucial in the Vaqueros falling Thursday afternoon in a key Western State Conference South Division tilt to L.A. Mission, 6-5, in 10 innings at Stengel Field. “Score one, it's a completely different ball game,” said GCC Coach Chris Cicuto, whose team stranded 11 runners.

With defeat fresh in his mind, Hoover High senior wrestler Arthur Ghukasyan wasn't in any mood to talk about history Saturday evening. The Tornadoes 160-pounder suffered a difficult loss to Victor Valley senior Michael Lopez in the title bout of the CIF Southern Section Eastern Division Individual Championships at Perris Citrus Hill High. While Lopez is now able to carry the honor of being a divisional champion, a merit that Ghukasyan craved, the Hoover wrestler earned himself another valuable distinction as Ghukasyan became his school's first qualifier to the CIF-Southern Section Masters Meet, which begins Friday at Citizen Bank Arena in Ontario.

After finishing runner-up in the California Community College Athletic Assn. Golf Championship last season for the second straight year, the Glendale Community College women's golf team has undergone major changes, as there are no links to the last two years remaining. Greg Osbourne resigned his coaching post in June following three successful seasons to become director of golf at Cal State Bakersfield. The Vaqueros brought in Natalie Guidry to become the Vaqueros' new coach on July 18. While the Vaqueros had plenty of depth to help them win the Western State Conference championship and take second in the Southern California Regionals last season, that won't be the case when the season begins Monday with a conference match at Olivas Links Golf Course in Ventura.
