BOYS' BASKETBALL Mission Viejo 41, Burbank 39 : The Bulldogs had one of their best efforts of the season in a losing effort Wednesday against the host Diablos in a first-round game of the CIF Southern Section Division II-AA playoffs.

The Burbank High girls' volleyball team was hoping to ride the momentum of an opening-round win in the CIF Southern Section playoffs two days earlier when it took part in a second-round contest Thursday. But the Bulldogs faced a big task in the form of No. 2 seed Whittier Christian, which was hosting the Division II-A match. The Heralds proved too much for Burbank to handle, as the Bulldogs went down in defeat, 25-10, 25-10, 25-19, ending their season. "That team hit harder and they played faster than any team we played against this season," Burbank Coach Sarah Brown said.

VALENCIA — With its scoring inefficiencies, the Burbank High football team has small margin for error. So when it committed bad snaps, fumbles, missed field goals and an interception, the Bulldogs ran through a series of problems Friday against host West Ranch. The Wildcats turned those miscues into touchdowns and the Bulldogs absorbed a 41-7 nonleague loss at Valencia High. Burbank (1-1) committed five errors that led to eventual touchdowns, including three in the opening half, as West Ranch went ahead, 21-0, at halftime.

A season removed from finishing last in the Pacific League, out of the playoffs and incurring CIF sanctions, the Burbank High boys' soccer team showcased just how far it has come - at least in the eyes of first-year Coach Loi Phan. "It was great soccer, it was a great way to end," said Phan shortly after his Bulldogs lost to host John Glenn, 2-1, in double-overtime on Tuesday afternoon in the wild-card round of the CIF Southern Section Division IV tournament. "I told the seniors, if you're gonna lose, this is the way you want to go out. " John Glenn (11-6-3)

BURBANK - Burbank High's softball team and Coach Nicole Drabecki believe they have a legitimate shot to contend for a Pacific League championship this season. However, as opponents have discovered for almost a decade and a half, winning a league title has to go through Crescenta Valley. The Falcons have earned that respect, having won or shared 13 of the last 14 league crowns. The Bulldogs gave credence to their championship quest with a dramatic come-from-behind victory Thursday at McCambridge Park.

GLENDALE — Looking for their first Pacific League victories, the Glendale High and Burbank girls’ basketball teams were embroiled in a tight battle through three quarters Friday. While both squads took turns holding the lead, neither the Nitros nor Bulldogs could generate much breathing room through the first three stanzas. However, that changed in the fourth, when Glendale went cold and Burbank was able to finally take advantage of a host of opportunities. As a result, the Bulldogs held on for a 45-42 victory.

PASADENA — Though both schools still have a game remaining this season, Friday's Pacific League contest between the Burbank High and Muir football teams carried some weight as far as staying in the hunt for a postseason spot. And despite bringing a three-game losing streak and trailing for most of the game to the ranked opponent, the Bulldogs rallied back in the final minute to secure a thrilling 35-34 win on the road. Burbank senior running back Herman Castro shredded the defense for three touchdowns and 139 rushing yards on 10 carries.

THOUSAND OAKS — The Burbank High softball team isn't very representative of a typical No. 3 league squad in the CIF Southern Section playoffs. The Bulldogs were in the hunt for the Pacific League championship until the final regular-season game and although they tied Crescenta Valley for second place, they went into the playoffs as the third seed. La Reina, which captured the Tri-Valley League title after defeating powerhouse Oaks Christian, found out once again how formidable Burbank can be in a Division III game Thursday.

Although she is a senior at Burbank High, Melanie Fielder will remain a Bulldog for a few more years. A standout club girls’ soccer player who is about to begin her fourth season on the varsity squad, Fielder has already made her college choice. She has made a commitment to Drake University, a Division I school in Des Moines, Iowa. Coincidently, Drake’s mascot is also the Bulldogs. “Drake even has the same blue and white colors as Burbank,” Fielder said.

ARCADIA - Despite sending a small contingent, the Burbank-area produced a record-setting effort at Saturday's second day of the 47th annual Arcadia Invitational Track and Field Meet at Arcadia High. Burbank High senior Andy Hurtado led the way. The reigning Pacific League discus champion etched his name into Burbank High history when he set a new school and personal record in the discus with a fifth-place toss of 166 feet, 9 inches. “It was unbelievable, it was the throw I had thought I could always throw,” Hurtado said.

BURBANK - Thus far in the Pacific League season, the Burbank High softball team, seen as the favorite by most to repeat as league champion, has run roughshod over some overmatched competition. PHOTOS: Burbank vs. Crescenta Valley girls' league softball On Thursday afternoon, the Bulldogs faced their most arduous opposition yet, but behind a stellar effort in the circle from junior pitcher Caitlyn Brooks and some early offense, Burbank still looked impressive in a 3-0 win over Crescenta Valley at McCambridge Park.

LA CAÑADA - The La Cañada and Burbank High softball teams faced off in a nonleague double-header among area powers before returning to play in the Rio Hondo and Pacific leagues respectively, in which each squad has started with two wins. “We wanted to play La Cañada. [Spartans Coach KC Mathews] always has a real good, well-coached team and they play good, solid defense,” Burbank Coach Mike Delaney said. “We wanted to have something before going into the heart of our league schedule.” The visiting Bulldogs, ranked No. 5 in Division III of the CIF-Southern Section, came away with a sweep against the Spartans on Saturday with Bulldogs hurler Caitlyn Brooks going the distance in both wins.

In recent years, the Burroughs High boys' golf team has enjoyed a great deal of success in the annual Burbank Cup rivalry contest against cross-town foe Burbank.

It was time for revenge for the Indians in the latest event contested Thursday at De Bell Golf Club. Burroughs was able to take back the city championship, downing Burbank, 12-6.

ARCADIA - Burbank High track and field Coach Darin Wolf surmised that his boys' team would have to have a lot go its way if it hoped to upset perennial Pacific League champion Arcadia in a league dual meet Wednesday with Pasadena. Instead, the Bulldogs suffered their share of woes. In the first event of the meet, the 4x100-meter relay, Josh Cantong pulled up injured in the race and the Bulldogs didn't finish. Cantong, who was also slated to compete in the 200, 400 and the 4x400 relay, was done for the day. "That was a loss of potentially 20 points right there," Wolf said.

When Sarah Brown took over the Burbank High girls' volleyball team in 2007, she stepped into a program that wasn't accustomed to winning. The Bulldogs has a 6-11 record in 2006 and wallowed in fifth place in the Pacific League, missing the CIF Southern Section playoffs. In seven years, Brown changed the culture of the program. Now, instead of battling for a place among the lower teams in the league, Burbank fully expects to be among the league leaders. But, the Brown era ended this week when she officially stepped down as coach.

BURBANK - Since it resurrected its boys' varsity volleyball program two seasons ago, Burbank High has had a tough time against cross-town rival Burroughs. In two years, the Indians dominated the city competition, earning sweeps in all four matches en route to back-to-back Pacific League championships.

BURBANK - For the first time in more than two decades, the Burbank High baseball team entered the league campaign as a defending champion. Last season, the Bulldogs shared the Pacific League crown with Crescenta Valley for the program's first title since 1991. However, after the graduation of 14 seniors, this year's team doesn't much look like the squad from a season ago. Burbank played like an inexperienced squad in its league opener at home Tuesday against Arcadia, running itself out of scoring opportunities with baserunning mistakes and failing to score a run despite putting runners on base in every inning.
