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.
