BURROUGHS HIGH — Indeed, rougher waters lay ahead for the Crescenta Valley High boys’ water polo team. For Burroughs, however, it’s much the opposite, as the Indians began Pacific League play this week with the tall task of facing both Glendale and Crescenta Valley. On Thursday, Burroughs was dealt its second lopsided loss in as many contests, as Crescenta Valley rolled to a 23-8 win at Burroughs High. With the outcome of the first week of league play the complete opposite, both teams are surprisingly happy with how their schedules have worked out. “I think it’s better to start that way,” said Crescenta Valley’s Bryan Redfern of playing the likes of Pasadena and Burroughs and working up to matches against Burbank, Glendale and Arcadia — the predicted hierarchy of the league.

BURROUGHS HIGH — At the present juncture in the season, the Hoover and Burroughs highs boys’ water polo teams are two squads headed in different directions. The youthful Indians are starting to come together, putting in place a strong base for what their coach hopes is a promising season next year. For the Tornadoes, hopes of a positive campaign this year have slowly started to dwindle away as of late. It came to a head on Thursday, as Hoover did not play as a cohesive unit and was defeated by upstart Burroughs, 14-11, in a Pacific League road match.

BURBANK HIGH — Defense has carried the Burroughs High boys' soccer team in many matches this season. In Pacific League play, the Indians limited opponents to less than a goal a contest. That defense paid off in a big way Thursday, as Burroughs defeated rival Burbank, 1-0, in a season-finale league match at Burbank High. The win earned the Indians a two-match sweep of their rivals. The win allowed the Indians (7-3-4, 12-6-5 in league) to finish in a tie for second place in league with Arcadia, to earn Burroughs its first trip to the postseason in four years.

LA CRESCENTA — In its first year of Pacific League play, the Burbank High girls' soccer team has made quite a splash. Thus, when perennial league power Crescenta Valley played host to the likewise league-unbeaten Burbank, rivals or not, familiar or not, Friday's contest was supposed to be a showdown of old and new for Pacific supremacy. Technically it was, but nobody predicted the lopsided fashion in which the old guard prevailed, as the Falcons cruised past the Bulldogs, 4-0. "[The players]

BURROUGHS HIGH — A two-game winning streak against Glendale-based teams has led to the Burroughs High boys' basketball team altering the landscape oft he Pacific League. Victories against Glendale on Wednesday and Hoover on Friday night have the Indians believing they can at least get second in league behind powerful Pasadena. Nobody can blame Burroughs for its logic after it posted a 51-43 league home victory against Hoover. Burroughs (13-7) and Hoover (16-5) are tied for second in league with 5-4 records with five games remaining.

BURBANK HIGH — With the Burbank High baseball team eliminated from playoff contention, the Bulldogs were playing for pride when they took on rival Burroughs on Friday. The Indians, on the other hand, were gunning for third place in the Pacific League, which could mean the difference between playing a first-round game or being relegated to a wild-card draw for the postseason. Burroughs scored two runs in the first inning and received fine pitching performances from A.J. Dupre and Kyle Hart to turn back the Bulldogs, 3-1, in a game at Burbank High.

BURROUGHS HIGH — Burbank and Burroughs highs, no strangers to each other from their days of the Foothill League, faced each other for the first time Tuesday evening in Pacific League play. It was the Indians who chalked up the first win against their rival in the new league with a 25-15, 25-11, 25-22 win at home. Burroughs cruised through the first two games, led by Karissa Lagmay (14 kills) and Sara DeLeon (23 assists). "We rely a lot on our serving and attacking," Burroughs Coach Edwin Real said.

BURBANK HIGH — The Burbank High and Crescenta Valley girls’ volleyball teams want to participate in the playoffs in November. In the first of two Pacific League meetings this season, Burbank took a step toward possibly achieving that goal. Talented Crescenta Valley might have regressed a bit. Burbank received 13 kills from middle blocker Narine Kirakosyan and 25 assists from setter Sarah Tubert to pick up a 25-19, 25-23, 23-25, 25-19 home win. “It’s our biggest win of the season,” said Burbank Coach Sarah Brown, who previously served as an assistant at Crescenta Valley for two seasons.

LA CRESCENTA — Upending defending Pacific League champion Crescenta Valley High won’t be an easy task for any of the other teams looking to make a run at the league title, as Burbank found out on Tuesday at Crescenta Valley. The Falcons’ starters made their point early, putting up 10 unanswered goals in the first period, and the reserves that made up most of the lineup for the final three quarters were pretty effective themselves, in securing a 15-6 win the league opener for both teams.
