BURROUGHS HIGH — The Burroughs High boys’ basketball team was subjected to a steady diet of three-point attempts in the early going of its opening playoff game. Vista del Lago, from Moreno Valley, came out of the gate of its CIF Southern Section Division IIAA contest and began chucking long-range shots against the Indians. Some of the offerings were five to 10 feet behind the arc and would have been three-pointers in the college game. Luckily for Burroughs, the Ravens couldn’t convert many of their long-distance offerings, as the Indians used a second-half rally to win, 58-48, at Burroughs.

The Burbank High and Bellarmine-Jefferson softball teams have taken separate routes in the CIF Southern Section playoffs this season. The Guards have dominated the first two rounds in Division VII, outscoring their opponents, 34-0, in notching two wins. The Bulldogs, on the other hand, have had to battle and were able to hold on for a pair of 1-0 victories in Division III. Although the teams have taken different paths in the postseason, both have earned berths in the quarterfinals, and both will play home games at 3:15 p.m. Thursday.

BURBANK —With a common goal in mind and hot bats in hand, the Bellarmine-Jefferson High softball team delivered another dominant performance Tuesday. In a CIF Southern Section Division VII second-round playoff game at Bloomington Christian, the Guards racked up an eye-opening 27 hits en route to a 24-3 drubbing of the Ravens. "We hit, and that's definitely our main staple," Bell-Jeff Coach John Castadena said. With the win, the Guards advanced to play Crossroads High at 3:15 p.m. Thursday at home.

I am writing in response to your Sept. 12 article, “Pigeons suspect agrees to deal” concerning the man who was suspected of feeding pigeons, which is classified a public nuisance in Burbank municipal code and is punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. We bought our house in 2001, and since then, a neighbor has put large quantities of bread, etc. out on his lawn almost daily to feed pigeons and other birds. The birds carry the food to our trees where they consume it, and we end up washing off four or more large splats each day from our cars.

BURBANK — The Bellarmine-Jefferson High softball team advanced to the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division VII playoffs with an all too familiar formula that brought it plenty of success in the regular season as well. Fueled by its unrelenting offense, and complemented well by good pitching and solid defense, the Guards had little trouble getting past Public Safety Academy, 10-1, in their playoff opener at McCambridge Park Saturday afternoon. And both aspects of the game were represented well for a Bell-Jeff team that has won 14 of its last 15 games.

BURBANK — It’s the proverbial good news, bad news scenario for the local boys’ basketball teams pertaining to the postseason. The good news is that all four area squads — Burbank, Burroughs, Bellarmine-Jefferson and Providence — qualified for the CIF Southern Section Playoffs. The bad news is that three of the four have to hit the road today for first-round games. The lone team to garner a home contest is the Indians, who were able to advance to the quarterfinals two seasons ago. Here is a look at the first-round matchups:   Vista del Lago at Burroughs : Not only did the Indians receive a home game, but the team is also seeded No. 8 in Division IIAA.

Fans who want to take in Thursday night's Big Game football extravaganza might want to get in line at Memorial Field a little early — like NOW. Individuals probably won't have to show up quite that early. However, those thinking they will be able to arrive a few minutes before the 58th annual cross-town rivalry game between Burbank and Burroughs highs and still get a seat could be left out in the cold. The contest will be a sure sellout, and the event is shaping up to be The Biggest Game in decades.

GROSS PARK - It was relatively easy for the Bellarmine-Jefferson High softball team to score runs in bunches in its opening two games of the CIF Southern Section Division VII playoffs. In fact, the Guards crossed the plate 34 times and held their opponents scoreless in notching two shutout victories. However, through the first three innings of Thursday's quarterfinal game against Bloomington Christian, Bell-Jeff could account for only a single run, as it clung to the slim advantage.

BURROUGHS HIGH — Burroughs High Athletic Director Marty Garrison gets a kick out of looking for former athletes to induct into the school's hall of fame. Scanning through years of information and a large group of deserving individuals, Garrison and others make sure that each year the Burroughs Athletic Hall of Fame is well represented by former Indians standouts. Throughout the years, Garrison said he is continually surprised at the response he gets when he tells a former athlete about his or her induction.
