BURBANK — Burroughs High swimming Coach Danny Garcia and his first-year counterpart at Burbank, Chris Goldberg, agree about which school should be the powerhouse in the Pacific League this season. "CV is just going to be untouchable," Garcia said. "They are just so good that I don't think anyone is going to come close to them in our league. " Goldberg offered a similar outlook. "They are going to be very tough," he said about the Falcons. "They usually have excellent swimmers, and I think they'll have another good group this season.

LUTHER BURBANK MIDDLE SCHOOL — The Burroughs High and Glendale boys' soccer teams took part in a battle for second place in the Pacific League on Tuesday. More importantly, the Indians and Nitros were trying to gain an all-important win to stay within striking distance of league-leading Crescenta Valley, which came into its Tuesday match with Muir with a four-point cushion. Burroughs definitely looked like the more motivated team, as the Indians turned up the pressure early — building up a three-goal lead in the first half — to earn a resounding 6-0 victory against the visiting Nitros at Luther Burbank Middle School.

LA CRESCENTA — Something had to give. The Burroughs High and Crescenta Valley boys' soccer teams came into their Pacific League match Wednesday with just one point separating them in the standings. While the Falcons sat in first, the Indians were right behind in second. In addition, Crescenta Valley — the defending league champion — was unbeaten in its last six matches and Burroughs had not lost in its previous five. Adding to the drama was the fact that the squads tied the first time they played one another.

BURROUGHS HIGH — Since joining the Pacific League five years ago, the Burroughs High girls' basketball team has had its share of close battles with Crescenta Valley. During the four-year span, the teams took turns besting one another, as the Indians finished ahead of the Falcons twice and Crescenta Valley finished ahead of Burroughs twice. In addition, the squads never placed lower than fourth place in league. This season things have changed, however, as the Falcons field a young, inexperienced team and the Indians field one of the most successful teams in years.

LA CRESCENTA — With rain rarely relenting and the ball speeding up, stopping and switching at an unpredictable rate, when Crescenta Valley High's girls' soccer team hosted Burroughs, the Pacific League match quickly became one in which anything could happen. The anything, essentially, turned out to be nothing. Both the Falcons and Indians survived scoring scares before walking away with a 0-0 tie on a wet and rainy Friday afternoon at CV High. With Crescenta Valley earning a 2-2 tie against Burbank two days earlier, Burroughs Coach Louie Binda knew the Falcons would come out with a solid effort.
