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.

Sang Lee OLIVE PARK -- Normally, a 19-run lead for any High school softball team would be enough to allow a coach relax a little. But Buckley High Coach Rob Wright knew that no lead is too safe against Providence High. He learned that lesson the hard way the last time the teams met, when the Pioneers scored 11 unanswered runs in the last inning to win the game. So when Buckley secured the Liberty League win against Providence on Tuesday, the Pirate players paraded around Olive Park celebrating its dominating 20-1 mercy-rule victory.

NORTH HOLLYWOOD - The Providence High boys' basketball team suffered a big blow when it lost the services of Marcus LoVett Jr. for the season. LoVett, one of the top sophomores in the country and the reigning All-Area Player of the Year, left the team last week and didn't play for the Pioneers in the inaugural Liberty League Tournament, which began Tuesday. Providence Athletic Director Andrew Bencze confirmed that LoVett is finished for the season and not because of an injury, but said he's not at liberty to talk about the reason for the sophomore's departure.
