BURROUGHS HIGH — Looking at the semifinal bracket for the CIF Southern Section Division II playoffs, one team might appear out of place to those familiar with the division's top squads. The top three seeds are represented among the final four, as No. 1 Palm Desert, No. 2 Arcadia and No. 3 Santa Monica have probably surprised few by advancing to the semifinals. In fact, many probably figured the three would be right where they are at this point in the season. The fourth squad in the semifinals is one that many are probably surprised has gotten this far in the postseason.

BURBANK — There was a major roadblock facing the Burroughs High boys' tennis team in its quest to qualify for its first-ever trip to a CIF Southern Section championship match. The roadblock came in the form of a talented Palm Desert squad. The Indians had to hit the road Tuesday to take on the host Aztecs in a Division II semifinal contest. Palm Desert, the No. 1 seed, came into the match with just one loss this season, had two CIF titles (1995 and 2002) to its credit and advanced to two championship matches (2008 and 2010)

PALM DESERT - For the second postseason in a row, the Burroughs High boys' tennis team saw its bid to reach the CIF Southern Section Division II final dry up in the desert. Faced with playing in temperatures that reached 105 degrees in the heart of the Coachella Valley on Tuesday afternoon - and about 120 degrees on the court - Burroughs saw its season come to an end with a 14-4 semifinal road defeat against top-seeded, and defending division champion, Palm Desert. It didn't take long for the Indians (13-3)

There was some controversy involving one the local boys' tennis entries in Thursday's CIF Southern Section Individual Tournament at the University of Redlands. The No. 1 doubles team from Burroughs High, senior Michael Whelan and junior Calvin Fox, were supposed to arrive at the venue at 10 a.m. to begin their competition. But the duo was a no-show. Burroughs Coach Roy Bernhardt said the pair had to default after Whelan wasn't able to attend because of a function at the school.

PALOS VERDES — The Burroughs High boys' tennis coaches hatched a plan they hoped would help their team win its CIF Southern Section Division II quarterfinal match Tuesday against Chadwick. With key players injured, the coaches decided to stack the doubles and put two reserve players at singles, essentially giving up six sets. For the plan to work, however, the Indians' doubles squads would likely have to win eight of nine sets against the Dolphins. The Burroughs doubles teams did exactly what was asked of them, as they captured eight sets to spark the Indians to a 10-8 victory at the Peninsula Roquet Club.

CITY HALL ? Utility customers will have to wait awhile more for a verdict on property tax assessments as means to finance green energy building improvements after the City Council last week voted 4 to 1 to take a ?wait and see? approach. The program, versions of which are in place in cities such as Berkeley and Palm Desert, creates an assessment district that individual property owners could then voluntarily participate in to finance photovoltaic system, wall insulation, pool pumps and other green energy projects, said Joanne Fletcher, assistant general manager of customer service and marketing for Burbank Water and Power.
