BURROUGHS HIGH — It is a tough way to lose a baseball game. It’s even tougher to take when the loss is in extra innings of a CIF Southern Section playoff game. Burbank High battled back Tuesday in its Division II wild-card game against visiting Bellflower. However, the Bulldogs couldn’t push across the winning run when they had a chance and ended up falling to the Buccaneers, 5-2, in an eight-inning game at Burroughs High. “We had the chance to close the door on them and we didn’t do it,” Burbank Coach Bob Hart said.

Jim Riggio LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE -- Finding a player to finish off the great passes that playmaker Daniel Cuello makes has been difficult for the Burbank High boys' soccer team. Monday in the opening match of the La Canada Soccer Tournament, the Bulldogs' Hector Velasquez stepped forward and gave an indication he may assume the role of supporting Cuello. Cuello and Velasquez hooked up three times, as the Bulldogs defeated Bellflower High, 3-0. "I have to get open because he's a great passer," said Velasquez -- who has four goals this season -- about Cuello.

BELLFLOWER — It's been quite a few years since the Burroughs High football team was still playing at this point in the season. Last week, the Indians broke 23 years of postseason frustration by winning the program's first CIF Southern Section playoff game since 1987. Burroughs was hoping to keep to keep that winning momentum going Friday in a Southeast Division quarterfinal playoff game against a tough Mayfair team. Despite missing some key players because of injury, the Indians battled the Monsoons in a challenging matchup.

Darleene Barrientos Only retirement could keep Burbank Police Det. Carl Costanzo from carrying the torch for the Special Olympics next year. Costanzo has participated since his department got involved with the Special Olympics 15 years ago. After running through the city Wednesday to hand the torch to Glendale Police officers at Alameda Avenue and Glenoaks Boulevard, he paused for a few moments before he began to run back to the Burbank Police station and thought about this weekend's competition.

I have distinct memories of the last time the Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls’ basketball team was in a CIF Southern Section championship game. Well, to be honest, I have distinct memories about how I missed the last time the Guards played for a title. It was March 2003, and little did I know that Bell-Jeff would slice through the Division IVA postseason and earn a berth in the contest at the Long Beach Pyramid. Unfortunately, I had booked a vacation to Hawaii with my family six months earlier, and I missed the Guards’ special moment.

Jeff Tully Last year, just a few days before the CIF Southern Section final, the Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls' cross-country team suffered a serious blow. One of the Guards' top runners -- Sara Burrola -- was severely injured when the bicycle she was riding was hit by a car. Without Burrola, Bell-Jeff just missed qualifying for the state meet. This season, the Guards head into Saturday's final at Mount San Antonio College in Walnut with a healthy team that Coach Jim Couch said could qualify for state competition.

BURROUGHS HIGH — The Burroughs High football team got a playoff lesson from Coach Keith Knoop last week. Prior to Friday's game, the Indians failed to win a CIF Southern Section postseason contest under the coach's tenure. "For me, I was 0-7 in the playoffs," said Knoop, who has been with the program for 18 years. "I talked with the guys about some of the tough playoff matchups we've had in the past, and we felt that last week we finally got a draw that was representative of what we had done during the year.

Lucas Yanez has vivid memories of his sophomore season two years ago when he took over as the starting quarterback of the Burroughs High football team. "I was this 14-year-old going against guys who were 18-years-old, and that was a little scary" Yanez said. "I was kind of the baby that year. " Burroughs Coach Keith Knoop said Yanez has gone through a transformation in terms of his confidence and his leadership abilities since that sophomore campaign. "As a sophomore, he went all the way to the Glendale game and he hadn't thrown a pick," Knoop said.
