ARCADIA - Despite trailing host Arcadia through the final three quarters Friday, the Burbank High girls' basketball team shill held out hope that it could win the Pacific League contest. The Bulldogs were able to whittle what was a 15-point deficit with just over three minutes remaining in the game down to a seemingly manageable eight points just under the two-minute mark. At that point, it appeared the Bulldogs had momentum in their side. But Burbank missed some easy shots late, sealing its fate.

GLENDALE - The Hoover High and Burroughs boys' basketball teams entered Tuesday's Pacific League opener after enjoying success during tournament play. While the Tornadoes notched consolation championship victories in the Whittier Tournament and the Providence Paul Sutton Tip-Off Classic, the Indians had a championship effort in the Pasadena Poly tournament. The teams were hoping that success would translate into fine showings in league competition this season. Burroughs has to be feeling better about its chances in the Pacific League after earning a 74-51 victory on Hoover's home floor.

Lilit Vardanyan doesn't have to look far for inspiration. In fact, the Burbank High junior needs to look no further than her family when it comes to encouragement on the tennis court. Vardanyan's uncle is former tennis professional Sargis Sargsian, who won one singles and two doubles titles during his career on the ATP Tour. Sargsian participated in three Summer Olympic Games, in 1996, 2000 and 2004, and reached career-high rankings of No. 38 in singles and No. 33 in doubles in the world during 2004.

It was a pairing that might never have happened. When Alexa Gregorian began her senior season for the Crescenta Valley High girls' tennis team, she came in as a successful singles player, advancing to the Pacific League tournament semifinals as a junior. "I had played singles, so I just expected that I was going to be playing singles my senior year," Gregorian said. "I had always been a singles player and I liked playing singles. " Jackie Dilanchyan started her final season with the Falcons as a strong doubles competitor, having teamed up with partner Viktoriya Shumakova a year earlier to earn a spot in the league doubles semifinals.

Burbank High football had a football player garner one of the Pacific League's top awards despite playing limited minutes. Burroughs had a player earn one of the league's top awards after playing the entire campaign with a major injury. With Bulldog James Williams and Indian Hawkins Mann leading the way, the two local teams had their share of athletes earn All-Pacific League honors, as 28 Burbank and Burroughs players were selected on this year's list. Burbank, which tied for second in league and advanced to the CIF Southern Section Southeast Division semifinals, had 13 players earn accolades, while Burroughs, which also tied for second, landed 15 players on the list.

ARCADIA - On the surface, Thursday afternoon's Pacific League cross-country championships appeared little more than a large Arcadia High celebration. After all, the Apaches won both the boys' and girls' team titles and claimed each race's individual crown at Arcadia County Park. PHOTOS: Pacific League cross country final   Yet, quite a few local teams made noise, both surprisingly and expectedly, led by the Burbank boys and Crescenta Valley girls, who finished second in their respective races, while the Crescenta Valley and Burroughs boys and the Burbank and Hoover girls all earned spots to the CIF Southern Section divisional preliminaries at Mt. San Antonio College on Nov. 16. Maybe no team made a bigger splash than did the Division I fifth-ranked Bulldog boys, who appear to be surging and demonstrated their prowess by knocking off seventh-ranked Crescenta Valley for the first time this season, 47-63, for second place in league.

BURBANK - Burbank High girls' volleyball Coach Sarah Brown explained to her team what it needed to do in its Pacific League finale Tuesday against cross-town rival Burroughs. If the Bulldogs could beat the Indians, the teams would tie for second place in league. However, if Burbank could sweep host Burroughs, it would earn the No. 2 seed from the league for the CIF Southern Section playoffs due to margin of victory. That might have been a tall order, taking into consideration the Bulldogs lost in four games to their rival the first time the teams played earlier this season.

ARCADIA - The Burroughs High football team entered Friday night's contest with Arcadia very much still in the hunt for a Pacific League championship. However, the Indians would need a little help from a league foe to stay in the running. Burroughs was hoping Crescenta Valley would be able to pull of an upset of league-leading Muir on Friday that would create a logjam of three teams at the top of the standings. That didn't happen. The Falcons were defeated by the Mustangs, who remain the lone undefeated league team.
