When the CIF Southern Section boys’ volleyball playoffs get going Tuesday, the city of Burbank will be well represented.
Burbank, Burroughs and Providence all earned berths to the postseason when the CIF Southern Section playoff pairings were released Saturday morning.
The Bulldogs and Indians will participate in Division II, while the Pioneers are in Division V.
No area team has enjoyed more postseason success the last two seasons than has Burroughs, which advanced to the Division III finals in 2011 and the semifinals in 2012.
Yet, that history didn’t help at draw time.
Burroughs (20-8) begins its new challenge in Division II on Tuesday at 7 p.m. hosting Moore League third-place finisher Long Beach Millikan (11-9).
“It is what it is. It all makes sense through the logic of this season, who we played and who we beat and we didn’t beat. I know that’s what they looked at,” Indians Coach Joel Brinton said. “There’s some teams that I thought had better draws than us and I know we’re better than. I know the process of it. It is what it is. We are excited about having the first game at home.”
