Charles Rich NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- A call up to the Loyola High varsity baseball squad next spring might happen for Loyola High's Terry Walsh. A promotion will depend upon how Walsh can perform the next few weeks for Loyola in Mickey Mantle League competition. Walsh's quest began Friday night. Walsh, who played on Loyola's junior varsity team in 2001, had the game-winning hit to lead Loyola to a come-from-behind 9-7 victory against Calabasas in a Mantle League game called after six innings due to the two-hour, 20-minute time rule Friday night at Stengel Field.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- Before the Pacific League boys' and girls' swim meet between Crescenta Valley and Hoover highs even began, everybody in the vicinity of the Tornado pool envisioned total domination by the Falcons. In a contest that paired two diverse opponents, CV won 20 of the 22 combined events on the varsity level -- and the 19 events on the junior varsity stage -- Wednesday in front of many Falcon faithful. The CV boys' varsity team won, 129-36, to improve to 5-1, 3-0 in league.

Sixteen years ago Glendale Unified School District's Gifted and Talented Education program began a competition that challenges not physical strength, although stamina plays a major role, but brain power as its key component. Last week's competition marked the 16th annual Scholastic Bowl. Students from Crescenta Valley, Glendale, Hoover and Clark Magnet high schools competed for the title. At CVHS the competition began months ago when history teacher and scholastic coach Vickie Bouldin began tryouts for the competition.

It's not fun to write about because it's sloppy basketball. It's not appealing for a coach because it's the dog-days of summer, when either a) half of the starters are missing, b) some players don't seem like they care or c) an opposing team doesn't show up and a squad is forced to play junior varsity athletes. And, for the players, it's not enjoyable to play games because, in all honestly, the wins or losses don't mean anything. For some girls' basketball high school teams, their summer league performances are an indication of things to come once games matter.

The Crescenta Valley boys? JV basketball team had another solid showing last Friday night when they took on Arcadia at CV. The Falcons needed a strong defense in order to end the first half up and they got it, led by Henry Leff, though a last second shot by Arcadia narrowed the score to 30-29 CV. The third quarter was truly breakout for the Falcons. Leff remained focused coming back on the boards, with he and Mohammad ?Mo? Shahnowaz took the lead in the third quarter. The team quickly racked up seven points, including a three-pointer by Vinny Espinoza, before Arcadia caught two.

It was a full moon and a clear cold night. Might have been an opening for some sort of novel, but these were the conditions of last Friday's opener for the Crescenta Valley boys' varsity baseball game against alumni from the same school that stood on this Stengel Field so many years ago. Whether or not this alumni team had practiced did not seem to matter, as they seemed to have the talent to match the younger players. The elders defeated their younger generation, 11-5, thanks to a six-run eighth inning, and giving the current Falcons more reason to practice for the upcoming season.
