 Simply put, the Glendale High boys' basketball team didn't hit the panic button when seemingly spiraling out of control Monday night. The Nitros found themselves in a deep hole early against St. Francis in a pool-play game of the La Cañada Holiday Classic at La Cañada High. Then, Glendale regrouped, thanks to a big effort from its budding center. David Yetenikyan finished with 13 points, 12 rebounds, seven assists and a pair of blocks to help rally Glendale to a 61-53 victory.

La Cañada football punished Glendale on Friday, posting a 35-0 shutout in the team’s first game of the season—at Glendale—for Coach Dan Yoder’s first win as the varsity head coach. “To have it be that big of a win was some relief on the ticker,” Yoder said. Most impressively, the Spartans offense was keyed by a surprisingly powerful pass offense and some solid running performances from a running back by committee. “That wasn’t the game plan,” Yoder said, stating the initial plan was for a run-first offense.

Its best shooters couldn't find a pulse, leading to a recipe for disaster early and often. That left veteran Glendale High boys' basketball Coach Steve Snodgress dumbfounded for most of Tuesday night, as the Nitros suffered a 60-49 loss to La Cañada in a pool-play game of the 16th annual La Cañada Holiday Classic. Glendale (3-3) never led, mostly because top shooters Hamlet Hovhanesian and Robert Mansuryan couldn't produce much offense against a talented La Cañada program.

La Cañada starting pitcher Cole Kendall allowed just three hits and allowed no runs in a complete-game effort as the Spartans lit up Glendale High (4-9) for seven runs in the fourth inning to defeat the Nitros, 14-0, in a nonleague matchup on Monday afternoon. The Spartan bats were as hot as the sweltering heat at Glendale High?s baseball diamond, as La Cañada (13-1) connected for 13 heats and scored runs in four of the five innings played. Due to a 10-run mercy rule, the game was called after Kendall (6-0)

Burbank embarrassed La Cañada High last week with a 54-14 whipping in the nonleague season opener. This week, it was the Spartans' turn to return the favor. La Cañada's victim just happened to be host Glendale which had also lost its nonleague opener to Alhambra. The Spartans evened their record to 1-1 with a 52-0 blanking of the hapless Nitros at Moyse Field on Sept. 16. It was a good day all around for La Cañada football, as the junior varsity earlier in the day defeated the JV Falcons, 40-0.

PASADENA — A strong first half put the Glendale High boys' basketball team in a position where all it needed to do to secure victory was keep Flintridge Prep from cutting too deeply into its double-digit lead during the second half in Maranatha Summer League action. Behind 14 points apiece from Arada Zakarian and Sevan Torosyan and 12 points, 17 rebounds and four assists from David Yetenikyan, the Nitros held off every attempt by the Rebels to get back into the game and ended the contest on another scoring tear to notch an 81-65 win. "We didn't go dead offensively and, when they extended the defense a little bit, we found some opportunity," Glendale Coach Steve Snodgress said.

LA CAÑADA - By the time the Glendale High and La Cañada boys' soccer teams took to the field for their match Saturday night, the Nitros and Spartans were already assured of competing against each other in Monday's championship contest of the La Cañada Holiday Tournament. By virtue of having tallied four points apiece in their first two tournament matches, Glendale and La Cañada treated Saturday's match more like a dress rehearsal for Monday's winner-take-all contest. La Cañada received first-half goals from Filipp Franke and Sam Adida en route to a 2-1 victory against Glendale.

The La Cañada High football team ran a simple offense against Glendale on Friday. The Spartans had quick handoffs to their fullbacks, had quarterback rollouts and options, and stuck with a basic offense throughout the night. And the Nitros couldn't stop it. The Nitros knew that La Cañada liked to run, but it didn't matter. As Glendale Coach Alan Eberhart put it, the nonleague contest was simply about "tackling," and the Nitros couldn't do enough of it. La Cañada built a 27-point lead in the first half and gave up 17 straight before holding off the Nitros for a 40-17 home win. "La Cañada is bigger and stronger than we are," Eberhart said.

Schedule-wise, the La Cañada High football team's 2013 season is nearly the exact same as the one before. Second-year Spartans Coach James Sims hopes to see big changes from the team, though. They'll play the same 10 opponents from 2012 with the only changes being the home-and-away shifts and shuffling the order of the Rio Hondo League schedule. "I am sure people will see a much better La Cañada football team because we've had a full year working with them now," said Sims, who's made changes to the passing game and in the weight room to prepare for the new year.
