NORTHWEST GLENDALE ? One might guess that after two close losses to teams it?s battling for a final playoff spot, St. Francis High?s boys? tennis team?s optimism might be headed downward. But that?s far from the case, according to Golden Knights Coach Ron Zambrano. After falling to visiting Sherman Oaks Notre Dame by the smallest of margins, 9-9 (66-65), in Tuesday?s Mission League match at Fremont Tennis Center, Zambrano didn?t take the loss as an indictment of his team?s postseason chances, but rather a sign of improvement.

From Staff Reports Odds and ends from the local high school girls' tennis scene: Putting the streak in perspective: Just how impressive is Crescenta Valley's 46-match regular-season winning streak? To put the streak -- which started after a Sept. 29, 1999 Pacific League loss to Arcadia -- in perspective, the Falcons have nearly won more matches since their 9-9 (76-73) loss than league rivals Glendale and Hoover combined. Since Sept. 29, 1999, the Tornadoes -- who had two wins when the Falcons lost to the Apaches -- have won 25 matches.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — At this point in the season last year, the St. Francis High tennis team was in a similar spot. The Golden Knights were playing solid tennis and appeared to be bound for the postseason. But a late-season tailspin caused the squad to miss the playoffs and this year’s team is on a mission to make sure it doesn’t happen again. On Thursday, St. Francis took a big step forward in its goal to finish among the top three teams in the Mission League with an 11-7 league win over Crespi at the Fremont Tennis Center.

GLENDALE ? Winning the Mission League tennis singles title a year ago was no easy feat for Vinni Lodolo. On Wednesday, Lodolo was reminded of just how difficult a task it is to climb to the top of the rugged league, as the St. Francis High senior was turned back in the first round of the final by Harvard-Westlake?s Chris Kenney, 7-6 (7-6), 1-6, 10-6, at Weddington Tennis Center in Studio City. ?It should have been [a] 6-2 [win],? Lodolo said of the grueling first-set win, ?

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — Just one match into their season, the strengths and weaknesses have been uncovered. For the members of the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy tennis team, there is no better time for that to have been discovered. Flintridge Sacred Heart opened its season Friday afternoon with a 13-5 nonleague loss to La Cañada at the La Cañada Country Club. Leave it to Sacred Heart Coach Ron Zambrano to make note of what needs to be worked on by the Tologs by the time they begin Mission League play in early October.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE ? Before it even stepped onto the court, the Glendale High boys' tennis team led St. Francis by three sets in Tuesday's nonleague match. That's because the Golden Knights had to forfeit three sets, as they were forced to compete with just seven of their 15 players. Glendale won eight of nine sets in singles and took five of the six sets it actually played in doubles, en route to walking away with a 16-2 victory against the visiting Golden Knights. "It's just disappointing that they didn't have their full team," Nitro Coach Bob Davidson said.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — Later in the season, when the St. Francis High doubles teams get more comfortable, not having Vinni Lodolo for a day might be a problem the Golden Knights tennis team can overcome. But on Friday, the absence of the team’s top singles player and a reigning All-Area pick was a setback that played a big role in an 11-7 nonleague loss to La Cañada at Fremont Tennis Center. “That hurt us a lot,” said St. Francis Coach Ron Zambrano of not having Lodolo, who was held out to rest sore legs incurred during a week that has included three matches.

Charles Rich RESEDA -- Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls' tennis Coach Ron Zambrano needed to do some quick thinking. The bus driver assigned to transport his team to its Mission League match against Sherman Oaks Notre Dame apparently couldn't find the hilltop campus Thursday. The squad caught a ride with the school's girls' volleyball team, but might have been better served if it had stayed on top of the hill after the Tologs dropped a 12-6 decision to the Knights at Braemar Country Club.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - David Komjathy showed his nimbleness chasing after lob shots. From one side of the court to the other, Komjathy successfully returned several shots while completing a drill at a tennis camp at Fremont Tennis Center, put on by the LA84 Foundation, in conjunction with the Southern California Tennis Assn. and the National Junior Tennis League. "I've gotten a lot better because camps like this help you with your game," said Komjathy said before moving on to another drill.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — The bad news for the St. Francis High tennis team Thursday was that it couldn't win a set against its opponent's top singles player. The good news was far more abundant, however, as the Golden Knights dominated everybody else and thus nullified a strong showing from Crespi's Giancarlo Battaglia. "We played them before, so I knew what to expect, especially from their No. 1," said St. Francis' top singles player John Kazanjian, who dropped a set to Battaglia, but then contributed to a 15-3 win over the Celts on a hot day at the Fremont Tennis Center.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — Its meeting with La Cañada High was certainly quick, but not exactly painless for the St. Francis boys’ tennis team. The Spartans completely dominated the latest installment of the annual nonleague rivalry between the two neighboring schools to the tune of a 17-1 victory on Tuesday afternoon at La Cañada. “This is one of the deepest teams we’ve ever had,” said 18-year veteran Spartans Coach Will Moravec, who lost three seniors from last year, but gained several talented underclassmen.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — Experience prevailed over stress for Hoover High boys’ tennis player Ejmin Mehranian. Entering Tuesday’s afternoon season opener against St. Francis, the junior No. 1 singles player said he felt stressed for reasons that were unknown. After completing his first set, Mehranian found himself relaxed. Mehranian and Oleg Simonyan each swept their three singles sets to help Hoover record a 14-4 nonleague victory against St. Francis at Fremont Tennis Center.

GLENDALE — Advancing to the postseason for the first time this decade proved to be a battle for the members of the St. Francis High tennis team. Many of their regular-season matches went down to the wire with the Golden Knights finding a way to pull out victories. The postseason proved to be a different story. St. Francis saw its season conclude Thursday afternoon with a 16-2 loss to host Mater Dei in a CIF Southern Section Division I first-round match. Mater Dei (19-4)
