This is the fourth in a four-part series looking back on the sports accomplishments of the four local high schools during the 2012-13 year. This installment is Burbank High:
Coming into the 2012-13 campaign, the Burbank High girls' volleyball, softball and baseball teams had endured decades of futility when it came to winning league championships.
The droughts were so lengthy, in fact, that the volleyball program hadn't claimed a title in 37 years, the softball team had gone 26 years without a crown and the baseball team was on its 22nd year without a title. All of those championships came in the old Foothill League.
However, all three winless streaks were broken, as the Bulldogs squads enjoyed championships in the Pacific League.
The three titles would be all that Burbank would enjoy during the campaign.
The title push began in the fall when the volleyball squad tied for the league crown behind senior setter Tyler Brooks.
