ROUNDUP:Indian freshman advances


November 08, 2006


CIF Southern Section Northern Individual Regionals: Burroughs High freshman Emily Tubert has been able to extend her season following a fine showing in Monday's event at Las Posas Country Club in Camarillo.

Tubert was one of 45 golfers out of a field of 71 to advance to Thursday's CIF Southern Section Individual Finals, which will be held at Diamond Bar Golf Course.


She is the first female golfer to advance to the second round of the postseason in school history.

Tubert — along the rest of the field — battled windy conditions to place 13th after firing a 12-over-par 81.

"The wind was really blowing, and it didn't help that it was a very difficult course," Burroughs Coach Mike Krose said. "But Emily did a fine job and she played very well."

The freshman recorded two birdies on the day and parred the final four holes.

Tubert, who placed second in the Pacific League, was among a group of four league golfers who are advancing to the finals. One of those athletes is Crescenta Valley's Christine Cho, who trains at De Bell Municipal Golf Course.


Burbank 7, Placentia Valencia 5: The Bulldogs pulled off an historic victory Tuesday on the road in a first round CIF Southern Section Division VI match.

"As far as I know, this is the first time a Burbank polo team has won a playoff game. We came in with an 0-15 playoff record over the years," Burbank Coach Dro Hovanessian said.

Burbank, the No. 3 team from the Pacific League defeated a Valencia squad that won the Empire League championship.

"This was a total team effort. Everyone played a part for us [Tuesday]," Hovanessian said.

Goalkeeper Hunter Pitkin had 10 saves for the Bulldogs (18-6).

Burroughs 12, Warren 5: The host Indians came through with a big win Tuesday in a Division VI wild-card match.

"We had the game pretty much in hand, so I was able to get all of my players some playing time," Burroughs Coach Kristina Garcia said.

Warren was the No. 3 team from the San Gabriel Valley League.

The Indians (11-11) will play a first-round match at 3:15 p.m. Thursday against host La Salle. The Lancers are champions from the Prep League.

Jarrod Przebieda paced Burroughs with six goals. Goalkeeper James Hernandez had 13 saves.


Viewpoint 14, Burroughs 4: Indian No. 1 singles player Melanie Irinco won two sets Tuesday in a Division II wild-card match at Viewpoint.

Burroughs (7-8) finished fourth in the Pacific League and Viewpoint was third in the Olympic League.


Burroughs d. San Marino, 17-25, 25-15, 25-19, 25-23: Karissa Lagmay tallied 19 kills Tuesday to pace the Indians to a win in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division IIA playoffs at San Marino.

Burroughs (11-7) — the No. 3 team from the Pacific League — also received 13 kills from Tatiana Soto.

"These girls poured their heats out in this game," Indians Coach Edwin Real said. "They deserved to win. I am very proud of the team."
