CHINO - Up by 18 points at halftime, it didn't stand to reason that the Burroughs High girls' basketball team would have to sweat another close finish. Yet, the Indians found themselves again in a tight contest late, this time against host Chino in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division I-A playoffs on Wednesday evening. Fortunately for Burroughs, the setting was familiar to a squad that won a Pacific League championship thanks in part to several close victories.

BURBANK - It was a successful showing for a group of local boys' tennis players in the 2013 Pacific League Tournament. A year ago, Burroughs High's Sawyer Patterson defeated Hoover's Oleg Simonyan, 6-3, 6-4, to take the singles title at the league final. The Indians also received a league title from the doubles squad of Michael Whelan and Calvin Fox, which rebounded to notch a 5-7, 7-5, 10-6, victory against cross-town rivals Keon Park and Clayton Pauff of Burbank. All five local players earned All-Area accolades.

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.

OAK PARK — Sometimes the other team is just better. That was the case as the Burroughs High girls' soccer team traveled to Oak Park to take on the undefeated Eagles on Friday in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs. The Indians dropped the contest, 3-0, with two of Oak Park's goals coming on set pieces. Entering the opening playoff contest, the Eagles had scored 80 goals in 22 games, compared to just 36 in 21 games for Burroughs. In a game of lopsided possession, the result could have been much worse for the Indians (8-11-2)

With its two top players no longer on the team, the Burroughs High boys' basketball team was undermanned when it traveled to Placentia Valencia on Friday for its CIF Southern Section Division II-AA first-round game. The Indians simply didn't have enough talent to stay with the Tigers, as Valencia rolled to a 61-38 victory. "The guys gave a great effort tonight and I ended up going with a lot of youth," Burroughs Coach Adam Hochberg said. "We were a little careless with the ball at certain times, but I thought we executed things pretty well.

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.
