Matt Schwartz has vaulted himself into some rarefied air at Burroughs High. During his senior season, Schwartz has continued to reach notable heights in the boys' pole vault. What has been more impressive is the athlete's progression on the school's all-time pole vault list in perhaps Burroughs' most illustrious track and field event. "To be among the best pole vaulters in school history is an honor," Schwartz said. "That list is pretty impressive. It's nice to go to school where the record is pretty high.

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.

BURBANK - While it came down to the very end, the Pasadena and Burroughs high girls' track and field teams simply didn't have enough to outdo Glendale's Leana Setian and Lauren Hansen in Thursday's tri-Pacific League meet. The Nitros' duo combined for five victories in a narrow 68-60 win over host Burroughs. Setian and Hansen saved their best and most dramatic finish for last, as they teamed with Kenya Gaskin and Vard Sargsyan to take first in the 4x400-meter relay - the final race of the day - in four minutes 24.50 seconds to just edge Pasadena's team, which clocked in at 4:25.44.

Jeff Tully BURROUGHS HIGH -- Although the winds were blowing hard when the Burroughs High track and field team took on Glendale in a nonleague meet, the gusts didn't seem to affect the Indians. 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.
