GLENDALE — Motivation isn’t something lacking for Burroughs High boys’ track and field athlete Dustin Blankenship. Blankenship proved that during Burroughs’ Pacific League dual-meet opener Thursday against host Glendale by winning two distance events and the pole vault event to spark the Indians to a convincing 115-12 victory at Moyse Field. Not many distance runners would find the time to take part in the pole vault, but Blankenship, a junior he is the exception.

ARCADIA - Winning and advancing were the two most important elements for the Burbank and Burroughs high track and field programs at Friday evening's Pacific League Finals at Arcadia's Salter Stadium. The Bulldogs and Indians produced six overall winners and 14 qualifiers to next week's CIF Southern Section Division I preliminaries at Trabuco Hills High. Perhaps the athlete who stood out most was Bulldogs junior Andy Hurtado. While the thrower didn't match his personal-best mark of 151 feet in the discus hit at the recent city meet, Hurtado was still thrilled in winning the discus with a toss of 143 feet, 10 inches.

The Burroughs boys' team defeated the Nitros, 85 1/2-50 1/2 in Thursday's nonleague contest, and the Indian girls' team was victorious, 78-58. Despite powerful winds that reportedly gusted more than 40 miles per hour at times, Burroughs co-Coach John Peebles said the inclement weather shouldn't be used as an excuse.

Jeff Tully Bellarmine-Jefferson High's Gerard Herkey had a busy day in the CIF Southern Section Division IV track and field preliminaries at Moorpark High. Qualifying in three events -- the boys' 800, 1,600 and 3,200 meters -- it was unlikely the Guard senior would run in all three races. However, that's exactly what he did Saturday, as he competed in the three races, and had his best result in the 800, finishing in seventh place in 2 minutes 2.1 seconds.
