BURBANK - It was a forgettable second half for the Providence High boys' basketball team in its championship game with Chatsworth in the 25 th annual Providence Paul Sutton Tip-Off Classic. The Pioneers weren't able to find answers for Chatsworth's tenacious defense, particularly in the second half where Providence attempted only 22 field goals and watched as Chatsworth built a double-digit lead in the third quarter and sustained it in the fourth en route to a 73-59 victory at Providence High School.

PROVIDENCE - Just to get to the championship game of the inaugural Liberty League tournament, the Providence High girls' volleyball team had to rewrite history, sweeping a Holy Martyrs team in Monday's semifinal which had previously swept it during the regular season. Repeating that feat in the championship match against Pacifica Christian, though, proved too much to ask on Tuesday night at Providence High School, as the Seawolves came away with a 25-19, 25-16, 21-25, 25-17 victory to secure the Liberty League crown.

Eloise Klein Healy made history as the first poet laureate of Los Angeles, but her own story starts decades ago, when as teacher in Burbank, she set out on path of repeated rejection and, eventually, validation. Appointed in December by L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Healy is now leading a new conversation on poetry in City of Angels - her position is long way from where she started as a freshman at Providence High School in 1957. “It's totally amazing,” she said. “I'm 69 years old. All of a sudden somebody pays attention to what I'm doing.” In high school, Healy played basketball and competed in the Burbank Ponytail softball league with her team, “The Pixies.” At age 21, she began teaching, and in the early 1970s, she lived for a few years on Pepper Street in Burbank, writing six days a week.

Three long awaited science labs were celebrated in a prayer service Monday at Providence High School, officially capping off eight years of work on the $3.2-million project. The state-of-the-art laboratories for chemistry, biology and physics classes were just an idea in 2004. It was a lot of “planning, prodding and praying,” said Head of School Joe Sciuto. Fundraising began in 2007, and by December 2011, construction broke ground. Seeing the project from genesis to fruition was overwhelming for some, including Cathy Boucher, director of operations at Providence.

When then-Burbank High School student Yvonne Soto started work with Burbank Unified School District's Regional Occupation Program in Animal Care, she was by no means a cat lover. But fast-forward three years, and Soto is now not only very fond of felines but is enthusiastically pursuing a veterinary career while working as a vet tech at Media City Animal Hospital in Burbank. In fact, she's not the only one. Katie Hayes and Carlos Rivas, both part of the first ROP in Animal Care program, also turned a semester of volunteering with animals into more than just school credit.
