BURBANK — It was a successful season for the four local high school softball teams.
While all four qualified for the CIF Southern Section playoffs, Burroughs High was one of two teams to capture a league championship. The other was Bellarmine-Jefferson.
The Indians erased years of futility to win the Pacific League title. It was the program's first championship in 28 years.
One of the reasons for the team's success was the play of sophomore pitcher Heather Haynes. Because of her accomplishments this season, Haynes was honored by being named to the All-CIF Division III second team.
Burbank resident Emily Seidel, a senior pitcher who plays for Village Christian School, made the Division V first team.
Haynes, who was an All-Pacific League first-team selection, put up impressive numbers for the Indians. She was 11-5 with six shutouts in 16 games, striking out 106 and walking 29 in 109 innings. In addition, she allowed just 12 earned runs, had a 0.77 earned-run average and opposing teams hit just .176 against her.
