GLENDALE - Thanks to a hounding press defense, the Burbank High boys' basketball team not only picked up a valuable and impressive victory over host Glendale High on Tuesday evening, but the Bulldogs might have also salvaged their postseason chances while taking some momentum into Friday's showdown with crosstown archrival Burroughs. Burbank forced 20 turnovers and took control of the Pacific League contest in the second quarter en route to 57-45 victory at Nitros gym. PHOTOS: Glendale vs. Burbank boys' basketball With the victory, the Bulldogs improved to 9-9 overall and 3-3 in league and will host Burroughs (13-5, 5-1)

GLENDALE - Burbank High softball Coach Mike Delaney and Glendale Coach Greg Martin walked into distinctly different situations when they took over their respective programs this season. For Delaney, a longtime coach at Village Christian, he took over a squad fresh off winning a Pacific League championship and chalk full of experienced players, including a standout junior pitcher in All-CIF Southern Section and All-Area Player of the Year Caitlyn Brooks. Conversely, Martin inherited a team that didn't make the playoffs in 2013 after placing fifth and half the players on the roster were underclassmen.

BURBANK - Before meeting their respective rivals for the first time this season, the Glendale and Burbank high girls' basketball teams met in a key Pacific League match-up on Tuesday. Going into the contest, the Nitros trailed the Bulldogs by one game for the coveted fourth-place spot in the standings, but after the game at Burbank High was settled, the Bulldogs created more separation while inching toward the top with a 54-38 victory. “We came out and did what we needed to do,” said Bulldogs Coach Bruce Breeden, whose team was paced by Yazzy Sa'Dullah's 22 points.

GLENDALE — For more than a decade of coaching softball at Glendale Community College, Dave “Hawk” Wilder has seen his share of players come and go from the program. He’s bid farewell to quite a few just this offseason alone. As Glendale is a two-year college, its hard to sustain continuity of the roster under the best of circumstances. But the 2009 squad represents as clean a slate as the veteran instructor has worked with in recent memory. “This is a year of major turnover,” said Wilder, whose roster includes just two major contributors from last year’s squad that went 22-17 and 15-10 in the Western State Conference.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan Chris Rivera walked back to the bench, steaming with frustration, unable to do anything to help the Hoover High boys' basketball team's spiraling defense, described as "terrible" by co-captain and leader Armen Baghdasarian. The Tornadoes blew an 11-point third-quarter lead, had Rivera -- a starting shooting guard -- foul out midway through the fourth quarter and someone other than Joey Paysinger handled some of Burroughs' scoring while Rivera was on the bench Monday in a Glendale High Summer League game.

GLENDALE ? The Glendale High?s boys? water polo team got the Pacific League season off to a fast start Tuesday, and Burroughs simply could not keep up. The end result was a resounding 27-12 win for the Nitros at Glendale High in both teams? league openers and, perhaps, a statement about both programs. Glendale could very well be poised to make a run for a league title and contend with the league hierarchy of Crescenta Valley and Arcadia, while Burroughs might be in for a lengthy rebuilding campaign.

GLENDALE — A common theme occurred during a Pacific League-opening match between Glendale High and Burroughs on Wednesday afternoon. Glendale and Burroughs played even in the early stages of each game before Burroughs used a big run in the middle to pull away with a 25-13, 25-16, 25-16 road victory. It’s something Burroughs Coach Joel Brinton and his counterpart, Taase Mose, certainly noticed. “Every game went the same exact way,” said Brinton, whose team improved to 8-5. “For those moments when we did pull away, our passing got better, and that led to our setting and hitting getting better.

A Burroughs High senior recently earned a top score on the ACT exam, accomplishing something that fewer than one-tenth of 1% of students who take the test typically achieve, according to ACT spokesperson Katie Wacker. Nathaniel Low did not expect to earn a composite score of 36 when he took the exam earlier this year. “When I found out, I was surprised, considering I did not spend much time studying,” he said this week. The high school senior plans to study mechanical engineering in college and is applying to the California Institute of Technology, Stanford University, UCLA and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, among others.

GLENDALE - Doug Nicol has seen his share of hard-hit balls around the diamond. On Tuesday, the Burroughs High softball coach saw another one that he likely won't soon forget that helped pave the way for a big first inning for the Indians. Danielle Ryan hit a two-run inside-the-park home run high off the 40-foot chain-linked fence at Glendale High to spark visiting Burroughs to a convincing 16-3 victory against Glendale in a Pacific League game called after five innings because of the 10-run mercy rule.

BURBANK - Perhaps the smallest and yet most complex difference that separated the Burroughs High and Glendale softball teams in Tuesday afternoon's Pacific League opener was defense. Even simpler put, the young Nitros committed five errors, while the more veteran Indians minimized their one mistake in an 11-1 win called after five innings at Jack Smock Field at Olive Park in Burbank.

GLENDALE - For the second time this season, the Glendale High and Burroughs boys' soccer teams played in a close match. While the Nitros and Indians traded golden scoring opportunities throughout their Pacific League match Friday at Glendale, both teams demonstrated why they are well-balanced and inched closer to qualifying for the postseason. Glendale received a second-half goal from Benito Fausto to earn a 1-1 tie against Burroughs at windy Moyse Field. "These were two good teams going at it today," said Fausto, a senior who scored off a corner kick by Avo Haroutunyan in the 55th minute.
