Crescenta Valley

As the summer draws to a close, it means it's time for the players of the Burroughs High and Burbank girls' golf teams to take to the course and represent their schools for another season. Last season, both Burbank and Burroughs featured squads that had to replace departed talent at the top, and both schools finished outside the top three in the Pacific League and missed the postseason. This year, both squads will look for improvement with more experienced groups. Burbank will have a strong returning player to build around, while Burroughs will feature a potent mix of new and returning talent, as both try to catch last year's co-champions, Arcadia and Crescenta Valley, as well as third-place La Cañada.

GLENDALE — It was important for the Burbank-Crescenta Valley-Foothill Junior All-Stars softball team not get ahead of itself in the District 16 tournament. Temptation was certainly there with just one team — Tujunga — to beat in a best two-out-of-three series for the district title. It certainly appeared Burbank-CV-Foothill didn't take its opponent for granted, though, as it cruised to a pair of 18-0 victories with the district championship win coming Tuesday night at Pelanconi Park in four innings.

GLENDALE - Deep in the pages of the sports guidebook is the belief that there are good losses, that a defeat in the right context can be a positive for a team's longterm goals. See, for example, the Burbank Nationals major baseball team. After losing the first game of the District 16 Tri-Cities Tournament of Champions, something clicked. “Our team at the beginning of the season, we were all quiet,” said Burbank starting pitcher Carter Kessinger. “After we lost, something went through our minds and we started getting more excited.

GLENDALE - The Burbank Nationals major baseball team won all 19 of its games during the regular season. So when coach Thomas Magoon's squad lost its opening-round contest of the Tri-Cities Tournament, it still believed it could win six straight to capture the title. The Nationals are one win away from finishing a memorable season with a championship. PHOTOS: Gangi vs. Nationals boys' baseball Despite allowing a crushing solo home run in the bottom of the first inning, the Nationals rallied once again, riding Blaine Traxel's dominant pitching performance and taking advantage of a pair of errors in the top of the sixth to defeat Crescenta Valley Gangi, 2-1, on Wednesday at Babe Herman Field.

BURBANK - A jubilant group of Burbank High baseball team met pitcher Ricky Perez on the mound shortly after he recorded a strikeout that secured a 4-1 victory against rival Burroughs on Friday. With the win, the Bulldogs clinched a share of the Pacific League title - the program's first since 1991. With equally high stakes in the other dugout, a disappointed Indians' squad saw their league-title hopes squandered, despite matching the Bulldogs' will in a well-played game at Burroughs.

BURBANK - While the likes of Arcadia High, Burroughs and Crescenta Valley are jockeying for Pacific League softball playoff positioning, Burbank, the top-ranked team in CIF Southern Section Division III, continues to ride roughshod over the league. The Bulldogs provided further evidence of that on Tuesday afternoon, taking a big step forward in the hopes of clinching a league crown, as they used big innings, powerful and opportunistic offense and the steady, if not spectacular, arm of Caitlyn Brooks to roll to a 10-2 league win over Crescenta Valley at McCambridge Park.

BURBANK - All four area boys' golf teams had something at stake Tuesday leading into the Pacific League prelims at De Bell Golf Club. Each team looked to send at least one athlete to the league's individual tournament. Three of the squads aimed to clinch spots in the CIF Southern Section Northern Team Divisional. Each left De Bell pleased, as Burbank, Crescenta Valley and Burroughs qualified for the playoffs and nine area players moved on to Wednesday's individual final, which will also include a pair of Glendale athletes.
