BURBANK - Burroughs High's softball team welcomed CIF Southern Section Division I opponent Canyon Springs for a nonleague doubleheader at Olive Park in the host's final games before spring break. The Indians came away with a split against the Cougars Wednesday, pulling away late in the first game for an 8-2 win before dropping the back half of the twin bill, 9-5. “I'm really happy about the whole day. I think we were winners today,” Burroughs Coach Doug Nicol said. “I was able to get lots of girls in in certain positions the second game and see how they would react against a good team.

BURBANK - If there was a good time for the Crescenta Valley High softball team to get to a Burroughs High squad that was reeling, Tuesday's Pacific League contest was the perfect opportunity. The Indians were fresh off a loss last week to rival Burbank. To make matters worse, the team was without its all-league starting catcher after she was thrown out of the game against the Bulldogs and was forced to sit out the contest against the Falcons. She was one of four players missing from the Burroughs roster for various reasons Tuesday.

In a contest that included four yellow cards, one penalty kick and several injuries, Burroughs will have a win to soothe its bruises as the Indians topped Burbank, 1-0. “I've seen a lot of cool things in sports and this was one of them,” Indians first-year Coach Brady Riggs said.

BURBANK - About all that was absent from Monday evening's wild Pacific League boys' basketball contest between visiting Crescenta Valley High and Burroughs was a miracle shot. And yet, that was almost a reality. A half-court heave from Falcons senior forward Eric Patten hit the bottom of the net and concluded a frenzied contest that resulted with a thrilling 82-80 victory for the Indians. “These types of games are always fun and always exciting. We knew this was going to be a battle with Crescenta Valley,” Indians Coach Adam Hochberg said.

BURBANK - The Burbank High girls' volleyball team looked like a tough squad to beat Thursday in the first game of a Pacific League contest. The Bulldogs, the defending co-league champions, came roaring out of the gate playing great defense and hitting the ball well in the opening stanza against the Indians. However, Burbank couldn't keep up the momentum, as Burroughs came storming back, winning the next three games, and walking away with a 17-25, 25-21, 25-15, 25-19, victory at Burbank.

While they have their sights set on the future, the Burroughs High football coaches and players can't forget about the past. What the Indians want to remember is the feeling they experienced last year after a disappointing 2012 season. The disappointments started with a 4-6 showing on the year and culminated with a 4-3 record in the Pacific League, tying Burroughs for third place and missing out on a spot in the CIF Southern Section Southeast Division playoffs. That was not what the program has been accustomed to in recent years, having captured Pacific League championships in 2006, 2009, 2010 and 2011.

BURBANK - In recent years, the matchup between the Crescenta Valley High and Burroughs boys' soccer teams seems to bring out the best in both squads. It was no different Monday, as the Falcons and Indians faced one another for the second time this season. It was a spirited battle throughout, with both teams enjoying their share of scoring chances over the course of the first 75 minutes. But despite the opportunities, neither squad could put the ball in the back of the net. That changed, however, in the 76th minute when Burroughs' Brandon Gerlach scored a goal to break a scoreless deadlock.

BURBANK - An opportunity to move into a tie for fourth place awaited the Burroughs and Glendale high baseball teams before Tuesday's Pacific League game. While the visiting Nitros struck first, they did not take advantage of several opportunities, which allowed the Indians to rally for four runs over the last two innings in a come-from-behind 4-1 victory at Tomahawk Field. With the win, Burroughs improved to 9-9 overall and 3-4 in league heading into Friday's cross-town showdown with Burbank (5-11, 2-5)

Craig Sherwood has been a baseball coaching staple in the city for four decades. For the past three years, Sherwood has served as an assistant under Bob Hart at Burbank High. Last season, the Bulldogs captured a share of the Pacific League championship for the first time on 22 years. Next season, instead of standing next to Hart in the Burbank dugout, Sherwood will be facing him from across the field as a rival. Sherwood, a Burroughs graduate and former assistant coach, was hired to head the Indians on Tuesday, as he becomes the program's third coach in less than two years.
