Burroughs High boys' basketball Coach Adam Hochberg confirmed late Thursday that starting senior transfer players Amaad Wainright and Rashid Ewing have left the team. Both players transferred to Burroughs from Kansas City, Mo during the offseason and played just one abbreviated season for the Indians. "Wainwright and Ewing have quit the team and left school," Hochberg said. "They left the team over the weekend and checked out of school Tuesday. Yeah, they bailed out on us. " Hochberg said a problem with the players' grades, along with being homesick, prompted them to depart Burroughs and go back home to Missouri.

Jeff Tully BURBANK -- Taken just last year in the major league baseball amateur draft, Wes Hutchison was hoping to rise quickly through the minor-league ranks. But even the former Burroughs High star pitcher is surprised at how rapidly he has progressed since being chosen in the 10th round by the San Francisco Giants in June. Hutchison, 22, has had a productive preseason and got the opportunity to pitch some spring training innings with the Giants' major-league team.

THIS WEEK By going 12-3 last week, Jeff Tully continues to prove his picking prowess and still leads a field that is beginning to thin out. In this week's prep games, Burroughs High will be trying to keep up the momentum from its opening Foothill League win against Saugus last week with a matchup against Valencia on the road. For Burbank, it will try and get back on track with a home league contest against Valencia. In college games, quarterback-hurting UCLA will go with one of its young signal-callers in a conference game against Stanford.

I was glad to see the Leader come out for doing away with the use of a Native American mascot name for Burroughs High. This should have been done many years ago when we first learned how terribly wrong this practice is. Most people just don't understand how bad it is. I did not have strong feelings about this issue either until I saw the documentary "In Whose Honor?" on PBS several years ago. That program so clearly explained the entire issue of Native American mascot names that the most hard-core defender of such names would immediately understand why our Native Americans are so upset and outraged.

"This is a really nice way to end the season," said Krose, whose team finished third in the Foothill League.

BURROUGHS HIGH — Unrelenting rain, bitter cold nor Burroughs High could slow down the Crescenta Valley girls’ water polo team as it continued its unbeaten run through the Pacific League. Paced by Keri Kunkel’s five goals and a tenacious defense, the Falcons continued their run to a fifth straight league title with a resounding 14-3 win against the Indians on a chilly Thursday afternoon at Burroughs High. “Playing in a steady downpour, you have to focus a little more — that’s the nature of a winter sport,” said Crescenta Valley Coach Pete Loporchio, whose team never seemed to lose focus, jumping out to an insurmountable 8-0 advantage.

Jeff Tully BURROUGHS HIGH -- The last time Memorial Field enjoyed a new scoreboard, none of the Burbank and Burroughs high football players were even born. In fact, most of the players' parents weren't even around when the old relic went up in 1948. Weathered and rickety, the ancient scoreboard was not only outdated, but it became increasingly difficult to maintain. With burnt out bulbs and peeling paint, the thing was way past its prime. "We even had trouble finding bulbs to fit the scoreboard, it was that old," said Burroughs Vice Principal of Academics and Athletics Jay Gudzin.
