Jeff Tully GRIFFITH PARK -- It's no revelation that the rest of the cross-country teams in the Foothill League will be trying to catch powerful Canyon High this season. Canyon proved its strength Tuesday at Griffith Park by finishing first in both the boys' and girls' races in the opening league meet. The Cowboys team proved why they are ranked No. 1 in CIF Southern Section Division I and 16th in the nation by putting five runners in the top six spots.

The Indians mustered just two points in the first quarter Friday, and never got on track, falling to visiting Canyon High, 51-38, in league game at Burroughs. The loss was upsetting for first-year Burroughs Coach Vicky Oganyan. "We got to make lay-ups to win a game," Oganyan said.

MCCAMBRIDGE PARK ? It was understandable why the Burbank High softball players might have been a little nervous before their Foothill League opener against Canyon High. The Bulldogs came into the contest riding a 10-game winning streak and the team is off to one of its best starts in program history. Throw in the pressure of being ranked No. 8 in CIF Southern Section Division I, and the young Burbank squad had reason to be apprehensive. However, despite the stress, the Bulldogs were able to overcome some early jitters to defeat the Cowboys, 7-2, at McCambridge Park.

Jeff Tully Burbank vs. Hart WHEN: 7 p.m. Friday. WHERE: Canyon High. RECORDS: The Bulldogs are 1-4; the Indians are 4-0. LAST WEEK: Burbank defeated Glendale, 28-27; Hart defeated Lakewood, 53-17. OUTLOOK: The Bulldogs may have only a short time to savor their victory last week in the nonleague finale. That's because they face a very good team to open Foothill League play. The Indians -- ranked No. 2 in CIF Southern Section Division III -- posses a potent offense that has helped the team to wins against the Lancers, L.A. Banning, Westlake and Palmdale.
