BURBANK — It was a successful spring season for many teams and individuals from Burbank, Burroughs, Bellarmine-Jefferson and Providence highs.
Ten of the 14 local squads qualified for the CIF Southern Section playoffs, the teams won seven playoff contests and the area boasted four individual league champions in two sports.
In addition, one team captured a league championship and four others finished second in their respective leagues.
Leading the way in spring was the Burroughs boys’ tennis team, which also provided the biggest surprise of the year.
Led by singles players Trevor Campbell and Robert Henry and the doubles team of Andre Yanez and Jay Chung, the Indians accomplished three impressive feats. Not only did the team defeat cross-town rival Burbank for the first time in 22 years, it also won its first Pacific League title in 23 years and advanced to the Division II quarterfinals.
