GLENDALE - The Liberty League match Tuesday between Providence High and Glendale Adventist Academy meant inherently more to the Pioneers than the Cougars.   With just one league victory going in, Providence Coach Josh Eggleston said it was a match his team had to win if it hoped to keep its postseason aspirations alive. On the other hand, with no league wins, the Cougars were hoping to pull off an upset. Although Glendale Adventist played well in the first two games of the afternoon, the Pioneers' experience was too much for the hosts to overcome, as Providence went on to notch a 25-19, 25-23, 25-16 win. "I had talked to the team about how important getting a win in this one was," said Eggleston, whose team is 3-7, 2-2 in league.

VALENCIA — In holding College of the Canyons’ offense scoreless for the final 52-plus minutes of Saturday night’s Northern Conference National Division contest at Canyons, the Glendale Community College football team showed it really is just as good, if not better, than its recent string of stellar performances would indicate. But with another frustratingly mediocre performance, the Vaqueros’ offense did nothing to shake the reputation for ineffectuality that it has simultaneously developed.

GLENDALE — The Providence High boys' volleyball team definitely has motivation heading into the last few weeks of the regular season. Coming into Thursday's match with host Glendale Adventist Academy, the Pioneers were one match out of first place in the Liberty League and were attempting to stay in position to win a share of the league crown. For the Cougars, they have a less lofty goal. With a young team and many players who've never played competitive volleyball, Glendale Adventist just hopes to improve with each match and hopefully get some wins along the way. A win against a tough Providence team was just not in the cards for the Cougars, as they were only able to stay with the Pioneers early in the first two games and nearly pulled off a victory in the third.

BELLARMINE-JEFFERSON HIGH — Sixteen second-chance points proved to be the difference. It meant a world of difference for the Glendale Adventist Academy and Bellarmine-Jefferson boys’ basketball teams, who were the only local teams to compete on Martin Luther King Day. Bell-Jeff needed most of those points to earn a 65-54 nonleague home victory against Glendale Adventist Academy on Monday night. The Guards (13-5) don’t have a lot of height, so guards Martin Rosas and Alexis Bersabe needed to be ready to grab offensive rebounds and make things difficult for the Cougars (6-3)

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - It wasn't an ideal season for the 15 sophomores on the Glendale Community College football team, but Saturday night provided an opportunity for the Vaqueros to end their playing careers as winners. To their coaches, they were winners on Saturday. But on the scoreboard, they weren't, despite a valiant effort in a heart-wrenching game. L.A. Southwest College made sure that it was the team that got to celebrate a win for its sophomores. The Cougars ruined the Vaqueros' sophomore night, defeating Glendale college, 56-50, in overtime in a Pacific Conference American Division game at Sartoris Field.

BURBANK - Yet again, defense proved to be the calling card for the Providence High girls' basketball team. Behind stifling pressure from a press that forced a flurry of turnovers, the Pioneers overwhelmed visiting Glendale Adventist Academy on Wednesday night, 45-25, to improve to 13-6 overall and 4-1 in the Liberty League. “They just had trouble handling the ball against us,” Providence Coach Andrew Bencze said. “And they're not alone. That's one thing we live on: our defense.

PASADENA - Both the Providence High and Glendale Adventist Academy girls' soccer programs have struggled to field and maintain teams this season. “We didn't even know just before the season started if we were even going to have a team this year,” said Pioneers Coach Kordo Doski, who had just four players on his bench Thursday for a game against the Cougars. “We do have a few good players, but a lot of these girls have never even played soccer before. We are having to teach them the fundamentals of the game.” For the Liberty League contest at Villa Parke Community Center in Pasadena, Glendale Adventist had only two reserve players.
