Victim Edvin Isagulyan was my student in advanced composition at DeVry University in West Hills. Edvin was a sensitive young man who was fiercely loyal to his Armenian heritage and his Glendale neighborhood. In his essays, he wrote of being proud of his family and their help in supporting his university education.

Alecia Foster GLENDALE -- Although local resident Ruth Sowby and her son attended the same college at the same time, they almost never saw each other. In fact, Sowby said she only saw her son on campus once as they passed one another in front of the library. At that moment, there was only one thing for a mother to do. "I ran up to him and kissed him," Sowby said. The two never crossed paths again on the campus of USC, however, they did come together recently to celebrate their graduation from the university.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan The St. Francis High football team could ill-afford another loss. Not while playing in the always-tough Mission League, not with games against Santa Fe Springs St. Paul and Sherman Oaks Notre Dame still to be played and not while facing an underdog in West Hills Chaminade on Friday night at Friedman Field. But Kevin Herron and Jason Turner made sure the Golden Knights wouldn't put a damper on their CIF Southern Section Division III playoff hopes, combining for 294 rushing yards and three touchdowns in a 30-13 victory.

Karen S. Kim BURBANK -- Burbank's incumbent legislators won't have too much trouble gaining a party nomination in the March 5 primary -- they're running unopposed. But they said they're not planning to rest on their laurels. "I don't take anything for granted," Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) said. "This is our community's seat in Congress. It's not anyone's to have or own. I'm going to work hard to maintain the confidence of people I represent."

WEST HILLS — A long season now comes down to one final game for the St. Francis High football team. It’s win or go home. The Golden Knights had an opportunity to secure one of the Mission League’s two playoff spots on Friday night, but a 19-14 loss to host Chaminade put a damper on those plans. With at least three league squads having a loss, a victory against St. Paul in the season finale could net a league co-championship and will keep St. Francis’ season alive.

Charles Rich TUJUNGA -- The two headaches came and went while Verdugo Hills baseball pitcher Wes Tom made his first American Legion start Monday. Strapped with a week-long cold and several headaches, Tom didn't let the ailments affect him during Verdugo Hills 4-3 loss to the West Hills Chaminade B team at Tujunga Field on Monday. Tom held Chaminade scoreless entering the seventh inning -- shortly after the second headache evaporated -- before yielding three earned runs to a squad which reached the CIF Southern Section Division IV semifinal game last month.

Erik Boal All the signs pointed to a script with a Hollywood ending that was six years in the making. Frank Pace would produce it. Kathy Desmond would take directorial credit and their Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team would gladly act out the parts of a group that has overcome so many near misses in the past to finally qualify for the postseason. But as they have done so many times in previous years, Woodland Hills Louisville pulled the curtain on the Tologs' potential storybook ending, playing the role of spoiler again Monday up the hill.

WEST HILLS  -  In less than a minute, cheers of celebration switched from the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls' soccer team's to Chaminade's sideline. It appeared the Tologs had the first goal in the 45th minute of the teams' Mission League finale off a Hannah Armendariz free kick. The goal was waved off and that proved to be the difference in a scoreless draw at Chaminade Wednesday. “It's part of the game, sometimes you're going to win and sometimes you won't,” Flintridge Sacred Heart Coach Cesar Hidalgo said.

WEST HILLS - Two defensive breakdowns in the first and last few minutes cost the St. Francis High boys' soccer team two points in a Mission League game at Chaminade Thursday. The Golden Knights tied the Eagles, 2-2, but it felt and looked a lot more like a Chaminade win after the Eagles celebrated the result after they scored a back-breaking goal in the final two minutes of the game. St. Francis Coach Glen Appels said the tie felt like a loss. "I'm proud we fought back to go up, 2-1, but up with two minutes to go we've got to defend better," Appels said.

WEST HILLS - All the momentum belonged to the St. Francis High basketball team as it overcame a five-point fourth-quarter deficit to force overtime against Chaminade Thursday night. Unfortunately for the Golden Knights, none of their five shots fell in the extra session, as Chaminade held on for a 55-48 Mission League victory at home. It was a back-and-fourth affair as the lead changed hands nine times in the game, which also featured two ties, and no team held a lead greater than seven points.

WEST HILLS — Though the game was a scoreless deadlock at the half, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy’s coaching staff felt its soccer team was getting beaten to the ball. Chaminade was the quicker team, seemingly playing at a higher tempo and with more energy. “They beat us to every ball, they were more aggressive,” said Sacred Heart co-Coach Kathy Desmond, whose halftime speech didn’t revolve around anything technical, but rather on everything as it related to the intangibles.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan At this time last year, the St. Francis High basketball players were trying to forget about a disappointing season. A year later, the Golden Knights find themselves part of a remarkable run. At this time in 2003, some of the Golden Knight players were already practicing with their spring sports teams, while the rest of teammates enjoyed time away from the gym. Twelve months later, St. Francis is still playing after the regular season -- this time in the CIF Southern Section Division IIIA playoffs.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan That's two huge Mission League road wins and one big confidence booster for the St. Francis High basketball team. Coach John Jordan's squad went into Sherman Oaks Notre Dame on Thursday night and hit crucial shots down the stretch, played tenacious defense in the second half and had a balanced attack to move one step closer to a CIF Southern Section Division IIIA playoff berth. St. Francis defeated Notre Dame, 71-64, to notch its 10th victory of the season, needing one more win to be able to petition for an at-large postseason bid for the second time in three years.
