Burroughs High

GLENDALE - A 6-foot-4 target is hard to miss. Burroughs High senior wide receiver Conor Joyce and quarterback Andrew Williams proved that for most of Friday evening, while opposing Glendale seemed powerless to stop them. The duo connected on four touchdowns to help the visiting Indians score 28 unanswered points en route to a 35-14 victory over Glendale at Moyse Field in the Pacific League opener. “It seemed like everything was coming my way,” said the 6-4 Joyce. “I've never experienced a game like this.

BURBANK - It was not too long ago that the Burroughs High girls water polo team was in the same boat that Pasadena finds itself this season. The Bulldogs have a young team with just four seniors. The squad is still finding its way and still developing as a unit. The Indians are young as well, but they do have a few key experienced players from last season's CIF Southern Section Division V quarterfinal squad. That experience was evident Tuesday in a Pacific League match against host Pasadena.

BURBANK - For many of the Burroughs High girls' basketball players, they had never experienced what it's like to get a win in the CIF Southern Section playoffs. That's because coming into Saturday night's Division I-A first-round game, the Indians hadn't posted a postseason win since 2011. That year Burroughs advanced to the quarterfinals, losing to Inglewood. It might have been some playoff jitters that affected Burroughs in its opener at home against Riverside Poly. The Indians were shaky in the first quarter and couldn't seem to get into a rhythm.

BURBANK - There was a logjam for second place among three one-loss football teams in the Pacific League heading into Friday night's games. Burroughs High was one of those teams, along with Crescenta Valley and Arcadia, who were all chasing league-leading Muir going into the third-to-last game of the regular season. There were plenty of scenarios involving the Indians, who hosted Pasadena at Memorial Field. What was clear was that Burroughs needed a win to stay in the mix for the playoffs, and keep its outside hopes for a league title alive.

SEAL BEACH - Maybe the most positive and yet frustrating aspect for Burroughs High junior Garrett Auproux was that the singles player had his chances at Saturday's CIF Southern Section Boys' Individual Tennis championships. Auproux entered his semifinal match seeded fourth and knocked on the door of a potential upset before falling to top-seeded junior Gage Brymer of Irvine University, 7-5, 6-3, at the Seal Beach Tennis Center. "This is not my first time playing Gage, I think I've already played him like eight times in my junior career," Auproux said.

PASADENA - It was one of the worst ways to start what was arguably its most important match of the season. In a first-place Pacific League battle with Pasadena on Wednesday, the Burroughs High boys' soccer team put itself in a precarious situation after one of its players drew a red card for a foul inside the goalbox in the first 15 seconds of the contest on the road. The Bulldogs were given a penalty kick, which they made good on. But what was more detrimental for Burroughs was that it was forced to play a man down.

It was something that Brandon Gerlach had done hundreds, maybe even thousands of times since he took up soccer as a boy. In a nonleague match in December, the Burroughs High senior midfielder slid a few times on the artificial turf, opening a sizable wound on his thigh. “I was wearing my old sliders because I couldn't find my new ones and those ones had a hole in them,” Gerlach said. “I ended up sliding a couple of times and I opened up my leg pretty good. But I just thought 'OK, I'll just put some bandages over it and it should be fine.'” Patched up, Gerlach didn't miss his next start for the Indians.

A season ago, the Burroughs High baseball team found itself involved in an underage drinking scandal leading to its season being cut short. That forced the Indians to primarily rebuild their program, which included bringing in a new coach. Under the guidance of Coach Kiel Holmes, the Indians found themselves on higher ground by finishing fourth in the Pacific League and qualifying for the CIF Southern Section Division II playoffs. Unfortunately for the Indians, their postseason run was brief as Jarek York hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the seventh inning to lift Ventura to a 4-1 win in a CIF Southern Section Division III wild-card game Tuesday afternoon.

BURROUGHS HIGH — While it’s virtually a lock which teams will vie for the Pacific League championship, the Crescenta Valley and Burroughs high boys’ volleyball teams might be in a fierce battle for third. Barring any unforeseen setbacks, Claremont and Arcadia are expected to challenge for league supremacy once again. However, things got a bit tighter in the middle of the league standings after Burroughs received a team-high 21 digs and 14 kills from senior outside hitter Josh Marbach to earn an 18-25, 25-17, 21-25, 25-19, 15-10 league victory against visiting Crescenta Valley on Wednesday afternoon.

To recoup the costs of the graduation ceremonies at Burbank and Burroughs high schools, officials will now charge $10 per graduation ticket, beyond the handful of free tickets that seniors receive each year. "We've had some years of cuts so the principals are looking at the growing costs of graduation," said Emilio Urioste, director of secondary education of Burbank Unified. The extra tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Burroughs seniors will continue to get five free tickets, while Burbank seniors will get four.
