Sang Lee OLIVE PARK -- A couple years from now the players on theProvidence High softball team might laugh about their 14-2 loss to Oakwood Friday at Olive Park. They'll laugh at how sloppy their fielding was or how they had problems hitting. But for now, the youthful Pioneer team will take the Liberty League mercy-rule loss as a learning experience, and hope to improve before the league season ends. "We're a very young team. The average grade on our team is 10th," first-year Providence Coach Tony King said.

OLIVE PARK — One thing that Providence High first-year Coach Aaron Gibson has stressed with his team this season is improvement. After the Pioneers had their share of problems early on in Liberty League play, the team has been able to turn its fortunes around. In the second half of the league campaign, Providence has defeated teams it lost to during the first round, and the Pioneers have raised their team batting average from the mid-.200s to more than .400. Providence continued its second-half league push Tuesday with an easy 14-0 victory against visiting Oakwood at Olive Park.

PROVIDENCE HIGH — Providence High's boys' volleyball team has had a problem maintaining its intensity throughout the course of an entire match this season. When the Pioneers keep their intensity level high, they can compete against the top teams in the Liberty League. However, when that intensity falters, Providence often struggles against vastly inferior squads. Still in contention for a league championship, the Pioneers needed a spirited effort Tuesday against Oakwood to stay in contention.

BURBANK - With a crop of good hitters, the Providence High softball team has proven it can score runs this season. The first indication of that came last week when the Pioneers pushed across 16 runs in a victory against Holy Family to open the season. In a nonleague game Tuesday against Oakwood, the Providence offense was at it again, this time to the tune of a 22-run effort. However, the Pioneers' defense did struggle at times against the Gorillas, who were able to take an early lead.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - Without a reliable offensive attack thus far this season, Providence High boys' soccer Coach Kordo Doski has seen firsthand that giving up one goal on the other end can be too much for his team to come back from. In their latest match, the Pioneers played with effort and showed tenacity on defense, but eventually gave up that dreaded goal in the 21st minute of the second half. And against a struggling offense, it was all Liberty League opponent Oakwood needed to clinch its 1-0 win at Glendale Community College Saturday.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan Opponents still don't have an answer for Jenna Schachtner. Oakwood couldn't figure out how to get on base against the Flintridge Prep softball pitcher on Tuesday and neither could Providence on Thursday. Two days after throwing a perfect game with 13 strikeouts in an abbreviated five-inning outing against Oakwood, Schachtner was masterful yet again. The senior was untouchable against the Pioneers, striking out 17 in a 2-0 nonleague victory at Olive Park.

Charles Rich Once the members of the Glendale and Burbank high boys' tennis teams emerged from the fenced-in courts, the respective coaches assessed the chief difference between the teams. It took about two seconds for Burbank Coach Paul McNiff and Glendale Coach Bob Davidson to reach the same conclusion: Burbank showed more aggression by attacking the net during the close sets. That proved to be the biggest factor in Burbank posting an 11-7 nonleague road victory against Glendale on Monday.

PROVIDENCE HIGH ? Prepared to face Flintridge Prep, Alex Knopper admitted he was a bit scared. There have been plenty of big matches that Knopper, a standout senior outside hitter for Providence, has shown some apprehension. Most of those moments came during postseason contests. Knopper managed to overcome his jitters Friday, as he recorded a match-high nine kills to lead the Pioneers to a 25-17, 25-17 victory against Flintridge Prep in a quarterfinal match of the 13th annual Providence Tournament.
