BELLARMINE-JEFFERSON HIGH — The Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls’ basketball team isn’t the only program at the school that has the talent to make it to a CIF Southern Section championship. That point was made Tuesday when the Guards girls’ volleyball team earned a spot in the Division IVA title match. Bell-Jeff had little trouble disposing of Desert Hot Springs, as it rolled to a 25-11, 25-18, 25-23 victory at home. The championship run is historic for Bell-Jeff (23-8)

BELLARMINE-JEFFERSON HIGH — Jocelyn Cervantes isn’t the type of team leader who will yell and scream to motivate her teammates. Instead, the girls’ volleyball player from Bellarmine-Jefferson High uses her actions on the court to help inspire and lead the Guards. Bell-Jeff relied a great deal on the sophomore outside hitter for her leadership, as well as her play on the court, this past season, as she helped guide her team to a record-breaking campaign. Her talents have paid off, as she has been named as an All-CIF Southern Section first-team selection in Division IV. Cervantes is the only area player to receive the honor this season.

Jeff Tully BURBANK -- Leading into the high school girls' golf season, players from Burbank and Burroughs highs rarely got mentioned in the media outside of the city. That may have just set a fire under one golfer -- Bulldog junior Moah Chang. "I remember our first match up at Vista Valencia," said Burbank Coach Rich Sarquiz. "Some papers, like the Daily News, were there all following around Hart's Sara Jones. It was like she was the only player there.

Jeff Tully BURROUGHS HIGH -- Some Burroughs High girls' basketball faithful have to be asking if this the year the Indians will win the Foothill League championship? Although the Foothill League is packed with talent this season -- led by a tough Hart team -- Burroughs might have what it takes to land their first title under Coach Doug Nicol. However, to do so, Nicol's squad will also have to get past powerful league foes Valencia and Saugus.

Jeff Tully BURBANK HIGH -- Throughout the season, Burbank High girls' golfers Moah Chang and Grace Woo have had a mentor-student relationship. Chang, a senior, is a veteran of CIF Southern Section competition and has helped pioneer the sport for the Bulldogs. In comparison, Woo is a wide-eyed freshman who has spent the season learning the high school game under the watchful eye of Chang and Coach Rich Sarquez. Obviously, the disciple learned well, as Woo was named the Foothill League's most valuable player this season.

BURBANK - Miguel Segura was a fixture on the sideline of the Bellarmine-Jefferson High volleyball programs for more than a decade. During his tenure, he helped develop a number of all-league and All-CIF Southern Section athletes, his girls' team won seven straight league championships and advanced to the Division IV-A title game in 2009 and his boys' squad made it to the CIF quarterfinals in 2007. However, after heading the boys' program for 11 years and the girls for nine, Segura - a 1996 Bell-Jeff graduate - had stepped down to take over the volleyball programs at rival St. Genevieve.

Listening to Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls’ volleyball Coach Miguel Segura talk, one might be convinced that he actually thought the Guards had the talent to reach a CIF Southern Section championship match this season. But with just three returning players from last season on a team that started just two seniors, and the fact that Bell-Jeff had never advanced past the quarterfinals, the odds on that actually happening were overwhelming. Many around the Bell-Jeff program likely felt like sophomore opposite hitter Breanna Pedron about the team’s chances of getting to the championship contest.

BURBANK HIGH -- Grace Woo doesn't have to try to be a role model. Much like her athletic ability as a girls' golfer at Burbank High, it just comes naturally. With a friendly demeanor and an unassuming nature, it is not like Woo to lobby or push to be a team leader. However, with a steady game and a great deal of talent, the rest of the Bulldog players seem to gravitate to the junior. "I like being a kind of role model and all," Woo said. "But I also think it comes with a lot of pressure.
