ARCADIA - With the Arcadia High boys' track team being a perennial powerhouse in the Pacific League, Burroughs received some encouraging news two weeks ago. That news came in the form of a Burbank win over the Apaches, giving the Indians hope that they too could possibly topple the defending league champions. Burroughs realized that aspiration Wednesday, as it remained undefeated in league with a 72 ½-63 ½ victory over the Apaches in a double-dual meet that included Hoover at Arcadia High.

The Indians and Falcons met Friday night in the first of two head-to-head contests, with each squad undefeated in league. Thanks to a big effort from Tristan Martin, the Indians are the only unbeaten team standing in league.

ARCADIA - Burbank High track and field Coach Darin Wolf surmised that his boys' team would have to have a lot go its way if it hoped to upset perennial Pacific League champion Arcadia in a league dual meet Wednesday with Pasadena. Instead, the Bulldogs suffered their share of woes. In the first event of the meet, the 4x100-meter relay, Josh Cantong pulled up injured in the race and the Bulldogs didn't finish. Cantong, who was also slated to compete in the 200, 400 and the 4x400 relay, was done for the day. "That was a loss of potentially 20 points right there," Wolf said.

BURBANK - Perhaps the smallest and yet most complex difference that separated the Burroughs High and Glendale softball teams in Tuesday afternoon's Pacific League opener was defense. Even simpler put, the young Nitros committed five errors, while the more veteran Indians minimized their one mistake in an 11-1 win called after five innings at Jack Smock Field at Olive Park in Burbank.

After moving from the Las Vegas area last summer, Yazzy Sa'Dullah had little difficulty adjusting to the culture Burbank had to offer. What she found very appealing was playing for the Burbank High girls' basketball team. It didn't take long for Sa'Dullah to make an impression after trying out for the team during the first week of school in August. After meeting Burbank Coach Bruce Breeden, she made a favorable impression on the Bulldogs following the first practice session. “We had a five-on-five session and you could see she was quite a player within about five minutes,” Breeden said.

No matter where Clarissa Guerrero was positioned on the soccer field, she was determined to make the best of every situation. "I will play anywhere they need me on the field," said Guerrero, who just completed her senior season on the Burbank High girls' team. "If they needed me at forward I would play there or if them needed me on defense I would play there, too. I would even play goalie if they needed me there. " Primarily a forward, there were times this past season when Bulldogs Coach Eric Montoya used the four-year starter all over the field.

BURBANK - With just one win in 13 league games for the Burbank High boys' soccer team, some thought Burroughs had a gimme when it faced the Bulldogs on Thursday needing a win to clinch its second straight Pacific League championship. But the match was anything but a walk-over for the Indians. Although Burroughs clung to a one-goal lead more than half way through the second half, it was able to come on late in the contest, and sparked by a hat trick from Milosh Petko, the Indians secured a 4-2 victory that allowed them to walk off Memorial Field as league champions.
