BURBANK HIGH — The Burbank High football team was hoping Friday would be a momentous day in the history of the school’s sports program. After months of construction and a price tag more than $4 million, the school’s new, on-campus state-of-the-art artificial football field was finished and ready to go. The Bulldogs were chomping at the bit to practice on the field for the first time. However, because of unhealthful conditions caused by the nearby fires, Burbank wasn’t able to practice Friday.

BURBANK ? Many coaches at Burbank and Burroughs highs are looking forward to making the jump from the Foothill League to the Pacific League. Teams from the two schools will be joining the new league beginning this school year after a long association with the Foothill League, traditionally a tough group of teams. But in girls' golf, the Pacific League could likely prove to be a more talent-laden league than what the Indians and Bulldogs have been used to. "We are joining a very good league," Burroughs Coach Mike Krose said.

GLENDALE - For the second time this season, a Pacific League boys' basketball game between Burbank High and Hoover was, for the most part, one-sided. In their first game Jan. 13, the Bulldogs defeated the Tornadoes by 25 points. On Hoover's senior night Friday, the visiting Bulldogs once again overwhelmed the Tornadoes, while keeping their playoff hopes alive with a 70-31 rout. The win snapped a four-game skid for the Bulldogs in Pacific League play. Tornadoes Coach Jack Van Patten, who has been on the wrong side of blowouts multiple times this season, initially chose to delay the postgame meeting with his players.

BURROUGHS HIGH — If the Burroughs High boys' volleyball program isn't in the midst of a dynasty in the Pacific League, it is well on its way to starting one. Although the Indians were missing their most potent offensive weapon Thursday against visiting Arcadia, Burroughs was still able to roll to a relatively easy three-game league sweep, 25-18, 25-20, 25-9. The victory gives the Indians (18-3, 11-0 in league) a share of their third straight Pacific League championship. Burroughs can notch its second consecutive undefeated league campaign Tuesday when it hosts Claremont.

LA CRESCENTA — With rain rarely relenting and the ball speeding up, stopping and switching at an unpredictable rate, when Crescenta Valley High's girls' soccer team hosted Burroughs, the Pacific League match quickly became one in which anything could happen. The anything, essentially, turned out to be nothing. Both the Falcons and Indians survived scoring scares before walking away with a 0-0 tie on a wet and rainy Friday afternoon at CV High. With Crescenta Valley earning a 2-2 tie against Burbank two days earlier, Burroughs Coach Louie Binda knew the Falcons would come out with a solid effort.

ARCADIA — Players and coaches from the Burbank High softball team realized they would likely be battling Burroughs and Crescenta Valley in their quest for a Pacific League title this season. But Arcadia made an early bid to put itself among the upper-echelon teams of the league, beginning with two straight wins and outscoring its opponents by a combined 25 runs in those two victories. The Bulldogs brought the Apaches back down to earth Tuesday, as they earned a 3-0 win on the road to remain undefeated in the league standings.

As another Pacific League football season ramps up to kickoff Thursday and Friday, plenty of questions surround the eight member teams, ranging from Burbank to Glendale areas to the San Gabriel Valley. Will the league title chase once again come down to reigning co-champions Arcadia and Burroughs? Can Burbank make it back to the brink of a championship after falling one bad half short of a shared title? Or will a young but explosive Muir squad rediscover its league dominance of the recent past?

LA CRESCENTTA — As the reigning league champion and front-runner heading into Tuesday's games, the Burroughs High softball team has made it clear that the Pacific League title will go through the Indians this season. On Tuesday, however, they made a stop in Crescenta Valley, which now holds a few more cards in its quest to knock off the Indians after a 5-2 win that pulled the two teams into a first-place tie with four games left. "Burroughs has a great team, and any time you're playing a great team you have to step up and it's the little things that win the game for you," said Crescenta Valley Coach Dan Berry, whose team bounced back from an 8-2 defeat in the teams' first meeting March 31. It was a variety of things, some big — a pair of two-run home runs — and some little, like a run-saving defensive play by Crescenta Valley late in the game, followed by one fateful Indians pitch that was never intended to be anywhere near the strike zone, that swung the game in favor of the Falcons, and the league title back into play.
