Molly Shore A lot of determination and countless hours spent hitting the books paid off for Burroughs High School senior Rolando Flores. With a top grade-point average of 4.6, he is the valedictorian of his graduating class and will attend Harvard in the fall. "There really isn't any formula for it; it's really all just hard work," Flores, 18, said. A first-generation American, Flores said that by the fifth grade he became an independent learner, although his Mexican-born parents consistently encouraged him to excel in school.

Mark R. Madler Burbank High School sophomore Deysy Ordonez plans to spend the summer at Harvard University, earning college credit and experiencing the life of a college freshman. But then again, maybe she won't. She has been unable to get any financial aid from the university. "I was disappointed in that," she said, referring to a letter she received from the university last month telling her she can't get any financial aid because other students had beaten her to the grants.

Stephen Saito is a graduate of Burbank High School and is a junior at the University of Texas at Austin. He also serves as the entertainment editor for The Daily Texan. The tagline for the new Jason Lee-Tom Green comedy "Stealing Harvard" reads "Their intentions were honorable. Their methods were criminal." And after a long 83 minutes, the tagline feels much more appropriate for the filmmakers of "Stealing Harvard" rather than anything in the film's plot.

You can improve your health while benefiting the health of the planet. The April 2007 issue of the Harvard Health Letter suggests the following "green" health tips: 1. Walk or bike to work. Combining exercise and a commute builds healthful activity into your day and reduces fuel use and vehicle emissions. Could there be a better good-for-you, good-for-the-planet twofer? 2. Go to bed early. Studies have identified a correlation between short sleep and being overweight.

BURBANK - The Bellarmine-Jefferson High softball team is at it again. The Guards coaches and players are convinced that playing against teams from higher divisions and tough programs last season ultimately led them to capturing the CIF Southern Section Division VI championship. Following that guideline, Bell-Jeff is again going up against top competition this season. Thursday, that competition came in the form of Harvard-Westlake, a Division III program that tied for the Mission League title in 2013.

Sang Lee SUN VALLEY -- Bellarmine-Jefferson High boys' basketball Coach Eli Essa and assistant Roger Normile studied film of Harvard-Westlake High preceding its Village Christian Summer League game with the dominant squad. The coaches watched the mistakes other teams made against Harvard-Westlake and used the knowledge to create a special game plan that would help slow down the mighty Wolverines. But when the game began something happened that Essa and Normile could not predict: their team forgot everything it had worked on. The sudden lapse resulted in a 69-25 victory Monday for Harvard-Westlake, which improved its record to 22-3.

NORTH HOLLYWOOD ? The schedule makers did Burroughs High no favors this season. For the second week, the Indians were on the road, and for the second time fell short, losing to Harvard-Westlake, 27-15, in a nonleague game Friday night at Ted Slavin Field on the Harvard-Westlake campus. And though the Indians are winless, there is at least something positive to build upon for the upcoming games. ?These games are only going to make us better,? Burroughs Coach Keith Knoop said.

BURBANK - The Burroughs High girls' basketball team had no problem scoring against Harvard-Westlake on Friday in a consolation game of its own Burroughs Magnolia Park Optimist Tournament. In fact, the Indians tallied 63 points. However, as shots were falling for Burroughs on offense, the defense had its problems containing the Wolverines. Despite their defense woes, the Indians had a lead with just more than three minutes remaining in the game. But a poor defensive showing in the final few minutes, coupled with scoring woes, ultimately led to a 76-63 loss to Harvard-Westlake at Burroughs High.

LAKE BALBOA - The Bellarmine-Jefferson High softball coaches wanted the team to play a tough nonleague schedule in order to have it prepared for Santa Cruz League and CIF Southern Section competition. That's why the coaches scheduled Harvard-Westlake, even though the Wolverines play in Division III and the Guards play in Division VI. Last season, a game between the two squads ended in a tie. However, Bell-Jeff faced Harvard-Westlake on Tuesday to open its season depleted. Several Guards are banged up with injuries and their star pitcher is academically ineligible.

STUDIO CITY — There's nothing that could take away the sting of losing a playoff match and the season coming to an end for the Burbank High girls' water polo team Friday. But if it's any consolation, the Bulldogs played perhaps their finest contest of the season and pushed No. 5 Harvard-Westlake to the limit in losing a CIF Southern Section Division IV second-round match, 11-8, on the road. The Burbank players might also find solace in the fact that they were the only team in program history to win a regular-season league championship, host a postseason match and win a postseason match.
