NORTHEAST GLENDALE - After putting up five runs in the second inning, the Burbank High baseball team seemingly fizzled away as host Crescenta Valley continued producing at a consistent rate. Unfazed by the deficit, the Falcons steadily chipped away and caught the Bulldogs in the fourth, pulling away with the go-ahead run in the sixth Friday evening en route to an 8-5 win at Stengel Field and an undefeated Pacific League record.

BURBANK - Leading into the start of Pacific League play, Crescenta Valley High's girls' water polo team was the prohibitive favorite to defend its league crown with many prognosticating Glendale or Pasadena as the top challenger. Enter Burroughs, as the upstart Indians surprised many as they set up Thursday afternoon's showdown against the Falcons, which both teams entered undefeated in league. But as the match came to an anticlimactic finish, the Falcons made an emphatic statement that nobody's yet to challenge them for league supremacy after throttling the host Indians, 16-4.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - Even with a double-digit lead and three outs away from seeing the Burbank Junior All-Star baseball team advance to the Section 2 Tournament, Burbank Manager Mike Lockheimer wasn't taking anything for granted Wednesday night. He remained aware Crescenta Valley had the capability of mounting a comeback, having witnessed it Tuesday night. When the final out was recorded Wednesday, Lockheimer breathed a sigh of relief. "With a big lead, I still wasn't comfortable," Lockheimer said after Burbank recorded a 24-14 victory against Crescenta Valley in the District 16 if-necessary championship contest at Scholl Canyon Ball Fields.

Tom Crowther BURBANK HIGH -- Once Crescenta Valley High's James Jenkins finally started sinking his free throws, Burbank High had no answer for the Falcons' 6-foot-6 center. The junior had 20 points by the time the final quarter rolled around Thursday, despite a 1-of-6 start from the foul line. He hit three of his four fourth-quarter free throws -- in a quarter where the Falcons shot 17 from the stripe. That type of late shooting helped CV get by Burbank High, 70-63, in the semifinals of the 31th annual Burbank-Hoover Tournament at Burbank High.

GLENDALE — With a suddenly torrid offense and overwhelming pitching staff, it's no wonder the Crescenta Valley High baseball team has feasted on its most recent competition. Ask Burbank High Coach Bob Hart, who watched Crescenta Valley post a 10-0 Pacific League victory against Burbank on Wednesday night at Stengel Field. The game was called in the bottom of the fifth inning because of the 10-run mercy rule. The Falcons (19-2, 10-1 in league) made believers out of him. "They are a well-coached team with lots of talent," said Hart, whose team suffered a 9-0 home loss to the Falcons on March 20. "They have a prototype lead-off hitter.

Hamlet Nalbandyan Maybe it was during halftime that the Crescenta Valley High girls' basketball team realized that it had a player that was at least three inches taller than anyone on the court. Because after the Falcons finally got the ball in the hands of 6-foot-1 senior center Lindsay Myers, they were able to dominate against a scrappy Burroughs squad. Going up against an Indian team with no player taller than 5-10, Myers did as she pleased during the final 16 minutes, which allowed CV to overcome a three-point deficit and post a 60-49 nonleague home victory.

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.

BURBANK - With its unforgiving barrancas and challenging layout, there were girls' golfers who didn't particularly enjoy playing at De Bell Golf Club Thursday, the site of the 12th annual Magnolia Park Optimist Club Girls' High School Invitational. Included in that group were Crescenta Valley High's Jocelyn Chia and Burbank's Irene Maemura, although it is her team's home course. However, there were also players who enjoyed the challenges that De Bell presented, including Burroughs' Stephanie Adachi and Sherman Oaks Notre Dame's Katelyn Reynolds.
