There are always high expectations at Bellarmine-Jefferson High when it comes to girls' volleyball. The past few years, the Guards have emerged as the premier program in the city, winning league championships and making deep CIF Southern Section playoff runs.

In addition, the Guards advanced to the Division IVAA semifinals, losing to No. 1-seeded Hemet, 25-16, 25-11, 25-14.

In just its fourth year of existence as a program, many thought the Burroughs High boys' volleyball team pulled off a major feat when it tied Claremont for the Pacific League championship in 2010. The title was the first in program history. However, this past season, the Indians broke through the ceiling of past success when they put together a monumental campaign. Along with capturing the league crown outright, Burroughs (34-5) also advanced to the CIF Southern Section Division III championship after not getting past the second round previously, and qualified for the state playoffs — another first.

PASADENA - The CIF Southern Section Division 2-A quarterfinal volleyball contest between Burroughs High and host Pasadena Poly featured two teams that made the playoffs as the third-place entry from their respective leagues, but have caught fire and made it to the final eight. On Saturday, Poly took the first game from the visiting Indians, who had dropped the first game in both of their previous playoff contests before winning each in five games, before Burroughs pulled out game two, but with the Panthers operating on all cylinders there would be no comeback this time as the home team prevailed, 25-18, 24-26, 25-13, 25-16.

For nearly a half-decade, the Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls' volleyball team has been the most successful of the four programs in the city. Under coach Miguel Segura, the Guards had a streak of seven straight Santa Cruz League championships and a league unbeaten string that has swelled to 52. In addition, Bell-Jeff advanced to the CIF Southern Section quarterfinals for five straight seasons. But Segura, who helped the Guards advance to Division IV-A championship game in 2009, has departed to take the head girls' and boys' volleyball jobs at rival St. Genevieve.

BURROUGHS HIGH — Last season, as far as the Pacific League went, the Burroughs High girls’ volleyball team was in a class of it’s own, going undefeated in 14 matches to capture it’s first title in the league. With more than half the Indians’ starting lineup gone from the 2007 squad, Crescenta Valley came into Tuesday’s Pacific League match intent on showing that the gap between the two squads has closed. But it was Burroughs that played like a more experienced squad when it counted most on Tuesday, pulling out a 25-22, 25-16, 25-22 victory, and as long as the Falcons continue to shrink from pressure situations while the Indians rise to the occasion, it appears Burroughs will retain an edge in the matchup.

LA CRESCENTA — For at least one match, it wasn’t the red and white of Burroughs High taking on the blue and navy of Crescenta Valley in a Pacific League girls’ volleyball match. Instead, both teams were in the pink — literally. The Indians and Falcons players and coaches were decked out in pink and white Thursday as part of the “Dig for the Cure” fundraiser in conjunction with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Along with holding a raffle for various prizes at the match at Crescenta Valley, the athletes from both squads solicited donations for digs accumulated during the league contest.
