BURROUGHS HIGH — The Burroughs High baseball team was one out away from winning their opening CIF Southern Section playoff game Tuesday. The Indians battled back to take the lead from visiting Chino Hills, and appeared to have their third straight wild-card win in the bag. However, the Huskies tied the game with a home run with two out in the seventh inning and won the game in the eighth, 5-2, as Burroughs went down to the Division II...

LA CRESCENTA — When first the Burbank High and Crescenta Valley softball teams locked up in a Pacific League affair, the teams combined for 15 runs with the Bulldogs taking home a dramatic extra-inning, one-run victory. Though the teams combined once more for 15 runs, Tuesday’s showdown was a far different ballgame, as consequently, Crescenta Valley appears to be a much different ballclub after winning its 10th straight game in the form of an emphatic 11-4 home victory against Burbank.

MEMORIAL FIELD — Burbank High's easy nonleague win against Golden Valley was so one-sided that all three Bulldog quarterbacks took turns directing the offense. Senior Robert Linda started, followed by senior Keith Hoefel, who gave way to sophomore Kevin Hunter. And when the evening concluded, the Bulldogs had a resounding 56-7 triumph Thursday against the out-manned Grizzlies at Memorial Field. For the second year in a row, Burbank opened its season against Golden Valley, which has been playing varsity football for only two seasons.

Shannon Trujillo would probably make a good football player. As a catcher for the Burroughs High softball team, Trujillo doesn't mind getting into collisions at home plate. In fact, when she is bracing for a throw to the plate, and she eyes an opposing runner barreling down the third-base line, the senior almost relishes the possibility of a violent impact. "I just love it," Trujillo said of the contact. "That's my favorite part. I really wish there was more contact in softball.

BURBANK — It might still be winter, but it felt like a warm summer day when the Burbank Parochial League kicked off its 2010 baseball season with opening-day ceremonies at Schafer Park. The BPL, represented by 41 teams from St. Finbar, St. Francis, St. Patricks and St. Roberts, is best recognized for its on-field competitiveness. However, it can now add a successful opening-day tradition to its permanent roster. The Jan. 3 event was only the second year in recent memory that the 53-year-old league held opening-day ceremonies.

Burbank's animated rose float cruised gallantly down Colorado Boulevard Monday morning in front of thousands of onlookers, many who had camped out overnight to see the 118th annual Tournament of Roses Parade. The float, "Free Dog Wash," featured a boy washing a soapy dog as several animals played around in the background. "Every one of these [floats] is wonderful," said Burbank City Councilman Jef Vander Borght. "I'm astounded on how beautiful they are and how much work goes into them.

LA CRESCENTA — For seven innings, Crescenta Valley High sophomore pitcher Kali Cancelosi shut down Burroughs. For almost the entire game, Indians hurler Jade Terry did the same, stifling the vaunted Falcons lineup. It was the almost that was the difference, though It came in the form of one inning, one error and two hits, and equated to a 2-0 Pacific League win for host Crescenta Valley against league-newcomer Burroughs on Thursday afternoon. Falcons Stephanie Ziemann's second single of the day squeaked through the infield to score courtesy runner Sabrina Walentynowicz and outfielder Caitlyn Cox in the bottom of the fourth inning.

BURROUGHS HIGH — Making an appearance in the CIF Southern Section for the first time in more than a decade, many might not have expected much from the Burroughs High girls' volleyball team. However, the Indians — the third-place team from the Pacific League — might have raised some eyebrows by defeating San Marino in the opening round and then knocking off Cajon two nights later. Burroughs was trying to continue its run Saturday when it took on No. 1 Elsinore.

"When my sister found out that I won it she was so excited for me," Caitlyn Brooks said.
