BURBANK — What a way to end the 2009-10 school year.
The spring sports season was one of the most productive for the local schools — Burroughs, Burbank, Bellarmine-Jefferson and Providence highs — in decades. Deep CIF Southern Section playoff runs, league championships and individual titles were only some of the accomplishments that highlighted the spring campaign.
The accomplishments read like a laundry list of success:
•Two squads were able to advance to CIF Southern Section championship contests for the first time.
•Three teams captured league crowns, two going undefeated in the process.
•Another team advanced to the playoff semifinals for the first time in program history.
•Yet another squad moved on to the playoff quarterfinals for the first time in four years.
•An area golfer advanced through three CIF postseason tournaments and came a step away from qualifying for state competition.
•All four softball teams qualified for the postseason.
