ARCADIA — In order to advance to the upcoming Division III Tournament, the Burbank 9-10 Baseball All-Stars needed to defeat a team that beat them just three days prior. The District 16 champions lost their second-round game of the Section 2 Tournament to District 40 champion Sherman Oaks on Sunday, but found their way into the finals after getting by Quartz Hill in the loser's bracket. Sherman Oaks remained undefeated by clinching its spot in the finals one day earlier with the win over Burbank, setting up Tuesday's rematch in the championship game.

City officials will be installing a four-way stop sign at the intersection of Oak and Myers streets after requests from dozens of parents with children attending St. Finbar School in Burbank, who argued that the current two-way stop sign was unsafe for children walking to and from school. The Burbank City Council unanimously approved the installation, which went against a recommendation by city staff members that the intersection didn't warrant the change. There are currently two-way stop signs on Myers at the intersection.

BURBANK- For teams playing Providence High's boys' basketball team, it's no secret that containing Marcus LoVett, Jr. is the top priority. But that's far easier said than done. This was especially true as Providence took on visiting Sherman Oaks Notre Dame as part of the 2013 Pioneers Hoops Showdown Saturday night, when the sensational sophomore single-handedly outscored the visiting Mission League team through three quarters on the way to 48 points and a 69-61 victory. “It helps when you have a single player who can take over the game at any time,” Providence Coach Ernest Baskerville said.

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.

MONTROSE - Three and a half innings of near equal baseball gave way to a one-sided slugfest. Unfortunately for the Burbank Major All-Stars baseball team, the visitors were on the wrong side of the blitz, as Sherman Oaks scored five runs in the bottom of the fourth inning, powered by three home runs, en route to delivering an 8-0 victory in Tuesday evening's Section 2 Tournament championship game at Montrose Community Park. With the win, Sherman Oaks earned advancement to Friday's Division III North Tournament first round, while District 16 champion Burbank is halted in a familiar position.
