BURBANK HIGH — The Burbank High girls’ volleyball program longed to be in the position Crescenta Valley was in last season. The Falcons were one of the top four finishers in the Pacific League and qualified for the CIF Southern Section playoffs. Burbank finished fifth. In addition, Crescenta Valley defeated the Bulldogs in three and four games, respectively, in their two meetings. This season, the teams have appeared to have switched positions, as Burbank is making a push for the postseason and the Falcons are looking to turn things around.

LA CRESCENTA — After getting swept in its last two matches, perhaps the Crescenta Valley High girls' volleyball team is beginning to look beatable to the other teams in the Pacific League. Burbank certainly showed no fear of the Falcons in its league match Thursday, testing Crescenta Valley in a tight first game before eventually falling, 25-23, 25-15, 25-18. "I was kind of afraid we would let it slip," said the Falcons' Ally Hearn (five kills) of the first game in which the Bulldogs battled back to tie the score at 23. "We shouldn't have let it get that close."

GLENDALE — To the Crescenta Valley High football team, it appeared that its opponent on Thursday night, Burroughs, had just a few plays in its playbook. The Falcons saw the Indians run the counter, stretch run and wide receiver screen. "They run three plays," Crescenta Valley High Coach Paul Schilling said. "I have a lot more plays than that, but I'm going to use what works," Indians Coach Keith Knoop said. Those three plays worked pretty well for the Indians.

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.
