Looking Ahead in Sports

What are the big games and events during the week ahead in Glendale-area sports …

It looks to be a monumental week in girls’ volleyball, cross-country and football.

On Tuesday, Crescenta Valley’s girls’ volleyball team hosts Burroughs in a match with postseason and Pacific League positioning at stake. Holy Family’s volleyball team hosts Horizon League-power Alverno in a big showdown at 5 p.m. at Pacific Park. And finally, at 6:30 p.m., Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy travels to face arch-nemesis Harvard-Westlake. Also on Tuesday in cross-country action at Crescenta Valley Park, Flintridge Sacred Heart and St. Francis take part in a Mission League tri-meet, in which Harvard-Westlake is involved. Harvard and St. Francis are likely to duel it out for second in league, while reigning champion Sacred Heart finds its most formidable opposition in Harvard.

Two football games are on the slate Thursday, with Glendale at Pasadena and Crescenta Valley hosting Muir, a game the Falcons must win to keep any outside league title hopes alive.

Friday and Saturday will see the best of the best in cross-country travel to Mt. SAC.

Also on Friday, Hoover hosts Burbank on the gridiron and St. Francis travels to face perennial power Loyola.

Saturday’s gridiron action sees Flintridge Prep host archrival Pasadena Poly, while Glendale Community College welcomes juggernaut Bakersfield.
