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.

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.

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. However, last season, the Bulldogs claimed the title, taking home the cup for the first time since 2008. 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. The contest was conducted in an 18-player match-play format.

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. PHOTOS: Burroughs boys' volleyball bests rival Burbank For this season's first meeting between the squads, at least on paper, it looked as if Burroughs might have its hands full with the upstart Bulldogs.

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 - 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.

After moving from the Las Vegas area last summer, Yazzy Sa'Dullah had little difficulty adjusting to the culture Burbank had to offer. What she found very appealing was playing for the Burbank High girls' basketball team. It didn't take long for Sa'Dullah to make an impression after trying out for the team during the first week of school in August. After meeting Burbank Coach Bruce Breeden, she made a favorable impression on the Bulldogs following the first practice session. “We had a five-on-five session and you could see she was quite a player within about five minutes,” Breeden said.
