GLENDALE — The Burbank Diamonds definitely had the odds in their favor when they took on Crescenta Valley Muir-Chase Plumbing. Prior to Wednesday’s Tri-Cities District 16 Little League Junior Softball championship game, the Burbank squad had defeated its rival seven straight times this season. The endeavor was made more interesting for the Diamonds because they were missing three players — including two starters — for various reasons. Although Muir-Chase was able to jump out to an early three-run lead, Burbank battled back to secure the championship, 8-4, at School Canyon Ballfields.

BURROUGHS HIGH — It looks as if the Burroughs High softball program is set for a bright future. On the varsity level this past season, the Indians shared the Pacific League championship. It was the program's second straight title. Although Burroughs lost six players to graduation, only three were starters. Despite the losses, it looks like the program will have reinforcements. This past season, the Burroughs junior-varsity team was dominating. Along with going 18-1, the squad also captured a league championship.

Scott Melesky Not many things have gone right for the Glendale Community College women's volleyball team the past decade. The struggling program was scrapped in 2002, after the college's athletic department decided the team couldn't field enough players. The Vaqueros returned last season from their brief hiatus, but struggled, going 1-18 and 0-14 in the Western State Conference. Through two months of gloom, the Vaqueros had two bright spots in setter/outside hitter Jocelyn Abad and Merisol Speat.

GLENDALE — After beginning the Junior Softball Tri-Cities Tournament with two straight wins, the Burbank Diamonds had to wait five days to see who their opponent would be in the championship game. During that span, Crescenta Valley Muir-Chase was battling its way to a berth in the title contest. It was Muir-Chase that came into Monday's contest looking more polished, as it defeated the Diamonds to force an if-necessary championship game Tuesday. In Tuesday's contest at Scholl Canyon Field, the Diamonds bounced back to win the title with an 11-6 victory.
