After rolling to a an CIF Southern Section Southeast Division first-round playoff win last week, the Burbank High football players and coaches figured they had earned a date with No. 2 Diamond Ranch in the next round. But they were surprised to learn that Diamond Ranch, the champion of the Hacienda League, had suffered a 31-28 upset loss last Friday - at home - against Santa Fe, the No. 3 team from the Del Rio League. "We were definitely shocked when we heard the news that Santa Fe had won," Burbank Coach Hector Valencia said.

Just as in football, the city of Burbank is down to one surviving team in cross-country and that's Burbank High. While the Burbank boys' and girls' teams, as well as the Burroughs boys and Providence girls took their shot at Saturday's CIF Southern Section divisional preliminaries at Mt. San Antonio College, only the Bulldogs boys survived and advanced to the following week's divisional finals. The CIF Southern Section Division I fifth-ranked Bulldogs continued their postseason surge by finishing second to Warren, 31-59, in the third heat of the boys' Division I prelims.

WHITTIER - The Burroughs High football team ran into a buzz saw when it faced a relentless offense and suffocating defense in its first round CIF Southern Section Southeast Division playoff game Friday evening. Both strengths proved to be too much for the Indians, who were overwhelmed and outmatched in a 55-7 loss to No. 3 seed La Serna at California High. The defeat ends the season for a Burroughs squad that improved from last season's 4-6 overall record to finish 6-5. The Indians also had 5-2 record the Pacific League for third place - just two years removed from capturing a share of the league title.

It was apparent early on Thursday that the Providence High girls' volleyball team was simply overmatched in its playoff match. After a drive to Santa Barbara to take on No. 1-seeded Laguna Blanca in a CIF Southern Section Division IV-A second-round match, the Pioneers were greeted by an Owls team that had a wealth of talent to go along with the home-court advantage. As a result, the Pioneers suffered a 25-16, 25-11, 25-9 loss. "There is a reason why Laguna Blanca is the No. 1 team," Providence Coach James Jimenez said.

LA HABRA - When Burbank High went on the road for the second round of the 2011 CIF Southern Section Division II-A girls' volleyball playoffs and were swept by Whittier Christian, it was the first time the school had advanced that far in 37 years. Two years later, the Bulldogs, whose roster had experienced a complete turnover since their last visit, were back for another second-round contest Thursday. It was a feat now accomplished for the second time in the last 39 years, and, for the second time in the last three years, the place and opposition would be the same.

BURBANK - For one local team it was pure jubilation. For another local team it was bitter disappointment. When Belllarmine-Jefferson High met Providence Tuesday in a CIF Southern Section Division IV-A first-round playoff match, the cross-town rivalry was in full swing.

Although the Guards jumped out to an early advantage by winning the first two games, the host Pioneers didn't roll over.

BURBANK - In his first six years coaching the Burbank High girls' tennis team, none of Loi Phan's teams had even been able to win a CIF Southern Section first-round playoff match. PHOTOS: Burbank girls' tennis CIF Southern Section first-round playoff Although the Bulldogs had won a few wild-card contests during the coach's tenure, making it to the second round of the postseason has been a difficult task. In his seventh season, the Burbank players were trying to give their coach that elusive victory Wednesday when the Bulldogs opened the playoffs with a home match against La Palma Kennedy.

Burroughs High girls' volleyball Coach Edwin Real was happy with the way his team played early on Tuesday in its CIF Southern Section playoff game. Despite having to travel to Paul Springs for their Division II-A contest, the Indians jumped right in and won the first game. The team was hoping to ride that early success to a win in the opening round. Unfortunately, Burroughs couldn't keep up the momentum, as it lost the next three and suffered a 22-25, 25-22, 25-22, 25-21 loss.

BURBANK - The Burbank High girls' volleyball team was unsuccessful in defending its share of the Pacific League title it earned last season. What the Bulldogs did earn, with a sweep at Burroughs in the final match of the regular season, was a tie for second place with their rivals. This meant that, by way of an aggregate victory total of four games to three in the two meetings with the Indians, Burbank became the No. 2 seed out of the league in the CIF Southern Section Division IIA playoffs, thereby avoiding going on the road to start its postseason run. So as a reward for the regular season finale shutout, the Bulldogs looked to cash in on home court advantage as they hosted Temescal Canyon in the first round.

In all reality, the playoffs started for the Burbank High football team weeks ago. It's a point Bulldogs Coach Hector Valencia has been drilling into his players since they lost their second Pacific League game to Muir, as the coach believed his team would have to win out to have hopes for the playoffs. In turns out he was quite right, and for their efforts, the Bulldogs were rewarded with a CIF Southern Section Southeast Division home game on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. when they open up against visiting Mayfair.
