Jeff Tully The Burbank High cross-country teams have been semi-regulars at the annual Bellarmine Cross-Country Invitational at Griffith Park. However, for today's 29th installment of the meet, the only Bulldog teams that will be competing are the junior varsity and sophomore-freshmen. That's because the Burbank boys' and girls' squads will be in the Bay Area taking part in the prestigious Stanford Invitational. There will be, however, plenty of varsity local teams represented in the Bell-Jeff meet, as the host Guards will join Providence in the event.

BELLARMINE-JEFFERSON HIGH - The Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls' volleyball team had little trouble surging through its first two games Thursday in a Santa Cruz League match against visiting St. Mary's Academy. But in the third game, the Guards seemed to let up, and the Belles were able to pull out a tight victory in the stanza. The push-back by St. Mary's seemed to ignite the Guards, who roared back to capture the fourth game and walk off the court with a 25-8, 25-11, 28-30, 25-9 victory at home.

GRIFFITH PARK -- Last summer, Burroughs High junior Katie Vahoviak decided to give up basketball and concentrate strictly on being a distance runner. The decision has paid dividends this season for Vahoviak, who put on a fine performance Saturday in the 30th annual Bellarmine Cross-Country Invitational at Griffith Park. Vahoviak ran away from the rest of the field in the combined Division II-III girls' varsity race, clocking 17 minutes 59 seconds on the 2.9-mile course adjacent to the Greek Theatre.

Molly Shore When it comes to modernization projects, apparently not all schools are created equal. Dozens of John Burroughs High School supporters, protesting what they called "inequities" in construction and remodeling, called on the school board this week to make upgrades in line with those made at Burbank High School. Last month, Burroughs Booster Club President Gary Stevens accused the Burbank Unified School District of giving preferential treatment to building and modernization projects at Burbank High.

Good things seem to happen when Sofia Palacios steps into the batter's box. The senior first baseman enjoyed one of her best performances of the season at the plate Thursday for the Bellarmine-Jefferson softball team. Palacios finished with four hits and drove in five runs to power visiting Bell-Jeff to a lopsided 9-0 victory against rival St. Anthony in a Santa Cruz League matchup at Pan American Park in Long Beach. “With Sofia, she's our biggest hitter,” said Bell-Jeff Coach Florencio Galindo, whose team improved to 8-3-2 and 2-0 in league and is ranked No. 1 in the latest CIF Southern Section Division VI poll.

As members of the St. Robert Bellarmine (SRB) School Band raised their instruments under the direction of Music Coordinator Paul Angers, the school's principal, Dr. June Rosena, proudly pointed out from the courtyard near the stage that the band had only been playing together for four months and now played every morning during the salute to the flag. Overhearing that comment, Robert Alviani, who attended the school in the 1960s, said standing in that courtyard filled him with a wave of nostalgic memories of the many times he had stood in that same spot and made the pledge as a child.

Before the game, Guards' coach David Machuca explained that he wanted his team to play bigger schools. After the game, he understood how much work needs to be done.
