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.

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.

Ginny English had a decision to make prior to her junior year at Burbank High. She had just completed her sophomore season with the Bulldog track and field team in which she set a lower-division school record in the girls' pole vault. Things looked set for her final two seasons in track, as she had her sights set on breaking the varsity pole vault mark. The only problem was English was also a member of the Burbank choir, and singing had become an important part of her life.
