BURBANK — After a successful run last year that saw Burroughs High reach the girls' volleyball CIF Southern Section Division II-A quarterfinals, it was time for the Indians to begin a new campaign Tuesday, starting with a nonleague match at home against Division I-A opponent Hart.
Burroughs fought out of an early hole to take the first game, but tailed off after that, dropping the next three and losing, 21-25, 25-18, 25-21, 26-24, to the visiting Indians.
"I was pleased with the outcome of the first game," said Burroughs Coach Edwin Real, whose team is ranked No. 10 in Division II-A. "We were clicking, things were happening, our ball control was good and then some time in the second game, they served a little better. Then, we had a hard time passing the ball, getting the ball to the setter and our ball control kind of went out the window kind of. If that happens, you know, you lose."
