BURBANK — The Bellarmine-Jefferson High boys' volleyball team set out to prove something this past season. The Guards were able to accomplish a great deal, setting school records and having the finest season in Bell-Jeff history. For their efforts, the Guards were rewarded with five All-Santa Fe League elections, including an all-time high three first-teamers. "We haven't had that many first-teamers in one season at Bell-Jeff," Coach Miguel Segura said. "It is something the guys can be proud of. It also proves that all their hard work and their focus paid off this season."

BURBANK — In recent years, Providence and Bellarmine- Jefferson highs have established themselves as winning and successful boys’ volleyball programs. Last season, the Guards made a historic run in the CIF Southern Section Division V playoffs, advancing to the quarterfinals. Two years ago, the Pioneers put together a fine campaign, losing in the Division V semifinals. Burroughs and Burbank might look to the Providence and Bell-Jeff programs as inspiration.
