Amber Willard GLENDALE -- San Gabriel is the newest addition to the Verdugo Communications Center, started 15 years ago by Glendale, Burbank and Pasadena. San Gabriel is the ninth city to join the 911 system, which has computer-aided dispatching that connects all of the areas. By linking to the system, San Gabriel will also help pay for the $1.7-million annual operation cost. The nine cities split the costs on the basis of size and number of calls.

GLENDALE — A first-ever meeting between the Flintridge Prep and Renaissance Academy boys’ basketball teams became a distinct possibility when both teams found themselves in the same pool of the San Gabriel Tournament earlier this week. The matchup never came to fruition, as both teams managed to stay undefeated through the first three rounds while never crossing paths. A 57-31 win for Prep over host San Gabriel on Friday night, coupled with a 61-33 win by Renaissance earlier Friday against El Monte, saw both teams emerge from pool play with perfect 3-0 records.

In some respects, fielding has become a lost art of sorts on the baseball diamond. With an increasing emphasis of the game placed on offense and more offense, the steady and even stunning plays supplied in the field are often overlooked. However, the importance of making all those plays is not lost on Kris Kauppila, who, with his glove, has often turned the spectacular into routine. The Crescenta Valley High shortstop is a throwback of sorts, a kid who savors his time spent in the field as much, if not more, than stepping up to the plate.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — Hoover High boys' basketball Coach Vigen Jilizian doesn't mind low-scoring affairs. In fact, he prefers them. The coach liked what he saw on Wednesday night, as the Tornadoes defeated San Gabriel, 46-39, in pool play of the Hoover Classic Tournament. "As a coach you can never be concerned when your team is thinking too much defensively," said Jilizian, whose team defeated South Pasadena, 69-55, the Tuesday. "I like [Wednesday's] game better. "I don't mind these low scores.

LOS ANGELES — Just like they were in Ohio in August, all eyes were on the members of the San Gabriel Valley Babe Ruth All-Stars on Thursday. Except this stage might just have been a bit grander. The squad stood alone on the field at Dodger Stadium as it was honored for capturing the 16-18 Babe Ruth World Series title, prior to the Dodgers’ game with the San Diego Padres. Some picked pieces of the infield grass, others used their cell phones to capture lasting images and each and every member heard their name echo through the stadium during individual introductions.

ARCADIA — When the Arroyo Seco and San Gabriel Valley Babe Ruth All-Star squads get together, it's not your ho-hum Babe Ruth game. "We go head to head every year," said Arroyo Seco Coach Aaron Milam, an assistant on the St. Francis High team. "It's a big rivalry." In past years, it's a rivalry San Gabriel has gotten the best of, though. After all, it's won the World Series in Ohio two of the last three years. This time around, things are a bit different. "That's a good team," said San Gabriel Coach Phil Torres, who's also the head coach for Crescenta Valley High.

It was the first play from scrimmage to be exact, as Nitros junior running back Daniel Jung turned the corner on a pitch to the right and saw nothing but open field in front of him.

The following are previews of the area's upcoming high school football games this week. For four straight years, La Cañada High owned its annual football matchup with Glendale. It all came to an end in 2012. Not only was last year's 21-3 victory over the Spartans the Nitros' first since 2008, but their first win against a team other than Hoover since Sept. 24, 2009. “I think it was an important step,” said second-year Glendale Coach John Tuttle, who hasn't found victories as hard to come by at Glendale after going 3-7 last year.
