BURROUGHS HIGH — Karissa Lagmay spent the bulk of Thursday night's CIF Southern Section Division IIA second-round girls' volleyball playoff match leading the Indians. With the junior middle blocker setting the tone, a host of other Indians also stepped up to make it a winning night for Burroughs. Lagmay smashed a team-high 15 kills and had some help in the form of junior middle blocker Tatiana Sao, who chimed in with nine kills, as the two were the driving force behind their team's 23-25, 25-21, 25-18, 25-22, triumph at Burroughs.

RIO MESA — Challenged at times, pushed at others, the Burroughs High boys' volleyball team received the accustomed rude welcome any postseason visitor should expect Saturday evening.

"We didn't play as well as we should of and had to fight harder than the guys expected," Burroughs Coach Joel Brinton said.

BURBANK — The Burroughs High boys' volleyball team was the surprise of the Pacific League this past season. The Indians rebounded from a fourth-place finish in 2009 to become one of the top two squads in the league. Along with two wins against Crescenta Valley for the first time, Burroughs also defeated powerhouse Claremont and earned a share of the league crown. It was the first league championship for a program that has been in existence for just four years — all under Coach Joel Brinton.

The Burroughs High and Burbank girls' volleyball teams stayed among the Pacific League's top teams for the entire 2013 season.

Fittingly, the two local squads ended up tied for second in league behind the champion Apaches. With their fine efforts, Burroughs and Burbank combined to have nine players earn All-Pacific League accolades.

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.

THOUSAND OAKS — There was disappointment, frustration and some sorrow for members of the Burroughs High boys' volleyball team when they lost in the CIF Southern Section Division III championship match Saturday. Many believed the loss marked the end of a successful season for the Indians. However, the program got a lift when it received a berth in the Southern California Volleyball Championships. Unfortunately for Burroughs, it was moved up to Division I for the state tournament, spelling tougher competition than it faced in the Southern Section tournament.

For the past three years, Burroughs High has been the premier boys' volleyball program in the city. The Indians have won or shared the last three Pacific League championships. In addition, the team advanced to the CIF Southern Section Division III semifinals in 2012 and the championship contest in 2011. With a solid group of returners this season, don't look for the Indians to shoot for anything less than league and CIF crowns. “The older guys who have been around are definitely into keeping the tradition going,” Burroughs Coach Joel Brinton said.

Listening to Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls’ volleyball Coach Miguel Segura talk, one might be convinced that he actually thought the Guards had the talent to reach a CIF Southern Section championship match this season. But with just three returning players from last season on a team that started just two seniors, and the fact that Bell-Jeff had never advanced past the quarterfinals, the odds on that actually happening were overwhelming. Many around the Bell-Jeff program likely felt like sophomore opposite hitter Breanna Pedron about the team’s chances of getting to the championship contest.
