BURBANK HIGH — It's the kind of experience high school athletes around the nation thrive on — the excitement of playing in a sporting event before a packed arena of peers, complete with cheerleaders and the smell of food wafting from the snack bar. Hearing-impaired athletes have a proud tradition of competing and making valuable contributions to the social ritual that is high school sports. For the most part, this significant segment of the student body hasn't had many events to call its own. The annual Southern California Deaf and Hard of Hearing Basketball and Cheerleading Tournament is designed to fill that niche by providing those athletes with a memorable day of community and competition.
