BURBANK - The Providence High girls' volleyball team, after a brief interlude to take part in the Burbank Tournament on Saturday, returned to a familiar venue Tuesday to finish a four-game slate of nonleague contests on their home floor to open the season. The final opponent in the homestand was St. Monica Academy of Pasadena, which was unable to avoid mistakes, leading to a clean sweep by the Pioneers, 25-17, 25-12, 25-14, who picked up their play as the match progressed. "I told the girls we can't be satisfied with just winning because we are going to play tougher teams and we just have to keep getting better every opportunity that we get," said Providence Coach James Jimenez, whose team is now 3-1. "That is why I wasn't happy with some of the plays we had because I think we can be better.

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.

BELLARMINE-JEFFERSON HIGH — The Bellarmine-Jefferson High boys’ volleyball team was hoping that St. Genevieve would give it some much-needed competition in the Santa Fe League. The improved Valiants came into Monday’s contest with two straight league wins and no losses, and Guards Coach Miguel Segura was worried about his team’s chances in the match at home. However, when the contest started it was evident that Bell-Jeff wouldn’t get the test it was hoping for. Behind solid hitting, smothering defense and strong serving, the Guards easily swept St. Genevieve, 25-8, 25-14, 25-12, in a contest that took just 50 minutes.

It also proves that all their hard work and their focus paid off this season."
