A black hen named Lucky that ruffled some feathers in Glendale has passed away. Lucky pecked its way to stardom in 2010, after taking up residence behind the electronic billboard at Glendale Community College for two months. The well-fed bird had dodged animal control officers several times by attempting risky flight maneuvers into traffic at Verdugo Road and Mountain Street. Authorities from the Pasadena Humane Society said the chicken was creating dangerous traffic conditions for drivers.

LA CRESCENTA — If you looked up and down the bench, the odds of finding a starting player from the Crescenta Valley High boys’ basketball team on it in foul trouble would have been good. One by one, the Falcons picked up personal fouls at an alarming rate, most of them earned trying to keep up with the fast pace dictated by Simi Valley. Though just one Crescenta Valley player managed to foul out, trying to mix and match player combinations proved to be for naught against a talented Simi Valley squad.

LA CRESCENTA — As first impressions go, it was hard to fault the new-look Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team's debut Tuesday night on its home court in the Falcon Classic. Senior guard Cole Currie, the main holdover from last year's CIF semifinalist squad, led the way with 24 points while sitting out the fourth quarter, while several of the Falcons' first-year starters got off to a good start in a dominant 74-35 pool-play win over Simi Valley. "We're a young team and we're still getting used to each other a little bit," said Currie, who also had six rebounds and five steals.

BURBANK — On an afternoon on which a win seemingly wouldn't have required much scoring, the Glendale High girls' basketball team just didn't have enough. Despite going the majority of the second half without scoring a field goal, the Nitros trailed by just one or two possessions all the way to the end. They also had their last-chance possession while trailing by a mere two points extended by an offensive rebound and a loose ball won, only to suffer a 36-34 loss to Simi Valley in a Burroughs High Summer League game on Tuesday.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Will Davis normally doesn't pitch. On Monday night, he had no other choice but to take the mound. Davis' task was quite clear before uncorking a pitch — win the game to keep the La Crescenta 15-year-old Babe Ruth All-Star team's season alive. Davis met the challenge, as he scattered four hits to help propel La Crescenta to an 11-1 win against Simi Valley in an elimination contest of the state tournament at Stengel Field. The game was called in the bottom of the fifth inning because of the 10-run mercy rule.

THOUSAND OAKS — "Carmageddon" didn't stop the La Crescenta 14-year-old Babe Ruth baseball team from making it to Thousand Oaks High on Saturday morning. The closure of the 405 Freeway for construction and maintenance near the vicinity didn't prove to be much of a deterrent for the locals, but they did encounter some gridlock on the field in their attempt to cut a clear path to the championship game of the Babe Ruth League Southern California State Tournament. La Crescenta was knocked from the winner's bracket in its morning game against El Segundo with a 9-1 loss before rallying back to the championship round with a 9-5 win over Simi Valley in a loser's bracket game Saturday afternoon.

BURBANK - With five shots at a game-winning field goal in the final minute of play, the odds would figure to have been in the Glendale High girls' basketball team's favor. Alas, the Nitros came up short each time in a 22-19 loss to Sun Valley Poly in a Burroughs High summer league basketball game Tuesday afternoon. It appeared Glendale had plenty of time to make a comeback, down 20-19 with three minutes and 50 seconds to play, and take back the lead it held in the first 13:30 of the contest.

SIMI VALLEY - Should the Glendale Community College women's golf team win a second straight Western State Conference championship, it might look back at what transpired during Monday's conference match as being quite significant. Glendale college came into the latest round at Simi Hills Golf Course having won three of the first four conference matches. Wednesday proved to be the closet battle that the Vaqueros have encountered this season. The Vaqueros and rival College of the Canyons finished tied for first with scores of 321, but Glendale won in a tiebreaker by virtue of its fifth scorer shooting three strokes lower than Canyons.

One way or another, the road to Surprise, Ariz. would have to go through Westchester, but, despite two valiant efforts, the Southern California powerhouse was once again just too much for the Glendale 14-Year-Old Babe Ruth Baseball Team. Glendale fought its way back to the championship game of the double-elimination 14-Year-Old Babe Ruth Southern California State Tournament on Tuesday, where it was handed its second loss to Westchester, 7-5, at Simi Valley Baseball League Field.
