For the past three years, Burroughs High has been the premier boys’ volleyball program in the city.
The Indians have won or shared the last three Pacific League championships. In addition, the team advanced to the CIF Southern Section Division III semifinals in 2012 and the championship contest in 2011.
With a solid group of returners this season, don’t look for the Indians to shoot for anything less than league and CIF crowns.
“The older guys who have been around are definitely into keeping the tradition going,” Burroughs Coach Joel Brinton said. “And what’s nice is that they’re teaching that to the younger guys.”
While Burroughs has been thriving, Burbank is continuing to build its program, as the Bulldogs embark on their third season of play. At Bellarmine-Jefferson, the Guards will field a small squad and Providence looks for success in a revamped league with a new-look squad.
