BURBANK — Holding opposing teams to less than 50 points has become a staple for the Hoover High girls' basketball squad this season. It's been the main reason behind the Tornadoes starting the season on a torrid note, evidenced by a five-game winning streak in which they didn't yield more than 49 points. Those two streaks ended Friday night, as Hoover suffered a 62-53 loss to powerful Valencia in a semifinal game of the 24th annual Magnolia Park Optimist Club Holiday Tournament at Burroughs High.

Charles Rich BURBANK -- Glendale High girls' basketball Coach Errol Garnett peered onto the court with some exasperation Tuesday night. Garnett's squad had suddenly stopped executing on the fundamentals it had conquered en route to a four-game winning streak in Summer League competition. It also would have helped Glendale if someone other than Arpi Babakhanian could provide some scoring punch. Babakhanian scored a team-high 14 points in Glendale's 59-39 loss to Valencia in a Burroughs High Summer Jam on Tuesday.

Kevin Traber knows how miserable it is to be ill. Born in La Crescenta, he was trained as a flight nurse and served in the first Gulf War transporting injured and sick personnel during Desert Storm/Shield. As an emergency room nurse for 20 years, he's worked with patients as a hands-on health care practitioner and then in medicine administration. Finally, as the father of three active sons, he's been on the receiving end of emergency services. And many times he found these services sadly lacking.

Mirjam Swanson SOUTHEAST GLENDALE -- Talk about your different strokes. The Valencia boys' tennis team was nit-picking every minute detail, tattling on one another to their coach about exactly how many double faults each of them had, rating each Glendale players' respective left and right hands, and thereby sealing the deal in the Vikings 13-5 nonleague win on the Nitros' courts Monday. Meanwhile, Glendale -- playing for the first time since spring break and without its usual No. 1 singles player Robert Yim, who was off in the Easter Invitational in Palm Springs -- was just trying to grab ahold of a match that so quickly got away.

LA CRESCENTA ? A lack of rebounding proved to be the bane for the Crescenta Valley High girls? basketball team, which saw its season end Thursday night with a 62-51 loss to visiting Valencia in a CIF Southern Section Division I-A wild-card contest. Valencia out rebounded Crescenta Valley, 44-26, and never trailed in a contest that featured 40 personal fouls.

BURBANK — The Crescenta Valley High girls' basketball team did just enough during Tuesday's Burroughs Summer League matchup with Valencia to ensure they were never out of the game. However, thanks to a sluggish start and the lack of any consistent offense, the Falcons never really challenged the Vikings either — getting no closer than seven points in the second half before losing 44-37. "We walked into the game and we were not focused and ready to play," Crescenta Valley Coach Jason Perez said.

VALENCIA ? For all the character put on display by the underdog Crescenta Valley High boys? basketball team, its 60-57 loss on the road to Valencia in the CIF Southern Section Division II-AA first round was all the more heartbreaking. In the end, a long-range prayer by Crescenta Valley standout Clay Sierra went unanswered just before the buzzer sounded on the Falcons? season. Nevertheless, it was the play of seniors Sierra and Eric Strangis, along with the overall tenacious play of the team, that most assuredly stood as the highlight for the Falcons.

A season ago, Crescenta Valley High's boys' soccer team rallied on the road in the opening round of the playoffs to defeat Placentia Valencia. Once more, the Falcons found themselves in the same place, the same round and in a game with much the same, nailbiting feel. But this time around, it was Crescenta Valley that was left with the sting of a dramatic end to its season, as Valencia prevailed, 1-1 (8-7) in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs on Thursday evening.

LA CAÑADA - For the past 10 months, the members of the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy volleyball team waited. After seeing their season end last year with a heartbreaking CIF Southern Section Division I-A first-round playoff loss to Valencia Valencia, the Tologs were eager to see how they could channel their maturation on the court Thursday with a rematch against the Vikings.

VALENCIA - Cliched as it can sound, volleyball often is a game of runs. That proved true, at least for the first three games, on Tuesday evening when Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy faced off with host Valencia Valencia in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division I-A playoffs. But, while the Tologs and Vikings traded momentum and games, rarely did they trade points over the first three games, which were uncharacteristic of a close match in their lopsided scores. When the fourth and deciding fifth games played out, a back-and-forth nature somewhat came to fruition, but Sacred Heart's inexperience so too came to the forefront, as the upstart Tologs lost their upset bid to the Vikings, 10-25, 25-12, 5-25, 25-18, 15-12.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Unbeaten in the 2011 Vaquero Summer Classic heading into the playoff round, the Glendale High boys' basketball team had a chance to move forward into the championship game when it took on Valencia on Saturday at Glendale Community College. Instead, the Nitros took a step back from their solid summer play of late, wilting under the weight of too many turnovers and not enough offense in the second half of a 51-44 loss. "We just flat out turned the ball over too much today and that was our killer," said Glendale Coach Steve Snodgress, whose team took a 23-17 lead into halftime, but lost it for good early in the second half.

PASADENA — Around most of the diamond, several red flags popped up for the St. Francis High baseball team during its season opener Friday afternoon. The Golden Knights committed four errors and their ace pitcher struggled with his command, leading to an 11-2 loss against Valencia in an Easton Tournament contest at Jackie Robinson Field. It's something St. Francis Coach Brian Esquival had hoped the Golden Knights could avoid, but some of the mishaps weren't entirely unexpected.
