MEMORIAL FIELD — As Burroughs High boys’ soccer Coach Mike Kodama walked off Memorial Field on Friday, the last thing he was thinking about was himself. Despite guiding the program for 22 years and coaching his final match for the Indians, he had something else on his mind. “It’s not about me, it’s about the guys, and the seniors who are playing their last game,” Kodama said. The coach couldn’t have been more proud of the way his Indians performed in their CIF Southern Section Division IV quarterfinal contest at home.

BURROUGHS HIGH - There are not many instances when a team is coached by a hall of famer. However, the Burroughs High boys' soccer team has gotten just that opportunity. Mike Kodama, a legendary Indians' coach and 2009 Burroughs Athletic Hall of Fame inductee, has returned to the school to again lead the boys' soccer program. "That's kind of funny," said Kodama, referring to his hall-of-fame credentials. "I guess that will have to update the plaque some time. " Kodama's hall-of-fame plaque is chalk full of accomplishments, as he served as the Indians' coach for 22 years before stepping down in 2009.

Heading out on the road to participate in a playoff contest didn't seem to faze the Burroughs High boys' soccer team. The Indians accepted the challenge Wednesday afternoon, building an early cushion en route to a 2-1 CIF Southern Section Division III second-round victory against Redlands East Valley at Redlands Sports Park. Burroughs (15-6-3) will meet host Palmdale in a quarterfinal match, scheduled for 5 p.m. Friday. It marked the first time since 2009 that the Indians reached the quarterfinals, when they fell to top-seeded Channel Islands, 1-0. “It's always difficult to go out on the road and win a game, especially in the playoffs, so this was just a huge accomplishment,” said Burroughs Coach Michael Kodama, who received first-half goals from Xavi Izquieta and Brandon Gerlach before watching the Indians stave off a late comeback bid by the Wildcats (22-2-3)

With college applications and final exams behind them — for now — the 96 members of Providence High School’s Class of 2011 said their goodbyes at commencement Saturday. “I’m excited to go to college because it seems like more freedom,” said Natalie Ohrt, who will enroll in the fall at Cal State Channel Islands. “But I am sad because I will miss my friends every day.” The ceremony drew a packed crowd to Liberty Hall at Forest Lawn, Hollywood, where guests created their own audio track of applause after a faulty sound system rendered the entrance song inaudible.

Jeff Tully They began their season in August in the heat of summer, practicing during the day in 90- and 100-degree temperatures.

In his pencil drawings, artist Antonio Pelayo Jr. keeps the viewer guessing if they are photographs or drawings. Each painstaking work takes Pelayo between 100 to 200 hours to complete, so any one piece may take three to eight months. "Most people think, when they first look at it, that it's a photograph," he said. "But when they come closer, they see it's just a pencil drawing." He describes his work as meticulous and precise. "Ninety percent of what I do is patience and the rest is skill and talent," he said.
