A Burbank man was convicted this week of a murder that took place more than 14 years ago in Mission Viejo. Mark Glen Morales, 36, was found guilty Monday of shooting 21-year-old Steven Merritt after a party in 1989. Morales reportedly confronted Merritt after Merritt showed up at a party at his parents' home and talked to a female friend of his. Morales was questioned in the week following the murder, but soon after left the country and did not return for about seven years.

BURROUGHS HIGH — The Burroughs High girls' basketball team had plenty of reason to be confident heading into Thursday night's first-round CIF Southern Section Division II-AA playoff game against visiting Mission Viejo. The Pacific-League-champion Indians rolled into the contest winners of 11 straight games and had already set the all-time program mark for victories in a single season. But still, it's playoff time, which means every tournament team has earned the right to compete on this stage.

Jeff Tully When football teams play in the Foothill League, they can expect tough competition. Because the league is so full of talented teams, squads can also usually expect their share of respect when it comes CIF Southern Section playoff selection time. Burbank and Burroughs highs were the recipients of some of that respect Sunday when the Division II pairings were released. Despite finishing fourth and fifth in league, respectfully, the Bulldogs and Indians received at-large berths for the playoffs.

BURBANK — The Bellarmine-Jefferson High boys' basketball team had no problem qualifying for the CIF Southern Section playoffs this season. In fact, the Guards guaranteed their berth by winning their first Santa Fe League championship in 13 years. For the other teams in this year's postseason — Burbank and Providence — making the postseason wasn't as easy. The Bulldogs finished tied for fourth in the Pacific League and were granted an at-large entry into the playoffs.

Jeff Tully Competing in Friday night's CIF Southern Section Division II playoffs was nothing new for the Burroughs High football team. It was the third straight trip to the postseason for the Indians, who haven't put together an impressive playoff run since their glory years in the late-1970s and early-'80s. However, for Burbank, it was a fresh experience, as the Bulldogs hadn't made the playoffs in 12 years. Despite the Indians' experience, the locals suffered the same fate in first-round games, as Burroughs lost to No. 1-ranked Mission Viejo, 35-3, at Memorial Field and Burbank was defeated by host Chino, 28-7.
